Your trust is our top concern.

We strive to keep the reviews trustworthy, honest & fair.

We monitor all reviews to ensure they comply with our guidelines and don’t include personal information, profanity, libel, defamation, harassment, obscenity or fraud.

All reviews are confirmed and audited before publication, and community members have the ability to flag inappropriate content for further review by our team.

Doctors can not pay for good reviews, nor can they pay to have negative reviews removed.

Any reviews that are deemed fraudulent or violate our guidelines will be removed immediately.

At first I thought Dr. Giterman was great, Very personable and easy to talk with. However after a serious misdiagnoses that sent me to the hospital and nursing home for four months I realized that he really does not care. He never bothered to follow up to find out why I disappeared.

He refused to put my father, who is suffering from Lewy Body Dementia on Hospice because Gitterman said “he did not need it” in mid January 2020 and it is now mid February 2020 and he has been on hospice for 2 weeks - despite Gitterman’s medical notes claiming he did not need hospice and only because my father’s neurologist sent the real diagnosis and prognosis and my father was accepted in 3 days. Gitterman misdiagnosed my father for 5 years with Parkinson’s and Alzheimer’s and wrongly medicated him for all those years. He is a disgrace of a doctor and an arrogant man who refuses to look past his own diagnosis and at the facts.

Dr. Giterman is an excellent doctor, one of the best I have had in a decade. He is very knowledgeable, easy to converse with, makes one feel at ease, and has a sense of humor. Esmet Sharobeem, M.D. , who heads the ACP Centers should be grateful and thankful for Dr. Giterman, as well as his nurse practitioner, Barbara. She is a pleasure to speak to, well-informed, thorough and friendly too. I thought she was a Dr. when she examined me, but found out she was a nurse. GOLD STARS FOR BOTH!!
