The provider is wonderful and has been my daughter's provider since she was 1 month old and needed a VP shunt. She is very personable, caring and compassionate.
Dr. Tyler-Kabara is the best. We are forever grateful to her for everything she has done for our daughter.
wait time was horrible. our appointment was at 9:45 and we weren't seen until 11:30am
Dr. Tyler-Kabara and the entire Children's staff are excellent, very knowlegable, helpful, and friendly.
Dr. Kabarra has a way of making you feel very comfortable and very at ease with what you might have going on. I would recommend her to absolutely anyone!
Dr. Tyler-Kabara is nothing short of amazing. I would recommend her in a heartbeat.
she's awesome couldn't ask for any better
Did not take enough time with my Child or seem to care about my concerns. Yes they didn't have records from my sons other doctor but I was told on the phone that they would do their own testing on him and stuff but never did. I drove 3 hours for a 15 minute appointment where she just talked and didn't look at my son and my concerns. Would not recommend this Hospital. I am very Disappointed
Everything was good except the wait time, it was an hour past our appointment time.
the woman at the check in desk and the staff when checking out were incredibly friendly! the physician was fast and answered all questions! we were very pleased
Dr. Kabara and her staff are wonderful people. She has shown such concern and compassion for our granddaughter. She always explains everything thoroughly to give us a piece of mind. as our granddaughter was a victim of child abuse.
they were great...
The doctor seems very knowledgeable but just a little abrupt--I kind of expect doctors working at Children's to be a little more pleasant but as long as they give good care that is all that matters.
Dr. Tyler-Kabari is an excellent doctor! She has always taken the time with my daughter to explain things. We are so happy that we started coming to UPMC years ago and will not change due to providers like her! We truly love her and she did wonders for our daughter.
We LOVE Dr. Tyler-Kabara, and 100% trust her with our most precious treasure - our children!!
We had a great experience dealing with Neurology at Children's. Dr. Tyler-Kabara was fantastic and the entire staff were amazing. I would highly recommend people to her office.
dr Tyler Kabara is a great doctor but we our appointment time was at 10 am and we didn't leave until 12:30 pm and the doctor was only in there for 10 minutes or less. it's very hard with a 2 year old to wait that long but I understand surgeons could have emergencies. nothing against her because I think she is great
This doctor is excellent!
The doctor was very kind to our daughter and took the time to answer all of our questions about her health and MRI results. We were pleased with our visit.
Dr. Kabara is wonderful. I am so glad she is my son's doctor. She explained things very well. We are very pleased.
The dr. is very efficient and capable. She always knows our history and recognizes us immediately.
While we had a long wait for our appointment, I take this in account that Dr. Tyler Kabera is an amazing doctor and truly cares about her patients and their health. She spent time with us, answered questions and was very respectful to my daughter and myself. She is careful and does not rush you or discount your concerns unlike others @CHP. I would recommend her to anyone who was in need of a neurosurgeon.
The doctor has fantastic bedside manner and is very thorough.
Dr. Taylor was very knowledgeable of my condition. She gave myself and my mom detailed information on next steps and answered all of our questions and concerns.
waiting is way to long I had an 8:00 (which we arrived for at 7:30 as requested by scheduling) and 8:30 routine visit apt, and we were not finished with the doctor until after 11:00I understand emergencies and so thankful the doctors are there to help, just seems like something can be done that a 6 year old does not spend over 3 1/2 hours in the exam room for 2 simple apt where the doctors agreed to just do more testing. I appreciate my doctors and there attention to our child, I just wish there was a way to move along the appointments- less waiting time.
I love the Dr Tyler-Kabara talks to my son during the check-up. She asks him the questions, talks to him about how he is feleing, explains things to him and asked me my comments/feedback at the end only. It's so refreshing to have a health care provider give the child a voice. Thanks!
Very warm, responsible, and knowledgable. I'm really grateful to her for encouraging a consevative approach to managing my injury, as other doctors leapt straight to the option of surgery, which I very much wanted to avoid if possible. She also encouraged me to resume my regular activities, which I'd been missing. She's the perfect balance of funny, professional, brisk, and kind.
Overall it was a pretty good visit. However, I was freaked out a bit about hearing about my possible shunt revision. This really wasn't great as I suffer from extreme anxiety and as a result became sick in the days that followed. (written by my child)
Dr.TK has been nothing short of exceptional through this difficult time. She is a skilled neurosurgeon with a great bedside manner and I feel so blessed to have her on our team
Dr. T-K is God's magician!
knowledgeable and pleasant as always. I wouldn't take my son to anyone else
Dr Tyler-Kabara is a wonderful lady.she recalled a prior encounter with my son and was also very informative about tree procedure she's about to perform on him.
Dr. Tyler-Kabara is always straight and to the point. She explores all options and keeps her patients top priority and communicates with everyone involved in the child's care. We really appreciate her!
Wait time for the appointment was 50 plus minutes. I have a child with low immune system. Not a safe environment for her to be in. The wait at Children's for anything is ridiculous.
it was a really good appointment... staff was very helpful and kind and so were the pa and dr. tyler kabara
everyone at Children's Hospital made it the best experience for us considering what we were there for.
My husband and I traveled from Indianapolis, IN to come see Dr. Kabara for a second opinion. Her and her PA Jenna were amazing. They really took the time with us and made sure our concerns were heard and addressed. Even though we did not leave with a diagnosis per say we felt much better as we had a game plan in place. I thank them for their time and concern. Definitely glad we made the 6hour trip!
very easy to talk with and always very upbeat
I loved meeting dr. Tyler kabara! the only complaint that I have is that our appointment was at 10:15 and we weren't put into a room until 11:40. With a 14 month old it is hard to keep her occupied in a waiting room for over and hour and a half. other than that I loved the doctor and the nurses!!
very good behavior. answered all questions
Great experience every time
Provider was a little confusing. Stated 5 years ago she would've talked us into surgery for our child, but now she's more reserved. No tests ordered. Was going to let us decide on if we wanted an MRI, then decided not too. Now, we have to wait 6 months. And it wasn't very nice when she stated, "she doesn't expect us to know the words she is saying."
The dr. had given us as a family the utmost attention and was genuinely thrilled how far our daughter had come artistically having to use her non-dominate hand since the stroke.
We feel that we are in good hands with dr. tyler-kabara and our childs NF2
Thank you for saving my son! I'm so happy we may not have to come back; however, admittedly, I'm going to miss you. You all are AWESOME! God bless you!
Very helpful and understanding in what is a worrying time.
My son was so excited to see the doctor and talk to her. She did not rush him or push him or act like what he was saying was unimportant. She told us that he made her day!
Was not seen at appointment time. 30 minutes after appointment time I approached the staff to ask how much longer it would be. I was told she would check and get back to me. 15 minutes after initially asking, I went to the desk and asked again. I was told it would be at least another hour. I left at that point.
The Physician Assistant that we saw yesterday was fantastic. She took the time to explain what she was going to do during her assessment and made my daughter feel at ease.
