When I was admitted to the ER, Dr. Wecht was responsive and the staff at UPMC Presby, especially the nurses in my unit, were very attentive and kind. Thank you!

Dr. Wecht was fantastic and provided the help I needed

I have been to 3 different doctors for the last 2 months and I can say that Dr. Daniel W. and staff treated me so well and so respectfully and took time with me and understood my concerns regarding my back pain and disc diagnosis. He also followed up with me about me getting my x rays and was very prompt and calling me and giving me my results! I went to one doctor in the South Hills and they treated me like a number and I was out in 5 minutes and they did not seem like they showed any compassion or care in regards to me and my well being and never followed up with me about anything and only cared about me getting surgery. I am so glad I got a second opinion and want to THANK UPMC Neurosurgery and the staff at Dr. Daniel Wecht !!
