The entire UPMC organization is more about rushing folks and taking what money they can than in seeing to the patients needs in a timely manner. Patients can talk to doctors but all doctors I have met... more ignore all of what I have to say about my medical issues. Have to hash and rehash tests should another doctor see you. Orthopedic doctors want to avoid surgury like the plauge. You could have a shattered knee and all they want to give you is a simple shot - usually a $1,000++ proceedure for one shot. If you live in New Castle, try Butler Hospital or go across the border to OH. This place will only keep you in pain...
