He has the ultimate Dr-God complex. If you are not a Doctor, then you obviously know nothing. Never smiles. No personality.

Contentious

He does a good job. In my case he took a conservative approach teaching me of alternative method of self treatment before prescribing medication two years later. Very easy to talk to and will actually listen to what you have to say, unlike many doctors I have seen in the past.

Highly recommended

I've been seeing Dr. Pittard for several years and find him easy to talk to about any health issue I may be concerned about. He has always made the time to discuss any problems - or perceived problems- I might have. He also doesn't hesitate to suggest other doctors or procedures if he feels they are necessary. I would highly recommend Dr. Pittard if you are searching for a great all-around doctor. BTW, both my wife and I are patients.

Doesn't care about patients welfare!

Asked this doctor to sign paperwork so I could get my medicines for free (I was eligible for help!) and he said he would NOT sign anything because he didn't want to pass out the medicines. Said that he could afford HIS medicines, and couldn't understand why others could NOT afford it. Unbelievably rude and obnoxious.
