Lauren has become like family to us over the years,she is the absolute BEST at listening to my daughter's problem and putting together a treatment plan for her.I would not take my family anywhere else ! And the receptionist is absolutely wonderful to.We love the upmc south location as Well! We have never had a bad experience seeing Lauren, it has been nothing but wonderful since day one with her.
She was good.
Lauren is very kind and personable. She takes all of my concerns seriously and provides answers/explanations for all my questions.
Lauren is very considerate and concerned about my health. She's really helped me.
Dr Lauren is the best!!
She did an excellent job of engaging my child in the treatment decisions.
we have been going to Children's Dermatology for over a year now and everyone on staff are all very friendly and knowledgeable. I took my older son to this group a few years ago for similar issues and because of our past experience I chose them to go back to.
provider was excellent.. service was very fast, as was getting the appointment.
Provider was awesome! She explained to us what my son had and how we were going to cure it. We already made our next fallow up appointment with her!
Very kind and compassionate. Tried to ease my child's fears while providing excellent care.
she was helpful and excellent , appointment Was late due to traffic from an accident beyond her control
absolutely perfect Beautiful, wonderful, pleasant, kind, And angel on earth. No kidding! My daughter is still talking about it
Dr. Lauren was the BEST dermatologist I have visited. she was completely thorough and had excellent bedside manner with my child. we would schedule with her again over everyone else we have seen.
went well and quickly in and out of the office. my child was nervous and I only had to tell one medical person in the office and this was passed on to each provider throughout our visit. For me this was excellent communication of my child's needs.
My daughter (13 y/o) specifically asked me to make sure Dr. Gehris knew that while she loves Dr. Gehris, she really liked this provider and thought she did a great job.
Lauren was great! Very helpful and understanding. I can't wait to work with her to help my acne.
Lauren Mytrysak was delightful. My daughter felt totally comfortable discussing her skin issues with her. She was friendly and knowledgeable. She was spot on with her diagnosis. Elena's skin began clearing up immediately.
Lauren is great! We often see her when my daughter has her derm appointment, approximately every 3 months. She listens to our concerns, answers our questions, treats my 17 year old like an adult.
It was a great appointment, the doctor was wonderful!
Best pediatric dermatologist we ever had. Others we had weren't even sure about our baby's diagnosis and made our baby's condition worse. We are so glad we transfered to this service provider.
excellent job done by all
This provider was sensitive, honest and explained clearly all of the options available to treat my daughters acne symptoms. I was very impressed with how she interacted with my 17 year old. Lauren knows how to handle teenagers! Her professional expertise combined with her people skills make her an excellent physicians assistant. I will request her in the future.
We had a great experience. My daughter is only 5 and had to have a wart treated with liquid nitrogen. She was very, very nervous and the Dr's did an amazing job of calming her down and explaining exactly what was going to happen. I would highly recommend this practice.
Lauren is so sweet. We just love her
Lauren M was very sweet with my daughter during her derm appointment. made her feel comfortable and confident that her skin will look better soon, as long as she follows her directions. I would highly recommend her to other parents looking for great care for their children's skin.
Lauren is always so friendly and kind. She is very patient and takes a lot of time to explain things to us.
always, always, always happy with the care provided by practitioners in this office. from door to door we receive the best of care.
Outstanding! Truly cared about what was important to our son. She changed his care plan to adjust for him to play and excel at football. She understood that it was important to him.
it was a great visit
Lauren is wonderful! She was really friendly and nice and put my daughter at ease.
Lauren is outstanding all the way around.
Love this provider I will recommend any of my friends or family to go here
We could not love Lauren anymore than we do. She always addresses my daughter with compassion and really makes us feel comfortable during the visits. Her and Courtney have been amazing!
always clear, confident, and has great rapport with me and my son
Couldn't say enough. She is wonderful.
Very happy with my experience at this office. everyone was pleasant and attentive. I had to call the office due to a pricing issue with a prescribed medication. Lauren called me back quickly. She agreed we could change the formulation saving me $500 and getting the med my child needed.
Lauren is GREAT. She is so kind and spoke to my son in a way that he knew exactly what to expect with his treatment. She definitely made him feel at ease and completed the procedure timely and effectively. I loved that she explained everything to him since it was his foot and his visit. My son left smiling.
Lauren Mytrysak was amazing. She cared so much about helping my son's condition to improve. She was kind, caring and sincere. Most of all though, she really knew what she was talking about and shared the information in a very relatable way. She is really terrific!!
exceptional care provided, as always.
Everyone in the office is extremley nice.
The physician assistant we saw was extremely sweet. My daughter loved her.
The doctor on this visit was extra kind and knowledgeable. it was the best visit we have had there.

On every visit, I have always been treated with the upmost courtesy and I love Dr. Lauren. She listens to me, explains everything clearly and does not rush me.
everyone was fantastic. The doctor is and always is very helpful kind and makes my daughter feel at ease. We are extremely pleased with our doctor
This was my second appointment with Lauren in which I requested her because of how well the first appointment went. The other providers I have seen have been great as well; what I liked is that I didn't have to talk to another doctor/assistant before the actual doctor came in. Lauren was easy to talk with and was very helpful in understanding my skin care regimen.
First time visit and was very happy with my visit.
She was very informative
lauren was so nice to my daughter she loved her
This practice is wonderful & I particularly like this physician.
