Dr.Romberger is incredibly sensitive to our child's need for privacy, respect and autonomy, especially as these develop over time. We are grateful to have him as our children's physician.
Love this office and my Dr. as well as the staff ... never had a problem and they always treated me and my family good.
Dr. Romberger is beyond exceptional. He always remembers my husband and myself by name. He speaks to children with kindness, respect, and genuine interest. He allowed my 3 year old to explore tools he planned on using with us because he could tell (without my son even saying so) that he was really curious and wanted to handle the instruments. Dr. Romberger sacrifices his own time to spend extra time with families and patients. He is diligent, knowledgeable, patient, and kind. There simply is no better pediatrician than Dr.Romberger, I express my fullest gratitude and recommendation.
Dr.Romberger is very thoughtful, caring, and explains information slowly and clearly. He was very encouraging and made us feel like we were doing a great job as brand new parents to our infant.
My 16 yo wanted to be alone in the exam room when the dr would see the rash all over his body. The dr did not come out and talk to me at all. I think he should be required to discuss the issue with the parent and not just send the kid out of the office with a piece of paper.
We absolutely love Dr. Rohmburger, he is so extremely sweet an patient with the kids. We always have a laugh about something, he makes me feel very relaxed, he is the best.
The experience was good visit.
Physicians and staff you all are wonderful and thank you for maintaining positive experiences for me and my children.
I was shocked at how much time Dr. Romberger spent with me and my child at her 15-month well baby check up. He spent so much time talking to me about the 6th ear infection she was starting in 6 months, discussed our options, and showed me diagrams of what was happening in her ears. When it was time for her immunizations and antibiotic injection for her ear infection, 2 nurses came in because the antibiotic is a thick serum and it would hurt her so they wanted to make this go as fast as possible for my daughter. It was such a thorough visit. I'm glad we chose CCP. The doctors and nurses are amazing.
love this provider!!
always good visit all three of my children have been going there since birth wouldn't have it any other way
We say this every time. It never changes. Dr. Romberger is the best provider we've ever known. For anyone in our family. Ever. He's everything you want in a provider: warm, caring, reassuring, personable, knowledgeable, experienced, open, honest, and responsive. He's a wonderful doctor, and it seems pretty obvious that he is a wonderful human being as well. We've been privileged to know him for the past 21 years.
very concerned and compassionate, listened well, explained clearly. we'd never met him but I was very happy with the care and my daughter liked him
We LOVE Dr. Romberger! He takes time to explain, answer questions, shows concern for and to my daughter and is very respectful, courteous, knowledgeable and compassionate. Everything you could ask for in a physician. I have recommended him to others.
Dr. Romberger was excellent.
Dr. Romberger listened so well to our concerns. He relates well to me and my son. It's a pleasure to see him.
Wonderful experience - Dr. Raumberger is a knowledgeable and kind doctor.
Dr. Romberger was and always has been extremely conscientious and easy to interact with.
We love this practice and Dr. Romberger is the best. I'll be sad when he decides to retire.
Dr. Romberger was extremely attentive and caring. Like always, he listened to my concerns, devoted full attention to my questions, was helpful and professional. He cares about the well being of my daughter and our entire family. He truly is a wonderful doctor.
best service! love him
He examined very carefully and explained me extensively to make sure I understood.
Dr. Ronberger is the best pediatrician we have ever experienced. That is why we waited 3 months to see him for our well check. I would recommend him to everyone. He is the whole package: professional, competent, and extremely caring.
Dr. Romberger and his nurses are awesome! so professional, kind and caring. I really feel that they are on our team. Thank you!
Dr. R took the time to call me as soon as our test results were in and spent as much time on the phone as I needed talking about the plan for my child's care. He also followed up at the end of his day to make sure everything was OK. He was very kind!
We have been with Dr. Romberger for almost 20 years my oldest is now 20 and is now too old but we will continue to see him as long as we can!!!!!!:)
Dr. Romberger did an excellent job engaging both my child and me throughout our encounter. He explains everything in very easy to understand language and never seemed rushed.
I can't say enough great things about this pediatric practice! ALL staff - receptionists, nurses, doctors - are very friendly, kind, and make my children feel comfortable with seeking medical help (for both check ups and acute issues). They are also VERY comforting and reassuring to parents without operating instructions for their offspring!
Dr. Romberger remains a kind and patient caregiver who interacts splendidly with my baby and my family.
Dr. Romberger is an extremely caring, sensitive, compassionate, well informed and careful provider. We LOVE him!
No bad experiences with Dr. Romberger!
Dr.Romberger is an awesome physician. this whole practice as a group is attentive and amazing.
Dr. Romberger was great.
love his calm demenor, he's clearly been doing this for a long time. I'm a new mother and have constant concerns that I'm not doing a good job- I've never voiced these concerns, but every time I go in he's given me reassurance that I'm doing great, and that means the world to me.
Dr. Rhomberger is a very knowledgeable doctor and the best i have had for my children so far.
my child really likes Dr. Romberger and looks forward to seeing him, identifies him as his doctor at age 3. he is calm and reassuring.
The doctor was so calm and great with the boys (always both are there even if only one is not feeling well.) the one who had the ear issue was on my lap so the doctor checked his ears and breathing while he stayed on my lap. We love the boys' regular doctor but this is one of my favorites if it's a last minute appointment and we cannot chose. :) I really love this doctor's office!
Dr. R. is amazing and always a pleasure to see
I appreciate Dr. Romberger's focus and honesty during appointments.
Dr. Romberger provided exceptional care. I appreciated that he wanted to address our questions and did so throughly. He was a good listener, gave ample time to each issue, and was clearly knowledgable and caring.
I love this practice
We LOVE Dr. Romberger and Bass Wolfson Pediatrics!!!
The doctor showed great interest in my son's problem. He put a lot of effort in trying to understand the cause of my son's disconfort, during our visit and also after. He was so kind to make some research, he talked to a different specialist and followed up our with phone calls in order to update me regarding the results of his research, suggestions and medications. I really appreciated. I'm sure this doctor really cares about his patients, and I really feel my son is in good hands.
Dr. Romberger is a caring individual. I am very pleased with him as my child's pediatrician.
It's always a good experience and every time I ask a question they are always kind and help me get the answers
Excellent doctors, nice office, we are happy with our experience so far.
We love Dr Romberger. He has been our partner in our children's health and well-being for more than 18 years, and we wouldn't go anywhere else.
Dr. Rhomberger is amazing !
Best doctor ever, knowledgeable and so personable. Really a wonderful person at a wonderful practice.
Its always a great experience. We love Dr. Romberger!!!!
I can't say anything better about the dr. and his staff. .. they are the best!
Very impressed with Doctor ......so open and so warm!!!!
Excellent practice. Would highly recommend.
Bass Wolfson is wonderful. We have recently moved back to the Pittsburgh area after being away for five years and having them as our pediatric practice was a top priority.
Dr. Romberger was very friendly, courteous and knowledgeable.
This was a walk in visit. I have seen this same dr for a different child in the past. I have complete confidence in his medical skills but he seems to take it to the next level, offering a tip for the emotional well being as well, never in a way that could be misinterpreted as condescending just humble and kind. H
We have had excellent experiences both with our regular pediatrician as well as other physicians in this practice. I love that the physicians speak directly with my child. They are very respectful and age appropriate with a warmth clearly works well with kids.
Dr. Romberger is a truly special physician. He not only was thoughtful and considerate of my baby's wellbeing, even noting the baby's flailing about and taking the time to secure him with me, but answered all my questions in an informed, unrushed and caring fashion and provided necessary reassurance and positive reinforcement in a way that displayed how the practice of medicine is an art, not a rote science, and as much about the relationship with his patients as the knowledge needed to keep them healthy. His common sense and sense of humor make him a related and likeable person, and his clinical skills make him a trusted caregiver for my little boy.
fantastic pediatrician. reassuring, friendly, good rapport with child, excellent communicating with parents, good judgment
Dr Romberger is always full of information and makes me feel like i'm doing a great job at being a mother.
dr Romberger is an excelent doctor, we are very happy with the visit
Dr. Romberger is a wonderful, caring physician.
Dr. Romberger and the staff ALWAYS do a great job. I have no complaints.
Very smooth clinic experience. We waited less than 5 minutes to be called in for vitals and there was no delay between the nurse completing her evaluation and Dr. Romberger coming in to see us. Dr. Romberger is compassionate and mild-mannered. He has a calming presence and as a result our children are not scared to come to his office for an appointment. They actually enjoy the experience!
Not knowledgable about particular illness which we were there to inquire about and made no attempts to look up details while we were at our visit; has not followed up independently since visit; lab results still not fully reported back over 1 week after drop off; child still experiencing symptoms
Dr. Romberger is the best. He really listened to me and my child.
always thorough and good
We have always had very positive experiences with Dr. Romberger, whose care and kindness for his patients is communicated in every interaction.
I love my sons doctor he's been with us for about four years nows and always seems to pin point whats wrong with my son when hes sick..
Dr. James Romberger is an exceptional physician. He is an extremely competent, knowledgeable, and devoted doctor. Our family is blessed to have such a caring pediatrician.
Dr. Romberger has been our child's physician from birth....
With Dr. Romberger, there are no good, and definitely no bad, experiences. There are only outstanding ones. Earlier in this survey, I rated him the "best possible" provider for a very good reason: I can't imagine any way in which a provider could be better. His kindness, his compassion, his thoughtfulness, his gentle demeanor and reassuring tone are always -- from the time my boys were infants, and now through their teens -- exactly what we want, and need, as parents concerned about our child's health. His willingness, and indeed his ability, to explain his observations, his recommendations, and (quite often) his reassurances is beyond compare. Yesterday was just more of the fabulous same: I came in worried about my son's health and a little freaked out by something that had happened the day before, and I left feeling fully informed and absolutely reassured. The comfort and confidence we have in Dr. Romberger and his care, and the pleasure we take every time we see him, are truly priceless.
Dr Romberger has been my kids MD since their birth & could not have asked for better care for them, he truly cares for their health & well being. I recommend him to everyone I know with kids.
My family and I are very happy with Bass Wolfson and Dr. Romberger.
Dr. Romberger is really great. Our daughter had some health concerns at the beginning, and he handled them very well. More specifically, we felt as though he took adequate precautions without being alarmist, which we really appreciate. Really a great provider overall. We've really appreciated working with him, and we're going to miss seeing him when we move to Wisconsin.
Dr. Romberger is an exceptional pediatritian and a wonderful human being.
We have moved, but we still go to Bass Wolfson Squirrel Hill for one reason...we love Dr. Romberger and explicitly trust in his care of our kids.
I recommend Dr. Romberger to anyone who asks. He is the best practitioner and cares deeply for his patients. We feel lucky to have him caring for our children.
DR. Romberger is an excellent physician. He provides the kind of holistic care that best "fits" our family, making sure we are comfortable with all of the information he shares. Dr. Romberger has been our children's doctor for 17 years.. I would not want anyone else!
The doctors in this practice have all been wonderful with my children. Dr. Romberger is especially good with talking to my children directly. My son felt "really important" when we left the office and seemed proud that the doctor listened to his own words and "didn't just talk to Mom and Dad."
