He was terrible back in 2010 when we saw him as well, yelled did not help appeared nutty and off balance. We will never go to any of the two Medical Centers he works for French and Arroyo Grande where they really hate him.

You need to file suit and complaints with the Board, Public Health and State Accreditation as well as JACHO, Medical Board who by the way is familiar with him from previous non-disclosed complaints

I am all to familiar with how Dignity its staff and its French Hospital have engaged in a pattern of failing to treat the ill or injured, alter records, charge for services not provided, given placebos in lieu of proper medicines. Make false claims to insured patients, commit fraud, conspire to collect illicit monies and bilk from Insurance companies and medicare. So be warned about Dignity and French Hospital for as one member said " Some very Ugly things are going on in Dignity and at French"

French is NOT one of the top Hospitals, they have paid $$ to Thomson Reuters to get the ratings from them. Thomson Reuters is a for profit stock market firm who gets paid to give ratings, so French Paid to get this misleading ratings.

According to the firm Dignity dba French Hospital hired they did in fact admit that they were $ Paid $ to say what they said about the Hospital. In Fact the BBB gives French Hospital a F rating, and is not even accredited by the BBB. Dignity owners of French are facing massive lawsuits, layoffs, Federal Investigations and a recent State Investigation revealed they have been defrauding patients, Medicare and Insurance companies and have " Committed False and Fraudulent billings" they have a History of negligence and fraud. As one ER Dr.Greenberg from French said go to Sierra Vista for proper service.

All one has to do is a legal and public fact check, on the Guilty judgements against CHW now Dignity for Criminal Investigations, the US DOJ, FBI, OIG, HHS etc. have cases against them for " False and dishonest billings' they have thus far paid out in settlements in the Millions, the US Attorney of Eastern District of California Ben Wagner announced over $9,000,000.00 Million against Dignity/CHW for filing and getting illicit monies under the Federal False Claims Act, the FBI and HHS have ongoing Criminal Fraud and False Claims investigations on going against over 23 Dignity CHW facilities, in a three Western State probe, California, Arizona and Nevada.

So in Fact they have defrauded and scammed the taxpayer and federal government and still are. I know I was interviewed this week about French Hospital for fraud by the Feds. SO the facts are all public. I will be testifying at a Federal Grand Jury in June about ongoing internal fraud at several Dignity facilitates and I'm telling all with documents to boot. Dignity and CWH,FHMC can lie, run, hide and destroy records but you will be caught again, and this time instead of paying millions in fraud fines JAIL.

French Hospital formerly a Catholic Healthcare Works,(CHW) now known as Dignity Health Center's having numerous Hospitals mainly in California, Arizona and Nevada and elsewhere.
Having been a patient for years, I can say with first hand facts many now public. I was in a room with the curtain drawn, so no one knew i was at the end. One elderly man was brought in, within a few minutes i heard the nurse come in and state the following " Oh Father XXXXXXX sorry your ill i will take care of you Father " She said she is part of the Monterey Diocese as well. Would you like a visitor a monsignor is here.
He said Yes, a man ID'd himself as XXXXXX from the Catholic Church and they are friends, unknown to them i was in the far end with curtain drawn, what i heard next sickened me. The " The patient asked the Priest to sit on his bed with him and spoke of how they missed each other, and would he take care of there "Little Male Friend" they spoke in discussing homosexual overtones of a under age boy and how they miss holding him and touch his genitals.
After only a few sick listening minutes i made it known i was also a patient in the room ? much to there surprise the older "Pervert" left, i called for my nurse and wife and asked to be moved to another Hospital which i did. I would never ever support or go to CHW again, now that it is Dignity nothing has changed I have numerous friends who know of the disgusting things that still go on and are covered up.
I just today learned that our US Attorney Ben Wagner has made it known in a press release that indeed over 7 CHW & Dignity facilities in California and several other states have falsified billings and ordered to pay back to the Federal Government over $,9,000,000.00 and major judgements over another $200,000,000.00 and more on the way under the Federal False Claims Act, they have Lied, committed Perjury, filed false and misleading fraudulent claims.
They have defrauded the Veterans Administration, Tricare, HHS, SS, Medicare, Medicaid, and numerous insurance companies. They have also had to pay for violations of American with Disabilities Act, Civil Rights, Misconduct in the Medical profession, early discharge of ill patients to save money, against the medical best interest of the patients. According to the Office of the Inspector General, FBI, HEAT (Health Enforcement Action Team) they have violated HIPAA, ADA and so many other federal and state violations when patients complain they get threatened another criminal violation.
If you read CHW-Dignity's Integrity Program guidelines, Mission Statement and ethics code they have violated everyone of their own rules and policies. They are corrupt, dishonest, liars accepted kick backs, bribes, Medical Fraud, caused the death of unsuspecting patients falsified records and are not here to help the POOR or DISENFRANCHISED as they say they are. Their Judicial records on the ongoing Federal, State Criminal and Civil investigation ongoing. Several Traveling Nurses and former CNA's have come forward and given statements and affidavits to the right people, lawyers, media, and Federal Criminal Agents as well as Public Health regulatory agencies. They have one agenda to defraud and kick out patients and not treat those who are poor and disenfranchised, they only want to fill their own personal pockets with money and gratify there self indulging interests. I stay away from all Dignity related facilitates as do many from my Church.

100% on the mark, i did a Nexis lexis check and a national judicial judgment check and they owe millions in fraud, and the feds are all over them, so this is of no surprise thanks for exposing them. I will tell my doctor to never send me their for tests again. I did hear the CEO is in hot water for touching a male employee with intentions for sexual favors. Last year.

It is with interest that Dignity Health and it many hospitals from French Hospital in San Luis Obispo to St. Francis and many more have been uncovered in the now AHCJ report along with Medicare fraud reports.

Dignity and its many fake Not-for-Profit now have the highest complaints, lawsuits poor medical rating in the State. The Association of Health Care Journalist, Medicare, CMS and court records reveal Dignity has the worst record and most complaints out of all hospital in California, Nevada and Arizona.

Dignity Medical Centers have been facing hundreds of millions in legal judgements and fines and now they are being investigated for Federal Fraud.

Ha you people all these negative posts are being written by ONE man Scott Barnes! He has been trying to slander and wreck different people and businesses for years for years! He writes under many many accounts spewing lies and falsehoods to cause financial suffering to anyone he takes a dislike too.

He creates many throwaway blogging accounts and posts exaggeration and lies, even responding to himself with another account. When our builder Hertell got in trouble with the Rancho Obispo development, Scott Barnes posted many times exaggerating the scope of the issues in order to extort more money. Look for your self http://www.topix.com/forum/city/santa-maria-c...

Later Scott barnes was localiy exposed when All Brill and Scott were sued "violated his privacy and libeled him in posts that mentioned the words “money laundering,” that alluded to a past criminal conviction, and that implied he was cooperating with an investigation into another builder."
