Dr. Pitts gave my husband care in the ICU at St. Vincents through Mar/Apr. He was incredibly wonderful - I just felt calm when he'd walk into the room. He was kind, gentle, encouraging but honest - always hopeful. When he'd leave, my husband and I would both feel better. He never gave up hope. Bill passed away May 7. Even then, he came to hug me and talk. Dr. Pitts is representative of every person I encountered in this wonderful facility. The staff loves on people when we need it most.

He is not a good cardiologist. He could never hear my heart condition but thankfully another cardiologist could hear how bad my heart was and I received a heart transplant. Dr Pitts doesn't take anytime with his patients and won't answer their questions. His social worker lied to him about what I said to her on the phone. He had me put in the psych ward for 3 days and quit being my doctor. I had 5 arteries 100% clogged and he told me I was lactose intolerant. He is worthless!!!!!!!!
