Only went there one time, got to go back.


Dr. Bitting along with a NP seem to have all the bases covered. I checked their online notes and found that I was quoted with total accuracy. They were not typing like crazy but looked at me and listened, and I listened to them. They were not obsessed with entering data into the computer. They did it later. High marks for the NP and Dr Bitting.


I have nothing but high regards for Dr. Rhonda Bitting.
