Patient Comments (2)
Monroeville, PA |
Dr. Rath diagnosed and treated my uveal melanoma in 2012. She is extremely professional and knowledgeable. She answered all of my questions about my diagnosis, treatment options, and what to expect in the short term and long term. I was very stressed out, having cancer inside my eye. She was concerned, but calming. I highly recommend her.
Bethel Park, PA |
Very rude and impatient. You feel like she is rushing you out the door. She may be a fine Doctor. My complaints are solely with demeanor and bedside manner. Not one iota of compassion comes from her.
