Dr. Pilewski has always ALWAYS given me plenty of time to review and update where necessary. No matter how busy the day is going. If I had to wait longer to see him, it was only because he was doing the same with other patients. I wish every doctor followed his model. He is the best.
Dr. Pilewski is an excellent provider. He is very attentive to my needs and really seems to care about my health.

I could not ask for better care from everyone at the the adult cystic fibrosis center. They all truly go above and beyond for the patients.

Dr. Plewiski is one most thoughtful, caring and compassionate doctors that I have blessed to be treated by.
I live in Boston and get my regular care through Brigham and Women's Hospital with some of the very best doctors and Dr. Pilewski is by far the smartest and most knowledgeable doctor I've ever known. he's simply superior without an ounce of ego. Wish we could recruit him to Boston.
Always a very good experience.
I have never seen Dr. Pelewski until yesterday and I have never been more happy with a first visit with a doctor. All of the doctors are amazing at CF Clinic but I was blown away by Dr. Pelewski. He was so informative and made me feel so comfortable talking to him about all of the issues I have been having pertaining to my health. I hope that I get to see him more often in clinic. Thank you so much Dr. Pelewski for making me feel so good about my course of care when I left from my appointment.
I have been a patient of Dr. Pilewski for several years. He and his staff especially his nurse Margie have been wonderful. I am very fortunate to be under his care.

Absolutely love Dr. Pilewski and my coordinator. Both of them are on the ball, respectful and very good at educating me and encouraging positive behaviors. I think they both should have a raise! if you ever lose either one of them it would be a huge blow to the department
Dr. Pilewski made a special effort to give me an appointment on a day other than his routine appointment day due to may travel and dialysis needs.
All very good experiences

Doctors and nurses are very easy to talk to and show real concern for me. I would never go anywhere else. UPMC gave me my life back.
Shannon is an excellent coordinator and Dr Pilewski is tops!
As usual, Dr. Pilewski and staff were very good, very professional, and very friendly. I wish my appointment would start closer to the scheduled time but I understand the doctor must spend time with earlier patients.
