I owe Dr. Monahan my life. By his aggressive and preemptive methods I was diagnosed with prostate cancer before the age when most men get the PSA test. I am now 10+ years cancer free and attribute a lot of it to Dr. Monahan. I would recommend him to friends and family. Well, friends and family that have UPMC Health Insurance since it would be more difficult for them to see him if they did not. Everyone should have hassle-free access to the best doctors and facilities.
Dr Monahan is the best. Will continue to use him as my doctor!
Dr. Monahan has been my primary care physician for over 15 years, and he is the best doctor I have ever had. He is genuinely interested in my well-being. One thing I appreciate is how he starts a checkup by asking me how I am doing, listens attentively to what I have to say, and then he addresses every single item through explanation, medication, or testing. One year, I needed the attention of several specialists to address a condition. Dr. Monahan enjoys excellent relations with numerous specialists, and I think the teamwork among the doctors helped make the treatments timely and effective. Dr. Monahan really makes a positive difference for patients like me, and I am one of the many who greatly appreciate his efforts.
Theresa at the front desk is excellent.
Dr Monahan always calls to follow up on my health status and let me know results of tests or bloodwork. It is greatly appreciated. I recommended my husband have him as his PCP.
I think Dr. Monahan is a great physician. In the past I could never find a general practitioner that was so calm and smart, so I avoided them. Due to him I am finally getting the care I need.
Doctor and staff are always courteous.
My oldest son just died as a result of an opioid overdose. Dr. Monahan sat with me for a long time, discussed my mental state, suggested various ways of getting help and support, and generally listened to me and gave me a great deal of comfort and help. In addition to this sincere caring and concern shown to me, I feel he is a very good diagnostician and am very happy to have him as my doctor.
He is very knowledgeable, but it often seems like he is in a rush and just wants to move on to the next patient.
Everything was good!
Dr. Monahan is always a fantastic doctor. When I was in the hospital, he was there twice/day to make sure everything was going okay. It was nice to see a familiar face after seeing so many doctors, nurses, and specialists I've never even met before.

Just in the room too long as usual. I guess that's normal though, however I was the only one there so I didn't understand that.
My only complaint on my visit on August 21, 2017 was that I had to wait an hour to Dr. Monahan after I had my x rays taken; however, I realize that he and his staff went out of their way for me to get a same day appointment and they adjusted their schedule to accommodate mine.
