    Dr. Bitan has had made such a positive impact on my quality of life. He put me back together again after a failed cervical fusion by a different doctor and has successfully performed surgeries on my lower lumbar --problems most likely caused by scoliosis. He is a knowledgeable, caring and kind person.

    Dr Bitan performed surgery on my daughter in 2012. He was recommended by a number of people I know. He is NOT knife happy! He is very caring and knowledgeable and makes you feel as if you are his only patient and family of the patient. I have and will continue to recommend him any chance I get.
