The doctor was able to finally come up with a possible diagnosis for my condition. I have seen 5 specialists before my visit with this doctor and they were unable to figure out my medical problem.

Dr. Stefko was very friendly and knowledgeable.

September 06, 2019

At initial consultation I was taken into exam room at 1:15 pm and not seen by Dr Stefko until 3:50 pm. She sat outside my exam room ( door open) eating snacks and chatting with staff. As I was aware this was the start of a new year for incoming residents, at time of surgery BEFORE SIGNING CONSENT, I specifically asked (witnessed by 2 UPMC employees if she does the entire surgery herself or allows residents to assist. She stated she does the entire surgery herself. As it turns out she lied. During my procedure I was awake at the end to allow for blinking of eyes for wound closure. Dr Stefko allowed a resident to close wounds despite her promise that she does the entire surgery herself. That evening, I developed a bleed at the wound closure at home. When I went for my post op visit, she failed to show up and no one in the office had any idea or response to why I was not notified that she would not be there, nor was the office even aware she was not coming in. If I had known she was not going to be there I would have rescheduled in order to see my surgeon post op. It was a terrible surgical experience and a terrible reflection on UPMC that a dr can be so dishonest to a patient at surgery tie and so disrespectful to not even care enough to see patient post op.

Excellent experience in this first appointment with Dr. Tonya Stefko and her staff. I am grateful for the care that they all provided.

August 27, 2019

I had a long wait for this visit. however, Dr. steak and staff explained why. i said I understood and that i hoped that i would get such care if it would be required at anytime

August 13, 2019

Both Dr. Stefko and her Resident provided reassurance and peace of mind regarding m eye issues. Dr. Stefko always coordinates/consults with my oncologist to determine next step of my treatment plan.

June 25, 2019

Dr Stefko if not only a excellent physician, she is caring and complete.

June 11, 2019

A very knowledgeable and caring provider. She always remembers me and talks about different parts of my care and treatment through our years together. Very,very talented in her field of medicine.

June 11, 2019

I can be awfully critical of care providers, especially after a long wait time or if I feel I've wasted my time because I felt unheard or not taken seriously. I have never left Dr. Stefko's office with a feeling of negativity like I have with providers in the past. They are courteous, punctual, and take the time to listen and explain things to your contentedness.
