I was disappointed that the dr did not ask to speak to me after talking to my child and developing an action plan with my child. I did not have an opportunity for any follow up questions.

Dr Gittes is an excellent physician and does excellent job talking with both patient and parent. My daughter has seen Dr Gittes for past 2 years and absolutely adores her bc of her kindness, knowledge and above all listening skills. I wish more physician were like her. I would recommend her to family and friends.

All the staff was excellent with my daughter

Dr. Gittes is very knowledgeable and kind to the child and parents. I am very confident with her care. The only down side is the wait to see her; that being said, I do think it worth it to receive care from a very proficient adolescent specialist.

The doctor spoke directly to my daughter which was great. It was clear that she was great with teenagers and made her feel empowered. Great experience.

Dr. Gittes was a wonderful doctor. Explained things to us in a way we can understand, asked lots of questions which showed interest in really learning about what is going on with her. Overall we think she was excellent.

The doctor showed extreme care and gentleness towards my daughter, making her feel very at ease. She even printed out additional medical information regarding my daughter's issue that further explained things. She showed us that she genuinely cared for my daughter's health and well-being. I even commented to my daughter, "I really like her. She is such a good doctor." She took the time to think through all of my daughter's treatment plans and gave us 3 doctor referrals to get things started.
