very excellent care. I would certainly recomend him. he logically and empatheticly explained his course of medical action and opted to rule out extraneous possibilities in treatment and diagnosis

Dr A and his RN and physicians assistant were caring, personable and genuinely interested in my condition and progress. My entire experience at Upmc and Dr A's crew have been excellent since day one!

Dr. A. is an outstanding, knowledgeable, and compassionate neurosurgeon. Of course, my disease (brain cancer) is extremely difficult for him to combat & treat. It would be wonderful if he could actually beat my cancer!
