Cathy Kelly is excellent. she gives best in class medical care to my child. she has been there for us every step of the way since my child's very first appointment. I couldn't imagine going to see anyone else! thank you Cathy for all that you do.
Kathy is very caring and it shows during her visits
Kathy did a great job of helping my son feel more comfortable with the medical equipment. He is still talking about how Miss Kathy let him "blow out" the light and turn his finger pink on the light. So appreciative that she took the time to engage with him in a developmentally appropriate way to allow him to be less scared.
Kathy is very caring, thoughtful and attentive to our family's needs.
The nurse practitioner always treats my child age appropriately and respects both mine and my child's opinion.
Kathleen Kelly provides one of the most positive medical experiences I have ever had in my life. Her attitude and willingness to take the time to explain and discuss all of my concerns makes me feel very reassured. She is one of the best medical providers I have ever seen for care. She has an extremely positive attitude and is very reassuring about the way we're taking care of our child. I feel supported and cared for in a great way and feel she is available with sound advice whenever I have questions.

my experience with Kathy Kelly was honestly amazing. I am a first time mom and when I met with Kathy I was one day discharged from the hospital after an emergency csection and one extra day in the hospital for my baby so that the doctors could keep an eye on her weight gain. Kathy Kelly was the support I needed to turn a breastfeeding corner and she is simply phenomenal, I am so happy she is part of my child's care team.
I absolutely trust Kathleen Kelley. I'm always happy to see her, and she has been such an amazing doctor.
Kathy takes the time to listen and makes the exam fun for our daughter. she provides support and words of encouragement, we enjoy our visits and feel well supported.
provider was not child friendly. Child reported not wanting to see this provider in the future
Both of my children have been patients of Kathy Kelly since they were born. We could not have asked for a better care provider. She has always showed extreme care and concern with them and us. I have always felt confident that my children were getting the best treatment from Kathy and in the few rare times they had to see another care provider in your office.
Kathy is amazing with the kids and I. She never rushes, listen's to what we have to say, explain's things to the kids and i in a way we can understand.
I trust her with all my children.

Me Kelly was excellent. we have seen Dr Butler for years, and truly like him. however, I would have no problem seeing Ms Kelly in the future.

Provider was amazing with my daughter. Very knowledgeable and patient. We were a new patient and probably one of the best doctors my daughter has seen.
Kathy was extremely kind and gentle with my daughter. She took a little extra time to explain to my daughter a few things. I couldn't be happier with care she showed.
Kathy Kelly is very good with my girls. She is a knowledgeable and kind provider and makes the appointments fun for my girls. I have been seeing Kathy since my girls were newborns. I have since moved to Wexford and I drive all that way to the city just to see her ! She is worth it !

great. fantastic wealth of knowledge & easy going. Very respectful of our experience & thoughts.
I've been with CCP Shadyside for almost 14 years. I have 3 kids and Kathleen Kelly has been our care provider throughout. I think that she is phenomenal. We moved 11 years ago when my daughter was 3. I looked for a new pediatrician out here but didn't like any of them as much as Kathy. My drive to their office is over an hour and I'm happy to drive it because I think that she gives my kids the best care.
I just love my daughter doctor she has been seeing her since birth and I just love her she's very attentive to my daughter excellent doctor
Ms. Kathy is Outstanding!
We moved an hour away and still come to see Kathy because we love her so much. She always listens to my concerns, is sweet and patient with my toddler and makes me feel like a confident parent.
Kathy Kelly has always been fantastic dating back to when my kids were babies. I've always felt comfortable seeing her if a doctor wasn't around . she is patient and kind and knowledgable. we are lucky to have her as a resource for when our kids need help.
I love this staff!!
Wonderful attention, time spent and connection to my child. He felt relieved and heard and respected. We couldn't have asked for more.

Kathy is phenomenal.
Nurse Kathy is the best!
We adore Kathy Kelly. We have been going to her with our children for the past 12 years. She is absolutely the best. We drive over an hour to keep her as our children's doctor.

We adore Kathy. She is thorough, accessible, and evidence based. My 4 y/on son never fears going to see her, even when there are shots involved. She can be silly and engaging when needed and very adaptive to my sons mood. A true asset to the practice.
We love seeing Kathy and look forward to check ups! She is always kind to both my daughter and I, is knowledgable about my daughter's history and patient with my questions.
We LOVE Kathy! She is a part of our family, and we always look forward to seeing her!
I appreciate the care givers' offer to help feed and change the diapers of both my two new-born boys. That was very much appreciated!
I sincerely appreciate the care provider offering to help feed my children during the visit. I appreciate the care provider helping change the diapers of my two new-born boys.
I always have a great experience. We live in White Oak which is 40 minutes away on a good day without traffic. I often think to myself I should find someone closer...then I come for a check-up, or I get amazing help for sickness, ER visits, or even questions and I know we will stay here as long as my kids need a pediatrician. I would recommend this place and Kathy Kelly especially to anyone....and often do.
As always, Kathy has been the best physician pertaining to my children making sure they are both physically and mentally well. My experiences with the office and staff has always been welcoming!!
Cathy was excellent and very knowledgeable in every field that my husband and I had questions in. She was very easy to speak with and gave us a chance to ask any questions that we may have had. I felt very comfortable with her as she was providing care for myself and our child.
Thank you for being so sensitive, kind, and patient with my child. He was scared about hurting his eye, and everyone at the office was so good with him.
Kathy Kelly is AWESOME and the staff at CCP centre ave are all AWESOME!!!
we have been seeing the physicians in this office for 16 years. My son called me from school and had extreme pain in his neck. I called the office immediately but they were close for lunch. I went there anyway to see if someone was in the office. The receptionist checked with Kathy Kelley who agreed to see him during her lunch break. She was fantastic and she believed a lot of my concerns. My son was in such bad pain I would have gone to the ER had she not agreed to see him. I am extremely grateful for her willingness to see him and for the excellent care we always receive at this office. Everyone always goes above and beyond.
She was very polite and courteous.
I love Kathy Kelly! I also see her for my daughters needs as well. She is awesome!
Kathy Kelly is the best nurse practitioner, love her. My kids are in the beat hands when seeing her.
she was very thorough. gave good suggestions for treatment.
