My sister suffered a stroke on June 18th, she was taken to UCSD Hillcrest by ambulance and upon arrival she was given such great care, we can never say enough about them. Her stroke was a bacterial endocarditis, her artificial heart valve got an infection in it and every time it opened and closed it would spread the bacteria through her body. One of the bacteria clusters blocked the artery to her brain and caused her to have a stroke. She could not be treated with the usual stroke meds since hers was not a typical stroke. The bacteria had connected to her spine, in her spinal canal, on her gall bladder. We had Infectious Disease Doctors, the Stroke Team, Cardiologists, Thoracic Surgeons, Neurologists, and Nephrologist, you name it we had it and they all were so great with explaining everything every step of the way. She was in ICU at the Hillcrest Hospital and then ICU at the Sulpizio Cardiac Centerl for a total of 45 days. She had 10 hours of open heart surgery at the Sulpizio Cardiac Center adjacent to UCSD Thornton Hospital in La Jolla. They saved her life more than once during this and while it isn’t over and she has been moved to an Advanced Medical Hospital we are coming up on 3 month of being in the hospital every day is a better day. It is no wonder that UCSD is #1 in San Diego for treatment.

I had my daughter at that hospital and the doctors and nurses were great, i was ordered to go to that hospital only because the doctors knew how to take care of handicapped people like me so i went there and was treated with the upmost respect

Everyone was great only thing I wold recomend is if you go in for an accident and you were drinking but now driving specify they tend to jump to conclusions. But once they found out I was just in the car everything was cool

My daughter and I are both alive thanks to the quick response of the UCSD medical staff. I had a partially ruptured uterus, my daughter was a full mic. Aspiration with full lung damage. It took over 15 minutes of resuscitation efforts to get a pulse. The team was amazing. If we had gone anywhere else, our daughter would not have made it. They are one of the few hospitals around that have a oscillating respirator for newborns. The doctors induced a coma to reduce the chances of brain damage and it worked! The NICU staff is wonderful. Now thanks to God and the staff, we are enjoying to the full our beautiful preschooler that we almost didn't get to keep.

So on the complaint of a woman who called me satan joined by another who had expressed hysteria about a homeless girl who walked by I was taken to the ER, and when I complained in a normal tone of voice about being there, the security guards threatened to put me in a straight jacket. I laid down on the gurney and the nurse at UCSD, put something in my veins that caused amnesia,. I did not remember the event until later when I received a bill for an ambulance service: I was transported from UCSD to Sharp and from my physical reaction later as a man approached me to touch or hug, I put it together, that some boy in the ambulance fooled around with grandma's knocked out and unconscious....corpus

Do not go here - under any circumstances. I went into the ER with a laceration on my leg. They decided to give me staples. There were 2 young nurses that stapled my leg while telling me it was one of their first days. I was in a reclining chair. Please view my picture because words do not do this justice. The staples fell out that night while I was sleeping. I went to my primary physician the next day who was horrified. He removed the staples and replaced them appropriately with stitches. I will now have unnecessary staple hole scars in my leg for the rest of my life. This was an awful experience. Again - please view my picture.

Doctors are OK but the system sucks. Takes too long to see a doctor or have a referral go through. Insurance approves but UCSD takes forever to process. They never call back either when your inquiring about the status. Doctors are very textbook and its a teaching school so keep in mind you'll have students trying to survey you and like 5 doctors learning on your during exams.

If I could give this hospital zero stars I would. I went to the ER with an array of symptoms for food poisoning. Not only were the nurses rude to other people waiting in the ED there was a huge wait about 3-5 hours to be seen. I got up and left after vomiting in the waiting area and none of the nurses helped or asked if I was okay. I won't ever go there again. HORRIBLE.
