Dr. Yost was very patient with me and my children and answered all my questions. I never felt rushed and truly felt like she listened to my concerns with a sense of attentiveness. I would definitely - and I have - recommend this practice to anyone. Everyone, physicians, front office staff, nurses, are all exceptional. We are blessed to have found them.
We love Dr. Yost. She not only considers our daughter's medical history, she also understands our response to our daughter being sick and trusts our judgement. She's always very empathetic towards both our daughter and us (the parents).
Dr. Yost is an excellent clinician who is knowledgeable and compassionate. My children have been patients of her's for years and we feel very lucky to have her as their physician!
We just love Dr.Yost
Dr. Yost is a caring and compassionate provider. She does a great job.
A great experience and friendly loving staff every time we come in!
Dr. Yost is always a wonderful doctor for my children. She takes the time to answer questions, speak with my kids, and explain things clearly without ever being condescending. I always recommend her.
our care provider did not spend enough time listening to my childs chest. she immediately sent us to the childrens hospital. We waited 3 hours at the hospital to be seen by a doctor only to be told it was a routine virus and nothing could be done. the er doctor did not understand why the pcp thought it was pneumonia.
Dr.Yost was so kind and was aware of what's been going on with my son before she came in!!! it's nice for them to look at chart before entering the room! she goes out of her way to make sure my son is doing ok and she truly cares about her patients! Monica her nurse has been amazing as well! she helps with communication amongst the dr and other drs we have! she is appreciated soooo much! The front office are always so friendly too! The nurses are all amazing and take such great care of the kids!
Dr. Yost is excellent with children and very knowledgeable
Dr. Yost was great as always!
Dr Yost was extremely patient with my daughter who was not acting her typical happy self. She was kind, gentle and quick to find an answer so that we can be on our way.
We love Dr. Yost! She always listens and takes her time!
Dr. Yost is the most kind physician. She takes the time to listen to not only us as parents, but our child as well. We are beyond grateful to have her as our family's pediatrician.
Dr. Yost was very nice and concerned about my child.
The staff and Dr. Yost were very compassionate and caring.
Dr. Yost is so wonderful. My children love and trust her, and I can see the value in the quality of their relationship as my oldest daughter enters puberty. Dr. Yost has such a great way of explaining the functions and changes of the body for all ages--she is positive and encouraging about everything they are experiencing, from bug bites to wheezing to stomach aches and illnesses. She always makes time to listen to the little (sometimes non-health-related) concerns of my younger children as well as the reasons that we are there, and it is clear to them that she is interested in taking good care of them.
Dr. Yost is always very thoughtful and the perfect mix of cautious and practical.
We drive further to this practice due to the excellent care of Dr. Yost and her colleagues.
Dr. Yost is the best doctor we have ever seen.
We have been seeing Dr. Yost for the last 15-16 years. She has always been very attentive and available for all of our 3 daughters. I recommend her all of the time!
My husband and i can never thank Dr.Yost enough for being so proactive when we took our 4 day old baby girl in for her family eat appoomtment. Her temperature was reading a bit low and she immediately sent us to Children's and was not wasting any time. Thank God she was on her toes that day because she may have saved our little girls life as it's looking like she has meningitis and a few days more without being treated could have had a very different outcome. Thankfully sending us here to children's has caught it early and the drs have started the appropriate course of action! We cannot thank you enough Dr. Yost!!! Thank you. Thank you THANK YOU!
Dr. Yost is an amazing physician! She knows my children and always greats them with their nicknames. She takes her time and has an extreme amount of patience, as they ask a ton of questions. We couldn't ask for a better doctor or group to take care of our children.
Again, Dr. Yost and her team are very kind and patient. We are very luck to have CCP and Dr. Yost to take care of our children.
Very professional, thorough with assessment and friendly.
love the office staff,nurse and all doctors
Dr. Yost was very friendly, knowledgeable and thorough with our visit.
Dr. Yost is excellent!
Love Dr Yost and my girls are very comfortable around her.
Dr.Yost wasn't willing to listen to me and treat my child. I listened to my gut, which following the appointment I took my child straight to the children's emergency room to be treated and receive help.
we absolute love Childrens Community Pediatrics!
Dr. Yost is a very thourough, excellent provider.
Dr. Yost takes the time to listen. I am thankful for the way in which she speaks with my children. She is reassuring, honest, and calming.
Dr Yost gets added to my list of phenomenal doctors we have dealt with at this practice! we have been seen by Dr Frac ,Dr Silverstein, Dr Reilly and now Dr Yost.very impressed with all of them and I highly recommend this practice to my friends.
very happy with the experience!
we love Dr. Yost!!
As a new stressed out mom, Dr. Yost and the office made this visit so simple. Dr. Yost has many of my questions answered before I even asked them which shows how on top of it she really is. She is so kind and knowledgeable - it is obvious we are in great care. This office came HIGHLY recommended to us by many Pgh moms.
As always a positive experience with the entire staff at Children's Community Pediatrics at Waterdam.
Dr.Yost is a great doctor and all the doctors in the ccp practice are great doctors. I've been with them for almost 18 years and two kids, and my kids love them and the staff is just as great.
Dr. Yost listens and she is patient. One of the best pediatricians I've experienced in my son's life. Highly intelligent and open minded.
although not our normal pediatrician, she was kind and caring and patient.
Our experiences with Dr. Yost and the staff of CCP Waterdam are always exceptional.
Dr. Yost is fabulous. She carved out an appointment time for us when there was no space available this week. She called me ahead of time to discuss our son's symptoms (changes in behavior) the day I called. During the appointment, she listened to everything we had to say and provided exceptional feedback.
My daughter feels very comfortable with Dr Yost as her provider
Dr. Yost is wonderful. She remembers my children's medical history, personalities, and everything, and listens respectfully and carefully to them. She takes the time to answer questions thoroughly and is also very kind. I cannot express how grateful I am for the care she has given all of my children through their lives--my husband and I trust her completely. I am also really glad that my children like and trust her as well, especially as my older kids approach adolescence. I recommend her enthusiastically every time someone asks for the name of a pediatrician!
This was our very first visit with the practice. (New patient/wellness visit appointment) Dr. Yost was absolutely wonderful and very attentive to my concerns and to my daughters past medical history. We discussed milestones between now and our next appointment. This is the kind of care a parent should expect from a pediatrician! I'm still kicking myself, that it took me so long to switch. Overall from start to finish, all staff we interacted with were wonderful.
Dr. Yost's medical expertise is equally matched by her warm bedside manner. She was recommended to us by our daughter's neonatologist, Dr. Laneri, and we have not been disappointed.
Dr. Yost is wonderful! My daughter just turned 10, and I can really see the benefits of Dr. Yost's consistent kindness, attentiveness, and helpfulness through the years. My daughter trusts her and likes her a lot and feels completely comfortable with her, and I am especially grateful for this as she heads toward adolescence.
Dr. Yost was very professional and educational to my child's medical needs. Thank you Dr. Yost for your professionalism!
Dr. Yost was kind, understanding, thoughtful, supportive, and very knowledgeable. She was clear and concise with both my son and me.
I love Dr Yost. we had a serious problem and she took the time to listen to both me and my son and triage us immediately and showed extreme concern. when I called in the nurse was extremely diligent about getting us in to be seen ASAP. although we have a ways to go they were so helpful in getting us started I the right direction.
Dr Yost was thorough and efficient. We received a follow up call from the office the following day, which lets me know she took my concerns seriously and has my child's health in high priority
Dr. Yost is the best doctor I have ever interacted with. She is always attentive and compassionate to my child's needs. She always takes time to answer my questions and explains things in a way easy to understand. Nurses also are top notch and very personable. I am extremely pleased with the care my child receives from Dr. Yost and staff. Keep up the good work!!!
We did have a long wait at today's visit. I think something else was going on with another child there, but our wait was probably 30 minutes between when they did a Streep test and when Dr. Yost finally came in to see us. My daughter was in a lot of pain and was uncomfortable so this wait was really hard for her. Dr. Yost always does a good job with her though and always listens.
We love Dr. Yost. She is very caring and so good with the kids. I always recommend her and all the doctors at this location. I can't say enough good things about them and I have never had a bad experience.
The care received at CCCP Waterdam is always top notch. Dr. Yost is a superb physician.
We had a very good experience with Dr Yost. she was kind, spoke directly to my child and was compassionate about our concerns.
We have been pleased with the entire staff for our infant daughter at all of her appointments. We have seen Dr. Yost the last 3 visits and always feel that she answers our questions and is thorough with her examination of our daughter.
Dr Yost is AMAZING and WONDERFUL! She is a very smart doctor. She actually cares about her patients and spends time with them making sure they get the proper care!!! she has personally called with test results in past!!! you can't find many caring doctors like that anymore!! She sees my other son who has a complex medical history and she manages to keep up with his status and test results!! She's special!
My granddaughter loves Dr.Yost and the office is great too.
I had all three kids in for a walk-in appointment. Dr Yost listened carefully as I explained the entire picture of everyone's symptoms and situation. She was very thorough
We love Dr. Yost!! She is a wonderful doctor!! I would highly recommend her!
my child's provider is always helpful with my son's care.
we appreciate that Dr. Yost took the time to address all questions. she has a very calm, caring demeanor, which is very comforting.
She gave me hope for my child's problem. SHE WAS AMAZING!!!
She was personable and showed empathy for my sick child. She also took time to make sure he didn't have a contagious infection so as to not spread it to the rest of the family.
Dr. Yost was very pleasant and thorough. She was determined to figure out what was going on with my son.
Love everyone here
My children love going to the doctor's office because of the wonderful care and attention that they get. We recommend Dr. Yost to all of our friends.

very satisfied with the provider. appeared j knowledgable, patient, and concerned for my child's well being.
Dr. Yost is always professional. We like working with her. She is nice to my children and speaks to them on a level that they can underatand.
Dr. Yost is always so attentive to my concerns about my daughter and I trust her. My daughter walked out of that appointment and said, "I just love Dr. Yost!"
Dr. Yost is extremely kind and gentle. She seems to really care about kids and their well being and I always leave with the sense that my daughter is in great hands.
Dr. Yost is the most caring and informative person. Her voice is very calming and she is extremely confident.
My daughter has struggled with shyness in the past and often is hesitant to speak freely with adults. But at her appointment with Dr. Yost, she was bubbling over with things to tell about school and her perspectives on life. It's so evident to me that Dr. Yost's care, kindness, humor, and attentive listening throughout the last 7 years has led my daughter to have immense trust in her and to feel that she can speak freely about everything on her mind with her. I'm so glad that she has this foundation for when she grows older and may have more complicated questions about her health and wellbeing, and I'm so grateful to Dr. Yost for respecting and engaging her so beautifully and joyfully at each appointment. My daughter also sometimes has little anxieties about her health, and Dr. Yost mentioned to her at the appointment that her body is a miracle, which was such a wonderful thing for her to hear and be reminded of. We often tell her that God has made her body so that it almost always knows how to heal itself (with medicine sometimes), and we are grateful to have this idea confirmed by our doctor for her to hear.
Dr. Yost is truly wonderful. Before I became a parent, I never would have imagined how much I would benefit from the example of my child's doctor--but throughout my daughter's 9 years of life, Dr. Yost has both provided extremely helpful guidance and information and modeled how to interact positively and affirmatively with my child about her body and her health. I recommend Dr. Yost and CC-Peds every time I meet a family new to my child's school and in search of a pediatric practice.
Dr Yost is excellent!!!!
We love Dr. Yost. She is the best pediatrician we could imagine. That's why we trust her with the health of all of our children!
Dr. Yost is an exceptional physician. We drive 30 minutes to see her because we can't imagine a better doctor anywhere. She is attentive and caring. She always takes the time to make sure we have answers to our questions; regardless of how large or small they might be.
Dr. Yost is an excellent physician. We have been extremely pleased with the care my children have received over the years.
We love Dr. Yost. She's so good with my daughter and is patient with her. My daughter definitely feels comfortable with her and is never upset during her doctor visits because Dr. Yost is so calm and patient with her. Dr. Yost also trusts and listens to my opinions and my concerns.
Dr. Yost is always so great to talk with. She's very thoughtful and sensitive.
Dr. Yoest went above and beyond to help me and my child feel comfortable and cared for.
The day before I went I had just lost my stepdad and everyone at the office was so sweet and understanding. they took care of my injury and they made sure I was smiling (even through the pain)
I have nothing but complete confidence with the entire staff. they are knowledgeable, competent, and caring.
CCPC Waterdam is wonderful! Always quick service, very friendly. Dr. Yost has been a phenomenal doctor for all 3 of my children for the past 10 years.
we couldn't be more pleased with Dr. Yost!
Dr. Yost is so wonderfully caring and explains things thoroughly so that we can fully participate in thinking through and understanding our children's care. we have learned so much about their health and wellbeing both from the information she shares and from her manner and engagement with our kids at every age. I am so grateful that we happened into her care and we recommend the practice to all of our friends with new babies!
This was our first time meeting with Dr. Yost. My daughter was very apprehensive and shy regarding our visit due to the nature of her problem and Dr. Yost made both of us feel very comfortable. She was polite and friendly and easy to talk with. We have already decided that we would like to continue seeing Dr. Yost as my daughter's primary care physician from now on. We were very happy to meet her, and as a mother, I feel confident that Dr. Yost will take care of any issues my daughter may have to the best of her ability. I have a sense of peace knowing that my daughter is comfortable with Dr. Yost caring for her.
Always friendly, professional, and pleasant experience. Dr. Yost excels at putting nervous children at ease and speaking to them, not at them or around them.
Dr. Yost took a lot of time (I have the feeling during her lunch break) to discuss my concerns about my son. She was thorough, helpful, knowledgeable, and reassuring. She made it clear that I can contact her whenever I need to and that she will continue to follow my child's case. My son and I both left the office feeling that our concerns had been addressed and were under control.
Dr. Yost always gives us the best care!
Dr. Yost was extremely empathetic and thorough in promptly addressing not only the concerns for our child, but was concerned for my well-being as a new mother as well after having post-partum complications. We hold Dr. Yost in our highest regard.
Dr Yost is wonderful! Her kindness and concern is very genuine and she seems to really care about children. She was getting over a cold and wore a mask while she gave our newborn a check up, which was very appreciated.
