Dr. Pitts did a complete knee replacement for me on my right knee that could not have gone better. I was very motivated and followed all instructions he gave. I did amazing! In less than a month I was done with the walker and the cane and was walking and driving! I can go up and down steps normally now which I hadn't been able to for the last several years. Wish I hadn't waited so long to have the surgery! I have recommended him to family and friends with knee problems.

Dr Pitts didn't take the time to listen to me when I tried to explain the source of my injuries, he stopped me before I could finish and quickly made an assumption of what's wrong with my leg. I had to stop him from his way out of the room to explain to him additional details about my pain and discomfort. He didn't take the time to figure out what's causing the pain. I have had other doctors trying to reproduce the instance of the pain before in previous injuries but Dr Pitts didn't do any of that. All in all he spent about 3 minutes with me. When I asked him about my shoulder injury he said to come back another day for that because "we like to do one thing at a time around here". If the purpose of your practice is to give bad service and make a lot of money, you should be proud of Dr Pitts because he sent me to get an MRI and he's making good revenue for your Company. If the purpose is to provide health care and compassion, he definitely needs to be retrained.

Dr. Pitts was amazing when I learned that I would have to get ACL and meniscus repair surgery! He has excellent bed side service and really made sure I was comfortable with the procedure and understood each step he was going to take. I would highly recommend Dr. Pitts! His office staff was great too!
