Excellent care. Wonderful communication.
It was good to ask some questions and get input from the doctor.
My Dr is always attentive and professional to my health needs, I feel very comfortable discussing my health concerns.
Dr Courcoulas is always very interested in my health and well being. She takes her time with you during your appointment, addresses all of my questions or concerns, and finds solutions to whatever it is, and makes sure that my health care is monitored on a regular basis. Excellent Dr. whose patients are her first priority always.
Dr Courcoulas is very thorough in her care. She is always ready to answer as many questions and address any concerns that you have. She is the most qualified Dr in this field. My wife and I both see her, and we are more than grateful for her care and vigilance in keeping us healthy and on track.
Dr. Courcoulas is wonderful.
I have nothing but high regard for Dr. Courcoulis. I came into the emergency room 6 months ago with a burst bowel and she and her team worked on me and saved me. She and her staff have always been kind, respectful, helpful and professional to me.
The care provider was very nice and had good communication. The PA was extremely incredible! She was very friendly and outgoing. She made you feel comfortable. However, after arriving a half hour early to my appointment, I did not see the doctor until 2 hours after my actual appointment time. The wait time was not pleasant and a little aggravating, especially when the doctor saw you for 10 minutes.
everyone was nice, and respectful. All my questions were answered, and I have confidence in my Dr.
Had all positive experiences with everyone I was in contact with that day.
very informative first visit.
The doctor and staff very informational. They listened and addressed any questions and concerns.
I was asked to arrive 15 minutes prior to my 4 PM appointment and I did arrive at 3:45 PM. I was not seen by the physician assistant until 5 PM. I had to go out and ask what was going on at 4:45 PM. This wait time is unacceptable.
Good experience from I walked through the door until I left. Thank you!
Absolutely love her. she listens and makes sure you understand what is going on and answers any questions you have.
she was effective to my healthcare concerns
first time with this provider. The entire care team was excellent and attentive.
I just had to wait a long time to see this provider. my appointment was 10:40 AM and I didn't see the dr until 12:05 PM. I saw the Physicians Assistant first then waited over and hour for the doctor.
Dr. Courcoulas is a very caring and understanding surgeon. She will be performing a surgery for me next week and after my visit, and I am 100% confident that everything will go well.
I seen Jordonna and she always makes me feel good about the care that I receive. Jordonna is a great listener and she does not rush you during the appointment. when I leave I am very confident in what I have to do to better take care of myself.
Love Dr. C. - she was very professional and took the time to address all of my concerns. Wish every doctor was like her.
I had to have emergency surgery on 11-24-17 for a burst bowel and I was lucky to have this provider.
good to me love her best worker have on diet and exercise
Dr. Courcoulas and her PA Amy were amazing. Answered all my questions and got me scheduled for surgery quickly.
There seems to be no concern about the length of wait a patient may be experiencing.
I left feeling like I finallly found help that I need.
she listened to my concern and helped to answer all my questions and to ease my concern, I was glad I took the time to make the appointment with the Dr. her information that she gave me helped me to make a decision about surgery.
best surgeon at UPMC
Everyone worked well together, and everyone was very kind and friendly. Thank you.
Always the best in care, compassion, expertise from Dr Courcoulas and her staff. Have referred 5 friends to her for gastric bypass help. Every one of them has thanked me for sending them to her. All providers should take a page from her book on patient care.
It was an absolute pleasure meeting my new doctor. She answered all of my questions in great detail. No question was "dumb" and is a very pleasant lady. Her PA was wonderful as well.
extremely pleased so far with the friendliness, professionalism, and efficiency
Presented me with a wealth of knowledge, reading material.
Absolutely wonderful. Dr. Courcoulas was punctual, answered all of my questions, and made sure to provide me with additional contact information for her team as well.
Excellent care was provided from the very beginning. My wife and I highly recommend the hospital staff and the doctor's team as well. The doctor herself was outstanding as well.
Very disappointed in the lack of understanding of quitting smoking and how difficult that is. And to expect that to happen before a procedure and after. It's hard enough to lose weight and focus on that let alone asking for someone to quit smoking right along with it. I think there is a HUGE lack of understanding and flexability with that matter. I also could have been told prior to a three hour travel time that if you smoke you are NOT a candidate for the procedure I was looking to have done. (Obera) Very upset about that.
I was pleased during my initial visit.
I have only just begun to utilize this facility and staff so far I would say excellent.
This doctor and practice is new to me. I left my appointment feeling 100% confident about having my surgery.
Courcoulas and staff were excellent
Dr. Courcalous was very pleasant. She explained in detail the process of my procedure.
The provider was informative, caring, knowledgeable and patient. The provider and her office is very organized and has been extremely helpful. I walked away from my appointment feeling like I was in safe and capable hands
I was very happy with the amount of time Dr. Courcoulas and her PA spent with me. They took the time to answer all my questions and did not seem in a rush to leave the room. They were very kind and explained things in a way I could understand.
Dr Courcalous is extremely informative, knowledgable, and genuinely cares about your personal health overall. She wanted to make sure that she addressed any questions or concerns that I may or may not have had. I feel extremely confident in placing my health and life in her hands during any surgical procedure.
great as always
The staff and physician were very friendly and knowledgeable. I felt that all my questions were answered and feel very confident in their ability to provide the best care possible.
Listened to my questions and there was a lot and they answered them and was very concerned to answer so I could understand them. They were very GOOD!!
They're all polite, answered my questions and no waiting time.
Dr. Corcoulus is wonderful. Very personable and spends time explaining everything. I feel very confident in her as my surgeon.
The staff and doctors made us very comfortable and were very knowledgeable!
I was referred to the Dr. by my PCP . I did like her & found her to be interested in my issues I am having.
I am very pleased with Dr. Courcoulas. She is very efficient and thorough. She explained my upcoming procedure with great detail and answered all of my questions. I feel very confident that I made the right decision in choosing her as my surgeon.
When I spoke to the Dr. she reassured me and made me feel better about my up coming surgery. Her staff was great.
