Dr. Hart is very personable and takes time to answer my questions. He's great with my kids!
the wait time at the Jefferson Hills office, with an appointment, is unacceptable. for a second year in a row, it took over an hour past our scheduled appointment time to be seen. we were put in a room, where we sat, unacknowledged, for 45 minutes past appointment time. if this continues, we will absolutely consider switching providers. it's terrible sad when walk-ins pass you by leaps and bounds.
Dr. Hart was my pediatrician for 21 years. I had my last appointment with him on March 1st due to my age. I appreciate and thank him for my care.
Dr. Hart is wonderful. My kids age range from 13-newborn. He takes care of them all with such patience and a calmness that makes my kids so comfortable. My only complaint lately would be with the waiting room being busy with sick patients. I was there for a newborn weight check and had to have my husband wait in the car with our newborn because there were so many sick kids without masks on. I'm not sure how much of a difference it makes at the Brentwood office having the well area and sick area, but I wish there was some way to keep things separate. It was very concerning being there with a 5 day old.
Dr. Hart is absolutely the best doctor I've ever seen.
Dr Hart was easygoing, attentive, and seemed to genuinely care about our child and the questions/concerns we had. We recently relocated back to the Pittsburgh area, so finding new providers is alwaya daunting. We were thrilled with Dr Hart and are so pleased that he was recommended to us.
We LOVE dr hart, but calling the practice is a nightmare, hold times are insane every time you call, especially if you call to ask a medical question. Insanely high hold times, because of this I dread calling this office.
