A patient's message

Read messages sent to Dr. Kittinger on National Doctors' Day.

"Thank you for being so caring. I cannot thank you enough for everything you have done for me since my weight loss surgery. I look forward to coming back to see you in May soon for my second procedure. Happy doctors day!" - Kristy

"Dr. Ben, thank you so much for all you have done for our daughter since her accident. You followed her progress, met with us about a plan, and eased our fears all before she was technically your patient. You radiate positivity and are a joy to be around. We are so grateful for you!" - Nicole

"When my husband was diagnosed with melanoma, we knew we needed to find help. We were sent to a doctor in Louisville. Drove two hours and found out that the trip was for nothing. No one there seem to really care... treated us very poorly. Drove back home... jumped on the computer, and by the grace of God, we found Dr. Ben Kittinger. From the first appointment we knew he was concerned by his actions. He operated on my husband and since then he has done two more procedures. We trust him, because by his actions, we feel he cares. No one can ask for more than that. Thank you and your caring staff, we send our appreciation to you and staff and honor your office on this doctor's day." - Sincerely, Jake and Mary V.
