Kirsten was awesome!
Today was the first time we saw Kirsten Walther. (We usually see Dr. Viswanathan) She was absolutely amazing! She spent a long time in our room with our son. Kirsten brainstormed WITH us and respected our opinions. She took our 10 year old son's thoughts and suggestions seriously and did an awesome job explaining things so that he understood them. She was very patient with our son. Kirsten was a joy to work with and offered some great suggestions for our son's health. We hope to see her again!!!
I thought the appointment went well and doctor explained things in a way you could understand
Excellent care was provided! Our visits to UPMC East are very positive!
she is excellent
Kirsten is friendly, knowledgeable and my daughter feels very comfortable with her. I am a nurse myself and I think she is the best. Wouldn't change a thing
the doctor was wonderful and explained everything we needed to do for my daughter.
This provider was very good.
the doctor made my daughter feel very comfortable, spoke clearly and with sensitivity, talked about both shot term and long term options.
Kiersten was very informed and had read my daughter's chart before entering the room. She has been the most professional and helpful endocrinologist we have seen thus far in this practice.
Very impressed with the care we received on October 11, 2018. Very friendly, thorough and courteous staff in all areas!
I cannot say one negative thing about Kirsten Walther. She is patient, knowledgeable, kind and relates to my child and I in a relaxed manner that makes going to the endo a great experience. We couldn't be more pleased with the care she provides.
this provider is awesome. she's always so good with my daughter and makes her feel very comfortable!!! great bed side manor!!
Emily is always treated with kindness, understanding and encouragement at every visit!!
Her patience with my child is phenomenal. And her recommendations are provided is a way that is nonjudgmental which I appreciate greatly!
Kirsten is frankly one of the most caring and knowledgeable providers that my daughter has ever seen. She is bright, kind and patient and connects very well with my child. She is always willing to discuss concerns and work with my husband and I to ensure that we have all of the tools needed to keep our daughter in great health. I cannot recommend her hightly enough. She is outstanding and that is why we make the 3 hour trip for the check ups.
Kristen did an excellent job
very nice; good experience
promptly taken back and seen. clear explanations.
Kristen is a godsend to our family. Even though I (patient's mother) have had Type 1 for many years, she is able to help us navigate these more difficult pre-teen blood sugar flucuations. Also she is so wonderful with our daughter on a personal level. Our daughter trusts her and feels comfortable sharing her feelings and concerns with Kristen. Kristen is clearly very intelligent, knowledgeable and cares very much for your young patients. She is a wonderful health care provider.
I like Ms. Walter and would see her again
After having had a very bad experience with her prior endocrinlogist at another practice, my daughter was anxious and apprehensive about her appointment yesterday. Dr. Walther was kind, compassionate and really seems to relate to children well. She was informed, professional and put both my daughter, my husband and I at ease. She discussed things in a collaborative way and really made a great impression on my daughter which is important for her to feel comfortable in opening up about her fears and anxieties regarding her Type 1 diabetes.
we love Kirsten Walther. she is so attentive and courteous. always remembers details about my daughter and the conversations we previously have had even if Months have gone by. I definately recommend her. We love seeing her at Children's.
