Had THE BEST experience at Desert Springs. I hate reading reviews online so seldom post anything about hospitals but honestly my experience here was unlike anything else. It always sucks when you have to bring in sick family members to hospitals but it’s always a nice surprise when the care you receive is next level.

If you have any questions about anything during the procedure or after for that matter you can ask anyone. And I mean anyone. Even if they are not part of your treatment they will guide you to the right place. Which a lot of people don’t do, they’re not very helpful in hospitals but that was not my experience at Desert springs.

The only issue I faced had to do with a hospice company whose nurse was part of the caregiving team for my mother. She was a little rude and outspoken here and there but that has nothing to do with the hospital.

There’s no coordination you are expected to wait for long periods of time at once not appreciated especially for patients that have little children at home and cannot afford child care this is not done I told them tiem and time again that I had to leave asap but they said they could make no exceptions not amused.!!!

How do people say “my nurse was so kind to me” at Desert springs it’s beyond me.. because I swear the two weeks that I was admitted here the nurses were not only very rude but abusive in ways I don’t wish to discuss here. But I’ll tell you this.. they did have intentions of making me suffer. And all because I asked one of them why they were wasting their time on phone call. Well I’m sorry but it’s true. I hate people who are not efficient at their jobs. Especially when it comes to treating me.

And it’s not just me you know. I was sitting across from this lady who had to get a tetanus shot and was scared shitless. She kept asking the nurse if she could get a glass of water and she was just cruel. Kept saying no not until you get the injection. And was making her suffer by counting down each time she was going to inject her. Bottom line: stay as far away as you can. It’ll do you good.

The staff are friendly and helpful have no issues with them.
I wasn’t treated by a doctor but by a nurse practitioner who was very steady with me even though I had a broken arm.
Was very aware of my pain and was efficient with treating me.
Also explained everything step by step later on. Was happy.

Can’t say enough nice things about the staff at Desert Springs. The kind of love and gratitude I felt here, I don’t think I’ve felt it anywhere else. Trusted my daughter’s life in their hands and it was a good decision. Even though I’d never heard of it before somehow after chatting with the doctor and surgeon I felt this would be the optimal choice for her. And thank heavens we went for it because the surgeon said later on waiting would’ve brought about more complications.. so that’s good.

Now, about the surgical team that my daughter had. They were on the 2nd floor and I’ve heard the reputation of the 2nd floor surgeons is pretty good. They are called the dream team by many families and for good reason. They won’t let you down. After that she was taken to the 5th floor and they were even better (not saying better than 2nd floor, just like better). Don’t think my love for them will ever fade. Their care and concern for patients is like a family member and not a patient, which is what you’ll find gravitating about them.

The nurses, contrary to popular belief are the sweetest souls in this hospital. We personally interacted with 8-9 nurses on both floors combined and not one of them was bad. Even the male RN who was on night shift was extremely efficient and kept asking my daughter if she needed anything in the wee hours of the night. If I have one concern for them it’d be they could use some sleep- some of them do look extremely sleep deprived.

Other than that no complaints about this hospital. One of the best ones I’ve been to so far and from the deepest depths of my soul, I want to thank you guys for such amazing care given to my daughter. To make a 14 year old feel comfortable in a hospital setting is rather challenging but somehow you guys managed to do so.

Would say any hospital would be better than this hospital. Even NO hospital would be better because they overcharge you like mad. If you use a tissue paper they will probably charge you for that too. After a visit to the ER and no prescription, nothing I got mailed a bill of $4500!! Outrageous.
