Staff is very rude and unorganized. Get put on hold and no one picks up. Then to call back they place you back on hold. When you are in the office they just speak about their personal lives and forget that patients are there for a problem. The staff doesn't care about the patient.

I am very comfortable with Dr. Lit. She always takes her time with appointments, answers all my questions so that I understand and is very honest about my situation. I have needed a lot of not-so-nice tests over the years that I have been there, and she has always been very gentle, takes her time and keeps checking with me to make sure I am ok during the process. She personally calls me with results as soon as she gets them. I wish more doctors were like her!

Very condescending. Treated my sister in law like trash when she asked a simple question. Too stuck on herself to provide good care.
