Dr Courcoulas is a very compassionate, caring, knowledgeable provider. Her patient's care and well being are her main concern, and UPMC is very fortunate to have her as a doctor. Her expertise is outstanding, and my husband and I have the highest regard, and trust for her and her staff. She is a wonderful Director.
