Dr. Chittum saw me on an emergency basis while I was vacationing in CO. He took great care of my sudden loss of vision and has referred me on to a great physician back home Ohio! Will always be greatful to him!

I have been at the hands of this wonderfully blessed man for over 10 years. My vision is still 20/25 (on a good day) thanks to modern medicine, an up-to-date doctor and old time prayers. Dr. Chittum, PLEASE don't ever retire!

Dr Chittum is a gifted/talented surgeon.He performed surgery for a Macular Pucker and also got rid of my galaxy of floaters. I have had floaters 12 - 15 years and a cloudy eye for over 10 years. All the physicians I have talked to said there's nothing that can be done. Dr. Chittum is a super hero to me -- I can see clearly now !!! No Haze Or Dullness. All was done with no pain at all. Thank You, Thank You,Thank You !

Dr. Chittum has cared for my eyes in excess of ten years. Without his expertise, I may have been blind by this time. He is the best of the best.
in Colorado Springs, CO |
Mr. Chitum doesn't like questions, I tried to explain my extreme intolerance to pain, which seemed to fall on deaf ears until I had to insist, having had these procedures before. After that, I had a huge floater, so big, I thought I had gone blind. I called after hours. He came in and yelled, NEVER call after hours!! Unless you are on your knees vomiting/blind! I had to get an injection, he said it shouldn't hurt, and stuck the needle in my eye. And reacted badly when I made a sound.
