Dr Engel was very nice and didn't treat you like a number. He made conversation and was very friendly and very knowledgeable. He talked in terms I could understand. I would definitely recommend him.

March 30, 2017

I have always had excellent care at Dr. Engels office. I have no complaints.

March 29, 2017

Dr. Engel is a wonderful physician and surgeon. He is very knowledgeable, compassionate, and generous in spending time with patients so that they understand what is going on. A cancer diagnosis is terrifying. In the two and a half years that I've been his patient, I have been amazed by the level of care he provides.

Dx breast cancer was explained in detail, what labs/procedures & referals were needed and why, what surgical procedure would be like

March 16, 2017

Dr. Engel & his staff are top shelf. extremely pleased with their care.

March 16, 2017

I have a long and complicated medical history, and having seen many doctors in Erie, I have little confidence in most of them. For anything more serious than a cold, I usually go to Pittsburgh. However, Dr. Engel is on par with Pittsburgh doctors, and I have a lot of confidence in him, his knowledge, and his skill. Even though the decision was made for me, I am still pleased with this site, this staff, Dr. Thomas (who did the biopsies), and Dr. Engel. It's refreshing to have some Magee quality here in Erie.

March 10, 2017

Dr. Engle was recommended to me after I had a breast biopsy and found out that I had breast cancer. This was a complete shock to me and I had many questions and concerns. Dr.Engle was not only very concerned with my well being he and his staff spent a great deal of time with me at my first appointment. Everyone in that office seems to be very caring and compassionate.

March 02, 2017

Dr Engel was very professional but still had a good sense of humor. He indicated that he would respect my wishes regarding blood transfusions, which I greatly appreciated. The explanation he gave of my condition and of the upcoming surgery was clear and made sense. I appreciated his overall manner and knowledge, and now have confidence in his abilities as a surgeon.

March 02, 2017

Dr Engel was my surgeon for lumpectomy 2 years ago and he show great concern for my last mammo, ultra sound and biopsy done recently.

February 15, 2017

everything was very good I felt that they all cared about me
