I find Dr. Fasanella to be knowledge about my condition and he will take time to answer my questions and discuss how I can help better my health. As I have helped train doctors in the past in "bedside manner and relating to patients" I think he does a good job.
I like having the Resident Dr interview prior to seeing Dr Fasanella and then they collaborate.
we did wait over an hour in the waiting room and 15 minutes in the exam room which I found out from other patients waiting was because they had no available rooms and some of those patients waited hours in the waiting room
Dr. Fasanella was very helpful and informative. THANKS
Staff very polite, helpful and pleasant.
Dr Fasanella is very attentive and informative.
I am.in the medical field a I have never had a physician take the time to talk to me even giving me medical advice. my PCP and I talked before I made the appointment. she had said you know many sub specialties providers are not very friendly. she was really wrong and I was truly surprised.
I learned a lot.
Doctor was pre occupied with another appointment
Dr. Fosanella was wonderful- listened, explained, together we covered my medical history. Many of these questions are not relevant, as this was my first visit with him and this department at UPMC. never felt like I was being rushed out the door. We concurred on testing, and even today, his staff is very timely in returning messages regarding further testing, explanations, etc. Thank you!
I was especially glad to have a good one-on-one with Dr. Fassenella. Previous times I spoke also with another doctor. By Dr. Fassenella spending longer with me it is giving me a better opportunity for me go get to know my doctor better and for him to get to know me, too. Thanks
seem to really like this dr. he was really interested on whats going on with my stomach and my ipf
Dr Fasanella saved my life. Need I say more?
Very attentive and doesn't rush you through your appointment.
Dr. Fasanella and his team are the greatest providers I have ever experienced. I am grateful for both him and his team and all the time and experience they have shared with me over the years. I would never go anywhere else.
My first meeting with Dr.Fasanella was very positive. He did lab work and prescribed new medication which I hope will reduce some of my health problems.
Doctor was excellent in answering any questions I had. I felt reassured when I left the office and that all my concerns had been addressed.
Dr. Fasanella does an excellent job. He is extremely knowledgeable, passionate, and even compassionate. He is an all-around great provider and a phenomenal specialist!
Dr. Fassanella was a pleasure to visit for this consultation. Informative, focused, concerned and was definitely a 'be here now' professional to explain all the reasons for the consultation.
Dr Fasanella will always be my favorite provider as he goes above and beyond for me. I feel safe putting my life in his hands if I needed to.
Excellent care and respect for patient.
Dr fasanella was very approachable knoweledgeable.. I didnt feel rushed. he listened and answered all my questions in a compressible manner.. showed compassion
I am very respectful of Dr. Fasanella as he spends detailed time with me as a patient and is always very thorough with his questions and in listening to my concerns and questions. I couldn't ask for a better doctor.
The doctor was very good at explaining the problem/situation and what the options are. I appreciate him easing my mind.
Only saw intake nurse Medical updates,BP and weight and spoke only with Dr. Fasenella about my medical needs
Dr Fasanella is the nicest physician I have ever been treated by. He is a gem!
Dr. Fasanella is truly the smartest, most competent, and caring physician I have ever visited. Every visit he educates me more about my condition than the rheumatologists have ever done. I never feel rushed, he answers all questions in depth, and is extremely nice. He is truly an exceptional physician.
Doctor was pragmatic and direct. I thought he was excellent.
I always have a good experience.
This was an initial visit. I was very impressed with the knowledge shown regarding my case. I learned more in one hour about my condition with Dr. Fassenella and his associate that I had previously with post surgery conversations with Cleveland Clinic (where my surgery was conducted).
Dr. Fasanella and his entire staff have always been the utmost best provider and staff I have ever dealt with.
very satisfied on medical decisions needed
everything was fine
The doctor explained how to take the medication in a way that would be more beneficial, something no other doctor has done, even though I have been on this medication for an extended period of time.
Excellent attention from Dr. Fasanella and staff
great provider thorough and quick. I know it's hard to not have trainees see patients but didn't make me feel guilty about it and respected my privacy. very smart. explained things well.
I left feeling like they are gonna find out what the problems I have and that they are gonna help me get better
Finally Found a gastro that listened to me. Dr. Fasanella is a gem! He read my health history BEFORE coming in the exam room. I recently moved to Pittsburgh and have a more difficult diagnosis of hypersensitivity pnuemonitis and will be evaluated for lung transplant. Dr. Fasanella demonstrated his willingness to work with other medical specialists, something missing from my previous health care providers. Loved this guy!
just feel lack of cocern due to health insurance although staff and Dr seemed very nice
Dr. Fasanella is always on time for his appointments and stays as long as needed to answer any questions or concerns I might have concerning my condition. He never hurries the appointment and is always concerned with me as a patient.
I have no complaints about Dr. Fasanella or the staff.
My experience was very good. The entire team was accommodating and respectful.
very caring and respectful
I have always had great care and I love Dr Fasanella his understanding, concern, care that he gives his patients.
this was a follow up appointment and I'm very pleased with the care I received and information I was given.
