Dr Fasenella was very thorough with his explanations and took the time to answer any questions or concerns that I had.
Dr Fassanella and the resident treated me with outstanding respect and kindness.the resident indicated he had reviewed my extensive history and this fact was evident by his conversation. Dr. Fassanella spoke about the specifics related to my response to medication he has prescribed and encouraged me to speak about my nutrition and any issues I have experienced relative to my dysphasia.
Outstanding physician and excellent and engaging support staff.
Doc was excellent.... took time to explain the situation.
the Doctor is very thorough and technically inquisitive
always great! keep up the good work!
I will not go back to this doctor. He made my problem seem unimportant.
I have had a complex, chronic condition that greatly reduced my quality of life. My family doctor, and sever other specialists were all having trouble diagnosing and helping me. Dr. Fasanella worked with my other specialists and spent a great deal of time and effort to figure out a course of treatment that is working for me. Every time I've seen him, He is prepared to talk about my rather uncommon condition and makes sure he takes enough time to address ALL of my issues. Dr. Fasanella is an excellent Doctor. I highly reccomend him.
Dr Fasanella always takes care to explain everything. He doesn't do everything out of the book. He looks at the whole picture, not just the symptoms. This makes him one of the top doctors I've ever seen. I wouldn't see anybody else.
Caring, provided several options and had a good understanding of me personally
I was very very pleased with Dr Fasanella and Jeff. I could tell that they had spent time looking at my records before my visit. They presented many new ideas and viewpoints that others had not brought to my attention. I look forward to continuing care with them. I have already recommended them to one friend.
Dr. Fasanella was superb....he explained in great understandable detail my situation and the way to treat it...He did not rush...he was patient with all my questions...this was a wonderful reassuring experience...
I eeally appreciated not feeling rushed in this visit. He took the time to answer all my questions.
I am always impressed with the time taken with me and taking time to figure the best path to follow. I have confidence in Dr. Fasenella and UPMC .
THEY TREATED ME WITH RESPECT AND EVERYONE WAS KIND AND FRIENDLY.
I appreciated the superior knowledge the Doctor provided in explaining how the results from the MRI that I just had corelate with the other medical condition I have. He showed the utmost concern for my overall health.
I very much trust and respect this Doctor and his realistic and honest approach to medicine as it relates specifically to me and my condition, and I always feel better and less hopeless about my chronic acid reflux after seeing him because he carefully considers what course of action is best for me to take given my history.
My experience with Dr Fasanella was more than excellent. His superior knowledge and kind bedside manner is a rare combination. we are fortunate to have a physician of his caliber in Pittsburgh.
great job! thank you!
Listened carefully. Took much time to understand, explain possible causes and possible treatments. Recommended less evasive treatment plans to begin.
Pleased with the care from the Doctor and staff, all were pleasant and attentive. Wait time could have been a little better but it was not excessive. Overall satisfied with my visit.
Dr. Fasanella developed a good plan for a complicated medical problem
Dr. Fasanella was an incredibly good doctor. Not arrogant, listened to all my questions.
always a good experience with Dr Fasanella and his team.
I was very happy with my visit.
I was very relieved to meet with Dr Fasanella. He listened to my description of my symptoms and asked me specific questions related to my symptoms. He made recommendations, explaining the expected results of his recommendations as well as alternative suggestions to treat my symptoms. He followed up with a personal phone call before I even got home from my appointment to inform me that he had reviewed my past medical history and had noted some thing that needed further evaluation.
great visit with communication with dr
Excellent from start of appointment to end.
I believe that my doctor is the best in his field and he treats me with respect and dignity.
Everyone was very nice and caring
Dr. Kenneth E Fasanella took the time to discuss my concerns and ask relevant questions. I felt as though he listened and really cared about what course of actions we could take so that I felt better.
I like having the Resident Dr interview prior to seeing Dr Fasanella and then they collaborate.
I find Dr. Fasanella to be knowledge about my condition and he will take time to answer my questions and discuss how I can help better my health. As I have helped train doctors in the past in "bedside manner and relating to patients" I think he does a good job.
we did wait over an hour in the waiting room and 15 minutes in the exam room which I found out from other patients waiting was because they had no available rooms and some of those patients waited hours in the waiting room
Dr. Fasanella was very helpful and informative. THANKS
Staff very polite, helpful and pleasant.
Dr Fasanella is very attentive and informative.
I am.in the medical field a I have never had a physician take the time to talk to me even giving me medical advice. my PCP and I talked before I made the appointment. she had said you know many sub specialties providers are not very friendly. she was really wrong and I was truly surprised.
I learned a lot.
Doctor was pre occupied with another appointment
Dr. Fosanella was wonderful- listened, explained, together we covered my medical history. Many of these questions are not relevant, as this was my first visit with him and this department at UPMC. never felt like I was being rushed out the door. We concurred on testing, and even today, his staff is very timely in returning messages regarding further testing, explanations, etc. Thank you!
I was especially glad to have a good one-on-one with Dr. Fassenella. Previous times I spoke also with another doctor. By Dr. Fassenella spending longer with me it is giving me a better opportunity for me go get to know my doctor better and for him to get to know me, too. Thanks
seem to really like this dr. he was really interested on whats going on with my stomach and my ipf
Dr Fasanella saved my life. Need I say more?
Very attentive and doesn't rush you through your appointment.
Dr. Fasanella and his team are the greatest providers I have ever experienced. I am grateful for both him and his team and all the time and experience they have shared with me over the years. I would never go anywhere else.
Doctor was excellent in answering any questions I had. I felt reassured when I left the office and that all my concerns had been addressed.
My first meeting with Dr.Fasanella was very positive. He did lab work and prescribed new medication which I hope will reduce some of my health problems.
Dr. Fassanella was a pleasure to visit for this consultation. Informative, focused, concerned and was definitely a 'be here now' professional to explain all the reasons for the consultation.
Dr. Fasanella does an excellent job. He is extremely knowledgeable, passionate, and even compassionate. He is an all-around great provider and a phenomenal specialist!
Excellent care and respect for patient.
Dr Fasanella will always be my favorite provider as he goes above and beyond for me. I feel safe putting my life in his hands if I needed to.
Dr fasanella was very approachable knoweledgeable.. I didnt feel rushed. he listened and answered all my questions in a compressible manner.. showed compassion
I am very respectful of Dr. Fasanella as he spends detailed time with me as a patient and is always very thorough with his questions and in listening to my concerns and questions. I couldn't ask for a better doctor.
The doctor was very good at explaining the problem/situation and what the options are. I appreciate him easing my mind.
Dr Fasanella is the nicest physician I have ever been treated by. He is a gem!
Only saw intake nurse Medical updates,BP and weight and spoke only with Dr. Fasenella about my medical needs
Doctor was pragmatic and direct. I thought he was excellent.
Dr. Fasanella is truly the smartest, most competent, and caring physician I have ever visited. Every visit he educates me more about my condition than the rheumatologists have ever done. I never feel rushed, he answers all questions in depth, and is extremely nice. He is truly an exceptional physician.
