Patient Comments (1)
Anaheim, CA |
I was a patient of Dr. Pitzer's for many years. She has very bad judgement when it comes to women's health. She kept me on estrogen therapy much longer than recommended and did not ask me to taper off. I got breast cancer because of her inability to be safe rather than sorry. My breast cancer was estrogen sensitive.
