Dr. Maier works with me to try and find solutions to medical conditions that have sometimes been brushed off as superfluous. I appreciate that she listens and has a good sense of humor, too.
I love my provider! Robin is kind, patient, and helpful.
In most contacts with doctors, there is some degree of pretentiousness. The doctors maintain a faade of infallibility and assume a superior position. This does not occur with Dr. Maier. The relationship is honest. The focus is, at all times, on the patient. The communication is clear, with honest discussion and logical (not pre-assumed) conclusions. I welcome this approach.
She is always attentive, respectful, and open-minded. I don't feel judged, I feel 100% supported.
Dr. Maier took her time to listen to my concerns and to make sure my medical records were accurate. She suggested treatment plans within my price-range and that fit my atypical schedule. While she expressed concern about my weight - as usual - she did not push beyond my comfort once I explained I was waiting to be in a good place with a mental health care provider before attempting to address anything related to weight loss (it is not a healthy or safe thing for me to attempt alone); I felt heard and respected as a result.
Robin Maier is an excellent GP. I have recommended several people to her (new hires at U. Pittsburgh) and I find her to be very caring and an excellent listener.
I am very happy this office they are always very thorough
She really listened to me and took into account my preferences. She gave me options and explained things well.
i always feel comforted and understood after i see dr maier- even if i don't feel physically better in the moment
Dr. Maier was able to recommend a solution to an ongoing problem that other doctors had not thought of before, that met my wishes to avoid certain treatments. I am excited to partner with her on the treatment, as we see if it is finally the solution. I look forward to continuing my care with her. As a new patient, we carefully reviewed my medical history and there were no issues with updating my prescriptions under this new care.
Conscientious and cordial and knowledgeable.
Great experience at my new patient visit! great social skills, easy to talk to, and very knowledgeable!
Dr. Maier is wonderful. She always listens and treats me like an intelligent adult. She explains her choices and treatments, and gives me options when appropriate. She listens to my questions and answers thoughtfully and carefully. When I've reached out to her by messaging through the UPMC app, she always responds quickly and thoughtfully. I have recommended her to multiple friends.
great provider. too much wait to set up a check up visit - almost two months
Truly the best experience I've had with a doctor in my life. All staff friendly and made me feel comfortable and heard. Doctor Maier was especially thoughtful, explained everything clearly and offered advice in a really respectful and knowledgeable way. I'll definitely be back :)
Dr. Maier was attentive, careful, and thorough during the visit, and followed up promptly and appropriately.
I always appreciate the time and care that Dr. Maier provides me. Sometimes the office wait is a little long, but she listens to my concerns and has productive suggestions for treatments.
I like my doctor very much, she is personable and listens carefully to my concerns, always explains things clearly. However the office in general seems overcommitted. It is difficult to get an appointment, I have often had to wait when I arrive for my appointment, and the appointments seem "efficient" to the point of being rushed. This last visit I waited over half an hour, despite having arrived early to check in (so in actuality my wait was over 45 minutes).
she is so thorough, not rushed and listened to me!
Dr. Maier is the finest physician with whom I have worked. (I am 67 years old.)
I have a great care provider. She is a blessing in my life. She goes above and beyond. I just love her.
Dr Maier is great and explains everything so I can understand it and I would give her a lot of credit for this.If I don't understand anything she will explain it so I understand .
She is an excellent doctor and a very nice person. I have no complaints.
Dr was very thorough!
I like my doctor and her office it's just hard to get an appointment with her.
I so appreciate the comprehensive care Dr. Maier provides each time I need her expertise.
Very friendly and personable staff. Everyone seemed happy and to genuinely care about people.
I love Dr. Maier. it saddens me that I have to find a new provider because of upmc and highmark fight.
dr. Maier sent information on my 10-year CVD risk as an after-visit note or summary of my bloodwork and that was really helpful data.
Although I waited for a little while, I did not mind because Dr. Maier took the time to listen to me and explain things well. She was very thorough and efficient.
always feel respected
Dr. Maier is very attentive and has a great bedside manner
45 minute wait
Out of all the providers that I have visited with at this practice, I'm most comfortable and with Dr Maier. She's very likable, friendly, and familiar with me.
This was the first time I met with Dr. Maier. I liked her very much and intend to use her as my PCP
Overall, I was very happy with my experience. Dr. Maier answered all of my questions and was very kind about all of my concerns. She also explained why I was feeling pain during part of my exam. I was impressed with how much she remembered from my previous visit and how much she seemed to care about me. In addition, her rotation student asked me many detailed questions and took detailed notes, which I appreciated. My only concern was that I had seen a neurologist since my last visit who told me that she would send a summary of her recommendations to Dr. Maier, but I had the impression that Dr. Maier had not received the summary because Dr. Maier asked me what the neurologist told me to do and did not seem aware of any of the recommendations. This is not a major problem, as I know that Dr. Maier and the neurologist are both very busy, and I had not seen the neurologist about a major issue.
robin listens carefully and provides helpful information
I was taken care of vey well.
Dr. Maier cares about her patients and has always been helpful and thoruogh. I recommend her to anyone who is looking for a good, caring and dedicated PCP
Very pleased with the amount of knowledge Dr. Maier knows. I appreciate her frequently citing studies to justify her actions. I was also very impressed with her student assistant (I believe his name was Tom?). He was very thorough and professional, and clearly a fast learner.
Phenominal Physician. Always recommend to friends and colleagues
Dr Maier was very easy to talk to and helped me understand a few health related issues that I had never thought about before. This was my first visit with her and I plan to see her regularly now.
Dr. Maier is very respectful, gentle, and amazing when it comes to quality of care!
dr Maier always looks at me and listens to me and shares her opinions that I value
Great provider experience, staff is also wonderful. After my visit with the doctor, I did have to wait 30m for a small finger prick for bloodwork. However, when I poked my head out to ask about getting the test, someone came in with in a few minutes.
I scheduled annual check up. It turned out to be follow up visit. So there's not enough time for check up.
dr. mayors has always shown great concerned about my well-being she is a precious and decent physician
Dr. Maier is friendly, kind, and attentive. Our whole family is under her care and we couldn't be happier with her services. We would recommend her to anyone.
intelligent creative ideas to address certain health issues. She's attentive, kind, intelligent, responsive
Doctor Maier's friendly, unhurried yet thorough manner is greatly appreciated. Her knowledge and attention to detail instills my complete confidence and respect.
Dr. Maier is an outstanding physician; she is smart, patient, kind, and an excellent diagnostician. She cares deeply about her wellbeing of her patients. I feel fortunate to have found her.
Dr. Maier, She is an amazing PCP, I have been under her care since 2002
overall excellent experience in every way. I hope this Dr can become my permanent one. We clicked.
Robin Maier is fabulous. she takes her time and is thorough. she is patient and kind and listens. she provides an enjoyable experience for me and I'd highly recommend her to anyone!!!
My doctor listened to all my questions and concerns and addressed everything thoughtfully. She both went over everything that we had planned to discuss at my appointment and answered a couple of additional questions that were not directly related to the purpose of the appointment. We decided to change the dosage of one of my medications during the appointment, and the pharmacy received the update < 24 hours after my appointment.
She was very knowledgeable about my medical history. She was very kind and listened to what I had to say. Everything was done in a quick and timely manner.
Always listens carefully.
I was very impressed with this visit. The doctor was very thorough and listened to all my concerns. excellent care!
The doctor was fantastic. Spent the time needed to make sure she understood and addressed all of my concerns. I felt like a human not a collection of dysfunctional body parts
This was my first time seeing Dr. Maier and she was amazing! I'm so glad that I chose her for mine and my son's PCP. She was very nice, patient and took her time with both of us. I'm very pleased!
the provider is excellent. From the time I called until my appointment it was about 2 weeks. I was hoping to see someone sooner. an outside office schedules appointments. That makes it much more difficult to get appointments. they were supposed to call me if there was a cancelation but i never heard from anyone. that is hard to believe
I have had few providers listen to my symptoms and understand the importance of getting help and referrals. she was very informative and actually educated me on several issues I was having. she never told me what I wanted to hear but worked with.mr to develop a plan for my overall well being.
I only wish that there were more opportunities to schedule an appointment with this provider! Her schedule is quite packed.
I am totally happy that Dr. Meier is my primary care provider.
Very professional and helpful my sense was that Dr Maier really cared about me and my health
dr maier is very thorough, and she always makes sure to address all of my concerns. she always takes the necessary time I need to make sure we get through all the things we need to during my appointments. it's also very evident that she keeps up with the latest information about medical issues and treatment options.
She is obviously caring and kind, which is a nice touch in addition to her knowledge.
I'm happy with my provider
I am always well taken care of by Dr. Maier
I came to my appointment with a rather long list of things that I wanted to discuss, and Dr. Maier was incredibly patient and helpful with all of it! I know I probably took too much of her time, but she was gracious and accommodating. I am so appreciative of her time and her incredible expertise!
excellent listener; intelligent comments and questions; possible solutions to symptoms that have not been well addressed before; kind
The provider took extra time with me because of ear wax build up. I appreciated that.
I am 65 years old. Dr. Maier is the finest PCP I have ever met. She understands the important role care plays in providing treatment. She is smart, professional, and responsive to all of my questions, both in office and via email. She is also an outstanding diagnostician.
Great as always!
I really appreciated that Dr. Maier took the time to fully listen to ALL of my health concerns (I had presented quite a few at our check-up appointment), and she asked questions to clarify my symptoms and concerns- it really felt like she investigated every possible avenue to understand and identify my issues, and then provided comprehensive advice on behaviors to improve them (blood pressure, sleep hygiene, alcohol consumption, managing stress/depression, nutrition/diet/exercise). I was also suffering moderately severe allergy symptoms and after the past week of following the prescriptions and advice she recommended, I feel WORLDS better. Thank you!!! I am very happy to have her as my PCP- I trust her expertise and she is very nice and professional as well.
This was my first visit to Dr. Maier; I had been seeing Dr. Abrams before he left the practice. I felt comfortable with Dr. Maier and plan to continue with her as my regular physician.
My provider was happy to answer all of my questions. When she was not sure about something, she looked it up instead of guessing. She also seemed committed to doing whatever was necessary to make me feel better, including referring me to a specialist if things do not improve over the next couple of months.
We just love Dr. Maier
it was my first appointment and I really enjoyed meeting with her and setting up another appointment. but it took me over 45mins to be seen. my appointment time was 3:30 and I wasn't seen until after 4:20. I didn't leave the office until 5.
She is a wonderful listener and put me at ease.
All my experiences have been very good. I couldn't ask for better care from a provider.
Dr. Maier is easy to talk with, a great listener, and someone who was the first to be suspicious of something going on in my brain and MRI she ordered a few years ago led to the dx of meningioma and removal by Dr. Lunsford. She's someone who helped me tremendously. She helped to save my functioning life!
She showed good understanding of my religious preference as it relates to my health and provided options that addressed those needs.
Dr. Maier is the best physician I have ever worked with, both here in Pittsburgh and in my previous home of Chicago. She is calm, welcoming, reasoned, and good humored. I am so grateful to have found a physician who I truly trust with my medical care.
Very knowledgeable, cited studies and explained in detail what I needed to know. The most thorough and careful provider. This made the appointment time start a bit late and end a bit late, but I feel very comfortable with her knowledge. I appreciated that she looked up my concerns and commented on them.
Dr Maier was awesome!
This was a very good experience in my first experience with one who will now become my primary care doctor.
I waited over an hour after the scheduled time to bee seen by the doctor. I needed to notify the staff that I am about to leave to speed things up. I planned to do a flu shot after the visit but needed to skip it because I was too late to get back to work. My visit was rushed and the provider was in a hurry due to all the delays. I will not return to this clinic or see this provider again.
The provider was happy to answer all of my questions. She also brought up important topics that I had not thought about, like whether I needed a tetanus shot and whether I should get my hemoglobin checked.
she was the best professionally
i consider myself fortunate to have such a good provider.
I've been with this office since I moved to Pittsburgh. I had not seen this doctor until yesterday and I had a wonderful experience! I will deffinitly see her again!
I felt very rushed. When I was trying to explain stuff that was going on with me she mentioned that she had people waiting. They seemed behind on things and was never asked if I had a chance to talk about other problems I was having before rushed out. The nurses were amazing as always though. They listen and are super friendly.
