Pleasant, thorough in both questions and examination. Has a very at ease bedside manner. Made me feel comfortable in his knowledge and treatment. He was on time and didn't rush my appointment. I would most definitely continue to use him as my physician without hesitation.

Dr. Pittman is the best doctor anyone could ever ask for. Dr. Pittman really is companionate and takes every step to find the best treatment to cure his patients. Dr. Pittman has fantastic bed side manners and never gets frustrated when medication doesn’t not work especially when I constantly has so many side effects on medication. I feel very secure that Dr. Pittman is my gastroenterologist I have been his patients now for several years and highly recommend him to all my friends and love ones. Dr. Pittman’s staff are all very kind and compassionate also, especially Kelly Broward the Office Manager.

Good - I was taken on time, results of a previous test were reviewed and explained, blood was taken for further testing and results were presented to me. In short, all went well and I feel relieved after my appointment.

I was most pleased with his attentiveness to my ongoing stomach problem history. He prescribed a pill and a follow up appointment for the end of the month-----this is most appreciated. I had a question and he responded via phone almost immediately. This was my first appointment with Dr. Pittman and I was most impressed. Thank you God bless

Dr. Pittman is the best of the five G.I.'s I have seen. He's excellent technically and actually listens to your complaints and tries to do his best for you at every visit. Believe me, there are a lot of lunatics and idiots out there and you would be crazy not to use Dr. Pittman as your go to guy when you need help.

Terrific doctor who listens! I had been to at least 5 GI doctors before and Dr Pittman has been my GI doctor for at least 6 years. At least 2 colonoscopies and 2 uppers have gone smoothly. Terrific, capable staff that works well with him. You can tell they all like him too!

Dr. Pittman is very knowledgable relating to the latest IBS/IBD treatments and medications. Always prompt for appointments, and he responds to medical related phone calls in a timely manner. On a personal level he is a no-nonsense communicator, an empathetic listener, and a compassionate doctor. After having been to several gastroenterologists for the last 5 years to no avail, I went to him with multiple miserable symptoms of UC and he brought me back from the brink. If I were a primary physician myself I would refer all of my patients to him.
