Cancer Center - Froedtert Hospital (414) 805-0505

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.

It's a pleasure to be a patient of Dr. Chitambar. I don't normally like visiting doctors but he is caring and is easy to talk to. He always is genuinely concerned about things I talk to him about. I wouldn't want any other Dr. to be my cancer Dr.

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!
