What Our Patients Say

5-star Yelp review

8/12/2019

I recently had 2 procedures in 2 weeks with the Whittier radiology appointment and WOW. Can you believe they had the nerve to explain the procedures beforehand and make sure I was comfortable the whole time; who does that? An amazing department that's who.

Jokes aside, they were nothing short of amazing. They ensured I was comfortable the whole time and that I understood everything that was going to be done. From My who answered my call on a Saturday when I initially messed up my prep work, I called at noon on a Saturday and she was with a patient and said she would have to call me back. I honestly did not expect a call back (from experiences with other facilities) but to my surprise a few hours later when I received a call from her I was blown away. She was also the person that explained my first Procedure to me and Young was on deck to work with me as well. They were both nice and thoughtful: making sure I was comfortable and helping me keep modesty. The dr was really nice and patient as well throughout the uncomfortable X-ray.

The second week I got to work with Jessica and Young. Again, they were amazing and incredibly helpful every step of the way. They explained the procedure, talked to me as a person to keep the mood calm and relaxed, ensured I was comfortable and checked in frequently to ensure I was doing well. I remember having a procedure a few years back with My as the tech and I should written a compliment for her then too. If you ever need xrays or radiology procedures, try and get it here with this amazing staff.

I would like to publicly announce the most outstanding care I received on my baby's delivery! I recently delivered my 1st baby at Whittier hospital and I can't stop boasting about how such great work the whole team did. From labor and delivery to postpartum care! Can't believe how this whole team in both departments took well CARE of me and my newborn. This hospital definitely deserves the Best Award in CARE because they put the CARE in HEALTHCARE! THANK YOU! To my nurses Rosario, Yali, and Kim the shift manager for the LOVE, CARE, AND ATTENTION! Thank you, to all the team that took part in my delivery. OB Purdom is the Best! - Barbie L.

I delivered my baby girl at Whittier Hospital on Sunday July 22nd, and the nurses were truly wonderful to both myself, my husband and our new baby. While in Labor and Delivery, Katerina took excellent care of me, always making sure my ice was full and taking me to the restroom as often as I needed. Once the baby came, Miss Doris in the nursery was so kind and patient with us. My baby had a stomach issue and had to be taken to the nursery for multiple tests and during this process Miss Doris kept us informed and let us come visit her in the nursery when our daughter was in between tests. She's really an amazing lady, and I think my anxiety would have been through the roof if it wasn't for her. And finally Melanie, my postpartum nurse... she was so kind and always positive. She checked on me all the time, making sure we were comfortable. These 3 nurses really made my stay at Whittier Hospital as comfortable as possible, and they are the reason for my 5 star review. Thank you so much for all your kindnesses! - Erica G.

"I had the best experience in the maternity area. My plan was to deliver in a birth center. Everything went the wrong way so we end it up at the Whittier Hospital. When I got there everything was ready.
I had my midwife Simona Istrate delivered my baby but the rest of the team was fantastic.
They followed every one of my birth preferences, and I was very specific. Every one in the team was so human and empathic.
I'm 100% satisfied" - Ainhoa Zapata

"I received a phone call from my son at around 1500 saying that he had cut his hand pretty bad and was heading to WHMC. I told him that I would meet him in the ER. He had cut his had right between the thumb and index finger on his left hand. Right in the middle of that web that we have there. It was very deep and I knew that he was going to need stitches. We were called to the back within 5 minutes of waiting, triaged and sent to the minor room. A very nice PA named Brittany came in and took care of him. She cleaned out the wound and put both a deep layer of sutures and skin sutures in it. She explained everything to him before she did it keeping him at ease the whole time. He was placed in a splint at the end and sent home. Overall we had a great experience at this hospital. I would recommend it to everyone that I know. Great job to everyone that took real good care of him."

“I would like to commend and recognize Nurse B.. She was caring for my mother and was very informative and always projected a positive sense of urgency… thank you very much Nurse B. and keep up the great job!”

I wanted to express my thanks and appreciation to the staff below. ER RNs: Kelly and Steve - Kelly was very helpful and caring. Steve was the most compassionate and professional RN I have seen or worked with. Steve was quick to act, whether it was for a pt or for a colleague. Even during the change of shift, he made a point to ensure that I was comfortable and my needs were met. RN on 2nd floor: Thien was the nurse assigned to me. Like RN Steve, Thien was patient, professional and sincere. He made his rounds on time, and also made sure that my questions and concerns were answered promptly and accurately. Please tell each of them, thank you for caring for me!!
