Verified Patient Reviews
The Doctor was gentle when delivering the information, knowledgeable and friendly definitely going back .
I was so happy I came to Dr. Breite for my annual physical. He has the warmest bedside manner and really took his time to get to know me, make me feel comfortable, and talk me through things I should be aware of in my health. It definitely feels like an old-school kind of place, where the people working at the practice actually invest in knowing and fighting for their patients. Would recommend.
Very friendly and knowledgeable.
Dr Breite was the first person to give me a straight answer on a health issue I've been struggling with for months. Massively knowledgeable, straight to the point, and figured out a problem four other doctors couldn't. Would highly, highly recommend.
Professional as he usually is.
Dr. Breite has been my primary care doctor for over 15 years and he's great. When I come in with a concern, he addresses it-whether that means a prescription, test, referral, or doing nothing. I've really appreciated being able to see someone consistently for so long. I highly recommend him.
I like how he always tells you just how it is.
I was really hopeful that Dr. Breite eould take time and listen. However, I left feeling dismissed and unheard...I am not sure what to really make of the appointment.

My visit with Dr Breite was great as usual, he's has a good sense of what's going on with my condition as best he can.

Ira has been my doctor for 20 years. Never a long wait and they never overbook. He is an excellent doctor who takes the time to talk to you no matter how routine the matter is. Personal touch like no other doctor i have ever been too. You feel like a human being, not like you are on an assembly line being pushed out the door so they can usher in someone else like so many others. Best in the biz as far as i am concerned.
Dr B is my favorite doctor ever. I love talking to him. Funny, knowledgable, interesting and interested. And kind. The best.
One of the very best in his field...

Seems like a very knowledgeable, experienced physician with a sane approach. My follow-up appointment is in one month. I will post a second review soon.
The office staff is friendly and my wait time was 5 mins. Dr. Breite is excellent and well versed in many areas of medicine. You can ask him any kind of question and he takes it seriously. He uses what I call a medical detective method to solve your problem.
I liked the doctor very much. He is very nice and personable and I felt very comfortable and confident in what we discussed.
Dr. Breite saw me approximately 10 minutes after my appointment was set to begin and spent 20 minutes talking over my issues and making recommendations. He was very professional, but also casual an easy to talk to without all the intense doctor jargon that can sometimes occur. He was friendly and had great bedside manner. I will definitely go to him again should the need arise.

It was really nice! Explained everything and answer all my questions.
Always takes his time to listen and speak with you.
Fully knowledgable, understanding and compassionate.
I moved out of the city almost ten years ago, and he is the one doctor my wife and I continue to drive in for. His intelligence, his manner, his thoroughness, his patience, and his willingness to explain things in ways that seem transparent to those of us who are not medical professionals, all keep us going back to him and sending other people his way.
Too bad I'm leaving New York! Dr. Breite was great as well as his office staff. Quick and easy breezy! Look no further folks, he's awesome:)
Ira has been my MD for 15 years. He's an excellent diagnostician whose advice and health care management are well informed. He's also a very caring person.
Really great experience. Took extra time to explain things even though he was running late.
He was very professional.
Knowledgeable, articulate, and unhurried. What could be better?
I love Dr. Breite! He's so down to earth. He takes you seriously and puts you at ease instantly.
Great. You can be completely honest with Dr. Breite - w/o worrying about 'being judged' for your lifestyle choices.
Good, down to earth doctor.
Fair. Knows your needs
Dr. Breite was friendly, took his time to speak to me and answer all of my questions. I would highly recommend this physician to friends. The office was well run-I made appointments online and was able to fill out all paperwork before my appointment which is a real time saver. Very pleased with my visit!
Dr. Breite was great. He took the time to listen carefully to my symptoms, and then presented me with my options. He gave me his opinion, but wasn't pushy or overbearing. Overall, a fantastic experience - far better than I've had with many doctors over the years.
Very patient in his approach. Took the time to hear out my history and symptoms. Discussed my condition and proposed treatment approach in detail. I had consulted a Gastroenterologist about a year ago who was decent. I would rate my experience with Dr Breite as better.
Professional, thorough, really made me feel at ease. Some people just have a nice way about them. Dr Breite is one of those people.
Great doctor. Highly recommended! He takes the time to listen, gave a thorough exam and answered all my questions. Nice office staff too.
