it was all good

Dr. Freidlander and staff have been most helpful during the difficult time of brain surgery and followup care for my aneuryism and the complication of electrolyte imbalance. I met many wonderful people during my stays in UPMC's Presby. The doctors & nurses on the floors and emergency room were great!!!
