July 27, 2022
Doctor was rude and condescending. And cut me off when I was talking to give me his answer, like he was annoyed and didn't need to hear what I had to say. I felt embarrassed and like I had wasted his time or something.
July 15, 2022
excellent service from everyone, particularly from J. Fernandez!
July 15, 2022
Everyone was nice, helpful and the process was quicker than I expected. Great experience.
July 13, 2022
Everyone was very professional
July 06, 2022
Good afternoon. All the staff at the urgent care Bloomfield was very nice. The greeting was nice, the young lady, who brought me in was very nice, just very joyful. The nurse, as well, and then, the second person, which I think was a nurse was also very nice. Everybody was very pleasant and I shared that while I was at my visit.
July 01, 2022
Thank you for all your help. I feel better.
June 22, 2022
Did not feel I received enough time with Joseph. I had more questions, but felt like he was in a hurry to see the next patient. He prescribed 2 medications, one I had taken before and did not need explanation, but the other was new and when I asked about side effects was only told it might make me drowsey. When I got the prescription, there were many side effects that I should have been made aware of including that it could cause suicidal feelings and if I stopped taking could cause other problems. In fairness to Joseph, the pharmacy did not explain these side effects either. I decided not to take the medication without speaking with my primary care doctor. I was not very pleased with the service I received. I have been to this urgent care several times and I not had any issues before.
June 21, 2022
(unreadable) Yes, we were at the clinic on the 21st of June and they treated her very well, thank God the doctor gave her medicine and she is doing very well, thank you very much.
June 16, 2022
Actually, I went to Urgent Care. I didn't schedule an appointment. I went into urgent care so it's not like some of the questions your about, timely manner, to set an appointment. There was no appointment, I walked in signed in and waited for a doctor to be called because I went to Urgent Care so. Yes, everything was treated very well. He listened to me and spectated where the problem was and he had the right answer. So, that's it. Thank you.
June 16, 2022
June 14, 2022
Re: appointment. It was not necessary for further appointments therefore my "No" answer.
June 05, 2022
Yes, I like to say that I was really impressed with the facility, the urgent care. It was my first time going there for a visit. I like the fact that it's conveniently located to where I live. It's only one block for my home. Also like to say that the facility was very clean and all the staff was very respectful and helpful. I felt really welcomed when I entered into the building and to the office and the nurse practitioner I believe, his name is Mr. Fernandez was very professional, efficient kind, he listened to everything that I had to say. And he also made me feel welcome and very, and very trusted. So I really appreciate that. And I just thank you.
June 05, 2022
The MA who was very nice and so was the LVN and so was the MD, the doctor, the only issue I had is he overly prescribed the amount an antibiotic for my child. I think it was a little bit too much compared to his weight. I had to double check and make sure with his pediatrician and they thought it was a little bit too much, especially on the amount he should take daily. That's all everything else went fast. Super clean it. If you could just double check on the amount of prescriptions he gives the child or based on the weight that would be great. But that's it. Thank you. Bye.
June 03, 2022
Yeah, they are very nice to me. They're able to see me and help me with my condition, which was good and in a polite, fast manner, which was great and I was able to get the service I needed and the treatment I needed as well. Thank you. Really appreciate it to nurse practitioner Joseph was really good at helping me out. I really appreciate him and all the staff there.
May 29, 2022
The front desk staff was rude and shared I would have to pay $35 to see a privider without a guarantee I could take a covid test (even though my boss and intern shared with me they had covid and were exposed with covid and I am the only one who wears a mask in my office --and sit less than 6 ft apart from my co-workers). I was only person in the waiting room at the time and this is what is wrong with healthcare and why there is a high transmission rate of covid in our communities. I have lossed many people in my community to covid and have high risk parents --this was the only provider open but the front desk staff I experienced --is what is wrong with healthcare and why people lose their loved ones when turned away for PCR covid-19 tests (when everywhere else was closed on memorial day weekend).
May 26, 2022
Staff was excellent from the from desk to the nurses and assistant in the back office. Everyone was friendly and caring.
May 18, 2022
I never saw this MD (Dr. J. FERNANDEZ). I answered this questions in regards for the LVN (name removed), as he was the only staff i came in contact with. Good job (name removed). What i am unhappy about is the fact that my PCP was unavail to give me a covid Rx (she was not in for the day) so i called urgent care back and they wouldn't give me a phone interview/ e-prescribe.. they would rather have me come back in, despite testing (+) and being symptomatic. My husband did not have this issue with his medical service! I am a FTE employee, a nurse for PIH and shocked at the way we're receiving care...
May 03, 2022
This office needs to work on their time management. We waited for almost 2 hours before being seen and with a child, that a long wait.
April 26, 2022
I love this doctor. I like it, he care me very soon. Thank you.
April 26, 2022
First time there and I would definitely go back
April 22, 2022
I've never been to this urgent care before and I have to say the whole experience was great from start to finish. The staff was friendly and efficient, Joseph Fernandez made me feel comfortable from the moment he walked into the room. He explained everything and I was comfortable with his conclusions. Yes I would definitely go back again if needed.
April 19, 2022
I just want to say that everyone there was very very courteous and kind and made me feel very comfortable and the doctor himself listen to me and helped me with my concerns and I'm very very grateful to all of you thank you so very much from the bottom of my heart
April 15, 2022
All of the staff we're very pleasant and Mr. Fernandez the registered nurse was very friendly and informative and answered all of my questions. I didn't feel rushed or anything. Thank you.
April 07, 2022
would prefer doctor instead of PA.
April 01, 2022
I was mostly impressed. With a timely manner, I was saying. And out courteous. Everyone treated me...Yes, I will recommend it to family and friends. And for myself, thank you.
April 01, 2022
The doctor was very polite and paid much attention to what was going on. He immediately recommended that I go to the ER because he that what I had needed to be seen in the hospital and he was correct. I ended up having a surgery and his timing. He was very, very important. So I'm very grateful for his service. Thank you.
March 25, 2022
This urgent care location continues provide excellent service.
March 18, 2022
The nurse that handled my experience, (name removed), was very cordial and did a great job.
March 16, 2022
The whole staff was really friendly, helpful. I got in and no time. They took care of me. I got my prescription medication refill and I was in and out. I really enjoyed going to your office, to the facility. It was pretty rapid. Thank you very much.
March 14, 2022
Friendly service
March 10, 2022
Everyone was very nice & cared.
March 09, 2022
Very thorough and well oganized
March 09, 2022

I left the office and about 15 min later at 7 54 pm received a call if i can go back to get mt ankle wrapped. Admin advised we close at 8 pm sharp i said i cant make it back in 6 min she said oh okay sorry then
March 09, 2022
I had a very good experience for my first visit at this urgent care facility
March 03, 2022
Wait time was great. All personnel was friendly and courteous.
March 03, 2022
Very friendly atmosphere
March 03, 2022
He was very nice and understanding
February 25, 2022
Am satisfied my wife was seen timely, especially as she has Alzheimer's and gets upset very quickly in an unusual setting.
February 21, 2022
Excellent service.
February 21, 2022
Dr let me diagnose myself, Only checked One. Ear and walked out! Never experienced such bad service from a doctor!
February 21, 2022
Well, all the , all the staff. They are polite they are respectful, they are friendly. And also the doctor told, he's polite and he's like he has sympathy for the client. That's it. That's it, that's my comment.
February 07, 2022
Thanks for your services and I'm very happy with the services thanks so much for everything.
February 01, 2022
My experience with the office, staff was wonderful. They treated me very well. The provider, however, did not listen to me. Didn't care what I had to say. Just dismissed everything. And instead of listening to my symptoms. He gave me a covid test, which I already knew. I do not have covid. And then he sent me on my way. I went to a different doctor. I have strep throat, and that didn't get diagnosed at your facility by that provider. Thank you.
January 31, 2022
Honestly, I felt like this provider was in a hurry and even though he had me waiting for a while with my socks off, he didn't even look at my ankle or assessed it. He just sent me home with Ibuprofen. It was all speculation on his part and I wasn't really happy with my visit.
January 31, 2022
The staff was great so were the doctor
January 29, 2022
The medication provided to me was successful in helping me with my issue. I have ever created another issue that now I've had to go to my regular doctor. Get an ultrasound. And now I have to go and get blood-work to try to figure out what was the adverse reaction that I had placed on the medication provided?
January 29, 2022
Friendly staff and fast service.
January 19, 2022
I really enjoy the doctor. I really like him. I look forward to seeing him again.
January 19, 2022
The one glitch in an otherwise flawless experience: After my test I was told to go and wait in my car for the results... In about 15-20 minutes. No problem there. I got the call that I have indeed tested positive for Covid. I was then told that someone would bring out my paperwork in about five or 10 minutes... That did not happen. I waited for probably 20 minutes and had to get out of the car and go back in to the facility to get the paperwork. Since I was obviously not feeling very well this was not a wonderful thing to have to do. Otherwise I was quite pleased with the efficiency of the facility.
January 19, 2022
I only had a rapid Covid test but the nurse was great... friendly, skilled etc
January 19, 2022
I was seen quickly - office was very efficient and all who interfaces with me were very professional.
January 18, 2022
He had great bedside manners, and was extremely kind and understanding when administering a Covid test to my highly anxious son. He demonstrated stellar professionalism and kindness during a tumultuous time when our community is experiencing another surge.
January 17, 2022
This was Urgent Care. Glad to have one available to me . Quality care.
January 17, 2022
The ladies out front are very friendly and nurses and doctors are awesome. Took time to explain everything to me
January 14, 2022
Hi, that was my first visit to your facility, and I was very impressed by the staff. Everyone was very considerate and caring. I felt like, you know, I felt like they actually cared. And your office was really clean and neat, and I just was impressed at how clean everything was. So, I will definitely be back and have, you know, also told a bunch of people about you because I never knew where your facility was at. So, I did get it through Google. I Googled Urgent Care (INAUDIBLE). So, thank you very much, and I hope to see you guys soon. Thanks.
January 14, 2022
January 14, 2022
Staff was professional and courteous. Top level of care always
January 13, 2022
Best part was the provider did not feel comfortable performing the sutures due to the nature of the wound so had me go to the emergency room. Understanding limitations is important
January 12, 2022
This provider I don't even know so I don't know what you talking about.
January 12, 2022
The staff and the doctor are all nice
January 12, 2022
Everything was well, the thing was, if I came in for a covid check, and I went to Urgent Care. I didn't see a doctor. I just came in, for a check. I tested positive. So I left right away. That's all I did so anyway, as far as I know, everything was done the way it should have been. Thank you. Bye. Bye.
January 12, 2022
It took a lil time to be seen but thats because of the pandemic and protocols to follow as well as a lot of people sick and had to be seen. Being patient is the keyword. Thank you for all your staff do. Love PIH
January 07, 2022
I called to receive a follow up and I never received any information back on the things that I asked questions for. I think it would be a good way to improve if you ask... if you followed up with your patients.
January 05, 2022
Dr. Fernandez saw my husband and instead of sending him to ER, he just gave him some nose drops, sent him home, and my husband had Covid.
January 05, 2022
I did not see this person at all, who is he and what position does he hold at PIH!!? Im confused or you are!
January 04, 2022
Hi, it's really hard to judge because it was an urgent care visit. And with covid, it was very busy. So I appreciate that. They got me in within a good... good time waiting. So, thank you.
January 04, 2022
I like that they were patient with my mom who is 92 and that kept us informed on our wait time for Covid testing.
December 28, 2021
Dr. Fernandez was very courteous and very, very nice. And this is [name removed]. I was just getting checked for the COVID and he gave me medicine. And some cough medicine and Tylenol. And he was very, very good, and very respectful. And I was just there on Urgent Care in Emergency. So bye bye.
December 28, 2021
Joseph Fernandez was very courteous and patient with hearing my symptoms and explained very well how he was going to treat my symptoms.
December 26, 2021
Wait time 3 hours is way too long. Waited in my car. The woman called me to register when I got out of my car she had taken someone else and proceeded to tell me it took to long so she took someone else. I was extremely upset. I waited until someone else registered me! Went back to my car to wait. Finally someone called to take my vitals. Blood pressure 190/78. Poor system of management.
December 26, 2021
Very nice workers Doctor was quick to see me in room. Very clean waiting room
December 25, 2021
It was Christmas day. My name is [PHI removed], and I'm an RN, my daughter and I were both seen. We have almost respect for staff at urgent care. We would recommend it the doctor was awesome. The staff was awesome. Got us in and out, explained everything well highly recommended. It was a bad day for everyone Christmas not feeling well the day she does very well, and we thank everybody for that. Good results, Bad results. Thank you very much. Happy holidays and happy New Year. He was a great doctor, make sure you tell him that we think so. He's very kind passionate and caring and did a great job.
December 25, 2021
Wait was a little long....but that was understandable since there was no scheduled appointment. Once I was assigned to the room it was very quick and all the staff was very professional and courteous
December 23, 2021
I have no issue with this gentleman or any of your staff. I cut my finger fairly badly with a power tool and had 10 stitches in the tip of my finger. I was told to return in 5 days to have the stitches removed. I did as directed. The first time I returned to the clinic, it was extremely crowded. There was no social distancing in the seating. I returned later and waited 1 1/2 hours in a room semi-filled with people, some of whom seemed to think they had Covid. When I finally saw a physician's assistant, I was told the standard wait for removing stitches was 7 to 10 days and I should return Christmas morning or the day after. My issue is I'm not sick, but I am 75 and was required to wait in a room full of coughing, sick people for an extended period of time only to be told to come back later. Shouldn't one time to remove stitches be agreed upon? Couldn't I and the others have been texted in their cars or some other safer method been used rather than cramming us all in the same room? This crowded situation will only grow worse in the immediate future. Thanks for the opportunity to discuss this. Merry Christmas.
December 13, 2021
Hi, I prefer a regular doctor instead of like a nurse practitioner. Its I want a lots of experience, you know... Thank you.
December 13, 2021
We would not have known better. We were advised by one of PIH staff receiving appointment schedules that it would be wise for us to go to urgent care to have our lungs checked. Not knowing that and for public safety we had to have our PCR test as negative first before going to any PIH medical facilities. Both me and wife had prior covid vaccinations, booster and flu. Thank you to the PIH scheduler who helped us.
December 06, 2021
I was received graciously. I am very impressed with the staff who from the moment I entered Urgent Care (PIH)to went I left.
November 27, 2021
My experience at Urgent Care with Joseph Fernandez was really positive. I had positive covid results, and he just did a good job of guiding me through what the steps were that I needed to do, and put me at ease and answered all my questions. So it was a great experience. Thank you.
November 27, 2021
I truly felt I got better care here then the actual emergency room that I had been to earlier in the morning
November 26, 2021
I was seen in Urgent Cate and there was a long wait. I do not like the fact that appointments with my primary are tough to get.
November 26, 2021
Helpful to so estimate wait times. Front desk professional
November 25, 2021
He was clear. He was prompt. He was very knowledgeable and the medication that he prescribed is working beautifully. Thank you.
November 22, 2021
I was very surprised. I had a wonderful experience to the doctor was, absolutely perfect. And the staff was perfect and the wait was just perfect and everybody seemed to care. I was a very, very pleased. I hope that I did the same treatment next time I go. Thank you all very much specially the doctor.
November 18, 2021
Nurses are polite and gentle with my son who is on the spectrum. Overall great experience!
November 16, 2021
From walking in door until receiving prescription the whole process took only 20 minutes. Staff were very professional. My urine analysis took only a few minutes to diagnose UTI.
November 16, 2021
Very fast check in and prompt attention.
November 16, 2021
In taking this survey, just one time. Say what the 1, 2, 3, 4 mean, and then say, for the next 7 questions. It'll be the same every time. This will save a lot of time, but no, it was a great experience. I'm glad I went there. Bye.
November 15, 2021
The office staff was very friendly and took me right in. The Doctor was friendly,professional, and was very attentive. My experience was terrific!!
November 11, 2021
Yes, he was very clean, very accurate. Yeah, I guess I would go with him again. I really liked him. He's really nice guy. Thank you.
November 08, 2021
I didn't have to wait very long. I was helped in a timely matter and staff was very kind.
November 08, 2021
Okay, the assistant, the doctor was also very good (unreadable) and the time that I need.
November 05, 2021
Quick, efficient, friendly response on a Friday when I accidentally hurt my right. X-rays were taken and no break or fracture were apparent. I was released and went on to enjoy my scheduled dinner that evening.
October 29, 2021
I would definitely recommend it, very kind and patient. I liked it!
October 28, 2021
Everything was great when I went to go see the doctor. What I don't like is the survey that keeps calling me back until I finish it. Not only that, it says it's only a few questions and the questions are extensive.
October 28, 2021
I hear nothing but problems about Urgent Care facilities and I even tell Medicare and I have never had a problem at PIH and I tell people all the time you guys are the best
October 22, 2021
Never been there before...but, if I needed too...I'll go there!!
October 06, 2021
I appreciate that he referred me to a specialist and I was able to see the specialist in a timely manner.
October 06, 2021
Thank you for the service and the care that you provided for me.
October 06, 2021
The urgent care, I visited 2 times the last 3 weeks. They are fast, they treat us with respect, and in timely manner and I don't wanna go more often, but I go when I have to. Thank you.
October 05, 2021
He basically guessed by telling me 5 different possibilities it could of been. UTI or maybe sinuses or maybe a cold or better yet maybe back spasms. He proscribed me 5-6 medications. Didn't test me for covid or check my kidneys
October 05, 2021
It was a pleasant visit thank you
