Dr. Towers is my new PCP. I have never been so impressed with a doctor before. She has all the characteristics that one would wish to find in a doctor. She had extensive knowledge of my medical history and demonstrated a unprecedented genuine caring attitude. Her brilliant, vast array of information, resources and knowledge was so impressive that I actually felt blessed and grateful to become her patient. I'm an old chick so I've met more doctors than I'd like to admit and I have a rare condition that has baffled many a doctor; but Dr. Towers is an amazing doctor that makes me feel that I might truly be able to have a better quality of life. UPMC is very lucky to have her as am I. Never met anyone better in the medical field in all my many
