My experience with the UPMC Headache Center was very positive. This was my first visit and I was not sure what to expect. The receptionist and office staff were very friendly and professional. The atmosphere of the office was very considerate of people suffering from headaches. We first met with Sydney who is a resident with Dr. Kaniecki. She was compassionate, thorough, and very knowledgeable in her field. She made me feel less anxious and that she truly cared about my condition. Dr. Kaniecki took his time to explain as well as educate my husband and myself about what was happening with me. He gave me confidence that my headaches will be taken care of, I have not felt this way with any other doctor my entire life. It is easy to see how intelligent Dr. Kaniecki is and his passion for helping others manage their headache pain. I felt blessed to have finally met a doctor who I believe will be able to help me.

Dr. Kaniecki has always treated me with absolute complete respect. He does not talk down to me, but always explains everything in the full extent so I can understand. I always feel like my visits are beneficial to bettering my health. He is kind, well-spoken, and professional. I honestly have zero complaints about his service!

Dr. Kaniecki is THE BEST headache doctor in the area. I recommend him any time I talk to people suffering from migraines. I also really appreciate that his waiting room has low lights and no noise (NO TV!!!). He truly "gets" what it is like to be a migraine sufferer. Thank you Dr. K!
