“I think educating patients is a crucial part of being a physician,” says Dr. Pitts. “The more patients and families can understand why we are recommending a medication, or why we recommend surgery, the more empowered they are to manage their care.”
Dr. Pitts earned his bachelor’s degree in chemistry, magna cum laude, graduating from Bates College in Lewistown, Maine. He earned his medical degree from Tufts University School of Medicine in Boston. Dr. Pitts completed his residency at Maine Medical Center’s Division of Urology.
He joins a team of urologists at Mount Nittany Health who are experts in all aspects of this specialty, including cancers, trauma, diseases, infections, and unique conditions.
“The hospital and the providers at Mount Nittany Health are very collegial and create a welcoming environment, and I’m excited to join the team,” says Dr. Pitts. “I was also drawn to the close-knit community and the unique blend of city/rural environments found in State College. My wife and I are excited to explore the State College area!”
Outside the office, Dr. Pitts enjoys running, biking, and playing piano.
