In the words of Dr. Litt:
"I decided to specialize in cardiology because of the numerous treatments available to patients to enhance their quality of life.  I enjoy informing and educating patients about their treatment options.  I moved here with my wife and 2 sons 20 years ago and we enjoy all that Jacksonville has to offer.
Jacksonville has a rich military tradition and being passionate about history, I am privileged to provide care for numerous veterans.  Through their incredible experiences I have learned more about history than any book could ever provide.
Outside the office I enjoy hiking and camping especially in National Parks.  I also practice yoga.  My wife and I support the Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation and have served on their Board.  We have 2 dogs, a beautiful, brilliant Golden Retriever and a stubborn but cute Wheaton Terrier."
