this was the first time that I had to wait so long to be seen by the doctor. When he did come in he did explain that there was a problem going on with another patient and said that he was sorry for the wait. The nurse also came in to check on me and to tell me that there was an emergency going on.

1/11/2019
excellent

1/11/2019
I am very happy with Dr. Pacella's care; however, the fact remains that I may not be able to stay with him because of the divisiveness of UPMC and Highmark. I find it difficult to understand how health care providers can not come to some agreement that will not ruin--or at least make more difficult--the lives of patients who depend on their doctors and the relationships that they have built. As much as I like Dr. Pacella, the financial reality may make my continuing my care with him impossible.

Doctor Pachella and his team were excellent. My circumstances involved a health check up from my PCP, a rapid stress test, followed by a nuclear stress test, followed by a cardiac catheterization procedure and a stent - literally one day after the other. I appreciate the Doctor's office and staff very much for fitting me in. I did feel like I was on the operating table before I really understood what was going on. But I sensed from the doctor's point of view - they wanted to avert anything bad from happening given the unknowns. So the e "good rating" is really reflective of my feelings vs. an objective view of the service. The overall service was always very good!

10/20/2017
this was the first experience - very good

9/25/2017
