I have been very happy with the care receive that Dr. Pistons office. He and his physician assistants treated me quickly and diagnosed and treated my problem thoroughly. I would gladly return to this office if I developed an orthopedic problem. Steve

Excellent surgeon.
in Hermitage, PA |
Absurd waiting time to see the doctor ( more than likely ,one will see a P.A. rather than the doctor,anyway). I waited almost two hours at the last appt. and finally just left since there were two others still ahead of me.

I love having a doctor who listens and cares about my health. Dr. Piston is probably my favorite by far! Nonjudgemental, helpful and caring. The wait time in the office is long, but to get the quality care and understanding, its well worth the wait. The staff are so personable, they too seem to care about the patients who are seen there. I wish that all doctors were as honorable as Doctor Piston and his entire staff.
I did not get to see Dr Piston since he is never in the office. I had to see a physicians assistant. I was told to be there early because I was a new patient. I waited in the waiting room for 2 hours. I am not exaggereting. I have never had to wait that long in any doctors office. The physicians assistant was ok but i would of liked to have seen an actual dr. Needless to say, I found a different practice to go to that i could actually see the surgeon and not his assistant.

100% I just want to thank Dr. Piston for his excellent care. Because of his wisdom and medical knowledge he recognized that a previous TKR did not go well.He presented himself as a kind and personable professional and it was real. His staff & team were all like family to us. I appreciate that he took the time and exhausted all options before doing surgery. He changed my life! I feel so much better. I know his work is hard and must be so exhausting, but it does not go unnoticed. Thank you!- LV

I just want to thank Dr. Piston for his excellent care. Because of his wisdom and medical knowledge he recognized that there were major mistakes in my first TKR from another surgeon. He was thorough and concise in his diagnosis,testings and pre-surgery prep. I appreciate that he took the time and exhausted all options before doing surgery. He changed my life! I feel so much better. I know his work is hard and must be so exhausting, but it does not go unnoticed. Thank you! ? L.V.
