Dr. Kanicki took the time to go over and explain everything to me with regard to my migraines. He took as long as we needed and didn't make me feel like he was in a rush.
I'm impressed by the ease with which Dr. Kaniecki was able to reach a diagnosis, which I feel is accurate. He definitely has a protocol for gathering information and can explain medical issues and procedures clearly to laymen.
Dr. Kaniecki was quick but not rushed, very knowledgable and very kind and respectful. Fantastic physician.
The receptionist at Dr. Kaniecki's office was excellent. My son had a terrible migraine and she offered anything she could do to help - ice, spoke with him softly and just provided comfort. I've never seen anybody go out of their way like that and it definitely brought him at ease. So much that he fell asleep in my arms until Dr. Kaniecki called him in. Dr. Kaniecki was so kid friendly and exceptionally thorough. He even gave my son the time he needed to prepare for a shot of Toradol for relief. Outstanding service.
dr Kaniecki and his staff are always professional and have had no issues at this visit or in the past. I wish I had know and been under his care when I first new of my cluster condition. I hope I am on my way to the end of these awful things. a shout out to Kimberley also.
I have been doctoring for migraine headaches for all of my adult life. I am so appreciative of the care I have received at this office, it has been life changing!
Dr Kaniecki and his staff are great!!
Dr Kaniecki is a very professional, thorough and respectful physician. He is always very punctual as well. it's refreshing.
Excellent, thorough appointment.
Always very satisfied with my visits with Dr Kaneicki!
I really appreciate and value Dr Kaniecky and his staff!
excellent, caring Dr.
The doctor and office staff could not be more professional and helpful. I am so please that I was referred to Dr. Kaniecke. Every visit to this office has been a pleasant experience.
office staff are very difficult to work with when calling in with needs for medication.
For thirty years, Dr. Kaniecki has providing outstanding care to me.Chronic migraine is life-altering. Dr. Kaniecki and his associates and staff have ALWAYS provided me with the most professional, thorough, and sensitive care. I am so incredibly grateful to have found this practice and do not know how I could have gotten through so many years of pain without them. Dr. Kaniecki deserves one hundred stars for his knowledge Ian's intelligence and superb bedside manner. He should be a model for all doctors! I can think of o other doctor that I hold i such high regard. To me, Dr. Kaniecki is a lifeline!
I really like the fact that he listens to what I have to say and help me figure things out
Dr K and his PA listened carefully to my daughter's headache history. Asked alot of questions and were both very caring and experienced. We left with a plan for future headaches and feeling better about having a medication that can help her.
Very compassionate, asked me if I had any questions, which I did, and listened attentively.
Wonderful experience. Went above and beyond to fit both myself and my daughter in at same time.
the doctor listened to my concerns and took his time explaining.
Excellent doctor; thorough review of medical history; all patient questions/concerns addressed; comfortable office environment; appointment on time. Thank you!
Excellent Doctor. It takes us 3 hrs and 45 minutes to see Dr. Kaniecki. Definitely worth the drive for the care Dr. Kaniecki provides.
Dr Kaniecki has truly been a savior in correcting my migraines. Before he became my doctor, I was down for 20 days out of a month. Since seeing him, I may have a handful a year. Thank you so much Dr Kaniecki!
Very impressed that the doctor himself called me in from the waiting room and I remained in his care until he turned me over to the scheduler for my next appointment. He was courteous and pleasant, and made me feel that he not only understood my condition, but that he felt he would be able to help me. The only concern I have is that there was a lengthy wait to get an appointment - but he was well worth the wait.
Would highly recommend Doctor and office .
everything is slways good there
dr kaneieki is an excellent dr and I recommend him to anyone I can! he is truly caring and has helped me so much

Dr. Kaniecki is just great!

Everyone on Dr K team were just wonderful. I felt like I finally found the absolute best doctor to help me manage these chronic migraines.
The doctor always listens to me and explains his diagnosis thoroughly. I am extremely satisfied with his patient care.
excellent - Dr. Kineicky
I had a really great experience. I arrived a half hour early and was taken immediately and out of the office by the time my appointment was supposed to start!
Superb listener and communicator.
Excellent visit. Extremely helpful.
I was expecting to have a difficult visit because the provider was recommended so highly and I had to wait 6 months for the appointment but I was pleasantly surprised at the level of care and professionalism I received. The provider was gentle, informative, patient and engaging. I have been in pain for about a year I am thrilled that I have a plan of action to try now.
Dr Kaniecki is a fabulous doctor, and I am so grateful for his time, concern, attention, and care.
1 of the best Dr's I have and someone that actually listened to my needs and helped
This doctor was the best I have seen. He was on time, friendly, treated me with respect, and instead of being greeted by a nurse and brought in to another exam room to wait an hour for the doctor - the doctor actually greeted me and brought me to exam room. No waiting or anytime. Best experience I have had in a doctor's office.
I was extremely happy with this appointment. I was taken quickly and was satisfied with my doctor's attention to my medical problem and history.
Dr. Kaniecki is incredibly accommodating, approachable, easy to work with. He fits me in as needed for urgent care and is incredibly helpful and reachable. he is so knowledgeable and personable.
Dr Kaniecki is the most compassionate, knowledgeable and caring doctor that I have ever met. His colleagues say he is the best in the business and I agree!! He has helped me control my headaches like no other has!
Dr. Kaniecki is a great doctor! He always asks my daughter a lot of questions and really listens to her during the appointments. She never feels rushed when talking to him. He has been managing her migraines since she was 13 (she's 19 now) and every visit has helped.
good experience overall. loved that Dr. Kaniecki manually wrote notes regarding his recommendations and then gave me that paper to take with me. wow! wish more doctors would do this! He was very efficient yet I did not feel rushed!
I have been a patient of Dr. Kaniecki for several years and he has consistently treated me and my condition with care and the utmost respect. Excellent doctor.
Dr Kaniecki is the best. Quick in, easy to talk to, quick out. I look forward to our once a year follow-ups.
I have suffered from migraines for many years and have been under the care of the best doctor in the country , Robert Kaniecki MD . He is knowable and caring.
Dr. Kanicki always provides excellent care. He displays a very courteous bedside manner and thorough assessment. I feel confident with his recommendations and comfortable asking him questions
Dr K has always been helpful to me and continues to try to improve my problem w headaches.
Dr K is an amazing doctor!!! I'm so thankful I was told about him!!!
Dr. Kaniecki is caring and knowledgeable and very personable. He is the best!!!
Both the doctor and staff are awesome at this facility. Despite the very heavy workload, everyone is respectful and helpful.
I love Dr. Kaneicki. He always listens and makes good suggestions. I always learn when I am there. He creates an atmosphere where I am not afraid to ask "dumb" questions.
dr kaniecki is the only migraine doctor in Pittsburgh that gets results!
the doctor did not listen to me as far as explaining why I was there to see him. he did not address the fact that my migraines are due to a neck injury, he just stuck to his protocol and insisted that they were due to a chemical imbalance. when I tried to help the doctor understand that I had already been treating my migraines for over a year with my neurologist and I was seeing this doctor for a second opinion, he did not seem to care and just stuck to his agenda. I did not feel heard or understood and felt as though my appointment with this doctor was a waste of time. he had an agenda before I even walked into his office and he didn't care to hear my issues or understand the nature of my migraines.
Dr. Kanieicki is a great neurologist who listens and is empathetic to his patients. will try any measure to ensure your migraines are maintained and pain free
This experience was the best I've ever had with any doctor. Dr Kaneicki was thoughtful, thorough, took the time to explain things to me my old neurologist never did. My visit was extremely educational and helped me understand my migraines in a way that had never been articulated to me. He didn't treat me as though he sees hundreds if not thousands of patients. Dr. Kaneicki focuses only on me as a patient and showed genuine empathy and care to ensure I was getting the best care possible.
I can't say enough great things about Dr. Kaniecki, he's wonderful and has been for the 30 years I've seen him. He helped me through a very trying time in my life. He's what every doctor should be.
Dr Kaniecki is an excellent physician and I have recommended him to coworkers.
Dr. Kaniecki is incredibly knowledgeable and very helpful in understanding my migraines and our treatment plan. His practice is highly specialized and very much in demand, however I always feel that Dr. Kaniecki is fully present in our visits and never rushed. This feels very rare in medicine these days, and it's very much appreciated.
Dr. Kaniecki is an exceptional physician.
Dr Kaniecki is the best of the best. He answers questions thoroughly and listens carefully.
He is a wonderful doctor and I would never go to anyone else for my headaches.
Overall my experience with office is the best experience I've ever had with a doctors office. From the staff to my doctor, everyone is kind and caring, and very knowledgeable.
Always a good experience.
Dr Kanieki is always patient and willing to take the time necessary with his patients. He takes the time to answer all questions.
great doctor- alwYs listens and offers treatment options to relieve headaches and migraines
Dr. Kaniecki is an outstanding health care professional! I have been a patient of his for many years now, and have highly recommended him to others. Not only do I respect him for his boundless knowledge, but his ability to listen and understand the concerns of an issue makes him truly remarkable.
This office is the BEST! Dr. Kaniecki always answers all of my questions and listens to my concerns concerning my son! The girls who answer the phones are also wonderful. Especially Danielle- she always gets back to me the same day and is very understanding with any concerns I have.
excellent doctor an d person
I was impressed and surprised that the doctors came out to the waiting area and called patients back themselves. It was such a relief and unique experience to not repeat myself and feel shuffled through another step. More providers should do this.
dr. Kaniecki is the best!
Dr. Kaniecki is incredibly caring and thorough, during appointments.
best dr i ever had... very thorough!
I drive over an hour each way and have done so for 25+years. a better doctor,office staff I know I'll never find again I would follow Dr Kaenicki anywhere for health and migraines and his staff is always outstanding I've never had a bad experience with anyone in that office
I absolutely love Dr. Kaniecki as my headache care provider. Have been seeing him over 10 years and he, basically has given me my quality of life back. I appreciate his exceptional intelligence, professionalism and compassion for his patients. He is "always" on time though very busy and always gives you the time you need for your appointment. I recommend him to anyone who tells me of their issues with migraines.
I felt very comfortable with Dr. Kaniecki. He explained the cause and treatment plan thoroughly and listened to my concerns. He took my concerns into account when coming up with a treatment plan. He was very professional and I appreciated his explanation of what my symptoms mean and how we can treat them. I was very pleased with the examination and entire process of yesterday's appointment.
Love going to that office - everyone is friendly at all the desks - at every step you need
the best MD I've ever had
Excellent. Thurral and very personable.
Dr. Kaniecki is very warm while still being extremely professional and always considerate of my concerns. He is someone that listens without patronizing his patient. I have recommended him to many friends, family, and strangers!
I always have a good office visit.
Dr. Kaniecki is the best! I always feel that he listens to me, takes other aspects of my health and lifestyle into consideration, and I always feel like he spends enough time with me.
I have been treated by many doctors for my migraines and Dr. Kaniecki has taken the most time in caring and explaining the types of migraines and the treatment plan options! I felt assured leaving his office.
Even though he couldn't help me with my problem, the Dr did explain why i was having my issues and referred me to someone who possible could. He is a very good Dr who respects his patients. He gave ample time to explain the situation. I would refer him to anyone who would be having a neuro problem.
The doctor was very friendly and kind. He knew immediately the cause of my headaches. He took a lot of time to talk about the issue and to explain my cat and MRI scans. I was provided with good suggestions.
Dr. Kaniecki is the most compassionate doctor ever. He takes his time and explains everything to you, being a nurse I appreciate the time he takes with me. He is willing to listen and change things and work to prevent issues for you to be functional.
Dr. Kaniecki and his staff set the bar for exceptional medical care experiences. He inspires confidence that I can impact my health through behaviors and use Rx if and as needed to control pain. He is smart, compassionate and helps his patients understand complex medical issues with ease. I am so grateful for Dr. Kaniecki!
Dr. Kanieki is a patient and caring man. He is concerned about his patients and any problems that he/she has, not just our headaches. He would be my pcp if he was not a specialist.
Dr. Kaniecki is an excellent provider. I previously saw him about 5 years ago and I had moved out of state and then moved back to the area. Because it had been so long since I saw him, I was considered a new patient. Since the time of my last visit, the office moved to electronic charts and I was now going by my married name instead of my maiden name. Dr. Kaniecki knew exactly who I was and most of my past history despite not having that information. He explained everything clearly to me and we came up with a great plan of action for my care in the next 3 months. He is an excellent provider and I would recommend him to anyone who needs a neurologist.
Always good. Dr. Kaniecki knows me very well after seeing me for many years.
I appreciate that the doctor is always on time for his patients; there is never a long wait time to see him or your scheduled appointment.
This office and Dr. Kaniecki is an excellent provider. I feel lucky to have them treating me for migraines. I would recommend them without hesitation to anyone.
He only made eye contact once or twice during the appointment and spent the majority of the time staring at his computer and typing. I did not feel like he listened to me as much as he should have.
dr kiniecki is excellent
Dr. Kaniecki is an outstanding doctor. He's very passionate about helping his patients improve their migraine situations.
Dr Kaneki was friendly, efficient very reassuring and provided what I was hoping for. He validated me as a person with sometimes sever headaches and gave me hope that medication can prevent me from missing work because of them.
this provider is excellent. he always spends ample time with me, addresses me concerns, and explains things well.
Dr. Kaniecki is a very caring and patient provider. i would recommend him to anyone that has migraines since he is extremely knowledgeable and helpful.
I believe Dr Kaniecki is one of the most concerned doctors, about their patients I've been involved with. Its hard to say enough about his level of concern and care for his patients in my experience. On my last appointment I had my 6 year old daughter tag along due to a snow day at school. Dr Kaniecki even spoke to her and made her feel conformable in a Dr's office, a place where children don't generally like to be.
dr kanicki is the best doctor i have ever had. he is very detail oriented and really gets to the root of my medical problems. he will not stop until he figures out what is causing the problem.
He was very nice, respectful, explained everything thoroughly & provided a lot of insight to my issue. I felt relieved by the end of the visit because had previously lost hope from any help with my problem. But he shed light on so much for me.
This office always provides me with excellent care! I appreciate Dr. Kaniecki's understanding and care!
Dr. Kaniecki is a fabulous Doctor! he is extremely knowledgeable and listens to his patients' concerns.
Been seeing this provider for 10 years. My health has dramatically improved as a result of the care provided. Care has allowed for control of a debilitating chronic medical condition.
the best doctor ive ever seen. very easy to talk to. gladly explained things until i fully understood and escorted me to where i needed to be so i wasnt lost since this was my first visit to that building. genuinely cared about my health.
Very knowledgeable about my conditions and very thorough. I was allowed to ask questions and didn't feel rushed.
Dr. Kaniecki is the best there is for headache-related issues.
dr kaniecki is wonderful
Everything excellent. Dr. Gleason and Dr. Kanieki are excellent
Very attentive, friendly and helpful
Dr.Robert Kenickie is the Very Best...
The doctor saw me right away and spent adequate time listening to/assessing my symptoms and provided a clear plan for my care.
excellent doctor I couldn't be more pleased he address all my concerns and is very knowledgeable
I travel a great distance by airplane to see this provider. He and his staff always go out of their way to accommodate my schedule. This time, Dr. Kaniecki used half of his lunch hour in order to see me in time for me to make the trip back to the airport for my flight.
Dr. Kaniecki is one of the best doctors that I have even visited. He always explains things clearly, listens carefully, seems genuinely interested in what I have to say, and does not seem to be rushing me out the door. He gives positive reinforcement for my improvement in healthy habits and gives good tips and encouragement for further lifestyles changes. Additionally, I thought that the cashier, Sheila, was extremely helpful and provided step-by-step directions how to request a discount and reimbursement from my health insurance, as well as how to use the validation card for the parking garage. Overall, the office visit was a very positive experience!
Dr Kaniecki is an excellent physician, the office is well run and efficient, yet friendly and approachable. Care is given for the comfort of the patient, even with the lights being low in the waiting room to accommodate those with headaches. Dr. Kaniecki is thorough, caring, knowledgeable regarding my history and overall excellent!
Dr. Kaniecki is an excellent doctor. His care is the best of any doctor that I have seen. His Headache Clinic is top notch. They respond to health issues quickly. It's great to know that help is a phone call away.
I am completely impressed by Dr. Kaniecki's willingness to listen to my concerns. He is caring and knowledgeable. I also enjoyed his congenial ways. GREAT JOB!
Dr. Kanieki has always been great to work with. Very professional, listens, and offers helpful solutions. I would highly recommend him to everyone!
HE IS AWESOME! Saved me from constant headache.
Dr. Kaniecki is not just a Dr he becomes your friend. The deal here is, he has thousands of patients, but he meets and greets you at the door, reviews your records, knows you, interacts with you, has a personality and a super smart BRAIN, because he is not aggressive with meds you do not need, but works to achieve a personal stability that you can live with and manage. He listens, repeats, and addresses concerns. He treats 3/5 in my family because those 3 all have migraines. Dr. Kaniecki is top notch, first class and completely delivers. If I am sick when I am away, I call in, headaches are handled (rebound). There has NEVER been a time I needed this Dr. and he has not been available. Truthfully I LOATHE most of our Dr's because their attitudes towards their patient is 'their attitude' they are not there for the patient and symptoms, DR. K is. I can talk to him about any illness from bowel to whatever and not feel embarrassed because his mannerism is such. Kudos to everything he does for myself, and my children and I feel blessed to have this Dr in our portfolio.
Dr K has always been very responsive to my problems and attempts to find solutions to them; his staff is also very helpful too.
I appreciate the office staff getting me into see Dr.Kaniecki as I live in Florida and had been a patient of his 20 years ago. I have the highest respect and confidence in him and l was so pleased to see him and get his advice.
Dr Kaniecki is a brilliant and compassionate doctor. He really listens and understands my medical needs and works very well with me .
Dr.Kaneiki is excellent. My son is getting better and we have some treatment options that are working.
Dr. Kaniecki always listens to my concerns, and answers all my questions.
I can't say enough positive things about Dr. Kaniecki or his staff. I will continue to see Dr. Kaniecki for eternity. He is one of the best doctors I have ever had and am so thankful I was introduced to him.
All was very good. always is. I see Dr Kaniecki once a year. Best there is.
I am blessed to have Dr. Kanieki as my neurologist.
Dr Kaniecki is always very informative and caring. He explained everything in a way that I could understand. He is an excellent doctor.
Dr Kaniecki is an excellent doctor! I have been going to him for many years. I am so appreciative of his expertise knowledge. Hehas given me excellent migraine care for many years He is absolutely the best doctor.

I love Dr. Kaniecki I have referred my friends and family to him. Such a caring doctor!
dr Kaniecki has treated me for migraine headaches for 20 years. he's the very best
best doctor I have ever had hands down. he is vreat
I can't say enough about Dr. Kaniecki because he has been a godsend to me. I asked him a few years ago when he was just seeing the new patients, that I wanted to continue to see him. So I do. There isn't a nurse; it is just him. He greets me at the door to walking out with me. I have no problem when he has medical students with him. however. They are lucky to be there. I had complained once about one of his staff; he had already dealt with it. He is amazing!
Dr. Kaniecki and everyone I have encountered in his office are wonderful. They are efficient and extremely polite and caring. This is by far one of the best doctor's offices I have encountered.
very good visit, I felt that Dr. Kinicki really took his time and was thorough in gaining information regarding my issues.
Dr made me feel very comfortable, and explained the issues that I am having and the reasons for them
Really understood my condition and took the time to listen to my history. talked to me in terms I could understand as to my treatment and goals.
this was the first time I've ever visited a Doctor Who I felt like actually listen to me. I've struggled with the same issues for years and when I left that office I left with Hope. I honestly can't put into words how much that means to me. Thankyou!
This was the first time I have seen Dr. Robert Kaniecki. I was so impressed with the care and concern he took.
the dr and his staff are to notch I would not change a thing
Everyone in this physician office (including Dr. Kaniecki) is wonderful-they are always very professional, kind and compassionate.
Dr Kinicki is an excellent physician. I see him for control of migraine headaches. His expertise has been able to limit these debilitating headaches for me so that I barely notice I have them anymore. I have recommended Dr Kinicki to everyone I know who is suffering with migraines. I am so lucky to have access to a world class expert in neurology.
Dr Kinicki is wonderful.
very please with my neurologist Dr. K I feel he is the best in his field I'm not sure how to spell his name
Was very happy and surprised that Dr. Kaniecki came to get me from the waiting room and spent so much time explaining my condition.
This was one of the best experiences I have received from a care provider. Dr. Kaniecki diagnosed and answered all of my questions concerning my condition in a very thoughtful and clear way.
I wish there was a n/a choice because that would apply to a fair number of my answers. Dr. K doesn't seem to have a nurse assistant with him, maybe some office staff. Maybe I don't know what the difference is. I like that the appointments are in his actual working office, and not an exam room a lot. It makes me feel like he's taking the appointment seriously, and not cruising from one exam room to the other every 5 minutes.
Dr. Kaniecki listened to everything that I had to say and thoroughly explained the causes and outcomes of the medical condition that I have.
The doctor was very thorough and explained everything in a way that was clear and understandable; he gave me and my family hope for my illness
He was wonderful with me , very caring and helpful .
"Best of the Best" as always. Never have I had an unpleasant visit!
Wonderful! Listens and responds to all questions and concerns. Explains in language that is understandable. Doesn't make you feel rushed.
In my many years of migraine headaches, over 35, this is the most support and relief that I have ever had to control my symptoms. I am very grateful!
Dr. Kaniecki and his office always take great care of me. They have a full understanding of my concerns, and make me feel very comfortable in the office. Also, Dr. Kaniecki is very responsive to questions I have sent via the portal. I always hear back the same day. I truly appreciate the care that is given to me.
I've sen this doctor for years very pleased
I have been seeing Dr. Kaniecki for over 20 years! I will not go to anyone else. He has changed my life.
very good support for my on going issue. The doctor is always available when I am having a tuff day I get to discuss a plan after I leave the office .
Best neurological exam I ever had. Great doctor.
dr is the man
Dr. Kaniecki, Kimberly and the entire staff are absolutely wonderful.in over two decades of being their patient, I have received excellent and compassionate care.without this practice, I don't think I could have handled all these many many years of migraines.I feel truly blessed that they are always there for me!
Dr Kaenicki and his staff are always efficient and courteous. he us an outstanding doctor and if I call my response is immediate
Excellent down to earth doctor that is truly cares about what you have to say.
dr Kineiki was kind enough to see my while I was in town for my son who is being treated for a concussion with Dr. Collins. The incredible care he has received in every way inspired me to try a doctor for my migraines. dr Kineiki was incredibly kind, thorough, open to non prescription drug type methods of relief/holistic, and so informative.
Always compassionate and empathetic. Makes me feel like every question I ask is important and assures me we'll get good results. Never rushes through appointment or makes me feel insignificant.
The physician and I always have a "conversation" about my chronic condition and therefore I feel respected and thoroughly informed as to my situation.
Dr. Kaniecki is an amazing provider/physician!
very nice and thorough doctor!
I did not interact with any Nurse Or Nurse assistant. I have the same provider in the head center for 10 years he is excellent
this physician is the best neurological doctor around. hands down.
all good. dr. kaniecki one of the best drs. I have ever had
Dr. Kinecki is a great doctor and it took me over 10 years to find him. After numerous years spent with doctors stating I have migraines, he was able to identify them as cluster headaches and treats them accordingly.
Dr. Kaniecki always spends time with me and checks my progress of my headaches over the years since my first appointment with him years ago. He also meets all my other health needs.
Dr. Kaniecki is the best physician. I have been his patient for about 20 years and he is always taking his time with each of his patients to answer their questions and concerns. I have never felt rushed during an appointment, nor have I ever been made to feel like I am "just a number" at his office. He truly has the best staff around and he's definitely in tune with what is going on with his patients. I wish more of my doctors had the same outlook as he does when it comes to patient care!
Dr Kaneicki is the best.
very attentive, responsive to questions. overall great staff!
Dr Kaniecki is the only neurologist I will every see!
everything was good
When waiting in reception, it was Dr. Kaneicki himself who came to the waiting room to call me back. It is nice that he doesn't perceive himself as too important or busy for that small gesture.
Best doctor and staff I have ever had.
Dr. Kaniecki is an excellent physician. He listens to my health problems and works to find a solution to a very distressing situation with my migraines. He's a very caring and professional Doctor.
Dr. Kaniecki is an excellent physician and he and his staff are very responsive to my migraine flares between visits. I've referred a number of friends to this practice.
Dr. Robert Kaniecki is the very best doctor in the business!! He is certainly a top notch doctor. I have recommended him to family members.
all good from beginning to end
I always have a wonderful experience with Dr. Kanicki
Excellent experience with Dr. Kaniecki and staff.
highest level of communication i've ever seen in a medical practice, anywhere.
Receptionist was very friendly and helpful. This is rare to find in the health care industry.
Dr. Kaniecki greeted my daughter personally and walked her back to his office. He spent time talking with her and always seems GENUINELY interested in her and listens. She has made amazing improvement under his care. We couldn't be more grateful and happy!!
I've always had very good visits. I never had a bad one.
Love this provider. He's the best. He came highly recommended to me and I highly recommend him to others and they have been very very pleased as well.
Dr comes out to take you from waiting area
Robert Kaniecki is an excellent doctor. I owe him a lot!!
I cannot give enough appreciation to Dr. Kaniecki for the care he provides me suffering with severe migraines. He has with new medications and listening to me have actually decreased the number of migraines I have. a great respect for him and his sincere caring for his patients
very prompt and waiting room dark for migraine sufferers so very appreciative
Love Dr. Kaniecki and have already sent someone else to see him that has headaches for help.
Dr. Kaniecki is an excellent physician. A true "doctor" in every aspect of the profession. He provides exceptional health care to his patients while doing so in an exceptionally caring way.
Dr. Kaniecki has once again provided thorough treatment. He always see's you promptly and gives you plenty of opportunity to ask questions. He always listens to make sure your concerns are addressed and you never feel rushed. I have always left his office extremley satisfied with his care.
have always been very pleased with my visits and care.
dr Kaniecki was wonderful
No nurse involved.....just saw DR. Kaneicki
I did not see a nurse during this visit, only Dr. Kaniecki himself. He was incredibly professional, as always, and his staff was friendly and informative.
he's seriously the best neurologist I've ever been to. no other doctor has actually given me a comprehensive treatment plan. I actually feel hopeful about my condition now.
Dr. Kaniecki was so wonderful to work with. He explained everything in terms that both myself and daughter could understand. He explained what usually causes migraines and how the brain works, with words and drawings. It was VERY helpful. She was given several medications, which Dr Kaniecki explained how they worked with her body in helping to decrease the number of migraines she was experiencing.

Dr. Kaniecki is the absolute best of the best - I could not recommend him more highly. It took me 5 years and MANY other doctor visits to find him, but I now do not know what I would do without him. He is exceptionally knowledgeable, personable, caring, and most of all, capable of carefully listening to his patients. I have sent several people to him, and will not hesitate to do so again in the future. There are no other doctors like him, in his specialty, in the Pittsburgh area, possibly even further. Thanks again, Dr. K!

Dr Kaniecki is an amazing Doctor. He truly listens and understands my medical issues and does what is needed to help me. I credit him with giving me a much better quality of life.
This is one of the best provider experiences I have ever had with a UPMC provider. Dr Kaniecki was absolutely amazing and truly listened to what I had to say and as a team came up with a treatment plan to help with my condition.
Dr. Kaniecki was very helpful in explaining my condition to me, and I particularly appreciated his explanations in scientific terms after we had discussed that I am studying neuroscience. Further, he was very receptive to my input and feedback.

always very happy with the doctor and his staff
Regarding the medical condition for which I saw this provider--I have experienced it for nearly 20 years. I have been treated by doctors at leading clinics in other parts of the country where I lived in the past. All of these clinics and these doctors had strengths. However, my experience's at this clinic, and with Dr. Kaniecki in particular, are second to none. His knowledge, expertise, experience in this specialized area, manner in which he communicates with patients, and his ability to explain medical information are exceptional. He inspires confidence every time I visit with him. I cannot say enough positive comments about this doctor. He is truly the best!
I cannot answer the above questions because there was no nurse! The Dr. comes to get me and I see only him the entire visit. The Dr. has been excellent for me and I do recommend him to everyone who asks!
Dr. Kaniecki is fabulous!! I've seen many Neurologists and Migraine Specialists from Hopkins to Georgetown and Dr. Kaniecki is by far the best. I would and have recommended him to friends and family.
Dr. Kaniecki is definitely the "cream of the crop" of all doctors. His rapport with his patients is outstanding and the time and care that he gives is invaluable to patients. dr Kaniecki is an amazing physician and I am grateful to be under his care.

Dr. Kaniecki is awesome. Extremely knowledgeable and great bedside manner
Dr. Kaniecki was very friendly and helpful, a lot of doctors just want to get you in and out, he really took the time to understand my issues and then provided helpful feedback. The give and take is how I wish all my visits went with any doctor. I was referred to him by 3 people so that says a lot about his reputation. I did not have to wait more then 5 minutes to be seen, I can't name one time I've ever been seen on time at a doctors office, overall the experience was great and worth the visit.
i do not trust any other dr. for my condition. dr. kanicki is the best!
I have been seeing Dr Kaniecki for over 20 years. His staff is always professional and courteous. He is the best neurologist for migraines in Pa.
No Doctor compares to Dr. Kaniecki; he is THE BEST Doctor out there. I wish I could see him for all of my health care needs.
Always a great experience. Thank God I found Dr. Konecki and the Headache Center.
The headache center is the best office I've ever been to. The doctors actually know what they're doing and take steps to solving my problems instead of just giving me medicine. I was having a lot of health problems, and this office squeezed me in right away. I cannot say how grateful I am for this because when youre not feeling well, and you dont know what's wrong with you, you just want some answers so you have move toward becoming yourself again. Dr. Kanaecki is very personable and shows that he genuinely cares about your health. He speaks to you in his office instead of in an exam room, which illustrates his level of care. I'm very happy I found this practice. Thanks to all involved.
I experienced a very positive appointment with Dr. Kaniecki. He always answers all my concerns and questions in a manner that I understand.

awesome doctor and great to talk with
The best care I have received.
I had my 3.5 year old and 6 week old children with me during the visit. Dr. Kaniekci engaged my 3.5 year old daughter in a conversation. He made her feel welcome and comfortable even though the appointment was for me. Additionally, my 6 week old daughter was nursing when he took me back and he did the examination around her so that she wasn't disturbed. Dr. Kaniecki is a very personable and fantastic physician.
perfect bedside manner. we enjoy these visits so much more than our pediatrician office visits. being on time goes a long way with respecting the patient
I had a fantastic experience during my visit. Dr. Kaniecki was great and very understanding. I called to schedule and appointment and wasn't able to get one until March 2017. I asked to be placed on the cancellation list. I was so surprised when they called back within 30 minutes of speaking with the scheduler and had a cancellation for same day. I was very greatful.
