Dr. Staffen is always very concerned and always checks for any abnormality concerning my heart and circulation. Adjusts medication for my heart and blood pressure as needed.

I believe Dr Staffen is the only Dr. that I see ,on a regular basis, who has my well being in mind when I see him. I only wish there were more UPMC Dr.'s in this area( Latrobe Pa ) that would see patients as your regular Family Dr. I would switch Family Dr.'s immediately!
