Excellent bedside manner. Thorough and compassionate. Made me feel comfortable. No need for surgery at this time which was a blessing. Recognized my pain and treated me effectively. By the time I left his office my greatest fears were calmed. A true professional. Charming man with a great smile. Office staff are kind and pleasant too. Highly recommended.

Doctor Shitut is very kind man he put me at ease at a time where I was very troubled and he also gave me time to make my mind up. Serious he asked me a very good question ask yourself if you can you live with the pain? Yes I would recommend Dr.Shitut. Thanks Debra Beecher

Had a appointment they didn't tell me I needed to bring anything when I get here they tell me I need X-rays and all kinds of stuff very very rude office will not go back
in Bunker Hill, IL |
I had lower back surgery 2 years ago. At that time I had maybe 30% of the strength in my legs. I now have full mobility back and it relieved a majority of the pain. If I was judging his jokes he would not get 5 stars. Bottom line is I am having him operate on my neck this month so that's the highest rating I can give.
in Imperial, MO |
Dr Shittut did back surgery on me 6 years ago in August 2011. I am still without pain and I am thrilled with the outcome. He performed a lamination and that gave me relief. I lived his dry sense of humor and caring when he gave me a cortisone shot. He would always say he was sorry. I highly recommend him. Ann Gay. Imperial Mo

He was very rude to me. He got an attitude about my weight as soon as he walked in the door. Patted me on the belly and told me I needed to lose weight and he would never be my doctor cause I was to fat. I have never had a doctor make me feel the way he did. I'm not skinny. I am 250 pounds and 5'5''. He has no manners and should be ashamed of himself. I'm guessing if he only treats skinny people he must not have very many patients. Very unorganized office. Most of the staff was rude. he's a joke
