Dr. Garibaldi is a very kind and gentle Physician who cares and takes the time to talk to and listen to my daughter. He never makes her feel as if she isn't trying hard enough to be healthy. He is very positive and acknowledges every effort she is making.
Thank goodness for Leon, because he seems to be the only person who returns phone calls. Seems every time i need to make a 6 month follow up appt. for Devin there are never any openings, so I'm told to call and when I do no one ever returns my call.There needs to be better access and communication for appt. department
We LOVE dr guabaldi!
Dr. Garibaldi is always thorough, kind and considerate. He always keeps us up to date and goes out of his way to see my daughter to work with other schedule due to us living over an hour away.
only reason they didn't have her records was because the primary care doctor hadn't sent them. they contacted the office and got them quickly and efficiently.
very good kind and professional
very knowledgeable, professional, and kind
Provider is excellent
It was a great visit with Dr. Garibaldi!
Dr. Garibaldi is the best provider ever. He takes his time with us and is so fantastic with our Son! He makes our son feel important and good about himself. We recommend him (and Children's Hospital of Pittsburgh) to everyone we know.
We love this provider! he is friendly and caring. Takes his time and is very good with my child.
Thorough and informative appointment. Dr.G was very responsive and interested in my daughter's medical history and our family medical history.
Dr. Garibaldi is a wonderful and caring doctor who we would recommend.
Dr. Garibaldi provided a very thorough exam. He was very patient, kind and he listened carefully to my concerns. We will definitely see this provider again.
Dr. Garibaldi is an excellent representation of the compassionate bedside manner that more physicians should aspire to be. Not only is he concerned about the medical condition that he's treating, but he's also concerned about my child as a whole; her comfort level at the time of the examination and down the road implications as a result of her condition. Our family is just one of so many that see him once or twice a year yet he remembered my daughter's sensitivity about an issue from 2 visits ago. It means a lot to a parent to feel like your child truly matters to their health care provider and Dr. Garibali is a rare gem in that area.
only complaint was the md asked me(her mother)some of the questions that he should have asked directly to my 14 year old(she actually mentioned that he asked me and not her). other than that , we adore the md and trust him with her care.
excellant caring Doctor. always reasuring child
We had no issues with the doctor, he seemed very nice.
Dr. Garabaldi is a kind, respectful, and delightful doctormy son and I always lookforward to seeing.
We love Dr guiribaldi! He is very sweet and great with my child as well as conveying information to us ( the parents) he addresses all of our concerns and we never feel rushed when we see him.
Good listener. Compassionate. Helpful.
We absolutely love this doctor, the staff, and Children's Hospital of Pittsburgh. Everyone is super nice to our son and us, very professional, and caring.
Our son has been seeing Dr Garibaldi for 11 years. He has been such a wonderful doctor over the years. During this past year our son has been going through a difficult medical issue. Dr Garibaldi has been extremely understanding and helpful during our difficult time. I didn't want to rate him a 10, he deserves far more. Exceptional doctor!!!
We have been seeing Dr. Garibaldi for 10 years and are completely satisfied
They calm my wife's nerve's for the appointment.
This was my first appointment with this provider. I was very impressed with how thorough he was with our visit. He took his time and listened to everything I had to say.
he is a wonderful doctor, very knowledgeable and kind
Dr. Garibaldi was great, very happy with the visit and his knowledge.
doctor did not understand we were there.was not a routine appt, was to see a specialist about an issue from his primary care doctor noticing. however, this doctor did not realize that or apparently look up the info beforehand. we drove an hour from home for this visit and got zero answers. called his office that same day about the issue and 3 days later, no answer from doctor.
we've had nothing but the best from this doctor and his staff. we've really lucked out. we even love Leon Brown. He works in the same practice and he's absolutely wonderful towards my children and us. this is the best practice !
We cannot say enough positive things about Dr. Garibaldi. Wonderful doctor and person. Has a kind demeanor and we think most highly of him.
I have two children that see Dr. Girabaldi. He always listens to any concerns I have and treats my children with respect and compassion.
We are very pleased with this provider. Our only problem is that he gets booked with appointments so quickly and this only shows how great he is that so many want him doctoring them.
very happy with care given
Diabetes clinic physicians are typically very slow to see you...this visit was particularly slow. Appointment time was 3:45 PM and doctor didn't come in until 4:45 PM.
Dr. Garibaldi was especially gracious and went out of his way to accommodate us on very short notice. Highly recommend!
we LOVE this provider, always attentive to patient and family
