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.
Guthrie Patient: September 2017
Dr. looked and acted very professionally. Explained what he had seen on my ct scan disk thoroughly and understandably.
Guthrie Patient: May 2017
very good doctor
Guthrie Patient: May 2017
Like I said, Dr. Pelleteri is one of the best!!!! Do not let him go!!
Guthrie Patient: January 2017
I feel Dr. Pellitteri is one of the finest providers in the Guthrie system.
Guthrie Patient: January 2017
