Dr. Hitt is absolutely the BEST provider I could have ever asked for. His concern for my condition and willingness to do whatever is necessary to help me with my hip and knee pain is outstanding. The amount of time he took with me to explain everything and to reassure me that he would do everything possible to help me was very comforting. I realize I might never be 100% healed from my knee and hip problems but if it can be done, Dr. Hitt will get it done! Absolutely the best in the business as far as I\'m concerned!

provider was rude . He has become accustomed to giving his opinion without regards to patience opinion. I do understand his patient case load is majority elderly Caucasian. It is not good customer service to tell the patient go home deal with the fact that you have Arthritis and there is no cure.( deal with it ) I was instructed to go home take tylenol three times a day and deal with it. If tylenol worked that well I would not have needed a referral to consult with him. I was insulted by the tylenol remark and if tylenol was a miracle cure Dr. Hitt would not have a medical practice

Hitt fixed a knee that had been through years of sports, 22 years in the Marine Corps and 20 more in business, and that had been operated on previously 44 years ago. to say the least it was beyond worn out. seven weeks after surgery I have almost full mobility and no pain. I\'d say he did a good job.

My experience with having my hip replacement surgery done w/Dr. Hitt and the staff at Baylor Scott White Bone Center was very good! I did not have to wait long when my appointments were scheduled; and my treatment by all the staff members was excellent. I am glad that I had my surgery done at Baylor Scott White and I am very thankful for their care for me.

Dr Hitt, told me that orthopedic surgeons did not operate on partial torn tendon. I asked him about what I was going to do for the pain. He prescribed a gel that the first warning sign was do not use if you have heart disease--he told me that was one of the reasons he wouldn\'t because of my heart condition. He then told me his Dad had back surgery 22 years ago, he couldn\'t play golf anymore ( I had said I couldn\'t play golf because of the pain) and he was still hurting!!

I have been hurting, unable to sleep more than 2 hours straight. after recent steroid injection ordered by Dr. hitt I was able to sleep 4 hours, a much needed improvement. I believe Dr. hitt correctly identified my problem And I have hope for a complete recovery. this has come after suffering for 6 months or longer.
