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.

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.

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.

I loved Dr. Gretchen Ahrendt. I was so nervous, but talking with Dr. Ahrendt, she made me feel at ease and comfortable. She took her time explaining everything to me. I feel so good that she will be my surgeon. I also appreciated the time that Keri DeWitt spent with me. She was also caring and helpful. Thank You!!

This was a single visit to discuss surgery for breast cancer. Both the previous experiences with the radiologist confirming the cancer and the visit with Dr. Ahrendt who will do the surgery to remove the breasts were excellent. I was carefully informed of all aspects of the diagnosis and surgical expectations.

June 18, 2015

This was my first visit she was recommended by 2 of my other drs. I was pleased with her and do have faith that she will succeed in helping me.

June 11, 2015

My surgery was very successful, with excellent recovery, well-healed scar, which is hardly noticeable. I attribute my good surgical experience to Dr. Ahrendt's skill. She has more than met all my expectations in regards to her knowledge of every aspect of breast cancer. She has made me feel very comfortable.
