she was excellent with my daughter and explained things very thoroughly
Doctor has always been extremely helpful and caring.
The Doctor is great
very helpful at explaining the problem
She was awesome. Her personality was great. I wish every doctor could be this friendly. She made my daughter feel very comfortable at the visit. I would definitely recommend your office. Thanks.
dr was great
she is one of the best provider's that ever attended to my kids...keep up the good work
Dr. Gheris is the best. Warm, welcoming, always makes the child comfortable. Remembers things about the child- likes, sports, etc., and always draws on them to make the child comfortable.
Dr. Gehris is knowledgeable about all aspects of dermatology. She is so kind and my daughter loves her.
they really take time to check my baby.
It's very good
Everyone was very friendly and helpful and took great care of my son!
Everyone was very pleasant. This was just a routine follow up visit.
Dr was friendly to both us and our son. She was very knowledgeable about tests he had done through our physicians office. She was very quick to. diagnose and come up with a treatment plan that is already helping.
Dr Gehris is an excellent dermatologist. Great, prompt, caring, knowledgeable
excellent care, friendly
care provider did not have the correct current dosage of medication my child was taking and had written the dosage incorrect in her note from our last visit. this made me seriously doubt the care providers ability to appropriately manage my daughters medication
good timing I just didn't appreciate that the appointment was scheduled for dr Gehris but it was her resident who did the whole appointment. dr Gehris was in the room for no more than 3 minutes. we had a diagnosis that wasn't expected and we dealt with it very well but the thing I came in for kinda got pushed to the side which is upsetting. I also didn't like that I couldn't contact the provider after hours which was an issue because I had a lot of questions about the medication.
Dr. Gehris is exceptional. She has reversed an emotionally debilitating problem for my daughter. As a neurosurgeon, I'm terribly impressed by her. She is also very kind and thoughtful.
Excellent physician. Very thorough.
Dr. Gehris and team were wonderful!
Dr. Gehris was at her best, I have no complaints whatsoever.
Love this office...and LOVE Dr. Gehris!
we were impressed with the office set up. The staff worked efficiently and yet were kind and careful with us. We really felt like they knew what they were doing and anticipated our needs very well before we even asked.
she's very nice
very efficient. very pleasant.
The doctor seemed more interested in talking than listening. She somewhat talked down to me.
The overall experience was excellent. The doctor was thorough and patient while explaining a course of action.
the appointment felt very rushed & felt like the doctor didn't really have time to listen to our concerns or answer our questions.
No one else could seem to figure out what my son had going on, as always Childrens Dermotology knew right away and ordered the medicine needed to get him on the right track. I am thankful for Children's dermatology and will always recommend it.
wonderful doctor ! very caring and great bed side manner
Excellent care by the doctor, but we had a long wait. The doctor came in the room almost an hour after our appointment time (although the PA came in to ask questions earlier). Dr Gehrig was very kind and answered all of our questions! I will try to schedule with her in the future!
always good experience with Dr Gehris
We had a fantastic experience with Dr. Gehris. She was very attentive and caring, answered all of our questions and reassured us.
They got us in quickly, and the office staff is always courteous.
Dr. Gehris and her office are phenomenal! This is an extremely well run practice that provides excellent medical care!!
I felt a bit rushed during my son's appointment.
I drove 2 hours to see this provider and they hardly listened to me. in and out in a few minutes and sent the assistant to talk to us about results. I did not drive all that way to not be listened to. she was nice enough, but did not seem like she had time or interest to hear me out about my child.
very nice and. respectful.took time to. explain things and. i was very satisfied with the visit
This provider & practice are high quality specialists
The doctor was very thorough and calmed my fears.
Dr Gerhis really took the time to explain in detail my daughters current condition and symptoms, and established a very effective treatment plan.
I was very appreciative to get this appointment as my child's skin has been a mess and we have tried multiple ways to help him with no results. I did feel like the appointment went very quickly and we only saw the doctor for under 5 minutes. While I appreciate not having to wait long to speak with the doctor, I also feel like I didn't have time to discuss the questions that I had.
they were so quick in the office, they were waiting for us to come out of restroom. It was a very good experience. Everyone was very kind.
she was wonderful! the student doctor was great as well. both very nice and made my daughter feel relaxed.
My child was there for a skin check due to family history of melanoma. I feel it was less than thorough and feel like I should not have had to ask for privacy for my child when each provider examined my child - physician and intern?. My other child of another gender had appointment as well and feel they should be put in different rooms or at least asked to step out. The providers did not object to other child stepping out but it did not seem to be routine practice. My child is almost 15 and values privacy. Also the first person to examine my child did not introduce himself - I assume he was an intern. His bedside manner was poor and rushed. I feel like neither provider explained things thoroughly as we came in for mole check and left with several prescriptions for acne. I didn't have any specific questions but feel like they could have given more information to my child.
we got a same day appt which was awesome! the doctor was great! she wrote instructions for my son that were easy to understand!
This doctor was rude and barely looked at my daughter. During out appointment she said she had 7 other patients waiting and she was clearly just trying to get us out as fast as possible.
Dr. Gehris is fantastic. She listens to parents, and is extremely helpful.
Thank you for the great love and care!
I am a surgical subspecialist. Many colleagues shared with me that Dr. Gehris is the best in her area of expertise. She was absolutely wonderful with my daughter, who has been diagnosed with a new and potentially emotionally debilitating illness. She also allowed me to listen to the office appointment by telephone (as I also do with patient's families) so that I did not have to miss a day's work. She is obviously very bright and knowledgeable, but's she's also charming and kind with children and parents.
very thorough and took her time. she was very friendly and listened to what I had to say as well.
I wish we had this doctor from the very beginning
friendly and informative visit
Dr Gehris is very thorough and knowledgeable and takes time to listen and understand.
very excellent service
She has a very cold bedside manner. I have had 2 interactions with her, with both my sons, with the same dissatisfied reaction to the md
there is none she is great
We had a great experience at this office.
This provider was amazing. She was excellent with my daughter, and listened to what she and I had to say. She adjusted her treatment plan to meet our needs, and was very kind. she explained things in a way my daughter and I could understand. She was also clinically very skilled. I can't thank her enough!
the dr is always on point with my daughter thank you
This was a really positive experience. Dr. Gheris is an intelligent, caring and overall excellent physician. She talked to my daughter and explained her condition in ways that she could understand, and she treated her with respect. I feel very confident in the care my child received. Really outstanding physician.
Doctor seemed knowledgeable, but only spent 2 minutes with a treatment plan. The PA did the intake and diagnosing. Doctor left the room before all my questions could be answered.
we were disappointed in our visit. The doctor was rushing and didn't take time to listen to our concerns.
This was our first visit with the doctor and we had good experience with the Dr. and her staff.
The doctor is always professional and pleasant at all times
Dr was very informative and knew exactly what to do to help us.
It was a great visit
I felt that Dr. Gehris was disinterested in listening to and dismissive of my concerns about my child's situation/condition. It felt like she was in more of a hurry to get to the next thing on her agenda than to spend a few minutes discussing the situation. Thus, it was frustrating and made me determine that we will not be seeing this provider again.
My son and I both absolutely loved Dr. Gerhis! She was super nice and personable and that goes a long way when your child usually does not like Dr.s.
appointment was for 945am. provider didn't see my daughter until 1015am. visit was less than 10 minutes when she did come in
we travel from the south hills to see dr gheris. she is a wonderful provider
Dr. Gheris is the best. Really makes your child at ease w/ appointments that are a difficult subject (acne).
Dr. Gerhis is fantastic!
Dr Gehris is very knowledgeable, her treatment plan is very comprehensive. We're already seeing results.
this was the second appt with this provider for the same ailment. During the first appt we do not feel enough time was spent or tests were done when diagnosing the problem. We were sent home on a guess and given two expensive prescriptions. When we saw that these prescriptions were not working we do not feel staff and doctors were listening to the concerns and we were told to give it more time. we were forced to make another appt so the doctors could see for themselves that the original diagnosis was incorrect. at the second visit more appropriate time was given to the patient and they actually took a sample to get a more scientific diagnosis than a guess.
The doctor only show up for less than 3 mins!!!!!!
The medical team (resident and attending physician) was excellent. They were friendly and polite to both myself and my children. They answered all of questions and made us feel comfortable. Fantastic bedside manner. Highly recommend Dr Robin and her amazing team.
Dr. Gehris was excellent...very down to earth and helpful
Quick, easy appointment.
Dr. Gehris is a great pediatric dermatologist and gives my son excellent care. I would recommend her to other families with children needing dermatologic care.
Dr Gehris was fantastic. My daughter loved her, as well as the resident (sorry, I can't remember her name!) who examined her
Dr Gehris and her entire staff were excellent. They were able to see my child right away even though it was not an emergency situation. She and her resident took the time to speak with us and fully explain my child's condition so that I understood all of the details. The office staff was pleasant and kind and the touchscreen checkin was a breeze. Additionally, the office location was extremely convenient for us as we live so close by and did not need to drive to Wexford as we have done in the past. This was easily the best experience I have had with a medical professional for my child's care. Thank you to Dr Gehris and staff!
I thought the provider was great and to the point.
the entire appointment was great. everyone was nice, polite and informative.
Always a pleasant visit!
so happy that on a school day we were taken to the exam room and seen within 5 minutes of the appt. time. thank you!
My son has been seeing Dr Robin Gheris for several years. Our experience has been nothing but professional.
I love Dr. Gerhis. She is so kind and pleasant with my 10 year old son. He has been a patient of hers for several years, for follow up and monitoring from a surgery as an infant. I would highly recommend her to others.
Good Experience--she was very respectful and efficient.
Dr. Gehris has a great bedside manner. It's challenging to find a good Dr. these days that truly listens and treats a patient with respect. Dr. Gehris is a gem!
Dr. Gheris is an outstanding doctor we are really pleased with her whole care team.
great experience. first time there. in and out of appointment within an hour
had a wonderful experience no problems during our visit
very positive, especially at the front desk with very short notice they rescheduled all the appointments of my 3 kids. they have been extremely helpful and nice
I had a great experience. The GPS took me to shadyside hospital but the staff and provider were all very kind and still seen my son for the visit. It was kind of rushed but rightfully so, no ones fault but my own. I thought the Dr was great!
Very thorough in diagnosis and follow-up regarding my child's visit.
We are very satisfied with the care that we receive.
My child's exam was thorough, and I was able to get him in to the office sooner than I expected.
dr.gehris is very knowledgeable in her field very helpful and friendly
I love that my provider keeps my progress on record & always keeps it up to date.
