Finally Found a gastro that listened to me. Dr. Fasanella is a gem! He read my health history BEFORE coming in the exam room. I recently moved to Pittsburgh and have a more difficult diagnosis of hypersensitivity pnuemonitis and will be evaluated for lung transplant. Dr. Fasanella demonstrated his willingness to work with other medical specialists, something missing from my previous health care providers. Loved this guy!

Dr. Fasanella is always on time for his appointments and stays as long as needed to answer any questions or concerns I might have concerning my condition. He never hurries the appointment and is always concerned with me as a patient.

March 10, 2017

I have no complaints about Dr. Fasanella or the staff.
