Based on comments from other providers and nurses, Dr. Bitran is a very highly respected oncologist. Never having had to deal with an illness such as this, that gives me a sense of confidence. My interactions with him are usually fairly quick but he respects my requests and listens to what I have to say. My experiences with him up to this point have been positive. He is knowledgeable, professional and tends to be pretty much to-the-point, which I have appreciate.

Dr. Bitran is an outstanding, top knowledgeable doctor. He has saved me in many ways with my health both physically and mentally. He is to the point and very supportive. He always takes time to talk with me and explains to me how I am doing and how I will be ok. He is very reassuring. I wish I could tell the world about this man. I have referred many people to him and the office and they have been happy. He is very professional and his office staff too. They are all supportive and helpful, always making sure I am ok. I have NEVER met another doctor as wonderful as Dr. Bitran. I wish he could be acknowledged for his expertise. It is very hard to find a doctor as good as he is with his patients. He is truly remarkable and I am so grateful for him and that he has been there for me. He always goes that step further to make sure I am ok with what he explains to me. I guess one needs to be in the situation I was in and realizes your life is in their hands because it will make people appreciate the intelligence of their doctors. He is my favorite doctor!
