Chicago, IL |
Waste of time and money offered no assistance with my issue had to go to another doctor for correct help
Waiting room has been packed each time I saw him with an average wait time close to 2 hours. First time I thought it was a fluke, but it has been like that with each visit. Obviously overbooking is the norm there. Post-operative instructions poor. Had problems over a weekend, called the answering service explaining the problem and thinking I would get a call back. The PA gave instructions to the answering service to give to me. I did not even have a chance to explain anything in detail.

Bedside manner extremely gentle. So glad he was the orthopedist on call in the emergency room . Broke arm and he explained everything he had to do. I never felt rushed asking questions in his office on follow up visits.
in St John, IN |
Had considered having knee replacement with different Doctor and then found Dr. Pitchford. I am TOTALLY satisfied with my new knee. He takes time to talk to you and has great way of explaining everything. Two months after replacement and therapy I am on my own. You need to go to this doctor. Professional.
