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
We are extremely grateful for the excellent care our children always receive from this practice!
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. Dr. Yost gave her a very thorough physical and was very concerned.

Dr. Yost is such a kind, caring person. She expresses genuine concern for our daughter and recently called to personally follow up on her condition.
Dr. Yost is wonderful. She
We love Dr. Yoest!
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.
Dr. Yost is a very knowledgeable doctor, and she makes my daughter feel very comfortable.
my 4 year old had a fit when told she had to get a flu shot. all the staff assisted to help me get her to the table and perform the injections! Dr Yost is always so kind and helpful!
Dr. Yost remains outstanding
Dr. Yost and the staff at Children's Community Pediatrics are the absolute best! The care, advice, and knowledge we receive is always provided in a professional caring environment. Every visit we are welcomed and treated like family. Everyone (from the women at the front desk, the nurses, and especially Dr. Yost) treat my children with such respect...speaking to them, asking them questions, and remembering personal information from previous visits. This each of them feel very special, and they are no longer afraid of doctor appointments! Thank you Dr. Yost, you are simply the best! â¤ï¸
Dr. Yost is wonderful doctor with excellent skills and shows compassion and genuine concern for her patients.
we just love Dr.Yost she is the best doctor,
We love Dr. Yost!
A few days prior to our visit, office nurse Morgan called ENT office to try to get us a quicker appt than I could get. She was unsuccessful so on 12/16/15 after seeing us again Dr Yost personally called the ENT again. She personally called me later that day to say they had a cancellation and could see us the next day. We were really grateful for her help.
We love the Dcotor's in this practice, especially Dr. Frac, Dr. Yost, Dr. O'Reilly & Dr. G!! This is why I recommend this office to all my friends and family. They are the best!!
Everyone was awesome, as usual!
All the staff at the office are excellent at providing care for my children I have been going to this office for 15 years and will not go anywhere else.
Dr Yost is fantastic.
Dr. Yost is wonderful. My children love and trust her. I recently took my son to MedExpress for after-hours care (Children's ExpressCare wasn't open), and the doctor there was very friendly and warm, but I realized how much of a rapport Dr. Yost has built up with all of them because in spite of the doctor's efforts, my son resisted him. But all of the kids happily go to see Dr. Yost. I'm really glad that she has this relationship with them for when they are older and might have private questions of their own to ask her. We are truly blessed to have such a trustworthy, caring, and skilled doctor.
I love Dr. Yost! She's a wonderful Dr. for my kids!
Everybody treated us with respect & courtesy. Dr.'s very helpful with their medical suggestions to make things better for my baby. Everybody was nice & helpful. Positive experience.
dr. Yost took the time to listen to every question my daughter had and was very respectful and compassionate in listening to her concerns.
Dr. Yost is an exceptional physician who has taken the time to get to know all three of my children over the years. She goes above and beyond for my family every time we visit. There was a concern with my son on this visit and she responded immediately with the name and number of a specialist. You are lucky to have such a wonderful doctor in your practice.
We were out of state recently and needed Dr. Yost's Help. Her and the nurse Morgan on duty the day we needed her were extremely helpful. Called back with the answers we needed, and then called back again to see how Angelin was doing. We were in need of their help and they gave to us when needed it most.
Dr. Yost does a great job
I love Dr. Yost. I fully trust her. She takes the time to listen and explains things in a way that I can understand. My child loves seeing her too. She talks to him in a way that makes him feel comfortable. I would highly recommend her!
DrDr. Yost is the best. . .
Dr. Yost is wonderful with children (and parents!). She always listens carefully and explains things in an encouraging, sensitive, and thorough way.
My daughter is a chatterbox and wanted to tell Dr. Yost many, many bits of news from her life and also ask many, many questions. Dr. Yost listened to her and explained things to her in terms that she could understand, while also skillfully keeping the exam going and addressing all of the developmental information that she needed to share. She is truly wonderful in modeling how to engage with children in a way that respects them and also helps them see that adults should be respected. Our whole family loves her!
I have full confidence in Dr Yost. She always makes sure we really understand everything before moving on. She asks if we have any other questions before leaving.
I have known Christine since she was a resident at Childrens. she's has been my kid's pediatrician since they were born. We love her.
Dr. Yost is wonderful. She is gentle and fun with my children, and patient and thorough in her explanations. Her willingness to explain things fully is important because it helps my husband and me make better decisions at home later, whether for the same child or for another. We are immensely grateful for the care she has provided our kids and her genuine concern for their wellbeing.
The appointment was very quick but thorough. She even made sure to take a second listen to my daughters lungs to make sure there wasn't something more serious going on. She acknowledged that yes my daughter does look and sound sick but that she would not recommend medication yet. I was given instructions to return in the next 2 days if she didn't start to improve or got worse. My daughter is doing much better now so I am very glad we weren't given medicine we didn't need! The appointment was great as always!
Consistant excellant care.
Dr Yost is wonderful!! my daughter is terrified of shots, Dr Yost showed her breathing exercises and helped calm her so dhe didn't have to be held down for a shot like Doctors have done in the past.
Dr. Yost has been very good to my children over the past 4 years. She has been excellent at communicating her concerns and listening to mine. A truly wonderful doctor and very nice person!
Dr.Yost is very warm and approachable. She is also very knowledgeable and articulate.
Dr. Yost is very kind and knowledgeable. I trust her judgment and appreciate her caring nature.
Dr. Yost is wonderful. I was recently on a class trip with my daughter's school and several of the mothers were talking about how wise, reassuring, and kind she is--every single person had some very positive story to tell.
