Dr. Kristo and I have worked together to come up with a health care plan that works for me and is easy to follow. I couldn't be happier with this level of care.

He answered all of my questions

Dr Kristo is wonderful. He is not just a physician, but a healer in the best sense of that word.

I consider myself intelligent and aware of my own body/feelings/changes. I am "stuck" with this health issue and this gentleman COMPLETELY made me feel safe and secure by commenting something like "we will take care of you" or something to that effect. I teared up, because so many doctors are so quick to move onto the next patient. I did not feel rushed whatsoever, he listened and questioned back/communicated. He knew so much regarding his computer program. I am so thankful I found this number online. I was throroughly instructed on where and how to get bloodwork and xrays taken care of as well the ease of being scheduled for next week. WOW. I look forward to feeling better and know that this group will get the right answers for me. My children and Grandbaby depend on it. Thank you !!

This is my first experience with Dr. Kristo. He was very professional and knowledgeable. He examined my medical history and new information to develop a course of action.

I have continued (and will continue) to recommend Dr. Kristo to others and I am very happy with the help he has provided.

Dr. Kristo is, by far, one of the most thorough and caring doctors I've had the pleasure to meet. He listens to me, makes eye contact, provides excellent feedback, answers questions honestly and completely, and never seems rushed or hurried. He's also kind, which is hard to find these days. And he's entirely committed to improving his patients' health. UPMC is lucky to have him on staff.
