Dr. Bigley treated my daughter last fall and we were extremely satisfied. That is why I chose him for my situation.

Dr Bigley is wonderful. He took the time to look at my previous history, sat and talked with me, listened, answered questions. I wasn't just a number. I appreciate that so much. AND what he has prescribed me to do and take, is working! After two years of fighting kidney stones, thank God!!

I had an urgent need to see an urologist. I saw the Doctor's rating on a webb site, knowing I wanted to use UPMC. I had a great experience with the Doctor. He made the visit easy with his bedside manner being engaging and forthright with all information. He is one of the best Doctors I've ever seen. What a great guy. And so was his staff.

Good, clear analysis of my medical problem and clear description of recommended corrective actions. No bad experiences.

I was very pleased with my visit Dr. Joel Bigley. I came away from my appointment wishing that I had sought a "second opinion " sooner that perhaps everything -additional test, appointments, etc. - would be done and I would feel more comfortable, the long trips would be behind me.
