Dr. Kitsko and the Nurse Practitioner have been and are the best of the best in what they do and in how they treat their patients.
Dr Kitsko is the BEST. We travel 2 hours to see him.
provider was excellent. knowledgeable and decisive while allowing me to make informed decisions for my newborn.
doctor was great, very informative
Dr. Kitsko and the medical/office staff were friendly, professional, and knowledgeable. I was very happy with our visit.
I just felt that the Dr. was in a hurry and didn't take the time we needed for our concerns. Felt very rushed.
very good experience as always
Dr. Kitsko is awesome!
the Dr. was amazing with my daughter and making sure she was comfortable!
I absolutely loved Dr Kitsko and my experience at Children's during this visit.
Dr Kitsko always provides excellent care for my daughter. He is extremely knowledgeable and is able to answer my questions without hesitation. my daughter feels very comfortable with him and he has outstanding bedside manner. We are extremely grateful to have him provide her care.
provided great care
Dr. Kitsko pushed hard for surgery while refusing to discuss the risks and benefits of any other treatment options, or even what other options there were and why he thought his recommendation was the best. I raised specific concerns about why it might not be appropriate for my child and he did not address my concerns. Everyone I have spoken to about the experience including his pediatrician has recommended that I get other opinions before pursuing surgery. My life would be a lot easier if I didn't have to research all the things he wouldn't discuss myself, and pursue evaluations independently instead of having help coordinating them. A good doctor is able to educate patients about options and explain risks and benefits, not just to tell patients what to do.
Dr. Kitsko is the BEST! he is not only easy to get talk to, but also gives thorough explanations! We are so pleased our daughter's hearing is normal for the first time in her life. Thank you, Dr. Kitsko!
great office, really nice and helpful staff!
we love Dr Kisko and Shelly
I had to wait a very long time to be seen. My appointment was at 12:45 and I didn't leave until 2:45.
this provider not only took time with my son who had a scheduled appointment but also took the time to see my daughter who did not have an appointment scheduled
Dr. Kitsco was very attentive and very good with my daughter. He listened to me concerns and treated us both with respect.
we love our ENT he is friendly,has great bedside manner,listens to our concerns,and makes my daughter feel at ease and always takes great care of her whether in surgery or just during an office visit.
Dr. Kitsko is fantastic. He is very down to earth, takes time to listen to our questions/concerns, and explains things in easy to understand ways. Very thorough and really makes an effort to show that he cares. He even gave our daughter a sticker!
They Did Great. I Thank Them Foreverythin and giving me the information that I needed to know.
Always knowledgeable, and takes the time to know my child and her situation. we drive 2 hours to see Dr Kitsko and he is worth every bit of it! He is the most reliable and the Dr that I can trust to give the facts, and the treatment for what is happening!
profession, not in a hurry, listens attentively
Dr. Kitsko and staff are wonderful. Scheduling for this practice is a nightmare. The lead time for an appointment is far too long. Availability in the main hospital is next to none. We live less than two miles from CHP main, but have to travel to South to see this provider.
all the staff were helpful and professional.
My son's sleep study was conducted on 5/25/18. We absolutely love Dr. Kitsko and would recommend him to all of our family/friends. We were disappointed that our follow-up appointment could not be scheduled until 8/14/18. Surgery during the summer would have been more conducive to our family schedule. Other than that, we love our provider.
Very good experience; I'd recommend Dr. Kitsko
good experience! Great Dr.
I have always felt Dr Kitsko provides the best ENT care. He takes time to get to know the child and listen to concerns and does not seem to rush into any procedure unless it is medically necessary. He also gives advice and take home information regarding care that is practical and based in research
I loved dr kisko but his assistant had an attitude. I will recommend him to everyone!!!!!!
we love dr. kitsko! he's the only ent we will see.
The only down side, we waited a VERY long time for this appointment. My son needs his tonsils out. And the the schedule to get in was totally full for the rest of summer. Now we cant get him for the surgery until school is out next spring. We did not want him to suffer another year of infections but he cant miss that much school.
we had a great experience with the doctor, nurses, and staff!
Dr, Kitsko is a WONDERFUL Dr. My daughter has serious special needs and he is always helpful with his in and out of the Dr's office.
As always....Courteous, and helpful staff. Dr Kitsko is always kind, and caring with my granddaughter. Great Care!!
I was impressed with how fast the appt went, the dr was awesome very nice.
Dr. Kitsko is excellent. My daughter likes him and she feels comfortable at her appointments. She has ongoing ear problems and it's great to see a consistent provider.
the check out receptionist was not Friendly and very bothered by questions.

Dr. Kitsko is amazing. He is always on time, but he also takes his time. I always leave feeling good about the discussion and decisions that are made. He listens to my concerns and truly cares about Noah.

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
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
Dr. Kitsko has been our favorite physician, ever!
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
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.
always great experiences with the visit, dr,nurses and staff.
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!!
