I would go to Dr. Rogale for all my health care needs if I could. He is very thorough and explains my conditions to my understanding. I would recommend him to anyone
I would not recommend Dr. Rogal to anyone.
Dr is great. He spends time with you and listens to you.
this was my first visit to this practice. The office was very busy. receptionist area staff were very nice, helpful. X-ray tech was pleasant, efficient and caring. when I got see the doctor he was quick, to the point and explained what was wrong and what to do. he asked if I understood twice. I didn't like the fact as he was talking to me he was also dictating his notes, this was a bit confusing to me as I wasn't sure half the time who he was talking to. he may need to do this to get through the patients, so maybe he should see not as many.
Dr. Rogal deserves the highest praise! As an Orthopedic Specialist our entire extended family would choose him above anyone else and we have recommended him many, many times.
best care I could ask for
everything was very well organized. All staff was friendly and cooperative. I would always recommend this Dr. and upmc. Dr. Rogal is a great orthopedic surgeon,,
Great doctor just to long of wait for appointment.
I was very pleased with my care.
my appt. was for 1:30 - I was taken back at 2:00 - I waited in the exam room until 3:00 with no one showing up - I then went to the nurse's station and ask if I should reschedule my appt. - the MA told me it shouldn't be much longer - I did not realize that the Dr. was standing right next to me on a computer because he didn't say a word to me then - he did come in the room a few minutes later and did not even mention anything about how long I was waiting - I looked out the door at 2:50 and saw the Dr. standing at the same computer - I did not know that he was the Dr. I was scheduled to see
Dr. Rogal has been my doctor for 15 years and has been a very good surgeon
I was taken care of quickly by the staff at the beginning of my visit. I was then put in an exam room where I waited for almost an hour for Dr. Rogal to come in. He was there for 8-10 minutes, asked me about 4 questions about my arm injury, did 3 range of motion exercises and then left. When i asked about his "diagnosis" he got very short with me and said "I just told you 3 times it was........" when in actuality, he never spoke directly to me - just into his dictation machine with a bunch of medical terminology. I had to ask the receptionist at check out to review with me again what the outcome was. Its time for him to retire!
everything is very excellent when it comes to dr. rogals office
this provider is excellent...however the wait time is ridiculous. not just this appointment, but always!
I was very well treated.
I waited at exam room too long and restless.
was taken on time and saw dr. quickly and was on my way.
the wait time is too long. Doctors are scheduling too many patients at s time.
I felt very "cared about" by everyone on the staff, left the office feeling that all of my questions were answered, I was given every opportunity to ask questions and I was made to feel that I was the most important client of the day. I left the office feeling that my medical future was in good hands.
it was a very good experience
dr rogal is wonderful.
I have been a patient of Dr. Michael Rogal for 17-years, I cannot tell you how confident I am in him as a Dr., and how rewarding it is when as a patient, Dr. Rogal remembers everything relative to you and your health, and always asks how your family is! He is amazing!!!
Dr. Rogal is the best ortho doctor in PA. I have seen different doctors but none with the experience and knowledge that Dr. Rogal has. He has helped me through many different problems with osteoarthritis. I travel from Erie just to see him with my problems.
Kind, knowledgeable, eager to help with the problem. The doctor goes above and beyond to help the patient. I am very happy I found him for my orthopedic needs.
Although I amnot an expert on my condition. wasn't happy that more info wasn't provided to solve my problem, other than referring me to a Pain Management doctor, and couldn't get an appt for about a month. I have a lot of respect for Dr. Rogal and I hope his advice will ease my uncomfortable condition.
This is an Orthopedic Surgeon not a PCP. He injected my knees with cortisone.
Care provider was awesome with his knowledge and completely answered my questions. I would really like to call and get some more information from him and his views on certain things that could help or work with being young and active.
I like Dr Rogal. He did surgery on me a number of years ago. I didn't hesitate to make an appt with him on this current issue.
the wait time is awful. 30 minutes in the waiting room and an hour and 20 minutes in the exam room. otherwise DrRogal is awesome
Dr. Rogal is my Orthopedic Dr. I trust him, value his opinion, and travel from FENWICK, ISLAND DE. to see him. my Dr. for years for specific conditions.
I have total respect for Dr. Rogal and his care.
very good care outstanding service.
Dr.Rogal is the tops. Would recommend him always.
all is great just the wait time is terrible
Very good experience. Dr Rogal was able to see me on very short notice
Dr. Rogal is the best provider there is. People complain you have to wait for him, but when you need him he is there for you and will accommodate you. He puts the patient in front of himself. My extended family has treated with him for years. This practice is great from the girls at the front, the staff in the back and the docs!
I was pleased with the time frame I requested for my surgery. The outcome was more favorable than origanally thought. I was happy with the way the doctor interacted with my husband after surgery.
everyone was professional and courteous.
The doctor knows what he is doing. I am very happy that he did my knee replacement surgery last year.
Had my hip replacement on 3/22. Everything went well and everyone was so kink and helpful at UPMC East
My visit took three hours, which I thought was too long, but Dr. Rogal is an excellent doctor, so I have been willing to wait.
Thank you for the care rendered by Dr. Rogal and his staff.
Dr. Rogal is very caring and although sometimes the wait is longer due to other patients needs he never cuts short or hurries your visit. He explained all procedures and what his role is as your doctor and what your role is as his patient. I would recommend his practice....
My whole experience was awesome. Dr. Rogal and his staff were caring and very nice. I was really satisfied.
Our family has gone to Dr. Rogal for over 24 years, we will continue with him as we respect him and he is always doing what is beat for us.
We have had good experiences with the staff at the office
Dr. Rogal was very empathetic and explained what he was going to do. He is an excellent doctor and I have recommended him to my Father who is also a patient. I will continue to recommend him!
Love Dr. Rogal!
I chose Dr Rogal due to a personal relationship. Knowing him as I do im sure many others choose him for that reason also. I read his reviews with the most negative aspect being time spent waiting to be evaluated. Some things are worth waiting for!
Dr.Rogal has an excellent bedside manor! Very friendly and explains everything.
Although I was there longer than I was expecting, I believe it was due to the fact that Dr. Rogal takes his time in explaining results of tests or x-rays and makes sure you understand needed treatment.
Dr. Explained what my situation was and assured me that things will work out in my favor.
First time ever seeing Dr Rogal but if I ever need any orthopedic care in the future I will use him again. He reduced a fracture that ER couldn't. very grateful!
Dr. Rogal and his staff were wonderful
Every one helped. My experience was pleasurable.
Dr. Rogal was very helpful, and made me very confident about my upcoming hip surgery.

Dr. Rogal is professional, brilliant and provides trusted care for his patients
Dr Rogal replaced my right hip 10 years ago and never had a problem. That is the reason I wanted to see him regarding my fracture right ankle. I trust him and knew he would tell me exactly what to do to heal.
very thorough in listening and helping me with my problem
Very happy with dr mike and his staff. I have no complaints

Dr. Rogal takes the time with every patient to make sure they are comfortable and have met their needs. Our family has a great respect for him.
I appreciated having a written diagnosis about possibilities for my care that was given to me by the doctor as I was leaving
Dr. Michael Rogal, was very pleasant, helpful, and courteous through out my whole experience of my total hip replacement. I would definitely give his name to any of my friends and family. He is an excellent doctor. I was so impressed with him. I was very scared going into this, but am very glad I did it, and would not change anything. Dr. Michael Rogal is fantastic. I also treated at the new UPMC Monroeville Hospital as was impressed with the nurses there. Especially, Tracy, who assisted me anytime I needed help. Thank you

Mike Rogal is an absolutely outstanding physician. Extraordinarily competent. and knowledgeable. Caring, compassionate, and brilliant. Always goes "the extra mile". UPMC is incredibly lucky to have him work for them.
always takes excellent care of me and answers any concerns I have if he hasn't already explained everything and makes sure I understand it
Caring interaction with my 90 year old mother. Talked to her directly as well to me (daughter)
Dr. Rogal is the best. I wouldn't even think about going any where else for my orthopedic issues.
Dr.Rogal is the BEST
I was very pleased with the overall care I received while at this location
This was my first visit to Dr Rogal. He is the third orthopedic surgeon I have seen in 4 years. I took a chance after a recommendation from a friend. Wasn't completely satisfied with my current care. I can not express how fantastic my visit was with him!So relieved to finally understand. He spent plenty of time explaing in detail. Also received my diagnosis in writing in the mail a week later. Amazing!!!!
Dr Rogal is the very best.
My husband and I have visited Dr. Rogal's office many times being the parents of three sons. We never had Dr. Rogal always an associate. Dr. Rogal was kind and very efficient. His office was running behind schedule and he still had a sense of humor and took time to answer our questions and concerns. I was very impressed with his professionalism. I was also an emergency being sent to him from UPMC urgicare. I know they fitted me in the best they could on a Monday but our wait was long.
Each Health Care Provider(Receptionist, Lab tech, Doctor etc.) made me feel Comfortable and gave me a sense of confidence that i would receive the best care possible.
Dr Rogal is the best orthopedic surgeon
The doctor is a bit quirky but pleasant as well as very thorough and knowledgeable. I felt confident that I was receiving excellent care.
Dr. Rogal is very detailed and made sure I understood his diagnosis and treatment.
Dr. Rogal always seems to be at the top of his game and has a great personality. Very competent!
Office is very busy and more clinic like at the front. The nurses, Doctor and X-ray staff were definitely warm, knowledgeable and efficient.
Dr. Rogal is awesome. That is why I keep coming back to him over the years.
dr Rogal was very straight to the point and his staff was excellent
