Dr. Shaver and his staff are top notch. I wouldn't take my kids anywhere else!
I appreciate Dr. Shavers calm demeanor and patience. he answered all my questions and concerns and related to my child also.
Dr. Shaver was very engaging and took a lot of time with us despite my child having good health
I've had CCP and Dr. Shaver since the day my daughter was born and she's now 10. I have nothing but 100% confidence in her doctor and the nurses at this practice and always feel comfortable with everything they explain to me. They're so great with my daughter and have always showed care and concern for the both of us. I honestly LOVE this practice.
As is routine in modern medical practice, everyone seemed a bit rushed and not inclined to spend more time than absolutely necessary to conduct our son's exam according to whatever prescribed criteria you follow, but as always, they seemed willing to do whatever necessary above this, if asked to address a specific issue. Could perhaps do a better job describing objective findings, i.e results of physical exam as it is being performed. We are left to assume that a finding is "normal" if the provider does not elaborate during his exam. But there is a wide range of "normal" and the details could be important in the future.
We love Dr. Shaver! He's the best, and we recommend him to all our friends. We feel so lucky to live near Gil Pittsburgh offices!

Dr. Shaver was excellent. He is knowledgeable and attentive and addressed all of our concerns.
Never had a bad experience at CCP GIL
We adore Dr. Shaver! He listens and answers all of our questions. He speaks directly to my child, which we appreciate.
Dr. Shaver was excellent when we came in during the walk-in sick hours. Dr. Williams, our regular provider, is always excellent and provides calm and reassuring care to our infant daughter.
Dr Shaver is a great doctor, as are all the doctors I have seen at this office. He is kind, attentive, and does a great job of helping little ones get comfortable with him.
Dr. Shaver seems to avoid answering questions and seems to get annoyed when questions are asked. He has given me conflicting information between 2 visits.
He is very friendly and thorough!
I feel very comfortable with Dr. Shaver. He always gives us his full attention. My son really likes him too. He looks forward to seeing him for his yearly well visit. My son was born pre mature and we have been going to GIL since 2007. They have given him such good care and I completely trust them.
CCP is an incredible office. The entire staff is always kind and concerned. They are extremely responsive and knowledgeable.
Our family has been very pleased with gil pediatrics. We think Dr. Shaver is great and our children feel very comfortable with him too.
All 4 of my children LOVE Dr. Shaver! He is the best. We have a CCP office 5 minutes from our house, but we travel over an hour just to see Dr. Shaver. The care and attention he provides to each child is impressive.
Dr. Shaver is such a kind, compassionate, and knowledgeable pediatrician. We were his last appointment of the day yet he acted like he had all the time in the world to spend giving my child a check up. Our kids actually look forward to their check ups, just to see him. We are so lucky to have him as our guide through the years in raising our kids.
excellent practice and provider
not only cares for my child being seen but always makes a point to ask about my older son. very thoughtful.
CCP Gil is wonderful. Especially Doctor Shaver. The whole staff is great and that is the reason I continue to go to this office, even though I live over 30 miles away.
First visit to this practice and loved Dr. Shaver. Made my son feel very comfortable. Easy to talk to. Staff was friendly.
Dr. Shaver is awesome! if I didn't already have a pediatrician, I would want him! we seemed to share similar philosophies which was a breath of fresh air. He is very friendly, informative, and caring.

Dr. Shaver spent some time examining my daughter and decided to consult with Dr. Levine for a second opinion. I really respect him for that.
Dr Shaver was very through in his examination and asked us questions and gave us information- I felt very confident with his diagnosis
