Dr. Pittinger is an excellent psychiatrist. She is knowledgeable and compassionate. She carefully listens to my concerns and answers all my questions. She adjusts my medications as necessary and follows up to make sure they're working. I strongly recommend her.

Took me in even when she technically wasn't accepting new patients. She is wonderful as a psychiatrist as she always makes sure to ask me what is going on, what I need, and she listens with no judgement. I highly recommend her and value my time with her as her patient.
