Surprised by how awesome the ICU staff was, very loving and caring, I came with my brother who had just been in a car crash, and the doctor personally came and saw me, sat down with me, and discussed all the options he had. Even though surgery was the only option that made sense, he also explained the other options and helped me weigh the pros against cons. The only hospital where you can expect this level of care. This is what humanity looks like….

Inefficient, incapable people working at this messed up hospital. Stunned by how stupid our doctor was. Prescribing the wrong things for my old, sick father and then claiming it was the nurse’s mistake? Then when confronted about it, claiming that we made a mistake while filing out the forms? Definitely untrue and not cool. My father stayed here for 2 months before passing away. He had to be put on ventilator and somehow the doctors weren’t hopeful- they made it clear to us weeks ahead that he was going to die.

My experience with the Labor And Delivery Department at John Muir Health Hospital:

To sum it up in one word- terrific. As a single mother I’ve had many challenges come my way throughout my pregnancy journey but I never thought it’d be hard to find the perfect hospital to give birth in. Finally narrowed down my list to 2 hospitals and was happy with John Muir- even though appointments with both hospitals were equally good, I felt a difference in aura between the two.

John Muir’s had this holistically sound atmosphere making me want to choose it immediately. I was happy that my search was finally over. Booked my first appointment with my potential OB. Absolutely loved her- a very spunky, witty and super smart Indian gyneocologist, Dr. Singh. She made me fall in love with my uterus (lol) but no really, she was just insane. Her tips on how to avoid morning sickness and how to control the perpetual need to urinate were just some of the things I learned from her. She was downright amazing and I recommended her to all my friends at work. She is still my gyneo, bee-tee-dubs (hehe).

So months went by and I was finally due. It was pretty intense, I was 5 inches dilated for more than 10 hours and even though it was highly uncomfortable, Dr Singh kept checking up on me even though she was supposed to take her kids to Disneyland. Even though I wouldn’t want to be that sort of a working mom I really appreciated everything she did for me. So I guess you could say this review is dedicated to her!

Oh also special props to one nurse Rebecca for being the sweetest person in the whole OB team- you were the most efficient nurse during my pregnancy, always looking out for me and wiping my forehead with a cold wash cloth. I could honestly go on and on but to sum it up: great doctors, great nurses, great technicians, great everything. Super clean hospital, even though it’s a maternity ward, very helpful people who will guide you to the right rooms, loved everything about this hospital and especially this experience. Baby Tia and myself are forever greatful. Xoxo.

I am a medical volunteer at John Muir- have been here for 2 weeks now- absolutely psyched to work with these amazing people. Have volunteered in 3 hospitals just this year and already think that John Muir Health was the best of the lot. Respectful doctors who are down to earth, helpful nurses who will have your back no matter what. Definitely a great place to work at. Hospitals could always use an extra set of hands!

Current situation: waiting desperately for any kind of update. My girlfriend is in the operating theater and just heard that the operation which was supposed to happen at 5 pm has still not started (it’s 10 pm now). Very annoyed and disturbed, I vowed not to go back home until I got some clarity about this and now I’m starting to lose it. But the lesson learnt was valuble: stay away from Muir. They are just delaying the operation to drain more money from the insurance company because they literally don’t have an excuse for delaying it. What kind of a hospital does this? Just for money?!
