My children both just love Tamera, and it makes going to the pediatrician easy when they respond so well to her. We left a different pediatric practice 3 years ago due to bad office experiences, even though we loved the doctor there. We then came to this practice, and at this practice, not only do we love the provider, we also have had no practice/office staff issues.
Tamara is always professional, friendly, and helpful.
We love coming into the office to see Tamara! She is wonderful with our little girl and always explains things to us. Both of our children see Tamara. We feel so fortunate to have a kind, well educated, and thorough provider for our kids! Thanks!
always had the best of care
She took adequate time with us and answered all questions we had. She also addressed not only me, but my 13 year old son.
I really appreciated the good care my daughter received and that the provider took the time to answer my questions and make us feel comfortable.
Tamara took her time. she really listened to my child.
Tamara is wonderful. She is very direct in her communication. I also like that she listens intently to me and my concerns, but also spends time talking with my son. he is only 4, but it makes it a better process for him.
great experience as always with Tamara.
We recently moved from Pittsburgh and it was our first time in your office. From start to finish everyone (Recieptionist, nurse and Tamara were outstanding! a huge change from our previous office we were at. Very happy to be there and thank you!!
Tamara always treats us with respect and is genuinely attentive. she never makes us feel rushed but rather makes sure that we have all that we need from her before we leave. I would recommend Tamara to anyone seeking quality care with compassion and professionalism. as long as she remains there, we have no desire to look elsewhere for care for our children!
My child saw Tamara today. She makes my children feel comfortable in the office. She is a very warm and comforting person. My children absolutely love her. We request her every time they need to be seen. She is very passionate about her job and it really shows!!!
Tamara is always helpful, knowledgeable, and respectful. She never makes me feel like she is rushing the appointment or going through the motions.
this provider is one of the best!
Although Tamara is not my usual provider, it was apparent that she took appropriate time prior to or visit to be familiar with her history.
we absolutely love Dr Burns and Tamara. They are always friendly, personable, take their time with your child and explain things well. we would recommend them to all our friends.
the provider seemed rushed.
Always called in a timely manner and Dr Murphy is always polite and can relate being a parent as well!
Tamara not only provided excellent care during my son's sick visit but made follow up referrals and called me herself with test results received over the weekend. She also sent the prescription to the closest 24 hour pharmacy so treatment could be started immediately.
Tamera is excellent. My children love to see her and she provides quality care.
We love Tamera. She is always kind and gives you the time and attention you need. You never feel like you're rushed to be in and out.
This was a first visit for us transferring from Allegheny health network. We were very unhappy there and felt like noone listened to our concerns regarding our sons health. Tamara was was easy to talk to and provided us with great information. wish we would have made the change sooner.
Tamara was very thorough and knowledgeable. She answered all of my questions and was very good with my son. Highly recommend.
I really love Dr. Tamara! She always takes time to answer all of my questions and is supportive in answering them! You can tell she really cares about what she does and she is always bright and cheerful! I always enjoy our visit!
Ms. Tamara Murphy is excellent, the best provider I've ever experienced. She has a superb bedside manor and is extremely thorough. if I enter the office concerned for my child, I leave the office feeling at ease and that my child had the best possible care. I would not trust anyone but Ms tamera with my child. I am currently expecting my second child and will makesure that Ms Tamera will be the new child's provider also.
she did a great job!
Tamara was great!! She answered all my questions, was friendly, and came to the exam room in a timely manner. However, I had to wait quite a long time for the nurse to come in at the end of the appointment for my child to receive scheduled immunizations.

We always are treated with respect when our son is treated at this office and feel that our concerns are addressed and taken seriously. He is a healthy boy and we feel confident when we leave the office that we are doing a great job.
Tamera Murphy is a great provider. She takes time to listen to our concerns. I also like that she addresses my child directly, instead of just talking to the parent. Not only does she have good pediatric office experience, but her experience as a parent herself makes her a great provider and easy to relate to.
Tamara is wonderful- she knows my child and is always very thorough.
Tamara is amazing! She always explains things well to us and our 10 year old son. She continues to integrate the developmental needs of our son while speaking to us/him during the visit.
I feel confortable with that Office
Tamara took great care in listening to the concerns I had about my son, never once making me feel rushed. I was shocked to check my watch when we were leaving, not realizing just how much time Tamara had spent with us. She provided great suggestions that made me feel comfortable moving forward.
The office girls are AMAZING and kind. The always go above and beyond!! The nurses are compassionate and caring. Tamara is the best. Thank you for the exceptional care once again! :)

We absolutely loved Tamara, my daughter has been talking about how nice she was several days after the doctors appointment. This after receiving a flu shot, which she doesn't like! She isn't our regular doctor but I specifically wanted to get my daughter in on that date, but we were so pleased with her we would absolutely request her in the future.

We love Dr. Tamara. She knows all 4 of my children, remembers issues they have and is always willing to answer any questions. She is very sweet and explains everything clearly and never makes me feel bad for asking any question.
In the last year, I've probably come into contact with more than 20 care providers (doctors, specialists) for my families care.Tamara is the provider I trust most!Tamara is caring, compassionate, truly listens, engaged in connecting with my children and myself, explains the why's( both why choosing certain treatments but also why issue is occurring,) and ensures all processes function to help us have the best possible experience.
Tamera was great with Asher and helped answer all questions I had!
Tamara did a great job with my newborn baby! She was awesome and if I cannot see the doctor I definitely would like to see her again!
Tamara is Amazing and an asset.
I really appreciate how Tamara takes a minute to build rapport with our children/engage them on their level prior to assessing them clinically. We are very satisfied when we receive her care.
Tamara has eased my worries about childhood vaccinations.
We love Tamara. She's always friendly and great with kids and adults. We trust her and feel confident in the care she provides.
Tamara was very thorough with our concern and had a lot of good information for us. She was attentive and showed true concern. My daughter had an episode after receiving a flu shot of feeling faint, and Tamara was so calm and helpful. She got her a snack to regulate her blood sugar and made absolutely sure my daughter was ok before letting us go. Both of my girls have been seeing Tamara since she was in Dr. Russo's office and we are so pleased with the care we receive from her. We were very sad to see Dr. Russo retire (though very happy for Dr. Russo!) but we are so glad to have someone else that takes the time to listen to all of our concerns and questions and seems genuinely invested in our family's healthcare.
very fast getting a same day appointment for my sick child and staff was very caring and gentle with child.
this was the first time we have been here because our child is 6 days old. after birth she had light therapy and the hospital recommend we get in for a follow up with a provider asap. even with the holidays they were able to get us in next day.

awesome people with a lot of care
Tamara is always so great with out children. She listens to our concerns and gives great advice and treatment plans. the nursing staff is also excellent at this office.
Tamara is phenomenal. She accurately diagnosed the problem (pyloric stenosis) and got the ultrasound ordered ASAP. She helped us make informed decisions about a sudden, required surgery. Lindsay, the nurse, was also very helpful and made calls to pediatric hospitals on my behalf while I was at the ultrasound with my newborn, so that we were better informed and chose the best surgery site possible.
very happy with our visit
We love Tamara. She is very personable and confident in her assessments of our children. This is reassuring. I always feel like I can ask questions without feeling rushed and Tamara listens attentively. She smiles and has a nice personality. Thanks Tamara!
