Your trust is our top concern.

We strive to keep the reviews trustworthy, honest & fair.

We monitor all reviews to ensure they comply with our guidelines and don’t include personal information, profanity, libel, defamation, harassment, obscenity or fraud.

All reviews are confirmed and audited before publication, and community members have the ability to flag inappropriate content for further review by our team.

Doctors can not pay for good reviews, nor can they pay to have negative reviews removed.

Any reviews that are deemed fraudulent or violate our guidelines will be removed immediately.

I had my first visit recently by phone due to the COVID19 outbreak. Dr. Pittinger listened to my lengthy "autobiography" and she seemed generally interested in me as a person. She was empathetic, knowledgeable and I believe she understands my issues. I'm looking forward to a long relationship with this very competent doctor.

I had heard so many positive comments regarding Dr. Pittinger. After a year of searching for a qualified doctor, she accepted me as her patient. I have seen other doctors in the area and she is incomparable! She is professional with her patients and included me the decision making process regarding my treatment. I felt very comfortable discussing personal issues with her and she was extremely thorough during our discussion. One of Akron's top doctors!

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.
