Their staff is very friendly and professional. The Doctor stated that my son's pediatric EKG - which happened to be performed at a non-upmc hospital - was in error. She stated that it was read as an "adult" and not a child. It showed a serious heart condition. Dr. Drickman redid the EKC and said my son was fine and had no condition. After my research, I located the Dr. who did the first reading and found that it was Dr. Drickman's colleague at Children's hospital and it was not in error. Now, which pediatric cardiologist do I rely upon. The colleague who says my son has a serious condition? Or Dr. Drickman who says there's no problem. Dr. Drickman should not have stated that the first EKG was read "as an adult" before knowing the fact that it was read by a cardiologist at Children's hospital. I would not recommend this Doctor.
