Dr. William Follansbee is an outstanding cardiologist. I have known him for many years as he took care of both of my parents, saved my dad's life and saved mine several times. He is always top notch in the professional patient care he provides and has been there for my entire family, including my daughter when I was having open heart surgery last year. This highly distinguished and outstanding cardiologist gives UPMC the reputation of being a first-class healthcare provider who I always recommend to family, friends and colleagues.

Dr. Follansbee is the finest doctor I have ever dealt with, and I have dealt with a myriad of doctors. He is vigilant in caring for me and ensuring that I have the best quality of life possible. He is encouraging and quite simply a great person, as well. I am grateful to be seen and followed by such a totally competent and devoted physician.

dr did his own typing to finalize the take home report and spoke it as he typed so I know what he was reporting and I could question him and it saved time not having to wait for others to complete

I wouldn't have any other physician for my cardiology care. he is THE BEST

Both Dr. Follansbee and his nurse, Tara, earned my respect during this, my first visit with them, and get my highest recommendation. There is no need to garnish that statement.
