Good Experience

October 21, 2016

I absolutely love my Doctors and staff . I would never want to leave , and have to go somewhere else for my care. I work in a hospital and have for 27 years. I love my local hospital, but I am highly impressed with how compassionate and professional your staff and Dr.s are. I never have to wait long to get in. My questions are always answered. LOVE, LOVE LOVE UPMC.

Was very pleased with information received during visit. Doctor was excellent in presenting answers needed by me, the patient. Asked to have Dr. Sood for my next scheduled visit.

I was initially disappointed to find out that I would not be seeing my coordinator, but left very happy that I had been seen by Dr. Sood. It was a wonderful visit and I appreciated very much the time and care that he provided.
