Kristopher Hamwi⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️✅ ER RecommendedI have to give a big thank you to the imaging department at Tahoe Forest Hospital. While on vacation I was injured and needed outpatient imaging. TFH was the only facility in the area with the required imaging modality. Because it was a weekend and I was out of town, the process of obtaining prior authorization from my insurance and ultimately scheduling the imaging study was somewhat difficult. The staff of the imaging department, specifically Sami, Cassie and Jonas were outstanding. They were helpful, caring and provided excellent patient care. I am a physician myself and I know that the service they provided was above and beyond. From what I experienced though my encounter as a patient, I highly recommend Tahoe Forest Hospital.Emily Taylor⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️✅ ER RecommendedThe most gentle and caring people work here. Always in a good mood. Always accommodating. The employees here have really relieved some of the stresses of my pregnancy. They’re the best!Josiah Roldan⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️✅ ER RecommendedI was admitted on Xmas day for pneumonia and I wanted to share how impressed I was with the staff in the ER and the ICU! I work in healthcare and tend to be more critical, and the service I received was nothing short of excellence. The ICU staff were kind and their passion for caring for people showed through out my stay. Thank you THF!KristinA Borwick⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️✅ ER RecommendedPlease understand I’m only leaving this review specifically for the radiology department. The tech in the radiology department made my experience so smooth. The MRI was a terrifying anxiety fueled thought but with my wonderful Tech it went smooth and even enjoyable. She is amazing!Garry Parton⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️✅ ER RecommendedStaff was excellent and provided prompt expert care.Nancy McLachlan⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️✅ ER RecommendedI’ve just returned from our wonderful local hospital, Tahoe Forest. I needed some emergency care and I was treated almost immediately. I want to thank everyone who helped me with my issue and made me feel safe and comfortable. Special thanks to the ever wonder nurse Joe. You couldn’t ask for a more attentive and competent nurse. Also thank you to Dr. Young. She calmed my concerns and answered all my questions. I love our town and I love Tahoe Forest Hospital.Patrick Dolohery⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️✅ ER RecommendedOn a recent visit to the E.R. I presented with chest pain and shortness of breath and being a heart patient, I was always told by my primary care physician to get evaluated no matter what. From the moment I walked in I was attended to right away by I believe Alexa, the registration clerk who immediately called the nurse who came out with a wheelchair. I was taken to a room right away and had several people take care of me. The nurses were awesome and so caring and attentive! Macky, Jess, Whitney (I believe that was her name) they began the work up right away with an EKG, started an IV, drew labs. Doctor Laine, was the ER physicsian on duty. They were able to have my records from Renown sent over. I informed them of my heart conditions including an ascending aortic aneurysm which caused concern being my blood pressure was elevated. He immediately ordered a CT scan with contrast which I mentioned I was allergic to and ordered meds to counteract it. Wendy, the CT tech was awesome as well and very reassuring and explained the whole procedure. They kept me warm with warm blankets as I was cold. I was given nitroglycerin tablets as the ones I had taken earlier the E.R. doc explained only have a 2 or 3 month shelf life and in addition to aspirin I was given morphine for chest pain. I was then seen by Doctor Sammels the hospitalist who told me so far, so good but wanted to keep me overnight and redo my labs in the morning. I finally got to a room in med/drug around 1 a.m. and was immediately greeted by the RN house supervisor but don’t recall his name but he was awesome! Valerie, my night nurse introduced herself and did my assement and brought me my pain meds. She was awesome as well as my day nurse Mike and the RN house supervisor Fernando, who watched the football game with me. I was attended to by Doctor Katy Schousen, the hospitalist. She was amazing as could be and reassured me my heart was good but a little weak still and my ascending aortic aneurysm was stable. I mentioned to the ER staff that I had a recent syncopal episode and that I had hit my head and chest hard when I fell to the ground. She attributed it to chest wall pain or chostocondritis(chest wall/cartilage inflammation). This by far was a great stay even though I don’t like hospital stays but better to be safe than sorry. All the while, Valerie and Mike along with the Jayson, the day shift nursing assistant, kept checking on me and brought me a sandwich to eat rather Valerie did along with some applesauce. As well as the ER staff brought me juice. They all kept me comfortable and reassured. This place rocks. You are all amazing and if there were more than five stars, I’d give them. Keep up the great work!kapishilization b⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️✅ ER RecommendedI have never been to a more caring and kind hearted hospital the staff was above and beyond and they take really good care of you… in another words your welcomed by a family instead of professional nice peopleSteve B⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️✅ ER RecommendedWho gets excited about going to the Hospital Lab to have blood drawn? But the staff from the minute you walk in to reception to the techs drawing blood, were all very friendly and warm. I found their attitude helped reduce my stress about getting tests done. The techs also were competent and reassured me that results would be done quickly.Anne Lammers⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️✅ ER RecommendedI am someone who only writes a review when something is exceptional. One week ago I was in need of emergency gallbladder removal surgery. I was in excruciating pain. I made my way first to Incline Village Community Hospital in Incline Village, NV where I call home. Once my pain was managed and it was determined that surgery was needed as soon as possible that day, they transported me to Tahoe Forest Hospital in Truckee, CA, part of the same health system. It truly was an exceptional experience from the beginning. Not having any relatives in the area, the need for emergency surgery could be a scary experience for some. This was not the case here. I’m so blessed to have my friend-family in the area, as well as my extended-Tahoe-community-family. Those in this health system are definitely part of that. Each individual took such sweet, skilled care of me as if I were their own family member. Everyone from triage to my paramedics, nurses and doctors (Dr. Laning Andrews, Dr. Ricki Alpert, Dr. David Kitts, and Dr. Ellen Cooper) were all amazing. I wish I could name everyone. I certainly remember them all. This is my sincere thanks to all of you! I feel amazing, and as if I have a new lease on life. I feel so connected to this area, and you are all such a big reason for that. Please keep doing what you do so well. And for anyone needing health care in the area, these are the best places to go.Frank T⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️✅ ER RecommendedGreat hospital specializing in orthopedics.Brian McNulty⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️✅ ER RecommendedMy wife and I were on a family vacation in the Tahoe Donner area when suddenly she became ill. This was on Saint Patrick’s Day, a Sunday. I am a physician and suspected she might have appendicitis and was concerned about bringing her to TFH because I thought a small hospital in the mountains might not have the appropriate physicians, lab, Xray,etc. Boy were we surprised! Despite being extremely busy due to many orthopedic and other emergencies filling the ER, my wife was seen and evaluated within a few hours. Dr. Claire Johnson was very kind and ordered the necessary labs and a CT scan which confirmed appendicitis. Dr. Crystine Lee was the surgeon on call who came and offered antibiotic therapy or appendectomy. Since we had driven from Florida, my wife opted for appendectomy which was performed that night. I couldn’t believe we got a Stanford and UCSF trained surgeon who did a fellowship in laparoscopic surgery to do the surgery on a Sunday night, a holiday at that. With Dr. Lee’s exceptional training, we felt it best to have her do the surgery rather than taking the chance of the antibiotics not working or having a flare up while we were driving back to Florida. The anesthesiologist, Dr. Bany, did a thorough pre-op evaluation and we felt very comfortable with her doing the anesthesia. Not knowing much about the hospital, I decided to spend the night in my wife’s room just to keep an eye on things. Turns out that was unnecessary because her night nurse, Rob, was fantastic. He was so attentive and made us feel completely safe! From my 37 years of experience as a physician, I know that nurses are the front line of patient care in a hospital setting. A good nurse can save a patient from disaster. My wife went home the next day and the day nurse, Brad, also seemed highly talented and made us feel at ease. From start to finish, Tahoe Forest Hospital provided exceptional care to my wife. Appendicitis is still a life threatening condition, especially if there is a delay in diagnosis or treatment. We will be forever grateful to Tahoe Forest Hospital and it’s excellent staff. Brian McNulty, M.D.Orlando Resendiz⭐️⛔️ ER Not RecommendedDid not even do want I asked for just said I was fine an gave me over the counter medicine . These people don’t care about you unless you dying or rich I swear . Next time just do me an ex ray like I asked .Tania Nelson-Chrystal⭐️⛔️ ER Not RecommendedMy husband fell and caused a large bruise on his leg which grew significantly in size over the next 30min. We were concerned about an expanding hematoma. He was seen by Dr. Mozen. He was the rudest ER doctor I have ever meet. He rolled his eyes 8 times while talking, making us feel inferior because our concern for the injury was unfounded. I’m sorry, Dr. Mozen, if we are concerned and felt the need to get immediate attention. We have never had an injury like that and we were very genuinely worried. You could have given us a more caring and compassionate attitude. All the nurses were amazing. I’m so sorry you have to work with that doctor.Jackie Luckey⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️✅ ER RecommendedLove the size of this hospital! Easy to navigate and the people are wonderful! They must like working there.Patti Kimmey⭐️⛔️ ER Not RecommendedWe are 35 year locals in Tahoe City. My wife needed 3 tests done as prescribed by her physician. We went to Tahoe Forest Hospital Lab …wanting to use our local provider. We were shocked when the bill came in at $470. We called Lab Corp in Reno. Their price would have been $261. Then we called Cash Clinical in Reno. Their price would have been $116. We called the lab and spoke to the man who said he runs the lab (Vern). I told him the above info. He laughed. Well, we will never use Tahoe Forest Lab again!! We gave them 1 star because the form would not allow 0 stars.August Beck⭐️⛔️ ER Not RecommendedMy mother died, with a small (under 500) balance due here. I told them, and explained it would take a little bit to pay due to the amazingly slow pace that probate court goes at, since the estate was the debtor. They said they understood, and then later sent the debt to collections. Do not trust this hospital as far as billing goes.Peggy McKleroy⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️✅ ER RecommendedThey saved my life! An an excellent team came together quickly and efficiently. First in the ER and later in ICU. Super caring staff from nurses to lab folks to doctors. Thank you. I’ll be forever grateful.Roberta McNamara⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️✅ ER RecommendedHaving been in the hospital for child birth, parental conditions and another surgery, I have to give Tahoe Forest a definite five star rating. From the kindness of the nurses to the absolutely delicious hospital food to the cleanliness of the entire facility I was absolutely astounded. If I should ever need orthopedic surgery again, Tahoe Forest is where I will go!Erin Bennett⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️I had emergency gall bladder surgery that was very unexpected. I arrived at the ER and my ultrasound was misread but they got the correct information once I had a CT scan. Once admitted, I received excellent care, the procedure went smoothly and everyone was professional and very nice – great nurses!High Sierra Taxi⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️✅ ER RecommendedReally nice staff. The hospital seems very clean and professional.Linda Cannon⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️✅ ER RecommendedAfter a sledding mishap I had to call 911 for my son. They brought him to Tahoe Forest Hospital- They were awesome! The doctor and nursing staff were so nice. They even gave me a disc with the hospital report and xrays to give to my local dr. They had us out after a few hours. Everyone was so great to a very freaked out mom.Heidi Pesterfield⭐️⭐️⭐️Great care in Truckee. But expensive. I now use less expensive lab and X-ray services in Reno and Carson to avoid massive out-of-pocket costs due to gaps in what TFH charges and what my insurance will pay. PT services in Incline a bit of a circus (front desk issues).Jean Desmarais⭐️⛔️ ER Not RecommendedUnless you are going to die in the next hour drive to Reno.Shawn Williams⭐️⛔️ ER Not RecommendedMake sure you keep your records and payments receipts if you go here. After paying my bill for an ER visit, I held onto my payment confirmation for over a year before shredding it. 2 years after my ER visit, with no contact with Tahoe Forest Hospital since my final payment, I get a call from a collection agency for the full amount of the initial bill. I requested an itemized account statement since I no longer have my verification of payment. Not only did they never send me the requested statements, the collection agency charged me $150 in interest while I waited. In the end I had to pay the bill all over again plus fees and interest to minimize the damage they did to my credit. I don’t know if this was done out of incompetence or with malicious intent, but the moral of the story is hold onto proof of payment for at least 5 years to them double dipping into your wallet.Egbert Algra⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️✅ ER RecommendedSo professiona and friendly. Great ortho deptHal Harrison⭐️⛔️ ER Not RecommendedER is awesome, finally! The Multi-Speciality Clinic is a dog and pony show, totally unprofessional, NO leadership or responsibility from anybody.Mary Davey⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️✅ ER RecommendedGreat Hospital all aroundPAT CAMPBELL⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️✅ ER RecommendedExcellent care!Lee Ho Young⭐️⭐️⭐️(Translated by Google) Saba, but I have never seen a medical staff okay, there have been many problems, (Original) 사바사지만, 의료진이 괜찮다고 생각해본적은 한번도없고, 오진도 몇번 겪어서 문제가 많았던 병원
