Patient Reviews

January 13, 2022
Thank you so much for providing quick-results Covid testing.
January 13, 2022
My Dr. Was very easy to talk to, he explained things to me on a level that was relatable.??
January 11, 2022
I was pleased with how quickly I was able to get a Covid test at this facility as busy as they were first thing in the morning. This urgent care facility was very organized, professional and most of all very welcoming.
January 11, 2022
I throughly understand the circumstances of an urgent care facility but 4 hrs of waiting was a bit much.
December 28, 2021
The doctor was great, but the overall UC was terrible. It took an hour and a half just for the front desk to take insurance information and another 3 hours to see the doctor. The waiting room was extremely packed (absolutely no distance at all) and with the 4.5 hour wait time, if you didn't go in with Covid, you definitely got Covid while you were there. I asked the front desk if I could wait in the car and leave my phone number for them to call when it was my turn because I did not feel safe and they said "absolutely not. We are too busy and that is too complicated." What kind of healthcare office does not abide by Covid protocol and lets patients sit in a room of 30+ other sick patients without caring if what anyone has is transmissible?
December 28, 2021
My responses are for this visit only. Waiting for 4 hrs. In a very crowded room full or sick people, and being sick yourself, to see a doctor was very unpleasant. The front office receptionist was rude. Her attitude was unpleasant. The male nurse was nice and courteous. The doctor was ok., but wished he had explained better.
December 28, 2021
Although busy and overcrowded due to the current COVID onslaught, the staff were ALL VERY PROFESSIONAL and ATTENTIVE. THANK YOU
December 28, 2021
although i had a good experience with the specific dr it was a little unsettling that he gave me results to a test we hadnt even taken yet.
December 27, 2021
The wait was 4 hours to see the provider to get evaluated for COVID so as not to pay out of pocket for a test. PIH should have insurance cover all COVID tests with or without seeing a PCP, especially when a patient is symptomatic. This could cut down the wait time for patients.
December 27, 2021
Fast and courteous service! Everyone was attentive and caring including the security guard!
December 27, 2021
I was at Urgent Care Whittier. A lot of sick people. Security guard was helpful, everyone was polite. Dr. Was great. Thank you Frontline workers!!!! My first case of Covid, I'm vaccinated.
December 22, 2021
Terrific Doctor. Terrific staff. You know when you go to urgent care, you might get a PA, and that is not optimal, but a doctor is a great thing.
December 21, 2021
Kind & Quick!!
December 20, 2021
My first time with this young doctor. I really liked him, as he was knowledgeable, candid, clear. The staff also were professional and attentive.
December 20, 2021
Keep up the good work
December 17, 2021
Dr. Banerjee was able to quickly help me and the treatment has worked already (about 15 hours since I saw him yesterday).
December 17, 2021
Yes, the doctor was super, the help was courteous, and I'm very pleased.
December 16, 2021
Yes, this doctor was extremely helpful, he explained things thoroughly. He answered my questions. I didn't feel rushed and he told me the medication you wanted and explain why. And how to take it. The staff there kept me informed because there was quite a wait at the Urgent Care. They kept me updated on when I'd be next, and and I appreciate that. So this was an outstanding staff that day and doctor.
December 16, 2021
The urgent care was extremely busy. The staff and the doctor were attentive and friendly.
December 15, 2021
Receptionist at the front desk asks why I need to see the doctor. I don't think anyone wants to tell their symptoms to the receptionist with other patients present in the waiting room.
December 15, 2021
Dr. Banerjee was just the kind of doctor I like. He was thorough in his questions and analysis, made an accurate diagnosis, prescribed appropriate medicines, and he spent the right amount of time with me. I hope to get him if I ever go back to PIH's Whittier Urgent Care.
December 15, 2021
I've had multiple good experiences here.
December 05, 2021
Very impressed with the care and treatment I experienced
December 01, 2021
Provided thorough information and made me feel that they understand your nervous/unwell feeling and your sickness, including the nurse and the doctor.
November 30, 2021
From the time I walk in the office everyone was very kind and helpful, Both Doctors where very kind and helpful.
November 29, 2021
Very pleased for the doctor services and the treatments. Very happy, want to thank the doctors very much. Hopefully your office staff is very courteous, you know, very nice. They are professional. Doctors and nurses, and everyone in the office. Thank you.
November 29, 2021
the advice and rx suggested are helping.
November 29, 2021
I saw Dr. Banerjee at urgent care, he explained exactly what was wrong and what I can use to relieve my pain.
November 25, 2021
The assisting nurse was not friendly at all. She did not greet us, no eye contact and did not smile at us once.she gave me a previous prescription to fill at the pharmacy that was prescribed a few weeks earlier along with the new one. I felt uneasy up until we met the doctor.
November 24, 2021
It was quite satisfactory in the consultation both as the staff and with the doctor and I have no complaints at the moment from the professionals who work there. Thank you very much and goodbye.
November 24, 2021
I think that doctor didn't really take too much time. He didn't really examine me, take my, you know, like check for heartbeat. Like, I don't know. I just I just feel that he...he didn't spend much time and I'm still sick and it wasn't...I don't think it was an allergy, that I have. So, I don't know.
November 24, 2021
Hi, I went Urgent Care on the 24th because my, I had a problem with. I was vomiting a lot. Not vomiting. No, I would use the restroom a lot. So I was concerned because I'm diabetic. So I went for that reason, I went to see the doctor. He was very well, informed, I'm very satisfied with his answers. He took the time to explain everything to me, which most doctors don't, and he's very exceptional. I was very happy with him. So, I would recommend him for any, any to any of my relatives, or anybody because I was really happy with with the outcome of my, of my visit. If you have any questions, you can call me at [number removed], and thank you. Have a nice. Have a nice day. Bye.
November 24, 2021
I appreciated how quickly I was treated. The Doctor was very patient and answer all my questions with detailed and easy to understand information. Thank you!
November 23, 2021
Dr B was professional and welcoming to my daughter, she was a little apprehensive to be examined by a male doctor but his mannerisms and warm approach put her at ease, her and I both appreciate the time doc took with her exam and to answer any questions she had.
November 23, 2021
That team was fantastic.
November 22, 2021
Yes, I was very grateful. They help me, I wasn't paying the reception has helped me, I had I had a bladder infection and she took me in right away to the to the woman stopped into the women's bathroom and I gave a specimen and I was seen immediately and I'd I really have always like going there and I really do appreciate all the services that everyone does and I think they're excellent and they're very efficient. I will go back there again. Thank you.
November 22, 2021
Great experience! Thanks!
November 22, 2021
The doctor was kind and personable. He made me feel comfortable and well looked after. I highly recommend him.
November 17, 2021
The staff personnel were cordial and timely, giving me and my daughter a fine experience!
November 15, 2021
Very impressed with Dr. Banerjee's bedside manner! He cited studies and rationales so I could make an informed decision. So polite, knowledgeable, and respectful! Thank you for your excellent care. Office staff was very friendly which in turn made all of us more patient with the long wait to see the MD (2 hours). Busy day in urgent care!
November 15, 2021
I had to wait in pain somewhat for two and half hours before I was with the doctor.
November 15, 2021
Wait time in urgent care too long
November 15, 2021
They nurse, [name removed] was very nice and attentive.
November 15, 2021
I've had a very good and nice experience with this Dr.& Facility. Thanks so much.
November 14, 2021
The staff was exceptionally professional, the wait was rather long but that was because there was a lot of people there and lot of older people moved slow so I understood the problem. Overall, I give you 100, I'd give you 100.
November 11, 2021

November 09, 2021
Hi, I thought the doctor was very well informed, very attentive listen to my issues, provided a good method of trying to heal my leg. So, he was really, really great. And next time I go there I look for him. Thank you.
November 03, 2021
I was on cobra and was told at first that I was not able to be seen and in fact it took me a hour to figure things out after I was the one that had to call my insurance and HR. I was not told I can sign a waiver as a option and I had to hear it from PIH HR. I did let the front office know that I was on cobra and that Blue shield messed up and expired me due to them not receiving my info from HR even thou I did pay my cobra on November 1st. I just wish I would have gotten a little help to figure things out instead of just being brushed off.
November 02, 2021
wait time was a bit long, but once I got into a room, it all went fast. Dr Banerjee is very caring and really seems to like his work.

October 31, 2021
The doctor was quick to respond to my appointment. He was better than any doctor at that place that I've ever spoken to was an emergency room. He was thorough. He was friendly. He was warm. He was empathetic. He was, he had empathy. He was helpful. He was patient. He explained everything. And let me ask questions, and was thorough at explaining more. He, he was one of the best doctors I've ever seen at that location. The other one that I had, kind of made me not want to go back to that same facility, but I went because because I needed help. And actually I'm going to put the medicine right now. And I'm, I was thinking of the doctor, but he was excellent and he's young. And he's ... he's committed to his job and very

Already feeling some relief from the medication prescribed ??
October 26, 2021
It was one of the best urgent care experiences we've had. From the moment we were taken back, to the time we were discharged, every single staff member we met was very attentive.
October 26, 2021
Great experience of medical care provided.
October 25, 2021

This was an Urgent Care visit not an office visit.
October 19, 2021
Courteous and friendly facility. Was seen by a very good doctor. Thank you.
October 19, 2021
Though the doctor and nurse staff were all pretty professional, the front desk person was really lacking in cordiality and common manners. She could have made people feel much more welcomed as were all there for urgent care and could use a more caring attitude. The doctor was very quick and felt he could have explained further but I got treated for what I needed and I guess that's what counts.
October 14, 2021
I needed more care and ultimately went to PIH emergency
October 14, 2021
The Doctor & entire staff acknowledged everyone walking into that facility, as well as walking out. They seemed to enjoy working w/each other and were very kind and respectful toward me and my needs. Made me feel welcomed & worth their attention. A great, unexpected, experience, even though I was feeling down & out. I wish that group of people to be my regular doctor's office! Thank you to them for showing up to continue caring for others through these times.
October 11, 2021

October 11, 2021
Doctor told me I was to take the antibiotic 2x a day for 10 days. The prescription that was called in is only for 5 days. The assistant wasn't very friendly she didn't give me all the paper work doctor wanted they had to call me back into Urgent care. Everyone else was friendly.

I was very thankful to the staff that was very sensitive to the needs of my son who has autism and they accommodated us really quick and just were, very accommodating to us, so I'd like to say, thank you.

This is [PHI removed]. I didn't have an appointment on October 1st. I'm just receiving this survey now and I'm responding to it. But my experience there has been very positive largely due to the fact that I am usually a patient of [name removed] who treats me with great respect. And we have some real conversations and he gives me an adequate program to keep me going strong of [PHI removed]. Okay. Bye.
