I really appreciated the time that Dr. Diego spent explaining my illness and treatment.

January 05, 2016

Dr. Diego was extremely informative about my condition and was able to calm my fears. She gave me options I had never considered and will be an important part of my procedure from here on out.

December 31, 2015

Dr. Diego was an awesome doctor. I would recommend her to anyone. My mother previously had her for surgery to remove breast cancer and were very impressed with the entire process. Great job!

December 29, 2015

I was extremely pleased during my consultation with Dr. Diego. She was very sweet and friendly and explained everything so clearly. She made me feel relieved when I left her office that we had a good plan in place to begin moving forward with my care.

Dr. Deigo is a very good physician, referred by a family member, overall good experience

November 19, 2015

This was my first experience with Dr. Diego, and I was very pleased with the whole appointment. She is terrific! She thought that she kept me waiting too long (I did not complain or find the wait time objectionable) and apologized profusely. Then, she took the time to thoroughly go over my file and address the situation that brought me in to see her. She performed an exam, then allowed me to dress while she went to the waiting room to bring my husband back in for the discussion. As my husband said, she was a great salesperson - she spoke effectively and confidently about my condition and the possible courses of action. She did a great job of explaining everything in simple terms, but without talking down to us. We both loved her and feel completely comfortable with her. I wish that she could be my PCP and not just my breast surgeon!

November 12, 2015

I was very impressed with Dr Diego and her staff.

November 12, 2015

My first visit w/Dr. Diego was absolute perfection from arrival until my surgery was scheduled. She's extremely thorough and sensitive.

November 05, 2015

Dr. Diego and all staff at UPMC have been wonderful from my diagnosis with breast cancer up to this point in my treatment. I couldn't have asked for better medical care, communication, kindness and concern. Everything moved at a rapid rate and was taken care of for me to ease the burden of stress for me and made a difficult situation as easy as it could be under the circumstances. I would suggest all the doctors and staff at Magee to anyone diagnosed with breast cancer.

October 29, 2015

Dr. Diego spent almost an hour with me explaining my diagnosis and answering my questions. She was very reassuring and made me feel very comfortable. Very easy to talk to about a very scary time in my life.
