I would like to thank Dr.Teodor Pitea, MD and his interventional Endoscopy Associates in Collaboration with HonorHealth - Peoria. On June 16, 2022, I went thru a follow up procedure with Dr. Pitea at Del Webb Hospital to determine the condition of my esophagus over a year from a previous operation to correct an esophagus problem during a visit to the emergency room at Del Webb Hospital. I was very satisfied and pleased with Dr. Pitea and his team during the first procedure. After the original procedure I had no further problems with my esophagus. Over a year after the original procedure Dr. Pitea’s office called me to schedule a follow-up procedure to examine my esophagus to see how the esophagus was looking. Dr. Pitea reported to me after the procedure that everything looked good and delivered to me a discharge report. I was so impressed with the professionalism of Dr. Pitea and his staff that I wanted to express my review to the world. Everyone on his team was excellent

Dr. Pitea is one of the best. He relates well to people, listens to you, and explains things in terms you can understand. He’s professional and compassionate. I’ve had several ERCP’s and couldn’t ask for better care.

Had a routine every-five-year screening exam. Through education & prep before the procedure. Dr. Pitea was attentive and provided calm communication before, during, and after the outpatient procedure. Calmed my concerns re. anesthesia.

My experience with Dr. Pitea has been outstanding! He is professional and energetic and takes time needed to explain procedures thoroughly and understandably. There are many demands for his care but when you see him, he is fully present with you. I am most fortunate to have received his care. Another patient indicates that he accepts difficult cases and I can personally vouch for that. He is a well-published researcher. He has an extremely competent and professional staff.

Dr. Pitea is one of those doctors other doctors refer to. He's knowledgeable, skilled and confident. He takes on challenging cases that other doctors avoid. Dr. Pitea participates in studies and is a front runner in using cutting edge technology to treat his patients. He explains everything, including his plan, and then does it. He's usually running behind because of the demands on his time; he's a popular doctor and thus difficult to get into. Patience, though, will get you the best care.

Dr. Pitea is a genius and excellent physician; he even gave us his cell phone number if we had problems getting in touch. His office is a disgrace! Office dont call back, humans never answer, everything on answering machine. Had to go into office and demand to see a office manager to get an appointment an refill a RX. RX requests were not filled after a week of requests from myself and pharmacy. I called the head of Banner Health and complained, office lied said they never got request.
