A while back I moved from the city to the North Hills. I'm looking for a new doc since my previous one is now 45 minutes away. Can anyone recommend a primary care physician in the North Hills? I've asked co-workers, friends, my previous doctor down in Fox Chapel, even a friend who's a radiologist, but no one can give me even one PCP's name in my area. I'm looking for the following:

- Internist or Family Medicine practice
- Weekend and/or evening hours
- Straight talk but not rude - I don't like doctors who talk down to me, but I do appreciate respect
- Friendly staff and reasonable wait times for appointments
- Practice somewhere in the McCandless / Franklin Park / Wexford area. North end of McKnight Rd. is ok. Prefer not to go all the way to Allison Park or Cranberry.

Thanks in advance for any help you can provide.

I used to go to Wexford Medical Practice, sort of across from Bally's, off of 19. I was always able to get an appointment quickly, wait time was never bad, and for awhile I didn't have insurance, and the price was pretty reasonable still. Anyhow, I saw Dr. David Miller and Dr. Fred Florian. Both very nice.

Dr. Gordon Gold is my PCP - he has an office at Passavant Hospital in the Professional Building.

Here is the UPMC listing on him (don't think he has his own website and the Highmark listing can't be linked to directly as far as I know)
