Dr. Pittard has been my doctor for almost 16 years. He is one of the kindest, most knowledgeable doctors I have ever seen. Dr. Pittard takes a ot of time with his patients and listens to all of our concerns. When he is needed by me for anything that might come up, he is quick to respond. Not only is he a wonderful physician, but so are the nursing and office staff.
