wait time in waiting room alone was over 1 hour. perhaps this could be addressed while still providing exceptional care during exam? TY

Good experience with Dr. Hogan and Monique.
Everyone is always great!
would highly recommend anyone, definitely family members to the care providers. The Dr was exceptional! The other team members were also impressive
Dr. Hogan was very caring, explained my future surgery in great detail, and gave me detailed information on what I am to expect after surgery.
showed interest in my comcerns
The only problem was getting the initial appointment for the fractured toes and ankle-it took 13 days and this was after a couple conversations. Otherwise, care is good.
My only complaint was the waiting. My appointment was at 9:15 and I didn't see the doctor until 10:10. I was seen by a Physicans assistant but not allowed to leave until I spoke with the doctor and that made my waiting almost an hour. To many patients had the same time slot and he can't be everywhere at once. Not to happy.
Mac Hogan and team are 1st class!
We had concerns in response time and appointments made earlier this year - The provider and staff seemed to be overwhelmed with too many patients and the care for my child was not sufficient. However, the response and appointment made in the past 3 months has shown great improvement and our satisfaction with the care has definitely amplified.
I can't say enough good things about Dr. Hogan, his resident physicians, and his staff! Everyone was courteous and pleasant. Dr. Hogan is not only an excellent surgeon, but a very compassionate human being.

Prompt, professional, and detailed. I highly recommend Dr. Hogan. If I could see him for issues beyond my orthopedic needs I absolutely would.
Dr. Hogan is the best orthopedic surgeon! I would highly recommend him to anyone that I know! I have in fact recommended him to a few people already. He has helped me so well through two ankle surgeries and he has the best bedside manner.
I injured the ankle Dr Hogan did surgery on. I was very upset about being injured then when he told me I needed to be in a boot and non weight bearing for 4 weeks I broke down and started crying. He hugged me and said we'll get through this together. He asked why I was so upset and I told him I had a important photography job to do on Wednesday. He said I could walk on my ankle on Wednesday but still have to wear the boot. He truly cares about his patients!
top notch provider
Extremely compassionate; handled an additional issue that resulted in tremendous pain relief
We drove 4 hours to see Dr. Hogan and were so glad we did. He explained his thought process in a way that gave us great confidence in his diagnosis.
Dr. Hogan explained in detail my injury and spent time answering all of my questions. He explained what I was looking at in my x-Ray. He asked me various times if I had any other concerns or questions. He really made me feel comfort with his concern and explanation of diagnosis and treatment. I have already recommended him to a friend.
Dr. Hogan is wonderful! He listens to what you have to say and answers any questions you have as though he has all the time in the world and you are his only patient! I would go back to him in a heartbeat!

He was thorough and made sure the problem was taken care. He ordered numerous xrays to be sure the fracture was healed and recommended physical therapy when it wasn't functioning properly. We checked in every month or so to discuss progress.

Dr.Hogan is an excellent physician and surgeon. He's very caring and down to earth.
Dr. Hogan and the P.I. were wonderful. I trusted them completely and this my first visit to them.
I felt great visit due to level of providers explain the problem, possible solutions, and future expectations. They gave me website to review about my situation, additional support inserts, and helped me use the current support better.

Dr was very helpful. I saw hi for a second opinion.
Dr. Hogan and the Orthopedic team were very courteous and expedited our appointment. So, we were not dissatisfied with the longer than 15 minute wait, and were most appreciative of the expedited appointment.
Dr Hogan is great he listened to me and answered all my questions
Dr. Hogan is very professional and I was very pleased with my office visit. He is a very compassionate, caring person.
Dr. Hogan was very kind and understanding of a personal request to use a removable splint instead of a cast during my post-op time due to my claustrophobia. It is also comforting that he is able to joke and smile with me about such a request. He read my personality well.
I very much appreciated how Dr. Hogan listened and acknowledged the history of my injured ankle and past treatments I've tried. He was extremely knowledgeable and generally great at what he does which made me feel really comfortable with my care.
I have always received the best care when visiting Dr. Hogan. The nurses in his staff are very considerate and provide you with great care.
macalus hogan is great- saved me from surgery
Until now I had lost faith in most orthopedists and many physicians. He was both logical and willing to talk on my level, as opposed to speaking on an 8th grade level. He made sense and appeared very knowledgeable. His explanation of the surgery was both logical and well informed. I will not be getting a second opinion as originally planned. He is a very intelligent and I assume capable physician.
UPMC facilities are state of the art as well as their employees. thank you!
The provider asked if I had any questions, when I did he was no where to be found. He spent all of five minutes with me. He kind of brushed me off, when he did try to explain where the incision would be made, his attention was drawn away from the noise outside in the hall... then he left not finishing his sentence. I felt very unimportant to him, why would I want him to perform surgery on me.
Dr. Hogan is a kind, considerate and passionate doctor, he made me feel like he cares about me and the way we handle my healthcare.
The over all professionalism of this office from the front desk, to the medical assistant has been wonderful. I am having surgery to repair my right Achilles tendon and very nervous. The secretary Sharon has been more than just a secretary almost made me feel as if I personally knew her. I would recommend this office to any and everyone. The staff has been nothing but caring and exceptional. I wish more offices would adopt alot of the human touch that this office has showed me and my family. Blessings to them all
excellent and very knowledgable Dr.
This was my first experience with a UPMC Orthopedic Surgeon and I was very impressed with my treatment as a patient; plus, the professionalism of the doctor and his staff.
Professional, courteous, succinct, knows his stuff. Although it was a busy day around the office, Dr. Hogan still took the time to answer my questions.
my experience was excellent. I have already recommended him to others.
Provider answered my questions about my concerns and provided possible solutions
I was a walk-in at the urgent care clinic with a broken bone in my foot. Dr. Hogan was very kind in getting me in to his office the same day and I appreciate his staff making the effort to get me in as soon as possible.
approachable, listened to me (which is rare in MDs)
Efficient and interested. I found this provider and PA and staff to have done a great job in an extremely friendly manner.
Answered all questions. Explained why he ordered the tests he did.
