This practice sucks at getting people in and out under 2 hours, won't happen!!!! I would NEVER go to this practice!!!!!!!!! Not only that but my best friend saw her doctor once during her pregnancy, once!! Really??? They are way over booked, with how little time the doctor spends with their patience, 5 mins a patient or not seeing them at all, you'd think they could clear out a waiting room really quick!!!!! NOPE!!!! I will NEVER suggest this practice to be one to use!!!!!!!

You'd think they'd do what ever they could to be a good practice with the economy.

A patient with a newborn shouldn't have to wait 2.5 hours.

I don't think any waiting room should ever have patients standing, waiting to be seen.

We checked in, told them to call us while we waited in the car. An hour later, we got a call. Patient went in peed in a cup, got her blood pressure taken, weight checked & then we waited for another hour. She finally went in and was in the room for 20 mins before being seen. Over 2.5 hours after getting there, we were leaving. Her appt was at 10:50 we left at 1:30! That is pathetic!!!!!!!!!! It should NEVER be that way!!!!!

This practice provides excellent care!!! Most people who come here have medi-cal...FREE health care...we the taxpayers pay..they don't have to pay one red cent. More doctors are refusing to see medi-cal patients because they don't get paid very well. I have private insurance and I have to wait over an hour...What are you missing Jerry Springer? Maury? We all have choices to see which doctor we chose to see...Why would you go somewhere you're not happy. My family and friends are more than happy with how were taken care of. All these posts are obviously from the same, probably crack smoking tweeker.

This clinic is a scam! Besides that, waiting time is never less than 2 hrs. Way overcrowded. The Dr spends 2 min with you, and that's if the clinic didn't call and cancel your appt. Clinic scheduled my c section at KMC. When I went for my c section, I was IN the bed ready to go, and a nurse walked in and said that I was getting sent home because I was 2 days shy of 39 weeks, and that my Dr should have known better and not have scheduled me because they don't do c sections before 39 weeks. THEN, the clinic didn't even apologize for my inconvenience, instead they told my Kern Family case worker that I was a no show for my c section. I went in person and asked why they said I was a no show and they denied it. Be smart and don't go to this place.

To respond to this person, as for ME, my husband lost his job and we lost our insurance and I was already pregnant at the time. We called a bazillion places and no one would take MediCal. THEY took MediCal, and so I was happy to have found a Dr. What all these people are saying is true. I would wait and wait and wait, to basically pee in a cup. By the time I realized how horrible this place was, I didn't really have a choice because I was too far along in my pregnancy and no other doctor would take me after being so many weeks pregnant. So I went reluctantly. This clinic was awful. It was very clean, but it was run terribly... and I think the care is not very precise.

Ha! I agree. And it would also help if the men in there would be gentlemen and let the very pregnant women have the seats!

Perhaps you should be grateful that they were willing to see you as you mentioned, you called a "Bazillion" places and no one would take Medical... you think about that next time you make an appointment at another medical facility and they will ONLY see you if you have insurance. Its obvious that these other medical facilities only cared to see you when you had insurance (which equals money to them) and could care less of your financial problems.

It sounds like you work there and have a problem with medical patients.

The clinic wasn’t too bad but the care I received from the doctor was the worst of my life. I went to this clinic for my prenatal care and always seen a nurse practitioner until the last couple of weeks when I finally met my doctor. I needed something from her and she flipped out on me and terminated my care and said that medi-cal patients were giving her too much attitude. So I was left with no medical care for the last three weeks of my pregnancy. I was lucky and a new doctor took me in. This was not ok and I’m still in the process of making my formal complaints. I have one thing to say about that doctor just because someone receives medi-cal does not mean that they are not intelligent or even have always received help. When you graduated from medical school you took a vow to help everyone, not just patience with insurance. Good Luck.

Sounds like you're a little wacked! You're lucky you found not 1 but 2 doctors that still want to see medi-cal patients. What are you griping about be glad you get FREE so called insurance. Get a job like the rest of us and you would't have to depend on all of our tax payers money to support your lazy behind!!

we always have a choice. Wow no other doctor would take you!! No you were too lazy to look for someone else. This place is clean. The girls are really nice and the doctors are good. Duh that's why they are so busy. there are clinics you can go to. I have been to them and the wait is a lot longer. Be glad there are people out there that want to take care of medical patients. I am!! and you sould be too!

First OFF I'd like to state that I'm NOT an Medicare, medical, welfare and I definitely don't smoke crack. My insurance is expensive and I had the joy of dealing with this clinic. The "dr" is very unprofessional and yes the comments about the wait is very true. I once went for an appointment and half of the seats were filled up by men and being 8 months pregnant at the time I was in pain and no one offered a seat so I complained to the desk and they just told me they could reschedule my appointment. There is signs stating no children in the office, but men ( who clearly do not even need to be there) are taking up all the seats!). When I finally met the dr for the first time she told me she believed I had pre eclampsia( had high blood pressure, protein in urine, swelling really bad, and vision changes), she told me she was going to induce if the results were bad because what i may have is deadly!!she gave me the labs to get blood work done and because I had to wait allllll friggin day to be seen all labs were closed and I had to wait all weekend to just get my blood drawn and get a urine container for 24 hr urine and then wait a week for results. Well I get them done and after waiting to hear my results I am on edge to hear if I'm being induced. we ask if she got the results and she says "yeah" and doesn't tell me if they are good or bad!! She tells me to lie back and checks my cervix (this is my first child, and have no experience with getting my cervix checked) it literally made me cry and after she's done she stands there and starts flipping out on me and my fiancé, saying how SHE'S uncomfortable and feels tension in the air and said when the baby comes its going to be horrible and if we want we can go to the dr down the street cause "he sucks at what he does thats why he doesn't have a wait like I do" and mentioned in uncomfortable because I'm overweight.(still don't know the results) we did not even complain to her and aren't I the one that should feel uncomfortable? The fact I had been anticipating to hear if I were to be induced or not, and the fact that I had JUST got my cervix checked! Before she came in we were happy and laughing. By the time we left I was crying. And didn't know what to do. She calls me a week later and tells me " I got your results after u left... Are u seeing flashing lights?" apparently I have pre e and she is not doing her job and lied saying she got my results and didn't! My mom is a phlebotomist and found out my blood results on her own because the dr wasn't telling me I HAVE LOW KIDNEY FUNCTION and the protein in my urine is waaaay too high! And now I can't be seen until april2 which is past my due date and she has only seen me 2 times and all she has done is bitch me out and cost me a hospital visit to find out if my friggin kidneys are working and if my baby is ok! Seriously don't go to that dr!

I am 6 months pregnant and this people lost my file.. I had to complete all my paper work again. I definitely don't recommend this place. The wait is hrs. And the service is the worst ever regardless if u pay cash, medical or the best insurance in the world. If Dr.s can't handle all the patients why do they allow all of them.
