best PCP ever
She is very patient, shows respect to me, and listens carefully to what you have to say. Highly recommended.
Dr. Xia is really great at making me feel less anxious. I felt that she cared about my problem.
dr. Shah ask questions about my general diet and exercise as they related to my blood pressure and cholesterol, very thorough.
I always have a great experience with this provider!

Dr. Xia is a very competent physician. She is always patient and concerned for my well being.
Dr. Xia is so compassionate and thoughtful and thorough. I love this office. The front desk staff and schedulers are always efficient and kind, and I feel I get the care I need. I will continue to refer friends and family here for their primary care needs.
Dr. Xia is very nice and patience, she helps me a lot.
I was quite relieved to be able to see my PCP so promptly after calling to make an appointment. I know in terms of scheduling that can be complicated during some times of the year. I also did not wait as long as expected to see her, and was able to easily walk through all of my concerns with her, in addition to her giving me information and talking about how we can go about future appointments to keep my health (mental and physical) in the best shape it can be.
Dr Xia pays attention to my questions and check carefully to my health concerns.
My family doctor is very professional and patient, I also like the platform provided by UPMC.
not to bad
Dr. Xia is very nice and helpful. She listened and paid attention to everything I said about my health.
She is absolutely wonderful! As an educator, I can safely say that she is excellent and patient with people. Example: She asked me what she should type in the system for next steps and follow-up. This method checks to make sure the patient understands the information the doctor has provided and also helps the doctor understand how motivated a patient is. By patients assisting in the development of their plan, they will be more invested and more likely to follow through. This is just one example of the level of excellence in care Dr. Xia provides. I especially love that we can celebrate my successes while working on ways I can improve my health. I lost weight, lowered my blood pressure and cut back on my vices, and she told me how proud she was. It was really important for me to hear that. She has an ethic of care that is truly amazing and one I haven't experienced before. I hadn't gone to a doctor in about 10 years. I'll be going back on a regular basis as long as Dr. Xia is available!!!
Dr. Xia is always a caring conscientious doctor. She first diagnosed my lymphoma 7 years ago and has cared for my general health for almost 20 years. and she is a terrific doctor.
Dr Xia is very thorough, listens to the patient and gives excellent recommendations

Xia is the BEST DOCTOR EVER!
very pleasant always helpful
I had not gone to a doctor for 8 years because I am relatively healthy but I came back to Dr. Xia because she was always respectful and informative. I was not disappointed by this trip, she is still a wonderful doctor and even though I live further away I will continue to go to her.
good listener and excellent care provider

dr Xia was very thorough, tactful and helpful
Dr. Xia made sure she entered information in the computer regarding some testing that was done that did not appear in her system. She was very thorough in making sure all information was included in my chart.
Dr. Xia is a good doctor. She is very nice to patient and her explanation is easy to understand.
patient and kind doctor , pleasant experience
I felt a bit awkward that the doctor seemed to assume that because I was married I didn't want an std test; I asked for the test and in doing so felt I had to explain details of my sexual relationships which were a bit uncomfortable to share. Overall the doctor handled this pretty well but in general it seems it would be better to assume the patient would want this as a matter of course during a physical than assume not based on relationship status.
Best primary care doctor I've ever had.
Everything was fine
I have been with Dr. Xia for a few years and she has been a very good doctor for me.

Dr. Xia is a caring and knowledgeable primary care physician.

excellent care provider
speaking mandarin is a big plus and it also gives my family convenience and certainty about our health.
she is very good provider . She has been my family and l provider for years.
This was my first appointment with Dr. Xia after seeing Dr. Abrams for many years, and I was very pleased with her.
I lost my 13 yr doctor when I relocated to the Pgh area. Consequently, I selected a new physician and was dissatisfied with her care. Then, I selected another physician and was totally unsatisfied with his demeanor, treatment, and medical competence. Then I was extremely fortunate and pleased when I switched again to Dr. Xia. This doctor has always been on top of my records, test results, condition, health needs, communicates with my other providers, and is extremely professional, competent, concerned, and very personable. I have been totally satisfied and extremely pleased with Dr. Xia's medical competence and focus on my difficult medical needs; my one fear is that I would lose her due to her relocation - because I experience proves I won't be so fortunate as to be able to obtain another physician of her caliber. I have nothing but praise for Dr. Xia's service as my Family Physician and in the several years I've been seeing her have never had anything but good experiences. She is tops!
We had a wonderful experience at Dr. Xia's office! The staff and Dr. were knowledgeable without being condescending and truly had my daughters best interest in mind.
GOOD: Doctor listens carefully and ask details. Give me relevant tests. Bad: long waiting time and also not easy to make an appointments.
When I made the app't for the yearly checkup, I included the yearly gynecological exam, but when I arrived my doctor said that I would have to schedule that as a separate app't. This was disappointing & frustrating.
always considers all aspects of my health and patiently listens to my concerns.
Dr. Xia is very knowledgable, helpful and super nice. She answered all my questions with detailed explanation.
Very helpful, extremely quick and efficient on follow-ups.
Thank you Dr Xia for taking care of me and my family!!
very professional and helpful
Very patient with me. Gave me the privacy I needed.
Dr.Xia is the BEST!
Dr. Xia is the BEST!!! I have already recommended 2 other patients to her.

I was extremely pleased with Dr. Yaqin Xia! It was my first time seeing her - Dr. Taylor was my PCP. I am looking forward to continuing my care with Dr. Xia!
I had to wait 1.5 months for an available appointment because my need wasn't urgent
Dr xia is rude not caring no compassion doesn't listen to the patient especially a new one to her never took the time to L is me what I had to ssy Co corning my health
I love this office and everyone who works there. I couldn't imagine going anywhere else!
Dr. Xia is always patient, kind, thorough, and sincere.
future plans for care are a little ambiguous. i was advised to contact a specialist, but it isn't clear that this is urgent and i can't get an appointment with a specialist for months so I don't know what I am supposed to do.
very good provider.
I carefully explained my health concern but found provider somewhat dismissive and unwilling to look past typical numbers to try to understand my particular case history and concerns. Frustrating outcome of this visit.
Dr. Xia is an excellent doctor. She actually listens, looks you in the eye, has answers and is compassionate. I would (and do) recommend her to others.
Great experience! Knowledgeable, kind, and patient during the visit. Although it was my first visit with her she caught up on my medical history and had insights into creating a plan going forward. She was present and attentive and I didn't feel like I was making her late to something else and didn't rush me through anything. I have been to so many practices where that was not the case at all and greatly appreciate her attentiveness while she saw me!!
This is a good, professional yet friendly office. I feel confident that Dr. Xia is thorough and takes good care of all of my medical needs.
Dr.Xia is always courteous and kind. She is an exceptional doctor. She received 2 new patients as a result of my referrals and they are very happy with her.
Good: No TV or music in the waiting area. Thanks!
Dr Xia is AMAZING. She does the best job of diagnosing problems that I have ever seen. She is brilliant and fantastic. Top notch doctor!
wait time is long
Dr Xia is attentive and listens to all of my concern n response to them thoughtfully. she always takes her time with me. i never feel rushed.
