The reason I go to UPMC is clear.. they have only one focus: take care of patients. This is seen as soon as you enter the er.. if they see someone in dire need of help they don’t waste time asking for your medical details, they take you directly inside. No delay in meeting the doctor, everything happens with the blink of an eye.

Normally go to UPMC east but it was crazy busy on Friday night so I booked an appointment with Shadyside and it wasn’t too long a drive. The kind of love and care I received from the staff members at this hospital is just something else. They have good residents working here, won’t make you feel uncomfortable in fact I didn’t even know he was a resident until he told me.

Very smart and efficient. I would recommend this hospital to anyone who needs urgent care. At the same time if you’ve booked an appointment over here they make you wait which is crazy. But other than that no complaints. Thank you, all my friends at Shadyside who made my stay pleasant.

A good place to go especially for people who do not adjust well with the hospital environment I am a neat freak and NEED my own space to be able to sleep well and in this hospital that was possible. Didn’t feel uncomfortable at all the nurses came in the morning much after I awoke and things were just dandy. Good hospital.

Cannot fathom a time when Shadyside’s UPMC has let me down because they have always exceeded my expectations. Not just the fact that the staff is like my family – very helpful, chirpy, and always on their feet. But because if you look into their eyes you see that they really care about the patients. It’s not just about doing the 9-5 job and going back hoem for them. They stay back for hours just to help patients and that’s something I don’t see in many other hospitals so kudos. Had come here 2 weeks ago because I had bad pelvic pain. Thankfully they took good care of me at Shadyside’s UPMC like they always do.

Patients couldn’t be in more capable hands than at UPMC.
My mother in law needed hip replacement surgery and I brought her here because I know Dr. O’Malley on a personal level and he is one of the best surgeons there is on this planet.
5 stars all the way, buddy!

Very incompetent hospital I don’t know how they are so established because if they seem to misplace a simple payment receipt of just 2 days ago I don’t know what else to call them BUT incompetent. Had to run around for the receipt for more than a week before I finally got it. Not cool.

Don’t know how they treat patients here but they overcharge like mad. What scams.
First of all my insurance was ready to pay most of the charge but when the hospital bill came out I was sweating my balls off because the bill was $30k. Even though my daughter needed urgent surgery and everything we were only in the hospital for a few days.. is that really reasonable?
How do I explain this to my insurance?

From check in to discharge everything was fine here. Even though there were a few places where I didn’t agree with the way they run their practice, but when it came to my surgery, everything was top notch quality. Reason for hating UPMC at Shadyside: if you look carefully and go through the strategies used in various stages you’ll see that they are money driven. Not much importance given to the patients you’d feel. But when I was asked to get surgery here by my personal physician I wasn’t shaken.

Even though I did a tone of research on the place and checked it out a few times before going in I knew they were at least a good medical institution with a lot to offer. Besides the staff here will have you falling in love with them. More than them being good at their jobs it’s the fact that they’re just so darn caring. Like a nurse that isn’t even assigned to you but ran into you once when you were in pre surgery will come up to you right before your surgery and say kind words, fill you up with confidence. And it’s not like they have to do that.. they do it because they care.

So in that regard I want to commend UPMC, even though I don’t like other branches as much. Plus, not going to lie, it was really well executed and organized. Everything fell through better than expected. Their patient monitoring system was very thorough so even if you have family members checking up on you you don’t have to be alarmed at any point. And again, be it the doctors, surgeons, nurses, technicians, or any one else.. they are very warm and always upbeat. You won’t find a single person frowning here despite their harsh work hours.
