Dr. Ray was very comforting at a stressful time for me. Not only was she worried about my physical health but she was concerned about my emotional health as well. She did not rush me out of the office and was very thorough with her referral to outside specialists.

My PCP, Dr. Ray is an outstanding doctor. I have been with her for many years and she knows my history, is always prepared for every visit, always listens to me, makes me feel comfortable, answers all my questions and concerns, explains everything to me, lets me be a part of my health care and does not rush me like my experience with some doctors who can't wait to get on to the next patient. She is a valuable asset to UPMC.
