she is very professional, kind and careful towards child and parents
Dr. Kisslinger is just incredible! She is so patient and calm, always taking the extra effort to show our daughter what she is doing so as not to invoke fear of the equipment. A great listener during visits with our daughter. Wonderful with kids. Her calming voice and nature is so appreciative. She has been a blessing for our family since before the baby was even born - helping guide us and answer questions. We recently moved a bit further from CCP, but kept our daughter at CCP and make the drive specifically because of Dr. Kisslinger.
always a good experience
She always listens carefully and answers all questions completely. I feel like she remembers my child every time. I really trust her.
very good bedside manner especially with my 6 month old baby
Dr. Kisslinger has been treating my daughter since she was an infant. AS an infant, my daughter had some medical issues that required surgery. Her issues are now resolved. But for Dr. Kisslinger's close attention to the issues, I suspect that surgery wouldn't have occurred at the ideal time and been problematic throughout her childhood. Even since, Dr. Kisslinger has remained such a terrific pediatrician. She is incredibly attentive and gentle with little kids which goes a LONG WAY. I can't say enough good things about Dr. Kisslinger.
We love Dr. K. She always listens to my concerns and spends time with us. Doesn't feel like she's rushing.
She was great! we normally just see whoever is open and everyone has been great also, but if I would have met her first, I probably would have chosen her every time. I loved her bedside manner work my child and how she made her feel comfortable with everything before she did anything.
Dr. Kisslinger always takes the time to explain everything to me and my daughter. She is knowledgeable and treats everyone (no matter how small) with respect and care.
We are very pleased with our Dr. she always has our daughters best interest in mind.
My assessment of Dr. Kisslinger is that she is an amazing pediatrician. She deals with children's needs (And parent's) seamlessly. I actually hate taking surveys and typically delete them as fast as they enter my inbox, but I am so happy with her services that she deserves my efforts to point out how good she is and how comfortable I am having her take care of my children's health needs.
This was a check up for my daughter and I felt like the doctor listened to and addressed all of my concerns. I also didn't feel like she was trying to rush us out either, it seemed like she took the time to give us her attention. This doctor has a great attitude and really is wonderful at making me feel more comfortable with anything going on with my baby, so I definitely appreciate that!
Dr Kisslinger is really terrific. She's so kind and respectful to little kids. I'm always impressed that she goes out of her way to make sure they understand and are comfortable with each and every thing she checks in the well visits. She's attentive and never appears rushed despite it being pretty clear that this is a very busy practice.
very thorough & kind
This was our 1st visit with her. She was better than I expected. Kind, caring, and gave us her undivided attention. Really listened to myself and my child.
we absolutely LOVE Dr. Kisslinger! she really takes her time to listen and talk, and is very open-minded in her recommendations. It's rare to find a doctor that treats patients as true individuals, and she is simply wonderful!
Dr. Kisslinger has been our child's provider since infancy. At every appointment she never has made us feel rushed even when it's clear the office is very busy. She listens patiently to our questions and more importantly, to our child's questions and comments. She speaks directly to our children with genuine interest. She is encouraging, informative, thoughtful and always considerate of our concerns. She is an exceptional provider and we couldn't be more please with our choice of pediatrician.
this is the best pediatrician visit we've ever had. our previous dr didn't seem to want to hear anything we had to say about our child's health, but this one did and it was an amazing experience.
wonderful care! I am so pleased with the care provided by mt Lebanon ccp
Dr. Kissinger has always been wonderful when my children have seen her over our almost 12 years of going to CCP. I especially appreciated this particular time when she spoke with me by phone re: my daughter's test results.
Victoria Kisslinger was incredible! She carefully explained her thoughts and listened to our concerns.
Dr. Kisslinger is very attentive, informative, knowledgeable, and patient.
I understand they were running behind that day, but we were waiting in room for 20 mins before we were moved to another room and seen by a provider. Dr. Kissinger was excellent and insightful when we saw her.
my experience was How I would want it to be my questions were answered and what I came for was answered as well.
Dr. Kisslinger is the BEST doctor a parent/child could hope for! She listens, takes time and asks all the right questions. We couldn't be happier with her as our doctor.
Dr. K sees us for sick visits and provides the most compassionate care even though she doesn't know us. She speaks slowly, moves around our son smoothly, and really listens to the parents questions so that she can comprehensively answer any questions. She is so trustworthy and we appreciate her!
We love Dr. Kisslinger. She is great with children, is a good listener and provides thoughtful answers to our questions.
Our doctor was extremely patient with us- answered all our million questions for our 1 month old baby and when I left I felt confident in the information we got.
Dr. Kissingler, really takes the time to explain everything and relates information at a level that where my 11 yr. old daughter is included.
The nurse who brought us into the room and the doctor were both very kind and professional.
Dr. K is always so patient, she listens to our questions and answers them respectfully and makes sure we understand her answer.
Dr. K is the very best with our child and we say it every time!
Dr Kissinger is an outstanding, compassionate, knowledgeable physician. she is kind respectful and approachable.

Dr. Kisslinger is the best doctor I have ever had for myself or my kids. She is so thorough and seems to genuinely care about my child, and about the whole health of my child.She takes her time, I have never felt rushed. She carefully listens to questions and never makes me feel silly for asking anything that might concern me. She is truly just THE BEST.
Dr. Kisslinger has been our child's pediatrician from birth. She knows our daughter and listens to her better than any provider she sees. She feels comfortable talking to Dr. Kisslinger about physical and emotional concerns she has. My husband and I know that our kids are in good hands with Dr. Kisslinger.

Dr. Kissinger is a wonderful doctor. She has excellent bedside manner, asks thoughtful and insightful questions and explains what is going on in an easy to understand way. She and her staff and always kind and respectful. I recommend Dr. Kissinger and her office to all of my friends and family.
We waited 51 minutes in the waiting room. We were then sent to a small room with supplies and a supply closet in it, so the nurse could take vitals. After a few mins we were sent to an actual room and within a few minutes the Dr came in. The waiting room wait was ridiculous. My daughters had appointments at 3:00 and 3:30 and we weren't called back till 3:51.
She was thoughtful with her questions and answers. She was genuinely concerned in the interest of my child.
Dr. Kisslinger was wonderful! She really took her time discussing my concerns about my son, and she included him in our conversation. She was so incredibly patient and understanding and really gave some wonderful suggestions!
very good provider
this was our first visit for our newborn and our first child. we loved the visit and felt everything went very well
Dr. Kisslinger is a wonderful physician and treats the kids and parents with very much respect. She is a great professional and caring person.
We love this pediatric office and Dr Kissinger! I am so happy we switched to this practice from our previous medical office! The whole experience for my children from the moment we walk in the door, until we leave is enjoyable. I would recommend this practice to anyone.

Always very helpful and knowledgeable all around at this office!
Excellent office; Always available for questions; Staff seem to be happy and interact well with patients and families; Physicians and NP's caring and do great work
This was a well-child visit for my child and we have routinely met with this provider for visits like this in the past. Previously, the doctor would speak to my daughter alone to ask questions and provide her with time to express concerns privately. During this visit, the doctor seemed very rushed, did not offer the alone time, and left the room on two occasions to take other calls. I don't believe my daughter actually had anything to share with the doctor but I believe the doctor should still offer the service and time despite how busy she may be with other patients.
Dr. Kisslinger was such a great listener and really took the time to understand what concerns I had regarding my son.
Absolutely love Dr. Kisslinger and will continue to go back to her. She has a way of explaining things in a very gentle and supportive manner.
I only wish that she could be my child's provider for life!!
she was so wonderful! made me feel so comfortable and made me feel as if I was her only appointment that day.
Great experience, appointment was handled in a timely manner.
I have been very pleased with her the few times we have interacted. She listens well and asks good follow up questions to make sure she understands concerns and is very thorough.
First time I met Dr. Kisslinger - loved her! Glad I picked her to be my children's PCP.
very happy with Dr Kisslinger so happy with everyone in the office
Dr Kisslinger is by far the best pediatrician a family could ask for.
Dr. Kisslinger has been the pediatrician for my three children for the past 18 years. She is caring, patient and very thorough. She always has time to answer any questions and give explanations. I can't imagine my children having a better pediatrician.
The provider answered very thoroughly the child's questions, and gave good advice and information about those issues that came up. There was, however, no time to talk with the doctor without the child present. This prevented being able to ask questions about his health that I didn't want to say in front of my child. My concerns, therefore, went unanswered, unfortunately.
Dr. Kisslinger is an amazing, caring and wonderful pediatrician.
Dr. Kisslinger us wonderful . She listens to our concerns. She is very kind and so helpful.
Dr Kisslinger is exemplary. She is an exceptionall care provider.
Abdolutely love Dr. Kisslinger, which is why we always go to her for appointments.
Dr. K never seems like she is in a rush (even though I'm sure she is) and spends time with my son and answers all of my questions thoroughly.
Excellent providers and practice as a whole. Have been going to this practice for many years, maybe 18 or so.
this was a mental health visit and Dr. Kisslinger was excellent. very compassionate
Dr. Kisslinger took sufficient time to diagnose my daughter's problem. She was patient with my family as little brother attended the appointment as well. She showed respect for us and listened. She was not presumptuous, but went back to research the appropriate protocol for my daughter's treatment.
The doctor was very nice in treating for my newborn. She made sure she was comfortable and got taken care of properly. She made sure she was completely okay. She also answered all my questions I had. She even let me take my time to stay and finish up all paperwork.
we love dr. kisslinger! she always takes her time, answers questions and makes my girls feel calm.
Doctor was very accurate in her explanations and caring with my child
We love Dr Kisslinger. She always takes time with us and I feel like she really cares about my kids.
I feel that she sometimes minimizes the concerns I have about my child's health.
Dr. Kissinger was thorough and knowledgeable and KIND. She paid extra attention to make sure both my son and I were treated respectfully and had all questions answered. My 8 year old commenented that she talked specifically to him and not just to me. It meant a lot to him.
Dr. Kisslinger is the best doctor because she takes the time to make sure all of my questions are answered. She has the most helpful suggestions when it comes to my childrens' health.
