I was referred to Dr. Ahrendt by Lynne Gerthoffer, RN at the UPMC Passavant Cancer Center to look at the xrays, scans and blood work for the abdominal issues I am having. He was superb, as was his fellow Filip Bednar who did the initial discussion. My was was in attendance and we are completely satisfied in his recommendation to do surgery. Surgery is not always the best option however, Dr. Ahrendt made me feel comfortable with what he plans to do. For us, this was a good experience.

During a recent appointment with Dr. David Geller, he suggested that I consult with Dr.Ahrendt concerning a possible procedure. Since we. are from Indiana, Pa., we faced the possibility of waiting a week or so and having to make another trip to Pittsburgh. Dr. Ahrendt graciously agreed to see us while we were at Passavant. He was excellent in every respect and provided quality advice and care. UPMC is fortunate indeed to have such a caring surgeon on their staff. Dr. Ahrendt is truly A number 1.
