I loved seeing Dr. Girres; she is patient, thorough, and realistic about treatment options.

March 15, 2016

My daughter had a serious illness and everyone (doctor, nurses, secretaries) were all very helpful and made her feel at ease from our very first appointment to the last one. She has made a full recovery and I don't think she could have done it with out the help from everyone involved, especially Dr. Gittes. We are glad we don't have to see her anymore (for my daughter's fully recovered), but we will miss seeing her and the staff. They are a great team!

She and her staff is incredible!!

Dr Gittes always takes the time needed with our child and also with us - the parents. Also one of the nurses who recognized us spent time with our child

She's great!

Dr. Gittes is an amazing doctor. I would highly recommend her to anyone. She has helped my daughter to recover from her illness. She has provided us with a network of other counselors and nutritionists that are also wonderful. She is always friendly and knowledgable. She is very considerate of our questions and concerns. We always feel comfortable at her office.

Outstanding! Dr. Gittes quickly sorted through all the data, recommended a positive integrated plan and communicated it clearly. The best level of health care my daughter has ever received.

Dr. Gittes was amazing! She was easy to talk to, she "gets" what's going on and communicated a next step solution in a way that my son can understand and agree to. Her holistic approach to addressing the issue is wonderful.

Dr Gittes is excellent - very knowledgable about eating disorders and ALWAYS takes the time we need to talk with our child and us (parents). She is very calm and handles questions and comments very skillfully. She praises my child for things she has done well and laughs with her too

Outstanding, friendly and excellent expertise.
