Dr. Maher is THE BEST! She is caring, knowledgeable, and takes time to listen carefully to our concerns. She is the best pediatrician. Thank You for you wonderful care.
We love Dr.Mary! Every time we see her, she is happy to see our baby girl, always encouraging to us as parents, and answers any questions we have.
The doctor was wonderful. She was patient, soft spoken, kind, handled my wiggly sick 3 year very well, she was very thorough, she listened to everything I had to say, she took the time to hear about my concerns and then addressed those concerns, and explained everything. She asked my thoughts on different treatment options to find the one that she thought would work best for my son. I hope to be able to have my children see her in the future should they need a doctor.
We were very pleased with our visit yesterday. Dr. Maher is great and spent a lot of time with us answering questions and providing care to Liam.
Dr. Maher was great. My daughter was very comfortable with her. She has an amazing bedside manner.
Dr. Maher is amazing and I trust her as my son's PCP
We absolutely love Dr. Maher :) my 15 month old even climbed into her lap and gave her a hug.
Provider was very kind to child and myself at appointment. I was very disappointed that after seeing provider in the late morning, the prescription for what I would have liked to begin treatment as soon as possible was not called in to the pharmacy until the end of the day. The pharmacy had a problem with the formula combination and when they called the office was already closed. Now, more than 24 hours after we were seen my child's prescription still hasn't been filled due to pharmacy waiting for doctor. I find this to be very disappointing and unsatisfactory.
Dr Maher was excellent.
great services! allowed me to stay in the room to feed for as long as I needed!
Dr. Maher is always kind and gentle with my son during our visits. She is very thorough and never makes us feel rushed. She is always open to answering questions and explains her findings as she goes through her examination.
my child was very happy and open with this Dr.
We were walk-ins for possible Strep Throat. This was the first time my child saw Dr. Maher. She was very easy to talk to, kind and patient.
This particular doctor made me feel a bit of mom-shame. I had an eye infection and apparently I passed it on to my son and she acted like I should be a bit ashamed. Not only this, but after I thought about it, I remembered that I had her only one other time and on that occasion she made me feel as if I wasn't doing my job as a mom well as well. Disappointed.
We love Dr. Mahr and have nothing but great experiences in the CCP Bethel Park location.
We love this office as everyone in it is informative, helpful and loving! Doctor Maher is one of our favorites. She's thorough happy and one of the best.
Dr. Maher was great with Mila. She took her time and has been on the the first pediatricians that I felt truly evaluated my child's development by having my child draw, jump, talk, rather than just asking if she did it.
the two providers that we saw for our newborn were fantastic. They answered all questions and showed great care to our baby.
We love Dr. Maher :)
It was our first time at children's community pediatrics. We switched to them in the hopes of getting a doctor for our baby that would be more knowledgeable and caring than what we previously had. Doctor Maher was so kind, compassionate, and she knew everything I asked about or that I voiced concern for. She was super friendly and she gave great input instead of just agreeing with everything I said and what I thought our son needed regarding his medical conditions. She was amazing and I would be happy and lucky to have her as my children's doctor for the entire length of their childhoods!
We had to wait 40 minutes in the exam room before being seen. The doctor was condescending and critical. If I could choose a doctor to see in the future, it would not be this one.
Dr Maher is amazing, patient, knowledgeable and extremely helpful
I thought the provider spent too long on the "Advice" section of the visit, really grilling the boys about their friends, girlfriends, etc. Advising that he should break up with this girlfriend if he doesn't think he is going to marry her. He is only 18 and it is a healthy teenage relationship. Kept saying to listen to your mother. I actually do not like that. I know she meant well but I very much prefer all of the other providers that I have seen at this practice since we moved to Pittsburgh in 2005.
Dr Maher was terrific!! she has the best bedside manner.
It was our first appointment with Dr. Maher and she was very pleasant. It was a general check-up and my daughter is pretty healthy, so i did not have any concerns. However, she also tried to make conversations with non-medical related matters (e.g. which book are you reading) as well as giving thorough medical exam checking her toes and backbone (maybe because she is a DO) and giving some behavioral advise. My daughter and I enjoyed the visit.
This was our first time seeing Dr. Mahar and we were extremely impressed.
It was suggested we switch to a female in the practice since my daughter was reaching puberty. This was our first time seeing the care provider and I really liked her and will be continuing my daughter's care with her.
This was a great visit-last minute on a Friday afternoon everyone at the office treated us well, took the time to appropriately act on a potential appendicitis and got us an ambulance to Children's.
I don't agree that the physicians don't believe in chiropractics. It's disappointing I wasted my time and money with no script for chiropractics to heal my child.
I can not say enough about how happy I am with Dr. Maher. She takes the time to explain everything. she does not rush out of the room. She answers all my questions
The doctor interacted very well with my son, didn't rush him, even let him listen to his own heartbeat which he loved.
she took great care of our little girl!
Dr. Maher is excellent.
Dr. Maher was fantastic!
Dr. Maher was very attentive and nice.
Overall it was a good visit. I felt a bit of annoyance from the doctor when I asked questions about a skin issue. I chose to let it go and we'll visit the derm instead.
Dr. Mahr is so kind and thorough. This was our first no sick visit with her and my daughter will definitely see her again.
Dr. Maher was very good! It was our first time seeing her and she never made us feel rushed. She eased both my daughter and my concerns and prescribed Zantac which is helping settle my daughter's stomach.
This was our first visit to CCP Mcmurray with our newborn and my wife and I love Dr. Maher. She was already up to date on our babies information before coming into the room. We definitely want to see her again for our child's care and would recommend to others.
Good overall visit with medical provider at CCP. Thank you.
I always get an appointment easily and I am able to get advice from a nurse.
Love this office, always super helpful and friendly.
First time with this physician and she was fabulous! Excellent bedside manner.
very friendly and it was a good visit
Dr. Maher listened to our concerns in detail and gave sound medical advice that was easy to understand. She gave us a strong peace of mind with her confidence and excellent medical expertise.
treated me more as a baby than an adult
Doctor and provider office is excellent.
Very quick, friendly, and effective visit during walk-in-hours.
never had seen this doctor before.. we loved her.. very sweet with my daughter and very personal and kind
dr. Maher was wonderful. she was very attentive and my daughter feel better
Dr. Maher is great
Dr. Maher is amazing! She is very thorough and understanding and I love how she speaks directly to my daughter. She is an exceptional doctor and I am so glad that she has hours at our Waterdamn office.
we absolutely loved Dr.Maher. She provided an excellent thorough exam and answered allof our questions. she was informative and also treated my child wonderfully. Great doctor visit
the doctor was wonderful. didn't rush us and answered every question. I reallylike her and so did my son.
Dr. Mahr is always professional and cares for our baby with such gentleness. We really appreciate her guidance and experience.
Dr. Maher was wonderful! She took the time to interact with my child and make her feel comfortable. She did the exam on my daughter's baby doll first to help calm my daughter down. She had great communication with me and was very thorough in explaining everything. I would recommend her in a heartbeat!
Dr Maher is excellent. she is patient and thorough. She is very caring and easy to understand. She was N excellent addition to the practice.
love this facility and all of the providers at this location!
great experience with the front desk staff, nurse/MA and Dr Maher.
Dr Maher was very thorough. I like that she engaged my child and spoke to both of us.
The doctor was very nice and engaged well with our daughter, who was quite shy.
Dr. Maher is more like a good friend and less of a doctor. She is so sweet, very knowledgeable and always willing to listen!
We used the walk in clinic and were seen right away. I was very happy with the doctor's acknowledgement of my son's issue. She listened to my concerns and questions. I did not feel rushed at all. I was happy with the care we received that day.
She walked in with a smile on her face, listened to what we had to say, but offered no suggestions as to diagnosis or treament.
Dr. Maher is incredibly invested in my child's health and well-being. She treated my son like her own and really listened to my concerns.
the doctor was very patient with my daughter. she listened to her and was very compassionate. good with kids
Dr. Maher took her time during our appointment to discuss all my questions as well as earn my daughters trust, allowing a very successful visit. I appreciate her medical advice.
Dr. Maher provided an excellent experience. It was our first visit to this office (we recently moved), and I felt comfortable with her right away. I had only one concern/question about my daughter's health, which she took seriously and gave me a considered answer.
Dr. Maher spoke equally to me and my child, which I appreciated, because at 9 years old he's definitely ready to be part of his own health conversations. She took the time to ask him personal questions instead of only clinical ones (or rather, she made the clinical questions personal, which makes them easier for a child to answer).
