Specialties

Dr. Marcus L Pittman III has the following 2 specialties

  • Family Medicine

    A family practitioner is a doctor who specializes in caring for people of all ages, at all stages of life. Rather than focusing on the treatment of one disease or patient population, family practitioners are often the doctors that people see for their everyday ailments, like cold and flu or respiratory infections, and health screenings. When necessary, family practitioners will provide referrals for conditions that require the expertise of another specialist.
    The doctors may also provide physicals, inoculations, prenatal care, treat chronic diseases, like diabetes and asthma, and provide advice on disease prevention.

  • Emergency Medicine

    An emergency physician is a doctor who is an expert in handling conditions of an urgent and extremely dangerous nature. These specialists work in the emergency room (ER) departments of hospitals where they oversee cases involving cardiac distress, trauma, fractures, lacerations and other acute conditions.
    Emergency physicians are specially trained to make urgent life-saving decisions to treat patients during an emergency medical crisis. These doctors diagnose and stabilize patients before they are either well enough to be discharged, or transferred to the appropriate department for long-term care.

Dr. Pittman provided outstanding counseling for a personal problem; provided tests, results and options; and prescribed a therapy that has worked superbly. I highly recommend this personable physician. He takes time to explain everything.

Horrible Doctor

I wonder where this man got a license to practice medicine. He recommended an over the counter antacid and insisted there was no other problem. Went to another doctor and was treated accordingly. The office has no staff and this doctor works with just his wife who doubles as a nurse and receptionist.

Spent a lot of time with indigent patient who friend of mine

Dr. Pittman made rounds 2 x daily, answered all questions and spoke to my friend in layman's terms so he could understand. This man had no insurance so Dr. Pittman was not getting paid- but he even looked up the least expensive places for him to obtain his medication. I was impressed.

They don't make doctors like him anymore

This man was put on this earth to be a doctor. The world is a better place under his care. My mom wouldn't be alive if it weren't for him.
