Care Philosophy

You have to approach every patient in a unique way, and that's the reason for the multispecialty tumor board where you can have many physicians look at the patient and what is the best treatment plan. So there's 20 or 30 doctors that are involved, ultimately, in the care of these patients. The first thing I do for them is see them immediately. They've been told they have a problem, typically a tumor or a cancer, and that raises a lot of anxiety. And the best thing I can do for them is see them immediately and get the ball rolling. Evaluate them and get their treatment underway as soon as possible.

Patient Comments (1)
in Deer Park, IL |
I had pain from a bone tumor in my toe that kept me from running. Other foot specialists contemplated removing the toe, but Dr. Gitelis confidently evaluated the toe and determined that a tumor extraction with a hip bone graft would be best. He answered all of my questions @ each visit! After 3 months, I was able to walk and return to training. Then, after 6 months, I was able to race the Chicago Marathon. Thank you to Dr. Gitelis & his great staff...nothing but gratitude for your great work
