Had to visit the Whittier Hospital Medical Center a few days back after suffering from a severe back pain which was making me double over. I was not able to stand up straight. I went to the ER where a wonderful gentleman called Dr. Shapiro saw me. He had excellent bedside manners!

He heard me out completely, did not disregard anything and then went ahead and ordered a scan which revealed the source of pain – kidney stones.

He started appropriate treatment and set up an appointment with a nephrologist two days later. I visited the nephro, who addressed my problems to my satisfaction. Very impressed with both the doctors and the care they offered. Thank you

I delivered my first child at WHMC last year. It was an amazing experience. The L&D nurses offered wonderful care and guidance during the entire process. The actual delivery was a little complicated, and I ended up having a C-section, resulting in an extended stay at this place.

However, the postpartum nurse took great care of us. She used to wait in our room until my husband came so that we were not left alone in the room. She even used to rock the baby to sleep. Thank you, WHMC for providing such exceptional care and employing angels like here

I underwent surgery at WHMC recently. I had what could be called the best surgical experience. The staff was amazing. All were highly knowledgeable and very professional. The pre-op nurses, surgical, and the postop nurses were amazing. The surgeon and the anesthesiologist were also wonderful.

They explained what the procedure entailed and made sure that any last minutes doubts and concerns were addressed. The surgery went off well, and so did the recovery phase. Thank you again

Very bad experience here. I am a regular at PIH, but my care was transferred here since it was full. I could not believe the difference between the two hospitals. It was like chalk and cheese. This hospital lacks staff who can handle patients in a humane manner.

The two nurses who were in charge of my care had never heard of HIPAA. They were busy discussing my details when my wife was entering the room. They were rude to everyone and had no bedside manners. Once I was stabilized, I decided to leave the hospital and recuperate at my home.

I won’t be coming back here

This hospital sucks, and it sucks big time. The nurses and doctors have no clue about anything. As if these were not enough, the billing department also leaves its mark and makes sure this was my last visit to this dumpster.

I was having spiking fever, yet was sweating profusely. While I was having a temperature of 103, I was also sweating. The ER nurse and the doctor did not know what to do. They started an IV and an hour later transferred my care to the ICU. The ICU staff ran numerous tests but could not find the source of my illness. When they could not find anything, it was decided to discharge me.

The billing was also not up to the mark. They got my gender as well as spelling wrong. This despite them having a copy of my insurance and them seeing me in person. The final bill was more than $20, 000 and my part was $5000.

Not satisfied with the care, I visited another hospital where one simple test showed the reason for my illness…a liver infection which was playing with my regulatory system…Funnily, the nutcases at WHMC did not do this particular test.

Won’t be back….
