we had walk-in apt. too many people in front. not enough space while waiting. took like an hr to wait
Very nice and thorough in the appointment! very knowledgeable
Very thorough in appointment and very nice
Dr. Shah was an absolute delight. We will be requesting her for all future appointments for our daughter.
provider was so knowledgeable and amazing!
Dr. Shah was truly fantastic to my family during this our first visit for our first child. Due to this experience, she will be our preferred physician not only due to her knowledge but also her sincere care for our family.
We really loved her! she was knowledgeable and easy to talk to. She took her time and I will definitely be retuning to her again with my children.
This was our first time with this provider and she was amazing. She spent a lot of time explaining about strep throat, even though she must have seen many patients with the same thing. She allowed time for me to ask questions and made sure I knew when to seek additional care for my daughter.
always very satisfied with the providers. they're very attentive and caring.
after waiting around an hour I was semi annoyed when dr shah entered the room then she explained why she was late. I do wish the front office would set an expectation of wait times. Dr.Shah is the first doctor I've worked with in this practice that took the them and heard me out with my sons concerns. I know she had a long day already and never rushed me or rushed to see another patient. She took the time to listen to my concern and did not brush off a diagnosis but wanted to be proactive and get bloodwork immediately on my son rather than waiting. She explained all of her reasoning and related if this was her child she would do that same thing. Dr Shah never talked down to me or questioned why I was there with my son she knew from his body language something wasn't adding up.
She took time to go over his medications and adjusted dosage as needed for his increased weight. Also made sure to address our concerns and ask many questions to ensure he was on track with growth both physically and mentally.
Great care. Excellent communicator.
Dr. Shah is amazing and our family loves her! She's so good with my children. You can tell she truly cares about them and their health. She explains things well, is very knowledgeable and spends time talking with us. We appreciate her so!
I love seeing Dr. Shah, she listens well & explains everything thoroughly
We love Dr. Shah! She is always kind and caring. It is clear that she loves her job and is an excellent physician. We are sad she will be on maternity leave for our next well visit but we look forward to seeing her once she's back.
dr shah is excellent!
she was great and very nice!
Dr.Shah was extremely nice, patient, and thorough.
i loved this provider. I will be switching my children's care to her!
Dr. Shah is fantastic. Both of my children adore her. She treats them with respect and is very sweet without treating them like babies! I also really appreciated the extra effort that Dr. Shah provided with helping me to get an appointment with Endocrinology. She's the best!
Dr Shah is always helpful and spends a lot of timediscussing our concerns and questions. She is a great provider and I am glad my child sees her
Dr. Shaw was very caring. Dr. Shaw demonstrated respect for my daughter. Dr. Shaw explained everything so it was very easy for us to understand.
always outstanding care at this practice
first visit with Dr. Shah, she was so nice and good with my son! thank you!
excellent.. we are happy with the services
I haven't met Dr Shaw since she started at this practice but she was so knowledgeable and helped me with all my questions and was very throughout and informative. she answered all my questions.
I was very happy with the visit. she was very thorough on her explanation s, made sure myself and my daughter understood what she was saying.
We were seen in the walk in sick clinic and were in the waiting room for an hour and a half. they were really busy and I found out later there was only 1 doctor working. despite that, the doctor we saw was so nice, didn't rush us and was very knowledgeable. that was the first time we have seen this doctor and we loved her!
Dr. Shah is absolutely delightful. very easy to talk to and would definitely take both my children to see her.
My daughter is new to this provider and we were very impressed!
Excellent provider who makes parents feel heard, and allows for time for questions pertaining to concerns with care. I have recommended her to many friends, especially ones with middle school aged girls.
This was our first time to this pediatricians office and I couldn't have been more pleased. I thought Dr. Shah spent a good amount of time with us. she was very informative. we will definitely continue to see her!
Dr Shah was excellent. I appreciated that she directed her questions to my daughter and not me. I was also very glad she talked in an age appropriate way to my daughter about her health. The nurse who saw my daughter was also excellent.
Dr. Shah seemed like she cared and did a thorough job. We waited almost an hour after our set appointment time to see her. I took unpaid leave from work to be there so it was disappointing from both a time and monetary perspective.
we love Dr. Shah , she's very attentive, smart and kind ! great doctor !
Dr. Shah was amazing! She was patient, kind and very thorough. She made my daughter feel very comfortable during the appointment.
Dr. Shah is "the best of the best.". Absolutely wonderful! She is always very thorough and clearly communicates with us regarding our children's health. She goes above and beyond.
doctor spent a lot of time, asking questions and examining. also gave recommended treatment plan and follow up visits.
I left there feeling better about concerns I had for my child and the doctor went through everything with me I wanted to know
Dr. Shah was great. She is an excellent addition to the team.
always have a great experience when bringing my daughter to this office.
She was amazing. Went above and beyond to help us.
As of today all is well.
liked dr. shah
This was my first experience with the doctor, and she will be the only one my girls see for well child visits from now on. She was very friendly, knowledgeable and my daughter was very comfortable with her.
Dr Shah has a onderful bedside manner. She is cheerful, knowledgeable, friendly, confident.
communicative and helpful and competent
The doctor was wonderful so nice and kind. very informative and a good listener.
The Doctor was excellent. My son was sick and he still said she was nice and that he liked her.
Very helpful lady. Thanks.
very long wait time for how young my children are. also seemed rushed when dr. came in to see us
Dr. Shah gave us a lot of time and always listened to our comments or questions.
Dr. Shah is amazing. She really listens and cares about me as her patient.
she was good , caring and office got me same day appointment
Provided enough detail during the visit
we have never seen this dr before but she was great with my daughter who is really shy
We have also been happy with the care our son receives at Children's Community Pediatrics in Bethel Park.
The provider was excellent. I will purposefully choose this provider again. The discrepancy between walk in clinic wait time and scheduled time was questionable. However I do feel that seeing a quality provider was worth waiting for. Continue to employ qualified professionals and I will continue to access these services.
she was wonderful. she really explained better eating and exercise habits well to my son and didn't make him feel bad about himself. we loved her!
good experience with dr shah and scheduled our next annual visit with her. very knowledgeable, personable and great with my child.
We met Dr. Shah for the first time at this appointment. She was fantastic. We plan to request her going forward.
This is the first time we have seen this Doctor. She was very pleasant and knowledgable.
this was our first experience with Dr Shah and my kids and I loved her. they are teenage boys so don't like seeing the pediatrician but she spoke to them in an age appropriate way instead of like they were toddlers. she was very thorough and we didn't feel rushed. we really liked her.
It was good experience.
I appreciate having the walk-in hours for sick visits. We were in the exam room within minutes of arriving and the entire process was less than a half hour. very nice doctor and nurses
She was lovely, very nice. I think she needs to work on ending conversations. My daughter would talk to her all day if she could. I imagine she is trying to be friendly, which is great, but it probably also contributes to longer wait times.
Dr Shah took the time to go through my kids medical history and went through all aspects of their health thoroughly. I will request her next time.
Dr Shah was an excellent pediatrician. Very informative and great listener.
