Prompt, responsive, professional, helped with a new perspective in the department for our child. We were not upset with our previous provider, just wanted an epileptologist to see our son as his condition is evolving.

May 11, 2017

Everyone from the intake person to the doctor was very professional and courteous.

I have the UTMOST respect for Dr Vasilieb, and her NP, Dr Neft.

August 09, 2016

Actually, the provider doesn't work with my explanation friendly, I felt as she doesn't like to take care from my child or she is angry from something that I don't understand for what?

January 19, 2016

Dr. Vaislieb and Children's Hospital of Pittsburgh has always seen my child as a "whole child", not just specific to her specialty. I appreciate the collaborative effort to find the right medical treatment, as well as their promptness/urgency for him.
