Not too long ago, a family that was moving away from Morgantown stopped by WVU Medicine Cheat Lake Physicians just to say goodbye to Dr. Taylor Troischt. Their child had been his very first patient there, and both he and the parents remembered that throughout their 13-year relationship.

What does it take to be the BOM Best Pediatric Clinic? “When you get a whole bunch of people who show up in the same place and are dedicated to a common goal, good things happen,” Troischt says. It’s not only the clinic’s five pediatricians and nurse practitioner, he says. “It’s a team effort. We have great people in the patient access area when you check in, great nurses who help kids through every step, and great triage and administrative support.”

WVU Medicine Cheat Lake Physicians offers patients a lot of convenience, Troischt says. He had been working several years at that location already when WVU Medicine bought the existing clinic, “and they really worked with us to help grow it and provide all the supportive services on-site. It’s helpful to have ancillary services like laboratory, x-ray, dietitian services, and a lactation consultant.”

When parents are deciding where to take their kids, Troischt recommends finding a doctor who they feel listens to them and communicates well. “We try to take some time, get to know people, develop a relationship,” he says. “Everyone wins in that scenario.” — PK
