Patient Comments (9)
in Deerfield Beach, FL |
He performed surgery on my wrist and thumb and returned them to normal function. He was easy to work with in scheduling my surgery. I highly recommend him.
in Ormond Beach, FL |
Dr. Litts really screwed up my wrist. 2 surgeries and an excessive amount of pain. Just had a lawyer pull my records from his office. Turns out that on day 1 he had diagnosed my scaphoid tendon as being broken. Never told me about it or did anything to fix it. I just had to have a 3rd surgery on the same wrist due to his lack of follow thru. This time I had to have 3 bones removed from the same wrist because the broken tendon allowed these 3 bones to become ground up and infected. To late to sue

My experience with Dr. Litts was challenging. He had no bedside manner. After surgery unfortunately I got an infection. The doctor blamed me. I was told if it did not heal he would have to cut my arm off. One more thing, He wanted me to go to a nursing home after surgery. I was at a top rated hospital, Cleveland Clinic. I would also rate my care as poor.
in Florence, SC |
I just had carpel tunnel and trigger finger surgery last week with nearly 100 percent improvement on my right hand and I'm having my left hand done next week. I am extremely pleased with the results of my surgery!
in Lamar, SC |
Dr Litts operated on my wrist and I have done very well. He was very professional and a great doctor
in Boca Raton, FL |
Saw him for less than 10 min. He did not touch me or use any tools, he said I had Carpel Tunnel, needed an EMG & surgery. He did not address my arthritis. I went to second opinion and this Dr spent 45 min, examined each finger with tools, asked many questions and did xrays. New Dr.said the last resort was surgery & suggested night braces, I am now painless, no meds Reported to Cleveland Clinic and they did not return calls and did nothing!

This doctor should not be a doctor. He refused to give me any care whatsoever after taking my money. I ended up with cellulitis because of dr. Litts refusal to prescribe an antibiotic after losing my finger.
in Miami florida |
Not good. He was never informative. i was in and out of his clinic within 2-3 minutes. As one patient commented. I felt rush. I will never rccommend him
in Pembroke PInes, FL |
Had growth removed from finger joint by another hand surgeon 3 years ago and was warned it might return. Grew back to size of pea - New insurance - couldnt return - so went to Dr.Litts... who could not have cared less - spent less than 5 minutes (if that) - dismissed my concerns entirely - basically told me to forget about it and get used to it. Has continued to grow, gets red/tender/painful now. Wouldnt recommend him to trim a dog's nails! Glad he's leaving Cleveland Clinic - good riddance!
