Ratings for STANFORD HOSPITAL AND CLINICS
Overcrowded and outrageously expensive. Very difficult to get an itemized bill, you'll just get an invoice with no breakdown. I was placed out in a hall after surgery and then a shared room with about 8 people in it. I left the same days as my 6 hour long spine surgery rather spend the two scheduled days there because I couldn't take the noise and discomfort. Horrible! I will say the nurses here do their very best to make due and were always kind and professional.
I was visiting Palo Alto. I was having a heart event and we called 911. The EMTs were thorough and worried. They took an EKG and it was abnormal. When the doctor finally gotten around to see me she said in a stern voice "why did you come here?" I requested another doctor as I have the right to. It didn't happen. More stress on my already stressed heart. I made it out of there alive but the doctor didn't see me again. She didn't order any tests. When I told my specialist she said that Stanford ER has gone downhill and don't go there - go anywhere else because your life depends on it. She worked for Stanford Speciality Clinic
