This review is strictly for the E.R. I was in the Good Sam E.R. a few nights back, and there was a surprising rush during that time. But I was seen by the doctor and filled my script and walked out within an hour. The check-in was easy-peasy. The nurses were super sweet and very professional. The lady doctor who saw me was a kind lady with excellent bedside manners. She asked all the relevant questions, saw the chart, and then made an accurate diagnosis. They treated me like royalty. Very happy with the service

STAY AWAY FROM THIS GARBAGE.

They are cheaters of the first order and do not have any shame in acknowledging that. I had visited the ER with a severe headache. I was not able to control it with all the available methods and had to visit the ER grudgingly, one might say. The wait time was nearly three hours, after which a doctor saw me. He made all the right noises, and I was happy that such a good guy treated me. I was also given three pills to take. I go home and a few days later get a bill from the hospital. My bill - $3516.00 for the acute care rendered. This did not include the doctor’s bill. The cost of three pills - $35.00. I called up the hospital. They agreed to rectify the bill. After some days, I receive the corrected bill from them. The bill amount - $3500.00. They reduced a princely sum of $16.00. I was not sure how to respond to that. I shudder to think about what would be the ER physician’s fees!!!

This review is for the ER staff, who treated me like a human being. They took me in immediately and then back to the room in a matter of minutes. A wonderful physician saw me and had time to ask me questions and also address my answers. The quality of care was exceptional. The parking was also great. Completely satisfied with the care I got here. Won’t hesitate to return

My son had a medical issue which needed professional care. He was brought here, and the staff took great care of him. This is not a new hospital for us. We are regulars here and even know some doctors by their first name. Our three children were also born at this place. The service, caution, and care that we receive here are excellent. They are very organized, and there is no goofing around. I've been to several other hospitals, but I would always prefer and recommend Good Samaritan. The other hospitals including Stanford are highly overrated and overpriced
