I feel that it is important to care for patients as a whole, combining the specific treatment of their disease with their desire for quality of life. Even when their disease is no longer responding to treatment, there is always something that can be done to help them deal with their illness. Communication with my patients and educating them about their disease is an integral part of my practice.

He listens to my questions and answers to his questions and considers them with great care and an obvious command of the field. He includes my input in his decision making.

I actually waited much more than 15minutes after appointment time. Good communication about how far behind the provider is needs to be improved. I had time to go eat lunch, or go to the pharmacy or whatever. When I asked the scheduler how much longer, she said another 30 minutes. I calmly stated that was unacceptable given my responsibility to pick up my child from school on time. Other staff members overheard the interaction & got involved. Otherwise I would have needed to reschedule which decreases my satisfaction. All the nurses(Jessie), techs and providers(Marissa) are great...even after this, I still highly recommend this department to my girlfriends!

May 20, 2019
I contacted my provider's nurse practitioner via MyChart regarding medication side effects, since I saw her for my last 6 month follow-up, and asked if Dr. Chitamber felt I needed to remain on the medication for an additional 3 years as originally planned. She responded that we'd discuss at appointment. I did not see her but rather saw Dr. Chitamber directly and he discussed my question and offered several options based on his experience with this treatment. He knew the details of my diagnosis and chemo treatment and genetic risk assessment. I trust his opinion and knowledge.

Dr. Chitambar is a Dr. that truly cares about any questions or concerns I may have. It is a pleasure to have him as my Dr. I have always been treated well by him and the staff working with him.

I feel Dr. Christopher is exceptional in his knowledge & expertise in his area of medicine. He is a patient _____ who is certain he understands my current condition, questions & concerns and speaks with me on my level (does not speak down or is overly simplified terms). I never feel rushed, am a partner in the treatment plan and leave with questions answered & knowledgeable of my status & plan for current & future actions. I feel very much in control of my treatment plan with his expert knowledge & options to guide me. He and his staff are extremely responsive, professional and supportive in my present care/treatment plan. Thank you!
