Biography

Biography

Board certified endocrinologist David Fittingoff, M.D., was influenced by his father, also an endocrinologist, to pursue a career in medicine. Plus, the challenge of the specialty intrigued him. With few cures for endocrine problems, such as diabetes and thyroid conditions, helping patients control symptoms and their overall health takes a thorough understanding of the patient and the disease itself.

Dr. Fittingoff received his medical degree from Hahnemann University and went on to complete an internship at LAC/USC Medical Center, a residency at Wadsworth VA Medical Center and Sepulveda

VA Medical Center, all in Los Angeles, Calif., and a fellowship in endocrinology at the Sepulveda VA.

He is an assistant clinical professor of medicine at Olive View-UCLA Medical Center's division of endocrinology.

Dr. Fittingoff enjoys traveling, cooking skiing and playing tennis.

About Our Survey

The Patient Rating score is based on responses given during the Consumer Assessment of Healthcare Providers and Systems (CAHPS) Patient Experience Survey. Responses are measured on a 10-point scale, with 10 being the best score. These scores are then translated to a 5-point scale in order to display results in a 5-star rating. Comments are also gathered from the same survey and displayed in their entirety. However, language that may contain profanity, slander, libel or private health information is removed. Comments reflect the views and opinions of patients. Comments are not endorsed by, nor do they necessarily reflect the views of, Providence.

Dr. Fittingoff seemed to pass of my illness as a virus... it lasted 3 weeks. Was probably an early sinus infection but I was too mad to go back.

I was in so much pain and he took me in right away. the meds he gave me helped me a lot. I still have pain and I don't know if I have an approval for the chiropractic doctor. But the doctor was very helpful.

Dr. Fittinghoff saved my life by ordering blood count tests every three months I come to see him. He caught an abnormality in my WBC and referred me immediately to see a Hematologist/ Oncologist who ran many blood tests. I was diagnosed with CML which would have gone undetected without Dr. Fittinghoff's excellent care and watchful eye!

When I can actually get ahold of my Doctor and Doctors assistant they are AMAZING. So knowledgable, they're the reason I drive from Valencia. But when I'm experiencing an urgent matter, forget it.

I saw him through their urgent care and when I arrived I was told the doctors were at lunch. That is equal to a restaurant not having any food. Why would an urgent care doctor leave the facility when it was only open from 10-3. Regardless of the hours who can an urgent care doctor leave???????????

at times Dr Fittinghoff can have an attitude and dismiss my questions and concerns.

Provider prescribed Amoxiciline, yet the test for throat infection was negative, provider did not investigate further about the condition which ended up being an allergy and not an infection that did not need any type of antibiotics.
