We love Dr. McCandless. We are worried that he is getting to an age when he might consider retirement This would make us very sad.

Davids the best there is, I have been going to one of the McCandless doctors since 1965 and would not think about using anyone else for my pcp my entire family including my mother went to them. If UPMC had more like David we wouldn't have to go to so many specialist outside the group (9)

Dr. McCandless is a very good doctor. he listens to everything I say and always makes me feel welcomed and comfortable. He is always happy and helps any way he can. I was also impressed he knew alot about my health and not just on computer screen he knew before he even logged in. He is very compassionate.
