Upmc - Plan to wait at least two hours (average)
We showed up for our 2:45 pm appointment at UPMC Orthopaedic Surgery at 600 Oxford Drive in Monroeville, PA. The office is poorly ran and the experience rush, ineffective and horrible. By 4:00 pm we still had not been seen and no one explained any reason for the delays. Since we paid the copay we are just waiting. Avoid this office at all cost.
Upmc - Loved the hospital. Billing is corrupt
Spent the last 9 months trying to straighten out a insurance claim for X-rays that upmc Hamot coded wrong. Has taken 9 months about 20 phone calls to billing and escalation specialists. Was sent to collection because they can't bill correctly. Finally straightened out
Upmc - Very bad
The service is very slow. The nurses on night shift are terrible. Very arrogant and unfriendly. I have been at several hospital in Pittsburgh and I have not seen something like this. They is no compasión for the patients. I advise everyone to avoid this hospital .
Upmc - Takes forever
