We were pleased with our visit.

November 17, 2016

This physician is very knowledgeable, however has a brusque delivery and air of annoyance. His overall demeanor feels as though the parent should already know what he is talking about and should not ask silly questions or make uninformed assumptions.

August 01, 2016

Friendly and understanding. Definitely recommend!

This provider, Dr.Sitwat is the exact perfect fit for our family. He has superior intellect and assessment skills. He was able to transition our son from his initial status with epilepsy into a well maintained person with epilepsy. Dr. Sitwat fought for our son to receive the best care possible during our first meeting. Dr. Sitwat ordered medications that have since kept our son witnessed seizure free. We appreciate his personable nature but more importantly we feel safe with his treatment recommendations.
