great experience. student doctor was also wonderful
She made a referral to a ophthalmologist for what could be a lazy eye in my child - it would've been nice if she had taken a couple extra minutes to explain the issue along with potential solutions/options to alleviate some questions and concerns I have while waiting for an eye doctor appt. I was handed a post-it note with contact info (which is fine), but that was the end of the conversation.
we love Dr O'Halloron. she is always wonderful to speak with and takes time to listen to the children and make them comfortable.
dr ohaleran takes very good care of patience and makes me feel ok
Dr. O'Halloran is the BEST doctor at this practice and we appreciate her! Thanks!
excellent hospitality and helpful attitudes within reception. The doctor was slightly condescending but I expect not to the extent that it would inhibit patients from returning for her expertise.
This was our first time seeing this doctor and she was wonderful!
If I had to pick out something, I would just be careful about nonverbal communication when asking questions. I'm sure every family has different parenting styles and we are figuring it out as we go along and we do take all of the advice of the doctors very seriously but sometimes we can feel like we're being judged or challenged. I'm sure every parent, parent's differently and for us, as a cultural family, that only adds another layer. Just something to think about is just watching nonverbal communication and having a stance of inquisitiveness versus challenging parents. We've had very good experiences overall and trust Dr. O'Hallaron even more than other ones we've seen. She's extremely competent and we trust her diagnoses and her tender care with our daughter. She's always our preference when we try to schedule appointments. Thank you for always taking great care of our daughter!
she is always wonderful and thorough
it was great
This was the second visit for my daughter sick with pneumonia due to the 1st prescription not working. the doctor really took her time with her and ordered another x-ray. since it was a Saturday and by then was after hours she called me from home to prescribe new medication. she then called me a little later thinking about my daughter and said she also sent a z-pack to the pharmancy as well to help her better. I really appreciated that on a weekend she took her time and cared enough to call twice to help my daughter.
I liked how Dr O'Halloran gave choices where she could (do you want to sit on the table or Mommy's lap) and wasn't rushed during the visit.
really like Dr. O'Halloran ... very friendly, talks to my kids on their level. she also shows genuine interest in school and other activities.
Dr. O'Halloran is a phenomenal pediatrician! She always takes time to listen to any concerns, talks about her opinion on possible treatments and gives you the pros and cons of them. She really partners with you and your child so you feel heard and understood.
The staff at this office is always so helpful and pleasant! Thanks to all!
Had a great experience with Dr. O'Halloran. she was thorough, kind, and professional. She picked up on my son's ear infection when it could have been easily written off as a cold. Thank you!
It was our first experience with Dr. O'Halloran. I was VERY impressed. I loved how she turned the computer screen and showed me the growth chart. I love that she caught Keegan's somewhat drastic increase. I love that she encouraged my boys to exercise and eat fruits, veggies, and dairy. My boys came home and exercised for over and hour and did so the next day, too. I want to make a chart where they can check-off how many servings of fruits and veggies they have had.
Always have a good experience with this provider!
she's amazing, my son feels very comfortable with her
Love the Doctors and office staff.
We love Dr. O'Halloran. All 3 of our kids request her. We have recommend her to everyone.
The Doctor was very kind, very thorough and treated me and my child with respect.
Everything went very well with today's visit. I had all three of my kids in the office and the kids were rather rambunctious but Dr. O'Halloran was very calm with them and helped me to calm down.
DR Ohalloran has always been involved with my Childs health.
We had a great visit with the doctor.
Doctor was great. makes my kids feel comfortable. have been coming here for 13yrs.
Very happy with my child's care provider.
Dr. O'Hallaron is outstanding. She asks questions and reviews any concerns I have each time I see her. She never rushes my appointment but always takes her time and makes me feel comfortable and that she truly cares about me.
We love Dr Helen. She is very kind, knowledgeable and patient. She takes her time and she truly treats my girls as her patient by involving and communicating with them throughout the appointment
great. really liked the dr
the doctor didn't seem to have any concerns involving my child, which made me feel good. she did say we could start solids any time we wanted, but she didn't get much direction after that. when I left I realized I should have asked more questions.
Dr. O Halleron is amazing. She is one of the few I trust with my children!
She connected well with my daughter and made my little girl feel very comfortable.
Dr. O'Hallaron is always attentive and knowledgeable about my children's health and care. She never hesitates to answer any questions and spend as much time as we need discussing any concerns. I highly recommend her as a healthcare provider!
I love all the Pediatricians at this location, and the ladies on the office are always helpful. I wouldn't trust my kid to anyone rlse.
Pleased with visit.
O'Halloran is the best I go to her every time because she makes me feel comfortable and really asks me msmy questions and spends quite ap long time with me I think she's fabulous
Both the doctor and nurse were kind, caring, and patient. We were extremely happy with their interactions and level of care.
Dr. O'Hallaron is a wonderful doctor. She is always calm, direct, and very caring.
She was knowledgeable and always very thorough. Makes my child feel good about herself while still trying to make sure she eats healthy & has a healthier lifestyle.
really like dr ohalloran
dr o halleron is the first doctor in three days of appointments to diagnose why my son was so sick.
when I visited for my apptioment the care provider was very nice helpful and she listed to what I had to st
very good visit.
I'm very grateful for Dr. O'Hallorans through check up. She was the first medical professional to discover our child had a heart murmur. It was a scary situation that she compassionately and competently walked us through. After our follow up with a pediatric cardiologist, our son was diagnostic with PDA.
our visit was a very good experience. we left the office feeling as though we had our questions answered.
she was wonderful!
I have full faith and trust that Dr Ohallaron has a genuine care for my family. I'm very satisfied confident that my family is getting the best care possible from her and all the staff members. Thank you for a job well done
we love Dr OHALLERIN
very thoughtful and interested; knew a lot about me
Dr. O'Hallaron is a great doctor. She answered all of my questions and concerns. she took her time and the part I love most about her is she engages my two year old. she truly treats my daughter as her patient by asking her questions and making her comfortable. She has done that with both my 2 yr old and 2 month old and that is why I request to see her for their visits. I highly recommend her and I am so grateful we found her for our girls
I felt as though my concerns were not listened to and the clinician spent the time focused on what she felt was "right" behaviorally, but didn't listen to my concerns it needs and how that wasn't the best solution for us. left the office feeling shamed, belittled, and without a plan to support my child. being a second time mother and someone that works within this field to advocate for mom's and families, I felt she did a very poor job of supporting our family and was citing theories that are known to not be research based for all children. If she does not know the best theories or this was not her expertise, I think it was very unprofessional for her to push her ideas as truth for all.
Dr. O'Hallaron is always friendly, kind and thorough.
Always a good experience with Dr. O'Hallaron (Dr. Rodriguez and everyone there, actually).
Dr. O'Halloran listened to my daughter and took her concerns seriously and was helpful in referring her to a specialist.
We actually had a scheduled appointment for our other child that day and we also wanted to follow-up for our elder daughter (from a previous week's walk-in). So we requested the nurses to see if the doctor can accommodate both our children in the same visit. They were very helpful and were able to get them both in during the same visit. Appreciate their positive attitude and willingness to help us out. Thanks.
Dr. O'Halloran is the very best; my daughter was born with a rare condition and Dr. O"Halloran was the only doctor who treated us accordingly and assisted us throughout her childhood when she was sick. I would give her the highest recommendation.
Dr. O'Halloren was excellent with both of my girls and made them feel confident and at ease.
I would absolutely recommend Dr Ohallerhan. she is the doctor for both of my kids and we don't see anyone else in the practice. she knows them inside and out,and takes very good care of them
Wonderful first time experience at this location
We love Dr. O'Hallaron. She is amazing!
Love Dr. O'Hallaron. One of the most professional, knowledgeable doctors I have ever seen. I can count on her ALWAYS to be very matter-of-fact and knowledgeable.
I liked the speediness for my care.
Dr. Halloran is outstanding. She spends enough time with me to review my medical history and even ask me questions about college etc. She is a great doctor
she was amazing
Dr. Helen has extreme knowledge and compassion. worth driving an hour and a half to see!!
I've been very happy with this office, especially Dr. O'Halloran.
Dr. O Halloran was excellent. Discussed current situations that were relevant to my son's age of 15, like the dangers of alcohol and drugs, in addition to the routine check up. Her mannerisms were very pleasant and her tone of communication was in a way that was helpful. Very pleased.
always been very good in the past not this time!!
Dr. O'hallaron is an excellent pediatrician. She is very caring and patient. We are very glad to have picked her as our kids' doctor.
we had the last appointment of the day and therefore waited a long time to see the doctor. by the end of the day it seems as though they are always behind schedule. not just here, but all doctors offices in general...
I really liked Dr. O'Hallaron. She took time with me and explained things and was able to speak with me in a non judgmental way.
the doctor, Dr. Heleran, doesnt have any bedside manner and talked down to my wife and I. we still enjoy this clinic but will refuse to see this Doctor in the future
The doctor was great, I have always had good experiences with her.
dr O'H was awesome, I don't remember ever taking my son to see her in the past. I wish I had, she was so caring, smart, respectful and helped us to get in to see the eye dr immediately. she's an asset to an already great practice.
Dr. O'Halloran is outstanding. She goes above and beyond and explains everything in detail. She also is concerned about questions I have as well. Also the staff is great to deal with.
Bit of a rough demeanor, didn't seem very sensitive or cheerful.
doctor ohallorins "bed side manner" is top notch. she also knew my child's history before entering room
we waited over an hour for our an appt. This is the 2nd time this has happened in the cranberry office, it seems there's only ever one dr. working.
Dr O'Halloran is always great. She listens to my concerns and takea the time to explain everything.
I was disappointed that I called in and spoke to a nurse that recommended an appt with the pediatrician for the Dr to spend just a few mins and only recommend an ophthalmologist when I gave a detailed description of what was going on with my child. There was no attempt to check for a possible scratch and her sensitivity to light was mostly dismissed. I left with the vague dx of astigmatism or tic with no recommendations to help alleviate the pain or discomfort.
We have seen Dr. O'Halloran in the past, and have always been pleased with the care we have received.
