very good experience. Dr was very interested and concerned about my current situation

October 26, 2017

very good employees

October 05, 2017

The front office and the medical staff have always been attentive, personable, concerned and helpful. We are moving out of state on 10/31/17 and I wish I had more time to be under the care of Dr. Wasan.

October 05, 2017

I have always had good interactions with Dr.Wasan. I am a complicated chronic pain patient and no other Dr. has approached my problems like he has. He actually listens to what i say is going on with my body. Upon discussing that we decide what is the best course of treatment.I just told him at my last visit how down to earth he is not condescending like many doctors he's real. And yes I had to wait a little longer than usual but I know the extra time he had to give someone else I would be given the same privilege.

September 21, 2017

My care has been excellent with Dr. Wasan and Megan in OT. The question regarding prescription medications marked usually reflects my primary care MD in Brockway, not anyone in the UPMC system. As a board certified physician myself I can't imagine better care or a more integrated system.

September 21, 2017

I feel like the doctor is trying to ween me off my meds too fast

August 29, 2017

He did not help me with my pain at all and seemed to think it was related to other issues after openly saying that I "clearly have none issues in my lower spine. Than he gave me a anti-inflammatory pill which my insurance did not cover and the pharmacy sent it back to his office and I have heard nothing since.

August 24, 2017

DR. Wasan always takes the time to speak with me and ask me if there is anything I want to talk about. I really appreciate that about my care.

July 27, 2017

I got to see dr wasan for literally 2 minutes in which the entire time he spoke. I had to give my history to a different doctor and then she went and told him. I did not like that at all. I think it's important for me to be able to directly talk to the doctor handling my case about my medical history. so I did not get any chance to talk to dr wasan about my history (even though that is something I put in the pre-appointment survey). I really just wanted him to be able to hear me talk about my history and describe it instead of someone else second handedly telling him my history.

This cre provider really listens to me and takes into consideration the risk/benefit factors, thinks carefully about them and discusses them with me. I f he thinks there may be some benefit he may do a small trial to see if the medicine works or not before writing a full script, I think he is really great and I look forward to my visits with this care provider and his team
