very disappointed after traveling to Pittsburgh to spend 15 minutes with a dr that did not even exam me. The dr did not ask many questions about my health concerns and dismissed as worry and anxiety. I know my body better than anyone else. Drs should take the time to listen to patients and their concerns. Extremely disappointed with doctors anymore and a waste of my time and money.

Dr. Schaitkin is the best! Always shows interest in his patients -- is pleasant, courteous, professional and respectful.

Would highly recommend Dr. Schaitkin. He and his staff are professional, skilled, and caring.

Dr. Shaitkin is a caring compassionate provider who has helped me multiple times with ear issues. He is thorough and very competent.

Listens well, congenial and provides comprehensive diagnostics with appropriate care; however, wish that industry/system would allow more physician-patient time so that doctor could schedule ample time to answer patient questions and better explain condition.

I had to have massive surgery. this was a follow-up appointment. I was happy with the information I was given. I had to have a hearing test. I was also referred to another Dr that can help with my condition.

Dr was caring and knowledgeable about my issue. He listened to me, we discussed concern, and he addressed all issues.

Terrific to be able to see ENT on short notice for complicated sinusitis, as I was leaving the country. Excellent contact with appointment folks and doc was also terrific. Called promptly with culture results.

I travelled from Orlando for a specific surgery and my overall experience was outstanding.
