The only down side of the appointment was that it took much longer than I thought it would. It took 1 hour and 45 minutes from the time of my appointment until the time I was done. The dr was great and so where the nurse and PA.

I was amazed that I was able to be seen so quickly. I really appreciate the fact that I was told ahead of time that I would need to wait awhile while I was at the office

Dr. Amsnkulor is a highly impressive and competent surgeon with a great 'bed side' manner, and who instills immediate confidence in his patients.

Two years ago, Dr. Amankulor and the medical team at UPMC saved my life. Today, their monitoring and treatment is providing me quality time that otherwise I would not experience. I don't have the words to express my feelings.
