What People Say About Dr. Michael Pittaro, MD

Have been a patient of Dr Pittaro now for 6-7 years after some "very disappointing" visits with a colleague in the same practice, who by the way is no longer there. He is patient, listens, dedicated, extensively educated and an enormously likable physician. My wife most recently became a patient as well after what now seems ( hopefully) a minor incident. I, we, recommend him without any hesitance.

I went to dr pitaro and he made me feel really comfortable and actual listened to my worrys. Then he gave me a list of options i had and put no rush on me ive been to many cardiologists. He is the best i have ever had. My family also sees him and has helped my mom out a great deal. She was on her death bed and now she has her life back. Thanks to dr. Pitaro. And as busy as he is , he still makes sure to listen to you and never trys to rush you off. Thank you dr. Pitaro. Nick vukel .

Dr. Pittaro is my HERO! After six years in and out of hospital , Dr. Pittaro was the ONLY doctor to cure my heart disease for good. I was treated for v-tach and I just want to say it's not fun having that. If it wasn't for Dr. Pittaro , I wouldn't be typing this now. I've been through several doctors and each of them had to tell me something different. One doc even said my gallbladder needed to be removed and other doc said something was wrong in my stomach. Thank you Dr. Pittaro.
