We moved to the area about 5 months ago. My biggest fear and greatest stress was finding a pediatrician as great as we saw in Virginia. Dr. Yost made the transition to a new pediatrician so easy and relaxing. I didn't think we'd find a better pediatrician, but we have in Dr. Yost! She is gentle, thorough, professional, and understanding. Hands down, the best!
up to date on research and recommendations
Dr. Yost is always very thorough and attentive to our children's needs. We are very grateful for her expertise and genuine manner with our family.
Dr. Yost is wonderfully caring and attentive and thorough. I honestly don't know how she manages to address with kindness and attention everything my child says or I ask about while also getting through all the appointments she has every day. We all trust her completely and are so grateful that our kids are in her care.
Dr. Yost is an excellent doctor. My girls feel very comfortable at their appointments. She takes her time and you ever feel rushed. I trust her completely!
Dr Yost and the entire staff at children's community pediatric are all the best of the best. I am a nurse practitioner myself and could not be more pleased with the care my children receive at CPP and with Dr Yost. she as well as the staff are thorough, caring, and compassionate. I feel taken care of there as if they were caring for their own family members. I cannot say enough good. I am so grateful to have such a caring, thorough, and intelligent pediatrician for my girls.
My daughter suffers with mental health issues. Dr. Yost was incredibly sensitive and encouraging. Her conviction that we could find better help and suggestions were very helpful and appreciated. !
Dr Yost is one of my favorites. I've always been pleased with all the doctors, nurses and receptionists in the office.
I had concerns about the recent headaches my son was having and Dr. Yost took time to ask both him and I questions about the headaches and to give him a thorough neuro exam. I was very happy with our visit.
CCCP is awesome as usual

Dr Yost always gives the best care and listens to the girls in what they have to say.

The physicians are fantastic including Dr. Yost. They are all so kind and patient and really take an interest in the child and their well-being. Their professionalism and knowledge provide reassurance to parents - especially new parents.
A nurse facilitated a hearing test for my 5 year old daughter and did not really take the time to explain what she would expect. she was confused and didn't understand how to participate, so as a result we were given a phone number and told to call. very disappointed in the lack of time spent and overall we felt that the doctor was quick and appeared to be in a hurry to get through the check-up and get out of there. we left with questions unanswered. Overall this experience made us wonder if we made the right decision when switching to CCP.
Everything was fantastic!
Christine Yost is great. She always listens and has sound medical advice.
Dr. Yost has cared for my daughter since she was 3 days old, and she has established a wonderful, trusting relationship with her. I am so glad that my daughter has a doctor she loves and looks to for reliable information about her health (communicated in an age-appropriate manner and with respect for my daughter) as she approaches her teen years.
took time to speak with use in person & via phone several occasions. very thorough & courteous
Dr. Yost has been helping us through my daughters diagnosis and has been very informative, patient and helpful.
Dr. Yost is fantastic!
We love Children's Community Care! From the day my oldest was born (02-09-07)...and we first met Dr. Silverstein, until yesterday with Dr. Yost...you have the most wonderful group of doctors, nurses and staff that we have had the pleasure to meet. I trust and respect these people with my children's lives...and that means everything.
Dr. Yost is a fantastic physician.
Christine Yost is wonderful!
Dr. Yost is a wonderful care provider. I would recommend her to anyone.
CCP Waterdam is a first class office with a very attentive and caring staff. Dr. Yost is very familiar with our family and our daughter's medical history. We are beyond pleased with the services received.
Always very nice and takes time with us. Never had any bad experiences with her.
Dr. Yost is wonderful. she has cared for all my kids since birth and now that they are older I can see the benefits of her careful listening and kindness to them through the years-they love and totally trust her. This is my shyest child and she speaks honestly and openly with Dr. Yost. This is such a gift!
Dr. Yost is always very thorough and makes sure she understands my concerns.
A visit to the doctor with Dr. Yost is always professional and comfortable. She has be a valuable guide in the physical and emotional growth of my child since day one.

Dr. Yost was very patient with me and my children and answered all my questions. I never felt rushed and truly felt like she listened to my concerns with a sense of attentiveness.

Dr. Yost is always a wonderful doctor for my children. She takes the time to answer questions, speak with my kids, and explain things clearly without ever being condescending. I always recommend her.
our care provider did not spend enough time listening to my childs chest. she immediately sent us to the childrens hospital. We waited 3 hours at the hospital to be seen by a doctor only to be told it was a routine virus and nothing could be done. the er doctor did not understand why the pcp thought it was pneumonia.
Dr.Yost was so kind and was aware of what's been going on with my son before she came in!!! it's nice for them to look at chart before entering the room! she goes out of her way to make sure my son is doing ok and she truly cares about her patients!

Dr. Yost was very nice and concerned about my child.
The staff and Dr. Yost were very compassionate and caring.
Dr. Yost is so wonderful. My children love and trust her, and I can see the value in the quality of their relationship as my oldest daughter enters puberty. Dr. Yost has such a great way of explaining the functions and changes of the body for all ages--she is positive and encouraging about everything they are experiencing, from bug bites to wheezing to stomach aches and illnesses. She always makes time to listen to the little (sometimes non-health-related) concerns of my younger children as well as the reasons that we are there, and it is clear to them that she is interested in taking good care of them.
Dr. Yost is always very thoughtful and the perfect mix of cautious and practical.
Dr. Yost is the best doctor we have ever seen.
We drive further to this practice due to the excellent care of Dr. Yost and her colleagues.
We have been seeing Dr. Yost for the last 15-16 years. She has always been very attentive and available for all of our 3 daughters. I recommend her all of the time!
My husband and i can never thank Dr.Yost enough for being so proactive when we took our 4 day old baby girl in for her family eat appoomtment. Her temperature was reading a bit low and she immediately sent us to Children's and was not wasting any time. Thank God she was on her toes that day because she may have saved our little girls life as it's looking like she has meningitis and a few days more without being treated could have had a very different outcome. Thankfully sending us here to children's has caught it early and the drs have started the appropriate course of action! We cannot thank you enough Dr. Yost!!! Thank you. Thank you THANK YOU!
Again, Dr. Yost and her team are very kind and patient. We are very luck to have CCP and Dr. Yost to take care of our children.
Dr. Yost is an amazing physician! She knows my children and always greats them with their nicknames. She takes her time and has an extreme amount of patience, as they ask a ton of questions. We couldn't ask for a better doctor or group to take care of our children.
Very professional, thorough with assessment and friendly.
love the office staff,nurse and all doctors
Dr. Yost was very friendly, knowledgeable and thorough with our visit.
Dr. Yost is excellent!
Love Dr Yost and my girls are very comfortable around her.
Dr.Yost wasn't willing to listen to me and treat my child. I listened to my gut, which following the appointment I took my child straight to the children's emergency room to be treated and receive help.
we absolute love Childrens Community Pediatrics!
Dr. Yost is a very thourough, excellent provider.
Dr. Yost takes the time to listen. I am thankful for the way in which she speaks with my children. She is reassuring, honest, and calming.

As a new stressed out mom, Dr. Yost and the office made this visit so simple. Dr. Yost has many of my questions answered before I even asked them which shows how on top of it she really is. She is so kind and knowledgeable - it is obvious we are in great care. This office came HIGHLY recommended to us by many Pgh moms.
As always a positive experience with the entire staff at Children's Community Pediatrics at Waterdam.
Dr.Yost is a great doctor and all the doctors in the ccp practice are great doctors. I've been with them for almost 18 years and two kids, and my kids love them and the staff is just as great.
Dr. Yost listens and she is patient. One of the best pediatricians I've experienced in my son's life. Highly intelligent and open minded.
although not our normal pediatrician, she was kind and caring and patient.
Our experiences with Dr. Yost and the staff of CCP Waterdam are always exceptional.
Dr. Yost is fabulous. She carved out an appointment time for us when there was no space available this week. She called me ahead of time to discuss our son's symptoms (changes in behavior) the day I called. During the appointment, she listened to everything we had to say and provided exceptional feedback.
My daughter feels very comfortable with Dr Yost as her provider
Dr. Yost is wonderful. She remembers my children's medical history, personalities, and everything, and listens respectfully and carefully to them. She takes the time to answer questions thoroughly and is also very kind. I cannot express how grateful I am for the care she has given all of my children through their lives--my husband and I trust her completely. I am also really glad that my children like and trust her as well, especially as my older kids approach adolescence. I recommend her enthusiastically every time someone asks for the name of a pediatrician!
This was our very first visit with the practice. (New patient/wellness visit appointment) Dr. Yost was absolutely wonderful and very attentive to my concerns and to my daughters past medical history. We discussed milestones between now and our next appointment. This is the kind of care a parent should expect from a pediatrician! I'm still kicking myself, that it took me so long to switch. Overall from start to finish, all staff we interacted with were wonderful.
Dr. Yost's medical expertise is equally matched by her warm bedside manner. She was recommended to us by our daughter's neonatologist, Dr. Laneri, and we have not been disappointed.
Dr. Yost is wonderful! My daughter just turned 10, and I can really see the benefits of Dr. Yost's consistent kindness, attentiveness, and helpfulness through the years. My daughter trusts her and likes her a lot and feels completely comfortable with her, and I am especially grateful for this as she heads toward adolescence.
Dr. Yost was very professional and educational to my child's medical needs. Thank you Dr. Yost for your professionalism!
Dr. Yost was kind, understanding, thoughtful, supportive, and very knowledgeable. She was clear and concise with both my son and me.
I love Dr Yost. we had a serious problem and she took the time to listen to both me and my son and triage us immediately and showed extreme concern. when I called in the nurse was extremely diligent about getting us in to be seen ASAP. although we have a ways to go they were so helpful in getting us started I the right direction.
Dr Yost was thorough and efficient. We received a follow up call from the office the following day, which lets me know she took my concerns seriously and has my child's health in high priority
Dr. Yost is the best doctor I have ever interacted with. She is always attentive and compassionate to my child's needs. She always takes time to answer my questions and explains things in a way easy to understand. Nurses also are top notch and very personable. I am extremely pleased with the care my child receives from Dr. Yost and staff. Keep up the good work!!!
We did have a long wait at today's visit. I think something else was going on with another child there, but our wait was probably 30 minutes between when they did a Streep test and when Dr. Yost finally came in to see us. My daughter was in a lot of pain and was uncomfortable so this wait was really hard for her. Dr. Yost always does a good job with her though and always listens.
We love Dr. Yost. She is very caring and so good with the kids. I always recommend her and all the doctors at this location. I can't say enough good things about them and I have never had a bad experience.
The care received at CCCP Waterdam is always top notch. Dr. Yost is a superb physician.
We had a very good experience with Dr Yost. she was kind, spoke directly to my child and was compassionate about our concerns.
We have been pleased with the entire staff for our infant daughter at all of her appointments. We have seen Dr. Yost the last 3 visits and always feel that she answers our questions and is thorough with her examination of our daughter.
Dr Yost is AMAZING and WONDERFUL! She is a very smart doctor. She actually cares about her patients and spends time with them making sure they get the proper care!!! she has personally called with test results in past!!! you can't find many caring doctors like that anymore!! She sees my other son who has a complex medical history and she manages to keep up with his status and test results!! She's special!
My granddaughter loves Dr.Yost and the office is great too.
I had all three kids in for a walk-in appointment. Dr Yost listened carefully as I explained the entire picture of everyone's symptoms and situation. She was very thorough
