We love Katie. She is one of the best providers we have ever seen.
Katie is always knowledgeable of our family, it's nice to go somewhere, where you're not just another patient, the whole staff is amazing, and they make the visit much easier on me, cause they remember previous visit and everything that has happened just as if it were yesterday that we were there, couldn't ask for a better place to take our children I drive an hour to see them and pass four other offices on my way to there. They're worth the drive. my kids love all of them there.

We love Katie. She has been seeing my children since they were small. She is always caring and considerate and she listens to our concerns and questions.
Katie listened to my concerns about my son's reaction to a spider bite and that he frequently gets cellulitis. I also informed katie thst I kept him home from school the previous day due to a sore throat and low grade fever. Katie reviewed that the prescription she was providing my son with also covers strep throat. when i inquired about getting a prescription for zyrtec due to financial issues she prescribed the zyrtec. she examined my son and was very gentle and reviewed with my son what she was going to do ahead of time.
Always excellent care there. Katelin is our favorite to see, she is always attentive & efficient in her practice.
Katie is always tip notch! We can't think of anything negative to say about her.
Everyone at this office always treats us with respect and always cares the best possible way of my children's needs. I really like the walk in appointments which are quick and are great for after school appointments. I appreciate all the care my kids get from the Children's Community Pediatrics. Thank you for being the best.
we absolutely love Blairsville Pediatrics and recommend them to everyone
The care is always top notch! The staff is awesome!
absolutely love katie and blairsville pediatrics
Katie has always provided me with fantastic, professional care when it comes to all 4 of my children. She has never misdiagnosed, always listens and asks very thorough questions to be sure she is capturing everything. I always hope to see her when I come in during walk in hours.
Great experience! The doctor discussed my son with his regular pediatrician, Dr. Shuhart. It was like getting two good opinions!
Katie is amazing
I really appreciated the time that was taken to answer all my questions about my daughter.
Katie is always very cheerful and caring! I appreciate that greatly!
Katie is always courteous and knows my children well. She always listens to my concerns, I trust her judgement
Katie is the best!
we love her, she is excellent with my kids!
We waited a little longer this time for the visit because I requested that we see Kaitlyn. She is the most attentive and understanding of your doctors (in my opinion). I always request her or Dr. Shuhart. I always have all my questions answered and she takes the time to help my son feel better. She always fully checks and diagnoses him.
Katie is AMAZING. One of the best doctor's we've ever had for the care of our children.
love the staff at blairsville, always get u in, answers questions, so nice, always greeted with a smile
I can't say enough good things about Katie. Katie is an outstanding medical professional with an extensive knowledge base. My son LOVES going to the doctor to see her because he knows "Miss Katie will make him feel better" - and as a result, his current aspiration is to be a pediatrician when he grows up. Katie always takes time to listen to my concerns and questions. It is clear that she is very passionate about her profession. She always sets my mind at ease when discussing whatever game plan necessary for improving my child's health. I am very grateful to have her and Dr. Shuhart looking over my children's health.
my kids love seeing Katie. She makes them feel comfortable and I like that she talks directly to the kids as opposed to asking everything to me as a parent. she's also thorough in her exams and takes time with each patient.
love the staff
Always a great experience at Children's Pediatric.
We love Katie.
she is excellent with my child, he loves seeing her.
we never had a bad experience.
Katelin is always helpful, listens carefully, takes my questions/concerns seriously and remembers my daughters history. I wouldn't go anywhere else. I have recommended her office to new parents in the past, and they have been very pleased as well.
we love Katie!
Dr. Katie has a great rapport with my children. She is very helpful and always has my children's best interest in mind when seeing them.
We love Katie, she's an awesome doctor.
Katie is always awesome. I prefer her or Dr Shuhart to see my children when we are there. They both have gained my trust iver the last several years !!
always a pleasant experience any time I bring my children into Children's community Pediatrics. everyone is friendly, and they really listen to you. the office is always running close on time too, which is fantastic!
We love going to see Katelin!
we love it here. everyone is always nice to us. the staff is amazing people. that's hard to find now a days.
Everyone is exceptional at this office . My children love Kaitlin and team .
my son ended up vomiting all over me, himself, the floor, and the table. naturally I was embarrassed but they did an excellent job cleaning us up and accommodating our needs. I couldn't have asked for a better nurse and doctor.
As always, this pediatrician's office is the BEST! We have been going here for over ten years and would never even consider going elsewhere.
