Dr. Zitomer is an exceptional physician and gentleman. He took all the time in the world to explain my condition in detail, listened and answered questions, reviewed my options - all without making me feel hurried or nervous. His 'bedside' manner is polite, caring and informed. Before and after my operation, I felt my experience with Dr. Zitomer and his staff was exceptional. Highly recommend this physician to everyone! I wish all visits to a doctor's office were as professional and life-affirming as this.
Dr. was pleasant and good bedside manner. Staff very nice. I called them 5 times to schedule my procedures, the staff AND dr.(who called me personally) very nicely said THEY would call me back to schedule. I got 2 calls from the pharmacy: they ordered the prescription prep TWICE -without me being scheduled! Waited another week. Finally called to say I was going elsewhere due to not being called. Nurse returned my call the next day apologizing for what was their error and lack of communication. I appreciate that call but it does not build confidence when there is that much miscommunication within the office. I now will pay another $35 copay and will have to take time off work to have the procedure done. They need to get their scheduling department communicating with each other and patients.
I went in to see Dr. Zitomer for a consultation after working myself into a state of high anxiety (over a month of worrisome symptoms). He immediately put me more at ease with his wonderful bedside manner and proceeded to answer my many, many questions with the patience of Job. Today I went in for my procedures and experienced, from the woman who greeted me at the front desk, to the entire staff in the recovery/procedure area, such a high level of professionalism and care that I felt I would be remiss if I did not share my experience with others who might also be scared and in need of a wonderful doctor and staff. The entire team was knowledgeable, highly professional and quite compassionate.
In my daunting quest to find a doctor who could relieve me of painful digestive issues after having Gallbladder surgery a year ago,Dr. Zitomer knew exactly what was wrong and perscribed the medication I needed. He was the only doctor out of 4,including the Mayo Clinic who didn't tell me to "take Prilosac and learn to live with it!!" Within a few days I could actually go about my day without searching for bathrooms. He took me from a 10+ on the pain chart to an occasional 1-2. It's not perfect but it's now manageable.
