What People Say About Dr. Victor Kitt, MD
RecentHighestLowestMost Helpful

Dr. Kitt performed a surgery on my left ear that left me with bleeding, infection, temporary facial paralysis, and ultimately less hearing than I started with. He lied when I asked if anything was wrong after surgery, I learned this when I got a second opinion. I had a severe infection and required more surgeries to correct his mistakes. His rudeness and dishonesty aside, he should not have a medical license, he seems more concerned with defending his work than helping patients. He is a disgrace to his profession.

My experience at Dr Kitt’s office was AWFUL. I had a feeling it would be based on my phone conversation with the receptionist when booking the appointment. She was very rude. The office looked run down& very full of patients. I waited 30 minutes after my appointment time to see the doctor. He came in, did not introduce himself & asked what brought me in. I was only able to say one of the symptoms I’m having before he started to shake his head & went on a very loud, very unprofessional lecture as to how I was wrong and that what I was saying wasn’t correct. He started to describe the issue I was having as nothing more than a migraine and that there isn’t anything he could do to help with that. I showed him my CT scan which I was told to complete and bring in with me. He said there was nothing wrong with my CT & that there wasn’t anything he could do for me. He told me to continue taking medications I’m already on & to just up the dose. I have never been treated this way by a doctor!

I went to Dr. Kitt and I would not recommend him to anyone. He asked me what I thought was wrong with me. That was what I was paying him to tell me. He insulted me and didn't help me at all. You maybe able to get in with him faster than another doctor, but you will just waste your time and money.

The office is pretty nice. The people working at the desk are pretty nice. The assistant seemed annoyed, but she did her job well. Victor seems nice at first , but he is very defensive when it comes to asking questions about his prognosis. His bed side manner is not the best but his evaluations seem sound.

I had an extensive / complex surgical procedure on my sinuses. Glad to have a doctor with so much experience, the outcome has been great. The recovery was more difficult than I heard in the appointments prior to surgery but it would not have changed the outcome regardless of the recovery process. Dr Kitt was straight forward and willing to answer all of my question and concerns.

Took my daughter to him, he was absolutely rude, confrontational, accusatory. Instigating violence. Never again will I seek his services.
