Amer H Zureikat performed the Whipple surgery on me in January 2017 after he diagnosed me with pancreatic cancer. Amer H Zureikat is a true family oriented surgeon who always has been kind to me and my wife who had to care for me during the procedure and post chemotherapy. I can't express my respect and gratitude to him and for all of his staff for saving my life. I am cancer free after many months of follow up visits to UPMC Hillman Center. I'm glad that he has been selected as Director of Pancreatic cancer at UPMC. He has absolutely deserved this promotion. I'm glad to know that others victims of pancreatic cancer have Amer H Zureikat as a resource to help them as has done for me.

I was impressed that he took as much time as I wanted him to ..letting me ask all my questions

I seem to notice The DDC has grown tremendously in the last year and I am sure it has been a direct result of Dr Zureikat and his team. I feel so confident in the quality of the care I have and will receive .

August 17, 2018

This was the first time my wife and I met with Dr. Zureikat. Very happy with the transition from Dr. Zeh to Dr. Zureikat.

August 15, 2018

1st visit to that Dept to see Dr Zuricat, 1st time seeing him for him to give me the results of my MRI. I was there from 10:50 am to 2:45pm. seems once he left the room and told me the staff would be back to give me my next appt date, they forgot I was still there. This was unacceptable. I'm angry!!!!!!!!!!!

August 08, 2018

Excellent as usual. Former patient of Dr. Zeh's

August 08, 2018

45 minutes late for the appointment. 90 minutes in the cold exam room ! 2 minutes with the Doctor !!!

August 08, 2018

After waiting 2 hours past my appointment time, he spent approximately 3 minutes with me. He also told me information that he couldn't confirm and said that I would receive a phone call the next day to confirm or dismiss his suspicions. it is now going on three days and no phone call yet.
