Patient Comments (2)
in Saint James, NY |
Dr. Litman recently performed my tonsillectomy and I couldn't be happier. He was friendly, professional and genuinely seemed to care (as did the entire staff at ENT & Allergy).
Port Jeff, ny |
My daughter got major electrical shocks during an electro orderly, because a grounding wire was not placed properly on her arm. Dr Litman appeared panicked! I have yet to receive a call to check up on my daughter, and it has been 8 months! I had used this practice for years. We will never return!
