" Dr.
has been my doctor for many years. He takes the time to listen to my concerns, ask questions and provide me with excellent care. If I need to see a specialist he will recommend one and always follow up. I am 70 years old now and I can't imagine changing doctors. I have recommended him to both my family and friends. All are as pleased as I have been. His long time assistant
has been so kind and very helpful, too. They both are very compassionate. We need more doctors like this.

"I have been going to Dr.
's office for years. I like both him and Dr. Demoise very much. On rare occasion I have had to wait for the doctor to review his hygienist work because I received the okay to work. However, one of the doctors always explained that there was an emergency, and apologized for the delay. My only issue with the office was a billing issue for my daughters work. Due to law updates, etc she switched from my insurance to her own insurance to her dad's insurance, and then back to mine. Although we were specific each time we went in as to whose insurance she was under, and provided the insurance card, the last two times were not handled well. We are out of the country and schedule the appointments for our visits back to the states. I make sure to confirm everything prior to and after each appointment. I have explained we are out of the country and provided my magic
number for any issue's. After the prior visit they called my daughter on her cell phone claiming a problem with the insurance and that the claim was denied. I spoke with them and ask if they ran it under my SSN, which they had not. I offered to stop in so they could copy her insurance card to prevent and future problems, which they declined the need for. After leaving the country I received a bill and had to deal with the issue again. The final contact resolved the problem. This last visit resulted in issues prior to the appointment because the new insurance information was not entered correctly in the computer. Once again a phone call was made to my home in the states three days before our dentist appointment, and two days before we were flying home. Since my husband did not get the message until the office was closed I could not deal with it until the next day. The message stated they could not perform any work if I didn't straighten out the insurance issue. NOT VERY PROFESSIONAL TO WAIT THREE DAYS BEFORE AN APPOINTMENT TO LEAVE THIS TYPE OF MESSAGE. Not only was it not professional, it was frustrating they the number I have continually provided is not used.

"The staff is efficient and friendly. Dr.

is the best. You immediately are at ease with him and he sincerely makes you feel like you are the most important patient he is seeing today. He takes whatever time it takes to address your specific issues and concerns. I highly recommend him."

"After moving to the South Hills, I was told to try
Pittsburgh Family Practice Doctors Provider Name Locked
as a PCP. My first visit was after the birth of my daughter, when I was experiencing symptoms of postpartum depression. The doctor's solution was for me to hire a doula to help with my daughter. That was hardly the medical advice I was seeking. Several months later, my daughter was in Children's Hospital for a very serious illness, and I began having symptoms of kidney stones. The on call doctor, who was very nice, called in a script for pain relief and also spoke to the lab at children's so they could run a test on me. I was told to call back for the results. When I called, the office staff was incredibly rude. They repeatedly told me that I must be mistaken,and no test was ordered. They wouldn't check with the doctor that ordered the test. After several days of them promising to call back, and not returning phone calls, and very rude office people telling me that I didnt know what I was talking about, I had my child's pediatrician read the results for me. This is not acceptable in any circumstance, but I would have expected more compassion given that they knew that my infant daughter was in the ICU."

"He is probably going to retire soon. I
Pittsburgh Family Practice Doctors Provider Name Locked
’t know if he is taking any new patients. He is a nice guy. He is a wonderful diagnostician. I feel like he cares about me and would not short with me to save a buck which frequently doctors do. It’s definitely a good quality in a physician. I would definitely use him in the future."

"I had another appointment scheduled with her in late January 2012 as a follow up to my November appointment, but had to cancel it due a work travel related change. That January appointment was supposed to be scheduled for mid to late December, but could not be accomplished due to lack of available hours. I have also been unable to reschedule that January appointment due to lack of availability of evening hours for Dr

Since the practice has changed from being associated with West
Pittsburgh Family Practice Doctors Provider Name Locked
to UPMC, I have noticed a decline in availability and some administrative issues. Also, there has been a little bit of a down grade in the interaction with Dr.
Pittsburgh Family Practice Doctors Provider Name Locked
(UPMC has the doctor enter information directly into a computer file for the patient and she is a little less interactive and the appointments don't go quite as well as they used to prior to their introduction).
Also related to that change in association, I have noticed there is a push to use other UPMC services and more suggestions for referrals that I feel may be unnecessary. I have become slightly
Pittsburgh Family Practice Doctors Provider Name Locked
of this change, as I don't go to a doctor's office to get a sales pitch. I have experienced this with other UPMC offices & doctors and felt that their skill level in combination with the sales pitch was a reason not to return.
However, given the level of her service prior to this change, I am still giving Dr.
Pittsburgh Family Practice Doctors Provider Name Locked
an overall A grade because of her effectiveness and diagnostic abilities, while accounting for the systemic bugs that occur when one changes organizations.

"He was recommended to me by my brother. I don't even know if he is accepting any new patients. He took me because he knows my brother, and he was very close with him. I think he is outstanding. He is a league runner, and that was something my wife and I were considering because we are both runners and many doctors we go to don't really relate to running injuries. He has had some experience himself, so it is very refreshing to have someone whom I can talk to about some issues like that, so that made a big difference to me. He definitely spent a lot of time with me upfront on the initial visit, and he went through the history and everything and did a lot of initial testing, and it was one of the most complete physicals I have had in a long time, so it was definitely worthwhile. He is also a
Pittsburgh Family Practice Doctors Provider Name Locked
University physician, so I don't think he is going to be able to take anybody new because he is tied up with the whole university, and he goes especially to UPMC and
Pittsburgh Family Practice Doctors Provider Name Locked
Medical Center in Sports Medicine, but as I said, the only reason my wife and I were able to see him was because he worked with my brother who is a trainer, and he accepted us because of my brother. I have an appointment with him this coming Friday which is a followup to the initial that I had back in December. I had a knee injury, which was one of the reasons that I went to see him so that he can relate to those kinds of injuries more specifically than other general internal medicine physicians have in the past, and there were a lot of things that sort of came together. He is just a likeable kind of guy, and I just hope I die before he does as I don't want to look for anybody else.

"He’s wonderful, the best way I can describe him is that he is about ninety years old. He reminds me of that
Pittsburgh Family Practice Doctors Provider Name Locked
painting of that old family doctor giving that little boy a shot, his office even looks like that. He still makes house calls for patients that cannot get out of their houses, and he’s eighty nine or ninety. He has been doing it for sixty to seventy years. He’s just an old fashioned family doctor like doctors are supposed to be. When I go in to see him, he sits me down, looks me in the eyes and asks me what’s wrong or where it’s paining, he doesn’t rush me through, he goes through my whole family history again. Whatever the problem is, he will run a test, or attempt to do whatever the insurance company will let him do, or he will try to find another way of doing it. I am going to be at a loss when he passes. I do not see this man retiring; he loves what he is doing. My husband and I usually go to him for a full physical every March, and he is usually in a suit and tie, but that time when we went, he was in a running suit. He apologized for it and told us that he had a bad knee and was to undergo knee surgery, so he was more comfortable working in the running suit. I
Pittsburgh Family Practice Doctors Provider Name Locked
’t see this man retiring; he is there five days a week, between the two offices. He has a partner that does the hospital visits; he doesn’t go to the hospital. Other doctors rely on technology and tests to make their diagnosis, but he relies on the patient to make his diagnosis, which is very rare in today’s society. He is also dead on, he does not rely on the computer and everything else, but he is accurate. He has the EKG equipment in his office, and he will draw blood in his office and send it out to the lab, but he just doesn’t rely on it, he is old school medicine basically. His office is always packed. I wouldn’t rate his office environment as excellent, just because it is so crowded, its small and I’m crammed in there. I absolutely would use his services again, and I have and would recommend him. He always is taking in more patients, and he accepts all insurance firms.

"Dr.
Pittsburgh Family Practice Doctors Provider Name Locked
is a caring professional. He gives thorough exams, reviews your history completely, listens carefully to you, and either helps you himself or refers you to someone who can help you. I have gone to him for 15 years, and I have been happy with every single appointment. His staff is very considerate and professional, and often helps me with small matters. As a family doctor, he is excellent!"

’t like that once they schedule the appointment, I

’t get in till later, but I think that is because he spends a lot of time with his patients. I would continue to use him in the future."
