The absolute worst hospital network I’ve ever had the misfortune of being a patient at. I repeatedly saw my former PCP at CHA dozens of times over the course of almost two years trying to get diagnosed for a difficukt-to-diagnose-autoimmune disorder (or referred by him to any and all specialists he could possibly send me to). After repeatedly responding to my desperate attempts to get some testing and treatment with statements like “it’s all in your head” or replacing my “medical lab work requests” with drug screenings and pregnancy tests (without telling me!) I found out, almost two years after first seeing this man, that I had actually BEEN diagnosed with this *fatal, chronic, life-threatening disease 2 years prior by one of the first specialists I’d ever seen. This specialist made note of this diagnosis in my chart, requested further testing to determine extent of damage, and advised my PCP to refer me to specialist within my network that he would recommend to help treat me. By repeatedly denying I had anything wrong with me (AND FAILING TO MENTION THIS LIFE-THREATENING DISEASE I HAD BEEN DIAGNOSED WITH) I wasted two years trying... and failing... to get even th simplest of testing done. I also MISSED the 1.5-ish year “early preventative treatment period”, during which I COULD have possibly stalled the and “frozen” the onset of my disease, and am now permanently stuck with this death warrant.

This place is all about the$$$$$$$$$. Did you ever wonder who was actually doing your surgery? Was it the surgeon or the resident? Who is the anesthesiologist the one you met or someone's first surgery? Unless you want to losee members of your family or yourself THEN STAY AWAY!!!!!!!!!!!

Yes, Dr. Shalnov and his nurses are rude. But that wouldn't warrant a 1 star from me. The 1-star is because he, and they, are *extremely* rude-like don't treat you a... Read more
