Ulka Sachdev-Ost was very professional and kind during my visit with her. This was my first visit to the Vein Center at Magee Women's Hospital. I had been a patient at the Circulatory Center for approximately 3 years and quit going there after they were bought out by another chain. I have a history in my family of circulatory issues, varicose veins, etc. and needed a new care provider for this reason. I was very pleased with the treatment I received and felt very comfortable with the staff. Thank you!
Very good care
Dr. very professional and trying to help
good experiences with visit to care provider
Scheduling the needed procedure was fast. The following day staff ordered all necessary pre-op tests at my local hospital-which made things a lot easier for me
Competent and business-like staff in this office. All of my questions answered
This appointment had been moved up due to an infected wound that needed Dr Avgerinos' recommendation ASAP. Since we were late for the appointment, Dr Sachdev and Dr Anthony Lewis ended up examining me and did an excellent job of assessing the situation, remembering me from past surgery, and reading my records.
this appointment including testing to make a diagnosis and to identify treatment. everyone was friendly and knowledgeable. the 3 month follow up and subsequent medical interventions will determine my final assessment of this provider. I really liked her. I connected easily to her and she answered my questions. the testing was thorough. I will follow up in 3 months
helpful and informative.. great dr!
Dr Ulka Sachdev-Ost had one of the BEST bedside manners of any doctor I have ever met. She was amazing and I would refer her to anyone who may need help with their veins.

Love my UPMC for life
This exam was the most thorough I have had for this condition. Dr. S explained much of what I had already suspected, and a few things that I was unaware of before. All of my questions were answered and possible options for treatment provided. I feel this consultation was everything I expected from a first visit to this specialist.
The Best of care is here! Polite, efficient, caring and informed staff and team.
Dr. Sachdev is excellent at what she does. Not only is she is a wonderful vascular surgeon, but she is genuinely concerned about the patient as a "whole". Dr. Sachdev is not only an excellent surgeon, but she is very kind, caring and compassionate. I feel very blessed to have her as my doctor and all the medical staff and professionals in her office.
great doctor! Dr. Sachev! VERY impressed!
I had a wonderful experience with Dr.Ulka. She is the best.
excellent care, very impressed with the immediate diagnostics, technicians, office staff and doctor.
My opportunity to visit this office due to leg veins and was completely satisfied.However, prior went to USA veins for an appointment at was told I needed extra treatment on both legs with 2 problem veins. Getting a second opinion has resulting in avoiding these so-called procedures. Thank you!!!I learned to only go thru UPMC sites even if they preapporove off-site locations
experience was very good, answered ally questions
Dr. Sachdev and her fellow Doctor Ab..... were wonderful and very patient with me and my various conditions
Dr.ulka Sachdev is Vascular surgeon and she is examing my varacoise veins presently.
Overall, very good.
excellent doctor, great support staff
Excellent experience with this provider. She was understanding, clear, compassionate, and I wouldn't hesitate to go back again if I have a problem. Already recommended this provider to my family with similar issues.
pleasant and talked to me during procedure
Dr. Sachdev is a wonderful professional. She has done a tremendous job helping me take care of my intermittent claudication problems. She's the best! I appreciate being her patient.
Despite the long wait in the exam room, this provider was very thorough and helpful.
My visit is ALWAYS good.

like Dr. but waiting in exam room was a bit much.
As stated in another survey. I like the professional spirit of the staff at maghee.
Excellent visit. good provider, good people.
Excellent doctor, very worthwhile visit, listened well, I left the office knowing I was in very capable hands. She is a very intelligent young lady, with exceptional personal skills.
Qucik, efficient visit
very personable and caring
very pleased with the care
I think the wait time to see the Dr is way too long. makes me not want to come back.
I liked Dr. Sachdev very much. However, I spent 35 minutes in a freezing cold exam room waiting for the doctor. During that time, no one came in to check on me or tell me she was running late. There was no communication whatsoever. When she did come in, she apologized for the delay which was nice but someone should have come in prior to that to give me an update.
everyone at the vascular center has always been extremely helpful, caring, friendly and professional with me.
support staff made it a pleasant appointment! meeting people at the window that are pleasant and curtious and let you know what's going on in your lane is great. DR Ulka and Dr You thank you for listening for 15 minutes. I believe my 2 issues will be resolved shortly.
Dr. Sachdev and the resident (John) working with her, were both very thorough, courteous, and compassionate. They listened to my concerns and answered any questions I had. I feel that I left the office with a better understanding of my condition and consequences associated with treatment if needed. I would definitely recommend them to anyone in need of a vascular doctor.
Excellent care and communication from this provider
The doctor is very friendly and sees to genuinely care
