I had suffered a massive attack couple of years ago and was treated at Los Alamitos Medical Center by a wonderful doctor called Dr. Vannatta. Last evening I again started feeling a dull ache. It was not painful and nor was there any symptoms. It was dull ache with a weird feeling. Not being sure about the whole thing drove me to the LAMC ER. Told them my situation and my previous heart history. They take me in pretty quick. The on-call doctor comes and starts assessing me. He orders a blood test, chest-rays, and an ultrasound scan…a pretty hands-on doctor… for the love of God, cannot remember his name.

Anyways, the test reports come and then comes the assessment –“It is not a heart attack.” The problem was due to a previously undiagnosed hernia which was acting up and causing acid reflux — heartfelt gratitude to the entire staff for taking such wonderful care of me. I can safely say that my life is in very good hands.

This review is a bit dated one and for the labor and delivery unit. I was passing by when old memories were trigged, and I thought it would not be fair if I did not write anything about it. I had given birth here. It was not a normal delivery. But thanks to lovely nurses Nancy and Beth, I did not have any issues while delivering. I was not able to thank them enough! They were very kind and highly attentive to all my needs. Thanks to them, what was going to be a very long painful stay, turned out to be a breeze. The doctor and the ultrasound technician were also great. Appreciate everybody. Thanks, everyone!

WORST HOSPITAL EVER!!!!

I was twice transferred to Long Beach Memorial because LAMC’s ER was not up to the mark. It was terrible. What makes the whole process more irritating and annoying is the fact that each time I get transferred, I have to redo all the lab work, because the dumbos have lost the report. How the hell do you lose a lab report? Not once, but twice.

I will now directly visit Long Beach Memorial in case of any emergencies because invariably I would get transferred here due to the incompetence of these idiots.
