10/8/16: High Desert Palmdale is incredibly slow. 1:45 pm appt. Saw doctor at 2:30 pm. After the doctor finished and left the room we waited 25 minutes only to discover the nurse/administrative aide had not finished writing up the doctor's orders for Ct scan, run an EKG and perform flu and pneumonia shots. Prescription ordered by the doctor was sent to Walgreen's, we use CVS. Was told they would redirect the Rx to CVS. Typical hold for calls to them 20 minutes. 11/10/16: CVS advised they never received the Rx. 10/11/16: Received an unsolicited call from Carina at Heritage Health Care. She identified herself as a supervisor and was calling regarding this post of mine. She apologized for the issues I had described and said that management had addressed my concerns with the staff. I am impressed with her professionalism and the extra steps she took to address my complaints. Thank you Carina One more thing our Doctor is Sonia Sethi. An excellent, pleasant and very thorough physician.

Urgent care is really good. Really great pediatric MDS in urgent care, trust them more then the ones at AV hospital. Usually not too long a wait, hour or less.

Regular doctor here is very nice but senior urgent care is has had cough and sinus pain dor a week, nurse staff short and rude, after almost 2 hour wait doctor actually came I to room for 10 seconds...listen to my mom's lungs and told her to go see her regular doctor without asking any questions or any other exam...Doctor did concede to give an antibiotic but took 30 minutes to get perscription.

I go there with a breathing problem and they won't see me because I don't have insurance I told them I would be able to pay cash they said we don't do that here and that we can send you to another place and I told them that's not right them just taking insurance isn't right they should take people who wanna pay cash for the Dr needless to say I left

Wait is too long, doctors have the "I DON'T CARE ATTITUDE", nursing staff are cold and muted. Had to request antibiotics for my son after being diagnosed with pneumonia (co's the doctors surely didn't) they gave him pain pills only. WHO ARE YOU SPACED OUT MOO MOO's?

The nurses here are always very helpful and my appointments have always gone very well. Dr. Shikiya in Family Practice is one of the best doctors here. I highly recommend him if you are able to choose your own doctor.

Worst run medical facility in the entire A.V. The entire staff are totally incompatant from beginning to end. Should be investigated by the State Medical Board.!!!

Getting old is not criminal or sinful behavior. Screaming at, or abusing, or yelling at, or intimidating, or making fun of Senior Citizens ought to be criminal. It is not necessary and it is SO mean. My name is Steve Brown and I speak the truth. I was attacked by a technician at High Desert Money Group, when she was giving me a 'over night ox machine'. My blood pressure went up, my face was scarlet red, she could have killed me. I reported it to my doctor, and he has done or said nothing. I don't know where to turn. Has that person attacked you?
