Dr. McGough was the consummate professional and addressed my significant concerns with compassion and clarity. I felt more positive and informed than I have in months.

Dr. Richard Mcgough is a titan of his industry and is equipping future medical leaders with the skills they need to care for many generations. Residents that are under him should be grateful to be his understudy and learn everything they can from him.

I really like Dr. McGough. He is relatable and a "real guy". I have had other doctors who never addressed the patient just the disease/injury. He does not do this.

May 06, 2019

They don't come any better than Dr. McGough. He's a very intelligent man, yet explains things in a way that are very easy to understand. His demeanor and attitude are positive and comforting. Due to the UPMC and HighMark breakup I will no longer be able to see Dr. McGough. What a shame for me and others.

I see two wonderful physicians in this department, Dr. Brian Klatt and Dr. Richard McGough and have referred them both to a great deal of my friends and family.
