the appointment with Dr. John was the most satisfying and comfortable one I have had since I go there.
above and beyond excellent
Dr. John is by far my favorite UPMC pediatrician that we have been to so far. He is so kind and thorough. I wish we could see him every visit!
He is absolutely the best; extremely helpful, knowledgeable, respectful, and kind. Plus, he took the time to explain everything and really seemed to care genuinely about my son's complete health and well-being.
Excellent dr who takes time to get to know you!
dr John is excellent he is very up to date in all health matters and has a very positive approach with my son
Dr Chad John is a wonderdul Dr. The way he approaches a kid during a visit is great, he makes sure the child is comfortable before he is seen, I would surely recommend him to everyone who has a kid
I will never see Dr Eric again! I will even call to ensure he is not the provider I would see for walk in and if he would be I'd go as far as to travel to another location. I brought my son in bc he had a fever and was not eating I thought strep never did dr Eric mention this could be flu or even test him for it. I asked about him being contagious bc he has 2 brothers and we were having a birthday party. dr Eric said it was just a virus. so far 4/5 of us have gotten the flu! this could have been prevented I feel. I am furious with this dr and will not recommend the practice due to him. I feel that he didn't listen or ask questions or this would've been tested for. I assumed flu was vomiting he definitely knew better. poor doctor!!!
We absolutely love Dr. John and try to schedule with him whenever possible. We appreciate how down to earth and calm he is.
We were very happy with Dr. John! We have only seen him one other time in the years we have been going to this office and he was absolutely wonderful!
dr John seemed to really care and did not rush thru my sons visit. this was our first time to the practice and we were very pleased. everyone was friendly and professional.
Dr John listened to what me and my son had to say, and although he is not one of the drs my son normally sees, he had a good grasp on his medical history.
Dr. John was wonderful!
Dr John was very patient and thorough. Very nice. liked him a lot.
the provider is good.
I really appreciated that the staff was able to accommodate my request that my daughter also receive a flu shot during the appointment.
The visit answered all of our questions and helped us feel at ease as first time parents of a newborn.
I am so happy with this staff . Haveng seen Dr John in years with my kids and I will request to see him on all their well check ups. He is fantastic.
good check-up - good talk with doctor regarding teenagers
Dr. John is a FANTASTIC doctor. He is so supportive and helpful, kind and patient, knowledable and easy to talk with!!
dr. john went above and beyond with our visit. compared to most
Dr. John is always wonderful, we love seeing him!
dr John is the best!!
the only thing i objected to was the doctor asking my 6-year old if she did extracurricular activities, then explaining to me how important these are for children. When money is very tight, these extras become less realistic, and made for yet another difficult discussion with my child after the appointment.
He was friendly and efficient. This was my 18 year old checkup.
The Dr was very thorough and had a few very good and appropriate conversations with my teenage son a about depression, peer pressure, sex and other issues. I don't know if this is normal at a check up at this age but I was extremely impressed with this Dr and the issues that he brought up. This ended up being a very valuable appointment and opened the door for further discussion on these topics with my son. Great job!
Dr. John is the absolute best! I trust him with my child's healthcare and have the utmost respect for him!
Dr. John has been very helpful in further understanding the difficulties our son has with focusing. He was also very informative about the HPV vaccine and how it can benefit our child.
We love the SF office. Everyone is always very helpful and they are quick to see your child. I don't remember seeing doctor John before (typically see one of the Kramers) but he was great with my son and very helpful in giving ideas on how to deal with my son's eczema. That's not even what we were there for but he noticed it and gave some other ideas we haven't tried yet on how to treat it. Great experience and I have recommended the practice numerous times to friends and co-workers.
Excellent as always
Dr John is terrific. We appreciate his patience and his wisdom. he really cares about our well being. He's a gift
I like that dr John always provides personal examples to correlate to the stage of parenting that we are in. I respect his experiences and opinions
He referred him immediately to Children's Hospital and told us to just go. That was great.
We were not impressed with the Physician. This was our first time here and this Dr pretty much made it seem like our previous Dr had no idea what he was talking about when it came to certain things with my child. I will not be scheduling with this Physician anymore. I will schedule with another Dr in the practice. He did not wash his hands before or after touching my child and he had no care in what I had to say.
We had no problems other than a wait to check out because that employee was on the phone with another parent; overall, the well care exam was a good experience
Best communication I have ever had with any doctor
lobedvhow much time was spent with my child.
He took a lot of time with us and was very thorough when explaining what he was looking for and why. I appreciated that.
We love this office because all of the staff and doctors are excellent. They clearly care about the kids and are fantastic at what they do.
we had an excellent experience at our Dr apt.
Dr John was excellent. I will be requesting him in the future for my children's appointments. he was knowledgeable and very personable.
My brother and I really like Dr John ... we will make him our primary doctor
Dr. John was fantastic! He answered all of our questions thoroughly, and showed that he cared about his patients.
