Prior to joining Gotham Gastroenterology, Dr. Pitman completed his undergraduate degree at Yale University, where he studied English Literature. After a time in Central America working on health education in rural communities, he went on to complete his M.D. at Columbia University. There he was an active investigator, and was awarded a year-long fellowship in clinical outcomes research. He remained at Columbia for his residency in Internal Medicine and was elected Senior Medicine Resident of the Year, before completing a gastroenterology fellowship at New York University Medical Center. During GI fellowship, he was widely recognized for his outstanding and compassionate patient care, and was elected as a member of the Gold Humanism Honor Society.

Dr. Pitman is an Attending Physician at NYU Langone Medical Center, where he enjoys teaching students, medical residents, and GI fellows. His research has appeared in multiple peer-reviewed journals and at national meetings, and has included topics such as celiac disease, quality measures in endoscopy, obesity, and acid reflux disease.
