Dr Fajt is great. She has helped me to breathe better, and have less asthma attacks.
Dr. Fajit and her team are excellent!!!
I really appreciate Dr. Fajt's knowledge and concern for my medical issues, She is very patient and sensitive to my medical needs.
Dr. Fajit is very well prepared when she walks in to the exam room. She clearly has read the notes in my chart and is up to date on the status of my health. She reviews the details of the visit before I leave, making sure I'm clear of what the next step are. I couldn't be happier with the care I receive from her.
Dr. Fajt was focused, interested in the details of my history and my condition, very knowledgeable, and established a good plan forward. I was very impressed with Dr. Fajt and impressed with her commitment to help me.
Dr. Fajt was so attentive, competent, and took her time to explain things to me. she also has great interpersonal skills and sense of humor. so gla she's my provider
great dr, well informed and on top of latest medical trends related to her field
Dr. Fajt takes your concerns seriously and is not discusses options with you while never talking down to the patient. She definitely knows the value of a good doctor-patient relationship.
My experiences with Dr. Fajt, the nurses, and all office staff have all been great!
the wait time was ridiculous. we we're taken back quickly. After approximately 20 min a fellow came into room n took information. then she left and we probably waited another 25 min at least until Dr came in....and board in waiting room said "on time". we had never had to wait like this and caused me to be late for work
I had a very good visit with Dr Fajt. Everyone was very profesional and very kind. Thank you.
excellent provider. she is so intelligent that I need few seconds to process and formate my questions after she provides information.
Dr. Merritt L Fajt was talking to me about my allergy shoot questions, she is a very good doctor.
Dr Fajt is an excellent doctor. I've been dealing with multiple health issues and she is professional and direct. She explains things thoroughly, never rushes me and does all that with a very friendly attitude.
Great doctor! !!!
I was very pleased with my care and the concern that the doctors had. The office staff was very kind and friendly.
always been a pleasure and comfort to receive services there. Dr. Fajt has been extremely kind and thorough in her work. I must admit she is one of the first asthma specialists who completed a very thorough history of my asthma, validated my symptoms, and provide an adequate diagnosis of my condition. She has consistently cared about my symptoms and treatment. I have felt extremely thankful to receive treatment from her.
Dr Fajt was outstanding. Very professional and caring Doctor. I appreciate a lot her care and concerns for my health.
Dr. Fajt is the best... She continues to be cognizant of my care and issues and is always quick to offer solutions and options for everyday issues.
The entire staff, from doctors, to nurses, folks who check in and out, medical assistants, everyone involved were a pleasure to work with. Their kindness, care, and thoroughness helped me alleviate an issue I've had for over 30 years within 2 visits. My hat goes off to the entire team.
Was very pleased with the amount of time that was spent with me as a patient and the explanation of options that were available to me to help treat my current and long term allergy issues - dr was very knowledgeable and helpful, along with understanding my concerns and answering all questions i had
professional, knowledgeable, pleasant. outstanding physician in every way that matters.
Very glad that I found Dr. Fajt on the internet. She seems to be very knowledgeable about my problems. I have RA, and my immune system is comprised from taking biological meds. I'm sure that she will get me on the right track.
Overall felt confident of care and guidance provided.
saw me quickly and very attentive
She is fantastic!
Care was exceptional.
I have seen 3 different providers for the same complaint. All of which wanted to provide temporary relief for what may or may not be a long term issue. I felt as though my complaint was addressed completely differently this time with looking to gain knowledge with the possible underlying causes as well as provide treatment with an aim to long term relief.
The provider was friendly, knowledgeable, listened to all my questions and provided answers without making me feel rushed. She went through different options I had to determine which would be the best for me.
Great "bedside" manner. Proceeded in a reasonably cautious manner. Stated expectations, concerns, pertinent information in easily understood terms.
I had a very informative and encouraging visit and I'm excited to begin a new treatment plan.
Dr Fajt has been excellent in explaining my health issues. She is very caring.
Dr. Fajt is a very knowledgeable and kind. I message her through My UPMC not expecting answers to my question much less a message back from her in less than 24 hours but to my surprise she responded in less the 12 hours of my message sent to her and her staff had a appointment for me the following day. I would also like to mention that that I had not seen her in 2 years and I felt I was reaching out hoping she or someone could help and she did just that for me. I respect a Dr that has a plan something you can see and understand and following the proper chain of trying to diagnose your problem.
Very good experience. Everyone very knowledgeable and no delays - like clockwork from check-in to end of visit.
I thought both the doctor and resident were very professional and helpful.
The Dr. and the intern with her were very thorough and she definitely seemed knowledgeable as well as very excited about what she did. I was very happy with her so far as a specialist. She spent lots of time with me and asked many questions. Overall very satisfied.
Very knowledgeable and caring!
I have the utmost respect for Dr. Fajt. I always get the first appointment in the morning on Fridays because I know she is really busy. She is always on-time and is very kind. I've been going to her for four years because she's really helped contain my allergies and manage my asthma. The thing I like most about her is that she actually looks at you when she's talking to you and listens. She has an excellent memory and can remember my medical history even though she has hundreds of patients. I also like that she teaches and stays up-to-date with her profession.
