I when my son gets Dr. L he has an awesome sense of humor, answers my questions and puts my mind at ease by simply explaining everything needed for my son to get better ASAP!
Doctor was Thorough and helpful and treating the children like his own and made them smile
I feel Dr. Labarbera is a good physician who listens to his patients and gives clear advice. I could not get an appointment with Dr. Labarbera, but was told he would be available during open office hours on a certain date, so I chose this date to come to the office.
He's a wonderful Dr and would highly recommend him
Dr. Labarbra is a excellent doctor. He listens to everything you have to and he don't like you feel like a good for asking questions. He provides you with enough information on what he is doing at your appointment. he also explaines step by step what he is looking doing when checking you child out.

I always have the best experience when we see Dr Lababera, my kids just absolutely love him and trust him. we wouldn't change it for the world
Dr. Labarbara and the nurse were very professional and caring with my child. they made the process of his vaccinations and assessment go very smoothly! excellent bedside manner.
Dr. Labarbra is always very nice and makes my child feel very comfortable at the doctor's office.
Excellent physician. He told me to take my daughter to Childrens for ultrasound and she was diagnosed with hemorrhagic ovarian cyst that was removed that night
he is a great doctor
Dr tony and every other Dr, CRNP,RN,LPN. are the best group around. They are welcoming, professional, and truly listen to you.
he was very caring and attention to my son.
Dr. LaBarbara was more than accommodating and saw us last minute due to us waiting over an hour and a half for my newborns weight check, with another provider. He was also the pediatrician who saw him in the hospital, which he was familiar with his progress notes.
The doctor was very helpful and understanding with any questions I had about my newborn.
We always have great care at this office.
This was a last minute appointment which I appreciated but felt we were rushed through the visit. This provider did not fill out the necessary paperwork completely even after I asked a second time.
Dr. Labarbera is extremely professional. He is approachable and is caring with my child and myself. He listens and has patience. We both think he is the best physician.
Always listens to my concerns and answers my questions and spends a lot of time with my child.
he's great l! exceptional
Dr. LaBarbera listened and was very personable.
Ill be sorry to leave Dr. Labarbra I'm 19
doctor listened very well to concerns and questions and answered thoroughly. great doctor.
We came as walk in. And right after we registered they did come out and put up the 45 minute delay sign. Which I understand isn't anyone's fault. My only issue related to my child's care was the first thing said by the doctor was sore throat? Which wasn't symptom but fever was. and no appetite. So why wasn't my child tested for streptococcus? I mean just to rule it out, since they came in asking if it was a a sore throat. Which is not always the only symptom of strep
We love Dr. Labarbera and all the staff at CCP South Hills Community Pediatrics Jefferson office.
our child care provider is very attentive and listens to our concerns. I feel that he addresses anything we might want or need to know in an extremely thorough manner
Dr. Labarbra always explains things well. He always takes the time needed. I never feel rushed. also, the front staff is great.
Dr. got my daughter checked out quickly and efficiently! He was kind and friendly.
Dr. LaBarbera is one of the BEST doctors I know! He stayed in the office after hours and waited for my sick child to get there to be seen!
Dr. Labarbera always does a wonderful job with my children. He is very friendly with the kids, great with teens, does a thorough examination and answers all questions. He is one of their favorite doctors.
dr LaBarbera was one of the best providers that I have seen!!!
Always excellent care.
I called last week to get an appointment to get on meds before I went back to school. They couldn't get me in until January 4th. I wake up Monday and they had a cancelation and called to see if I wanted it. I was so happy. Now I have time to see how the meds work before I have to go back to college. Dr. Labarbera is the best.
Always polite and professional!
We love Dr Labarbera!!
He was very professional, helpful and focused. Did very well with my daughter who is scared of the doctor. Made the visit easier.
The Dr was kind and friendly.
I am not happy with the Dr. that saw my daughter. My daughter was also not happy with the Dr. I don't feel he took us seriously and we felt like he thought us being there was a waste of his time. The follow help we needed was denied by this Dr. and as a result I no longer want any of my children to be treated by him.
We have been seeing Anthony Labarbara since Tyler was born. We are always pleased with his care. We are not a very worrisome family & Dr. Labarbara's laid back but thorough care is our style.
Dr. Labarbera always exceeds our expectations at our visits to the office. We could not ask for a better doctor for our children.
he took the time to listen and explain and to help ease my mind when another specialist at children's just shrugged us off or didn't get back in a timely manner.dr labarbra went above and beyond my expectations
by far the best provider we see/ have seen in a long time. only provider my son wants to see
The doctor was curt and disrespectful in addressing my concerns for my daughter's symptoms. He is very condescending, and I find him offensive.
nothing but good to say
the doctors finger nails was dirty I feel that was unsanitary my child could have gotten sick or some type of infection this goes against all safety infection code
I think he was great and I would see him again.
We love Dr. Labarbera and he is always very caring and thorough!!
My children always receive the best care at CCP Brentwood office. They are outstanding.
very concerned doctor
Dr. LaBarbara is the best ever! He is so good to my family!
Always have a great visit with this doctor
Dr. Labarbera is fabulous! My son is two and was a bit nervous about his check up and Dr. Labarabera made it fun & playful. It's so nice to work with staff who know how to approach children to make them feel comfortable. He was also kind and respectful to my parenting choices. A lot of my friends have pediatricians who put them down or make them feel guilty & wrong. Dr. Labarbera was far from this! We see all the doctors in the practice but we will definitely be requesting Dr. Labarbera again!
we were a walk in. My daughter was seen by Dr. Hart Fri. Aug. 3 & tested positive for strep with small red dots on the roof of her mouth & a sore throat as her only symptoms. without the 3 small red smooth dots I would not have taken her. Yesterday I took both boys for the same thing but this time not seeing Dr. Hart who we always see. We don't like to see Dr. Labarber but Dr. Hart was by appointment only. no one told us Dr. Hart was on walk in's in the afternoon. it was almost 11 when we were seen anyway I would have waited to see Dr Hart. after the boys quick strep results came back meg he refused to start them on antibiotic. I'm never ever ever a pusher if drugs for my kids! I don't even take Tylenol for a headache but this is totally different! I have had a negative test always 100% of the time come back positive just to be 48hrs behind on curing them with worse symptoms & infecting others while believing they aren't sick. I may not be a physician but I do know my kids very very well & see that the boys have the same exact symptoms as their sister who did test positive just 4 days before. I hate when I'm dismissed as knowing nothing & the need for a positive instant test which is very inaccurate! my kids have the symptoms but aren't being treated which to me is neglect! also exposing others to illness! wrong all the way around!
nothing but good things to say about Dr. Labarbera! we love him and always make sure our appointments are with him.
We are always completely satisfied with Dr. Labarbera!
dr labarbera is outstanding. he is helping us to coordinate and diagnose several health issues and specialists. We are so grateful for his help
Dr. Labarbera has always shown a genuine interest in the care and well-being of my child.
Dr. Labarbara is great. Always happy when he is the doc in the office that day.
We love Dr. Labarbera. He always listens to our concerns and treats us with respect. I always feel like he has an open mind and my children's best interests in mind. We would (and do) recommend him to anyone!
I trust this medical group with the health of my children. 18 years & 4 children, I have had complete trust in this group. Simply grateful for all of the excellent care.
When I raised a concern about a side effect of an antiobiotic, yeast infection, he kind of laughed and told me what to take, but was not professional about it.
I love seeing him. he actually listens to me and my child's father about our concerns. and my daughter just loves him he makes me feel like I'm not over reacting about anything and that I'm doing a good job as mommy.
We like dr. Laura Barber he's very courteous and kind.
he was very attentive and interacted with both of my kids!
very friendly staff and doctor. Very pleased with my visit.
Dr. Tony is excellent.
I've always had positive interaction with anyone in this office
listens very well and was very nice to me and my daughter
Dr. Labarbera is the best. I have been seeing him since my daughter was born almost 20 years ago. I will be sad when I cant take my kids there any more.
Best Dr. Ever!!!!
I and my child love Dr Labarber. my child has problems and is most comfortable with him
very friendly spent adequate time great appointment
Wait time was very short and all staff very friendly and helpful
excellent provider very patient with my questions
We love Dr. LaBarbera and most of the doctors in this practice.
I really appriciate walk in hours. I am so glad this office offers walk ins.
very kind. but didnt seem concerned as to her stomache pain. it was the reason we were there.
Dr. Labarbra is amazing hes funny always takes time with the children. !!!!!!!!!!
very friendly and knowledgeable.
He was not very compassionate or understanding. He actually laughed at my son because he didn't feel he was sick long enough. I also spoke with him about about anxiety issues with my son. He had 0 compassion & scolded him for not speaking much. As he has a stuttering problem, it is the cause of his anxiety & it was not his place to scold anyone. I didn't appreciate it & neither did my son. If either of my children need a walk in service in the future & he is the provider we will go elsewhere. This is also not the first bad experience we've had with him. We almost walked out yesterday but, against my better judgment we stayed.
I have never had an issue at any appointment at CCP. Doctors and Staff are always friendly and helpful.
