The Best!

Review of Erin Scanlon


Erin makes good decisions and seems very knowledgeable for all conditions. She spends a good deal of time listening to the patient and explaining what her thoughts are on the patients conditions. Her recommended treatments always seem appropriate.

Review of Dr. Jaffe

- in Pittsburgh , PA |

Great doctor to work with and for. Always puts patients needs first. She has exceptional ability to absorb all the information given to her to treat with care, compassion and a wholistic approach. She brings the whole team. ( patient, family, and care givers ) together to meet the needs of the patient.

Review of Dr. Embrescia

- in Pittsburgh PA |

I highly recommend Dr. Embrescia. She is thorough, easy to talk to, and responsive. Unlike the other reviewer, I did not have problems scheduling an appointment and find her easy to reach on the phone.

Review of Erin Scanlon

-Pittsburgh |

Generally handles medical problems such as URI acceptably. Provided joint injection and did an excellent job. Is not up to date on current information on mammograms and cancer screening. Not collaborative in working out treatment plans. Refused to treat me for a problem because i do not accept her ideas on screening. Because she was not aware of current research by medical researchers (not alternative practitioners) and seemed to be manipulative, i am again looking for a new practitioner.

Review of Dr. Embrescia

-Pittsburgh, PA |

Don't bother trying to establish care with this group. It is difficult to schedule an appointment in a timely manner. Their schedule to see Dr. Embrescia is blocked off for 1-2 months in advance. The last two appointments I've had have been cancelled last minute by the doctor. I specifically wanted to see a DO, which is why I chose Dr. Embrescia, however both times I talked to scheduling, they tried to push me to see anyone with availability in the practice.

Review of Dr. Weinberg

-Pittsburgh, PA |

This amazingly prideful doctor strikes again. She isn't just incompetent, but dangerous. Stay away from her. She puts her "professional " arrogance before her patients well being. Stay away from this charlaton.... far away.

Friendly, accessible, and a good communicator. Had some hip issues flare up and she explained potential causes and suggested physical therapy, which worked
