Our daughter absolutely adores Dr. Diego! He is the epitome of what a pediatrician should be!

Doctor Chavez is amazing and I wouldn't change doctors or anything about our visits!

November 29, 2017

dr. diego is a very compassionate and honest doctor.

November 22, 2017

dr Diego is wonderful. even though he was unable to give me anything definitive about my sons behavior, I feel that he really listened and thoughtfully considered all of the information provided. I never feel rushed and feel that he is thorough. I also feel during appointments that he genuinely cares about myself and my son.

Dr. Diego has been one if not the top doctors my child has seen and the proof is in the pudding because my child always has tantrums at doctors offices but this time he did not. My mom was also with me and she also was very impressed with the doctors and staff.

June 30, 2017

I am very pleased with the care that my daughter is receiving from this facility. Thanks to Dr.Chaves and his team.

June 16, 2017

Dr Diego takes amazing care of my children and always follows up.

May 23, 2017

Dr. Chaves and all of the staff from beginning to end are wonderful. I would never take my children anywhere else. I can't say thank you enough to Dr Chaves for taking care of my children so well and helping us when we first came to Pittsburgh almost 8 years ago.

The doctor is great at what he does I really appreciate him

Dr. Chaves has been with our daughter since he gave her her very first check-up at birth in Magee Womens Hospital. He is absolutely amazing! If I had to create THE perfect pediatrician, I would just clone him. lol.
