Tahoe Forest Hospital is wonderful and absolutely amazing. We are happy that we have such an amazing facility in our neighborhood. My husband was having severe chest pain and we had to rush him to the ER via ambulance. The front desk was exceptional. They directly took us into the emergency room when they saw my husband in pain. They even helped me in filling out various forms.Once we were in the emergency room, the staff immediately took over. They were super nice, caring and most importantly knew what they were doing. We hope that we do not visit any hospital ever again, but if we do, then it would be Tahoe Forest Hospital.

Tahoe Forest Hospital has some of the most remarkable doctors around. They provide exceptional care. My wife had some infection which unfortunately spread to her heart and led to a mild heart attack. The admission process staff, nursing team, and the doctors were absolutely amazing and exceeded our expectations in every regard. The care, communication, and facility ensured that my wife was able to recover quickly from her illness. The coordination between the team ensured that Alia received the most amazing quality of care. The review will be incomplete if I do not mention about hospital cafeteria. Tahoe Forest’s cafeteria is one remarkable place. It offers high-quality food at very reasonable prices. Thanks to such a wonderful staff and excellent facilities, Tahoe Forest Hospital attracts a lot of people.

I am a 38-year-old person living locally in Tahoe City. I was ordered to undergo four tests by my physician as I was suffering from recurring bouts of fever. I visited Tahoe Forest Hospital Lab since I wanted to use the local provider. I got four tests done and nearly flipped out when I saw the bill - $585. I decided to do some digging and called Lab Corp situated in Reno. They offered a price band of around $350. Cash Clinical, also situated in Reno was even cheaper, with the lab offering to do the tests for $150.

I asked the lab owner why was he charging so high, and he just laughed. When he saw I was bloody serious, he ended up giving some vague answers, answers which did not make any sense to me.

Lesson well learned, do not trust your local provider…they might end up cheating you. Well, I have decided never to use the Tahoe Forest Lab again!!
