One Star

Rather pompous and impressed with himself. Staff does not return phone calls. Needs some lessons on how to respect his patients, after all they pay the bills! Waiting time much too long!

Two Stars

Re: bedside manner -- I think it's probable that Dr. Bitar skipped those classes in medical school entirely. He even said he's too busy to show any kindness or compassion to his patients. His staff has picked up the same attitude. The surgical staff who prepared me in the operating room before my surgery showed only indifference and callousness, no human feeling or compassion at all. I might as well have been a lump of coal laying on that operating table.

Three Stars

Dr. Bitar knows his medical stuff, but he is not a kind or compassionate person. In the four years I've been his patient, it wasn't until a few weeks ago after heart surgery that he said to me, "You've been through a lot." That was the first kind thing he said to me in four years.
