Bloody Hell!!!!

I had to spend more than seven hours in the f*****g ER waiting to be seen by a doctor. My vitals had not been taken even when I came at 5:30 AM. I was starving and hungry and nearly lost it. This place is disorganized. Nobody has any clue on what is going on. I might have asked nearly 15 to 20 nurses when would my turn come, but none of them had any answer to that. As if the wait was not irritating enough, there was a jerk of a security guard who kept on forcing people to sit straight and not put legs on another vacant chair. Seriously!!! First, you have the gumption to make us sit in a very uncomfortable chair for hours and then we cannot even put our feet up…F**k Off man. Needless to say, my patience wore out by 1:00 PM, and I just walked off. Won’t return.

I am in my second trimester, and I had visited the hospital for some weird sensation in the womb. My OB asked me to rush to the nearest ER, and unfortunately, this was the one nearest. They took me in very quickly, took a scan, and then made me wait in the room as they decided the next plan of action. While waiting for the decision, I fell asleep and woke up after five hours, and these bozos were still deciding the next course of action. Common idiots, if there is nothing, then release me. I need to go home and have something to eat. It was becoming difficult to control my anger, and then it finally erupted on the nurse when she said that she had no clue as to when would I be discharged. Finally, after spending nearly eight hours in the hospital, I am finally walking off… A terrible experience. Will never step in again!!!

A visitor’s review. I came to see the newest addition to my family, a lovely bundle of joys – my niece. My family is pleased with the excellent service that Harbor UCLA provided to my sister. The ambiance is okay. However, the nurses and doctors are very amazing and are ready to help you. Security is also top notch.

I underwent cataract surgery at Harbor UCLA way back in 2017. These guys did a great job at that time. Last year, had another cataract operation and the quality of care was the same as in 2017. Both times, the nurses and doctor took great care of me. Could not be more satisfied!

My daughter was a preemie and was admitted to NICU. She was there for nearly a month. Everyone whom we encountered during the month-long stay was great. Not one rude nurse or doctor. Everyone had a wonderful smile and were ready to answer all of my wife and my questions. This was way back in 2015. IDK if it is the same now, but at that time, we were satisfied with the care we got
