good visit I really like my doctor

Dr. McGough shows the patient their x rays and explains things in a way that is easy to understand. He takes the time to explain what may have been a misconception by other people in the medical team and gives the reasons why. He is one of the few doctor's offices that I leave not feeling confused about what has happened and what will or will not happen.

Dr. McGough is the best physician I've ever seen at UPMC. He performed a very risky and big surgery on me almost 9 years ago after which he was the only physician tocheck on me in the hospital all the 9 days I was I. there. He even came in on his day off! I can't say enough good things about Dr. McGough. He's a true professional.

the best Doctor ever... compassionately, caring, listens to you and directly talks to you then to your family. I would always trust in his care and judgement about my condition. I absolute adore this man. not only is he a brilliant Dr and surgeon, he actually really cares about me as a patient. you don't often fine that anymore in this crazy rush rush world.
