Dr. Lewarchik is very caring and warm. She spends a lot of time with me. I never feel rushed.
Dr. Lewarchik is the kindest and most attentive doctor I have ever seen, and I would reccomend her to everyone!
This was a first visit to establish a new PCP. Dr. was excellent and will continue relationship.
Dr. Lewarchik is very compassionate and very thorough--these are her strengths. She referred me to Dr. Rao, who is also compassionate and thorough. Excellent doctors, both of them!
My care provider and her staff have shown me excellent care.
I love my care provider! She is always attentive and has proven to be a great listener because she remembers details of both my medical & personal information. I feel blessed that I can continue to have her as a provider.
Dr. Lewarchik is a wonderful provider. She is patient and kind.
Dr. Lewarchik was one of the most caring and listening providers that I have ever visited. I thoroughly enjoyed the visit as it was my first. I will definitely be coming back.
Receiving excellent care from Dr. Lewarchick.
Dr. Lewarchik was fantastic, very easy to talk to.
Anna Lewarchik is the best provider, hands down.
Dr. Anna Lewarchik/White is a fantastic doctor. She constantly puts me first and knows what I need based on my health history as well as my family's. I'd never go to anyone else unless it was an emergency.
This was my first visit with Dr. Lewarchik. She spent over an hour with me going over my concerns. She was very thorough and really listened to me. I am very happy I switched my to this practice. I have already recommended Dr. Lewarchik to my family.
Dr. White (previously Dr. Lewarchik) and her staff were welcoming and kind. She showed exceptional generosity in the time she gave me during my office visit and used an analogy to clarify a medical diagnosis that had made no sense to me previously. However her receptionist failed to invite me to schedule my follow up appointment when giving me my after-visit papers, so I had to phone and schedule it myself when I remembered after I left Dr. White's office. No receptionist has forgotten that at other doctors' offices. Moreover, I messaged Dr. White through MyUPMC the day after my visit, yet neither she nor her staff have replied. I've waited eight days for a response, which is already four times longer than the wait with any of my other doctors. Also, when I talked with Dr. White's nurse to ask for an urgent care follow up appointment, no appointment was available. So essentially, I have no access to primary care outside of my physical office visit with this PCP. This doctor is good if you can actually grab her by the buttonhole and get her in an office visit, but don't expect this busy provider to make time for you between appointments. You'll have to refer yourself to urgent care and specialists if your insurance allows.
My care provider is an excellent doctor who seems to genuinely care about me and my health. I am lucky to have her as my provider.
wonderful experience, doctor very efficient.
Anna is ALWAYS so helpful and kind. I continue to recommend her to anyone that needs a doctor!

I have a Stellar physican who manages my overall health and I appreciate her dedication and expertise.
Dr. Lewarchik is wonderful. I did not feel rushed, and felt like she spent as much time as needed with me. She explained options clearly, and had obviously looked over my medical records and family history prior to meeting with me. She addressed my concerns in a way that was not condescending, and reached out to a specialist when she was unsure of an answer. She also followed up via MyUPMC messages within three hours of my visit. I would highly, highly recommend her as knowledgeable, approachable, and a great PCP.
My current health issue is related to physical therapy needed due to sciatic nerve pain. Not only do I have great respect for my primary care doctor and office staff but for the the PT center and their office staff. I couldn't be treated any better than I am.

Dr Lewarchik is the best doctor I have ever had, hands down. She is thoughtful, intelligent, thorough, and kind. She always listens and provides her professional opinion for a course of action as well as other options that are available, in the case where there are choices. I cannot recommend her highly enough. She was recommended to me by a close friend in 2015 and has been my doctor, my family's doctor, and the doctor to many of my closest friends since then. She is trust-worthy and everything about her practice is patient-centered.
Dr. Lewarchik was great--thorough, knowledgeable, respectful.
Dr. Lewarchik made sure I had my asthma medication in a timely fashion. At the moment, my asthma and health could be characterized as critical; she clearly understood that and made sure I had what I needed when I needed it.
Excellent physician and student. Both extremely attentive, respectful and truly displayed the "UMPC experience". Never had the attention and care received on this visit. She will be my physician for a very long time.

the doctor makes me feel very comfortable.
my care provider is excelent
I love Dr. Lewarchik! She really listens and then explains. You can tell that she cares about her patients.
Dr. Lewarchik is absolutely wonderful. She returns your messages VERY quickly. Always offers valuable information and actually listens and remembers the details the next time you come in I would never go to anyone else for care other a specialist as necessary.
I am very happy with Dr Lewarchik and hope UPMC will make it so that she stays onboard. She is a caring and compassionate medical practitioner and listens to the concerns of her patient.
I cannot say enough good things about Dr. Lewarchik. I chose her as my PCP a year ago, and only saw her one time before this recent visit. She remembered all important details about me and my medical care. She listened attentively and spent all the time with me that I needed. She followed up via the MyUPMC with suggestions for exercises for my shoulder that has been having very slight soreness.
my doctor is very attentive to all my medical health concerns. Dr. Lewarchik treats me as a valuable individual each visit. i appreciate and admire her skills professionally demonstrated.
she is simply amazing and I glad she's my doctor

Dr. Lewarchik is an EXCELLENT Dr. She is very knowledgeable, takes her time, listens and provides excellent health solutions.
She is very engaging and supportive of my health goals. Easy to talk to and gives advice on any issues I am having.
Dr Lewarchik is, hands down, the best doctor I've ever had. I heard about her from a close friend, and now all of my friends and some of my family see her as our PCP. She is intelligent and kind; always listens an offers her own expertise or recommends a trusted expert if it isn't in her area. If I ever leave the Pittsburgh area, I doubt I could find a doctor like her again. It's so nice to know that someone is looking out for your health and giving you sound advice and referrals so that you can live your best, healthiest life.
Dr. Lewarchik is absolutely fantastic. She listens to every concern I have and thoughtful process how we should approach for the best treatment. I had to have some tests done and she got me the results in the late evening just to make sure I had them before waiting until the morning. I couldn't ask for a better PCP!
I have been completely happy and satisfied with my interactions with Dr. Lewarchik.
Dr. Lewarchak is a wonderful provider. She takes time to listen to her patients and make the best decisions for them.
Dr. Lewarchik listens, to everything; makes credible suggestions about care that I can take to other doctors who treat me. She is an amazing doctor and person. Please keep her at Shea Medical.
I've been a patient of Shea Medical for at least 10 years, probably a lot longer. I can truthfully say that I cannot come up with any suggestions on how they can improve their services because they have always given me the utmost in excellent service. I adore Dr. Lewarchik. I think of Dr. Anna more as my buddy than my physician. I respect her and wouldn't think of going to another M.D. as long as she is on staff and in the area. I have confided in her and what blows me away is that she remembers things that I said a year ago that were not written on my chart. These things were what I would tell my best girl friend. If she were not my PCP, I would want her in my life as a girl friend. I worked in Transplant for 10 years and, I think, I know an excellent physician when I see one having been exposed to so many surgeons and physicians. I believe that Anna M. Lewarchik is an excellent physician and I'm delighted that she is my PCP.
Dr. Lewarchik and team are best in class. Courtesy and caring from start to finish. I recently moved, and I'd still rather drive 1 hour to this team then change my doctor.
A great experience the doctor spent a great deal of time with me. This was a new doctor for me and I am very pleased, I will recommend her to all of my friends and family.
I have never had a bad experience @ Shea. Even when I had to wait to see my provider, the wait was explained to me.
Dr. Lewarchik listened attentively to my concerns and went above and beyond to provide excellent care.
care provider was very proficient in answering the questions that I asked concerning my health.
Dr. Lewarchik listens very carefully and is very caring.
Dr. Lewarchik is very caring, extremely conscientious and very attentive during every minute of every visit. I am thankful she is my doctor!
Dr. Lewarchik is the best doctor I ever had.. she is very easy to talk to and is very thorough. I have recommended her to several family and friends..
