Dr. Breite is one of the finest gastroenterologists out there. He's been my doctor since forever, almost. Dr. B's bedside manner is not only professional, but he's pleasant and has an awesome sense of humour. He's great at what he does.He's not rushing to get me out of the office; he sits and listens and I appreciate that. Sorry that it took me so long to submit this review as it's clearly long over due, but better late than never. Keep up the great work Dr. B!

This Dr. was rude and disrespectful. He wasn’t helpful and seemed to mock my medical condition. He made me feel terrible and unimportant and I left his office and made an appointment with another gastroenterologist.

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 beaware 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.

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.

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 otherdoctor 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.
