I had many questions r/e another upcoming surgery. Allison spent a great deal of time with me answering my questions.
wonderful young lady
She was TERRIFIC!
very good experience with Dr. Woods, she is caring and kind.
Ms Woods is is a helpful and supportive PA. I wish all doctors were like her..
Allison is an excellent PA. I even request her! She is caring, informative, knowledgeable and I am very comfortable with her. You should be proud to have her on your UPMC team.
Allison the nurse practitioner was amazing!! She listened to my questions, answered me and was very patient as I asked my questions regarding my post op care concerns. I was impressed with her knowledge and bedside manner.
very happy with results
Waited a little while, but after that everything was great.
We had a great experience with Allison Woods. My daughter broke a bone in her hand and was seen the same day we called for an appointment. We waited for 5 minutes to be called back to a room, and the evaluation of her x-rays and hand was very thorough and everything was explained for us to understand. This made a very stressful situation much easier for us. I would gladly recommend Ms. Woods to anyone for orthopedic needs.
Everyone is concerned
wonderful staff and all professionals are great that I have encountered
Dr.Woods was amazing. She is extremely knowledgeable and so kind and caring. She went as above and beyond to help my child feel comfortable with her condition. Could not ask for better care!
I appreciated the explanation to me of why I should have surgery to repair my fx wrist.
Allison was very courteous and knowledgeable. it was a great experience and she answered all of my questions. if I needed ortho care again I would definitely go to her office.
great experience and very knowledgeable staff and entire department
I was very pleased with her courteous bedside manner and professionalism . She took her time with me and addressed any concerns/questions that I had. She also reassured me that she would be present during my surgical case which made me feel comforted. As a nurse that has worked with numerous healthcare providers in my career, she ranks far superior.
Allison was very nice. she explained everything to me so that it was easy to understand. she was very thorough and really cared about me and my injury. I wiould recommend her to everyone.
Dr. Goitz and Allison are top notch people and providers. The entire office is wonderful, polite, personable, efficient, etc.
All my experiences with UPMC providers have been fantastic!
everything went really well. I got all the answers I needed.
Allison is excellent with children. very knowledgeable and such a sweetie
A good experience.
Care provided was excellent. Staff was fantastic
I was seen by Allison Woods, PA, for a broken finger. I was reluctant to listen to her recommendations for a splint. Despite this, Allison patiently listened to my concerns, and was able to convince me that the splint is what I needed to have my fracture heal. She prescribed the splint, sent me to CRS Kaufmann Bldg that day to be fitted for the splint, and I've been healing since. Thank you Allison for your patience and expertise!!!
she was concerned with my progress concerns and pain level
Allison is an excellent physician's assistant. The meeting went very well; and she answered all of my questions thoroughly. Allison's instructions were clear and detailed. Thank you, Allison, for you important help!
She was very kind to my daughter and got us in and out efficiently while providing excellent care.
Answered all questions and concerns.
this orthopedic office is great. allisonis great. thanks
Ms Woods was excellent- provided additional info for post surgery incision care. She did not rush the appointment
first time I've seen dr. Gates PA Allison what a beautiful woman and a great personality she made me feel at ease and told me a few things to do with my hand that I had surgery on great job
doc was able toshare her similar experience about carpal tunnel surgery with me. great doc answered all my concerns.
Very personable, great personality, took time to answer questions in detail. Requested to see her in follow ups because of her bedside manner.
They were very nice and pleasant. It was for my bicep surgery and I greatly appreciated all the help.
She was awesome! I loved her bedside manner. She was gentle and considerate with a sense of humor. :) ..makes me want to punch another wall just to see her again!! Thank you Allison!!!
Allison was professional, friendly, provided excellent patient care, was appropriately candid with her treatment recommendations. She spoke to my soon to be 18 year old son as an adult, appropriately consulting with me. She explained which bone was broken in terms he understood, explained the need for a cast and thoroughly and clearly communicated all aspects of diagnosis, treatment and follow up. Allison is an excellent medical provider.
Allison was very thorough and patient on my visit. Thank you!
it was fair because I thought more test shoulld of been given the make sure my figure or hand wasn't broke. You can't always see a fracture on X-ray
very good experiences
When it turned out that the ER hadn't done the follow-up care they were supposed to, she didn't make me feel responsible for that or scare me. She just made sure I got what I needed, and was very approachable the whole time.
I was extremely happy with this provider. She was very pleasant and skillful.
