we love this practice and specifically Dr. Shaver. My 13 yr old son can be anxious about his health and Dr. Shaver listens to him, speaks directly to him and always makes him feel comfortable. he shows he cares and makes a point to ask my son about items from previous visits. We could t ask for a better pediatrician.
We love Dr.Shaver. Very knowledgeable, our kids love him, listens to our concerns/questions. Thank you for your excellent care!
We think Dr. Shaver is great! He always talks to our boys and shows an interest in what is going on with them. He always makes our boys feel comfortable during appointments.
Love ALL of the staff we have never had a bad experience
wonderful as always.
I love this practice our family doctor is EXCELLENT he is very sincere about my children's health and always has a plan intact for every doctor visit I've have been bringing my children to this practice for almost 6 years now and we have no plans on leaving anytime soon this is home
We just love Dr. Shaver, he's the absolute best pediatrician ever!!
Dr. Shaver has been my sons. PCP for the last 10 years and he has been an awesome and very helpful doctor.
dr. shaver is by far one of the best, kindest, and smartest pediatricians I have ever interacted with.
we always choose Dr. shaver whenever he is available because he is such a professional physician and we have always had good experiences with him
Dr Shaver and the entire Murrysville staff is outstanding, friendly, and patient. I tend to be a crazy, always worrying, new mom and they take their time to explain everything. Dr Shaver is a wonderful pediatrician and I highly recommend him to friends, family, and peers.
always very friendly and listens to myself and my child.
About 2 years ago we moved to Mount Lebanon, we switched all of my care providers to people located closer to our new location. Dr Shaver and the staff at GIL were irreplaceable and we continue to travel all the way across the city to have our child seen by them.
I liked that Dr. Shaver asked the patient questions as well as her parents, that he took time to make sure she was comfortable before beginning his exam, and that he also asked about her siblings.
very happy with the care
We were very pleased with the care provided by each provider at the practice and pleased with the health care outcome
I love Dr Shaver. He is the best
As parents, we continue to be impressed by Dr. Shaver. The level of engagement he has with our son is beyond both what we would ever expect and what we have ever experienced with any other provider. I appreciate that he makes our son feel comfortable, asks him questions directly rather than just asking myself or my husband, and seems to remember detailed information about him, despite the fact that we are only at the doctor once a year or so.
Dr Shaver was very nice to my son and took time to ask my son what was bothering him. I was glad he was able to help us with the issue we are having.
i have always had great experience at this practice and are glad we found Dr. Shaver.
Dr. Shaver is incredible. He spends a good amount of time with each patient, knows the child's medical history, and makes patient and parent comfortable.
Dr. Shaver is the best pediatrician around! My kids love him and so do my husband and I. He takes his time with each of our 4 kids and makes sure they get the individual attention they deserve. They talk about him all year long and are always excited to see him! I wish everyone could have such a dedicated pediatrician as we do!
Dr. Shaver is great. Would highly recommend him!
Dr. Shaver did an excellent job addressing my husband and my concerns about our newborn's slow weight gain. He listened carefully to our history and worked with us to come up with a clear plan for breast feeding and formula supplementation prior to the next visit.
Dr. Shaver gives excellent meticulous care
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!

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 and his crew are exceptional and we recommend them to everyone we can. Dr. Shaver truly cares about what he does.
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
Dr. Shaver is excellent. I most appreciate how he takes the time to talk to my child and to listen to what my child has to say.
