We have seen Kristen before. She is always great! I trust her and she is very caring with my children.
Always nice to both my children and are very interactive with my girls
This provider is exceptional. From the front desk to all the staffing. I have recommended them to a coworker with her new child.
The doctor is very knowledgeable and has a good communication skill.
we waited over 1 1/2 hours to see the physician. the nurse was supposed to bring in a popsicle and never did. we really felt forgotten. when someone finally came in the apologized and said we had a lot of babies today.
Kristin was wonderful
We were seen and treated promptly. Kristin was patient with my child's fears and her being somewhat uncooperative. She answered all of my questions and showed interest in my child. In all, we got the excellent care she needed right away.
People at the office, including reception staff, were very attentive and helpful.
I love the staff in this office. they are amazing! the extended hours, weekends and walk ins make this place 1000000x better. I don't think I'll ever change doctors.
she helped me see if I was nursing correctly which was very helpful
We have met with nurse practitioner Kristin several times since my son's birth, and she is always professional, friendly, supportive, and empathetic. Kristin is extremely knowledgable and among the best in her field. Most importantly, it is evident that she cares for her patients and demonstrates genuine concern for them.
We stopped in as a walk-in visit for skin issues. Kristin Barbato is always friendly, respectful and caring. My daughter met with her first privately and then I came in and was included in what was discussed.
I brought 2 of my kids in for a walk-in visits. My son was there for a well visit/sports physical. Kristin Barbato talked to my son respectfully, was able to joke with him and laugh when he cracked jokes and calm his nerves about a possible shot.
she was absolutely wonderful with the delicate topics we were discussing.
I feel so confident with the diagnosis I receive.
Kristy is so amazing and helpful, we love coming to see her as she always spends time answering all of our questions and you can tell she really cares.
excellent provider; always friendly and thorough.
Kristy was awesome, and really helped with any questions or concerns we had.
Wonderful care in a great environment.
Kristen was very helpful and listened to all of our concerns and questions, even over the sound of loud children. She was great at making our child feel comfortable too.
Kristin is a wonderful PA. She takes time to carefully look over my child's history before making any decisions. She answers all of my questions in a patient and effective way. My sons both took right to her during their visits.
I appreciated that the decisions made reflected what was best for my child and the entire family. Care was taken to explain the details of the exam to my child so she would cooperate and not be fearful.
wonderful! always caring and compassionate
she was patient.
Kristen is always wonderful and I'm happy to see that she's the PA working when my kids are sick!
really liked our visit, except please remember that every person and child has a different level of pain tolerance. I didn't care for you minimizing his reaction to having wax dig out of his ear- regardless of whether the ear was infected or not. everyone feels things differently and especially a child who hasn't felt or slept well for days.
We Truly are blessed having Healthquest Peds. be our children's Healthcare providers. The Doctors and Nurses along with office staff are professional and friendly as well.
Kristin is incredibly warm and great with kids. She communicates with both child and parent and welcomes any and all questions. Always happy when she's the provider who walks into the exam room!
It was a busy morning for walk-in patients (which we were), and Kristin apologized for the wait. She was efficient and professional with my son.
CRNP Kristin was fantastic. She is very knowledgeable and is able to communicate and explain effectively. Her concern for her patients is apparent and she is happu to spend as much time as needed with a patient without feeling rushed.
I feel the provider Kristen we had for my daughter's 12 year old checkup was fantastic. Not only was she a true professional, but warm and kind as well.
They were great, knew it would be busy because of physicals at this time of year, had more staff on. Very good visit!!! She spent so much time with us and answered every question we had, did not feel rushed at all. Great Pediatrician!!!
loved our experience! very receptive to my child's needs
Love CCP Healthquest! Receptionists are always friendly and patient. Nurses are great with kids. All the medical providers take time to listen.
I appreciated the thorough, compassionate care we received at our visit. She allowed my daughter to listen to her heart to help her not be afraid. She gave her crayons while there was a short wait. She helped us carry everything out to the van.
the wait was long but otherwise my experience was wonderful.
the ladies in the front office are always, always super nice and helpful!
We had never had this PA before and we thought she was great. very thorough- helpful- kind.
When my child became unwell during the appointment, she spent extra time with him to make sure he was better medically. She was compassionate and caring, and I felt like my son was in good hands when his routine visit turned not-so-routine.
Kristen called the next morning to check on my daughter's wellness after a head injury visit the night before. That was above and beyond regular standard of care.
Always very nice and helpful... anytime I walk out of there I feel like we have a plan of action. Even though we live over 30 minutes away, I keep her here because I just really like the drs and the office. Had her in the ER last week and one nurse told me she even moved into Ohio and kept her children at this office bc they are the best in pgh. Never a complaint or problems when dealing with them. They get her in same day when we are having an issue.
The care provider was friendly, polite and thorough. We are pleased to have met her.
