not seen timely. 2hrs late. 11am appt but not seen until after one. Spent 1h in the waiting room and 1h in the exam room before being seen. No staff checked on us or explained the delay.

THIS PROVIDER NEEDS TO RUN ON TIME. THE WAIT IN THE EXAM ROOM IS ANYWHERE FROM 1 HOUR TO 2 HOURS. THIS IS AN ALL DAY EVENT. MY DAUGHTER THEN MISSES AT LEAST HALF DAY OF SCHOOL OR MORE. I LIKE THIS PROVIDER, BUT THE WAIT MAKES ME WANT TO FIND ANOTHER PROVIDER.

Dr. Witchel is a fabulous Doctor. She really listens to what you have to say and genuinely really cares....

We arrived on time for the appointment. Went to the the check in desk, we were told we'd get a text message when it was our turn to register - this never happened. Waited for over 15 min. Decided to go directly to the doctor's reception area to check in. Waited for over 90 minutes to see the doctor. So, in total, we were there for 2 hours. I think the doctor is great, but the wait time is ridiculous. My son missed more than a half of a day of school for a 15 minute appointment. Totally unacceptable. I'm happy with Dr. Witchel, but something has to be done. We wait for longer than 45 minutes every time we have an appointment.

Dr. Witchel was very helpful in navigating my concerns about my transition and in college. She was very knowledgable about trans issues in Pittsburgh and great at helping me navigate through all of the resources available in Pittsburgh.

The last two visits we had wait times 30-45 minutes or more.

Dr. Witchel is not only very knowledgable but a very caring and kind physician. We are very fortunate to have her as the doctor for our three girls. She has provided us with excellent medical care over the years often going above and beyond.
