Virginia is excellent--she is thorough, knowledgeable, and personable. She takes our concerns seriously and always has a solution. We can't recommend her highly enough.
we love Virginia.
This was our first visit to this office for our newborn and it went very smoothly - Virginia was wonderful and reassuring and so great with our 3 day old! Very happy so far.
Virginia has an outstanding bed side manor. My two and a half year old son had croup & was beyond miserable & Virginia was so patient, caring and sweet. I was nervous about my son's health and she explained everything in a way that put my mind at ease. Jen the medical assistant was amazing as well, she always is! Both were amazing with my son!
Doctor and Nurse are friendly and helpful! Though this is the first time we met the doctor and the nurse.
Virginia always provides excellent service! she is very polite and respectful. It is a pleasure dealing with her.

I was surprised and very grateful this provider filled out our school paperwork while we were at the office and saved me a return trip.
We had an excellent visit. We did not feel rushed, our concerns were heard and we were given clear instructions to address health issues.

We love the entire team at CCP Pgh Peds.
very helpful, reassuring, excellent!
Virginia was amazing. Our younger son had to come to the appointment. When he told her his stuffed monkey was hurt - she used the stethoscope to check him out. Then made him a cast' for his arm.
Virginia was very patient and kind. I had to bring my younger daughter with us to the checkup for my son and the kids were a little feisty. she was very patient. I appreciated that.
We waited slightly over 15 min, as the survey questioned. It was fine with us and the medical assistant kept us updated on the NPs schedule. I don't mind waiting a bit extra when the care we get is so thorough, and she didn't rush through us to get to next appt.
Virginia made this visit. She was wonderful with my son and engaged him in all of her questions. She is just awesome with kids and can put parents at ease.
Virginia was fantastic. She was very pleasant and smiley. she made us feel comfortable from the start. we don't normally see her, but I'm glad I had the opportunity to meet her. she took time with us and answered my daughter's questions. she was very thorough. she's a great addition to the practice!!
Provider was very patient, encouraging and reassuring to my child that the removal staples from his cut was not going to hurt at all.

It was our 1st visit and she was a very pleasant provider. I am glad my child is seeing her!
Virginia was a very good provider. She was knowledgeable and very friendly. She was slightly rushed but it wasn't a big deal since it was just a quick check for drivers exam. I wasn't concerned that she overlooked anything.
we were seen promptly as a walk in, Virginia was kind and made my dr feel comfortable and relaxed. she also explained everything thoroughly and answered all my questions.
We love our care provider and are very pleased with this location as well.
We absolutely LOVE this practice. We've had nothing but great experiences. We recommend them all the time.
We always have good care at CCP Wexford. They are very good with our daughter. The staff is knowledgable and the wait times are reasonable.
we just moved to the area, and I was pleased they made a sick visit appointment even though records were not yet received. Everyone at the office was kind and I experienced excellent customer service and medical care.
We had a great experience with Virginia Hofmann. She was kind & engaging with our daughter. She received excellent medical care and we are very grateful for that.

This was the first time we had met the PA, and she was very friendly and interacted with care and kindness with my daughter.
I was very pleased with the walk in option. We were seen very quickly and on our way home before we knew it! Very pleased with the care we received and pleased with the result of our visit. Quick and efficient. This is such a great option for patients, no missing school required!
Extremely happy with our provider
We just see whomever is available but have seen Virginia the last two times and are beyond satisfied with those visits. She answers all of my questions and I like that she gives explanations for what she's doing and provides options so you don't feel powerless.
The nurse we saw today, Virginia, was much more thorough and attentive than our regular pediatrician. We will choose her again
they took interest
