This was an initial visit. I was very impressed with the knowledge shown regarding my case. I learned more in one hour about my condition with Dr. Fassenella and his associate that I had previously with post surgery conversations with Cleveland Clinic (where my surgery was conducted).

Dr. Fasanella and his entire staff have always been the utmost best provider and staff I have ever dealt with.

The doctor explained how to take the medication in a way that would be more beneficial, something no other doctor has done, even though I have been on this medication for an extended period of time.

Finally Found a gastro that listened to me. Dr. Fasanella is a gem! He read my health history BEFORE coming in the exam room. I recently moved to Pittsburgh and have a more difficult diagnosis of hypersensitivity pnuemonitis and will be evaluated for lung transplant. Dr. Fasanella demonstrated his willingness to work with other medical specialists, something missing from my previous health care providers. Loved this guy!
