    Patient Comments (1)
    Riverside, CA |
    My father has been in the Hoag ICU for 5 days, and Dr Van Meter has not visited or called once (despite his office being across the street). When our family requested that he talk with us and the neurologist, he had the nerve to leave a message with ICU staff that he had left town. This is not a physician worth paying a dime, let alone high fees for him to "advocate" for his patients. My father is his patient, lying in the ICU with a brain injury, who has received zero advocacy. Shameful.
    We are very sorry that you feel we were not responsive. Dr Van Meter did speak with the family as well as the neurologist, hospitalist, nursing staff and ER physicians the day after he left on vacation and continued to speak to the on-call doctors as well as communicate with you via text and other family members via phone while he was away. No other physician would call a patient's family members daily while on vacation. We know this is a difficult time for your family while your father is ill.
