What Our Patients Are Sharing

"I was thrilled to come to Eastern Plumas District Hospital in the summer of 1981 as a young man. I poured my heart and soul into being a Country Doc. Many years have passed...I am now retired. Recently I needed to have some routine lab tests done and chose to try the Portola Hospital again. I am pleased to say that whole experience, from Becky's friendly and efficient check-in to Allyson's expert blood drawing in the lab, was excellent. The patient Portal worked flawlessly, and I had printouts of my results within hours. Congratulations, Eastern Plumas Health Care- you seem to be heading on the right track. We are lucky to have you." Christopher D Stanton MD (Plumas News)

“I was late for my appointment, and it was important to see Mary, the front desk was kind enough to ask Mary if she would see me. They put me back on her schedule and promptly got me checked in, my name was called before they were finished checking me in. Fast service, and kind people” (Portola Medical Clinic)

“Been living here for 20 yrs. Every time any member of my family has gone to emergency, the best of care has always been given. The nurses are so great, and the doctors are wonderful. A+ in my book” (ER)

“My overall visit to the Emergency Room was great. I had suffered a Heart Attack and had to go to the Emergency Room. The ER Doctor was really good & nurses. The ER Doctor wanted me to go to Renown Hospital to see a Cardiologist for my Heart Attack. The Ambulance took me to Renown Hospital to get treatment for my Heart Attack. The EPHC ER Doctor saved my life. The ER Doctor & Nurses deserve a Big Christmas Bonus. No Complaints in my visit to the ER- just smiles. Thank you to the EPHC ER Doctor & Nurse, I get to enjoy another Christmas with my family. Merry Christmas & Happy Holidays” (ER)
