Dr. Fosanella was wonderful- listened, explained, together we covered my medical history. Many of these questions are not relevant, as this was my first visit with him and this department at UPMC. never felt like I was being rushed out the door. We concurred on testing, and even today, his staff is very timely in returning messages regarding further testing, explanations, etc. Thank you!

I was especially glad to have a good one-on-one with Dr. Fassenella. Previous times I spoke also with another doctor. By Dr. Fassenella spending longer with me it is giving me a better opportunity for me go get to know my doctor better and for him to get to know me, too. Thanks

Dr. Fasanella and his team are the greatest providers I have ever experienced. I am grateful for both him and his team and all the time and experience they have shared with me over the years. I would never go anywhere else.

My first meeting with Dr.Fasanella was very positive. He did lab work and prescribed new medication which I hope will reduce some of my health problems.
