Dr. Pitman gave me a pretty thorough consultation. Listened to everything I needed to say, asked me questions, and followedup with a diagnostic roadmap and clear answers for if/then scenarios. Great doc! And the administrative and nursing staff were lovely too. I never felt like I was being pushed through a standard conveyor belt, as consultations can so often feel.

Dr. Pitman took the time to listen to my symptoms he asked many questions and actually listen to.my concerns. He provided feedback as well as an explanation of what tests or methods would be used to rule out or confirm whatmy issue may be. Dr. Pitman did not talk down or jump to any diagnosis or provide medication for any catch all diagnosis. I felt comfortable and at ease and well informed. I look forward towards a journey that will lead to answers. Thank you Dr. Pitman as well as to the wonderful and helpful staff.

Dr. Pitman was patient, knowledgeable, warm, and able to explain the various possible causes of my medical condition in clear, concise language. He spent a lot of time with me and it was incredibly refreshing not to feel rushed because ofa backup. The office staff was friendly and the wait time was minimal (perhaps because I came for my appointment mid-day, but still, I was in and out in no time). I would definitely recommend Dr. Pitman and this practice to anyone.
