Pittman was always in a rush and always late. He asked me to sit on the other side of room when meeting me, due to a cough, and pushed sleep study and snoring -c pack. I do not snore, I told him as much. I want a doctor that is not so blatant in regard for them-self only. They did not care about me. Pittman gave me asthma inhalers and expensive copd medicines. He was always rushing between rooms and spent no time explaining why to use these. I did not have asthma

Dr. Pitman is an incredible physician. I have been unfer his care for 2 years after seeing other pulmonologists. Dr. Pitman is a fantastic diagnostician. He is VERY thorough in his exams. In addition to being a wonderful doctor, I find him kind and easy to talk to. I would HIGHLY recommend Dr.Pitman. I love him!! His nurse, Stephanie, is terrific as well. What a team!

Unbelievable lack of integrity. I relocated to Philadelphia and contacted Dr. Pitman's office to request an appointment as a new patient. I explained to Dr. Pitman's office that I have COPD and my prescription was running out and I needed a refill. I requested an appointment but the office said they needed to review my info with Dr. Pitman and would call me back regarding an appointment. This was three weeks ago, and no call back. The office has no professional integrity whatsoever. Avoid or die

Dr. Pitman is a caring, insightful , talented physician who takes the time to carefully analyze his patient's issues and convey to them his findings and recommendations. He always makes an extra effort to discuss in detail all medical findings and his suggestions are always extremely helpful. His combination of expertise and genuine concern are rare and deeply appreciated. His assistant , Stephanie, is skilled, upbeat, and goes "the extra" mile to help patients any way she can. A real asset!

I have know Dr. Pitman both professionally and as a patient for many years. When I was in need of a Pulmonary Physician there was no question in my mind who I wanted. I have been under his care since 2004. He has always treated me like I was his only patient. In addition to being an excellent physician, he is empathetic, caring and compassionate. A "gentle lion". I feel I could call him at any time with any concerns and know no matter how busy he might be I would hear from him.

DR. PITMAN AND HIS STAFF WERE FANTASTIC. I'VE EXPERIENCED ONGOING BRONCHIAL ISSUES FOR THE LAST FEW YEARS, AND HAVE SEEN OTHER DOCTORS WHO DID NOT FIND THE CAUSE OF MY PROBLEM. WITH MANY QUESTIONS AND A THOROUGH EXAMINATION, DR. PITMAN FOUND MY PROBLEM! HE EXPLAINED THE CAUSE, AND HOW TO TREAT IT, WITH A HANDWRITTEN BREAKDOWN ON WHAT MEDICATION TO TAKE WHEN CERTAIN SYMPTOMS AROSE. I CAN CERTAINLY SEE WHY HE IS ALWAYS ON THE DOCTOR 'BEST OF' LISTS.

leaving my primary doctor I had a CAT scan and they found nodules so I went to go see Dr Pitman he reassured me that everything will be OK and took Time and explained what did nodule is and where it is in the chest I feel. When I left the office I felt very educated and will return to see him in six months with the follow up. I feel is though I was back in my 20s with an old fashion doctor
