My Daughter has been through multiple surgeries from all over. Dr. Dennis Kitsko has by far been the worst bedside manner of all! He had a NURSE call to inform me she had Cancer! It’s a job not a passion and you can clearly tell by his level of concern not to mention zero patient empathy/ compassion. He should not be in pediatrics let alone patient care.
