Patient Comments (2)
in Salem, OR |
Dr. Pittman's bedside manner improved greatly after I had let him know how I felt. He even stated hat he needs to remember each patient is different, that some like to know everything at once and others as it gets closer to procedures, etc. I thought this was great in his taking ownership of that. I developed some post-procedural complications which is rare but leave it to me to do it and they were quite concerned and even called me to see how I was doing. I highly recommend Dr. Pittman .

Seems to know what he is talking about. The only slight problem I have is that I wanted to know all information ahead of time and he would not discuss it, said we will talk about that later on. This is the only negative I have as I need to know everything upfront. Other than that, I feel he is a very good physician.
