My husband underwent cataract surgery at Scripps Surgical Center a few months back. An excellent ophthalmologist conducted the surgery. It was a complicated one due to the application of additional LASIK procedure which resulted in a billing issue, but nothing major. The office staff resolved the matter in a jiffy. Our “surgical” experience was great. Looking forward to seeking care here

My daughter had to be rushed to Scripps Emergency after having a pretty bad fall. Jane received excellent care. Everyone who treated her was very compassionate, highly professional, and knowledgeable. She ended up getting a few stitches and an overnight stay for a CT scan to rule out any hemorrhage. She was beaming when I asked her whether she was treated well. That smile itself told that she had been treated well. Thank you, Scripps, for taking good care of my munchkin.

One can say that my family is a regular at this hospital ever since we moved here from Alaska. My son was born here, and the Labor and Delivery staff took excellent care of both mother and son. She had a complicated delivery and had to spend some time in the hospital, but no complaints whatsoever. I recently went to the ER; again, no issues. Was seen by a wonderful doctor who had that extra minute to listen to me and address my complaints. I was in and out of the ER within an hour. My father also was seen in the ER, and even he had no problems. An added advantage was the easy parking. It relieves the patients or the loved ones of a very big headache; it is a small hospital, but the standard of care is excellent. If we have any medical issues, we know that we have a trusted friend nearby.

These folks do not have enough knowledge to diagnose a problem properly. Wife went to the ER with a swollen leg. The idiots who saw her did not order any scans or tests, just gave some antibiotics and pain meds. What’s more, these bozos also discovered that she had an infection, when there was no open wound or injury. The meds made her situation worse, and I had to take her to an orthopedist who diagnosed her with frayed tendons, which required a boot, some PT, and a script of prednisone. Prednisone resulted in the swelling coming down, which in turn alleviated the pain.

BTW the goofballs charged me 3.5K for the incorrect diagnosis. Won’t return…

The attitude of the staff is okay. But they do not give the proper medications. My son waited in the ER for nearly four hours with a 10+ pain, but the nurses did not give anything for the pain. Moreover, they are so slow that one could die before getting treated here. I would not recommend anyone coming here for a medical emergency
