UPMC Mercy Hospital has some of the most amazing nursing staff; who are very welcoming, warm, and accommodating. The nurse was able to get my IV in one shot (learned later that the nurse worked in NICU). My endoscopy was conducted by a great gastroenterologist Dr. Glorioso. The nurse anesthetists also were best. They ensured that I was comfortable and did not suffer from any nausea using a trick, which I do not think many new nurses would know – using a pad which is doused in alcohol. When I informed them that I wanted to watch a basketball match between Houston and LA Lakers, they promised to do it after the procedure. And they sure did switch on the TV while I was getting wheeled into recovery. A lovely gesture. Best hospital experience that one could ever have.

Had one of the worst experiences at UPMC Mercy Hospital. These guys do not have any mercy. I had gone to the hospital with severe pain in my back. The hospital first made me wait for nearly two hours and then the doctor comes in and talks for two minutes and then prescribed me a painkiller. No diagnosis, no scans, no use of the stethoscope, nothing. And I was billed $350 for this. Would never revisit this place.

We had a wonderful hospital experience while we were at UPMC Mercy. My wife was in long labor and was shifted to the L&D ward of UPMC Mercy from the nearby birthing center. My wife was recommended an emergency C-section. The staff members, nurses, and doctors treated my wife with the utmost respect. We were well-informed about every single decision that these doctors took. They also took great care of my daughter. We love this wonderful hospital and would use to meet all our healthcare requirements
