About Me

Care Philosophy

I generally try to complete a full assessment based on a child's history. I try to find the right medicine (or combination of medicines) to help based on this history and knowledge of what works well for a given combination of symptoms. My goal is to find the least amount of medicine necessary to adequately improve the condition while keeping side effects minimized.

What People Say About Dr. Kenneth Pittman, MD

Dr Pittman manages ADHD medications for two of my boys who also have autism. He is attentive, patient, and very knowledgeable. He explains how each medication works in the body, what to look for as for side effects, etc. He also engages the child to talk about their interests. He's not just passing out scripts, he's taking care of the whole child. Highly recommend.

Our son is severely autistic and suffers from the related behavioral problems that accompany children with Autism Spectrum Disorders. We had searched tirelessly for years for effective treatment for our son. We found Dr.Ken Pittman and Agape Youth Behavioral about a year ago. Each and every visit has been helpful to our son. Dr. Pittman is a caring and attentive listener to a concerned parent. His care has resulted in a great improvement in our teenage sons condition. We drive 70 mi. one way

Dr Pittman has been one of my child's doctor for 10 years and my younger child for about 6 years. Couldn't be happier. He is professional and extremely knowledgeable about the best medicine for my children's needs. Definitely recommend

My son has been seeing Dr Pittman about 6 years. He always listens to us about issues we have or concerns we have. He explains things to us and just seems to be on top of what my son needs. I feel like he actually cares for his patients and it shows in how we are treated during our appointment. If you email him through the patient portal he usually replies back quickly. His staff is great and they are always very fast to get to me if I have to leave a message.

He has made a huge difference in my 13 year old grandson's life. He really listens and explains things very clearly. He has done more for my grandson in a few months than the previous Doctor did in years; I would give him 10 stars if I could!
