"Dr. Pitts is very good. He knows his stuff very well and gives you the opportunity to give your input. He answered all my questions and took his time with me. I did not feel that he was distracted or in a hurry to get me out the door. I was seen for my shoulders and they are healing very nicely. Thank you very much Dr. Pitts." -- Sherelle J.

"Dr. Pitts & Lisa Horst in his office are like old family friends. With two boys, bones are going to need attention.  My 17-year-old senior has been a patient since 8th grade (broken arm & two broken ankles).  My 13-year-old, who is now going into 8th grade, had his first broken arm this spring.  Dr. Pitts has such a calm demeanor, yet he is matter of fact and relates to all ages.

"Lisa does a wonderful job fitting us into the schedule for appointments and follow-up appointments. We appreciate the office in Owasso very much."  --Amy B.

"There are really no words to express the great care my daughter received from Dr. Pitts! Anna Kate had broken her ankle the day before her state gymnastics meet. So, being VERY upset and scared, we ended up in Dr. Pitts' office. He made her feel VERY comfortable and told her that she would soon be back out on the gym floor.  He was so kind and caring. She was excited to go back to see him every three weeks! If every doctor was as kind and caring as Dr. Pitts, no one would worry about going to the doctor.

"When we left for the last time, Anna Kate had tears in her eyes because she wasn't going to get to see him again. She waited for him to come out of another room to give him a hug goodbye. He gave her confidence to start tumbling again, and she is now back to her tumbling and loving gymnastics still! We cannot THANK Dr. Pitts enough for his caring and sweet disposition. I can't Thank him enough for taking care of my child and making her feel so comfortable going to the doctor. So thank you, Dr. Pitts and your staff, for being so sweet and caring!!!" --Lee Anne D.

"I am a freshman soccer player at Owasso High School. I severely strained my groin at practice on a Thursday afternoon. I showed my Mom right after practice and she took me to the clinic where my brother had physical therapy. It was already knotted up and I was in tears with the pain and the stress of possibly not being ready for the start of the high school season. Dr. Pitts saw me at 10 a.m. the next morning. When he told me I was out for at least two weeks and would miss my season opener, I was crushed and afraid I would lose my spot on the team. Dr. Pitts reassured me it would all be okay and asked if I would like for him to contact my coach. He contacted my coach that afternoon and it made all the difference! My coach knew I was serious about my recovery and that Dr. Pitts and my physical therapist were staying on top of things. He went above and beyond diagnosing my injury. I was back in two weeks competing with JV and Varsity!" -- Lauren M.

"In January 2012 I had stress fractures in my sacrum area and in the pelvic area they were painful and very limiting to what I could do. Dr. Pitts worked with me and I appreciate his concern about my condition. I have been on a walker for a while and I have found it difficult to buy groceries, but found that Brames could fulfill my groceries need with not much walking and would carry out my things to the car. I am still recovering and Dr. Pitts is working on getting me well again with physical therapy and monitoring my recovery." -- Sherel I.
