outstanding doctor, I wish more were like him!!

August 03, 2016

Dr. Kristo is, hands-down, the best UPMC specialist I've ever seen. He's concerned about my health. He listens and never gives the impression that he's in a hurry. He's very kind. Finally, as someone who is overweight, I rarely find a doctor in your system who doesn't fat shame me. Dr. Kristo never ever says anything rude about my size. The most he's ever said is "would you like to see a nutritionist?" I've had other doctors refuse to treat me. Yell at me. Make me cry. I know when I see Dr. Kristo, he's going to treat me with the same level of care and respect that an average-weight person would receive. And I probably appreciate that more than any other of his wonderful qualities.

Dr. Kristo is a very kind man. I appreciate his care.

July 05, 2016

My doctor was more attentive than usual; I felt that I got to spend more time with him and got to talk to him more about issues that I've been having. I felt that I had a more complete visit than I normally have, so I was very happy.

June 17, 2016

Dr Kristo went out of his way to assist me with obtaining the equipment I needed

June 08, 2016

I especially appreciate the short wait time and the length of time that the doctor spent with me

May 27, 2016

I was very pleased that the Doctor reviewed all my health information and listened to my concerns. A very informative visit and hopefully the next visit will be the same.
