This office is great and very responsive to your needs.

This was my first appointment that I had with Dr. Himm. I had a gyne exam from her and found her to be very professional and gentle. If my pcp can not see me on a day I request, I would request Dr Himm.

Extremely satisfied to have Dr. Himm as my new Family Doctor..

October 02, 2015

Dr. Himm is an expert I depend on to help me make decisions for my care. She makes me feel like I am her only patient, her priority when she is in the room. I appreciate her respect for my concerns. We develop a plan together by the time I leave the office. She is quick to reply to my questions on my health tracker site. I travel to see her outside of my community because of her expertise, bedside manner, and willingness to work with me to achieve goals in my care.

Dr. Himm is ALWAYS available. She responds to e-mails quickly and is the epitome of what any PCP should be. She sits down and talks with you. She is so respectful and caring. I walk in with concerns and walk out knowing she cares. She made me feel so much better when I left.

Dr. Himm is excellent. She is very intelligent and has fantastic people skills.

September 14, 2015

I needed a new PCP because mine had moved out of state. I chose Dr. Himm based on convenience of the location but believe I hit the jackpot. She is wonderful! She took lots of time with me on my first visit and addressed all concerns. I would recommend her to anyone. Additionally, my test results were posted the very next day with her personal comments that I could conveniently log in to see. I am thankful that I live in a city where I can get such phenomenal care! Thank you UPMC!!
