my name is Jacques G .first time i took my wife to the ER sep 2009, we waited 18hrs she was having obtomanal pain they told her she's got gas go home, couple of days later i took her to northridge hospital. they admitted her, but her insurance wouldn't let her stay there they transferred her to olive view, olive view couldn't do the test that they need it so they sent her to UCLA HARBOR what a dump,they did a needle guided biopsy and they said it was pancreatic cancer, so back to olive view because it was close to our house, they started chemo for 3 months, and 32 setions of radiation, a week later they did a cat scan, her doctor, oncologist HELEN KANG said nothing worked, told my wife she only has couple of months left to enjoy rest of her life, they don't even have a surgeon at olive view, couple of days later i took her to northridge hospital her pain was to severe. they admitted her, she got to see a pancreatic cancer surgeon, got a second opinion, the surgeon said he could do the surgery of resection the pancreas and take out the tumor. but her insurance wouldn't cover him, so he told us to go to USC, i transferred her insurance to USC, Jan 2011, had to start everything over, got to see a pancreatic cancer surgeon, they did allot of test. and we got a surgery date may 5th, they will do the surgery 8hrs long, but she will be OK, so olive view had no clue on what to do, instead of sending her some where else they just gave up on her, so if you thing you have a cancer stay away from olive view hospital, there oncology department sucks. i wonder how many other patience have be told the same thing, and they just die, after my wife has her surgery at USC and gets better i will be suing olive view, and doctor HELEN KANG. this isn't over yet, so please stay away from olive view UCLA medical center you have a problem go to USC it will be worth the drive.
