What Our Patients Say

Staff is very friendly and helpful. The Doctor is very friendly and personable. The staff explains everything very well. The communication from setting up the appointment to actually attending the appointment was smooth and well done. The handouts are very good and organized. I knew up front what my co pay was. The environment was very clean and nicely decorated. The only negative is I could have benefited from some better directions on how to get there and parking, landmarks, ect.

Dr. Gitter and staff Thank you for showing kindness and compassion! From the scheduling of every appointment, to the extra safety measure your staff takes to ensure each patients safety. Taking time to answer any questions a patient has and making sure that patient understands the treatment process. You and assistant eased all fears I had during the process. Thank you all for caring!
