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...
Close this place! This is a hell! Went there with blood and clots in urine, 59 year old female. PA said right off the bat they would not help me, then offered urine and blood test. Came back 2 hours... more later to tell me my urine was full of blood, but otherwise I'm OK! Report this place to the state officials. They need to be CLOSED.
