Carly loves Dr. Spahr. she makes her feel comfortable, and she is always on top of things. couldn't ask for a better doctor for my daughter.
We are new to this practice, have seen Dr. Sphar twice and are very happy with her, and the rest of the staff.
We had a very long wait between seeing the nurse and Doctor, about 45 minutes, which is a rather long time to be waiting in a small room with nothing to entertain a sick baby. The doctor was very apologetic, and the actual care was very good, so I am not overly concerned but wanted to mention it.
she was good. Just didn't look at everything i asked for to be looked at.
My son really liked the nurse Gerald. Also, we appreciated that Dr. Spahr proactively raised topics that are important around age 11, such as bathing and video game usage.
I love going to CCP Mt. Lebanon. Everyone there is great!
I've always liked the care given to my children from this facility. The receptionist/ Dr. went above and beyond to get all three of my children checked in one visit.
Dr. Spar is very thorough with my daughter in answering all of her questions and concerns. The nurse was also very good.
She is great and I highly recommend her to anyone who needs a pediatrician. She is always listening and attentive and great with the children.
This was one of the best well visits we have ever had. I appreciated Dr. Spahr's thoroughness during this visit and discussions with me and my child.
always a good experience at ccp mt lebanon
She advised me right away that there may be a delay in her ability to see us right away, due to another emergency that had arisen in the office. She kept us updated on her availability. Even though we didn't see her until about 30 minutes after our scheduled time, she was very honest about their time issues. I really appreciated that. When she did get to us, she spent an appropriate amount of time and care for my daughter.
Dr. Spahr is always the best! She is attentive, caring, and patient. My family loves her!
Provider was sensitive to the fact that we had another appointment and worked professionally, courteously, and efficiently to help us complete our visit in time. I appreciated the provider's sensitivity to our needs!
dr. Spahr is an excellent caring knowledgeable Doctor that is a wonderful listener.
We appreciated Dr. Spahr's pro-active approach. Although my daughter plans to get her driver's permit, she was too lazy to find the application on the internet and fill it out. Dr. Spahr knew that a doctor's signature would be needed on her driver's permit application and she filled out the form, signed it, and gave it to us. She also anticipated the shots and information that will be required by my daughter's college this summer.
we have been seeing the doctors at this practice for 20 years now they are all wonderful!!!!!
Dr. Spahr is just wonderful! She knows my children so well and it is always such a pleasure to see her. I feel very confident in her ability as a physician and really respect her opinion, because she does know my children so well. She communicates effectively with us and talks to not only me, but also my child.
Dr. Spahr always show great care, concern, and knowledge. She is always familiar with my history and asks many questions about issues or concerns that I have.
I had many concerns going into the visit since we were going to talk about a plan of care that I was a bit apprehensive about my daughter beginning. Dr. Spahr answered all of our questions and even things that I did not know to ask were addressed. My daughter feels very comfortable talking with the doctor about her concerns. We love the practice.
We have moved away and now live 1 hour from this provider, but I really like the doctors, the staff, and the care my children receive that we have continued to travel rather than seek a provider closer to our home.
My son really liked the doctor a lot. He wants to see her again.
It's always a pleasure to interact with Dr. Spahr, Dr. Gotkiewicz and nurses and staff at this office. Thank you!
Dr. Spahr is the best pediatrician we've ever had. she doesn't just respond to problems, she thinks about wellness ahead of time. She speaks directly to my daughter and my daughter to her, even though she is only 8. My daughter's confidence in her is very high as is mine. We see the long-term with Dr. Spahr and I only wish she was my physician as well!
Did not consider mother's input at all. I know when my child is sick and they were sick, not suffering from allergies (as suggested by dr).
Dr. Spahr has handled all four of my children in a professional and caring manner. She spent extra time with my children and is the best provider I have seen with them for a long time.
Dr. Spahr is excellent. My daughter always feels very comfortable with her.
