My first impression of Dr. Gagne is the same impression I am left with today. He is very caring, compassionate and capable. I was treated with the utmost respect by him. He never talked down to me or made me feel small because of my obesity. I liked how he could remember the ONE death out of 1200+ surgeries that he has performed. He knew which number she was and what he could have done to improve the outcome. I have PseudoTumor Cerebri and he already knew about this disease because he had taken care of a few others with it as well. I also liked that he was not intimidated by this disease at all. That helped me to feel as if God had truly led me to the right surgeon. The office staff is fantastic. Anytime I call there, I am treated politely. I am never made to feel as if I've called at a bad time. Cindy Cotters, the nutritionist is also fantastic. She is an excellent teacher of nutrition. She is patient and answers any and all questions. Nicole, the PA is also kind and very good at what she does. She is very efficient in her role. After care is highly emphasized. They stress it at every visit. They also make sure you have every educational material available to be successful. They also stress that you can call them at ANY time with questions. Plus, there are support groups there. Before the surgery, Dr. Gagne came in to talk to me, then he went to see my family. My family said he was so confident and kind to them. After the surgery, he went to see my family again and told them that everything went well. During my stay at West Penn Hospital, Dr. Gagne came in to see me at least twice each day, sent his PA in each day and two of his attendings twice a day. How great is that? His surgical competence is out of this world and he has a great bedside manner. I would rate Dr. Gagne as top in his field. He is the only surgeon in this field that I would recommend to anyone. God has truly gifted this man, I believe He created Dr. Gagne for this exact purpose. Dr. Gagne has worked very hard to improve his skills. He is very skilled at what he does. I have been truly blessed to know him. rn
