The Patient Satisfaction Rating is an average of all responses to the care provider related questions shown below from our nationally-recognized Press Ganey Patient Satisfaction Survey. Patients that are treated in outpatient or hospital environments may receive different surveys, and the volume of responses will vary by question.
Responses are measured on a scale of 1 to 5 with 5 being the best score.
Comments are submitted by patients and reflect their views and opinions. The comments are not endorsed by and do not necessarily reflect the views of Penn Medicine.
Dr. Pyeritz focuses his research in two areas: Mendelian disorders of the cardiovascular system, especially those involving defects of connective tissue, and ethical, legal and social implications of human genetics. He is continuing his studies, begun over 20 years ago, of Marfan syndrome and related conditions, diseases in which the aorta and occasionally major arterial branches, gradually enlarge and dissect, leading to early demise if untreated. Current efforts include the identification of additional genes that predispose to arteriopathy, and improving methods for diagnosis and treating arterio-venous malformations, especially in hereditary hemorrhagic telangiectasia (HHT).
