This is the worst hospital that has ever been opened in Los Angeles. Visit this hell on earth only and only if you have entirely run out of options. If you have a choice, go to that facility. Certainly, it won’t be as bad as this hellhole. The staff is highly incompetent and end up making decisions that can negatively impact your health. I had to visit this hellhole a few times since this was in my insurance coverage. Every single time, I had to face problems due to the incompetence of doctors and nurses.

As a friend put it, LAC USC is a place where a healthy person comes to get ill, and a sick person comes to meet his maker in heaven.

This was my first visit to the medical center ER, and thankfully, it went off without any issues. The check-in was very easy and was done by a lovely nurse who had a deadly combination of beauty and brains. I might have just rested my bums comfortably on a chair for a second before I got called in. The doctor was another beauty with brains and had excellent bedside manners. She had the time to hear me out and then make a diagnosis. The biggest motivating factor to come here – a humongous free parking lot!!!

This review is for a visit that took place last November on the eve of Thanksgiving. My wife had to be rushed here due to medical urgency. We were a little skeptical about the care that we might get, given the holiday season. However, we got a pleasant shock when we reached the Emergency room. The nurses and the doctors present in the ER were excellent. They took excellent care of my wife. They also made sure that I was ok. I thanked them profusely for working on the eve of Thanksgiving. Thanks to the wonderful staff of LAC USC Medical Center, my wife recovered from her illness in double quick time. Thank You to the nurses and doctors working at LAC for giving it your best shot and being there for the patients. You guys rock!!! Ultimate Respect

This was my third visit to the LAS USC ER. Honestly, the first two visits were not up to the mark, but still, I liked the attitude of the nurses and the doctor. This time, I visited the ER with my wife for a tooth issue. The ER doctor this time was a thorough gentleman and took excellent care of my wife. He inspected her tooth and then gave some meds to tide over and gave a referral for a checkup with the dentist situated on the above floor. We visited the next day, and the dentist was also a wonderful person. The dentist advised tooth extraction and explained in detail how it was going to be beneficial for my wife. We agreed, and the whole procedure was done in less than 30 minutes. Good experience. As they say, third time lucky….
