Everyone - The Entire Staff Helped Take Away A Lot Of My Anxiety About The Visit

January 30, 2017

Dr. Ward is great. Very caring for the children

January 23, 2017

We waited over an hour to be taken back for the appointment, then had to wait another 1/2 hour for the doctor to see her. He was brusque to the point of rude and uncaring. Overall, we (and I stress "we" because my 9 year old daughter could very much tell the care was poor) left there feeling completely unsatisfied that she was treated as a person that mattered. It felt like we were bothering him and wasting his time. We are all busy people, with things to do. She needed a walking boot for a fracture and a physician's excuse from gym. I couldn't get that from the PCP and I couldn't get that from the ER. I will be sure never to bother this physician or this location ever again. We will not be returning for a follow up or ever returning with any of my 3 children again.

I appreciated the whole staff for helping us though a emotional scare. The Dr and his nurse were extremely helpful.

I understand the doc is a surgeon however with that said patients should be made aware when the doctor is running over an hour behind. I was pretty well snapped and toldit's to be expected, however when patients are driving an hr to see this provider we need to be in the loop. I also felt it was unnecessary that the doctor moved my daughter's arm around knowing it was broken and we had questionable X-rays from quick care and they never repeated the X-rays. I felt he spoke down to us. I will never see him again and will refer all friends and family else where.

I felt Dr. Ward could have directed his conversation toward my son since he is 15 (almost 16). Also show some warmth & caring. Dr. Ward was knowledgeable & did answer questions.

December 27, 2016

has a somewhat curt personality.

December 20, 2016

We drove over an hour for this appointment. Not only was he 20+ minutes late, he one spent two minutes with my daughter. So we drove over an hour for a late appointment with a doctor that did not spend any time with my child and seemed bothered that he even had to come into the room. I will not have his see my children again! And if my child continues to have this problem, he did not seem to even care to find out what may be wrong!

December 20, 2016

The care my son had was world class and a credit to UPMC.

December 20, 2016

great!
