Would recommend Dr. Gaus to everyone. She is always respectful and explains everything to my son and me.
The provider was good. Succinct and to the point; however, I felt a little rushed. Thankfully, this is just a routine annual exam, nothing out of the ordinary, so it's okay.
Very knowledgeable and a great listener. Understanding and non-judgemental. She is quick to listen, and makes the most careful, beneficial suggestions.
We are very pleased with our care provider
I am very thankful to have Dr. Gaus caring for my two children. She is a great listener, explains things well, makes my children feel comfortable, and I always feel like she's giving them the best medical care possible. Thank you!
Dr. Gaus is great with both of our daughters! she listens, makes them comfortable and really cares about them. She takes great care of them whether they are sick or well.
Dr. Gaus listened attentively to our concerns about our granddaughter's behavior and emotional development and made recommendations for her to be evaluated by CDU (soonest appt 5 months out) and to start therapy with Therapist that is part of their practice, but wanting a more precise diagnosis to best help her long-term.
Seeing a new provider within the practice is always a little nerve wracking. another great experience with a great doctor. Love everyone in the practice and receptionists! I would recommend them to anyone!
It was our first time meeting this physician and she was kind and performed a good exam on my daughter. She explained everything well! :)
This provider is caring and talk to the point. Explains the overall health and shows the well-being dashboard of my kid like growth etc..
Dr. Gaus has excellent bedside manner and makes us feel at ease and informed about our child.
really helpful and fit me in on a busy schedule!
Dr. Gaus is an amazing provider. She has always listened to our concerns and gone above and beyond expanding her own knowledge to provide the best care for our children. She is always courteous and professional but also extremely friendly and relatable. We just always have such a positive experience with her and I feel that she is truly invested in the well-being of my children. She is the best.
Dr. Gaus provided prompt, professional and exceptional service. Thank
Right off the bat very professional, knowledgeable, and, excellent bedside manner with my child and myself, and made sure all our needs were met (and in a timely manner!) Every staff member we saw was wonderful. Special thanks Robin Gaus!
Excellent visit. great doc. kudos to front desk rep Janice for accommodating this appointment on a very busy day.
Robin Gaus is the best doctor at that facility. she always goes above and beyond to help her patients.
Dr Gaus has seen my other two children. she's always listened to concerns and quick to include me in my children's care plan. great provider. very caring and compassionate
my daughter loves Dr. Gaus. she feels very comfortable with her and trusts her.
Doctor seemed preoccupied. I asked about my child skin ( loss of pigment due previous condition) she didn't give a me much of a response. Doctor talked to my daughter about about her weight. I also have talked to my child about trying to lowering her caloric intake. Dr. could have handled it much better . I asked my daughter if she had any questions before the doctor was done . The DR. intervened and said (Medical question only ) . I was trying to open communication so my daughter would feel comfortable talking in the future about her health .As soon as the doctor walked out my daughter burst into tears and said the Doctor thinks I am fat!
i have been using this office over the past 23 years for all of my children. many faces have changed, and some have changed. This i feel is mostly due to retirement or relocation. it has always been a good experence over the years and have only gotten better. i love the variety of doctors and assistance however the quality of care is always top notch.
warm, great bedside manner, intelligent
We were happy with Dr. Gaus; however, when talking about potential malignancy regarding a minor child, I feel that is best done with the parent and then with the child. Perhaps even after the workup is complete. She was extremely thorough and patient with us!
showed compassion for my son and answered all of my questions
Dr Gaus was wonderful. She made the visit quick and informative.
Dr. Gaus is wonderful. She is very caring and my son feels very comfortable with her.
Dr. Gaus is patient and kind, my boys like being seen by her and she is very knowledgeable and answers all my questions.
Dr. Gaus has been a wonderful pediatrician for my kids - patient, kind, knowledgeable, and thorough.
She's an exceptional provider.
I have already emailed regarding my experience at the office.
she answered all my questions with no judgment.
My child's health was very critical the time he started being followed by this care provider but the latter put her total effort to help my child out to be who is today. It's incredible if you see how my child is improving day by day especially because of the care he received from his care provider and the rest of the UPMC team. aI would like to recommend to any parent to take his/her child to this care provider of he/she fills that the child needs more close attention. If not, please let her take care of the kids of the most need otherwise it's misuse her or make her useless. She is able to lift up a child from critical situation to enjoyable life. I thank her for her devotion to serve the world.
I wish I speak out so every parent takes his/her kid to this care provider. She masters everything for my boy and pays attention to my sensful or nonsense statements I make during the visit. She demonstrates a high level of patience and politeness. She gives constructive advices and seems to have clue to everything. This gives me as a parent the confidence that my kid is in good hands. My kid turned 2 very recently but this provider had him few days after he came home after a long stay in NICU. It was a scary situation but this provider tried to comfort me every moment I met or called her. She didn't hesitate to try everything she thought it could be save my kid's life and she did it! She did contribute extravagantly to my kid's life today. He should not survive at this time if the efforts made by the UPMC care providets were lacking. But, everyone else did intervene based on this Provider's good, right, true and careful recommendations/comments. Only Almight God bless her and her family in entirety.
This was our first time using walk in hours for a sports physical. We were seen quickly and treated with respect
it was good experience to visit child's care
Both of my daughters feel comfortable discussing their health with Dr. Gaus, which I appreciate given the ages of my daughters 12 and 15.). She is a great listener, and cares about their health!
I like Dr. Gaus very much. She is knowledgeable, communicates things clearly, listens well, and makes very reasonable suggestions when I discuss a medical issue with her.
Excellent experience with this Doctor. Will request in the future.
Excellent care, excellent doctor.
Dr. Gaus has been so caring and nice to our little guy at each appointment we have seen her at. she has never made me feel inferior for the way that I parent or the choices I make for my son. she gives her recommendation and makes me feel so comfortable discussing his health.
she was gentle
doctor was very informative
she was wonderful! One of the best doctors currently at the practice and I would like to see her again
Dr. Gaus was very educational to all my son's medical needs.
Staff are always friendly and understanding. Dr. Gaus had a good rapport with my daughter and was very informative and thorough.
Dr. Robin M. Gaus was paying attention to all our queries and giving the appropriate responses including very insightful explanations and advices. She is very predictive/preventive, she wants to make sure that there is nothing wrong behind every scary situation. She demonstrates an empathy which in turn gives peace of mind that the child is in the right hands. You can't tell everything about her, but she's an outstanding Doctor.
Robin is a wonderful doctor
Dr. Gaus is always friendly and focused. She takes her time with us and we trust her judgment.
We are grateful for all of your team's help!!
I would highly recommend dr snyder for any kind of appt. and i would wait for her til i could see her.she takes the time to get to know you and your child on a personal basis.
Dr. Snyder always gives us her full attention and focus during our appointments. She never makes us feel rushed. She speaks to my daughter on her level so she can understand.
I appreciated that Dr. Snyder elicited a careful medical history directly from my 15-year old, who is perfectly capable of providing information, rather than bypassing him to address questions to me. She also explained her medical decision-making in a way that both I and my son could understand.
Great experience great overall!
The appointment was at 10:30 am and we did not see the doctor until 11:40. This was the longest wait we have ever had at this office, but frustrating nonetheless.
Robin Snyder is an excellent PCP
This was the first time my spouse and I left an appointment feeling slightly 'judged' by our doctor. Her tone with us regarding certain matters that we wanted to discuss made us feel as though she were 'scolding' us, in a sense...or as if we were somehow slightly inadequate. I've never experienced this before and certainly hope I don't with any other doctors at this practice.
Dr. Snyder patiently answered my questions. As a mother of a newborn, I had many! This doctor was thorough and very personable -- I really enjoyed our visit.
