Doctor Towers is always very kind person. Also she is very thorough. She really cares about her patients.

September 28, 2016

This was my first visit with Dr. Towers. She was wonderful. She listened attentively to my questions and was through in her answers. She gave me good advice and suggestions for my continuing good health. I've never had a health provider who took such a large amount of time with me. It was very comforting and reassuring.

September 26, 2016

Dr. Towers is the first doctor that made me feel as though concern for my medical issues were important to her. To say I am surprised is an understatement. In the period of time that I have visited medical professionals I have never been treated with such dignity, she is an "Angel", and UPMC is extremely fortunate to have such a wonderful Doctor on staff.

I don't think there is a better doctor around. Dr. Towers cares about your overall care.
