Great overall, just a long wait (about 45 min)
Very good experience during my doctor visit
I love this office ! I am always greeted when I come in with a hello.. the nurse is AWESOME! she remembers our last conversations from previous visits and asks about my family and how I am feeling!!! Dr Segal is so patient and thorough.. he always checks up to make sure I'm taking my medicine correctly and always askes about my health, how I am feeling.. doing! they are an awesome team!!!
All my experiences with my provider have been excellent. He is one of the three best providers I have had in my 87 years
dr Segal has been our Dr for more than 30 Years. we Trust Him!!
prescribed a dangerous medication at dangerous doses without explaining side effects according to pharmacy. didn't pay attention to my chief complaint which has been mentioned for the last three visits, and had to fight for a referral to an ENT for specialty examination. has not performed a head to toe exam ever. preventative care not offered.
only bad thing was he was 1 hour behind sch.
Dr. Barry Segal is tops, a decent man and a 'healer' in the oldest sense of the word.
It was seamless.
This doctor was very friendly and made me feel comfortable talking to him about my health.
My first time here and it was a goodexperience
My care provider may not be punctual, but he is NEVER rushed, takes all the time necessary to talk with me. I have a long standing relationship with him, he knows me and is familiar with my history.
not enough attention to diet and how it relates to conditions and meds.
Great thanks again for everything
As with most Dr's I see. I'm never seen"on time".
Dr Segal is very good and pays attention to detail
I am always greeted with a big smile (Tamara) when I visit or pick up prescriptions. the nurse was very friendly and understanding I was actually having anxiety that day and she was super helpful!! Dr Segal is so patient and talks about everything!!! I am so happy with this office as I recently changed from agh.. thank you!!
I have been seeing Dr. Segal for at least 16 years and he has consistently been the best PCP that I have ever seen. He gives me the time necessatry to dicuss whatever medical issues and questions that I have. Even more important, he listens carefully and is always responsive to my concerns. Most importantly, I believe that Dr. Segal is a highly talented diagnostician. As a PCP his role is most often to diagnose more than to treat, and to recognize when I need to see a specialist for further diagnosis or treatment. I can't remember a time when Dr. Segal has not come up with the right diagnosis. I think that it requires more skill and talent to be a good diagnostician, than it does to treat an illness. if you have the wrong diagnosis, you can't get the right treatment. Many PCPs aare deficiet in this aarea and simply pass the problem along or smply pass over it. Dr. Segal picks up on every sign of a potential problem, and follows up on it.
He is excellent!
Even though the wait time to see dr. Segal is running a bit late, I always know he will spend as much time with me as needed.
The nurse and assistant in the clinic provide me wonderful care and service. They are very kind and professional.
very good always
Overall, very good.
Dr Segal is always patient with me and takes the time necessary to answer all my questions and concerns.
Dr. Segal is a caring, knowledgeable excellent doctor who is has taken good care of me, my family and friends for many years. He has always been available when needed. I highly recommend him to others.
nice man, but rushed appointment. I don't feel he spent enough time checking my vitals and didn't even think it necessary to get blood tests until I insisted.
Wonderful MDGreat staff
friendly, warm yet professional
Dr. Segal and his staff did an excellent job processing my request to be seen, gave adequate attention to my concerns. Dr. Segal listens carefully and offers excellent opportunities to maintain the best health possible.

I had different insurance most of my life and ended up with UPMC.. I cannot tell you enough how calm it makes me feel knowing I have Dr Segal he is extremely knowledgeable, explains everything and doesn't leave anything out when it comes to my test results.. I honestly prefer him over my dr of 34 years.. thank you for providing me with the best care!!!!
Dr. Segal is an extraordinaryly caring and astute doctor. ...he was pleased with my blood work etc so some of your questions were inapplicable to me but that is not offered as a choice
I am thank G-d a healthy active woman who at this point in time does not need much contact with my doctor for any health issues. When I do need anything, I can always count on Dr Segal - who is a very warm kind caring responsive person and excellent Doctor.
Dr. Segal is an amazing diagnostician and constantly amazes me with his ability to always keep current with new medical trends and treatments.
Dr. was very easy to talk to and explained procedures well.

Excellent experience. I intend to make Dr. Segal my primary care physician.
Excellent care provider. Listens and concern about my health problem. My wife and I are both 64 and he is definitely the best we ever had.
I have been very happy with Dr. Segal's care for several years. Issues that we did not discuss in this visit, are because they are not issues. He is very thorough with his concerns and my grown adult sons and my husband now are also his patients upon my recommendations.

Excellent experience overall, despite the wait. Dr. Segal was attentive, patient and thoughtful.
Dr. Barry Segal is a excellent physician. His concern and compassion are wonderful.
ALWAYS A GOOD EXPERIENCE......ALWAYS HELPFUL ---EXPLAINS THOROUGHLY-----ALWAYS GENUINELY CARES.....
Dr. Segal is one of the finest and most thorough physicians I have ever known, and I have known fine doctors. Shaylin, his PA, and Lois, his nurse/assistant, are also completely responsive to my needs -- both short term and long term.
This physician is great and your surveys are tooooooooooooooooooo long
I feel very comfortable with the care that I get and the employees as well as Dr Segal
Dr. Stein is a very thorough, knowledgeable, insightful, open minded and compassionate doctor-- a true leader in his profession. I am very grateful to have him as my doctor.

A real doctor-friend
Best PCP ever, great doctor and a very kind person.
Dr. Segal has been my physician for a long time. He was also my grandparents and currently my parents physician. He has an excellent knowledge of my family medical history and when my wife was having some medical issues that no one could seem to grasp, I took her there to see him as a patient and he found the problem and is overseeing her care. We would never want to switch to any other provider.
I am particularly happy with the clarity and friendliness of Dr. Segal and his staff. His diagnostic abilities are excellent and his followups are consistent.
Dr. Segal and staff is the best. I feel he shows concern about my health. I have recommended him to many family and friends.
He follow's up with you and has a answer. Always gives you 100% of his Attention!
Barry Segal is the best doctor I've ever had, bar none. He's been my primary provider for over ten years and I wish I could clone him. He listens, he cares and he follows up. I've had several surgeries and he always calls me when he gets my medical records to find out what happened, how I am and to make an appointment to follow up with me to make sure I'm healthy again. He's intelligent and very reassuring. He is a great physician.
Dr Segal is caring, knowledgeable, patient, and thorough. I have complete confidence in him and take comfort in his caring for myself and my family. While his office certainly runs more smoothly and efficiently now under UPMC auspices it still does not match his level of excellence.
I have had nothing but pleasant experiences with my provider and his staff. I recommend him highly. He doesn't rush my visits.
Excellent - knowledgeable, patient,
Dr. Segal was well verse, compassionate, thoughtful, understanding, and awesome

DR. B. SEGAL IS VERY GOOD AT LISTING, HE'S VERY HELPFULL AND ALWAYS & KIND.
Dr. Segal has an unusually way of connecting with people. He is focused on you and demonstrates empathy, respect and a desire to help...always. This is highly unusual in these days of managed care. You are very fortunate to have a Doctor like him in your network.
This was my first visit as my new provider since I moved to Pittsburgh 3 months ago. Several people referred me to Dr. Segal and I was very pleased with the visit.
My first visit and it was for a general routine physical exam. Most important part was that he truly listened and was fully vested in my care. Knew the latest literature and we had a real dialogue. Too rare these days and the most important thing to me. Already feel we have a relationship developed.
Dr. Segal is an exemplary example of what a physician/health care provider should be. He is knowldgeable and shares this knowledge with his patients in a manner that is easily understood. He is patient and allows the patient to share concerns to which he addresses in a friendly compassionate manner. He follows up with his patients in a manner that is quite rare today in the profession. I will recommend him to my patients who are searching for a PCP with complete trust that they will be as impressed with Dr. Segal as I am.
Dr. Segal and Shalyn Miller, his P.A. are extraordinary, extremely skilled in their discipline of medicine and they take the time to really hear the patient.
a very care doctor I like him very much
Doctor and staff are very patient oriented. All of my questions and concerns we addressed in a professional and friendly manner. I am very happy with medical care.

DR. SEGAL IS A GOOD LISTENER AND EXCELLENT COMMUNICATOR
spent all the time necessary to get an understanding regarding my medical history and current circumstances
Best PCP I have ever had or heard of. Have recommended to friends, one transferred there and feels the same. For people with "complex" problems, or people who do not respond "classically" to treatment, Dr. Segal provides alternatives and answers and has a very wide knowledge base.
I recommend Dr Segal all the time since he is knowledgable,caring and an excellent doctor!
I ALWAYS have a good experience with Dr. Segal and Shaylin Miller. I have full confidence and trust them.
It takes a great deal of time for assistant to come in for blood etc. after seeing doctor.
Dr. Segal is a top grade professional, and by far the best primary doctor I've ever had.
I think Dr. Barry is the best.
An excellent and very caring dr.Very thorough ,respectful, and professional.
Dr. Segal and his Pa, Shaylin Miller are fantastic! They are astute, kind, and efficient, everything one wants in your healthcare team.
I am very appreciative of the excellent medical care I receive from Dr. Segal
I feel that Dr Segal really cares about his patients.
This the best experience I've had at a PCP. He was very thorough and accommodating. The results to my blood work and X-Rays were completed that day. He responsiveness was outstanding.
Dr. Segal listened attentively. His comments and suggestions were suggestive and tentative at first, during his assessment phase. After we came to agreement on the issues, he was deliberate and clear. Yet he, again, sought my agreement and checked for my understanding.
I have already recommended Dr. Segal to friends and relatives, because he is a wonderful doctor -- exactly what a doctor should be. His PA, Shaylan, is also sweet, capable and responsive. Occasionally there are gruff technicians or helpers there; I don't know why Tamisha wasn't there yesterday. Tamisha is is also very capable and pleasant, as is Alicia the receptionist.
I have been a patient of Dr Segal for a long time, I think he is a very good doctor, he spends time with you and don't rush you out the door, I have been very satisfied with the care I have given by him.
Have been Seeing This Doctor for at least 25 years and have never had any bad experiences in all these years. He is the BEST
