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.
we love ccp of McMurray!
As always we had a good experience at CCP
We had a good experience at CCP as always.
Dr. Yost has been amazing with our daughter on her last two well visits. We really appreciate the time she takes with us!
Every interaction with this provider and the staff has been excellent. No one is perfect and they have all been a pleasure to work with.
wonderful staff and excellent dr!
office staff is excellent
Dr. Yost always takes the time to listen carefully & make thoughtful recommendations that are always helpful.
Wonderful care, as always from Dr Yost and staff. The best around!
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.
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!!!!
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.
