I have been seeing Dr Gitlin since diagnosed with Hep C in 2005. He performed 2 liver biopsies and helped me to make decisions regarding treatment. i have always felt that Dr Gitlin is a leading expert in the field of Hep C. I finished Harvoni four months ago and I am clear of the disease. It also helps that he is a sweet man. I Love his bedside manner. I will miss seeing him since I only have 1 more appointment and I will be released.
