      Physician was very rushed. Was in and out of the exam room very quickly. Didn't seem concerned by the issues I was still having. I also didn't feel that I could comfortably ask questions.

      Dr Pittman and all of his staff, were all exceptionally friendly, helpful and knowledgeable. I have already recommended him to others, and will continue to do so. Great experience! Just wish he had better options to fix my problem.

      Dr Pittman answered all our questions in a very professional, knowledgeable manner but was very kind and compassionate while talking with us. He didn't make us feel rushed either, which we truly appreciated!

      I hope he is as good as he thinks he is... *Dr. Pittman is very unapproachable. His residence (?) was better. But I felt I was dismissed and not important. No feel goodness - just the facts. I can deal with it but others will not.

      Dr. Pittman and his staff are great. I have been seeing him for brain cancer issues. I have been having issues now with my leg being numb and not being able to touch it and I am concerned about that and asked him and his team who to see about it and he didn't even discuss it so I guess they willMake that appointment too
