This post is specifically aimed at all the clovis community hospital staff- you guys are true godsends. There’s no better way to put it. A HUGE and heart felt thank you to all of you guys for the great experience here- even though I absolutely loathe hospitals- you guys made it a little more bearable. My intense treatment would’ve been a nightmare if I didn’t have all your support and guidance throughout. Your considerable amount of dedication towards your work and the compassion you guys show to your patients is admirable. Wish all hospitals are like this.

NEVER judge a hospital by how good or bad they may have been in the past- because that varies from hospital to hospital and mostly on the doctor . I remember a few years ago when my mother had a massive brain hemorrhage and how this hospital handled her case. They were extremely efficient and made sure she was cured entirely. Cut to two weeks ago when my father had to be rushed into the ER because of a pretty bad heart attack. He’d been having silent attacks all week apparently, and when we took him in, they were being terribly inconvenient, saying he couldn’t be admitted right then because they were booked solid. What kind of hospital says this to a family that is clearly freaking out?

When they finally made us wait for like 4 hours they took him in and put him on sedation. This went on for a few days before I finally approached them and asked what the hell was going on. They didn’t seem to know, they claimed he was “under observation”. This seemed a little odd to me, because clearly the man had had a heart attack, he didn’t need to be put under observation. When I got a second opinion from my PCP’s friend, he had a look at his lab results and said that there was a clot developing- a rather serious condition caused by the neglection of Clovis! Thoroughly disappointed- needless to say and now that I’ve transferred him, I am getting ready to sue this hospital.

I honestly don’t get how people keep complaining about how busy this hospital is. I hate to break it to you readers, but that's every hospital in Fresno.
If you want a hospital that you can rely on 100%- this is the place to go. Lord knows when you are at a hospital, there are a thousand thoughts running through your brain, the last thing you want to ask yourself is, “Is my family member safe over here?” Clovis has been my #1 choice since a lifetime, and my mother used to work here ages ago.

Sometimes I get so angry at this hospital. Like, insanely mad because of how useless some of the staff is. But other times, my experiences are great that I feel like writing a 5-star review. But I think it depends on what day you go to the ER/ to see your general physician. On a Friday night or Saturday/Sunday, aka, weekends- it is extremely crowded. Like, massively.
Don’t matter if you’ve made an appointment months ago, you will end up waiting for hours. Sometimes they even forget about you. They conveniently “forgot” to call out my name this one time and I waited for 3 hours at least. But on other days, my experience is generally good. Because my general physician works here and he is a wondrous doctor. I call him God. Lol.

Gotta say, I was only at Clovis Community for less than 2 days as an outpatient and I still loved every minute here. There’s something very captivating about their approach towards patients, they make sure you don’t feel like a patient at all, but one of their friends. The service here is amazing, they have free valet parking, all the staff members have a sense of understanding and generosity that is unlike anywhere else I’ve ever been to, especially a hospital. Love!

I felt that the staff was different from most other hospitals- they had this weird expression on their faces. Oh, right, that’s what compassion looks like. So tired of going to hospitals and have people stare at me like it’s my fault that I am HIV positive. Some of them pretended like they had no idea what was going on, which was why they wouldn’t have me.

But let me say something from all the HIV positives in the room…the stereotype about gay men being more HIV positive is now slowly dissipating. There are so many research studies that prove this, and hopefully the world is not too far behind on dropping this tired out stereotype. Anyway, back to the review for Clovis Community. They were the only hospital members that opened up their arms to “our community” with zero hesitation, I didn’t see any weird remarks on their face except for compassion and sympathy- something I think everyone that goes to a hospital deserves for a large part.


Had to go to the lab to get my results and from the ER to the lab, it was extremely crowded. Even so I was expecting to wait there all day and ended up waiting for about 2 hours or less. Not so bad. But if you plan on visiting the ER than rest assured it will take at least 5-6 hours to get out of there. My first visit to the ER at Clovis took me a good 9 hours- the first 3 on waiting my turn (their triage could do better), and then 10-15 minutes of seeing the doctor, and another 3 hours waiting for the lab results.

Then another 3 hours to get myself checked out by the PA and then leave with medication. Basically, it takes up your whole day so don’t be a smart ass and make plans for the rest of the day. OR expect an ER visit to be any shorter, trust me, this is one of the better hospitals in terms of waiting.


If I have a suggestion, it would be to make the whole system computerized, because I’m not sure they have that already – at least in the sections that I went. Even though they emailed me my results and stuff, their organization skills are a little lacking. Plus, it doesn’t help that the staff they have in their admin team is very young and I’m guessing, not so experienced.

This is one of the main reasons why people have to wait for so long, and in some cases if not most, for no reason. Even so, I have a massive amount of respect and regard for the doctors and other staff members at this hospital. Thank you for accepting me as I am without any judgements. Forever grateful. Rock on.

The best place to deliver- they have the answer to all your questions, especially caring and understanding if you are a new set of parents. Absolutely no judgement and that’s the kind of approach I like. Thank you!

What are people so cheery about at this hospital? In my 5 day hospital stay here I don’t think I’ve ever been so vexed in my life. They messed up simple medical procedures, the nurses were all perpetually confused and running around aimlessly and I barely ever saw a doctor. They just showed their faces and vanished. Very disappointed.
