Dr. Blitzer has been my doctor since 2015. Not only is he very knowledgeable, he treated me with such gentle care, compassion and professionalism that I am so thankful he is my doctor. He always assures me that I can call or come in anytime I feel the need.

Great Doctor

My insurance changed and as a result, I has to see a new Oncologist. I was apprehensive about a major change but Dr. Blitzer was professional, courteous and very thorough. I highly recommend Dr. Blitzer .

Follow Thru Sucks

Went to Dr. Blitzer awhile back. My cancer returned for the 3rd time and I had found another lump - Dr. Blitzer absolutely refused to order a PET scan on me. I finally had one ordered by my surgeon and not only did my tumor glow under the scan but I had a lymph node in the center of my chest also glowing. Had I not changed oncologist and got that PET scan I would probably be dead by now. Always go with your Gut and if a doctor won't order a test for you that you know every other cancer patient gets - then go elsewhere. It may just save your life!

Dr. Blitzer's lack of caring and communication

I have to comment on Dr. Blitzer's level of patient - doctor communication and care. My father was a cancer patient of Dr. Blitzer's, and he is currently on home hospice care and getting progressively worse. He has terminal cancer. Over the past couple of months, my father was in the hospital, and then went to a nursing home to further recover and receive therapy. My mother was in contact with Blitzer's office for questions, etc. several times during this time and NOT ONCE did Dr. Blitzer ever see my father either in the hospital or nursing home. On my mothers 2nd to last phone call to his office, she asked for an estimate on how much time my father had left. The nurse to whom she was speaking said she would go ask the doctor - Dr. Blitzer DID NOT EVEN COME TO THE PHONE to talk to my mother. This is appalling and shameful, in my opinion. Moreover, his office later knew, via my mother's last call to them, that he was going on hospice care. Dr. Blitzer NEVER called, his office didn't call either to follow up, Shame on him, and shame on the lack of communication, care, empathy etc. This is not the way to treat a patient!
