17/10/11 5 5 5 5 I love Dr. Szejda and her staff. She is very helful, caring and to the point. The staff makes sure to get you in as soon as possible if you call for any issue with your childs health. She does not push prescription drugs at all and often recommends natural solutions if applicable. They are also always on time and with all of my 3 children I have never had to wait longer than 10 minutes to see the doctor. You feel as though they all truly care for your children and you are not just another number. I would recommend Dr. Szpejda to all my family and friends.  Respond

27/05/11 1 1 1 1 I found her very unprofessional and not willing to help when my daughter was very ill at 8months I had to take her to my doctor and she was amazing was able to put her on antibiotics. I went in once to get her toe looked at because it was slightly dis-formed at birth and she then laughed at me and told me im a worry wart and said go home. I felt disrespected and her receptionist is a joke. She has no manners and obviously should not be working with people.  Respond

02/03/11 5 4 5 5 Dr.Szpejda is a really good doctor because she makes sure the baby is well and if you need her you always go to see her the next day after call in. When you bring in the child to see her because its sick she makes sure she/he is going to be fine. Even the Staff are good the help you out a lot. My son was born 3 week early and I had no pediatrician for him and she was the first doctor i want to go see if they were accepting new patients and they just accepted him so fast and made a day to go in and it was the day after I phoned.  Respond

09/02/11 5 5 5 5 Dr. Szpejda had been our son's doctor since he was only a couple of months old. We desparately were seeking medical help for our son as we did not have a GP. In desperation and knowing Dr. Szpejda from the delivery of our son, I approached her office. At this point,we did not even have a doctor for his vaccinations and were being told that they did not do them as a walk-in service...try the Niagara Region! At her office, I was initially met by Suzanne who eased a first time Mom's month long worries. She would speak to Dr. Szpejda, see if there was enough room in the practice,and call us. The rest is History. The doctor and all the individuals in this office have demonstrated qualities that are nothing less than professional, respectful, compassionate, empathetic, efficient, and knowledgeable. What needed to be done was done and all in the name of our son's health-both physically and emotionally. That is what every parent looks for...the best for their child. Thanks to all of you.  Respond

25/08/10 4 4 1 1 Do not go to this Dr. She tries to make unqualified recommendations outside of her realm of expertise of the medical field. She is ok for medicinal purposes but stay away for everything else.  Respond

23/06/10 5 5 5 5 One of the hardest things about moving from St. Catharines to NJ in 2002 was leaving the comfort that we had with Dr. Szpejda and Suzanne. Dr. Szpejda was wonderful with my kids and was a great listener. "Why do you Brrrring him to me? He's parrrrrrffffect!" haha I like how she trusted the parental instint and how she was not quick to jump to unnecessary antibiotics. I love this doctor...and miss her too! -Julie Souin-  Respond

27/11/08 5 5 5 5 Dr. Szpejda was my dr when I was a child and now she is my daughters, she is AMAZING! Probably the best ped. out there. The rule of healthy kids in the morning and sick ones in the afternoon is something all should follow. I have waited at most two min to get in. Suzanne and Susan are the best as well, nothing but positive experiences here. My wife and I travel from the south end of the region to see her. Dr. Szpejda is always happy and friendly and takes the time to know your family. I was so pleased that my daughter could have the same great dr I did. My other family members switched to her and are nothing but pleased as well!! Dr. Szpejda, Suzanne and Susan, Keep up the AMAZING work, Niagara is lucky to have you. If you are reading this because you are looking for a new ped. for your child - look no more, you would be giving up the best thing ever if you did not call her!  Respond

23/03/07 5 5 5 Dr.Szpejda was my son's doctor since birth (1989). Till the time he was 16 and HAD to leave her, she was the only doctor he allowed to treat him. Even on the day of his last check up, he wanted his treat from Suzanne. He really misses them both. Dr. Szpejda was great with all our concerns. Very knowledgable, thorough and compassionate. We are very fortunate to have a pediatrician like this in our city of St. Catharines.  Respond

22/03/07 3 3 4 Dr. Szepejda is very knowledgeable. My only complaint is that she seems rushed and I feel that she may not spend enough time listening to concerns that I have.  Respond

13/03/07 5 5 5 Monika was great with our kids. She almost had to kick them out of her practice cause they got too old but didn't want to go elsewhere cause they had confidence in her and liked her. She always told them straight up what was going on. She said that when they were taller than her they had to leave. My son towered over her and was quite disappointed when he had to leave her practice as was my daughter when it was her turn. You can't possibly mention Dr. Szpejda without mentioning her secretary Suzanne in the very same breath. Suzanne had the monumental task of trying to accomodate everyone's busy schedule and be nice about it. We miss them both.  Respond

01/03/07 5 5 5 She has been my twins doctor since they were born (they are now 13) she is extremely knowledgeable and is very caring. She also has a sense of humor, which can be very comforting when you are stressed about your child's health. I have recommended several others to her and they are pleased also. When it comes to my children's health, I need to completely trust my pediatrician and I do with her.  Respond
