All three doctors that cared for me not only spoke perfect english, but were American grads......I do not recall have one FMG work on me.That was 4 days from the ER to discharge, totally private room, set a bed up for my wife to stay with me....perhaps it's all about how your bill is being paid....

DB, my wife had to spend a week at Inland Valley Medical Center in 2011, and though we'd heard complaints in the past, our experience was great all the way through. From its cleanliness to the attentive staff (also English speakers) we found nothing to complain about.

Alek, that is what insurance is for, And my point is directed at weather or not you are in a HMO or PPO or other indemnity plans versus Medicare or Medi-Cal, I know, too much for your small uneducated mind mind to comprehend.

I am on Medicare and my care was equal to yours DB, disappointing to you?

My husband was at inland valley hospital and received excellent nursing care when he was hospitalized after breaking his hip in an auto accident.The doctors were however were non attentive and difficult to talk to. After waiting 2 days to get a consult from ortho, a man who you could barely understand told us it was best to leave the hip broken but if we really wanted it fixed, he could try a procedure that he's never performed before. I immediately got on the phone with our insurance company who we have through my husbands work and they assigned us a patient advocate. Inland valley actually refused to release my husband and delayed his release another 2 days. Needless to say, we got excellent care from loma Linda (not Murrieta) and he had surgery the following morning. His hip was repaired with no complications. BTW, HD tested positive for MRSA when he was checked into Loma Linda so that was his going away present to my husband from inland valley
