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

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.

Dr Yost is quite possibly the best Doctor ever. She is absolutely wonderful with both kids and parents alike.
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.
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.
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 excellent!!!!
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.
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 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)
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.
I have nothing but complete confidence with the entire staff. they are knowledgeable, competent, and caring.
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!
we couldn't be more pleased with Dr. Yost!
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.
they do an excellent job of seeing my quadruplets in one timely visit.
Dr. Yost is wonderful!!! I completely trust her with my child's health!
Dr. Yost is by far the best doctor I have ever seen. We never feel rushed and she listens to us with such care and attention. The nurses have always been so friendly and helpful as well.
we absolutely love Dr. Yost! She is so thorough and kind. Never makes us feel rushed during appointments. Always spends so much time with us. Eoukd highly recommend her.
I am extremely grateful Dr. Yost took the time to listen to what my sons symptoms were and properly diagnose him when others had not. she caught his pneumonia when a resident and er dr missed it.
Dr. Yost interacted so well with my 3-year-old.
This was our first time to this office. We recently switched doctors because my daughter wanted to be treated by a female doctor now that she is getting older. Dr. Yost made this visit very pleasant. She was so kind to my daughter, and she really took the time to talk to her. I am so happy that we have found Dr. Yost. My daughter is very comfortable with her just after one visit.
Dr. Yost was so friendly and encouraging to my daughter. She was caring and made her feel comfortable.
Dr. Yost really took her time to connect and relate to my 13 year old daughter for whom we have mental health concerns. Dr. Yost communicated the importance of managing stress through counseling which really took my daughters fear of seeing a counselor away. I appreciated that very much. Made daughter feel that talking to a counselor was not because there is "something wrong with her" but that a counselor could be an important part of stress management. Thank you.
we had a very good experience I feel we came to the right place.
Dr. Yost is very friendly, professional, and knowledgeable. I have been trusting Dr. Yost to care for my children for 14 years. She always treats my children well, as if they were her own children. I am very grateful to have her caring for my children.
the doctors and nurses are the best in this office!! so caring and nurturing! they have become our friends!!
Dr Yost is the best. She is very friendly and makes the child feel important. She always answers all my questions well.
Dr. Yost is an excellent medical provider and caring mom. She answers every question and does an excellent job.
I have respect for Dr. Yost. Dr. Yost takes time to listen to parent's concerns. To simply put : I wouldn't be taking the time out of my day to fill out this survey if I didn't want Dr. Yost to get the recognition of being a great pediatrician. I'm glad we found her and the rest of the doctors at ccp waterdam.
Very good experience with Dr. Yost she is a great doctor

CCP is a wonderful practice. I have had good experiences with pretty much every staff member. Dr. Yost is a fantastic doctor that have recommended to many people. She listens to my concerns and addresses them is a friendly and professional manner. She takes as much time is as needed with my children during visits and I never feel that she is rushed. She also displays care and concern for my children and their health issues. She explains everything while we are there. She also always ends our visits by telling us if we need anything or have any questions to not hesitate to contact her. She is an exceptional pediatric physician.

Dr. Yost is a really great doctor and person. I'm really glad she has been my PCP since I was little.
My daughter had a medical problem she had to go to the ER. When my husband call to get the results Dr. Yost talked to him and gave us the results. Dr. Yost also wanted to see my daughter in the office. My daughter has a lot going on right now with testing, graduation and college visits they were able to schedule her in.

The staff was absolutely amazing while we were there. It was a scary situation because her breathing was not good and they called an ambulance to take us to Children's. The nurses and Dr. Yost were nothing but wonderful to us - they understood it was a scary situation for both of us. I'm very thankful for each of them.
