May 22, 2019

Dr. Sara Otaibi is such a wonderful, happy and nice person. Everytime we visit Children's Hospital of Pittsburgh to see ophthalmology we look forward to seeing her as she listens attentively to our questions and concerns. We really appreciate how much she cares about our twin boy's health. She has always been very polite and gentle every visit we attend.

I really appreciate the knowledge and professionalism of the provider and staff.

The wait for the doctor was 3 hours. the doctor claims she is overbooked and the only doctor working the office. THIS IS A CHILDREN'S HOSPITAL...IT IS UNACCEPTABLE!

I LOVE THIS DR THE ONLY PROBLEM I HAVE IS THAT THEY WAY OVER BOOK THIS DR

March 22, 2019

The only bad comment I have was that my son had to have drops to dilate his pupils and we were told that we would be waiting in the waiting room for 20 minutes. we literally had to wait for an hour and 35 minutes. I have a very hyper 2 year old so that was hard to keep him still plus I had my 4 week old with me. I wouldn't mind waiting but don't tell your patients that you're going to only be waiting 20 minutes. I know you book up super quick but maybe don't book so many patients so the wait time isn't so crazy long.

we alway have a great experience out there the staff is great

March 06, 2019

The wait time was horrible. we had a 12:45 appointment and left at 2:25 without completing the appointment.
