I was completely satisfied with my visit with Dr. March. I had gone into the appointment with some anxiety that it wouldn't be as helpful as I wanted it to be, but she was great. I'm feeling really optimistic about my care plan and that I'll have the support I need to reach my goals.

This was my first visit with Dr. March. I was totally satisfied with her attention to my care, her sensitivity to me as an individual, and her expertise. In my 68 years of life I've interacted with many medical practitioners and she is among the best.

Dr. March was extremely knowledgable and helpful for my physical and emotional issues stemming from weight problems. I am fortunate to have found her, as suggested by my primary care physician. She is a great asset to UPMC and to me.

UPMC really should consider giving this Doctor a substantial raise. As a business man, I would definitely NOT desire this woman to be taken from me via competition or personal desideratumsI know, directly & personally, how many patents she has gotten to go to UPMC AND in particular Solono & Associates. ALL because of her phenomenal work ethics, caring and professionalism.FACTI speak the Truth. What you believe is your business
