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.
