I would never recommend this Dr. to anyone. I am a nurse myself and take healthcare very seriously. My experience was horrible with her and she did not move very quickly at all when it came to my healthcare. After several Dr’s visits, I went to see my allergist and she diagnosed me with a horrible sinus infection and immediately put me on antibiotics. I have had an elevated heart rate, shortness of breath, light headed, nausea, loss of appetite for weeks. She ordered no blood work on my first visit with her and I had to call back the next day and request. The referrals that she supposedly ordered never called me and I had to call all places myself. This office seems very disorganized and Dr. Kitson’s bedside manner towards me was horrible. I have since found a new Dr. that seems to be on top of her game!

Very knowledgeable. Unfortunately turns out to be unfriendly to patients. Was sick in March and got an appointment in May. At the day of the appointment my wife got sick and I had to take care of her and 2 little kids. Eventually she ended up in emergency room. I called the office to explain why I missed the appointment but instead got termination letter. Was her patient for many years before that.
