Dr. Chitakki has been my doctor for 20 years. I enjoy coming to my appointments because she makes me feel comfortable and puts my mind at ease when talking about any health concerns. She has a friendly manner and her staff is very likable. I couldn’t imagine anyone else as my primary care physician.

I am so sad to be writing this review as I had high hopes for this office, but I feel like I just got robbed. I was charged $241 to go over routine blood work from a physical. I went in May for an initial visit and a physical and everything seemed wonderful. When my blood work came back, the office called me at 9:00 asking me if I would come in to discuss the results. I was free that morning and made it in 30 minutes later for the 9:30 appointment they had. Dr. Chitakki let me know that my cholesterol levels were high and that I should cut back on eating read meat (I am a vegetarian) and to come back for more blood work in 3 months. 2 weeks later comes the bill for $241. I am not sure how something that a) could have been discussed over the phone and b) literally took 10 minutes of her time could cost this much. When I called to discuss the bill with confusion on how I could be charged so much for a consultation where I literally got no new information (and didn't even ask for the

Dr. Chitakki is punctual, thorough, and kind. She has been my doctor for over 30 years. She adds a personal touch to each visit. Most doctors don't ask you how you feel or have any general concern but she does! She only prescribes medicine when absolutely necessary.

Dr. Chitakki has been my doctor for about 10 years. Even though I have moved quite a distance from the Laurel area, I still have Dr. Chitakki as my primary care. She takes the time with me to discuss any issues I might have. Her staff, Monica in particular, has always extended herself to me. Dr. Chitakki has generously provided me with medication when I could not afford the required dosage. She wanted to ensure that my progress was never compromised. I appreciate all that she has done for me.

I have been a patient of Dr. Chitakki for the past six years and she never disappoints. She is professional , caring, thorough in her examinations and explanations, goes above and beyond to render care to her patients, and sees her patients on time. As a matter of fact, I never get a chance to read any of the magazines because I am seen on time. Dr. Chitakki is absolutely the best family physician!

I've been with Dr. Chitakki for 16 years. When she was at her previous location she made sure that the time she spent with you was personable. Even though she was under strick time constrains. Once she took the courageous leap to private practice the personalized quality of care increased 100 fold. Her front office staff is just as friendly and wonderful as her. I've have never had to wait longer than 10 minutes to be seen. All 4 of my children adore her and my husband thinks she is awesome.
