    Second time having Dr. Gittins do a procedure on me and would definitely come back. He made me feel very comfortable and was always so nice.

    1) He told me he was going to do an anterior hip replacement but did a standard approach. 2) He was not concerned when I continued not to recover function of my hip even 3 months post surgery. 3) He spoke negatively about other professionals'' concerns when I relayed them to him. 4) He accused me of not doing physical therapy aggressively enough. 5) When I sought a 2nd opinion after 6 months, I was told that the 2 tendons cut during surgery were torn and would have to be surgically repaired.

    I went to Dr. Gittins experiencing excrutiating pain and an inability to walk on my own. My previous surgeon consistently ignored my symptoms and what I was telling him was happening to me. Dr. Gittins identified my problem on my first visit and immediately scheduled my surgery as well as assigning other physicians for additional testing and treatment. In less than two months I am walking and feeling better than I have in years. I can't thank him enough for listening, caring and quality care.
