ONE FABULOUS DOCTOR

Dr. Bookwalter is absolutely AMAZING! I had my surgery yesterday, his diagnosis was right on the money, AND I had some, almost immediate relief. REALLY became involved with ME. The surgery went very well, and when I got home, I actually walked, almost normally, up my front steps, which I haven't been able for a few years. The entire staff, especially Mary Alice, was incredible! Although the time for the entire healing process may take awhile, I already feel like a new person! I VERY HIGHLY recommend Greater Pgh Orthopedics, especially DR. BOOKWALTER!

DISGRACE!

After I went in to see him and he ordered MRI he wouldn't even take the time to read it. Poor bedside manner. Still looking for a doctor.

Worst receptionist ever

They do not see you when the appointment time is at hand. They take patients who are late. The woman at front desk thinks we are all stupid and can't tell time . Very arrogant. Treated like we are nothing. Sorry was recommended to him

A DISGRACE TO UPMC

I had surgery in 2006 and have pain from that day to present, "2015"that I didn't ever have before! He brushed me off as if nothing wrong! Never took pain meds til then and still go to pain clinic. He is arrogant, no bedside manner, doesn't care about his patient and thinks what he does is ALWAYS right! I WOULD NOT RECOMMEND HIM TO ANYONE! RUN AS FAST AS. YOU CAN AND FIND SOMEONE ELSE WITH BETTER REVIEWS. THERE ARE PHYSICIANS THAT CARE IF YOU DO YOUR HOMEWORK! 2.5 STARS DOES NOT SAY MUCH. HE HAS NO CHARACTER AND I DO NOT CONSIDER HIM A DOCTOR! UPMC NEEDS TO START WEEDING OUT PEOPLE LIKE HIM! I AGREE WITH THE REVIEW THAT SAID .. THEY DO NOT KNOW HOW HE RECEIVED A LICENSE!!!
