“We treat from children and newborns up all the way up to geriatrics,” said Dr. Bitzer. “We deliver Patient-First Care by being attentive to the patients’ needs. This starts by carefully listening to what they are telling me what their problem is and assuring them that I am here to help.”

He completed urology and general surgery residencies at Southern Illinois University Affiliated Hospitals in Springfield, IL. Dr. Bitzer is board certified in urology and is a member of the Illinois State Medical Society and the American Urologic Association.
“I am pleased to bring 26 years of experience to the communities of Effingham, Greenville and Litchfield. I have a home in Vandalia so I am familiar with the area. My goals for my patients are to address their urologic problems to help improve their quality of life, and educate them to help them co-manage their conditions.”
