Dr. Goitz and Allison are top notch people and providers. The entire office is wonderful, polite, personable, efficient, etc.
All my experiences with UPMC providers have been fantastic!
everything went really well. I got all the answers I needed.
Allison is excellent with children. very knowledgeable and such a sweetie
I was seen by Allison Woods, PA, for a broken finger. I was reluctant to listen to her recommendations for a splint. Despite this, Allison patiently listened to my concerns, and was able to convince me that the splint is what I needed to have my fracture heal. She prescribed the splint, sent me to CRS Kaufmann Bldg that day to be fitted for the splint, and I've been healing since. Thank you Allison for your patience and expertise!!!
she was concerned with my progress concerns and pain level
Allison is an excellent physician's assistant. The meeting went very well; and she answered all of my questions thoroughly. Allison's instructions were clear and detailed. Thank you, Allison, for you important help!
She was very kind to my daughter and got us in and out efficiently while providing excellent care.
Answered all questions and concerns.
this orthopedic office is great. allisonis great. thanks
Ms Woods was excellent- provided additional info for post surgery incision care. She did not rush the appointment
first time I've seen dr. Gates PA Allison what a beautiful woman and a great personality she made me feel at ease and told me a few things to do with my hand that I had surgery on great job
doc was able toshare her similar experience about carpal tunnel surgery with me. great doc answered all my concerns.
Very personable, great personality, took time to answer questions in detail. Requested to see her in follow ups because of her bedside manner.
They were very nice and pleasant. It was for my bicep surgery and I greatly appreciated all the help.
She was awesome! I loved her bedside manner. She was gentle and considerate with a sense of humor. :) ..makes me want to punch another wall just to see her again!! Thank you Allison!!!
Allison was very thorough and patient on my visit. Thank you!
Allison was professional, friendly, provided excellent patient care, was appropriately candid with her treatment recommendations. She spoke to my soon to be 18 year old son as an adult, appropriately consulting with me. She explained which bone was broken in terms he understood, explained the need for a cast and thoroughly and clearly communicated all aspects of diagnosis, treatment and follow up. Allison is an excellent medical provider.
it was fair because I thought more test shoulld of been given the make sure my figure or hand wasn't broke. You can't always see a fracture on X-ray
very good experiences
When it turned out that the ER hadn't done the follow-up care they were supposed to, she didn't make me feel responsible for that or scare me. She just made sure I got what I needed, and was very approachable the whole time.
I was extremely happy with this provider. She was very pleasant and skillful.
everyone was very nice. great experience
Great bedside manner, very satisfied with care provided
I received a verr good treatment
the provider was really good and I would visit her again
PA-Allison Woods was extremely knowledgeable, explained post-op care thoroughly and was very empathetic to my daughter's situation with going through the recovery after this surgery. She put my daughter at ease and answered all of our questions very well.
very goog experience
Very happy with everyone there.
Allison was very helpful in explaining my surgery and healing process. She also had the surgery and was very helpful on how to work thru the recovery
Provider made me feel like I had her full attention and this helped more inclined to listen and follow her recommendation.
I had a post op appointment with Allysonin Dr. Goitz Office. She was profetional, timely, knowledable and companionate.
I feel the Doctor addressed the issue at hand and gave me some important tips to help with the healing and care.
Alison has a friendly and warm manner
everything was completely explained. I am very satisfied with my treatment and the outcome.
ALLISON WAS VERY HELPFUL AND DID A GREAT JOB!
great overall visit.
I had the best surgeon, and nurses and assistant that you come to expect. I placed my complete trust in them and would do so again if needed.
I was accommodated with an early morning appointment when I called first thing in the morning to follow up as instructed by Urgent Care provider 18 hours prior. My history, experience, vocation, and comprehension of the involved subject matter was very well integrated into conversation Allison Voelker. Her listening and comprehension of my description of my history of my injury and onset of presenting symptoms sped the examination to the steps necessary to define the presentation fully and define the course to prescribe.
Allison was AWESOME! Very caring, extremely professional and respectful!!!
She took time to examine and listen to my feedback.
Alison, Nick and the front office staff all made me feel very comfortable
I was treated promptly and kindly. Eneryone in this office has been always compassionate and professional.
this was a post op visit for my second surgery. The MA removed my stitches and I waited over 30 minutes for the PA to come into the room to look at my healed incision. She promptly attempted to exit the room. I had to stop her to ask questions regarding PT and expectations for return of function and strength. I also asked her to clean up the wound, as there was dead skin all around the incision. (the surgeon did this for the first surgery). She stated that she doesn't do that, but "I can give you a pair of sterile scissors if you want to do it yourself at home." I manage a medical practice and found this to be an odd response.
