Cape Coral, FL |
I've been a patient of Dr. Gitu for close to 4 years now and I am so glad I have found him and his whole practice. Everybody there is pleasant and the doctor is very informative, The thing that impressed me the most is that we had a conversation once and two years later he asked me how that particular situation was going, that shows he cares :)

Dr. Gitu has wonderful bedside disposition and my experience with my first meeting him in intensive care unit was love at first sight because of not only his proficiency, approach and demeanor, however, he reminds me so greatly of my beloved, Dr. Ben Carson????
