Best place!! Years back a relative came here,  and his life forever changed still Cancer free after 25 years!! Now, today my son is here, the finest doctors, nurses, techs, CNA´s Nikita!!, My family physician said, this is I  would go, if it were my own family that had cancer. It is the Best Place. My son is now in Remission. The doctors care here , and will do what they can to help. Today, my son is receiving his Chemo. I wanted to again stress the staff , such individuals like Newdia CNA. Everyone my son is here for his chemo, I Always see how hard she works, sometimes doing 3,4 things at once. If the nurses need her help,  there she is time and time again. Always with a smile on her face. Yet she never sits idle. We the families would like to say thank you. It´s the fine cre our loved ones receives that make City of Hope, stand out. Thanks you!My son is Cancer Free as of January 2019.

I have now been a patient at City of Hope for 18 years. It is because I have continued my care here that I was able to detect my early stage breast cancer my third primary cancer. Even though three cancers seems unlucky, I truly feel blessed that my care is at City of Hope. The people I put my faith in:Dr. Judith Sato - pediatric oncologyDr. Mark Wakabayashi - gyn onc surgeryDr. Raynald Samoa - endocrinologyDr. Eric Radany - radiation oncologyDr. Ellie Maghami - head and neck surgeonDr. John Yim - breast onc surgeonDr. Mark Tan - plastics, breast reconstructionDr. Jeffrey Weitzel - geneticist Dr. Walter Chang - anesthesiaDr. James Waisman - breast oncology These doctors are only amazing because of the PAs/NPs, RNs, lvns, mas, front staff that support them too. COH recognizes the need for not only stellar MDs but amazing staff as well.Let me just say, I´ve been at many other hospitals. Because COH specializes in cancer, the entire staff is sensitive to that. I´ve seen the check in receptionist get up without offering to wheel a pt in a wheelchair to the lab for lab draw. I´ve seen schedulers go above and beyond to get me what I need. Nurses who remember my name 18 yrs later, etc. Sure, it´s not perfect, but it´s pretty close!

Everyone is overworked here.  You can see the exhaustion on their faces.  Everyone from doctors to nurses are in a rush and can´t seem to give you undivided attention to your needs, treatment plan and test results.  What blows me away is that have no problem telling you how overbooked, overworked that they all are.  You had better have your notes ready and if not a caregiver that knows how not to be pushed around.   It´s bad enough that the patient has cancer but to get competent Medical care seems like a chore.   Then there is pathetic lack of parking and a valet service that barely works.  The cafeteria is a joke and is so dated and lacking good service.   Nothing like trying to eat your breakfast and have to smell the fish they are preparing to cook for lunch.   The Bistro seems nice but runs out of product early.   The village/studio apartments do I start?! No dishwasher, no central a/c, tiny tv and staying there for a month!!

Dr. Mark Wakabayashi- best doctor but you have to wait at least 1 1/2 hour - 2 hours to see him with an appointment. Not sure if he´s always late or it´s a scheduling issue but he´s in the room with me maximum 10 minutes so not sure why he´s always running 1-2 hours behind. It kind of gets hard with your work unless you basically take the day off. Awesome doctor to do your surgery but terrible to see him yearly and wait that long

My mother recently was diagnosed with breast cancer which was a traumatic event for everyone in the family. We were going to go to a hospital nearby, but a family friend recommended going to City of Hope due to a positive experience. Our doctors here at City of Hope were busy but caring and tried their best to guide us and make us comfortable. They always explained things in detail and tried to be accommodating with phone numbers to reach at all times and being clear. Our doctors were numerous but we mainly dealt with John Yim and Dr. Waisman. Coffee was also handy in most of the locations we waited and scheduling wasn´t too difficult. The venues were also modern and up-to-date with a lot of comfort given to my mother for privacy.  Some of the small issues I would bring up include just a lot of different people and paperwork to go through. It´s a bit much, especially for immigrant families who may not have a strong grasp of English. If possible, get a translator which the hospital can provide. The hospital is intimidating too. Don´t follow Google Maps directly as they´ll take you down the back route which can be super confusing. Get to the main entrance by Center Dr. which will take you to the valet and parking area. Finally, Starbucks gets super crowded and is the only cafe I know of on campus believe there´s another cafe area but we never went. In all honesty, there are a few bureaucratic issues here but the experience here has been more than positive. Without the doctors here, I´m not sure what would have happened to my mother. Thank you to the staff, doctors and everyone here for the support, guidance and success we have seen.

Hope Village is a very comfortable and warming place to be during the important time to be while your loved ones is recovering or starting the recovering process. Every body is so caring and makes sure it meets your comfort levels. The front office administration was very detailed in explaining the ground policy´s.

Great reputation as a cancer hospital but as an employer, they´re harmful to your health. I worked here for 5 months and for a long time after, I thought the unusually bad treatment I experienced from my manager derision, open hostility, micro-management and worse was isolated and mainly limited to my manager. I even tried for a while to get a permanent position there. That was until I began talking to former employees and a friend who left there in 2018. Most have horror stories about bosses who treat employees like they should be grateful they have a job, that they´re replaceable and dumb. It´s like learning that a person you admire is really a nightmare to work for/live with. Such a shame.

Writing a review for a hospital is not something that I thought I would have to do, but here I am.When I found out that I had to have surgery, I was beyond scared.  However, from the minute I stepped foot inside the hospital on surgery day, the entire team from the pre and post op nurses, inpatient nurses, and the amazing doctors that took care of me made me feel so good.  Everyone was so caring and wonderful during my 2 and a half day stay at City of Hope.  I was fortunate to also have a private room that was impeccably clean as well.  The food wasn´t that bad either.  I would like to give a specific thank you to my doctors Dr. Kebria and Dr. Lee who took such good care of me before, during and after surgery.  My RN Ray and PCA Mark who made sure I was comfortable and had everything I needed during my stay.Hopefully I will never have to go back to the hospital, but if I ever do, this is the place to go.  Everything at City of Hope is top notch.

Came for the breast cancer walk.  Nice walk thru the city of Duarte and portion of city of hope campus.   They have parking available  with variety of cancer services.  Great turnout

City of Hope is truly a center that cares for and gives attention to their patients. I came in to see Dr. Thomas Gernon and Dr. Robert Kang, and I can only say that I´ve received quality service of their knowledge and expertise. Furthermore, I greatly appreciate Dr. Robert Kang for his kind and gentle demeanor to his patients. He was one of the most understanding and compassionate doctors and surgeons that I´ve come across. I came here to seek medical treatment, but I felt like I had found a friend who really cares for the condition that I was in. I only came by for an appointment with a small sector of City of Hope in their head and neck cancer department, but if this is the kind of service and care they give to their patients such as one I have received from Dr. Kang, I would highly recommend this hospital to anyone who is in need of their service! Thank you, Dr. Kang!

This is my second experience with City of Hope, been dealing with lung cancer for almost ten years, now.  I was referred to Dr. Reckamp by a specialist named, Dr. Jack West in Seattle.  The issues I had in the past were related to billing, but it seems that things are quite organized now.Everyone there is kind and supportive.  The Doctors were prepared when I arrived, read and analyzed my previous test results from another provider.  Everything was explained in great detail to me, which I appreciate as a RN, myself.  They are thorough and stay on top of scheduling with phone calls.Highly recommend.  For me, it´s about 1 1/2 hours drive each way, but worth it.

This place is absolutely wonderful. From the surgeons to the volunteers, they are organized, friendly and show a lot of dedication and care to patients. Everything moves like clock work.  It´s very reassuring for patients who are healing from cancer to be in the hands of knowledgeable and caring people.

Been meaning to write a review after a close relative came here late last year for surgery related to Endometrial Cancer.  Dr. Wakabayashi was wonderful - great surgeon and incredibly patient explaining the same things a hundred times. He is an extremely dedicated doctor.  The nursing staff was fantastic too Deevena is one of the nurses who went above and beyond.   Almost a year later and this family member is pretty much back to normal and her oncologist who is not part of City of Hope said he was very pleased with the results of the surgery.  My only reason for not giving 5 stars is her abdomen kept filling up with fluid post surgery and the staff couldn´t determine the issue.  She ended up going to a different medical center they diagnosed it was a hernia and were able to treat her for it,  Overall we are very grateful!

These people are the embodiment of FRAUD personified. They caused me nothing but grief, they never answered any of my issues or fixed me. They billed my insurance for a ton of services they never rendered and they billed me copays i all ready paid and I still keep getting emails from them telling me that my payment is due soon. I even threatened legal action against them, and they still continue to send me these your payment is due soon emails. If City of Hope has actually helped you, consider yourself one of the lucky ones. They didnt do a THING for me. And I have been in contact with others they have not helped either.

City of Hope provides VERY POOR patient serviceI have had a total of ten surgeries at City of Hope with Dr. Stephen Sentovich. All was fine until the last surgery. He did not stay around long enough to tell me the status of my cancer. I was very angry. Then I went to another service provider who requested the size of my tumor. Sentovich gave me all kinds of excuses as to why he could not provide me with the information: he was out of town, he did not know the size of the tumor. Eventually after a strong letter to him he managed to recall the size of the tumor!I then received a series of letters from City of Hope, letting me know that no doctor at City of Hope would be willing to provide medical services to me. Would you want to go to a hospital the head of surgery does not stick around long enough to let you know the status of your cancer? How would you feel if he refused to provide information to you that another doctor requested? SHAME ON DR SENTOVICH and SHAME on City of Hope for defending him under these circumstances.

I took my friend to have chemo at the Womens Cancer Center.  She had an excellent nurse take care of her.  I was so impressed with Ashley Lee. She explained the procedure to my friend and she offered her food, comfort and respect.  Ashley checked on her frequently even when the chemo drip wasn´t buzzing to get her attention.The great thing about the City of Hope is that they provide it.  Every person we came contact with smiled and was helpful.  It is an amazing opportunity to be able to feel comfortable and that you are finally in the right place to get the treatment you deserve.Dr. Tran also came in and his sense of humor along with his serious care was impressive.Thank you Ashley, thank you Dr. Tran.

Waiting 2 hours for mammogram! Technician nice, not her fault. Seems that scheduling department has the problem.

This will hopefully be my last review for City of Hope.  My mother-in-law passed on January 2, 2019.  We had rough times here with how the scheduling and process went with her weekly appointments.  Thank goodness for their patient advocate team, especially Danny, who made things bareable.  Our last days at the hospital were very emotional and I the only reason why I´m giving this place 5 stars is because of the in-patient hospital staff.  They were all amazing. The nurses, RTs, lab, pca´s and even the environmental staff were all very pleasant.  We received wonderful care from the hospital team. At the end they offered our family a comfort cart which had coffee, tea, crackers and cookies.  This was a nice touch especially during this difficult time. I would suggest though that they offer this cart to all families at all times in the waiting room instead.  I know this may not be financially feesable but it will go along way and will make a statement that they really care all the time.

The wonderful place dedicated to healing : The campus is stunning. Healing gardens, zen spaces, outdoor patios, walking trails, etc. The hospital has apparently undergone tremendous growth and it is very noteworthy. They are clearly continuing to grow because they always have construction on campus. The cafeteria and bistro offer pretty spot-on food and of course, healthy options highlighted daily. PS. Cafeteria is closed 10-11am. Then lunch service ends at 2:30pm Monday to Friday only!

again. Once again back at city of hope with an infection. Once again no beds.once again no responsibility for her medicine or path of treatment. In urgent careIt´s heart breaking . An hour our stay we were assigned Anna Ponce as our RN. She really made our stay much better and even moved us to a bigger more secluded room when available until the could admit us a regular room. So it literally took the same time as last week. Just under 36 hours.   Hmmmmmm.  Thanks to Anna I´m hoping my review to 4 stars.

The venues were also modern and up-to-date with a lot of comfort given to my mother for privacy.  Some of the small issues I would bring up include just a lot of different people and paperwork to go through. It´s a bit much, especially for immigrant families who may not have a strong grasp of English. If possible, get a translator which the hospital can provide. The hospital is intimidating too. Don´t follow Google Maps directly as they´ll take you down the back route which can be super confusing. Get to the main entrance by Center Dr. which will take you to the valet and parking area. Finally, Starbucks gets super crowded and is the only cafe I know of on campus believe there´s another cafe area but we never went. In all honesty, there are a few bureaucratic issues here but the experience here has been more than positive. Without the doctors here, I´m not sure what would have happened to my mother. Thank you to the staff, doctors and everyone here for the support, guidance and success we have seen.

Hope Village is a very comfortable and warming place to be during the important time to be while your loved ones is recovering or starting the recovering process. Every body is so caring and makes sure it meets your comfort levels. The front office administration was very detailed in explaining the ground policy´s.

Great reputation as a cancer hospital but as an employer, they´re harmful to your health. I worked here for 5 months and for a long time after, I thought the unusually bad treatment I experienced from my manager derision, open hostility, micro-management and worse was isolated and mainly limited to my manager. I even tried for a while to get a permanent position there. That was until I began talking to former employees and a friend who left there in 2018. Most have horror stories about bosses who treat employees like they should be grateful they have a job, that they´re replaceable and dumb. It´s like learning that a person you admire is really a nightmare to work for/live with. Such a shame.

Writing a review for a hospital is not something that I thought I would have to do, but here I am.When I found out that I had to have surgery, I was beyond scared.  However, from the minute I stepped foot inside the hospital on surgery day, the entire team from the pre and post op nurses, inpatient nurses, and the amazing doctors that took care of me made me feel so good.  Everyone was so caring and wonderful during my 2 and a half day stay at City of Hope.  I was fortunate to also have a private room that was impeccably clean as well.  The food wasn´t that bad either.  I would like to give a specific thank you to my doctors Dr. Kebria and Dr. Lee who took such good care of me before, during and after surgery.  My RN Ray and PCA Mark who made sure I was comfortable and had everything I needed during my stay.Hopefully I will never have to go back to the hospital, but if I ever do, this is the place to go.  Everything at City of Hope is top notch.

Came for the breast cancer walk.  Nice walk thru the city of Duarte and portion of city of hope campus.   They have parking available  with variety of cancer services.  Great turnout

City of Hope is truly a center that cares for and gives attention to their patients. I came in to see Dr. Thomas Gernon and Dr. Robert Kang, and I can only say that I´ve received quality service of their knowledge and expertise. Furthermore, I greatly appreciate Dr. Robert Kang for his kind and gentle demeanor to his patients. He was one of the most understanding and compassionate doctors and surgeons that I´ve come across. I came here to seek medical treatment, but I felt like I had found a friend who really cares for the condition that I was in. I only came by for an appointment with a small sector of City of Hope in their head and neck cancer department, but if this is the kind of service and care they give to their patients such as one I have received from Dr. Kang, I would highly recommend this hospital to anyone who is in need of their service! Thank you, Dr. Kang!

This is my second experience with City of Hope, been dealing with lung cancer for almost ten years, now.  I was referred to Dr. Reckamp by a specialist named, Dr. Jack West in Seattle.  The issues I had in the past were related to billing, but it seems that things are quite organized now.Everyone there is kind and supportive.  The Doctors were prepared when I arrived, read and analyzed my previous test results from another provider.  Everything was explained in great detail to me, which I appreciate as a RN, myself.  They are thorough and stay on top of scheduling with phone calls.Highly recommend.  For me, it´s about 1 1/2 hours drive each way, but worth it.

This place is absolutely wonderful. From the surgeons to the volunteers, they are organized, friendly and show a lot of dedication and care to patients. Everything moves like clock work.  It´s very reassuring for patients who are healing from cancer to be in the hands of knowledgeable and caring people.

Been meaning to write a review after a close relative came here late last year for surgery related to Endometrial Cancer.  Dr. Wakabayashi was wonderful - great surgeon and incredibly patient explaining the same things a hundred times. He is an extremely dedicated doctor.  The nursing staff was fantastic too Deevena is one of the nurses who went above and beyond.   Almost a year later and this family member is pretty much back to normal and her oncologist who is not part of City of Hope said he was very pleased with the results of the surgery.  My only reason for not giving 5 stars is her abdomen kept filling up with fluid post surgery and the staff couldn´t determine the issue.  She ended up going to a different medical center they diagnosed it was a hernia and were able to treat her for it,  Overall we are very grateful!

These people are the embodiment of FRAUD personified. They caused me nothing but grief, they never answered any of my issues or fixed me. They billed my insurance for a ton of services they never rendered and they billed me copays i all ready paid and I still keep getting emails from them telling me that my payment is due soon. I even threatened legal action against them, and they still continue to send me these your payment is due soon emails. If City of Hope has actually helped you, consider yourself one of the lucky ones. They didnt do a THING for me. And I have been in contact with others they have not helped either.

City of Hope provides VERY POOR patient serviceI have had a total of ten surgeries at City of Hope with Dr. Stephen Sentovich. All was fine until the last surgery. He did not stay around long enough to tell me the status of my cancer. I was very angry. Then I went to another service provider who requested the size of my tumor. Sentovich gave me all kinds of excuses as to why he could not provide me with the information: he was out of town, he did not know the size of the tumor. Eventually after a strong letter to him he managed to recall the size of the tumor!I then received a series of letters from City of Hope, letting me know that no doctor at City of Hope would be willing to provide medical services to me. Would you want to go to a hospital the head of surgery does not stick around long enough to let you know the status of your cancer? How would you feel if he refused to provide information to you that another doctor requested? SHAME ON DR SENTOVICH and SHAME on City of Hope for defending him under these circumstances.

I took my friend to have chemo at the Womens Cancer Center.  She had an excellent nurse take care of her.  I was so impressed with Ashley Lee. She explained the procedure to my friend and she offered her food, comfort and respect.  Ashley checked on her frequently even when the chemo drip wasn´t buzzing to get her attention.The great thing about the City of Hope is that they provide it.  Every person we came contact with smiled and was helpful.  It is an amazing opportunity to be able to feel comfortable and that you are finally in the right place to get the treatment you deserve.Dr. Tran also came in and his sense of humor along with his serious care was impressive.Thank you Ashley, thank you Dr. Tran.

Waiting 2 hours for mammogram! Technician nice, not her fault. Seems that scheduling department has the problem.

This will hopefully be my last review for City of Hope.  My mother-in-law passed on January 2, 2019.  We had rough times here with how the scheduling and process went with her weekly appointments.  Thank goodness for their patient advocate team, especially Danny, who made things bareable.  Our last days at the hospital were very emotional and I the only reason why I´m giving this place 5 stars is because of the in-patient hospital staff.  They were all amazing. The nurses, RTs, lab, pca´s and even the environmental staff were all very pleasant.  We received wonderful care from the hospital team. At the end they offered our family a comfort cart which had coffee, tea, crackers and cookies.  This was a nice touch especially during this difficult time. I would suggest though that they offer this cart to all families at all times in the waiting room instead.  I know this may not be financially feesable but it will go along way and will make a statement that they really care all the time.

The wonderful place dedicated to healing : The campus is stunning. Healing gardens, zen spaces, outdoor patios, walking trails, etc. The hospital has apparently undergone tremendous growth and it is very noteworthy. They are clearly continuing to grow because they always have construction on campus. The cafeteria and bistro offer pretty spot-on food and of course, healthy options highlighted daily. PS. Cafeteria is closed 10-11am. Then lunch service ends at 2:30pm Monday to Friday only!

again. Once again back at city of hope with an infection. Once again no beds.once again no responsibility for her medicine or path of treatment. In urgent careIt´s heart breaking . An hour our stay we were assigned Anna Ponce as our RN. She really made our stay much better and even moved us to a bigger more secluded room when available until the could admit us a regular room. So it literally took the same time as last week. Just under 36 hours.   Hmmmmmm.  Thanks to Anna I´m hoping my review to 4 stars.

Heaven forbid anyone should ever gets cancer, this is the place to be!! Everyone from the doctors, the nurses, the schedulers, the staff on the phone and insanely NICE!! I want to reiterate this point because not every hospital or doctor´s office you visit are as nice and comforting.The doctors here are at the top of their league and they can do so because they are also able to do extensive research to back up their treatment plans. After being diagnosed with breast cancer and visiting other well known facilities, I chose City of Hope for treatments for 2 reasons Dr. Mortimer & Dr. Kruper and their overall genuine care of their patients.Both my doctors are extremely caring, nurturing and highly experienced. They are both Co-Directors of the Woman´s Center. You need something? It´s a phone call away. Someone always calls you back. They´re so on top of everything!!! They´ve got a great system of patience care management. That place is like a university campus it´s so big. The Japanese Gardens on the grounds are just so beautiful. I used to visit the garden with husband in between appointments when I had big gaps of time. Also love that they have a Starbucks on site as well. And hello, Valet parking is available at both the hospital and the medical building. To anyone reading this because you´re considering City of Hope, just go. Don´t second guess it. And secondly, God be with you in speedy healing!

Honestly, this place doesn´t help people. It´s a money grab, the doctor took 15 mins to examine me, they didn´t even run tests or anything. Just a simple check and they billed me $2,700 for that. I asked them if they can work something out in terms of lowering their price as this was a one time visit. They said they have their fees plus the doctors fees so that´s a standard rate. I feel sorry for people when this place is their only hope you may as well choose, die or spend the rest of your life in debt to them. Stupid company, stupid hospital.
