I think he is Fabulous
My experience with the UPMC Headache Center was very positive. This was my first visit and I was not sure what to expect. The receptionist and office staff were very friendly and professional. The atmosphere of the office was very considerate of people suffering from headaches. We first met with Sydney who is a resident with Dr. Kaniecki. She was compassionate, thorough, and very knowledgeable in her field. She made me feel less anxious and that she truly cared about my condition. Dr. Kaniecki took his time to explain as well as educate my husband and myself about what was happening with me. He gave me confidence that my headaches will be taken care of, I have not felt this way with any other doctor my entire life. It is easy to see how intelligent Dr. Kaniecki is and his passion for helping others manage their headache pain. I felt blessed to have finally met a doctor who I believe will be able to help me.
My care provider, Dr. Kaniecki is excellent!
dr connect he is an expert period unlike any doctor I have ever been to period he takes scrupulous notes and reviews progress like a scientist would do testing period he is by far one of the best doctors I have ever been to and on top of that he has provided me medication has changed my life.
dr kaniecki has always been very responsive to my headaches and prescribed the most up to date and helpful treatments.
Love Dr. Kaniecki. He's the best.
Dr. Kaniecki has always treated me with absolute complete respect. He does not talk down to me, but always explains everything in the full extent so I can understand. I always feel like my visits are beneficial to bettering my health. He is kind, well-spoken, and professional. I honestly have zero complaints about his service!
Dr. Kaniecki is THE BEST headache doctor in the area. I recommend him any time I talk to people suffering from migraines. I also really appreciate that his waiting room has low lights and no noise (NO TV!!!). He truly "gets" what it is like to be a migraine sufferer. Thank you Dr. K!

I had a great visit with my physician yesterday. We have tried over the many years of different treatments and medications and are changing to a new treatment.

He got my health concern under control, though others had tried and failed

Dr. Kaniecki spent time with my daughter, asking her questions to get to the root of her headaches. He explained what type of headache she had based upon her responses in clear, easy to understand terms. He had a great personality and made the situation less stressful for my daughter. Thank you for all of your help!!

Dr Kranicki is absolutely wonderful! He takes his time to review and explain absolutely everything. He is kind, caring, compassionate, and concerned with your wellbeing. He explained more to me in my first visit than any neurologist has ever explained to me in 20 years of visiting them. I can not say enough good things about this office!

Everything was very good.
Dr. Kaniiecki has made a huge improvement in the quality of my life by being my Neurologist and treating my migraines.
Dr Kaniecki is truly wonderful. To have a doctor who genuinely is interested in how your life and health are going, someone who is at the very top of knowledge and new procedures, a person who truly cares about his patients, asks questions, listens carefully, and shares his own thoughts with real conversations...there are very very few doctors whom I've had that are so outstanding.

He's great. He knows his stuff. And he communicates it well to lay people.
I dont mind waiting to see Dr. Kaniecki - there was another patient that was in need of his attention urgently, and he came in and explained why he was late and apologized. He is a great physician who cares about his patients and wants them to have the best quality of life, even with debilitating migraines. His staff is awesome and always extremely helpful.
I have been seeing Dr. Kaniki for more than 10 years. He is excellent Doctor.
Dr. Kaniecki explains things in a way for you to understand! He answered all of my questions.
Great trust in his ability to really listen yet be objective with advice. Always a challenging appointment!

I always have a very good experience coming to Dr. Kanieki for my check ups. Dr. Kanieki comes out and greets all of his patients at the time of our visit. He is the only Dr. I have that does this and I think it's wonderful.

We know that there is not another doctor who has his level of knowledge, experience and expertise in the field of headaches.
Dr Kaniecki is simply the best in the field and we are most fortunate to be under his exceptional care.
I LOVE Dr. Kaniecki! I've been seen by him for the last 9 years for my migraine management. I have referred MANY people to him that have the same problem over the years. I am thankful to find such a compassionate doctor who really tries to help me solve my headache issues. The office staff takes care of me quickly to solve my headache symptoms when I call the office. I have nothing but good to say about all of them!! :)
love this provider. personable, knowledgeable, has empathy
Dr. K is the only Dr. that has helped my headaches. He is very understanding and always figures out something to try to help tackle my migraines.
This provider provides above average care as it relates to the rest of the UPMC system. Dr. Kinicki spends an enormous amount of time talking with you about your care. It is unusual and refreshing. All other providers could learn from his example.
I had an emergency due to being pregnant and having a migraine. Dr Kiniki and office staff got me in the same day and accommodated my emergency. He was wonderful and addressed all of my concerns, listened to me, and took away my migraine pain. I would recommend him to anyone. He saved the day for me!
I really like my provider, i just feel like at this appointment i was rushed a bit when i wanted to understand and talk about other options of non pill treatment options.
I've always had a good experience from this care lrovider
I would recommend this provider to anybody
he was absolutely wonderful! Very personable with and excellent bedside manner. He took his time to listen and explain absolutely everything to me. I've seen several neurologists over the years but he is the very first that actually took the time to break down all of my symptoms and why I get them. I couldn't say enough good things.
I have always had the utmost respect for dr. Kaniecki and his staff. Thay have taken great care of me for many many years and I feel blessed and thankful to be in their care.

Dr. Kaniecki explained things well to me and answered any questions I had. He also gave me alternatives to the ways to take my medication.
I love this office, Dr. Kaniecki, and how he has helped me over the years!
The doctor was very informative, friendly and knowable as well as very friendly staff.
This was one of the most proactive and helpful doctor appointments I have had. Very insightful and helpful. I felt listened to. I left the office feeling hopeful. Very appreciative for the help and care I received.
Dr Kanicki is an exceptional neurologist who is caring and patient.
Dr. Kaniecki is caring, kind and compassionate. He has consistently worked with me to find solutions to my problems. I pray that the UPMC/Highmark issues don't affect my ability to continue being cared for by Dr. Kaniecki.
I love the care I get from both the doctor and the staff
I have had nothing but good experiences with Dr. Kaniecki. I feel that Dr. Kaniecki is a good listener and is encouraging and empathetic. I appreciate his holistic approach to my health, including everyday lifestyle changes, as well as prescription medication.
Dr Kaniecki has always listened attentively to my issues and is well aware that not every person is textbook in medicine. He's innovative and very knowledgeable about migraines. He has a wonderful beside manner and shows empathy.
Dr Kaniecky is the best hands down. We discussed headaches and in years he has not had to change anything. This time.. he clearly had to do something and he has ordered appropriate testing -- A Dr. that Cares and understands
Dr Kaniecki is a genuine, kind, smart and thorough doctor. on my first visit he gave me peace of mind and a plan to follow. I finally feel like there is hope!
Dr. Kaniecki provides me the best care of ANY physician I see anywhere. He is interested, attentive, knowledgeable about my condition and my history, does a comprehensive exam on me every time I see him, and cares about the well-being of his patients. I trust him implicitly with my medical care and recommend him every chance I get. I have been seeing him for 16 years and my migraines are under complete control. Recently I suffered a concussion from a fall and his staff took me in quickly and Dr. Kaniecki checked me over carefully, reviewed all my ER records and tests, and discussed thoroughly with me what to expect over the next six months about my recovery from the concussion, addressing all my concerns. I came away from my appointment relieved. He is the best!
Provider was great, very knowledgeable, explained everything and listened
He is always knowledgable and is able provide clear and direct answers to my questions. Has up to date information related to my condition and any potential current and future solutions to my illness
I appreciate that Dr. Kaniecki can explain things to me at my level--I have some education and training in this area, so I like to ask more nitty gritty details about mechanisms of action for medications and other sorts of questions and he's always willing to communicate what he knows which I really appreciate. I like when providers see your healthcare as a collaboration and treat you as a person with agency--makes me more likely to feel enthusiastic about a treatment plan if I have a say in it!
best dr i have ever visited!! so sad i might lose him bc of my insurance!
Dr. Kaniecki is the best! office staff is very friendly and courteous. parking in Oakland can be very trying
Very thorough visit and clear explanations, and in general I felt like I was in capable hands when rethinking the medications used to treat my headaches. It's nice to know I can call the Headache Center and get advice based on experience.
Dr. Kanieki has been my neurologist for just over a year for my chronic migraines. He is an excellent listener and takes my questions and concerns and preferences seriously. He also treats me like I am a reliable reporter of my own symptoms and experiences, which as a woman, is not always a given in interactions with health care providers.
Dr. Kaneiki is a caring and excellent doctor.
always provide excellent care. I appreciate the time Dr. Kaniecki takes with me answering questions and explaining things thoroughly.
Dr. Kaniecki is an excellent healthcare provider, and an expert in his field. I truly appreciate his dedication to patient care. I have recommended him and his group to many people.
Dr Kaniecki, is the only dr that has taken my migraines serious enough for me to give him my full trust. I request to see only him, I feel he has the time, patience, and what I would call bedside manner, that makes me feel as though he is really listening and hearing what I have to say.
haven't seen Dr in over 20 yrs. he still New of my last issues 20 yrs ago.
The Doctor listen to my problems and came up with a fantastic plan of care. I am very happy with my visit.
Fantastic staff and doctor. Couldnt be happier.
Dr. Kaniecki is a fantastic physician. He's an expert in his field, very nice, prompt and efficient. He's everything you could want from your doctor.
Dr. Kaniecki is fantastic! He listens, and genuinely cares about what I have to say. He doesn't make quick assumptions as to my health. I also appreciate that he responds to my inquiries through MyUPMC portal. It has been an invaluable service.
Dr. Kaniecki has tried his best over the years to help me.
This was one of the best doctor visits I've had. The doctor spent 45 minutes with me, he was kind, attentive and helpful. I felt like he took the time to make sure I understood what was going on and that I was comfortable with the treatment. I really liked Dr Kaniecki
friendly always listen and gets back to you same day with an hour of issue
While I believe Dr Kaniecki cares very much for his patients, I didn't like the way the visit had changed. There was a PA that did my check up before seeing Dr Kaniecki. The Dr himself has always done the check up and asked questions on how I've been, but this appointment the PA did these things then I saw the Dr. This was a less personal visit than before, Dr Kaniecki has always been that last remaining Dr that took care of you himself and I truly have always appreciated that type of care. I hope this was just a one off time and Dr Kaniecki will once again spend that time with his patients. I would rather wait a little longer in his office than have a PA do the exam and ask the questions I felt as those this was an attempt to get more patients in and out faster. Having said all of this I still appreciate Dr Kaniecki's care he gives.
he had a intern talk with me, he wasn't even in the room.. then he talked to the intern and told me what he thought after talking with the intern.REALLY!!
Dr. Kaniecki is the best. I wouldn't see anyone else for my migraine issues.
Excellent. very pleased with knowledge and caring attitude.
Dr. Kaniecki and his Resident were both very kind and attentive. They showed empathy and respect while working with me and described my condition in an easy to understand manner. I left with easy to read instructions, medications and protocol, and new insight about my headaches and treatment plan. This is the most optimistic I've felt about my headache treatment in a very long time.
Dr. Kaniecki is excellent. He is thorough, knowledgeable, friendly, and compassionate. everything you would want in your physician.
Dr. Kanieki is very impressive! Great Doctor,thorough and very personable!!
I would give Dr Kaneiki a 20 if I could! wonderful doctor!
Dr. Kanecki has been my neurologist for 20 years. He is an awesome doctor and caregiver.
I started seeing Dr. Kaniecki about 15 years ago for my migraines. All the doctors in my local area only were pushing me from pill to pill. Since I have been seeing Dr. Kaniecki, my headache frequency has lessened considerably. Once my son started with headaches on a more frequent basis, I made the appointment for him to see Dr. Kaniecki.
Dr. Kaniecki is the best of the best. He "gets" what it means to be a migraine sufferer and therefore makes his office visits tolerable, meaning no tvs, cell phones or other unnecessary noise and dim lighting in the waiting room. He is always a professional and is extremely knowledgeable about his field. Since I began seeing him years ago my quality of life has improved dramatically. Thank you Dr. Kaniecki!!
He was excellent.
Dr. Kaniecki is the benchmark for how every and all interactions with a Dr. should go. He called my son back personally, took his vitals and and examined him personally, spoke in depth and detail about figuring out what my son's issues were and how to manage his care. He was on time, and finished the appointment in a timely manner. We left the appointment feeling completely in the loop and satisfied with what Dr. Kaniecki had said. In a day and age where medical care is passed off to PA's, it was a very pleasant surprise to have my son treated by the provider we expected to see. Dr. Kaniecki has come highly recommended to us and after my son's appointment, it is plain to see why. I would recommend Dr. Kaniecki in a heartbeat.
Outstanding physician and an exceptional listener.
doctor very knowledgeable about my condition. easy to talk with
I have always been very pleased with my health care provider and his staff. He is very knowledgeable and accommodating and being a migraine sufferer himself, he knows exactly what we as patients are going through, which is exceptionally helpful. Having been to other neurologists in the past who do not suffer from them, I find it helpful to have one who understands the pain and struggle intimately.
He is great. He gave me my life back thanks to his care. I only wish I would have known him sooner after struggling with headsaches since age 12 and being misdiagnosed before. He is a good listener.
I have seen Dr Kaniecki for several years and he is always responsive to my needs and concerns.
honestly Dr. klaniciki is hands down the best doctor I have ever worker with in my life time. I truly wish every doctor was like him, he is awesome
Dr. Kaniecki is an excellent doctor. He's very knowledgeable, helpful, and he and his staff are always available when patients need assistance.
excellent providers - Dr Kaniecki
Dr. Robert Kaniecki is one of the best doctors I have ever seen. I left feeling confident in my diagnosis and treatment plan, and I felt like he actually cared about my questions and input. I am incredibly grateful to have seen him.
Outstanding provider. Best neurologist I have ever worked with. Efficient, focus, extremely knowledgeable, and provided excellent care.
Love Dr Kanieke, always so polite and always takes his time with me. His staff is very nice and well organized.
Dr. Kaniecki could not be any more helpful, caring, or easy to talk to. He is an outstanding doctor, one that I can easily recommend to friends and family. The treatment program that he has given to me over the last 8 years has been one that no other doctor could come close to matching. His ability to listen to my specific needs, combined with his tremendous skill set are unmatched. I have made tremendous progress with him, and I have no reason to think it will not continue.
I have always respected Dr Kaniecki during the many years he has been my doctor.
Fantastic doctor. Very knowledgeable. Would recommend this doctor to anyone.
Dr. Kanieki was very informative and really listened to what I had to say. He had a clear direction of how my needs to go in the next few months, I was well pleased.
I have been in the office twice for my migraines and the staff there has been wonderful and helpful. I also have talked about the physician about how wonderful he and how quick he is with his visit but he covers everything he needs to and questions that you may have and is a wonderful physician.
overall excellent care given
The best, most prepared doctor I have ever seen. I walk in and he has already reviewed my medical history. He responds to my upmc messages promptly. I recommend him to everyone with migraine issues.
Dr. Kaniecki was great! He went over my history with me and discussed/ explained everything to me. He allowed me to ask questions at any time. He was highly recommended by my coworkers and I'm glad I made an appt.
Dr. Kaniecki is the best. He's about as awesome a doctor as humanly possible.
my appointment was very helpful and professional. Dr Kaniecki addressed my concerns. I never feel rushed through my appointments
Dr Kaniecki is one if the best doctors I've ever had. He is patient, kind, smart and very caring. He seems to really want the best for me. I feel safe in his care.
Dr Kanicki is the best!!
it's only been my second appointment with dr kaniecki but I feel like I am in excellent hands being treated for my migraines.
This provider has been the best expert in his field that I've had contact with in a very long time. A+.
I was thrilled to see Dr. K 6 months earlier than scheduled due to a cancellation. He was fantastic and took ample time to very thoroughly discuss my condition and align on a solid treatment plan. Definitely worth the wait.
Great MD; spends time asking about migraines and related health issues; really cares about my migraines
The doctor provided outstanding care. He spent more time than I expected and listened to me and my concerns. He created a care regimen that far exceeded my expectations for my initial visit. This was the best healthcare experience I have ever had.
Dr. K makes you feel like family and really cared for.
In order to see this provider, I have to specifically request him. All follow-up appts have been with his PA. I had to ask to see him again as I saw him once in Jan, 2017 and with this appt. All other appts (approx. 3) were with his PA. My condition is NOT improving. He treats with a very narrow minded focus. He does not consider nor appear to care about my other conditions that affect my health as a WHOLE person.
Dr. Kaniecki and his staff are the best I have found in over 40 years of treatment for migraine. They really know what they are doing and they are the best at doing it. I have moved to Florida and still travel back to see him for my care. I would trust nobody more than him and Kimberly. When I moved to Florida I visited several "specialists" here with results ranging from disappointing to scary. The first doctor I saw told me to take two medications together (Imitrex and Methergine) that Dr. Kaniecki had always warned me were dangerous to take within 24 hours of one another. The doctor here in FL had to look it up on his phone and was SHOCKED to see I was right (thank you, Dr. Kaniecki). I now travel to Pittsburgh and even on a tight budget and with a full-time job, I find it is well worth the time and expense to get what I think is the best care available.
great doctor. spent alot of time with me .thorough. caring
dr kiniecki is such a wonderful caring doctor. he always makes me feel so comfortable and treats me as an equal.
I have been very happy with Dr Kanieecki and his staff. I did wait slightly longer than 15 minutes, but not longer than 20-25. I like that the doctor himself comes to bring me back to his office. I felt I got immediate feedback and care for the issue I called about.
Everything was great. I love how the lights are lowered at the office to accommodate migraine suffers. Gives a relaxing mood.
Dr. Kaniecki haw helped me with my migraines much more than either the UPMC Concussion clinic or the other migraine specialist that I've gone to. He asks pertinent questions and actually listens to what I have to say about symptoms/patterns in my migraines since the last visit.
Very satisfied, excellent care.
Dr. Kaniecki is outstanding!! Listens to my concerns & explains everything so I can understand. Anytime I email him with a question, he responds quickly. He is super!!
Dr. Kaniecki took his time, really listened and came up with the the best possible solutions for my migraines. He helped me understand them better and gave me ways to change things on my own to help decrease the frequency of migraines. I had to schedule mo the in advance for this appointment and it was completely worth the wait. He is a knowledgeable, kind and personable doctor.
Dr. Kaneicki is the best. Knowledgeable and caring- A+
my wait time was a little long, but I've experienced this before. worth the wait
I appreciate that Dr. Kaniecki works with me for who I am and where I'm at (ie. someone who does not take medications). Also, he responded very quickly to a follow-up question that I emailed to him. That was also appreciated.
Excellent, caring and supportive. Very good listener and I left the appointment feeling very confident in the diagnosis and prescribed treatment.
He is the best!!!
Dr. Kaniecki has been my migraine headache doctor for years. He has been very helpful in helping me with migraines and understanding them. I have recommended him to many people that I have known that suffers with migraines.
Always a good experience at this office. and Dr. Kanecki is always spot on with me. I would follow him to any practice he was part of.
Dr. Kaniecki is up on newest migraine meds allowing me to finally receive some relief with the newest drug available.
I do not think there is any neurologist smarter and spends more time truly explaining what is going on with your health. I travel over an hour just to see him!
Dr Kaniecki was right on with my medical issues. I don't think I could get better care or expertise anywhere else. he has been a God send to my family
Dr. Kaniecki is excellent, he is professional, he listens and allows me to give input in my plan of care. He has helped me tremendously with my headaches. If i need to speak with him he personally responds promptly. I have recommended him to many friends and patients.
Dr Kaniecki is a wonderful dr and always takes his time with me to help make sure that my headaches are getting better. he makes me feel like I am not just a patient, but actually a member of his family that he is trying to get better. That is not always easy to find is a dr. I am so greatful to have him. Thank you Dr Kaniecki
I think Dr. Kaniecki is the absolute best!!
the only doctor appointment I actually look forward to each year
My care provider is very knowledge about me and what would best help me
my daughter loves Dr Kaniecki. She states " He is funny, sweet, and kind. ". He respects her opinion and asks her the medical questions. While answering all of my questions. He is wonderful.
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.
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.
Always very satisfied with my visits with Dr Kaneicki!
I really appreciate and value Dr Kaniecky and his staff!
excellent, caring Dr.
office staff are very difficult to work with when calling in with needs for medication.
I really like the fact that he listens to what I have to say and help me figure things out
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!
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 a superb Dr. I would not go to anyone else for migraine treatment

He was the first neurologist I have seen that has have given me hope regarding my diagnosis. I am extremely happy with the care, concern, and results I was given from this appointment.
Dr Kaniecki is excellent doctor. With his help, Dr Kaniecki is an excellent doctor, due to his assistance, I've been able to manage my migraines to minimize impact on my work and personal life.

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.
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.
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 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 an exceptional physician.
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 the best of the best. He answers questions thoroughly and listens carefully.
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.
He is a wonderful doctor and I would never go to anyone else for my headaches.
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 incredibly caring and thorough, during appointments.
dr. Kaniecki is the best!
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.
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.
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.
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.
