l had emergency colostomy. Dr Medich, Dr Watkins and their team were beyond amazing! came to Presbyterian in an ambulance from a hospital in Uniontown. from the minute I arrived I felt as if I was the only patient in the hospital.

David Medich is hands down the best colorectal surgeon in Pittsburgh - east coast even. the man saved my life , gave me the ability to live a fulfilling life without colitis or an ostomy. He speaks to me like I am his friend and not just another patient, his confidence in his abilities makes you confident as a patient in selecting him as your care provider . 10/10 fantastic human being, his staff is also top-notch.
