Dr Gittes is a true professional - she cares about my daughter and our family. She is always willing to answer questions and spend the time needed with us/our child.

we really were vey pleased by Dr Gittes. she was a wonderful doctor who listened and respected what we had to tell her. she explained everything in detail to allay any fears. I would highly recommend her to anyone and plan to continue my daughters care in this matter with her.

I was not with my child during this visit. she went back alone. I was a bit surprised that Doctor never asked to speak to me or follow up with me on my daughters visit. however, my daughter did not have any concerns, this was a follow up visit from our I tisl appointment three months ago

Dr. Gittes is a phenomenal doctor. I have a yearly check-up with her for my anxiety medication needs, and she always wants to make sure that I am doing well emotionally, mentally, and physically. She takes the time to know about the specifics of my life, because these are the things that really affect a person's anxiety. She cares a lot, which is very important!

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

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!!

We greatly respected the doctor and resident who saw my daughter and will most likely switch pediatric groups to her. The exam was very thorough, which I appreciate. What was difficult, as we had to get back to work for the day, was the wait times before the visit, in-between seeing the nurse asst., the Resident, and Doctor as well as the wait time to get the blood work done. While I appreciate the efficiency in having everything in one place, the wait times were very frustrating. That being said, we will likely return.
