“I live in KY and was diagnosed with stage IV signet cell appendix cancer, the worst of worst. I grew up in western PA and I had no doubt that UPMC is the place I need to go to get treated. Dr. Pingpank is professional and very accurate in diagnosis. He is part of that category of doctors who take time and listen to the patient’s questions. This great man saved my life!”
