Dr. Litman is both an excellent surgeon and has excellent interpersonal skills. He and his office responded immediately to an emergency I was having and followed up with me the next day. He personally called me to arrange for me to see him in his office at a time that was convenient for me. He fully explained my procedure, repair of a deviated septum. Following my surgery he personally sought out my spouse to advise her about how the surgery went. He is highly committed to his practice and his patients. His office staff is extremely responsive.
