I have seen Dr. Bitar for a few visits and a procedure years ago and his skills and knowledge always seem to impress me. My procedure, check ups and follow ups were great. Recently seeing him again his bedside manner is one of the best I've ever encountered. It was easy to make an appointment and his front desk staff is very nice and accommodating. Wait time was under five minutes he doesn't overlap appointments. I will always be great full to him for taking care of my problem and highly recommend him to anyone in need of his specialty.
