It was my yearly exam and it was a good experience.

September 07, 2017

This was an initial office visit for my son, as we recently moved to Erie and needed to establish our family with a local provider. All of the staff - Jennifer, Megan, and Dr. Gade - were very open and personable, and made it easy for my son to feel relaxed and safe with them.

Dr. Grade always listens to what I have to say and answers any questions I have and doesn't act in a hurry to get rid of me.

As usual Dr Gade and the staff at Pinecrest Family Practice were very professional, attentive and friendly.

I never have anything bad to say about Dr. Gade or his staff. This is why I choose UPMC Hamot for my medical needs.
