My regular provider is another doctor in this practice. on the day of my appointment my provider was out sick and Dr G fit me in his schedule to remove stitches from an accident the week before.
not much to say. the fact that I have been going to dr. g for over 35 years speaks for it self. in my mind he is the best.

very best care
Dr. G is a very good doctor who's opinion respect. I have been with him for a very long time. I will be very disappointed if I have to change doctors, at the age of 61, because of UPMC's corporate greed or it's Chairman's ego. You have asked questions in this survey about stress and mental health. Having to loose a doctor who has provided care for you and who you value for no good reason other than a disagreement with your insurance provider, who's selection you cannot control, is very stressful.
always on timeready to listen respectful of concerns and my own personal quirks
always good experience
