Dr. Arhendt is the best physician I have ever seen. I came in for a second opinion, and she was very thorough and very clear when she explained my condition and her recommendations, and why. She was also very compassionate in her delivery and took the time to talk with me. I never got a feeling that she was in a hurry to get on to her next patient.

Dr Arnhendt is wonderful and professional and her staff is as well. She is worth waiting for .

This was the first time meeting with Dr. Arendt. She was very nice and able to explain everything well and in a way we could comprehend.

I was so apprehensive about this visit, and not knowing the clinical style of Dr. Ahrendt, I was so relieved and happy after my consultation with her. She explained everything clearly, and did so in such a way that I didn't feel like just another number, I felt like a patient that belonged to her. I appreciate that more than you know. Thank you.

Dr. Ahrendt and her staff are the best. They know how to put the patient at ease even though the patient is dealing with difficult issues. They give easily understood and appropriate explanations regarding the problem.

My care with Dr. Ahrendt was superb last year when I needed surgery on my breast, and she and her staff continue to be absolutely top notch in both sensitivity, professional expertise, and everything else. UPMC is lucky to have her in their system.

September 03, 2015

Dr. Ahrendt took my situation very seriously and moved things through quicker than I could have imagined. I am so thankful to her and her staff for their help. I don't remember the woman's name who scheduled our CT scan that very day, but she was persistent and did everything she could to over come the issues UPMC was giving us about the authorization code to make sure we could do the scan that day instead of having to drive 2 hours home and 2 hours back the next day.

September 01, 2015

My husband and I both felt that the doctor had a very good bedside manner. This was our first visit to her office and we felt very comfortable even though the conversation was about my having cancer.

August 27, 2015

Excellent visit with this provider

July 30, 2015

Very good bedside manner and answered all of our questions/concerns.
