I felt like Vicki was very ... abrasive. I sat waiting in the room for 40 minutes and she seemed irritated with me. I'm a new patient. Not sure if this Weight Loss program was a good idea. I need support.

June 26, 2018

I appreciated Dr March's willingness to supervise me in the weight loss program that I started 4 months before I saw her (available appointments were far in the future when I was first referred). She demonstrated familiarity with the program I was following, acknowledged that it was working well for me and made suggestions about how to use the program properly to maintain my weight. She adjusted relevant meds and, as a cancer patient, I feel comfortable being in her care relative to me maintaining a healthy weight.

dr March is very conscientious and does not hesitate to tell me things I need to know but may not want to hear.

Vicki March was the best

the best

Dr. March is one of the best. it's just a shame the UPMC Healthplan does not support her methods by covering the medicines she prescribed. I can't believe our own healthplan over rides decisions by our world class and "best of the best" physicians.

Dr. March is has been incredible, very informative and very supportive of my goals. Look forward to a follow-up visit in time, and would refer anyone to her for a similar need.

May 29, 2018

the doctor was very dry and I she walked out the door she rolled her eyes in the back of her head like I was some loser or something I don't think it's very professional

Dr March was AMAZING. She was extremely thorough and knowledgeable. she gave me options concerning my health care and helped me make decisions that were best for my situation. she was well versed Ono edits management. I have found no other PCP who took the time to discuss my concerns and my history. On this annual physical visit she encouraged me to see a dermatologist because of skin damage she observed. I've NEVER had a doctor address this important issue. I was extremely impressed the care she provided.
