My second and last visit to the Petaluma Valley Hospital was terrible. The experience was beyond words.

I had been there once before and was treated very well. That impressed me, and when I needed to get some medical attention, I decided to come here. Well, it was a terrible decision. The nurses in the ER were very rude, and I felt I was being discriminated. The nurses talked, but in monosyllables.

The doctor was no different. When I was able to meet him after waiting for nearly five hours, he was not keen to talk. He saw the chart, asked some questions, all canned, ordered a test, and then diagnosed me and gave me meds — no question of listening to me or taking my inputs.

These people made me feel I was a nuisance, and I should not have come here in the first place. It was a bad experience, so bad that I have decided to shift my care to some other hospital where people would at least talk and treat you as a human being and not just a number!!!!

This was my wife’s third visit to the PVH emergency room this past month. All three times, she was treated exceptionally. Evie went in for different reasons and saw different doctors all the three times, and she was highly impressed by every single doctor. They were exceptional, had wonderful bedside manners, and heard her out very patiently. The doctors and nurses were friendly, caring, very courteous, very professional, and highly knowledgeable. All her problems have been addressed to her satisfaction. Thank you.

My father had to stay in PVH for severe cases of bronchitis and pneumonia during the past six months, and he received tender loving care which he deserved. They gave him due respect and did not give him any chance to complain. My father recovered very well from both the ailments. The doctors and nurses were outstanding and walked that extra mile in order to ensure that he was comfortable during his stay and received the best possible care.

Very pleased with the way Petaluma Valley Health has treated my father. We highly appreciate it. All the people involved in his care would be in our prayers
