very grateful to Dr Kitsko
we as a family love Dr Kitsko and the office staff at Children's Hospitals Wheeling location. we get the up most best treatment there and I would recommend them to anyone looking to see a children's specialist.
This was our first visit with Dr. Kitsco. We had an exceptional appointment. My husband and I were pleased with his professionalism and manners. He is a wonderful doctor and very knowledgeable. He was able to answer all of our questons and put our minds at ease. I would highly recommend him to my friends and family.
Dr. Kitsko is outstanding. He has a very good relationship with my 7 year old and she likes him. He's honest, respectful and straight to the point.
Dr. Kitsko was very friendly and professional. Listened and answered all questions thoroughly and confidently.
We absolutely love Dr. Kitsko, he is so great with our son. Especially when he needed tubes at 10 months old. Dr. Kitsko was wonderful calming down, reassuring and explaining everything to us, crazy first time parents!!
staff was very pleasant. I don't have anything negative to say.
Very nice person. he could have elaborated more on what to look for after my sons procedure.
Visit was good. My daughter had an ear infection regarding a tube put in her ear . Dr Kitsco is always very kind and gentle and concerned with my daughter being afraid . I am very pleased with this Dr.
excellent care from the entire team
Dr. Kitsko has been our favorite physician, ever!
The Doctor was very kind, good with my daughter and listened to my concerns. He did seem hurried that is my only criticism. Also our appointment was at 8:45, he saw us at 10am. Having to wait that long with an 11 month old is not okay, especially not after waiting 2 months to get an appointment
appt was for 2pm, did not see Dr until 3:45pm
I love Dr Kitsko and his staff. My daughter has been to a few different providers for her issue when we met Dr Kitsko I have never been more satisfied for the care that is provided to my daughter.
Staff was very friendly and knowledgeable.
We loved everything about our visit. Dr. Kitska made us feel calm and confident with our decisions and was excellent with answering our questions. The only reason they didn't have our records and other information is because our child is a newborn and we were first time patients at that office. Excellent all around.
Dr was very casual compared to the other doctors we had seen and didn't seem to take her potential condition as seriously
No bad experience, Dr. was efficient, pleasant, and answered any questions/concerns we had.
The wait staff was very friendly and efficient. We arrived early for paperwork and from the beginning to the end, everything was extremely efficient. We were finished with the entire process, start to finish, before our appointment was set to start- impressive!!
Dr. Kitsko was very willing to listen to any concerns we had regarding treatment or even surgery. Made us feel very at ease and would do anything to make us feel the most comfortable.
We love coming to Dr. Kitsko. They are very respectful of my daughter's needs. She has Autism and they take that into consideration for everything. It is a very calm experience every time we come there.
This is the first time I saw this provider and I was very pleased.
love the office and staff
always great experiences with the visit, dr,nurses and staff.
Dr Kitsko was excellent. knowledgeable but spoke in manner everyone can understand.
I am always impressed with Dr. Kitsko. We have been seeing him since my son got ear tubes. He is very professional and extremely good with children.
Overall a great visit. Happy with this physician
Very considerate to make an appt. for the next day.
Dr. Kitsko is great. He is thorough in his exam and takes the time to talk to the parents and explain the findings of the exam. We've been under his care since my son was 4 months old. I highly value his opinion on how to treat my son's condition.
Love Dr. Kitsko, and his staff. They are professional, yet caring and kind.
The Dr. was very nice and explained things appropriately.
Great experience, loved the fish in the waiting room. The nurse that took my son's temperature was so efficient and kind, and included my daughter who was tagging along for the visit, which she loved! The doctors and RN were direct and clear with instructions and options. The staff that checked us out was happy to be there and got a toy from the toybox for my child. Excellent experience.
Dr. Kitsko was wonderful with my son!!
The doctor was very efficient, explained everything to us about my child's health concern & the steps of what we would do next. Great visit & im very glad he will be the one doing my child's surgery.
All of the staff was very personable and professional.
just as we expect from great children hospital doctors and specialists!!
Our family trusts Dr. Kitsko. He always takes the time to answer our questions, and we feel he is patient, understanding, and compassionate. He explains things in a way that we understand, but also so our child understands. He is a wonderful doctor and we recommend him to others. This appointment was short, to the point, and right on time.
we love childens hospital and the staff are all wonderful .
this was our first visit and we totally loved him!!
Dr Kitsko was very attentive, and fit us in even when busy!
WE LOVE DR KITSKO!
Had no issues with the Dr that was completing the follow up with my son after his surgery.
The ENT Dr. was great. He did what he had to do, informed me on the procedure, we scheduled and was on our way. He was short, sweet, and to the point. I thank him for that.
Dr. Kitsko is always patient and takes the time to listen attentively and answer all of my questions and concerns. He is a wonderful doctor.
EXCELLENT DR AND STAFF,HORRIBLE WAIT TIME
The staff, particularly Bonnie the nurse, Jen the PA and Dr Kitsko were all wonderful. They all truly seem to love what they do and care for the kids. I have no complaints what so ever.
Pleased with service.
Always excellent. I would notoo be able to hear without Dr. Kitsko.
Love Dr. Kitsko! Personable, kind and compassionate
wonderful bedside manner, very thorough
I felt the appointment was rushed.
We have been with Dr. Kitsko for 7 years. We trust him and respect what he has to say. He has always answered questions and been able to see us on short notice.
would recommend dr Kitsko to anyone he is wonderful
The doctor was so informative and explained everything so well.
our provider was fantastic. my husband and I missed our first apt and showed up the day we thought it was the individuals were kind and worked very hard to get us seen that day.
We always have full confidence in Dr. Kitsko and how he helps our daughter. He makes us feel at ease with all decisions made (from getting tubes a while back to the care they have required since). He is always friendly and makes us feel relaxed about the care he is providing, and we feel that we couldn't have found a better doctor to care for her ear issues!
dr kitsack was extremely knowledgable and explained detailed reasons on his feelings
This was our first visit with Dr. Kitsko, who was referred to us through our PCP. Our son who is 9 months has been having chronic ear infections. We have been very concerned about his hearing and ear health. Dr. Kitsko was excellent, he listened to our concerns and showed a great deal of respect. Not like we were over reacting first time parents!!
Dr Kitsko is amazing with my son and makes him feel very comfortable!
Dr. Kitsko and his staff were excellent with my child!
I love Dr. Kitsko, this was the only visit I left feeling a little confused. He told us something completely different in the past. Having the info that we received in the last visit would have helped my son. Not sure it it was miscommunication or misunderstanding on my part. We still really like him.
Dr Kitsko and his staff are wonderful! I would highly recommend them to anyone.
always a good experience
We love Dr Kitsko
Took 3 calls and multiple messages to schedule an appointment. Other than that though, excellent service provided.
The staff was on time and the appointment was on time and ran smoothly. We didn't have to wait around at all. The PA and Dr. were very nice and through. Everything was explained appropriately.
I enjoyed working with dr kitsko he was very nice and genuine about taking care of my children
doctor was great! my child hates having her ears touched and his patience and understanding helped make the day so much easier.
Dr. Kitsko has always been professional and caring towards our family and we truly value his options and medical procedures. I'm very glad he comes to the Ohio Valley- even if it's only once a month.
I think very highly of Dr. KITSKO. He provided excellent care and treatment for my other daughter and that is the reason I have chosen him to care for this daughter as well.
We have always had very good experiences with the team at Children's North. Very happy that we are in their care!
Dr. Kitsko is easy to communicate with and listens to questions...answers accordingly. He's very friendly and great with the kids.
Dr. Kitsko called and personally made this appointment with me because the CHP North did not return my calls (several voicemails). Apparently, there is a number which accepts messages but no one checks. He was very helpful in this situation.
Dr Kitsko was on time and thoroughly listened to my concerns and addressed my daughters pain.
We love the DR. I wish he was a Pediatrician!
Dr Kitsko is great with our son. He spends, what we consider to be, the perfect amount of time with us and looking over our son. When you're trying to contain a 1 1/2 year old timing is crucial. He knew our son's history and appeared to review the file before coming in to meet with us. A relief to know that he knew what he was walking into before he arrived. Answered all our questions, is always pleasant and patient yet complete and concise.
we were very pleased
i like the dr.
We have been very pleased with Dr. Kitsko! we would highly recommend him to anyone.
Dr. Kitsko actually listened to me!! I feel very good about him doing my daughter's ear tube surgery.
Dr. Kitsko is an excellent doctor. I have nothing but good things to say about him. He has always provide excellent care for my son and treated us with respect. Again, excellent doctor. I always recommend him.
Dr. Kitsko has treated all 3 of my children over many years. He is great with the kids and listens to my concerns as a parent. I have the the utmost confidence in his clinical skills. I have recommended him to other many times in the past and will continue to do so moving forward.
We were very lucky to find Dr Kitsco. We have had such a run around with my child's hearing and upmc until we found him. finally someone is helping us. I love him!
Excellent care. Dr talked to my child also despite her profound developmental delays and her inability to respond verbally, which is not something that all physicians do. He appeared to understand how to provide excellent care for a child with special needs.
very child friendly!! was a delightful experience for my son.
Dr. Kitsko has been wonderful in caring for our daughter. He explained everything - from our daughter's ear tube procedure to her issues afterward - with great clarity. We have been very confident about the procedure and after-care because of him. He is always patient and caring with our baby, and the staff is always wonderful. The only thing that I would change was for her follow-up appointment, after her surgery, to be sooner than 6 weeks.
Dr. Kitsko is wonderful. My family has always had a good experience with him and his office associates. My child has had two surgeries with him, and in all of our appointments, he is always prompt, courteous, and reassuring. He explains everything in terms we understand and answers all of our questions. He has a great rapport with our preschooler. We always recommend him to any friends or colleagues who are looking for a pediatric ENT.
this was our first time to see ENT and I was highly impressed I liked how the staff, dr and parents got to work as a team to decide which way to proceed. this Dr was very knowledgable and understanding to our concerns.
I feel very confident that my son will be feeling much better soon due to Dr. Kitsko's experience and willingness to explore any and all aspects medically for his well being.
He is an amazing Doctor
Perfect thank u all
Very friendly and professional
Always very easy dr and staff to talk to and you know they care about your child
He's amazing. Knowledgable and experienced. Excellent surgeon-allowed my daughter to regain full hearing after surgical Intervention!
Dr. Kitsko and his staff are wonderful and did a thorough assessment of my son's hearing levels, offering options that we could explore if my sons feels it's necessary to do so.
care provided by the provider and assistants was excellent
We were new patients on this visit and I was very pleased with our experience.
