Susan Challinor is one of the finest doctors I have ever known. I feel that she cares about me and my health and I would choose her over any specialist in her field. She knows her stuff.

The doctor is very caring and had outlined a clear path to changes to my diseases. She has called after hours to ensure meds were helping overall in the past. Before the doctor diagnosis with this illnesses, I have seen numerous docs (even at UPMC) with no outcome or path forward, she has provided me with a overall diagnosis, path forward, and is "caring". She has saved my life to where I can now start to live again!
