Took his time explaining medical procedures he recommended I should do.

i waited 90 minutes after the appointment time to spend less than 5 minutes with the doctor and he merely said that was the way of life at UPMC. Rude and obviously showed no concern for my time and he was the center of the universe. Never go back to him.

i was not hospitalized. i was seen at the doctor's office. Doctor's did not spend much time with you. they were not very informative and this was an issue that they input and opinion would have been appreciated. i know rhey are busy, but they don't made you feel like they really care about your well-being, basically I am just a number.

2 weeks ago I had an appointment with this provider, I waited in the waiting room 60 minutes past my appointment time and was told that it would be another 15 min, until I made it into the assessment room, and that there could be another wait from there. I took time off of work to go to this appointment and was being told that it would most likely be a total of 90-100 minute wait for the appointment. They told me that I could reschedule but that the wait for another appointment would be a few weeks. This appointment this week I was a 7:30am appointment but not seen until 8am. this is ridiculous.

I had a brief visit with Dr. Spiess. He was attentive and knowledgeable and took care of me in a timely manner. His PA was extremely helpful as well.
