Dr. Bitar is always wonderful. We usually see Dr. Sudol, but we've always been happy with all the providers. The doctors and nurses are the best - I recommend this office all the time to friends.
Dr. Bitar is an amazing physician. I envy the kids that they have such a good and attentive doctor.
Dr Bitar is a fantastic pediatrician - he always spends a lot of time with my daughter and she trusts him which is important given she is a teenager
Dr. Bitar is not who we normally see but have always had excellent experiences the times we have seen him! I really like him and would recommend him to anyone.
Dr. Bitar is always willing to listen. My child has special needs and I always have questions and concerns. He answers my questions and we talk through the concerns.
Dr Bitar is absolutely amazing in all aspects! excellent physician who is extremely thorough and caring. One of the all time best doctors I have ever seen. I have extremely high standards as I am a physician.
This was not a scheduled appointment but a walk in visit. Therefore, we were not expected to be seen immediately. However, we were at the office almost 2 hours, which was very long for a kid with a 103 temperature. What seem to take so long was: getting Tylenol from the nurse (almost 10 minutes), waiting for strept test results (waited 14 minutes), and waiting for flu test results (waited 27 minutes - yes, we timed it)
Dr Bitar was fabulous. so patient and helpful. he gets ten stars.
provider did not review my child's chart and consider his history of asthma. one week later child developed pneumonia due to lack of antibiotic being provided during our visit.
Dr.bitar, is a very good doctor. really gets to the bottom of problems when they a rise.
friendly and patient nurses
Dr. Bitar is amazing. Coming from a doctor, the highest praise!
Excellent physician, very kind and knowledgeable!
Dr Bitar listened well to my son's concerns and did a thorough exam (knee and ankle issues). He explained everything in clear, easy to understand terms and answered allof the questions that I had.
All of my questions and concerns were listened to, and answered to give me peace of mind.
Dr. Bitar always takes time to listen my or my child's concerns and formulates effective solutions.
Dr. Bitar is a great PCP. He had a very good understanding of my kids issues and he addressed them appropriately. He spent time and explained our concerns properly. He did a thorough physical exam and explained the health screening for their age. I was very impressed with my kids annual wellness visit this year.
Dr. Bitar has been our provider for 15 years. I think he's a great doctor, very caring, and always takes time - never feel rushed.
Dr. Bitar was very patient with my daughter despite her nerves. She had trouble providing a urine specimen, and he never made us feel rushed or guilty for taking too much of his time.
Dr. Bitar, Dr. "Kelly", and all the staff at Bellevue Pediatrics are always excellent! I can't praise them enough! thank you!
he seemed like he was in a rush. I had several questions about my health and prescriptions and he did not take the time to give me clear and complete answers.
Dr Bitar is a great pediatrician. i have full confidence in him. i am also a physician and have always been very happy with his care.
Dr. Bitar is an excellent pediatrician for my daughter
always a good experience
dr bitar is wonderful - knowledgeable, patient and kind.
we had a great visit and Dr.Bitar and Kayla were great!!
Dr. Bitar is wonderful. He listens thoughtfully to my concerns and helps me understand my child's situation with care and respect. I trust his judgement and appreciate his careful consideration of my concerns. I know that we really communicated well with each other, so I leave my visit feeling hopeful that I can take good care of my child.
Everything was good. Very efficient.
Dr. Bitar was very thorough and explained everything about our child's condition and prescribed medication. Always a positive experience at CCP.
the doctor was amazing with my son. He has anxiety over doctor visits due to previous medical issues that have required him to be in the hospital. the doctor was very calm with him and interacted with him and was able to gain his trust. it was a great experience for my son and myself
Dr Bitar, the nurses and the office staff are all wonderful.
Dr Bitar is one of the most thorough pediatricians I have ever had the chance to meet. I am grateful for hism and even though there are times you have to wait to see him, you know it's because he is being as thorough with another patient as he always is with your child. I am grateful for him and the time he takes. I never feel rushed or like what my 9 year old daughter is explaining to him is a problem. He is highly skilled, highly intelligent and I am so grateful he is in my daughter's office.
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
