February 21, 2014

Dr. Pitman is so kind. She took plenty of time to visit with us and discuss treatment options. I did have to wait a few minutes for her to come in, but if she spends that much time with her patients, it is worth the wait. She even mailed me more information that she found after we left.

February 19, 2014

Appreciated Dr. Pittman's empathy towards concerns addressed.

September 11, 2013

Dr Pitman took as much time as needed with me. We could not find the heart beat and she took all the time needed to find it.

September 09, 2013

I loved her!

September 02, 2013

Dr. Pittman was very friendly and welcoming. Thank you Dr. Pittman for making my experience as pleasant as possible!

August 27, 2013

Dr. Pittman is probably the best doctor of any kind I have been to. Her friendly and easy going bedside manner always puts me at ease and she is obviously very knowledgable and up to date on the latest research in her field. I would recommend her to everyone woman I know!

August 27, 2013

Dr. Pittman is the best!

August 13, 2013

I know trying to tell an over weight person is difficult but the teen who she was talking to came out of the visit depressed and hating her self. It could have been handled better

August 12, 2013

I've really enjoyed having Dr. Pittman as my doctor this pregnancy. I'm recommending her to my mother-in-law who needs to find a new doctor for her annual ob/gyn check-up.

August 09, 2013

Dr. Pittman was professional, caring, un hurried and willing to tackle a long series of questions we had. One of the best experiences I have ever had with a medical professional.

July 16, 2013

Dr. Pittman spent a lot of time with me discussing health concerns. She never felt rushed and really was engaged in the entire appointments. I really felt how much she cares for the well being of her patients. She has a calming presence that is welcoming in her line of care.

July 12, 2013

Dr. Pittman is a very compassionate and caring provider! She has a great bedside manner and is very supportive.

July 08, 2013

I had to bring my two-year-old to this particular visit because I was unable to get a sitter. I was very impressed with how sweet Dr. Pittman was with him, engaging him in conversation and in what was going on as she was checking the baby's heartbeat, etc. It made a huge difference for him, (and for me) that she helped him feel comfortable.

July 06, 2013

wait time was a lot in the examination room

June 03, 2013

Dr Pittman was very thorough and very caring in her explanation to me of my situation. I felt she truly cared about my situation.

May 24, 2013

I feel like Dr. Pittman is giving very vague answer and responses. She tells me different things at each appointment and I feel very frustrated. I am only having my baby at this hospital because of my insurance, otherwise I would go elsewhere. I don't know that I will come back to this hospital for future care or needs. That assistant, nurse and Dr. Pittman are not on the same page and I get different answers and responses to each one. When I call to talk to Dr. Pittman, the nurse wants me to tell her everything, when the dr. has specifically asked me to call back for her, not the nurse.

May 21, 2013

Dr. Pittman really heard me and asked me kind, appropriate questions about a really negative experience I had with a non-U affiliated OB/GYN (I shared my story about why I was feeling so apprehensive about the visit) After hearing me, she shared that hearing about my experience was a reminder to make sure to be very aware of where her patients are both physically and emotionally to give them the best care possible.

May 06, 2013

Dr. Pittman was very conscientious in how she proceeded with my appointment, given my history and circumstances at the time of my appointment. I appreciate her thoughtfulness!

May 06, 2013

I loved her! She made my visit super comfortable and I have already recommended her to my cousin when she needs to go in.

May 06, 2013

She is very personable, looks you in the eye as she explain things or answer my questions. I also noted that she did spend time reviewing my charts before seeing me as i had seen her a year ago.

May 06, 2013

AWESOME

April 15, 2013

I am so impressed with her care and would recommend her to anyone.

April 05, 2013

Dr. Pittman made me feel very comfortable and took the time to listen to my concerns and gave me much needed information.

March 25, 2013

The time spent with me was amazing even with being in the health care field. She treated me like any other person and went above and beyond.

March 04, 2013

This was my first time meeting Dr. Pittman; she was very kind and took the time to talk me through what the entire procedure would be like. I was grateful for this opportunity rather than just coming in, fearful of what I would encounter. I have now scheduled my appointment for the procedure itself, and I feel much more calm about everything. Thank you.

March 01, 2013

I have been completely pleased with Dr. Pittman and the entire office staff at Clinic 4. Everyone treated me with great care and concern. I received quick returns of phone calls and wonderful information.

February 28, 2013

She was attuned to my fears and wants.

February 25, 2013

I really like Dr. Pittman and I'm glad she is my doctor. She is very kind and caring, always very attentive to any questions and concerns I have about my pregnancy.

February 08, 2013

I loved the doctor, she was so nice. I sometimes felt like I wanted to say something but she talked too much and didn't pause enough for me to put in a word. She is so great and nice though that it was okay.

January 21, 2013

Dr. Pittman is the most caring, considerate, and knowledgeable OB/GYN I have ever seen. I would recommend her to anyone!

January 10, 2013

Dr. Pittman was amazing and I am so thankful that she will be my doctor in the future. I felt as if she truly cared about me and my health and well being.

November 19, 2012

I really like Dr Pittman. I feel comfortable with her and I'm confidant that she is giving me the best information and recommendations.

November 19, 2012

Just here for a routine annual exam- I absolutely love Dr. Pittman. She is fantastic, very knowledgeable, personable, and shows great concern for me as an individual. I look forward to being her patient as long as I can.

November 19, 2012

Dr. Pittman is great!

November 16, 2012

I'm very glad to have Dr. Pittman as my physician. Very easy to talk to, she explains everything.

November 12, 2012

Dr. Pittman is very nice and cares about her patients. She was able to relate with me which is always nice!

November 05, 2012

I would have liked more information about the follow-up care before the appointment. And a little more specific information about the follow-up care at the appointment.

November 05, 2012

Dr. Pittman is an excellent physician and she has my full confidence:)

October 22, 2012

I was extremely impressed with Dr Pittman. She talked to me in terms I could understand and valued my wishes in the treatment.

October 08, 2012

I was relieved to finally find an OBGyn that I felt comfortable with. She was so helpful, up-to-date and informative without being pushy. I would recommend Dr Pittman to everybody!

September 28, 2012

She was amazing and did a real nice job trying to make a personal connection with my daughter.

September 21, 2012

World class facility. I didn't feel rushed at all. I felt like they would have spent all day with me if needed

September 14, 2012

The doctor was great and I would return if needed.

September 04, 2012

Dr. Pittman was excellent and took the time needed to explain what we needed to know and showed a genuine care and wanted a solution for the problem. Thank you....she is a great physician!!!

August 20, 2012

I have been so pleased with Dr Pittman. She is extremely personable and I appreciate how she takes my concerns seriously, even when they are really minor, and gives me great suggestions as to what to do. I loved her comment of "you don't need to worry about that on your own, if it becomes an issue we will worry for you or with you." I just really like her approach and the way she balances being the doctor and offers her expert knowledge/manages my health issues with letting me feel in control and like I'm the one making my medical decisions. It is so nice to feel like you're in such great hands.

August 13, 2012

Dr. Pittman is extremely knowledgeable, kind and a fabulous listener. She has a wonderful bedside manner, and is very compassionate.

August 13, 2012

My daughter was really impressed with Dr. Pittman. she was so nervous about the visit, but Dr. Pittman put her at ease and answered all her questions. She told me that she really liked Dr. Pittman.

August 09, 2012

Dr. Pittman was very friendly and made me feel comfortable during my visit. She is easy to talk to and a good listener.

July 16, 2012

I loved her!! She was a tremendous doctor!

July 13, 2012

Dr Pittman is a wonderful OB and I am so glad I found her! I always feel well cared for and in good hands:)

July 03, 2012

Really like that we didn't feel rushed through our appointment

June 19, 2012

The wait time is the only con to my experience. Dr Pittman is wonderful

June 08, 2012

I know whenever I come to Huntsman and meet any doctors, everybody is very sincere. And I will have to voice that Dr.Pittman was beyond of my imagination. She was extremely sincere, understanding, kind and concerns my needs. If anybody is looking for Gynecologic Oncologist, I won't hesitate to refer Dr. Pittman to them.

June 07, 2012

Dr. Pittman treats you like a person. I like her.

June 06, 2012

This is my first visit with Dr. Pitman. She is very kind, caring and thorough. She is a great doctor.

June 05, 2012

I have been extremely pleased with Dr Pittman and am very glad she is my doctor. She is fabulous!

May 02, 2012

Dr. Pittman is wonderful. I never had an OBGYN doctor take so much time talking to me. I truly felt like a person of value. I wish Dr. Pittman was a primary care physician so that I would always feel that me as a person and my health issues are important. Great doctor!!! Will being going back to her for all my OBGYN needs.

May 02, 2012

She was very professional and efficient.

April 24, 2012

Dr. Pittman was great.

April 24, 2012

I felt Dr. Pittman was very empathetic and thorough. I am the type that ask a lot of questions. She is very patient with me. I felt she spent a lot of time with me even though it was just a routine, yearly vist. I would highly recommend her to others.

March 29, 2012

Dr. Pittman did not make me feel rushed. She is friendlier than my previous physician and makes me feel more comfortable.

March 26, 2012

The doctor was very clear on what was happening and what the next steps were. I would have liked a lot more background information to help me understand why and the rate of occurrence in women.

March 17, 2012

very thorough and love the explanations even though i am in the medical field

March 14, 2012

Dr. Pittmann was great. This was my first visit to an ob/gyn and I was nervous about what the appointment was going to be like and I was afraid of being pushed into taking birth control. Dr. Pittmann talked with me about the different types and gave me information to read, but she also told me it was okay to not take birth control. She listened to what I had to say and didn't try to push me one way or another. She listened to all my concerns and answered them.

March 13, 2012

I LOVE Dr. Pittman. I will be seeing her as a regular patient from here on out.

March 06, 2012

Dr. Pittman is excellent. she cared for me , as an assist to an attending while she was a resident and I find her extremely intelligent, patient and kind. she is thorough and provides excellent patient care

February 29, 2012

I appreciated the amount of time Dr. Pittman spent with me during and after the exam. I felt like she truely understood patients' feelings of shyness / uncomfortableness of meeting someone for the first time while in a gown, and therefore showed a lot of respect for the patient as a human being by wanting to meet prior to the exam.

February 28, 2012

I have been since multiple times within the University system, but it does not appear that my medical history is reviewed in any comprehensive way. I have had to re-explain my history every time I go to a new clinic within the University of Utah.

February 22, 2012

Dr. Pittman was excellent

February 08, 2012

I appreciated her time looking up my medications and any possible problems there could be with a pregnancy.

February 06, 2012

The doctor was really nice to me. But this is the second time that I waited for over 35 minutes and she only spent 5 minutes with me. I understand that other women might have more issues than me and at first, I thought my baby's healthy and maybe other patients require more attention than I do. But I still had some questions to ask her but she was so quick to leave. I felt that my visit was only to hear my baby's heartbeat through the doppler and I can't have more than 5 or 10 minutes with the doctor. I will still give it another try with her but I might change doctor if this happens on my next visit.

February 06, 2012

This was a fantastic experience. Dr. Pittman and Dr. Sok were both very accommodating when I asked if the needed procedure could be performed that day. They mentioned a wait, which was shorter that I would have imaged, and then proceeded to make all the arrangements very quickly.

February 01, 2012

Dr. Jessica Pittman did not listen to me. Later when she repeated what I said she mixed it all up. She did not show concern for me. I felt like I was in a confrontational situation, as if I was defending myself instead of receiving help. She interupted me all the time. Eye contatct was there, but she was thinking other things, or just out of it. I have seen MANY doctors of different kind and she blew me away with how badly her bedside manner is.

January 24, 2012

For my last appointment with Dr Pittman, she was out sick that week, but called me from home to let me know she would not be at my appointment but would still like me to be seen by Erin Wright. I thought that was very nice of her to call me herself, when she was at home sick.

January 24, 2012

This was by far the worst healthcare experience I've ever had. Although the wait time was ridiculous, it was primarily because of my interaction with this doctor. I had specific questions about my diagnosis -- which she was only able to partially answer. Instead of saying she would follow up, she changed the subject and/or tried to 'close' the discussion by rushing to the conclusion. When I asked about the her conclusion and why it was different than what my other doctor recommended, she effectively blew me off. She said she would follow up that afternoon or the next day. Two days later, she left a message on my voicemail, reiterating her recommendation (still didn't address my question about why this was different than my other doctor) and told me to call the nurses line. No phone number to call her back and talk through (since I clearly still had questions). I will not be seeing this doctor in the future. As someone who just moved to Utah (2 months) and is dealing with a complicated diagnosis, I am appalled by the experience that I had.

January 23, 2012

I absolutely love Dr. Pittman. I made my first appointment with her after looking at the different providers online and noting she staffed at the Centerville clinic which is closer to my home. On my first visit I was greatly relieved, she is fabulous. She always spends adequate time with me, she explains things thoroughly, and she has an excellent bed side manner. She always makes me feel comfortable and I feel more relaxed after talking to her and what to expect during my pregnancy. I would recommend anyone to her.

January 11, 2012

I appreciate Dr Pittman's knowledge and skill as well as her friendliness and enthusiasm. She is great.
