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!
Not helpful. No follow up on lab results. Won't return calls.... i would not want anyone to feel like i an feeling.

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