Dr. Dicenzo has been providing excellent care for my kids for 12 years. She is always very thorough and knowledgeable. She takes our concerns seriously. She consistently speaks directly and age appropriately to my kids about their health and the importance of making healthy choices in all areas of their lives. I leave our well visits feeling blessed to have her treating my children. I've never been disappointed with one of her visits. She is an amazing doctor!
Dr. Dicenzo is hands down one of the best doctors around! Even with a parent in the room, she is careful to engage the child, make the child engage with her, and it is a beautiful encounter to watch. I appreciated how she spoke to my daughter about not only her health but about things she might encounter as a middle school student. She was amazing and I really love that my children have her as their doctor.
Thorough check-up, addressed all questions and concerns, knowledgeable about all care currently being provided. We always have a great experience.
We love Dr. Dicenzo and we have had a great experience with her so far. She is outgoing, warm, and takes plenty of time with our son. She listens to our concerns and answers our questions. She does a full physical evaluation and you can tell she cares about her patients. The only thing I will say is she tends to give a lot of information at once and it can be a little overwhelming to process everything (but that's just me.. I should probably write everything down!) She also talks pretty fast & interrupts sometimes when you have something to say. However; overall, she is great at what she does and we will continue to see her!
Dr. Dicenzo is awesome. She related well with my daughter and as always was very knowledgeable about my daughter's medical issue. I especially appreciated that she addressed my daughter directly and engaged her in her own health care.

Dr. Tina is the BEST of the best!I have recommended her to 4 other families, and every single one of them cannot get over how thorough she is with their child, along with knowledgeable & she answers all questions & never rushes & spends up to an hour, (sometimes more) with your child, which is unheard of these days.

She was an excellent provider. She was thorough, willing to spend time on health concerns we had, and was very knowledgeable. We will definitely come back to see her.
Dr. Dicenzo was just wonderful. We had a bit of a wait, but that was expected for walk-in on a weekday night. She took the time to answer all my questions, despite it being nearly 7. My daughter loved her! I receive excellent care every time I'm at Hampton CCP. Can not say enough good things about all the providers, RNs/MAs and front office staff
Very friendly, kind and knowledgeable.
Dr Tina is excellent. She has a great way of dealing with kids and getting them to listen to her, as well as kindness and respect for the parents. She is very practical as well and doesn't order tests or x-rays that would harm a child when it isn't necessary. I trust her completely and she is our favorite dr in the practice group.
Dr. Dicenzo is amazing. I am so thankful for her. She is extremely knowledgeable, patient and works great with my kids. She is by far my favorite doctor. I really can't express enough how much I appreciate the time she spends with me and my children listening to my concerns and explaining her thoughts. Dr. Dicenzo is truly an Angel.
Dr. DiCenzo is a wonderful doctor! She attentively listens to the child and the parents. Then, she clearly diagnoses the problem. Our son had a colon issue after a virus, and she did an excellent job detecting this problem. She then called us back with an appropriate plan of action to help our son! Thsnk you!!!
We are so blessed to be in Dr. Dicenzo's care. She is empathetic, knowledgeable, and trustworthy.
Dr. Dicenzo took plenty of time with me and my son to examine him and answer my questions. She also went out of her way to see if my son's grandmother and I could get flu shots from their staff, for convenience and to protect Brayden and my 5 week old. Both of us were able to get flu shots to help to protect my children. We love Dr. Dicenzo!
She was super kind and engaged in the visit! She remember and had reviewed my history and was able to connect to me!
Dr Tina was amazing!!! so kind and had such I lovely approach with my son. She took the time needed to assess what the issues were, in a friendly and gentle manner, and spoke with my son and asked him how he was and explain things to him rather than just explaining things only to me. I really loved how she treated my son.
We love going to CCP Allison Park, worth the 40 min drive!

we absolutely love Dr DiCenzo and would follow her wherever she went that's how much we love her. She's knowledgeable, caring, and easy to talk to - what more could you want in a doctor?
Dr. Dicenzo is so thorough. She is well worth the wait! I don't care how long I have to wait to get my kid's appointments with her, or how long we have to wait in the waiting room. I recognize that that level of care takes time, and I can appreciate that she provides that for every patient she sees before us. I'd much rather have a quality appointment than a quick one. She is very respectful to me, and very kind and soft with my children.
We always get excellent care from Dr. DiCenzo, and all of the staff.
The doctor took her time and explained everything in detail. Gave the children EXCELLENT advice and was very caring, concerned, and involved.
We love Dr Tina. She is by far the best provider we have seen for our children. She always talks directly to our kids and makes them feel comfortable. She is patient and understanding when they are crying and upset. She is always kind and understanding to me and explains things perfectly.
Dr. DiCenzo is wonderful. We are very fortunate to have her as our Pediatrician.
Dr.DiCenzo is the best!

Dr. Dicenzo is wonderful. She listens, takes you seriously and always addreses the concern. We have been going to pediatricians for 17 years for 3 children and she is the only pediatrician I trust implicitly with my children.

We love Dr. Tina. She makes me feel confident and comfortable as a mom. Talks to me about any signs or issues she sees but doesn't make me feel bad or upset in my parenting skills. She talks directly to my children in a very nice way that makes them feel comfortable. She makes our visits enjoyable and spends a lot of time with us.
Dr. DiCenzo is an excellent doctor. wish she would see adults.
Dr. DiCenzo and staff are fantastic! So great to have staff who remember and acknowledge your child, from memory. Wonderful to have a doctor who can readily relate to an adolescent, as they have a child of their own along with all of their experiences.
Dr. Tina was great! she was attentive, and caring.
we love going to CCP and seeing Dr. Discenzo. she is fantasticwith children, compassionate, and thorough and the staff is always welcoming
always patient with the children and explains things so they understand.
Dr. was wonderful. She treated me and my child with respect. She acknowledged he was the patient, not me, and allowed him to answer. She was patient and kind with all of us (I had 2 other kiddos with me) and answered all of our questions.
none it was wonderful very happy with practice
Dr. DiCenzo is a wonderful, caring, and thorough doctor. I would highly recommend her to anyone.
Dr. DiCenzo was amazing with my daughter. My daughter is 13 and she is having some emotional problems and Dr. DiCenzo treated her with respect and my daughter opened up to her. She listened and explained and validated her feelings. I was relieved that she took her seriously and my daughter has asked to see her again in the future, when needed.
I could not be happier with the care we have received at Children's Community Pediatrics/Healthquest in Gibsonia. Dr. Valentina DiCenzo is everything you would want your child's doctor to be- extremely knowledgeable, warm, attentive, and friendly. She genuinely cares about her patients and parents. As a first-time mom, I appreciate the careful and considerate attention and reassurance Dr. DiCenzo has given me.
Dr. Dicenzo is fantastic. I think very highly of all of the providers, but she is my favorite based on her "bedside manner," knowledge, and depth of care she has provided for years for my children.
Dr. Dicenzo is the best. There is another provider at this office that I am always dissatisfied with. When I go in for a walk in and DiCenzo unexpectedly walks into our room, I feel so relieved. She genuinely listens to me when I express my concerns about my child and never makes me feel like I am silly for asking or being concerned.
Dr. Dicenzo is the absolute best. She talks with my child in ways he can understand and respond. She asks him questions, instead of me, even though I'm there, which is great for a 10 year old. Makes him feel like he's a part of his appointment. She's our favorite dr in that practice and the only one we see for well child visits.
all good things to say!
Dr. DiCenzo is absolutely wonderful! she is kind and compassionate and really takes time to listen and explain what is going on. it is also comforting knowing my child is in good hands with her medical knowledge and skills.
Dr. DiCenzo and staff are TOP NOTCH! We went for one ailment, and needed to address another. Dr. DiCenzo was not disturbed and addressed all concerns very calmly, with great patience and professionalism. We are very blessed to have a superior doctor and staff to compliment their teaming efforts. The receptionists always address everyone by name, upbeat, cheery and very understanding. Our highest recommendation for all of their exceptional work! Now reward them with a raise!
Excellent hand hygiene. We really like Dr. DiCenzo!
Thanks for the excellent care Dr. Valentina Dicenzo. Appreciate all your help.
we love Dr. DiCenzo - she is knowledgeable and take time to listen
We love Dr. Dicenzo! She is excellent at interacting with the kids and also always makes sure that I am happy with the decisions made in regard to their health. She takes her time with us and is very thorough.
Dr. DiCenzo is the best doctor my children have ever seen. she is thorough, intelligent, prepared, and speaks directly to my children without being patronizing. Dr. DiCenzo knows what she's doing and my husband and I trust her implicitly with the health care of our children.
My daughter has been seen in this office for the past 9 years, from her first newborn appointment to her current regular med checks. She's always had the best care here. I recommend this office to anyone looking for a new pediatrician in our area.
md spent extra time and ensured that all questions were answered. she also spent time ex planing what the next steps will be depending on how this treatment goes. very helpful and very highly recommended to everyone I talk to!
Dr. DiCenzo provided top-notch, quality care just like we have always received from her. She is enthusiastic and joyful, ready and willing to care for my children. She has a gift, and we are blessed to be served by her.
Dr. Dicenzo is fabulous!
We have seen Dr. Dicenzo since my children were born over 12 years ago. She takes her time and explains everything she is doing and teaches good health practices to the children in words they can understand, I wish she could be my doctor also! We love all of the nurses there also, everyone makes you feel so comfortable and well-cared for. We have always been able to get in to see a doctor within a few hours when our kids have been sick, which is so greatly appreciated. We also really like Dr. Menzel!
Dr. DiCenzo is always so kind and helpful during visits. Thank you for always ensuring our questions are answered. You are a great doctor!
Dr. Dicenzo is such an amazing doctor and the main reason we drive from Mars to take both of our kids to this office. She takes time to listen, but also gives insightful information regarding safety and health matters. I can be anxious about my kids but she always is so helpful and encouraging. I recommend her and this office to everyone I know.
I told the doctor that my son had a recent ear infection. I did not c her look in his ears. before we left I asked her about it and she stated that she did look in them, not sure how I missed it.
The office was very busy during the visit. It was a scheduled visit, but we did not have the staff or doctor's undivided attention due to the high volume of patients. This was verbalized to us. My children had questions to ask the doctor, but were flustered by the chaos and did not get to ask them.
Dr. DiCenzo is our choice pediatrician. My child requests her, which speaks volumes since he is a 17 yr old male. double thumbs up
very good experience. learned a lot to work with my son
very good experience
We get the best care at Healthquest. Our daughter was seen promptly, diagnosed thoroughly and we felt like it was a great visit.
Dr. DiCenzo provided outstanding care as we always expect. She is encouraging to our family and to our daughter. She gives our daughter attention first and then talks with us and I treasure that my daughter is important and valuable to her. Dr. DiCenzo is a wealth of knowledge. I appreciate her explanations and concern for our family. She knows her colleagues and specialists well, which gives me confidence when I have to seek more specialized care for my daughter. She has been a blessing to our family.
We love HealthQuest Pediatrics!
We can not put into words how thankful we are to have Dr.DiCenzo caring for our kids!
