Deb Pierce, MD, MPH, first came to Rochester from Worcester, Massachusetts, for residency training in June, 1992. Upon completion of her residency, she returned to Massachusetts, where she was on faculty at the rural training site for the University of Massachusetts. After three years, however, the "Rochester magnet" effect kicked in, and she happily returned.

She is an avid amateur photographer who vigorously avoids the other side of the lens. In her spare time she can be often found exploring local (and national!) parks with her camera, or home with her three cats.

Ratings & Reviews

At URMC, we believe that patients should be empowered to make the right decisions regarding their personal healthcare. To do so, transparency is critical. URMC partners with Press Ganey, to survey our patients about all aspects of their care experience. We are now putting this pertinent information at your fingertips by displaying star ratings for our providers along with anonymous patient comments on our website. This will help you make better-informed choices about how and with whom you seek care. Click here to learn more about the surveys used to generate this vital information.
