Dr Staffen is a doctor who listens and explains things so I could understand the goals for my health. He is for real and not a pill pusher like so many others are today.

I am exceptionally pleased with Dr. Robert Staffen and the care I have received from him and his staff for the past 4 years. I was very satisfied with the additional time that he spent with me on my last visit explaining and answering my many questions about the heart procedure which I received at UPMC East earlier this month.
