This facility is the most disgusting, filthy facility ever. I had surgery and of course, got a life threatening infection from their OR. I'm not alone. Research UC Davis and you'll see how high their infection rate is, along with having a much higher rate of re-admission because of post-surgical infections and complications. Ask around, just about everyone knows someone who got an infection from UC Davis. It took 2 days to get someone to clean feces off the toilet from another patient on the cardio-thoracic floor where I was "recovering" from surgery, or succumbing to infection...whichever way you want to look at it. Needless to say...you risk your life to get treatment at the UC Davis medical center. I have filed complaints with no response from UC Davis. Had surgery, pathology lost my specimen and then damaged it when they were supposed to save it for future tests. Blood on the walls and floors, poop on the toilet and floor of the bathroom, nurses that don't wash their hands, medication administered incorrectly so it burned and damaged my throat, nurses "forgetting" to show up to give pain medication after they opened my chest up, tried to feed me mushrooms in a meal when they were told a million times I was allergic to them, no curtain for room privacy even though we asked a total of 7 times over two different admissions totaling 14 days, and so many more horrible things! I feel lucky I survived my encounter with UC Davis and their "comprehensive" cancer facility. Do the research and get your care elsewhere. Don't let UC Davis profit at the cost of your health and well being. As for me, I'm off to Mayo Clinic in Arizona to have them fix the butcher job I got from Dr. Elizabeth David of the "comprehensive" Cancer Center. I wish I would have known better before I let them try to kill/treat me.
I had tumors removed from my spine at UCSF. I was then sent to UCDavis for rehabilitation. There physical therapists were wonderful, so kind,patient and helpful. The nurses on the other hand I were terrible. I had a very BIG, PAINFUL surgery and some days I waited hours for pain meds because the nurses did not answer my calls. I had wonderful care at UCSF and they sent all the info to UCDavis about what I should have and what I should be taking. It took the doctors and nurses 3 days to get it straight and control my pain. At one point I was crying from being in so much pain and a nurse actually stood in front of me arguing with me while I kept asking him to stop as I was still crying. If you need physical therapy and rehabilitation this is the place but if your in a lot of pain don't expect to get help.
You will wait a long time in the emergency room if you come in on a weekend or holiday (when most people seem to frequent ER's). That's the same with ANY county hospital. With that being said, the nurses and doctors at UCDMC are some of the brightest and most caring medical professionals in the world. The fact remains is that this hospital provides some of the best care in California. Trust me, if your life is on the line you want to be rushed here. They've saved my fathers life, and have taken care of me and my family for years. I have nothing but good things to say about this place. Sorry about the dirty bathrooms and tv volume and all the other crazy unimportant things I'm reading in these reviews, not one review about the quality or caliber of service they received on a real medical issue.
Your co payment may not cover your visit. Per the billing department your co-payment doesn't cover procedure done during you're office visit so you can count on having additional charges. Only place I've ever seen like this. Basically if the Dr. does anything but talk to you they'll charge you for an additional procedure.
Such a bad hospital i ever been someone should wait at the emergency wating room for hours. I am waiting to see a doctor from 1:00pm up to now....it is almost 2:00 am but still there is No doctor to see me.... no customer service...
