The doctor that saw me didn't take my word seriously, I didn't feel as though he actually had my best interest in mind and yeah, I was very... I didn't feel very well at all. All I needed was fluids because I was dehydrated and he refused to provide fluids because he deemed that it wasn't clinically necessary. Even though I've been feeling horrible for the last 4 days so.

Came here cause I had Covid symptoms fever,headache,body aches,runny nose,sore tested and the PA said I was negative.The problem is that he had no concern that I had all those symptoms and was just like um your negative.I had him test me with the one that goes to the lab and sure enough Im positive for Covid.Can you imagine how many people come through urgent care with Covid and they tell them nope your negative.This is not a good thing.I brought my son in for the same thing a few months back and the same thing happened they said he was negative when he was really positive.You guys are definitely doing something wrong.I think the guy that swabbed me did not swab long enough.Hope somebody actually reads this and cares to do something about it.

The provider didn't understand much of anything I was trying to say. I subsequently read his notes on the FMH App and only half of what he documented to my medical records was almost close to what said. He was not at all forth coming about what medication, strength or quantity of the medication. I had to question him about each aspect of the prescription. He instructed me to a take a medication for pain, which if he bothered to look at my medication list he'd have noticed I'm already taking 2 forms of that same medication or asked if they were helpful. This provider was located at the PIH urgent care facility in Downey where the wait was close to TWO HOURS!!! I wasn't even allowed to wait in car. I had to stay the full almost 2 hrs in the clinic full of coughing patients when I could very easily just come in from my car every so often to check on my que status. Though I'm fully vaccinated I'm also very immunocompromised and do not appreciate needless exposure. Quite an unpleasant experience all together.

God bless all the health work force for all the sacrifices they do to keep us well.

Hello, the office did not provide me with an wait time. We were there for over 2, 1/2 hours, and my son did not get seen. We left the office and I will be calling to request a refund for my co pay. Thank you.

The ladies in the front were very rude. My prescription was not sent to the Walgreens which resulted to me coming back to the location hours later to make sure it was sent.

Hello. I just responded to the survey using the key tones and I pushed 1 through 4, and most of them I meant to push 4 that my visit was very good, the provider was very helpful and respectful, and took care of what we were asking for. And I think I was pushing response like no or not at all, which I didn't mean to push. So just disregard the key entries and know that we had a really good visit. Thank you.

Your service seems to be about Gary Ramirez who I never saw. I only saw an LVN, I believe her name was Maria.

Don't understand why issue a prescription that isn't covered by insurance. Was no need to go to pharmacy.

When I asked, how long was the wait with a nurse that was doing the vital signs. She responded 3 to 4 hours. When actually was only 30 minutes. She was not very courteous. Thank you.

Well, the attention is very good, everyone was very kind. It was easy to understand even though my language is Spanish understands English, but they very clearly understood me perfectly. The only thing was they sent me medication, but it seems to me that it is necessary, how to do more tests because, however, dressed in abdominal pain, the medication kept the pain from sleeping for a while, but with the pain it returned, it means that something is happening, I think they wanted how to do more tests and I don't usually send medicine to calm the pain that hurts because something is happening, right, that would be all.

Will recommend it.

The day I walked in that evening. There was a 3 hour rate ... 3 hour waiting time. And it took a little bit longer than that. I didn't understand why they were calling some people that came after me. But other than that, it was a very busy evening. It was a long wait, other than that, everything else. Was just fine.

This physician's assistant sat on top of the sink. He only listened to my ears and I mean, check my ears and listened to my heart. Told me I had a viral infection. I demanded, insisted to take a Covid test, and after he was going to let me leave the office believing I only had a viral infection. Then after I insisted on taking the Covid test because I coughed then it comes back and says, I'm positive for coronavirus. That is horrible Health Care. He says, well, we don't test everybody who coughs. He didn't take any notes on the computer of our visit, and then his nurse asked me to leave when I wanted to speak to the nurse. This is one of the worst experiences. Please call me at [PHI removed]. I'd like an administrator to please call me because this was horrible. Here I am contagious and this man is talking about how I just have a viral infection when it was actually coronavirus. He should not be a physician's assistant. Thank you.

Nothing was great. The wait time was almost 2 hours just to be seen and on top of it, he didn't really care for what I have. He just wanted to send me home because I just have the cold. I'm still sick; It's already been a week and I'm still sick. And he only gave me cough medication, because I request to have some medication. It didn't want to do for me no covid-19 test. You didn't want to do for me, any type of testing and check what's going on with me. He just told me it's just a common cold. Very bad doctor. I will never ever step over there. I'm going to go ahead and change my insurance provider for sure this time.

There no wait on been seen and I like that.

I went to Urgent Care. I was seen right away. I also had to fill out a medical release form, while I was waiting. I got in pretty quickly. Got x-rays on my shoulder, pretty quickly. Got answers on my shoulder and my hip pretty quickly. And I was very satisfied with my visit there. Thank you.
November 04, 2021
the technician of the Xray's took forever to appear. I waited for more than 40 minutes

Provider explained everything really well.
October 07, 2021
The doctor explained me attentively ... but they left me in the room waiting for the doctor 40 minutes when the room outside was empty I was only in the waiting room when I entered because I went to the emergency room and made me wait for 40 minutes (unreadable) I would have died of so much waiting, the nurses are not very friendly, the best care was that of the doctor despite his long wait
