Dr. Labarbera is the best. I have been seeing him since my daughter was born almost 20 years ago. I will be sad when I cant take my kids there any more.
Best Dr. Ever!!!!
very friendly spent adequate time great appointment
I and my child love Dr Labarber. my child has problems and is most comfortable with him
Wait time was very short and all staff very friendly and helpful
excellent provider very patient with my questions
We love Dr. LaBarbera and most of the doctors in this practice.
I really appriciate walk in hours. I am so glad this office offers walk ins.
very kind. but didnt seem concerned as to her stomache pain. it was the reason we were there.
Dr. Labarbra is amazing hes funny always takes time with the children. !!!!!!!!!!
very friendly and knowledgeable.
He was not very compassionate or understanding. He actually laughed at my son because he didn't feel he was sick long enough. I also spoke with him about about anxiety issues with my son. He had 0 compassion & scolded him for not speaking much. As he has a stuttering problem, it is the cause of his anxiety & it was not his place to scold anyone. I didn't appreciate it & neither did my son. If either of my children need a walk in service in the future & he is the provider we will go elsewhere. This is also not the first bad experience we've had with him. We almost walked out yesterday but, against my better judgment we stayed.
I have never had an issue at any appointment at CCP. Doctors and Staff are always friendly and helpful.
Our family loves Dr. Labarbera.
I love this pediatrician office, they treat us like family, are always polite, and just feel so welcomed.
waited for 45 minutes to be seen by a doctor I didn't schedule with but agreed only because I would have had to wait another hour for the scheduled visit.
I have said it before and I will say it again. Dr. Labarbera is one of the best doctors you have. He has been taking care of my kids since the beginning. My son is on ADHD medication so we have to be seen frequently. He always knows what my kids need. He always listens to me and I appreciate that.
My son loves Dr. Labarbera, yea very friendly, kind and thorough. We also love the staff at the Jefferson Hills office, they are so friendly and quick to see us!
have seen Dr LaBarbera for over 18 years. wonderful doctor!
Dr. LaBarbera is an excellent doctor. He's very compassionate.
My children are both Special Needs. Dr. Labarbra and his staff make EVERY visit a joy for us. They are kind, courteous and make us feel like any like they know EVERYTHING about us...I have been to doctors in the past that basically know us by reading our chart only. That is why I have referred Dr. Labarbra and that office to my friends and family. The twins are actually excited to go to our appointments.
My son was stung by 6 yellow jackets. When I called CCP to explain my concerns the nurse on the phone was very helpful and suggested I go to our nearest office, Jefferson Hills location. She made it aware I would be arriving prior to the 1:00 shift of walk in care. My son and I arrived at 12:48, him crying in pain from the stings. The check in staff told me to sign in and wait until the walk in staff were done with lunch. We sat with him yelling and crying out in the waiting room until 1:00. The walk in staff got us immediate attention when she learned the problem and got us a nurse and a room. However we then had to wait another 15 minutes for Dr. LaBarbera to come in with my son still crying out in pain. Dr. LaBarbera was unpleasant and standoffish and made me feel like I was dumb for bringing him in to be checked. My son is 5 years old, had at least 6 stings and was clearly uncomfortable from the stings. I had concerns of swelling and a bruised spot where the we pulled a stinger out. I shared we put a paste of baking soda and water on the spots and he told me meat tenderizer would have been better. He was dismissive. If I ever have to return for a walk in visit and see Dr. LaBarbera as the doctor on staff, I will drive the 20 minutes to Brentwood.
Dr. Labarbera is the best! Kids favorite doctor in practice! Quick, informative and responsive.
Dr. Labarbera is an excellent physician.
Dr. Labarbera is a wonderful caring doctor. my son smiles and is very relaxed with him. my husband and I think very highly of the doctor and are very pleased.
Dr Labarbera is a great PCP always makes sure my kids get the medicine/treatments they need
Dr. Labarbra is the best doctor. He always makes sure he has covered all my questions and concerns. when the appointment is almost complete and I happen to remember something important he never feels irrated or feels the need to rush me. He always has a smile on his face and he laughs a lot too, that makes my child feel very comfortable with him because my child is a little afraid of doctor visits
usually a very good experience and on time this time
we always schedule around dr labarbera's schedule because we really like him as a doctor. he listens, he respects the parents decisions, and is very patient.
Dr. Labarbera always shows compassion and concern for my children. He is a wonderful doctor, definitely a favorite in our family!
my son usually sees a female doctor and he is 11 and wanted to see a male doctor. I i had a recent experience with Dr Labarbera with my daughter and thought my son would like him. I scheduled his well check up with him. Dr Labarbera spoke to my son and most importantly listened to my son. they had a coversation...laughed...and did the exam...shots and all. He knows how to speak to a child and understands what attention a child needs while at the same time gets the job done.
I love this office and Dr. LaBarbera. they are nice and friendly and very helpful. I'd recommend this office to anyone who has kids.
I am upset that Dr. Labarbera has to say in front of my child that he is overweight at every visit.
Dr. Labarbera is my family's favorite doctor in the practice. He always takes time to talk to myself and the kids about everything that is going on in their life, explains everything that is needed or will be neededin the near future and is very understanding, patient and friendly. My kids are comfortable talking with him and prefer to seehim above anyone else because of the great way he communicates with them. Overall our favorite doctor!
this physician is fantastic, he always takes his time with my kids and is never rushed.
Happy with visit. Saw the Dr quickly and he listened to my concerns and made adjustments accordingly. Very pleased with the outcome.
Dr. LaBarbara is an excellent doctor. He is especially kind when providing care with young children. I would recommend him to all my friends and family
Waited in room for almost 45 minutes
Overall my experience with the care provider was excellent and I am happy with the experience during this office visit.
The whole staff was friendly and explained everything that I could have questions on before I even asked. Well done!
We love Dr. Labarbra. He is always very thorough and he has our complete trust with the care of our little ones.
I have always had a good experience at this Dr office.
my daughter (even tho she's shy) loves Dr. Labarbera. We walked in in Dec for a swollen lymph node and we were very worried about it.. Dr. L took time to assure us it was normal and answered all of our questions. To my surprise my daughter asked to go to only Dr. L for her check ups! I am happy she found a doctor she is comfortable with as much as we are!!
We love Dr. Labarbera and the entire staff at Children's Pediatrics South Hills!
always excellent care from dr.labarbera
This is the first time we had a longer wait before the physician came into the exam room. We were understanding due to the fact that we were a walk in, and there were many other children with the same illness.
Always willing to listen and is careful with her and understanding of a new moms concerns. takes his time always.
almost always have a good experience at this office( sometimes they get busy and it takes a while
Dr.Labarbera was wonderful with my son. He listened to all my concerns and answered all my questions. I'm really pleased with his care.
Dr. LaBarbara is amazing. He always takes his time with my kids and is very patient with them. And although they are 6 and 4 years old he listens to them the same as he listens to me when they explain what's wrong or the reason for the visit. Overall we've never had a bad experience with Dr. LaBarbera. He takes the time to listen and truly cares about the health and well-being of each child.
I love the way the Dr talked to my daughter, she was shy, but I think it's great that the doctor interacted with her.
highly recommend. Dr Labarbera was the first doctor that we visited where my daughter did not want to sit on my lap. He interacted with her to make her feel comfortable.
Absolutely love Dr. LaBarbera
We can't sing the praises of this provider enough! He goes above and beyond, answering all of our questions and spends all of the necessary time with us. We are so impressed.
We always enjoy our visits with Dr Labarbera.
Very good experience.
I have no complaints concerning Dr Labarbara or the facility in which my daughter is seen. Always professional courteous and informative.
Dr Labarbara gives the best care ever! spends extra time interacting with my son, jokes, plays with my child... makes us both laugh. It doesn't get much better than that.
There are no complaints, as far as I was concerned.
He is so wonderful with my son. Couldn't ask for a better bedside manner.
I absolutely love the staff and the practice.
We always choose to see Dr. Labarbara. He is courteous, prompt, thorough and kind when treating my children. My children are in good health and we do not need to visit the office often, but when necessary we prefer to see Dr. Labarbara.
I love how the Dr. interacts with my son!
don't usually see this dr. I really don't care for him. I felt we were rushed and he really didn't listen to my concerns
excellent Doctor. I absolutely love dr. labarbara and ccp, they are always friendly, respectful and kind to both of my children.
I've had Dr. Labarara as my children's Doctor since their births and would never consider changing!!!!
we had a great experience!
I am very pleased with Dr LaBarbera. He makes my children feel very comfortable. In addition, he always has time for my questions and concerns.
My daughter ask me if she would be seeing Dr LaBarbera because she is comfortable with his care.
Dr. Labarbera in my opinion is one of the best doctors there. I feel like he knows our family after all these years. I couldn't ask for a better doctor.
we went in on a Saturday at 1030. this was our first time visiting on a Saturday. we didn't even sit down after checking in. we were called while I was paying. the doctor saw us within five minutes. very kind and thorough.
We absolutely love this provider. He answers every single question, regardless of how silly it may be or the length of time it takes. He genuinely cares for our daughter and family. He's everything you would want from a Dr. Makes a stressful time, as enjoyable as it can be.
we are always very happy with Dr. Labarbara!
provider was very good and friendly.
