Guthrie Patient: January 2018
Very nice man.
Guthrie Patient: January 2018
8. He helps those who need it.
Guthrie Patient: January 2018
He didn't give me any answers on why I have swollen lymph noes or swollen cartilage in my neck I felt it was a big waste of time and he thought I could have tonsillitis and couldn't even tell my tonsils were already surgically removed.
Guthrie Patient: December 2017
Excellent provider.
Guthrie Patient: December 2017
Had to wait a week to see if biopsy was cancerous as 1st ENT surgeon expected. Strange that a 3rd yr. med student who asked why were there was the one to tell us it wasn't! Awkward!
Guthrie Patient: November 2017
Very good doctor. Matter of fact kind of guy. Direct-to the point. Easy to understand; spoke in plain English not wishy washy. Really like him.
Guthrie Patient: October 2017
I could not be more pleased with visit with Dr. Pellitteri. He was thorough, compassionate and took my concerns seriously. I left feeling very well taken care of. The examination revealed an issue to be treated and a treatment plan was devised. Worth the 2 hour drive!
Guthrie Patient: October 2017
He was direct and to the point!
Guthrie Patient: October 2017
He clearly never looked at my records. Saw no reason for 6 month checks that *Dr. Tolhurst did for 15 years. I will go in 6 months but he seemed to feel unimportant.
Guthrie Patient: September 2017
*Dr. Pallitteri is an exceptionally concerned & competent physician, w/w I always recommend.
