What People Say About Dr. Richard Gittinger, MD
Reply
1 appt with Gittinger 9/2017, seeking surgical hip replacement, very arrogant, rude,his secretary nasty. Gittinger gave false information on hip deterioration, (common in fit/active people of any age), screaming that "no one will operate on you unless you see rheumatologist and take osteo "medications before surgeries". My due diligence & research on lethal "medications" that destroy immune system,cause falls & are unnecessary. Holistic bone supplements excellent results-no dangerous effect

I saw Dr Gittinger MD, for the first time on March 20th and he is just excellent. He is kind, thorough, and explains everything very well. I was very impressed with him, and am glad to have found him. He comes highly recommended, is an excellent doctor, and has a great bed side manner.
