I am a ten year brain tumor survivor and grateful every day for the caliber of care at UPMC. From my MRI appointment check in receptionist who treated me with kindness and compassion, to Joel who made me feel like family during the MRI, and finally my visit with Dr. Amankulor who always makes me feel like I am the only patient he has, thank you. My whole family was welcomed and made to feel like we are family to everyone there at UPMC. I find myself marveling at the level of humanity with everyone who works there- yes it's your job, but you've made it a loving environment. Well done.

Waited 1 1/2 hours to see the doctor. Had already checked in on the 3rd floor to receive a chemo treatment at 10:00. Went to 11:00 doctor appointment on 2nd floor at 10:30 hoping to get back to the 3rd floor for treatment as soon as possible. Did not see doctor until 12:30, so actually waited for two hours. Had informed receptionist of situation.
