Long story short. I was involved in a car accident and had bad neck /shoulder /back pains.
I waited around for hours. Was seen by John C Fremont Healthcare District. Gave me a cat scan.
After hours they came up with the diagnoses that I had a C4 fracture but could not tell if it was active or not so they said I should take an ambulance to the Trauma Center in Modesto.
They also put a very uncomfortable neck brace on me that made the back pain even worse.
Throughout the only experience, I only saw the main doctor once and no one was able to give me a precise answer on what was wrong with me
Suggested that’s why I should go to the Trauma Center and that I was lucky to be alive and that I could be in critical condition.
They tried pushing me to take an ambulance, making me believe that if I even move my body wrong I could become paralyzed for life.
I declined and my father came to pick me up. Throughout my interactions with JCF, most of the people I dealt with were short, indecisive and rude.
Arriving at the Sutter Health Trauma Center, they reviewed the catscan results from JCF and found that I had a very bad neck sprang and that the fractures were very old and had long since healed.
I was seen by a couple doctors and the last one, a neurologist took the neck brace off immediately.
The people at Sutter Health were patient, kind and sincere with all of their interactions with me.
I would have posted this in 2015 but life got in the way. I would not recommend John C Fremont Hospital at any cost!
