Doctor Pittman is very easy to talk to and very skilled. In the past 15 years, I've seen four other gastroenterologists and he is the best by a landslide. I highly recommend him.

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!

I've been seeing Dr Pittman for 2 years. He's very knowledgeable in his field of gastroenterology. He is working very hard to find the right treatment plan for me. He is very compassionate and and truly cares about the well being of his patients. I would recommend him to my friends and family.

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.

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.

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.

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.
