0ne of the most trusted doctors I ever had.
Lee Ann Lope is excellant
Lee Ann Lope will truly be missed. She is not only a fantastic surgeon, but she is kind and most compassionate.
Dr. Lope was amazing with our son! So sad that she will be leaving. She was caring, informative, and took great care of my son. I called after hours and she personally gave me a phone call within a half hour of my initial call!
It shouldn't take 2 hrs from start to finish to have a routine eye exam done. We were taken back to the exam room rater quickly, but after the dilation drops were put in daughter's eyes, we waited for 30 minutes for Dr to return to do the last 5-10min check. The waiting room was so crowded when we arrived that the receptionist was handing out snacks to keep people happy. Something's very wrong with that for an eye center. I think they must be double or triple booking patients.
Dr. Lope is an amazing doctor. She has cared for my son like he was her own and really treats us like family.
Dr. Lope is AMAZING!!! She is so kind hearted and gives the children all of her attention and dedication! Ee are truly going to miss her so much when she leaves! My daughter cried when she found out she won't get to see her doctor anymore.
Dr Lope didn't really address her thoughts about what actions should be taken. she asked if we would be open to surgery but didn't explain if she thought that would be a good option. Basically just looked at a lot of things and said see you in 2 months. she also didn't have previous records from a while a ago which made the visit difficult. I spent most of my day there and didn't feel like much was accomplished. very disappointing.
I am impressed with Dr. Lope's thorough approach
the wait time was unacceptable
We have been seeing Dr Lope since my son was 3 months old and he is now 6.5 years old. She has always been nothing but wonderful with him. We are extremely sad to see her leave Children's and are hopeful that we will continue to have wonderful experiences with the eye clinic
wait time was crazy long then we sat in the room even longer.. to long for a child to sit especially when he is in the car for over an hour travel time
We've been seeing Dr. Lope since 2012, and we have been incredibly blessed with her care. Not only is she very skilled, but she is kind and compassionate, and works very well with my son.
very good dr to communicate and very friendly and helpfull
I had to wait unnecessarily long. I grew very stressed out and irritated. I had a 10:20 a.m. appointment and I actually saw the doctor at about 11:30. She is an outstanding doctor, but there is no excuse for this kind of lengthy wait.
could not have been any better
The wait time seems to always be long, never within 15 minutes of the appointment.
all is good
Dr Lope is the most compassionate and understanding doctor I have had since I was diagnosed with thyroid eye disease.
The worst part is the amount of time waiting to see doctor. I understand if you need drops it takes a while for them to work, but we didn't require drops and we were there for a very long time.
Dr. Lope is very professional, yet she is also so personable. She makes me feel as though I'm an equal, not someone below her. In other words, she does not look down her nose at me. She is so booked and I had to wait four months to see her, then another four months to be scheduled for surgery to correct double vision, but that's not her fault.
the care we receive at this office is always excellent however the wait times are unbearable. We were in the office for nearly 3 hours but only spent a total of 20 minutes with the physicians.
Excellent doctor and staff. However, appointment took over 2 hours.
The wait time was way to long. My son was very restless by the time we saw the doctor. We saw 2 other people first who did some tests, and then had to wait a long time. Wait time needs to get corrected.
I was referred to Dr. Lope by Dr. Yu who is associated with UPMC and am very happy with both Physicians. Knowledge, courtesy, professionalism and caring are very important and both exude it very well. Am very happy to be dealing with both/
Dr. Lope provided excellent care in a friendly comprehensive manner. Glad that she is our Ophthalmologist.
The doctor and staff are always very kind and helpful with my son. The only complaint I ever have is the length of the visits; however, I know that with children, and the type of testing that is done, it often requires a long time.
Dr. Lope is a great doctor....I trust her judgement completely.....my procedure went very smoothly and the nursing staff was kind and professional.
my son is 4 years old and autistic the whole staff is very patient with him. Dr Lope is amazing with him!!
The wait time was ridiculous for our appointment. our appt was at 2:30, we waited in a hallway waiting room until 3:30 before Doctor came in. I understand sometimes things get alittle behind but this has been the wait time at almost every appointment . it is extrmemely hard to even get an appointment with Dr Lope, so I feel when I do come in we should not have to wait this long.
i have been very happy with UPMC overall care!
everything was quicker than expected which was great because I live 2 hours away. Friendly and loved it.
I had the best of care while having my surgery and all office visits.
very good experience
overall my experience with my visit at office visitwas fair,dr. seemed to be in a rush ,not really sensitive to how she came off a little, aloof
first time seeing this doctor--she was great!
Dr. Lope was absolutely amazing with my son. she treated him as if he were her own. she was very patient and extremely thorough.
Dr. Lope informed us of a variety of options, made it clear that we didn't have to make a decision "in the moment", and seemed respectful of my concerns and questions.
always happy with the care provided. always unhappy with the wait time. it ever fails that we spent at least an hour waiting to be seen
It was a first time visit, and it was a great experience. Everyone was very kind and genuine. The time spent with us was exceptional! definitely will recommend!
very helpful staff and very nice to talk to.
I just feel that appointment is really long. Waiting an hour between nurse and Dr. seems a little long, especially after a half hour wait in the waiting room.
I waited for 3 hours to see the doctor , I kept checking if they forgot about us ! I saw people who came after us leave before us . no body carried . I had 3 kids with since school is out ! i don't think it's healthy and reasonable ! very dissapointed
Dr. Lope is an excellent physician and surgeon. She's incredibly professional, personable and passionate about her field.
Dr.Lean Lope who is my son's opthalmologist is an excellent doctor, she has a lot of patience in treating her patients, my sone loves to see her. Every vist is fabulous and she is my son's favourite doctor, she talks to my son with so much love and listens to him and also tells him what are the benefits and how things can imporve his eyes by putting patch on his eye. Honestly Dr.Leane Lope is the best doctot that we have choosed for our son. I dont have any bad things to say about Dr.Leane Lope.
The entire team devoted a large amount of their time to understand my health situation. I always felt included as an important patient and was never left for long on my own.
Lea Ann Lope is one of the best drs. She cares about her patients and takes her time with them. She always goes into detail about what's going on and what will happen!
She is exceptional md and I am glad I am having my eye surgery with her!!!
I have no complaints whatsoever with the treatment I received. All the staff was very friendly n professional.
dr lope is awesome! takes the time to listen and make sure the patient understands.
Love the staff!
I feel welcomed and well cared for at UPMC!
no problems with the provider - we like Dr. lope VERY MUCH!
Lea Anne is a rock star!
Very impressed by her!
Dr. Lope is an excellent clinician, my INO/double vision is cured by the Strabismus surgery from Dec 18, and answered many of my questions, patiently. Also Debbie, who worked with me on eye testing is excellent as well, and was very helpful concerning changes in my vision, et al.
