The doctor is thorough and caring and willing to try things. He will not minimize symptoms. He will test or refer or prescribe if necessary and will go the extra mile with insurance companies.

I always have good experiences when I go there.

Dr. Christian Dudenhoefer is the best doctor I have ever been to. He has been my doctor now for about 37 years. He is very knowledgeable about all of my medical issues and has always treated them successfully. I always feel that I am in excellent care when I see him. I have every confidence in his medical experience and abilities. He always addresses all of my concerns and is never in a hurry.I think that he should receive the Physician of the Year award. It is very comforting to know that my health is in is excellent care.

My husband and I both feel that Dr Christian Dudenhoefer is the most intelligent, most common-sense, nicest doctor we have ever had. We're so glad we didn't have to lose him in that recent fiasco with Allegheny/UPMC.
