Dr. Risbano was very cordial, and apologized for not getting into the room as quickly as usual because there was a problem with another patient. I have pulmonary hypertension which is linked to an autoimmune disorder and he was very knowledgable and concerned about the link between the two.

I always have a very positive experience with my health care provider. He not only addresses my diagnoses, but strives to meet personal needs, asking how I AM. He makes me feel comfortable and confident in the desired health plan determined for me at this time.

UPMC feels like family to me. They recognize my husband and me and are all very friendly and genuinely concern about what is going on with me. Nurse La Vaughn is the Bomb she keeps me laughing, the ladies in the PFT rooms are very friendly and professional, and Dr. Risbano is a great doctor. Of course the ladies at the desk for check-in and check-out are very helpful.
