Dr. Passero is an exceptional Dr. Did "detectiive work" to find the cause of my problem. He is always well prepared, never rushed, and he makes me feel at ease. He answers my questions and makes sure I understand the answers.

It took nearly 30 mins before I was seen. I arrived 15 minutes early to my appointment I was on time. however... 30 minutes late? I was ready to walk out. I take punctuality very seriously.

Over the past 5 years that I have been seeing Dr. Passero, he has been wonderful to have as a doctor. The only reason for a couple of negative remarks would be about needing to transition to another doctor because of UPMC and HighMark making it difficult to continue on as we will be out of network soon and as of now I have to pay 20% if I continue to use UPMC as a source of care. This is not fair to patients and I wonder if either UPMC or HighMark actually care about a person's health or is this driven by money.
