These people need to differentiate between a real emergency and a one that is emergency but can be handled later. I had to rush to this godforsaken shithole a few nights back after I felt something got stuck while I was eating (Heimlich did not help). I come here, am taken in quickly, and asked to get x-rays. I get it and then the whole ordeal started. They made me sit for nearly three hours with a thing stuck in my throat, and every movement was pushing it down. I was worried if it would perforate my esophagus.

Every fifteen minutes, my wife would ask my status, and she would be told, I am next. This went on for three hours. Finally, it was my turn. The doctor is an expert, and the whole thing gets over in five minutes.

This could have been done three hours before so that I need not wait at all. Very cruel and horrible! I have decided to seek care elsewhere in case of any emergency. At least I will be alive.

Alta Bates has been there my entire life. My sister and I were born here, and we have turned out very well. I also decided to bring my child to this world at this wonderful hospital. My mother was accompanying us, and she said the care had not changed all these years. Now, that is something.

The staff at Alta Bates were fantastic. I can't think that I could have got a much better birth experience. The nurses, prenatal and postpartum, were very friendly and helped me through the whole process.

The only blip in this otherwise excellent care is the food. Please do yourself a favor and avoid ordering the food. Get someone to bring you the food from outside. The food was unpalatable.

Excluding the food, it was a wonderful experience

Had to make a quick detour to the ER a few nights back. Everybody was caring and super friendly. I think I was lucky as I was in safe hands the whole while.

People working in the ER have a tough job and very often deal with serious emergencies; emergencies which might not turn out well for many. My only sincere request to people out there is to smile at them and thank them for what they do. They do deserve it. It will brighten their day, and help you to become more positive.

I pray that nobody should visit an ER, but if you do, then head straight to this place. They will take excellent care of you.

This is the second-worst hospital in the whole world. The crown for the worst hospital in the world would go to Eden Medical Center situated in Castro Valley (those idiots missed cancer in my father).

Coming to this hospital, NO ONE, I repeat not a single soul knows how to interact with a person. This place is the prime example of the right hand not knowing what the left hand is doing. The nurses are always busy and are least bothered about providing an adequate status update to family members. The care provided is also subpar. You press a call light, and these twits would turn up maybe an hour or two hours later. Case managers don't return calls. Discharge planning is the messiest that you can ever come across. PLEASE AVOID THIS HOSPITAL LIKE THE PLAGUE!!!!

We had a wonderful birthing experience at this outstanding hospital! This past June, my wife delivered here. We have nothing but wonderful things to say about this hospital. The nurses are the best out there and genuinely care about you. The doctors are not far behind and provide the best care possible. If you wondering where to deliver, then this is the place to come
