we were very happy with the amount of information we received from the PA and Dr. We didn't feel rushed and all our questions were answered.
The doctor listened to my problems that I was having and ordered additional testing to try to eliminate what was happening.
everything was good
Everyone was very nice and knowledgeable
it was a good experience
dr courcoulas took a lot of time to explain the surgery, recovery time and what to expect. I feel that this visit went very well.
Grateful to the medical team for fitting me into their schedule during my time of need.
I love Dr.Courcoulas ,she knows her stuff .She also has a very knowledgeable staff. I always are made to feel everyone knows what is going on with you.
First meeting- Very articulate, confident, responsive and informative. Dr. Courcoulas provided a renewed hope for me and a plan of action to accomplish my medical needs in a very positive logical way.
this was the first time we were there. my doctor was friendly and helpful. we will need to make a few more trips from Latrobe, pa.
my care provider was very rude and advise me to get something extreme done when it wasn't called for she was very rude and disrespectful and I will not be returning to see her or that department
Dr. courcoulas and Vickie were outstanding.The Male nurse or PA who checked us in and did vitals was cold and a little rude and unfriendly, very surprising
The doctor I saw today was most informative and took the time to help me understand my options. This helps me in my decision making regarding the procedure. She is one of the best physicians I have seen at UPMC.
everyone was very nice and respectfull. plus treated me very well. answered all questions.
It was good to ask some questions and get input from the doctor.
Excellent care. Wonderful communication.
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.
very informative first visit.
Had all positive experiences with everyone I was in contact with that day.
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.
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.
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.
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
