About Jose Pelayo, MD

My love for medicine was born during high school, when I first experienced technical training in a clinical medical laboratory. My goal is to offer patients the best evidence-based medical care possible. I will listen to their concerns and involve them in care decisions, which has always been my medical philosophy. In my spare time, I enjoy running and traveling.

Dr ordered 'stat' blood work and xrays. Most likely conclusion was dehydration and/or medications. Planned to give fluids/IV at clinic but was overruled by head nurse as clinic procedures no longer allowed this. Dr said he would arrange for patient to go to Sharp Chula Vista Medical Center (hospital) ER for receive IV. All of us thought this would be a 'simple' process. However, had to wait 45-60 minutes for transport. Had to wait 2-3 hours before IV was issued (now about 1530-1600). Previous to this, hospital staff wanted to run standard admittance Items (blood work, EKG, xrays) that had just been done In the last two hours. Hospital staff was friendly, but did not offer any valid explanations as to why they could not use the results of the morning tests. Seems like a lack of coordination and record processing between the two facilities. Even after patient received IV, the ER Dr was unaware that patient had already been given IV by staff - had to show him the port still In arm to show it had been done. Again, a lack of coordination between ER staff. Everyone was kind and understanding, conclusion by us is that people were great but the process needs to be reviewed.
