From the very inviting staff to the exam room, Dr Litvak's clinic makes the patient feel welcome and at ease. Dr Litvak makes eye contact, and got my history by actually listening to everything I had to say, never interrupting, and making sure I finished speaking before moving on. He answered all of my questions and thoroughly explained the surgery he was to perform. The surgery went smoothly at El Camino Hospital in Los Gatos and I found is presence very reassuring. At the follow-up visit, the experience of the initial visit was consistent with what I found on that day. Every staff member exhibits the kindness and compassion that are the hallmarks of this skilled surgeon. If the need for such a procedure ever arises again, I will know where to go.
