The Fresno Heart and Surgical Hospital, in my opinion, surpasses all the other hospitals in the Fresno/Clovis area by far.

The thoroughness of care can't be beat. I have been in that hospital more than once as I have others. The competence, care, ongoing information given to me and addressing each and every one of my needs was superior.

No other hospital has ever addressed the my pain like Fresno Heart and Surgical Hospital and with such promptness. I have always felt secure that my needs were and would be met.

As an outpatient their labs, Xray and other services can't be beat. I have never had to wait like I have at other hospitals.

The only negative thing for me is they don't have an emergency department. I was taken, by ambulance, the last time I needed hospital care. They could not take me to the Fresno Heart and Surgical Hospital because they have no emergency service. However, my doctors had me transferred there the next day.
