Dr Kursmark is absolutely wonderful. A perfect provider in every way.
Dr Kursmark is always attentive to our child and provides excellent care.
always had good experience with this provider.
I came in for a sick visit when my son had a high fever for 5 days. my son was not swabbed, tested for anything, no blood work to find out what was causing this. I was told it was viral & it would have to run it's course
overall a good appointment, some of our concerns are left at a stand still for future monitoring which is frustrateing.
everyone was fantastic. the front desk staff was understanding when I forgot my wallet. Dr. K was super helpful and reassuring when responding to our questions. Linda the MA was very appropriate with our baby as he cried and screamed, and made us feel comfortable.
Dr. Kursmark is excellent. She is extremely knowledgeable and we never feel rushed during our visit. She is truly caring and exceptional.
I am extremely pleased with the care mychild receives. Dr. K is very helpful when I have questions or concerns related to my child's health and makes suggestions without making me feel bad or judged. I've learned a lot from her and always feel my child is receiving the very best care.
Great experience. Provider was very knowledgable and friendly.
Dr. Kursmark is a fantastic physician and I feel so lucky that we found her.
Dr. Kursmark is a fantastic doctor. She always provides amazing care.
The physician was excellent and answered all questions.
we love our pcp.
We've been glad with our pediatrician. The only thing I want to complain is the wait time. I made a 9am appointment in the hope of being seen on time, but ended up waiting for additional 30 mins. All other people in the waiting room arrived later than us were seen before us. Really hope this won't happen again.
it wasn't so much that she didn't spend time,but the time spent was purely transactional. this was a newborn 1st visit and Doctor rowland was booked, he typically does more at the visit as well as more coddling' and saying how great mom is doing with the baby. I absolutely recommend dr. rowland, but I would not be able to excitedly recommend this doctor to my friends (although it was by no means a bad' experience either!).
The Doctor was very friendly and took her time with my son.
I absolutely love this doctor. She does not seem rushed. She took time to talk in depth about all my concerns. but she was also not pushy and discussed what options we were able to do.
I loved how she offered a cream to help my child's acne. She was also helpful with concerns I had about my child.
Provider was cool, would be nice if she could be warmer in her interaction.
Dr. Kursmark is great. She seems to be very caring and remembers my son.
I have three children and we are always in the office for something. the staff and doctors are very nice and know my children's situations and histories well. I feel like we problem solve issues together. I'm very pleased with our care.
Always pleased with the kind and professional care our child receives!
The provider listened to what my child had to say
This was our first visit and we were very happy.
our doctor is amazing !
They put my child at ease about getting a flu shot. They listen to him & to me. We never feel rushed.
I really appreciate Dr. Kursmurk she is always welcoming and respectful. She addresses any concerns I have timely and professionally. She is great with recommending services and care to support my sons health and development. Highly recommend her,
We love Dr. Kursmark. She's wonderful with our daughter and always answers our questions fully and respectfully. she's a wonderful provider.
We waited over an hour to see the Dr. We came in from a referral from our son's allergist asking us to get him tested for a MRSA infection. The Dr. said she had never seen anything like it but seemed sure it wasn't an infection. She gave us benedryl for the swelling and an antibiotic for other sores on his legs. We went to our other physician today who told us his swelling is 100% an infection-we also got him tested for MRSA. I will be following up with a letter. We were dismissed with a possibly dangerous infection and told it looked like an allergic reaction. I asked if he spiked a fever if I should take him to the hospital and was told to monitor at home. This is terrible advise. I am appalled.
Dr. Kursmark always answers any questions I have. She is extremely patient with my child and works to put my child at ease when she seems afraid of being at the doctor's office.
she is always very knowledgeable and provided excellent anticipatory guidance
Excellent doctor. very thorough and kind.
Dr. k is amazing. She is very thorough and really makes me feel that she cares about me and my children. I would recommend her to everyone.
dr krusmark was wonderful. she listened, had looked at the X-ray prior and immediately fixed the problem with my daughters elbow. can't say enough good things about her or our visit.
We love Dr. Kursmark. I find her friendly, knowledgeable and easy to talk to.
Very caring, listens to my concerns and gives the best medical advice possible that works for my child
We love all the pediatricians and nurses at CCP Shadyside. to a person they have been friendly, knowledgeable, and practical.
The Dr was very helpful and did a thorough examination.
she is a superb physician ! would definitely recommend
Dr. Kursmark is an amazing physician. I trust her completely with the health of my child, and she has outstanding bedside manner.
Dr. Kusmark is amazing!
very thorough, great listener, we trust her care
my child only sees Dr Kelly so I was very nervous about having someone else see him who is unfamiliar with his conditions but Dr kursmark was amazing she was patient she listened to understand my concerns and questions I am very pleased with the care she provided. my children have been patients of Kathy Kelly for 18 years and I am pleased to say she is apart of the best team
the visit was to make sure my son did not have a sinus infection but I asked about my son remaining with the office past his 18th birthday and if the office offered TB testing. she also provided first meningitis vaccine
this was a walk in express care type of appt. it was great. we were seen almost right away and were out in 15 minutes. they. swabbed her throat and examined her and gave instructions
We really love Dr. Kursmark. She's great with the kids and always takes the time listen and answer all our questions.
Dr. Kursmark is an amazing doctor. Her bedside manner is great. She is efficient and respects everyone's time while still being thorough. I have never felt rushed in an appointment, and I appreciate how much time and attention she gives us.
My child loves Dr. Kursmark and the office staff!
Dr. Kursmark is a great doctor. Never had a problem and appreciates her level of care for all my children
This was our first time seeing this provider. I was very pleased with how she had reviewed her record prior to seeing us. She was very attentive, answering all of our questions and asking many of her own. She even wrote down the answers to my questions on our paperwork.
we always have a great experience at this office
We used the walk-in sick child clinic and were seen within 10 minutes of arriving. My teenage son and I had not met Dr. Kursmark previously, but it felt like we had. She made us feel at ease. I would definitely see her again.
I very much respect dr kursmark!! she is an outstanding doctor. and I enjoy watching her with my kids they adore her!! and her opinion on my children is the only opinion I'll listen too. she is fantastic.
Dr. Kursmark was fabulous she saw us promptly and fit us in at the end of the day. She also guided us through the next few days as our child required further blood work. She is a wonderful provider!
Visit took longer because everything was repeated with the attending after the resident/med student saw my son. However, all of my questions were answered completely, which I appreciated.
Although very professional this provider's ability to build a trusting relationship with my teenager is weak.
Prompt, precise and very insightful physician
Dr. Kursmark is very nice and helpful.
Always pleased with Pittsburgh Pediatrics!!
The good experience is that she asks lots of questions about my child route habit and medical history to acquire as much as information about my child.
everyone in the office is nothing short of polite and courteous. they treat my toddler like she is special and important. they are wonderful and I've always been very happy with every experience I had with all of the staff, doctors and med students. I will always highly recommend this office and more specifically dr kersmark!
she was very polite made my daughter very comfortable
We always great visits with this provider
She is an amazing Doctor! Thank you!
we absolutely love my sons provider she's been seeing him for 4 years and I would do it all over again
