I've had Dr Gittzus as my primary care physician for more than a decade. He's up to date, listens well, fixes what he can and is not shy about sending me to a specialist when he thinks I may have something that he's unable to deal with. He's timely with appointments, but I've never felt rushed. My family has had some bad experiences with doctors, but Jim is one that I trust.

Told me to "stop thinking about it and get your mind off of it" when I explained symptoms. Very old school and shows no signs of caring. Ran multiple tests and never called me with results. Had to call multiple times to get a hold of them. Also, ran many unnecessary tests, that I did not ask for and was not told about, that were billed to almost the exact amount of my deductible. Strong feeling that he's in it to collect on the insurance money, needs to retire.
