It was a great first office visit. Dr. Soose explained everything very well and made all suggestions I understood.
This is the first time I met Dr Soose and I was very impressed with him.
I was referred to Dr. Soose by my ENT in Johnstown, Dr. Allison Harbart. I was diagnosed with Sleep Apena but I am unable to use CPAP machine. First I would like to than the receptionist. We are not familiar with the Monroeville area. We had to call the office because our GPS gave us poor directions. She was so helpful and pleasant. Next the nurse who took us to the exam room was very nice. She offered us something to drink before she asked for my personal information. When Dr. Soose entered the room, he introduced himself to us. He extended his hand to shake both my hand and my husbands. He made us feel comfortable. He explained the different tests that he wanted me to take. He explained why these tests were necessary. He showed us visual aids on the computer and explained how these procedures would benefit my condition. I was treated like I was his only patient. I am very pleased that I was sent to Dr. Soose.
I travel from Cleveland Ohio just to be under the care of dr. Ryan Soose. He is most kind and patient with all my concerns regarding issues of my sleep apnea. He is an expert and leader in his field. I am fortunate to have found him!

This is by far the best doctor and staff that I have ever had
I really appreciated that Dr. Soose ordered the ferritin test and followed up with me about it personally the very next day and also that he gave me the choice of which of two ways I wanted to address the low ferritin level. He's very friendly and easy to talk to, and I would definitely see him again and recommend him to someone else.

simply the best....
Dr. Soos did what all good health are providers should do! He wrote down my issues on a piece of paper and walked me through the decisions we could make. And then he gave me the paper to take home! How simple, but invaluable. I did not need to take notes.......the info was all there. All doctors should incorporate this simple technique in the protocol for all doctor/patient interaction.
Dr. Soose was very nice and took time to explain what was going on.
Dr. Soose was a great provider during my first visit. However, i did not like having to wait over an hour to see him

Dr. Soose listened to my needs and is trying to help eliminate my problem. he was very professional and sensitive when speaking to me about a solution to my problem.
Dr. Soose and his staff exceeded the expectations of my wife & I. This was a VERY POSITIVE first impression. I have been seeking treatment for sleep apnea since last October. I had been passed back & forth between more that one "professional" in Erie PA, (thru non-UPMC providers), and had been told that my only options were a UPPP surgery or a tracheostomy. I decided to switch to a UPMC provider due to my wife's Insider Advantage Health Plan and contacted the office of Crawford & Fitch in Franklin PA for a consultation regarding this type of surgery. Their office referred me to Dr. Soose. I called Dr. Soose's office on a Tuesday and had my first visit with him Friday of that very same week! Dr. Soose is the first professional that actually took the time to examine my mouth, nasal passage and throat to evaluate the air blockage. (Scary thought that other "professionals" had recommended UPPP surgery without doing an exam first.) Dr. Soose advised that UPPP was not the best solution for me at this time, and he explained other non-invasive options to my wife & I that would benefit my sleep apnea condition. He & his staff made me feel that I was finally on the right path for proper treatment. I asked Dr. Soose to coordinate all of my treatment & CPAP equipment because I have confidence in him and will not be going back to the previous providers. Thank you!!!
first time with this provider. Could not have asked for anything more.
Dr. Soose was very prepared for my visit and had reviewed my condition and health records prior to my appointment.
I was very impressed with Dr Soose and his staff. I place them at 100% and I don't just say this lightly compared to other health care services. Thanks!
Excellent level of knowledge, care concern and communication.
Dr Soose was very thorough and explained his findings in great detail. He even drew a diagram to explain what possible next steps would be.
love this dr and the time he took with me explaining procedures to me. he and his interns were VERY kind and caring. Thank you Dr Soose!
It was an initial visit. The next steps were pending the outcome of ordered tests, which were not complete at the time of this survey. Dr. Soose seemed to have an understanding of the nature of my symptoms and possible courses of treatment.
He was articulate, respectful, and responsive. He listened to me.
I traveled from Cleveland and found Dr. Soose to be better than I hoped. it was well worth my time and travel.
I was so thankful that I had went to this doctor, as he really was caring, & took his time to explain my health & what track we needed to be on to correct my medical problem...
The nurse, Jill, was extremely friendly and helpful. Her personal skills are phenomenal. Dr Soose was also very patient-friendly. He took time to listen intently to my medical history, explain my options and create a plan moving forward. I would recommend Dr. Soose and his staff to anyone with ENT issues. I've seen several ENT doctors over the past 10+ years and this group is by far superior to the others!
wonderful experience. explained everything very clearly that I could understand.
Dr. Soose was extremely approachable, efficient, competent, and communicative. This was a very good experience, well worth the 7 hour commute. I'm optimistic about him being able to help me with my issues.
I was very pleased with the service
Very impressed, knowledgable friendly wish I would have seen him sooner!
Great doctor and great bedside manner...was caring and understanding.
Dr. Soos was very nice and showed concern for my problem. He explained things to me clearly and I left his office feeling confident that his recommended treatment was accurate for my needs.
I was really impressed with the professional nature of Dr Scoose. He listened and understood my problem.
