5 out of 5 stars Septoplasty

Dr Pitzer is the best

It was a great experience. I had a septoplasty and turbinate reduction and all the process was smooth and just perfect. I highly highly recommend this doctor as he is friendly and very nice when it comes to the surgery procedure.

5 out of 5 stars CO2 Laser

CO2 Laser for Sun Damage & Acne Scarring + Botox - Palo Alto, CA

Dr Pitzer was attentive, helpful, realistic, quick to respond, had a great sense of humor, and was not trying to sell me anything.
