Dr. DiCenzo provided excellent care durin my son's well visit. She knows my children well and she engages my children during the visit. She is extremely educated and knowledgeable and yet she can explain medical issues in easy to understand ways.
Dr Decenzo was amazing. She listened and answered all my questions. She is very knowledgeable.
she was wonderful esp because my children were not behaving
She is the BEST. Talked on my son's level, not to me. Included him with questions/answers. Just love her.
this was the first time we were at this provider and they treated us with respect and helped get all my daughters problems under control
Excellent visit with a caring physician. Calmed a worried mom!
Dr. Dicenzo was fantastic! Her interaction with my son during our routine visit was great. It was well worth the wait to see the physician instead of the NP or PA.
doctor and staff were awesome
Dr. Dicenzo was wonderful last night in helping my child. He had a severe reaction to medication and thanks to her is doing a lot better today already.
Dr. Dicenzo and Dr. Mendel take extremely good care of my children. They are thorough, knowledgeable, caring and conscientious. I feel there are no other pediatricians I would want to see.
I love Health Quest and after leaving the appointment, my daughter said that Dr. Tina was her favorite doctor ever.
Dr. Dicenzo is a great pediatrician. She has seen my daughter many times in the past 17 years. She is very caring and listens to what the parent and child are saying. She has great rapport with children and helps to make the child comfortable during the visit. I have recommended her to family and friends.
We could NOT be happier with Ms. Pam at the desk, Nurse Tonya and Dr. DiCenzo. They are all FABULOUS!!
We feel extremely fortunate to have a wonderful pediatrician and we love working with Dr. DiCenzo.
Dr. Dicenzo is the best! We always hope she is the doctor that we will see when we are there. We never feel rushed and she takes time with us to explain what is going on. When we have questions, she answers them in a way that we understand. We feel that she genuinely cares about her patients, which you don't find that often.
Attentive, compassionate and understanding as always!!
the best doctor and office
we had a great visit and truly appreciate Dr. DiCenzo. she takes time with her patients and shows she cares. She is intelligent and knows what she is talking about to give the best care to my children.
i have been taking my children to this provider for almost 4 years and LOVE them. They are friendly and intune with my children.
I have been taking my children her for over 4 years. They are very respectful and knowledgeable and am very comfortable with their approach as well as LOVE the staff.
My son personally requested to see Dr. DiCenzo. Need I say more?! She is approachable, easy to understand, and is a child advocate and the child aware of this in her approach.
this is only our second time seeing Dr. Dicenzo but we love her! she takes her time and talks with the child as well as the parent. she covers all issues and concerns. she wants to help your child in any way possible. best pediatrician we've ever seen!
I was very impressed by the way that the doctor spoke to my daughter. She had a very calming yet straight forward approach which ensured that my daughter was comfortable and cooperative during the visit. I'mean actually considering changing from my primary office (which is much more convenient ) to the Gibsonia office so that we can continue with Dr Dicenzo. I felt a great connection with her I'm that short visit. The doctors at our regular office are also wonderful but I just think Dr Dicenzo brought a little more to the table. I am doing the survey on my phone which doesn't allow me to see as I type or scroll through to proof read so I apologize if this has odd typos or sentences.
Nothing but great things to say...Dr. DiCenzo always goes above and beyond. I fully trust her with the care of my children.
Dr. DiCenzo is professional, thorough and very caring. She is an amazing doctor!
dr dicenzo is absolutely wonderful and understanding
From receptionist, to nurse, to Dr. DiCenzo I could not have asked for more compassion and better care in our time of need during our emergency. They ALL went above and beyond to assist me with my injured child AND my 2 other children who were quite upset that their brother was hurt. When my children need any medical care, my "mom meter" goes from insanely high to calm as soon as I know that Dr. DiCenzo will be examining them. She is FABULOUS...not only knowledgeable in medicine, but is so amazing with my kids AND she "treats" me as a mom with kindness and understanding. I would take my children no place else. A MILLION thanks to the entire staff!
Dr. Tina and the staff are great. They are professional and respectful of my son and myself. Dr. Tina treats my almost 17 year old son like an adult allowing him to participate in decisions regarding his healthcare.
I was able to get my child immediate help for a crucial problem and get him back to school. She told me exactly what was wrong and how he would be treated for the problem. I felt very safe and confident while we were there.
consistent excellence in every way for 14 years
we love Dr. DiCenzo! Salways listens and answers any questions we may have. She's also very "real" with us when explaining things. She's an excellent provider and we would recommend her to anyone!
Dr Dicenzo is a wonderful caring doctor. She listens to and respects our needs and wishes while still providing the needed medical advice. Very trustworthy health care provider.
We've been patients at this practice for over 15 years. This was a walk in appointment, and we did not have a long wait. We were thrilled that Dr. DiCenzo was our provider for this visit. She engaged my son the entire visit and encouraged him towards making healthy and smart choices as he moves into middle school. So glad she has been able to be a part of my kids medical care - she is the best!
Dr Dicenzo is an excellent Physician. Caring, kind, loving and concerned.
always get straight, concise, accurate information from all providers in this practice. always have the knowledge and information to back up advice given. love this group
We feel so blessed to have Dr. DiCenzo as our kids' pediatrician! She has been the absolute epitome of a perfect pediatrician!
We love Dr DiCenzo. Although we don't visit the office frequently she remembers us and treats us so well. VERY VERY happy with her!!
Everyone at HealthQuest Pediatrics, from the office staff, to the nurses, to the doctors are wonderful. My children, now teenagers, have been seeing Dr. DiCenzo since they were babies and trust her completely. She has always listened to them and explained things to them in a way that they could understand. I can't say enough good things about her.
we waited an entire hour to be seen. I understand we have an amazing doctor and that she gives her patients the time they deserve, but an hour to wait with children is uncalled for.
Dr. DeCenzo is wonderful. had her for a wellness exam. Did not feel rushed and talked to my child like she cared.
Best pediatric practice in Pittsburgh. Dr. DiCenzo is so good at explaining everything to the child as well as the parent. Wouldn't go anywhere else.
My kids love Dr. DiCenzo. Thanks for making the kids' visits as painless as possible!
this dr is awesome
Dr. Dicienzo always takes her time obtain the history of the problem and understanding the onset and progression of my child's problem in deciding the appropriate cause and treatment. Always explains in terms that my child can understand.
I have been very satisfied with the care we receive every time we see Dr. Dicenzo.
this provider is a skilled clinician, great expertise, amazing bedside manner with my 2 year old. also she always--this visit included--takes my perspective as a parent seriously--and I value that greatly.
Dr Dicenzo is awesome. She's fantastic with the kids, and very compassionate. She always explains everything and is very competent with her decisions.
We were seen almost immediately during walk-in hours, and everyone there was helpful, courteous, and understanding. The quality of care was excellent, and we are lucky to have this health care provider in our community.

Dr. DiCenzo took ample time with both of my children. She asked them questions and explained things to them on their level. She is just wonderful with children!!!
Dr. Dicenzo is fantastic. Wonderful bedside manner, very helpful, extremely easy to talk with.
This was our first time seeing her and would again if need be.
Dr. DiCenzo is the one we request every time we have my daughter's yearly visit and for sick visits.

We are very thankful that we have her to care for our daughter.
Nothing really. Just a normal good visit
Everyone at HealthQuest is wonderful!
Dr. DiCenzo is a wonderful, compassionate, thorough & professional physician. My two daughters are new patients of hers, and we couldn't be more happy.
Dr. DiCenzo is the best doctor and we value her advice.
Dr. Valentina Dicenzo is the best provider any parent aspires to treat their child. The office staff has always been very respectful, helpful, courtesy and caring to all my children and myself. Not enough words to express how wonderful Dr. Dicenzo is.
We have been seeing Dr. Dicenzo since the children were born. They are 16 and 19 now. We have gotten excellent care for all these years. I refer people all the time there!
I had to change doctors for my daughters b/c we moved and was very nervous but the doctor and her staf were fantastic. I was very happy!!!
dr sat on step stool to be at child's level to talk with child during exam. very attentive to child.
Dr. DiCenzo is a wonderful doctor, she takes her time with you and gives you the information you need to make good deicsions.
This practice has been wonderful in the care of my 3 children through the years. I highly recommend them.
As always we were taken care of with respect and courtesy
Staff is always caring and concerned for the children and their well beign
this doctor is so sweet and GREAT with kids!
We have a great deal of respect for Dr. DiCenzo. She is always thorough when we visit with her. She takes the time to talk to us and the children. We never feel rushed. We would highly recommend Dr. DiCenzo to anyone looking for a pediatrician.
We love Dr. Dicenzo! Not only is she extremely knowledgeable, but so enthusiastic. She explains everything in detail; making sure you understand. She takes her time and never makes you feel like she's rushing you out the door.
Dr. Tina takes the time to talk directly to my daughter and ask her how she is doing. I love how she understands my daughter's needs and makes her feel important during her visit.
Dr. DiCenzo should be praised for her work and skill with children and parents. She gave my daughter quality time and attention. She is knowledgeable and profressional. she is very skilled and I highly trust her.
We love Dr.DiCenzo and request her everytime we visit. My boys both like her too!
Dr. Dicenzo is an awesome pediatrician. She takes your concerns seriously, listens carefully, and understands that moms know their kids better than anyone. She's good with the kids and my boys still feel comfortable seeing her even though they are entering puberty. I am sure eventually we will have to choose a male doctor but I will miss her tremendously.
I was very impressed with Dr. DiCenzo's attention to detail and her thorough questions and examination. She took a great deal of time to listen to my concerns and interact with my son. She wrote down the treatment plan and assured us that her office staff would call to review the information as well. I am comfortable with the plan of action she determined, and I have a great deal of confidence in her judgement. We previously met with another physician to discuss these concerns, but I don't feel that we were taken seriously or that there was much concern for my child's wellbeing. However, this appointment was much different and was an incredibly positive experience. Many thanks!
Dr. Divincenzio was wonderful with my daughter. She took extra time with her to explain some very important issues associated with being a teenager. She genuinely cared about my daughter's well-being.
dr. dicenzo is awesome. i always request to see her even if I have to wait extra days/weeks. I have never felt rushed in her care. she is wonderful.
I highly recommend Dr Dicenzo to other parents because of the great care she provides our family. She takes time to listen to my concerns and thoroughly goes through so much information at each appointment. As a first time mom, I truly rely on her guidance to ensure we am doing everything we can for my daughter. She is by far the best pediatrician we have ever worked with.
we love her! she is so nice and really shows interest in the kids. plus she listens and answers all of my questions. she even took the time to look up a study I had seen that she wasn't aware of and discussed it on the spot - during her lunch break! awesome!
We have always received exceptional care from Dr Dicenzo. I would & have recommended the practice to others. She is great with my son, spoke directly to him and listened with interest to his comments & questions.
Dr. DiCenzo is a phenomenal physician who truly goes above and beyond for her patients and families. Her closest office is 40 minutes from my home and is well worth the travel - I wouldn't go anywhere else! I do highly recommend her and her practice to many!
Dr. Dicenzo goes above & beyond. Never have been more impressed with a doctor, as I have been with her!
