More time should be given during the exam. coming in, saying you may need more surgery, we'll see you in a month and leaving is very disconcerting.
the wait time was very long and I was 30 minutes past my appointment time when I was seen. I also waited for a long period of time once I was escorted to the office.
The entire staff at the Lemieux complex are friendly and professional. There are not attitudes, the staff are very good at what they do and they seem to enjoy their jobs. Nice change from being led thru a medical facility like cattle.
I received excellent service. I'm extremely happy with my Doctor.Dr Vyos.
liked the doc. very professional. easy to talk to.
Great personality, amiable, friendly and very knowlegeable about my specific treatment.
Excellent Doctor! He shows concern for your problem and try's to resolve it. Explains very thorough so you understand! I felt very confident in his knowledge of my problems and the way to resolve my concerns.
The sports medicine Institute on Water Street Pittsburgh Pa. is the best place to go when an injury occurs
I loved dr vyas and his staff. I feel I got the best care! totally pleased!
Dr. Vyas is fantastic. His assistant Erin is great too. I would recommend them to anyone.
I have always been treated at UPMC with the utmost respect and quality care.
Dr Vyas and his Assistant Erin have been terrific.
Dr. Vyas, Ermias, Erin, and the rest of the staff are always very pleasant, friendly, and considerate of my needs.
I completely trust Dr. Vyas and have recommended him and his team to many family and friends
From the time I entered the building until I checked out my experience was flawless. Dr. Vyas and his staff are second to none. I recommend him to everyone that would be in need of his care.
very informative and helpful. polite
great doctor!! his partner (?) was awesome, she was such a sweetheart
Dr Vyas and Erin McClain are some of the best providers I have ever worked with. I recommend him to EVERYONE I know with orthopaedic surgical needs.
great all the way around
The Dr. could of had a better bedside manner. I felt intimidated at times. He did show concern for me though.
I like Dr. Vyas. He is very professional, respectful and it is my opinion he knows his craft. I am going to need a some knee surgery and I hope Dr. Vyas does a good job for me.
great experience. I feel very confident in Dr. Vyas' assessment. Resident Ermias was very helpful and good as well.
thank you. always extremely satisfied.
The provider was very knowledgeable,but rushed.
I was very pleased with the results of my visit with this physician
Dr. Vyas is nothing but completely professional. I have great respect and confidence in him.
It is always a pleasure to receive orthopedic care from Dr. Vyas at the Lemieux Sports Complex.
Dr Vyas and his entire team made a surgical procedure/experience as clear and smooth as possible
Dr. Vyas was nice and pleasant. During the end of my visit, we had discussed a plan of action that we will take on my next visit to the office, for an injury. Dr. Tiffany was very nice also.
very efficient staff, courteous and kind
Excellent experience. Everyone was very nice.
Dr. Vyas was very attentive, listened to all of my concerns, and answered all of my questions. He then went on to provide a detailed plan of care for my injury. He was also interested in seeing me back in the office to assess my progress.
dr vyas and dr duca are excellent
Dr. Vyas is an amazing physician, one of the finest I have come across at UPMC. He is thorough and his attention to my son was above and beyond. I don't often leave a doctors office feeling totally confident with knowledge, care, and ability.
Dr.Vyas is a very friendly doctor would recommend him to everyone who has a orthopedic need.
great care, great people
the best office I have been to in a long time!
I can't say enough about how wonderful Dr. Vyas and his staff have been. I have seen Dr. Vyas multiple times preparing for and recovering from hip surgery he performed. He has been incredibly patient, friendly, knowledgeable, and attentive every step of the way. I have the highest confidence in his abilities and am always impressed with how much time he spends with me to address my questions and concerns. I was treated by multiple Physicians prior to seeing Dr. Vyas, and he is in a league of his own. Erin McClain has also been beyond wonderful to work with; she is kind, caring, and incredibly responsive. Knowing she was there made me feel at ease the day of surgery. She always makes time to address questions and concerns. Dr. Vyas and his team make UPMC look good. I only wish I would have found them sooner!
Dr. was running behind. my appointment was at 11:45 and I was not seen until 1:00.
By his reputation & the end result of my surgery, I do believe that Dr. Vyas is an excellent surgeon, however, I have had to wait 50 minutes to over an hour to see him on a routine scheduled check-up & I've left with mixed feelings about whether he really answered all of my questions.
Dr Vyas is the best I have sent people to him Inhope he never leaves
The staff and physician were great. I really like Dr. Vyas and everyone was very friendly and helpful - I just really hate waiting forever. This takes time out of my day as well - I had to take time off work for this. I was there for over 2 hours, and with staff for about 20 - 25 minutes. I was there before my scheduled time... That is what I'm supposed to do. You should respect my time and be on time for me.
Dr Vyas us an excellent physician who inspires confidence in my health care. I am grateful that a physician of his caliber is here in Pittsburgh!
Extremely impressed with Dr. Vyas. Very thorough and friendly and obviously knowledgeable. He speaks directly to my daughter and never seems rushed to get through. Best doctor ever dealt with.
Dr. Vyas has excellent bedside manner and was excellent at my diagnoses and I appreciated his conservative approach to my rehabilitation.
excellent care for my son and myself. wonderful experience. friendly knowledgeable
Dr Vyas and his team are amazing!
I came with an injury to my knee and calf. I was given an X-ray and told to have physical therapy for 3 weeks. I believe the doctor should have also taken an MRI and taken more time to develop a meaningful diagnosis. Other than that the doctor and staff were very courteous but I'm not satisfied with the lack of specificity of the doctor's diagnosis.
Dr. Vyas is excellent in getting my son in for appointments in a timely manner. Once there he does everything possible to ensure concerns are addressed, and my son's health comes first. Wrestling is my son's outlet, and definitely bring balance to his life. His emotional state is 100% more positive when he is able to be on the mat. Dr. Vyas is very understanding of the importance wrestling plays in my son's life and he makes it a priority to ensure he is healthy and ready to go!
I suffered from a bad knee injury and could not be put in better hands. Dr. Vyas and his assistant, Erin, have been amazing. I will be forever grateful.
My appointment was at 8:15 (I arrived at 7:55). I wasn't escorted back to a room until 8:45, and didn't see the doctor until 9:15. This is completely unacceptable. Why should I be expected to be on time, but the doctor doesn't feel any similar urgency? This is a common occurrence with this doctor. If I have anymore problems, I will be finding another doctor.
Dr Vyas is the ultimate professional . I am confident that he is giving me the best there is to offer regarding my orthopedic situation.
Dr. Vyas was very good during my first visit. He was very late for the 2nd appointment. He had a "Fellow" come in to meet with me in the meantime to ask questions, and he left offering no input or comments whatsoever. When Dr. Vyas finally came in, my perception was that he was rushed. I do not know if he reviewed my MRI images, certainly not with me in the room, he never sat down, and when I asked questions, his reply was "everything is the same from what I told you before. You have to make a decision, I need to go". However, I had questions regarding the medical implications of timing considerations related to my work/job and personal time constraints.
the highest compliment I can give to Dr. Vyas is:i am a mother to three children and I csn still plat can still play softball
Very good staff and treatment. Outstanding experience!
Great care I left the appointment feeling as though I knew what the problem was and my options to feeling better.
The care I get from Dr Vyas and is staff is always excellent!
Dr. Vyas is the best doctor I have ever gone to see. He was courteous, considerate, and obviously very knowledgable. His entire team worked together to provide excellent care. I have full trust that they all have my quality of care as their highest priority. It was a very refreshing visit for an with which issue I've become very frustrated. I have told multiple people about my positive experience at the Lemeiux Sports Facility and with Dr. Vyas.
Everyone was so nice .
Always a good experience, with my Dr. and his asst.Erin.The staff for appts., and other issues, are all very friendly.
couldnt ask for better care!
Dr. Vyas is an excellent doctor!!!
awesome care very impressed thus fsr.
Dr. Vyas and his staff are top notch. They are recommended as the best for a reason, and live up to their reputation.
This team works well together. It shows in the care that they provided to me as well as my family members. Concerns and questions were responded to compassionately and courteously. Please, keep up the great work!
The Doctor and Nurses were quick to get my x-rays. A problem that required the Doctor's immediate attention pulled him away so I lay no blame for the wait. Once in the zone though he found the problem and had me come in for a follow up MRI.
Love Dr. Vyas. His work is excellent. And my recovery has been flawless thanks to his diligence. Have already recommended him and his team to others.
Excellent office staff, excellent care by physician. I am extremely pleased with all aspects of my care with Dr. Vyas. Highly recommend.
Excellent except for the hour wait time.
Dr Vyas always makes sure I understand the plan. he's great. Erin has also been great!
Dr. Vyas had great bedside manner & did not make me rushed in the care he provided thus far. He also took the time to explain what the process of my future treatment may be based on additional test(s) i.e. MRI
HE IS TRYING TO GET MY KNEE TO WORK THE WAY IT SHOULD
Dr. Vyas has shown exceptional attention to my medical needs, and he and his staff have gone above and beyond to see that my concerns and needs (surgery) was expediently scheduled. They have taken extraordinary measures to fit me into their hectic schedule, and made sure that I always comfortable and fully understanding of all steps taken to restore my shoulder to full use. I have the utmost respect for Dr. Vyas , PA Erin, and the rest of the staff for their efficiency, thoroughness, and professionalism, and would definitely recommend them .
Dr. Vyas was prompt in initiating and executing his care plan, and thorough in making sure the recovery process is handled in a manner to bring my son safely back to his sports competition level.
It was a nice experience as always.
It's unfortunate that I have a negative comment because the facility and staff are both fantastic. It is just not reasonable for a doctor to see a patient one-and-a-half hours past the appointment time. While this was my first encounter with this doctor, this is typical for the surgeons in this group who have previously treated me. It seems that their medical expertise is superb but their respect for patient's time is lacking.
Very efficient at Sports Medicine. I have a lot of respect for this practice and my doctor. They are very professional and competent!
He explained things well and was respectful.
was very happy. Doctor was very very helpful!
I was very fortunate to have Dr. Vyas perform the rotator cuff repair in my left shoulder. I see from his post op report and in-process pictures, that his work on me was very thorough and meticulous! He took the time to verbally explain how he corrected my condition. That really impressed me.
Dr. Vyas is always extremely mindful of precautions for patient (and staff) safety. He usually tries to use the visit as a teaching tool for any staff he has with him. Everything is always explained in detail to my satisfaction.
Dr. Vyas, has been the best specialist I've ever seen. He explained everything about my surgery and followed through personally when I had trouble after the first surgery. He took the extra precaution of doing a second surgical procedure to guard against infection. I have always felt he was taking my case seriously and he's always been straight up about my PT and care. His P.A., Erin is amazing, too. She schedules everything and always returns our calls. His secretary, Dawn is great, too. She made sure that I had all the letters I needed for the university's Air Force ROTC program so I could manage my flight schedule. I would recommend Dr. Vyas to anyone needing orthopedic care.
I was extremely impressed with the courtesy, care and friendliness of ALL staff. Exceptional customer service and attention. I am so glad I chose UPMC for this health concern and have complete confidence in the physician and staff. Thank you.
Dr. Vyas and his entire team have dramatically improved my life! I have recommended them to every person that has expressed that they are looking for a shoulder surgeon. I had one shoulder successfully and flawlessly repaired on October 5th, 2015. I was so pleased with my outcome that I had my second shoulder repaired on February 29. I look forward to an equally fabulous result.
Dr. Vyas is the epitome of professionalism!!! I cannot say enough great things about him. He is an expert in his profession and a genuinely compassionate person!
Dr. Vyas is a great doctor who cares about his patients
Facility and staff were excellent.
he was great
I highly recommend Dr. Vyas. I had a great experience
Excellent care provider. Very thorough on my care.
The experience I had with Dr. Vyas and his fellow, was exceptional. The examination was thorough, and the doctor answered all of my questions about my medical conditions and possible treatment option. I also received outstanding service from Dr. Vyas's assistant calling the office.
It was an awesome experience. In a matter of just 3 hours, I was able to have full X-rays of my shoulder, get an examination from my dr, have a contrasting MRI and see the dr immediately after to consult with dr on his diagnosis. It was a pleasure and very convenient since I drove 2 hours for my initial visit
Our experience was wonderful from the time we entered the facility to the time we left. I did not feel rushed, my questions were answered, and everyone was very pleasant. Very impressed.
Post surgery my family was waiting at the hospital and were appreciative of Dr Vyas coming out to talk with them about the procedure.
Dr. Vyas, Erin and all his staff have been very nice to me and my wife. I would recommend him to anyone needing shoulder surgery. I have been to both Cranberry and Monroeville offices and would not hesitate to go to either again. Also, everyone at South Side Hospital were very nice. Great job!!
I value Dr Vyas's and Physician Assistant Erin's skill and knowledge and their good, efficient communication. I feel well-taken care of.
Dr. Vyas has been caring for me for 2 years I've had 2 shoulder surgeries in that time. He has always been caring considerate and informed. I spoke with a few surgeons before I made my decision and I am very happy that I picked Dr. Vyas. He fixed me up and I am forever grateful to him. When I was having difficulty he was concerned and always made himself available to me. Best surgeon ever.
Dr. Vyas & his team are wonderful.
Great doctor that takes his time with you as a patient.
Dr Vyas very personable & professional -- he listened to & addressed my concerns.
I would definatly go back and refer to my friends and family. My mother does go to this practice and sees dr fowler. I thought the dr I seen and his assistant dr were very nice
I recommend this practice to family and friends all the time.
The best overall care I was ever provided.
I would highly recommend Eric McClain (PE) and Dr. Vyas
Exceptional care from Dr. Vyas and his support staff!
I have the greatest confidence and respect for Dr Vyas to be my doctor
Excellent care and very competent - made me feel great about choosing them, great facilities also!

Dr Vyas is an excellent doctor. he makes things easy to understand with his well thought out analogies. he answered all my questions as well.
Dr. Vyas is a wonderful surgeon with the greatest respect for his patients. He has a caring manner and is very respectful and thorough and ensures that all of your questions and concerns are addressed and completely understood. His staff is friendly and respectful and I have felt as though I have been in perfect hands for my surgeries. I would recommend Dr. Vyas to any of my friends and family.
Excellent overall experience.
Dr. Vyas did an incredible job with my knee surgery. While I have almost always had to wait 45min-1hr beyond my appointment time to see him (which can be very irritating) I appreciate that he is the type of doctor to answer all questions you have (and I always have a ton) so I assume the wait is just him giving this high level of attention to everyone. He's friendly, he answers all of my questions (again, I ask a ton of questions and take notes) and most importantly, my knee feels great. God forbid i have to get my other knee done, but if I do I will head straight back to Vyas.
The staff was very professional and courteous, we left with a feeling of relief.
Very professional, knowledgeable and takes the time to answer all questions/concerns. I would highly recommend this doctor to family and friends.
It was very complete, respectful and efficient
Dr Vyas has been amazing I highly recommend him to anyone needing a sports dr. He understands that surgery and medication are the last things I want to resort to and he has done everything possible to give me options other than those two things. I feel like he is truly teying to help me figure out what is wrong with my knee and not just push me away with a basic treatment.
We were so happy with the care she received from Dr. Vyas that I brought home a business card with his information to give to another soccer player/parent on our daughter's team.
As a parent, you never want to see your child get injured and need hip surgery... especially at age 16. I called the office, received an appointment right away. Dr. Vyas and his PA, Erin, exceeded our expectations. My husband and I, as well as our daughter felt well taken care of. We also received excellent care at Mercy for the surgery. Both Dr. Vyas and Erin kept us well informed and explained everything so we could understand. Dr. Vyas even called our daughter's PT to discuss her care with him. We were very pleased with Dr. Vyas, Erin, Mercy, and the staff. Everyone showed care and compassion for our daughter... Thank you!!
Loved the doctor. He was very good explaining everything to me.
always have a good experince at Dr Vyas office-
Excellent Doctor with an excellent team of support. He works well and supervises them carefully.
He was great and explained everything very well to myself and my wife. We are revisiting him for a follow up meeting later this week after a MRI.
Dr. Vyas took plenty of time with me and made me feel confident we were addressing my issue conservatively and with consideration to my activity level and future activity.
Dr Vyas was fantastic at explaining my current knee issues and how we are going to resolve them.
I really appreciated my doctor and the care he gave me.
I thought he did an excellent job and explained everything to me.
was very pleased with the doctor and his staff.
Excellent visit with above average care given by doctor and staff.
