Dr. Kittridge is obviously an expert in assessing student sports related injuries. We’ve had reason to visit him twice and can’t speak highly enough of his professionalism and expertise. Would absolutely recommend his care to any.

Dr. Kittredge is an excellent doctor with a fine bedside manner. I have seen him for my knee which resulted in a very successful surgery. I've also seen him for my elbow which he explained was merely tendonitis and would improve over time without the need for any surgery or intrusive procedure. I wish there were more doctors with the skill, courtesy and ethics of Dr. Kittredge.

Always offers treatment options, but doesn’t kid about pain disappearing like magic.

Seemed nice, although very brief visit. Appreciate him being candid that what I need for diagnostics wouldn’t be yet covered by my insurance, but I didn’t come away with any better understanding of my injury or what to do about it other than take anti-inflammatories and wait another month; and not confident that he was actually attentive to other concerns. Maybe he just wasn’t the right doctor for my shoulder injury.

It’s frustrating to read all of the great reviews. Unfortunately my experience has not been the same. I’ve had two appointments and my total face to face time with Dr. Kittredge is about 5 minutes. He was in/out of the room so quickly, I didn’t have time to really take in what was said or ask follow up questions. Back to the drawing board for me because I won’t be rescheduling with him.

My appointment with Dr Kittridge was excellent. I came to him for pain in my shoulder due to injury. He carefully explained to me what was going on and discussed the treatment options. He provided treatment to alleviate my shoulder pain during the visit. I am beginning Physical therapy to improve my shoulder and will follow up with Dr Kittridge on my progress. I am pleased to know my condition and am on the path to improvement.

Great doctor! Listens carefully, explains thoroughly, and was proactive in advising me to have physiotherapy several times a week for a torn miniscus (reccommending excellent ones) and advising me on new gym shoes. I'm on my way to recovery for the first time in three months! Also advised that orthroscopic surgery would not necessarily give me the outcome I wanted due to arthritis in my knee. I will not hesitate to go to him for any other orthopedic needs I may have
