Doctor Zarmakoupis listened to our concerns and did her best to fully explain the treatment and answer our questions...I feel like appointments were rushed. I mainly met with the doctor through video appointments and only once in person during the egg retrieval process. She was helpful and reassuring in person but the interaction was brief and most updates were with nursing staff
The [UPMC Magee] clinic itself rushes through appointments and doesn’t take the time to talk and definitely makes you feel like a number while completing blood work ultrasounds and other tests. All My appointments with the doctor have been virtual and not in person...The clinic is great at working together. It is more of a team approach rather than just one doctor at times. I did not love having virtual appointments and would prefer to meet with the doctor in person. It has more of a cold approach that way and harder to connect with the doctor.
