Iris VillanuevaWhat a joke.! 8 hour wait time.On top of that got a 10,000 bill for what? To be seen in a hall way, just so they can say go see your primary care doctor!Laura THorrible department. Once you are admitted they have some amazing doctors but the Emergency department is where they fail. Insanely long wait times and uncaring staff. Sutter is so fast , in and out. Please go there if you need to go to an emergency room.craig PyneHello, Went to the emergency room. I waited for over 6 hours and doctors didn’t treat me. I have Crohn’s disease . throwing up, bleedint etc and was dehydrated. Doctor said I was ok. I went to another er and they said I was dehydrated and my sodium was low. terrible place, go to another er.The omnipotentDO NOT GO HERE!!! If I could give 0 stars I would. As someone who suffers from chronic illness i have been to several hospitals in the area and this by far has been the worst. Facility is filthy, wait times are horrible, and staff is lacking in every area. I spent 12 hours in the er all to be told to follow up with my primary. PLEASE save yourself and DO NOT GO TO THIS FACILITYkhowajaaman sediqiThis hospital is the worst hospital I have ever seen in my life. I am waiting to seen by a doctor for more then 4 hours. When I ask the nurse that how long will it take. She told me they are busy and if you can’t wait so you are welcome to leave.Arpit PatelHorrible ER place. Checked in at 9:30pm and it’s 5am and still waiting. Staff having cold response and no one cares about patients. Do not come here if you have true emergency. Will take forever. I saw reviews like this but thought it won’t happen to me. It happened and learned my lesson. No UC Davis ER in future.JoyceDianne Carson⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️✅ ER RecommendedMy experience today – 10/17/19 went VERY WELL at UC Davis emergency room. I came to this hospital due to my Pain of sinus infection. I arrived at 7:45am & finished being seen by nurses/doctor by 9:25am. Thank you UC Davis Emergency Room staff for your quick service.Myesha AlamriSally the nurse in Neurology Clinic is the most cruel and unprofessional medical personnel I have ever came in contact with.. She makes the whole team look bad I am shocked she has a job. My son could of died due to her negligence and incompetence.Kenzzo M.Stay clear of this ER. I’ve been waiting for 10hours and have yet to be seen. The workers are lazy and extremely rude. If you want to live and have a true emergency, spare your precious life and go elsewhere, Sutter.N SharmaIt is a nightmare! Do not come unless you are on your death bed. Better to call 911 so that way you are at least inside. From starting at the check in, securit to triage all staffs are so unhappy. They make good money but no one has the human touch. We have better prisons than hospitals here in the US. Sad, how much money health care cost but truly no sympathy for people who need immediate care and attention. I waited 3 days to bring my mom until I really needed to only because of fear of this waiting. Such a disappointment. Bathrooms are nasty!!! You see slow moving staff cleaning (which really isn’t cleaning).Patricia Dove⭐️⭐️⭐️came. here cause i wrecked my. scooter and was brought here. had smooth service but went home. and the fire department had lost my scooter. i am back at UC. now for 4 days and can’t leave no place to go. i have no wheelchair. and can’t walk a d they still trying to fond me a place to live but most of these places ate terrible. not licenses. znd you pay the people house note and they think you are taken care of tthe last 3 i was at abused me got eaten by bed bugs. the house at 3513 36th ave is full of them and 12-16 people living like pack rats no electricity. some one should check it out these house should be shut down tbese people are better homeless than being abused by these scammers and people who fraud the governmentDaniel ParkerUnless you’re bleeding out or have your guts hanging out, prepare to wait for 3+ hours to be seen by a doctor. Then they ask you the same thing that is already in your chart when you checked into the ER. Then wait another 2-3 hours to get a room because you are actually messed up and needed surgery.Rocio ZambranaWorst hospital ever!! If I could rate it -0 stars I would. Got here at midnight and it’s 7am and I still in the waiting room. I’m in so much pain. First and last time I’m coming. I don’t recommend this place AT ALL. TERRIBLEMichael SousaWas told by my personal care doctor to get to UCD emergency immediately. Been in the waiting room for 4 hours.Houman GThe worst medical center i have ever seen. Last night i had to come emergency room for my Doughter severe foot pain, the registration and initial screening took 10 minuets and Then I waited almost 6 hours without any progress , finally i gave up and decided to go to another emergency room. I would never recommend this center. The stuff weren’t nice and responsible and just told me we are busy tonight but the line didn’t move and all patients just sleep over night in waiting area and no one visited any doctors!Suzette BeckHORRIBLE! I brought my friend there this last Saturday, at 10 am. After initial triage, we sat in the waiting room, FOR 10 HOURS. It was not even that busy. My friend was in severe pain. After 2 hours, we asked about the blood work and nausea med they said they would be doing, and then waited longer. After 5 hours, they finally did blood work. Then nothing. They don’t put you in a private area, you stay in the waiting room. You have to go out to the main lobby anytime to check with a nurse and then be re-screened by security. The worst part was after 10 hours, they told her maybe a pulled muscle. The Doctor did finally see her, about hour 9. Today, 4 days later, they called to say they had just did one of the tests, that should have been done on Saturday, and told her to go to her Doctor ASAP. WHAT A JOKE! And my friend has insurance! Don’t go here! PS – Due to health issues I’ve spent a lot of time in ER’s. I’ve never seen such a horrible system. Kaiser and Sutter were way better equipped, staffed and efficient. The Administrators need to fix that!Amanda DiversDO NOT GO HERE! Took my 5 year old here with 106.4 temperature; could not bring his fever down with medicine at home. Was checked in by one of their RN’s, she put a bracelet on his wrist and told us to wait in the waiting area. After 3 HOURS I asked why my son had not been seen at all yet, I was told the RN who “checked us in” had not finished his check in and we were not even in their system to be seen! We walked out so I could take him elsewhere. Absolutely horrible. Will never go here again.Mike Jones⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️✅ ER RecommendedMy brother was in this Emergency Department and he received great service from the medical professionals. Even though he waited a couple of hours in the waiting room before being seen, the medical staff still monitored my brother by taking hourly vitals. Once in, he received great care from all medical staff and was discharged hours later. I see a lot of reviewers complain about long wait times in the Emergency Department waiting room. I can offer plenty of reasons why the wait is so long: 1) Not enough rooms for every patient that comes through the Emergency Department. 2) They take in patients who are the sickest with the exception of trauma patients. 3) People are using the Emergency Department as their primary care providers. 4) People need to be educated on how to use the Emergency Department. If you are visiting the Emergency Department because of a cough, headache, or dental pain then your wait will be even longer as you can be treated for those complaints at your primarycare provider or the dentist. 5) If the Emergency Department is not discharging or admitting patients, the waiting room will be impacted. 6) YOU ARE NOT THE ONLY PATIENT BEING SEEN by the Emergency Department. The patients I saw in the hallways were being treated. I saw nurses and doctors attending to the patients. So I assume they were utilizing the hallways to get more patients in faster. UC Davis Medical Center always had security officers around the clock. People are being patted down and going through a metal detector is something I am uncomfortable of, but I can see why since this hospital is located in South Sacramento and near Oak Park. I’m assuming the hospital had some type of bad experience with people bringing unwanted items in. In the end, this is a really good hospital and an amazing Emergency Department.Stephanie TorresI wish it was possible to give less then 1 star. Don’t go there unless your literally dying. We were there for 12 hours. Not only did they not listen to me before leaving the room but they never got the problem fixed not even pain management. They had me sign papers when I was in so much pain I couldn’t read between the lines. Never vocally mentioned the hospitals they got their info from. Never mentioned which medical tests they would be taking on me and then lied and said they would give me referrals but never did. Talk about medical malpractice. Won’t be taking my family back to that ER ever again. Not unless were dying anyways.Dog Dog 007Read the other reviews, everyone says the same thing. The wait is absolutely horrible. To be rushed in by ambulance only to be told there was no beds in hallways, and to sit on the ground outside the ER to wait was a joke. I went in with a blood pressure of 220/128 and swollen hard lymph nodes which later another ER found to be due to sepsis. UCD is horrible for the inhumane treatment of patients.Monique ReneeThe security guards and register staff here are making fun of the patients who ask them questions and wait times… I couldnt get comfortable yet alone rest while they cackled.Alejandra GuerreroWorst emergency room I’ve ever been to!! Went in at 9:30pm and it’s already 2:45am and haven’t been seen yet!! All the other patient’s are also upset about the same thing. the wait time there is RIDICULOUS!!!Nancy ChapmanNot worth a Star: ABSOLUTELY DON’T GO THERE if you wish to be seen the same day! I recently went through a 20-hour stay. I am totally against the protocol used by the triage nurses! It seems to be cast in stone, with your only chance to be soon sooner rather than later is what your current vitals are. Shameful!Annette ProvostIf I could rate it zero I would! If you need care DO NOT GO HERE!! Go anywhere but here! My Dad was sent by ambulance from UCD Family Practice and he laid in hallway for 6 hours before he was even acknowledged at all! He never received ANY help was was released after 10 hours in an Uber! Are you kidding me? He was sent there for an IV of fluids and xray of shoulder that was black! Black down his front and back! Nothing. Nothing. He actually came out worse than he went in! What kind of care is this?Anna CGross waiting room, used bandages and cotton swabs everywhere. Staff is laughing and giggling obnoxiously while people wait for help.Nasir AhmadThe worst medical center i have ever seen. If you go morning to the Emergency room, you will see the doctor probably at night, I don’t advise you to go to UC Davis Emergency room.Stevie Nrici⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️✅ ER RecommendedThey saved my boyfriend’s life. Dr Dahlin is awesome!!!! NICU DEPT IS THE BEST FOR EVERYTHING!James Daugherty⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️The wait is so long. But once you get in where you can be seen, the staff are so helpful. I been waiting 4 hours right now, but I’m not discouraged, I know they will get to me in a time that is best for all around me.April DearbaughI have been here over 6 hours and still have not been seen by a doctor. There are only 6 other people in the waiting area, yet they still can’t give me even an estimate on when I may be seen. Others say they’ve been here 12 hours. Its filthy, loud and cold in the waiting room. They won’t even give me a blanket or anything for the pain. Go anywhere else.Kirby WardI was there after a suicide attempt in late May. I was left ALONE in a bed in A FREAKING HALLWAY for hours, whilst the staff at the nurses station (I’m assuming it was the nurses station) laughed at my memory loss and named me ” the weird guy”. Seriously, leaving a suicidal patient alone in a hallway, who already feels alone and isolated, is NOT HELPING. If you need help, go somewhere else. I’m still angry and hurt that i was treated with such careless disregard. I won’t ever go there, even if it is the only facility; I will go anywhere but there.Yolanda RaumWaited 8 hours. Ridiculous waste of time. The chairs in the waiting room are designed to be so uncomfotable, you can’t rest. Whats the problem that we have to wait why cant we get a call or register and get a pager instead of sitting here for 10 hours. What if something was really wrong there not even checking on me. My thumb is infected and now i think it is in two other fingers and no one has seen me yet is there only one doctor working why is it taking this long to see a doctorKen CastleberryWhen you have an emergency your don’t have time for wrong numbers like this one it’s definitely not the correct number for Uc Davis emergencyNawed ShThe worst medical Center that I have ever seen, I have been waiting for 7 hours, nobody care about you. Before this Center was great, but now the worstNamita GoelHorrible experience. Long wait time.Phillip MerrittDo not come to place! We have been here over 12 hours.Deven DFamily member sent here for an emergency ultra sound after doctors appointment. The wait here is a joke. Watched a man have an accident in the waiting area nurses gave him some wash cloths(Wich he just put in his pants and sat back down). Nurses never came back to clean up the mess. They just it on the brown waiting room chairs. Someone else is now laying down on those same chairs. Stay away. Very unsanitary.Vanessa AponteHas to be the absolute worst ER hospital I’ve been too . And with my dads condition, I’ve been to a lot. Wait times are extremely long. Everyone there looks so over their job. They have no compassion or empathy for the ill.Nicole SantanaDont come here unless you want to wait forever! This is supposed to be an emergency room but by the time they get to you it’s not even an emergency anymore. I’ve been waiting for 5 hours for a simple xray result on a sprained thumb that they looked at 2 hours ago. I am beyond unsatisfied. This happenes EVERY time I come here.Heather FordI am a nurse and feel this place is unsafe. The care given was grossly inappropriate and in spite of their feelings to the contrary-nothing will ever make it acceptable. The disrespectful way staff spoke to me (like one speaks to a mentally handicapped child) is also highly unprofessional. The long and short of the effect of what happened is the experience causes PTSD and I already have it. This has affected my ability to trust providers now. I can forgive but forgetting isn’t so simple.emir whittakerSo I have a dental infection right… I got in the ER @ 5am to beat the rush, I get there, there are 8 security guards standing around chatting… so I’m thinking heavy security presence for what? There’s only 4 people in the lobby. After I check-in they made me empty my pockets to get wanded down… I waited in the lobby for 5 minutes,went back to the back, made me get into a gown and lay in a hospital bed??? For a minor tooth infection? Layed there for 2 hours.. doctor finally came… said I DIDNT NEED antibiotics!!! Uh lady, there’s an abcess growing in my mouth.. I say all that to say.. it was a big waste of time and I don’t feel I should be bill for 3hrs or pretty much nothing.. and left with NO ANTIBIOTICS!!!Blake TinsleyBrought in by ambulance yet to be help. Placed in a hallway and don’t know who my nurse is or if I even have a doctor. It’s been hell. They are going to charge me a ton and they have done nothing. Stay away from UC Davis ER it’s almost easier to just let yourself go into the white light than let these Phoenix Grads (sorry for insulting Phoenix students your not as bad as them) play doctor. Runnnnn far far far awayDon PollardWill never go there again…..after 4 hours of waiting….got put in a hallway on a bed. Kept telling everyone I needed to take my blood pressure meds and was told no….needed a snack also….my condition was getting worse….I finally asked where bathroom was and walked out. Took my meds and headed home….got better as I got home. Went there because of blurred/double vision. Blood sugar was good…EKG was good…was waiting on lab results…. couldn’t get any answer. Kept telling them I needed my meds.never go thetrsia chaTheir system is stupid. People wait hours to a whole day without being seen in the emergency. Why call the center emergency when they move like snails.Lynn FortuneI am here now in the emergency room, it’s going on 4 hours of waiting. Spoke with 3 other woman. One has been here since 11:30 am, 12:00 noon and 2:00pm. I guess I am lucky, I’ve been here since 3:00, only 4 hours. And it’s not that busy. Their way of prioritizing and communicating is very insufficient, frustrating and just plain ridiculous!!!!Jacob FinegoldBy far the worst ER of the Sacramento area. Stay away. If your not in critical condition then go elsewhere. I highly recommend Sutter Health ER over UC Davis any day. Excellent service @ Sutter. Oh ya when I did go to the ER @ Davis my wait was over 12 hours. And they did absolutely nothing about my pain. Ended up getting services @ Sutter Roseville which again was excellent and I got right in. I would never go to U.C Davis. Ever again. They were not only horrible but the customer service was horrible as well.Marco PerezMy last 3 visits have resulted in over 30 hours of waiting just to be seen. An average of over 10 hours per visit. If you have a real emergency I suggest you do not come here.Shawn CaseyWorst er visit ever!!!! Nurses are standing around and doing nothing. I’m waiting for a Dr to see me. I’ve been here for 5+ hrs.!!!!!Rahmatullah ShirzadWasting of time to come to UCdavis emergency, an emergency patient should wait for about 2 hours or more. I’m in pain but none asking my condition.poor serviceJohnathon HerBeen here in the waiting room for the e.r. for over 3 hours and still haven’t been seen. Was at Kaiser last week and was in and out within 1 hour. Dont come here unless you wanna have a longer wait than a DMV line.japena75This has to be the worst waiting room ever! My wife has been sitting here for over 5 hours with a severe migraine while kids with sprained ankles have been treated and released! Cmon UC Davis, get your priorities straight! And now I’ll add that an 80 year old lady got pissed for waiting over 2 1/2 hrs got up and left with all her family. Man! If that lady has a heart attack while walking out of the ER she or family will have a helluva suit against UC Davis!!!
