excellent care & attentive to our needs
excellent service - doctor listened to questions and provided treatment options
We are new to the practice having moved from another State.When I called to make an appointment the staff was very accommodating and worked with me to get the earliest appointment and the again when we were at the appointment the staff was cooperative and efficient.Dr Calista himself is knowledgeable and listened to what we had to say respectfully and only after hearing us out gave us his opinion and observations about our child.Will definitely recommend him and his practice to others.
Dr. Clista is very thorough and caring. He called to follow up with us at the end of his day.
This was the first time we met with Dr Clista and were very pleased with him.
my only complaint was when I asked how my child's lungs sound I was told " I can't tell because she was screaming and hopefully her fever is just from her ear infection " that does not make me feel confident walking out of the office that my child is going to be ok. I don't like to complain but what my child has been through everyone else knows her background and takes their time with her . I just want to make sure they are doing what's best for my daughter .
The front office staff is amazing! I've never had so much fun at a doctor's office. They were wonderful with my son, who was very worried about getting shots. They make me look forward to visits.
we always request to see Dr Clista. He is so good with our son and incredibly knowledgeable.
Dr. Clista has consistently provided excellent care.
I love this office! Every person here is friendly and helpful. Every receptionist is super nice and friendly on the phone and in person. Every nurse is friendly and patient with my 4-year-old. Every Dr. Listens to what I have to say or what she has to say, and I really appreciate that. I feel like they really care about my children.
I like that all of the providers we see speak directly to my children, don't act like I'm invisible, and care about our family.
it's always great
great service !
Dr. Clista is an excellent provider. He provides reasonable and flexible recommendations and advice regarding the many other specialties that provide recommendations for Braden. I trust his judgement and he is reasonable so I am likely to follow his recommendations. My children have special needs and have medication reactions as well as food allergies and he helps is to navigate these concerns. We are very fortunate that he provides medical care to my kids.
Dr. Clista is always patient and kind.
our office appointments with Dr Clista and staff are always perfect! My 5 year old doesn't even dread shots because they make it an easy caring experience. We trust and appreciate Dr Clistas care and expertise.
We have been pleased with Dr. Clista's care and the experience we have had at Healthquest Pediatrics overall. My son was born very prematurely, and consequently, he has had some health issues following discharge from the NICU. Dr. Clista and other staff heard my concerns, answered my questions, and helped to promptly solve any issues that came about. We were referred to specialists within UPMC as needed.
We love it here, they are thorough
always takes the time needed and shows compassion and care
Dr. Clista, and the rest of the staff are always very kind and thorough with my children.
We had to switch his PCP because we moved. This was a first visit and he seemed at ease with the various kinds of care my son will need including psychiatric.
the MD told us my daughter had a virus. turns out she had the flu, her boyfriend got it 5 days later with the exact same symptoms, low grade temp and cough, his doctors office swabbed him. it would have been nice to know she had the flu, she likely exposed a lot of people.
Dr. Clista is one of our favorite doctors. He is always attentive and patient and polite.
Dr. Clista is always kind and helpful when we see him.
clista is awesome. receptionists have always been great
took the time to listen to our concerns and offered info to deal w the problem. zero wait time.
We are always thankful to have Dr. Clista's support and concern for our children's health. While our daughter has had a recent diagnosis that gives us concerns for her well being, our visit with Dr. Clista reaffirms our belief that he is an incredible asset to our daughters care team. We feel like we have someone in "in our corner" who will help us navigate her health in the future. Our family is very thankful for his care and support.
my son has special needs. the doctors and staff are always helpful.
outstanding!!! we love Dr. Clista. he is the best.
Highly recommend Health Quest and Dr. Clista
Always like seeing Dr. Clista. He's one of our favorites!
this office is always very friendly! the hours are conducive to a working schedule so it's easy to get my children seen when they need it.
We switched to CCP -- Healthquest a little over a year ago and my family couldn't be happier. The level of service at CCP - Healthquest compared to our previous pediatrician is out of this world. No matter who we see, everyone is beyond kind, supportive, understanding and caring to my children as well as my wife and I. We only wish we would have known about CCP-Healthquest sooner.
we always try to request Dr. Clista. He is a very calm, kind, knowledgeable provider.
he has an excellent knowledge about my child's health
Dr. Clista is wonderful, we drive 30+ minutes to his office because we like and trust him so much
The office staff and doctor delivered good quality care. Thank you.

Absolutley trust and respect Dr Brian Clista and would not take my daughter anywhere else!!
Dr. Clista is extremely patient and understanding. Both parent and child were treated with kindness and respect. All questions answered constructively, providing information without judgement. We are confident our child is receiving appropriate care and attention from this provider.
Really listens to any concerns and gives great answers.
Dr. Clista is outstanding. He took a lot of time with us to hear our concerns, thoroughly diagnose, explain all possibilities. Every experience we have with him is outstanding.
Dr Clista has cared for my child since birth, visiting in hospital when born and I trust and respect him completely and wouldn't want to take my child to anyone else. In addition, the entire staff is caring and geniune and make the stress of a sick child easier! Any time I have called with questions or concerns the staff gets me the help I need! Top notch care!!!
All three of my children see Dr Clista. We love him and all of his staff. I drive from Seven Fields to go to him.
Dr. Clista listened to my concerns and made recommendations based on that concern which were both easy to understand and implement. He is truly an excellent physician.
Dr Calista is always very thorough and thoughtful. He is comforting to my son and has always been very considerate with all my kids. i have extreme confidence in his abilities. All the doctors at Healthquest are capable and intelligent Pediatricians.
Dr Clista is an exceptional provider. He is knowledgeable, patient and kind. I would highly recommend him!
i appreciated that De Clista saw both of my sons despite us accidentally skipping one of the appointments.
Excellent and made the issues/solutions easy to understand.
Dr. Clista is very kind and has a very calm demeanor that helps with kids' anxiety about the visit
