I am so happy that Dr. Carlitz is with UPMC. I have already referred her to several friends.
Very great experience, Stacey was beyond nice and made me feel very comfortable. It was also extremely helpful for me to figure out the answers to all the questions I had.
This was my first visit since Magee took over my gynocologists practice. I was impressed with the doctor and the staff was very nice
I was seen immediately when I arrived and my medical history was recorded and discussed. I had been a patient of Dr Stacy Carlitz years ago when she was at Nason OB/GYN and I liked her very much!
Dr. Carlitz was amazing with my daughter!! I couldn't have hand picked a more appropriate professional dealing with my 14 year old. even her nurse was amazing!
amazing as always!
She was very kind, friendly, and easy to talk to. She was very gentle, quick, but thorough. This was probably the most comfortable exam I have ever had.
wonderful doctor staff great also
she did not let me talk. she talked at me. this was my first time seeing her. very disappointed. I almost left the appointment before the exam was done. I will no longer be a patient at this practice
Stacey was wonderful. Took the time to talk. She was very profession and very uplifting.
I truly expected a great visit from Magee Women's Specialty Service since they seemed to have a great reputation, but I have to question that. the nurse listened to more of my concerns than the doctor. In fact, I don't even remember the doctor asking if I had any concerns. I had to change providers due to insurance reasons. I chose Magee because I thought they had a good reputation. For a first visit to their office it was disappointing. The nurse and secretary we're good and addressed my concerns. The doctor, however, did not ask if I had any concerns, seemed nonchalant about my medical history and tests, talked the whole way through the exam and was out the door before I felt like I could even ask anything. Not the kind of service I expected from Magee.
Overall, was a very positive experience
Dr. Carlitz is always nice and very knowledgeable in the health field. I am so glad that I have her for a Doctor. I highly recommend her to friends and family.
the best place to go and feel like you can be yourself,
very nice and quick
She was very thorough and answered all my questions.
The dr and her staff are excellent. I was nervous to go and have this exam done but they made you relax before, during, and after the exam.
it is alway a good experience with Dr. Carlitz
Dr. Carlitz is wonderful and I would recommend her to anyone!
Dr. Carlitz rushed my appointment so much that I did not get to speak with her about all of my health concerns. She switched my birth control and did not give me a chance to express my concerns about it. She spent a total of 8-10 minutes with me and did not give me many chances to respond to her statements about my own health. I am sure that she is very knowledgeable, but I cannot say that my first appointment with her made me trust her judgments at all. She is very friendly, but I am nervous about continuing under her care.
Dr. Carlitz always takes time to listen to my concerns and I believe she genuinely cares for her patients. She is very professional and caring and that means so much to me.
Stacey has excellent bedside manners and I would love to see her again! I was going through something very awful and she did all she could to make me comfortable and that much easier for both me and my boyfriend, and I thank her for that!!!
I love how Dr. Carlitz listens to me and makes eye contact. Her bedside manners are phenomenal and she makes me feel comfortable.
Dr Carlitz was one of the best physicians I have ever seen, she is a real treasure.
Dr. Carlitz has a unique way of making an unpleasant exam be very relaxing and fast. She keeps you talking which takes your mind off of the exam. Her positive mood and attitude is a breathe of fresh air! I enjoy going to my OB/GYN appointment now.
I fully trust Stacey and would highly recommend her as a professional physician to friends and family.
Good appointment. Provider and staff were helpful and friendly. Had very little wait time.
Very kind and knowledgeable! Would love to have her deliver my baby if she's on call!
Dr. Carlitz is caring and professional.
she was very easy to talk to, understanding and knew my past history being this was my first visit with her! will certainly keep her as my OBGYN!
She is very pleasant and thorough
awesome all the way around
I just think the provider didn't ask me any question about my health and how I was doing. very little time with me
very friendly and personable
She is my favorite provider at the practice. I can only hope she is the one that delivers my baby.
love my new dr she is great
This was the first time I saw Dr. Carlitz. She was very nice & professional. I was very pleased with the visit.
Dr.Carlitz is the best doctor I've ever had ! She makes you feel comfortable and actually cares about you and your situations.
I absolutely love doctor Carlitz and request her each time. Her personality and being so down-to-earth makes me feel very comfortable. I just wish she would not have been so rushed.
I absolutely love this office and Dr. Carlitz! From the first time I ever met her, I knew without a doubt she's an awesome caring doctor. She literally takes the time to sit down and talk and she truly cares about you.
Dr. Carlitz took time to answer all of my questions and explained things in the best way possible. She went above and beyond to treat me with care and respect and gave me the answers that I could not get at other offices. She is so kind and compassionate and sincere
this was my first time seeing this doctor. I was so impressed! it has been so long since I've walked into any healthcare appt and felt so at ease. She was beyond professional, upbeat, and just a wonderful doctor.
Very positive first visit. The staff were all very positive, caring, friendly. My daughter recommended Dr. Carlitz and I am very pleased with my choice.
Dr. Carlitz was very encouraging and understanding of my concerns.
she scrramed at me and was very unprofessional!
Dr. Carlitz is a very caring, personable and very knowledgeable doctor. She explains everything as she goes through her examination. I feel confident in her exam results and would refer others to her.
saw this doctor for first time since my doctor retired. was very satisfied.
Absolutely love Dr. Carlitz. Very personable and makes you feel comfortable.
My original appointment was rescheduled due to the doctor going on maternity leave. The office was able to reschedule my appointment in a fair amount of time. However, I now had several kids with me. I was worried since it was a gynecologist appointment. However, the nurse and doctor were wonderful and had them go to another room during the exam. Very happy with this office!
Have already recommended my friend to Dr. Carlitz. Her bedside manner, professionalism and overall kindness made me schedule with her again.
Dr Carlitz goes above and beyond. She treats you like a family member. So glad I have her as my obgyn. I wouldn't see anyone else.
Dr Carlitz went above and beyond what was expected. being my first visit, she made me feel like I've known her my whole adult life, which is very comforting and makes me want to have all future appointments with her.
SHE IS THE VERY BEST!!! GENTLE LOVING UNDERSTANDING. CONSIDERATE .
very kind and courteous
this was my first visit with Dr. an she was fantastic--open, honest, and very knowledgeable. This was greatly appreciated. great first impression!!
Dr. Carlitz is above and beyond an excellent doctor!! She is kind , thoughtful and I would recommend her to anyone!!
I have only hd 2 appointments w this provider and am very happy that I have established a dr/ pt relationship w her. Being in healthcare my entire life, I am very particular about my healthcare providers.
dr carlitz and her assistant kelcie are the very best. they make you feel at ease and comfortable.
dr. carlitz is a caring, friendly ob/gyn she listens to any concerns or questions you have. She makes you feel like you are family and makes you as comfortable as she can.
As a new patient of Dr. Carlitz, I was a bit nervous. She was very sweet and my nervousness went away.
Dr.Carlitz is the best doctor ever . She takes time to get to know you and things about you. It's nice to have same doctor everytime because then it's more personal . I dont like when I have a different doctor because you wanna get to know the doctor who's gonna deliver your baby .
Dr. Carlitz is truly one the BEST! You can tell she loves what she does because it shows through with the care, respect and thoughtfulness for not only her patients, but the staff around her. I feel so lucky to have found such a great doctor!!
Dr. Stacey Carlitz makes me feel so comfortable. She is incredibly thorough and knowledgeable. Anytime I have been put with another doctor for my appointments I have not been treated with as good of care in my opinion. I always request her, because of the amazing care she gives!
she is excellent
Dr. Carlitz and her staff have always provided the best care and patient experience since my first appointment and through each subsequent appointment. Not only is the staff competent, but they are kind and caring towards you as a patient. Dr. Carlitz takes time to explain things in a manner that is easy to understand. She considers the patient in the treatment plan and you truly feel like she is caring for you in the same way she would a friend or family member. While it is clear she has experience treating patients with the condition I was dealing with, she had a way of making you feel that what you were experiencing was important. She didn't forget that even though they deal with these issues ever day, for you as patient, this is new... she never made you feel like you were just another set of symptoms.In both office and hospital setting, it was clear Dr. Carlitz was committed to providing best care possible. She was efficient, effective, and most importantly, concerned about you as a patient.
Very personable. She made me feel comfortable to ask questions.
Dr. Carlitz immediately addressed my concerns and reassured me everything is going smoothly. She is very compassionate and sensitive and knows what she is doing. I am very grateful for my appointment with her.
Dr. Carlitz was very kind and reassuring. She answered any questions I had and was quick and efficient.
great place to go very nice dr and staff I will go there from now on
I always have a good experience when in the office. Both Dr and staff are very friendly and informative.
I have only been a patient for 2 years and Dr. Carlito has been great both visits. She is friendly and talks about my overall health in general. You can tell she truly cares about her patients.
Dr. Carlitz has made me feel very comfortable at every visit. She never rushes & answers all my questions. I feel that she is the best gynecologist I have ever had & it feels good to have someone I can rely on
Dr. Carlitz is wonderful. I wish all doctors were as sincerely concerned about patients.
Great caring physician
She was AWESOME!!!
Dr Carlitz is an excellent physician. February, 2019, I had bleeding from my uterus. Dr Carlitz referred me to Dr Boisen who diagnosed me with Stage 1 endometrial adenocarcinoma. Dr Carlitz quick and accurate assessment of my situation helped me get the correct cancer treatment. Her quick response might of made a difference in the stage of my cancer. I am very grateful for Dr Carlitz's quick diagnosis.
Dr. Carlitz is amazing!!! She is so kind and friendly. She explains everything so well and is very knowledgeable. She has made this pregnancy enjoyable.
overall a good experience. my only complaint is that there wasn't a lot of time spent with me
Dr. Carlitz is a compassionate, yet thorough care provider. She answered all of our questions and actively listened to our concerns. Her bedside manner and professionalism helps us feel confident in delivering with UPMC.
I love Dr. Carlitz and staff.
I really like her, but she seems to be in a hurry. Doesn't always listen, just talks. I sometimes feel like she could listen more
Stacey and the nurse I saw for my check up went above and beyond to make me feel comfortable. The obgyn is not a place that I like to be given my history with infertility, its usually a very emotional experience for me! This visit was much different, the staff made me feel very relaxed and the situation very light. I would also like to add that I overheard a conversation in the hallway before the Dr. and nurse/assistant entered the room for my exam, in which the Dr. asked the assistant if she was doing ok or if she felt like she needed help (it was busy). That said spoke to me, a doc who treats her staff well speaks volumes! Everyone was great, the girl who checked me out was sweet as pie! I'm actually looking forward to my next visit so thank you for that!
I just really love this provider... she makes you feel like you are somebody and not just a number... can't say enough about her
I was extremely anxious at this appointment, and was Dr. Carlitz last patient of the day, she did not rush me out the door and answered every one of my questions, compassionately and intelligently. She gave me confidence and educated me about the childbirth process that I have been so worried about, and gave me valuable insight I had yet to receive. My husband and I are so appreciative, and look forward to our next appointment with her.
seems like she is always in a rush. only wants to talk about what she has slated for the week and seems irritated when you ask a question pertaining to the future. she is very nice and knowledgeable but I wish she spent a little more time being aware that each patient is different and don't all fit a cookie cutter model. some people are more comfortable and able to relax better with being well educated about present and future versus only educated in the moment.
This was my first time seeing Dr. Carlitz. I did not feel as though she reviewed my medical history before seeing me. She did not ask any questions about any concerns I might have. She was very nice and friendly but seemed rushed.
Dr. Carlitz was very kind and helpful; however, she was extremely rushed. I had not been to a gynecologist in a long time and had several concerns I wanted to talk to her about. I was only able to ask one question before she rushed out. She also did not perform a pelvic exam.
this was my first visit with Dr Stacey Carlitz and she was very pleasant with an excellent bedside manner. I recommended her to my daughter but was disappointed that she was unable to get an appointment until June.
I have had nothing but good experiences at this office since becoming a patient there. All staff have been friendly and very helpful
My first appointment was not able to be kept because the provider never requested my previous medical records so they said I couldn't have an appointment with the clinic without the medical records showing I had a special female problem in order to be there. I felt this was not professional and since I waited 3 months for the appt, they had plenty of time to send me releases IF they required to have documents and did not see this in their REVIEW of the records.
Dr Carlitz is great at making you feel comfortable and answering any questions you may have! She is a great provider!!
always pleasant & courteous @ my appt
Dr. Carlitz was excellent! I greatly appreciate all she did for me!
I am very pleased with my experience and appreciated Dr. Carlitz's friendliness.
this was the best experience in this office. Dr Carlitz and her nurse Kelcie were fabulous! I'll come back to see them again and again !
Dr. Carlitz was very personable and made me feel very comfortable throughout my exam.
Dr. Carlitz is a vibrant, fun personality. She makes the environment comfortable and enjoyable.
Dr Carlitz is caring. understanding and compassionate.
fast and efficient
This was the first visit with new doctor. I liked her, very friendly and easy to talk to.
she was really nice and gentle, but I couldn't get a word in to talk to her.
provider should be cautious when speaking outside of room patient heard provider say didnt want to preform internal exam also provider made comments about scheduling for the provider convience not patient`s even though patient was experiencing loss and very judgemental about contraceptive and why discontinued and also patient felt judge that wanted to have d&e instead of allow natural process to occur for more emotional reasoning over all just felt as though i was an inconvenience to care provider and not actually treated as a person
She was very friendly and easy to talk to as well as the nurse/assistant.
Dr. Carlitz is wonderful. I am glad I made the change to this facility.
She was very pleasant and made me feel comfortable.
This was my first visit with Dr Carlitz. I feel like she talked more than listened.
Dr Carlitz is very gentle and caring. I just switched offices so I could once again be her patient.
I love Dr. Carlitz. she always comes in with a smile and she always treats me like a friend not a patient.
I felt the doctor talked more about herself than with me as a patient.
The doctor made me feel like I was stupid and it was wrong for me to worry about my health and for calling to make an earlier appointment because of my concern.
excellent doctor! made my daughter feel at ease.
my visit was great. Did not have to wait long in the waiting room, the doctor did not take long to come in the room, she made me feel comfortable and not awkward because of the exam. Very nice lady and helpful. the experience overall in a 10
respected my decisions & opinions
I really like Dr Carlitz and I'm hoping she stays in this area. She's very pleasant and made me feel comfortable with her great bedside manner.
Dr. Carlitz was nice, however, I did not feel as though my exam was as thorough as my 20+ years were with Dr. Pike. When I was asked if my 22 y/o daughter was given the HPV shot, the rest of MY visit was why she should've been given the shot, and the doctor said she was attaching HPV information to my visit summary sheet. I'm sorry, but my daughter is now 22. She is capable of making her own decisions. I didn't feel the need to be lectured about my choice to not have her vaccinated when she was 12.
My care provider was so very pleasant and friendly. She was so easy to talk to. She treated me as if we had known each other forever and this was my first visit. This definitely by far, was the best office visit I have ever had with any doctor. She comes highly recommended.
I would have liked the provider to send more time looking at my history or at least asking me about any health conditions. None were discussed and considering I'm normally hypertensive and pregnant, I feel this should be necessity.
This was my first visit with this physician. She was very friendly, listened to my concerns and offered suggestions.
Dr. Carlitz put me at ease from the very beginning of my appointment. She listened to my concerns and explained everything to me very well. I would be very comfortable seeing her for all of my gynecological issues and annual exams.
This was the first time I meet with this provider. She seems nice. She did not give me as good of a breast exam as I thought she should have (being that I am a breast cancer survivor) and the rest of the exam was fast! Which is ok as long as she's really checking me out. She talks a lot but I'm not sure she listens. I could not get a question or comment into the conversation. Her questions required one word answers that I gave but then she was out the door-see you next year. No, do you have any questions or concerns before I leave!? Just not what I am used to with my other and former doctors. And I really didn't have any questions and would not have held her up-it just would have been nice to have been asked.
This was the first time seeing Dr. Carlitz as she is a new physician in the practice. She was very informative and helped me to understand and did not talk "over my head" and made me feel comfortable. My experience with her was very positive and I would highly recommend her.
Dr. Carlitz was SO nice and super positive! She was very to the point but they way she talked to my husband and I was very comforting.
the dr was very nice and very knowledgeable. however, she talked so much and talked over me that I couldn't ask any questions about my medical diagnosis.
dr was gentle, kind and had empathy which I've never experienced from a Dr at UPMC!
The nurse, Kelsey and Dr. Carlitz were wonderful providers. They listened to my questions and answered everything I had asked. Dr. Carlitz was very down to earth and made me feel "normal" when asking questions. She also is one of the first Gyne physicians who looked at me entirely, instead of just focusing on the female parts.
it was my first visit at this office and I felt very comfortable around everyone. Dr. Stacy explained everything so well.
She was very kind, respectful, and helpful.
I'm so glad I switched Over to Magee women's health. Stacey Carlitz is great at all she does, she actually listens to what you have to say. She is very polite and make me feel comfortable.
