the wait time was terrible. my daughters appointment was at 2pm and I did not leave the office close to 5:30. I have never had this happen before and hope you can adjust appointments so it doesn't happen again. I had to wait for a month to just get this appointment.

The provider was excellent. It was a very busy day and the office was running very behind schedule. Despite this, she was patient and kind during the visit and did not make us feel rushed. The clinic staff was clearly working hard to ensure that the families who were waiting were comfortable. They provided drinks and snacks and checked on us several times. The optical shop also stayed open past their usual hours to accommodate us which was very much appreciated.

She is excellent and super nice. I don't find any doctor like her being so patient and sweet. Too bad she is moving away from Pittsburgh so we will need to find another doctor.
