Spring Valley, NY |
After 5 years I finally found a doctor who actually listened to what I was saying. Dr. Pittman discussed my symptoms and after testing, my diagnosis. He was able to help alleviate most of my pain and help me unde3rstand what was happening. How nice not to be told it was all in my head.

Paramus, NJ |
I didn't think he gives a thorough office visit I believe he should do a abdominal exam. When see a new patient.
in Ringwood, NJ |
Very patient, didn't rush me and answered all my questions.
in Paramus, NJ |
I just had my second appointment with Dr. Pittman after 40 years with one of his colleagues. Dr. Pittman is engaging and easy to talk with and very thorough in his questioning about my medical history and condition. After having numerous colonoscopies with my prior gastroenterologist (he retired), I have my first scheduled with Dr. Pittman in a few months and I am sure he will be as thorough as my previous doctor. I have only good things to say about Dr. Pittman and would easily recommend him.

Highly recommend, entire office is very welcoming & professional as well as on time! Dr. Pittman was thorough, asked a lot of questions & really seemed to care.
in Mahwah, NJ |
Dr. Pittman was very thorough, friendly and informative. I went to see him for a pre-colonoscopy appointment and am now at ease about going for the procedure. The nurses and office staff were also friendly and professional, giving me a true sense of confidence in their ability to do their jobs.
