we love Dr Bitter he takes his time and is very good with all my children
Dr. Bitar is an excellent provider. I always feel comfortable with both of my children knowing they are getting the best possible care. Dr. Bitar is very thorough and discusses things in terms that we can understand. We appreciate the time he spends with us regarding our children.
I was very happy with the time and care that Dr. Bitar assisted us and in speaking to my son as his patient.
Dr. Bitar always explains things and takes necessary time with my daughter. Whenever I need anything at all, someone in the office always gets back to me in a very reasonable and timely manner. Times when I am not able to get in with him because he is at another location, I do not mind seeing any of the other doctors. They are all very nice, caring, and knowledgeable. I have been traveling 45 minutes to go to this location since I switched from my old pediatrician who was less than 20 minutes away.
Dr Bitar is a PHENOMENAL physician. His patience, kindness and ability to listen is astounding. I cannot possibly say enough great things about this gentleman. I am really appreciative we have him at CCP Bellevue.
appointment was for 7:30, arrived on time waiting room to exam room was very quick.Waited for an hour to be seen without any update or acknowledgement of a delay.
Dr seem to cut me off when I asked questions did not appreciate that. No real concern seem to be given to my child I FELT RUSHED LIKE HELL AND WILL NOT EVER AGAIN WANT TO SEE HIM
It was good. Would have been helpful if the information he told us about temp was written down.
We love Dr. Bitar!
Dr. Bitar was very attentive and gave me advice on how to stay healthy in the coming year. He treated me with respect, listened to what I had to say, and was effecient in his examination.
i wish i could have given his doctor 12 he is amazing with my son and truely helps me underatand things about my son ..Amazing doctor since the day he was born..
explains each step thoroughly. friendly to my children.
Doctor Bitar is very professional and very thorough. We request him especially when facing a more serious medical situation.
Amazing visit. Dr Bitar was great with my son. I would highly recommend him and will request him for all future visits.
he's amazing! very attentive, smart, knowledgeable, & caring. He explained concerns to my level which I loved. he's our doc from here on out
Dr. Bitar is so wonderful! He is patient and very thorough. I always feel he spends enough time with us at each visit, and he's never rushing us out of the door. His bedside manner is fantastic with both kids and adults.
Dr. Bitar is not my daughter's regular pediatrician but he is extremely patient as well everytime when we see him. he is a excellent doctor that I would suggest to other people to go for. My daughter's doctor Megan Kilpatrick is exelllent too as she always try to help us out with all our request and question. they both are wonderful doctors
Dr Bitar is the BEST in the business!!!!
provider was good, wait time was long. however, the appointment was only made the morning of the visit.
I love going to this doctor's office and the providers that work there. it is frustrating though to be at the doctors office for an hour with young children every visit due to the doctors always being behind schedule.
My son said that he really liked Dr. Bitar and would like to see him again in the future.
very pleased with the care provided
very good experience,very thorough
We did not have an appointment and the office was very busy, but we were seen within the hour and the physician got us what we needed.
We had a good visit.
the staff is always nice and helpful
excellent service provided
We love Dr Bitar. We always have a good experience and feel he is providing the very best care to our children.
Dr. Bitar has handled many concerns for my 3 children and I have ALWAYS felt confident in his care. I trust him. He listens carefully and answers my many questions kindly and thoroughly. I appreciated his evening hours and he has eased my mind for many worrisome health concerns. Even though he is not their primary physician (they are teenage girls, so they prefer a female physician for checkups) he has been there to help us diagnose and manage migraines, skin infections, nut allergies and other situations where I needed a trusted professional in a hurry that could accurately diagnose and treat my children. I would recommend him highly.
The receptionist went out of her way to help get athletic forms that were needed, went online to find them, downloaded and printed them for the doctor. Dr. Bitar was very professional in talking about the sensitive issues that were discussed at the appointment.
Doctor nice but appears to be preoccupied in getting from room to room versus sitting with us and making us top priority at the moment.
Very happy with the doctor....waited an hour to be seen!
I have recommended Dr. Bitar to friends and family already. I have been seeing him for both my boys since both their births. he is wonderful at listening and explaining. we love him!
first time visit and very satisfied
when I was younger I was Dr. Bittar's patient and cried when I was longer eligible to be seen due to my age, and both of my children have seen him since there birth and I can't think of one complaint. The office staff, nurses, and Dr.Bittar are wonderful and that is why I travel 45 minutes one way since I relocated to keep him as my child's PCP. My son is 9 and my daughter is 4 so he has become like family to us!!!!!
Dr Bitar is the Dr who finally explained that allergy medicine like Claritin takes about a week to show a change. That completely changed my child's health a few years ago. no more 'colds'! Other Drs just said to try allergy medicine but with no guidance of how long it would take to show effects.
We were seen sooner than we often are. But we really respect and appreciate Dr Bitar and he always takes the time to explain and discuss things as needed. We purposely make well checks with him. This was a well check for college and my son really did not have any complaints or problems that were being addressed.
we have always been very please with the service we receive with this provider
Thank you so much Dr.Bitar for explaining so good everything for my child health.Thank you so much for being so nice with us.
Dr. Bitar is always kind and he knows his stuff.
Everything went very smoothly
Would not change or suggest a thing. I could not be HAPPIER as to the way Dr. Bitar has taken care of our Boys.
Dr. Bitar is always one of my favorites!
Dr. Bitar was attentive,patient and willing to answer questions and concerns about my child. He was willing to find me a second opiinion for my child.
My appointment time was 730. I arrived at 7:15 which was early- but this was the first time at this location. Dr. O'Hallaron is her usual Pediatrician. The receptionist and nurse were very kind. I was just upset that my daughter was not seen until 8:30. We were in the exam room so long that the lights went off 3 times. my daughter is 8 and was so miserable that she just laid on the exam table and rested her head on my shoulder. The doctor was very nice and diagnosed my daughter with Pnemonia and answered my questions very thoroughly as I was very concerned with her health. She came home from school Friday the 10th throwing up and was sick still Saturday. Sunday started a fever that continued through Tuesday when we came in to see doctor. she did not have a cough or stuffy nose until Tuesday morning. When he said she had pneumonia I was shocked. I was very pleased with the doctor- it just took till 8:30 to see him. Ig seemed like an eternity. We left at 845 but the pharmacy closed at 9 so couldn't get her antibiotic until Wednesday at 9am
the doctor was great
despite having a rash on my child's neck and ears with it traveling into her scalp he never thoroughly checked her scalp leading to a miss diagnosis. Had he checked her scalp he would have seen that my child had lice and we would have been able to treat my child properly. I will not be seeing that doctor again.
