[...]'s medical history is complicated. We have known since her heart surgery in 1998 that her heart condition cannot be healed and that the focus in on treating symptoms so that she is as comfortable as possible. We weren't sure that Dr. Litt knew that.

[...] Receptionist was also very rude about me being literally 3 minutes late for my appointment even going so far as to recommend rescheduling. Keeping in mind I still spent more than 15 minutes waiting for my appointment and no one was ahead of me, confirmed when I asked about the need to reschedule.The Dr was more interested in typing his notes than paying attention to or answering any questions regarding my disorder and possible issues with my age and time since surgery. Overall, extremely poor service and the receptionist [...] were more concerned with office gossip and personal phone calls than assisting me.

My care provider listen to what i need to get better. I thank him for that.

I don't believe he listened to me very well. He saw something on my chart (from the past) and just "went that direction". Since then, the provider he referred me to, believes it "is" my heart that's causing the pain; not what Dr. Litt "assumed" it was from past history. I would never go back to Litt. I think he treated me "like a woman". Grrrr....

He was Very thorough and listened well.. his multi tasking skills were exceptional but distracting for me. so his comment that I seemed to get more disorganized as the interview progressed may have been due to being distraction...It is just the way I have always been..

The care provider and staff were excellent, however, when one goes to a doctor and EVERYONE is dressed in fleece, hats and gloves there is a real problem with the heating system. I understand the air conditioning was still being used. In December at 40o someone should be checking the furnace as this is terribly unhealthy for the staff as well as the patients.
