Every time that we go to the Children's North facility, we always have a great experience starting at the receptionist's desk all the way to the doctor and exiting the building. Everyone is courteous and pleasant.

We absolutely love Dr. Kitsko. He has taken the time with our son over the last 5 years. He has always looked out for our son's long term best interest and not in just the short term. We know that his hearing will never get better but Dr. Kitsko has always looked out for him. He looks at the trends that have happened over the last five years to make sure we are making informed decisions.

Dr. Kitsko & his staff are always kind, couteous, & caring. He's performed two surgeries on our son & we could not think any more highly of of professionalism, bedside manner, & concern for our child's best interest. UPMC Children's is a wonderful hospital & we appreciate all the staff has done to make our son's difficult health times less painful.

Dr Kitsko is kind, no nonsense and reassuring which is a quality I appreciate in medical professionals for my children. I feel he spoke to me in a way I could relate to and has the best interest of my child in mind at all times. I am completely in agreement with his recommendation for my child to have ear tube surgery but feel he would have been receptive if I had any reservations about this treatment. I would absolutely recommend him to any friends or family that need pediatric ent specialty care.

My son struggles with anxiety and some panic attacks at the age of 9 and the doctor and staff made this visit great for him. I am very grateful for their kindness.

we usually see Dr. Simon. he was unable to see us because of family emergency. Dr. Kitsko saw my daughter. He answered all my questions. He also put my daughter at ease because she was worried about a scope. he had a wonderful rapport with her! We appreciate it . Also our nurse was fantastic!
