Dr. Peitzman and his staff are excellent, knowledgeable and competent yet caring.

Dr. Peitzman is a role model for every physician. He is warm and kind, genuinely empathetic and clinically exceptional. I am a UPMC physician and can tell you that the UPMC culture of excellence and the tacit understanding within the UPMC system that no matter what it takes, you do the right thing for the patient, can be traced back to a few physicians. One of those physicians is Dr. Andrew Peitzman.
