The care I received yesterday at Banner Desert Medical Center was excellent!! I received excellent service from the transportation unit. My nurse, as well as the PA, was great. I had gone there after I did not feel my baby. The ER nurses took me in and brought back almost immediately. The PA came and checked out and ordered a scan which revealed nothing serious. As a precaution, I was advised to stay overnight, and in case nothing happens, then I could leave. I agreed, and I walked out of the door without any issues. My date is set for July 20, and cannot wait to come back to this wonderful hospital for delivering my baby. Thanks for wonderful care!!

One cannot get worst hospital than Banner Desert Medical Center. I am above 50 and a diabetic. I was feeling woozy early in the morning two days back and promptly visited the ER. Once in, I was triaged and got back. They, however, made me wait for nearly an hour before I could see the doctor. The doctor comes in and orders a sugar check. The tech comes, checks the sugar and then walks off. He forgot to wipe off my finger. I was shifted to a room and was started on IV. I never saw the face of the doctor again. After six hours at the hospital, I was discharged by the PA. Nobody told me sugar readings. Even while being discharged, nobody told me what the problem was. They said you are good to go. I am not sure if I was given this special care or everybody receives this care. Won't step again!!!

Banner is filled with idiots who masquerade around as nurses and doctors. I was having severe chest pain and being on the wrong side of 50; I was anxious. The moment I am taken in, a nurse comes and very rudely starts asking me questions. I felt offended, and I let it know. There was no change. Another idiot comes and jerks my hand to take the vitals. She concludes that I am faking the chest pain because the blood pressure is not very high. I somehow control my anger. After these nincompoops go, I wait for another two hours before a doctor comes and see me. She looks at me and says, you might be having indigestion. Hello!! What about an EKG? Use the stethoscope, lady….

So after waiting for nearly four hours, all I get is a scrip for antacid! I walk off and the next day, go to a nearby hospital ER where scans reveal I indeed had a mild heart attack. So much so for Banner’s antacid!!!!

I had a good time at Banner ER. Went in with a deep gash on the ankle after a butcher’s knife accidentally fell on it. I lost a lot of blood. The ER staff took me in, and the doctor came to see me within a few minutes. The nursing team cleaned up the wound, and the doctor sutured me up in a jiffy. I was also given a unit of blood to compensate for the blood loss. The doctor ensured I have a great experience with one wisecrack. “Take care, do not let butchers come near you.” Really appreciate the staff and the doctor for the wonderful care

They took good care of my mother. She was down with fever and diarrheas. She had passed out while we were reaching the ER. The front desk saw her condition, and she immediately let us in and allowed the treatment to start. Only when she was stabilized, did she come and take all the necessary details. It is very rare to have such a caring and empathetic person in the staff. Banner, wrap her up in a cocoon and do not let her go. She is an asset. Too bad, I could not catch her name
