They make more medical mistakes than any other place. Some are very very serious. Don't use them.

They claim they're rated high in patient care but they asked doctors what they think of the place, not patients and x-patients.

I can't count the number of times I run into people who have switched providers because of bad care.

The place needs to be shut down.

Denver Health? I had 4 visits there and 3 of them they messed up, one was when they outright left me sitting in the E.R. without help and then sent me home like they seen me.

Shabby place.

That reminds me of when I was bleeding from my uterus. I was bleeding so much I got very weak just walking half a block. They checked my blood level and said it was way too low then just sent me home. No care, no checking to see what can be done. No trying to find a solution. I ended up having to go to St. Joseph who checked and found I had fibroids and they said I would bleed forever unless I got them taken out, so I did.

So much for Denver Health "helping" out.
I'll never go back!

And to think that was the umpteenth time in a few years of their having done that to me!

There needs to be oversight of hospitals not just individual doctors.

I doubt anyone is as bad as they are. I have a neighbor who used the dental clinic for his kid. He stopped going because they wouldnt fix a cracked tooth that was causing a lot of pain for a year. I've heard others complain as well.

Their dental clinic is also bad. I had a cracked tooth and pain and they refused to pull it. Finally after a year of trying to get someones attention I just went elsewhere.

They stink!

Many years.

They used to be named "Denver General Hospital" (DGH) and were known for bad care. Then the Board of Directors changed the name to Denver Health Medical Center in an attempt to lose their bad image. It failed because the care still stinks.

They also run Denver's 911 and ambulance system. They can't do that right either. In 2010, there was an investigative report done by channel 7 (see link below) about how it's broken:

CALL7 Investigation Uncovers Denver's Broken Ambulance System
http://www.thedenverchannel.com/news/33-minut...

Seems they can't do anything right.

I went to Denver Health because I had terrible pain in my abdomen, 5 Doctors stood around the bed I was lying on and told me I had Cancer of my appendix that had spread to my colon and they would have to do emergency surgery to remove it and then I would most likely only live for five years after successful surgery........Well they removed my "enlarged" appendix and there never was or is Cancer.....Telling someone they have Cancer and five years to live is the worst case scenario....I wouldn't go back there if I was dying

my husband went there because he hurt his back. it took them over a year to diagnose a compression fracture between his shoulders. also i have had problems in the past with what they call villous adenomas (precancerous polyps) & was told by a proctologist to keep a really close eye on these. well, during the time hubby was hurt & off of work i had to go there too. they took me in for a colonoscopy because i had been having problems again. after the procedure, they told my husband that there was a blockage there, but didn't know what it was! and told me i had to go in for surgery for 1 of the adenomas. they also told my husband they would check on the blockage while they were doing this...they never did. they also gave me tylanol, that i had already told them i was allergic to & of course, i threw it up within 10 minutes. they sent me home, bleeding profusely from the surgery. so my husband called them later on that evening & tried to get in touch with someone on this & was hung up on 4 times! so i ended up bleeding for 3 days! and in total; agony because i can't take pain meds (i'm allergic to all of them). after that i told my husband they were trying to kill me, because they don't want poor people in this world! i finally got a chance to go somewhere else & found that i had a tumor the size of an orange! where i went, they had me tested, surgery, & on chemo all within 1 month. the surgeon told me if i hadn't had the surgery that day, i would've died! later on about 6 months or so, i had heard of a lady that went there for help because she was very ill. they told her to go take a seat. she went out in the hall because there wasn't 1 & laid on the floor & died! i certainly hope others don't have to go threough what we did. please, please someone step in & take care of this mess!!!!!!!
