Dr. Hitt was very kind and knew about my health and what was going to take place before I could think about having my knee replaced. He was was amicable and supportive.

it was end of work day, and I ended up being the last patient. Dr wasn\'t as engaged as he was when I had my first knee replacement, acted actually like he didn\'t want to do it, but as he had said in past, tell me when you want to do it.

excessive wait time, felt like provider didn\'t take my problem seriously and only ordered treatments that I suggested instead of him taking the proactive stance to my care. the Resident was good

did not spend enough time with me before surgery, after surgery and did not see me again for any of my follow ups so far. I spent a lot of time getting ready for my surgery and felt like I was just a number on his list of surgeries. one of 18 that day is rumored. although he did see me for a minute after surgery to tell me he would be leaving the next day for a seminar in Amsterdam I think he said. his team would see me for my stay in the hospital. they were not personable at all. I do have two more suggestions 1- do you do upper body strength exercises a month prior to surgery. 2- check out rehabilitation facilities in case you have to go to one before hand. Not everyone goes home right after surgery.

Dr. Hitt is always rushed. I\'ve had several appointments with him. When you disagree with him, he gets standoffish, and he can\'t wait to get you out of his office. He contradicts what he told me in previous appointments and pretty much makes me look like a liar when I remind him what he previously told me. He has no solution to my problem and amount of pain I\'m in. He never looks at old images, mri or xray, can\'t recommend him. Even a colleague of his told me in the hallway that I should get a second opinion. I feel Dr. Hitt is getting too big for his bridges, his ego is in his way of being a good physician.

Dr. Hitt is the best. that is why I chose him-that and because he is a fellow Aggie! seriously, I recommend him all the time tonpeole who have chronic hip pain. I have had 2 hips replaced. He did them both. and if I had more hips and needed them to not hurt, he\'d be the one I\'d pick to fix me. he is personable, open and honest. I highly recommend him and will in the future.
