Excellent Doctor!

Dr. Breite has been my primary care physician for ten years now. There's a reason for that. Several in fact. First and foremost it is evident that this is a man who cares deeply about medicine and by extension his patients. He's astute, knows medicine thoroughly, and is a friendly man with a polite and positive disposition. Dr. Breite diagnosed a bicuspid aortic valve in my heart, catching it with his stethoscope, which is not a condition one normally tests for in general checkups. An echo-cardiogram confirmed it. He also put me to ease when some knucklehead residents in the ER insisted that I get a serious test done for a neurological disorder that they believed I had (with only a 1 in 3000 chance of developing cancer from the test) when he overruled their diagnosis. It was dehydration coupled with exhaustion from over-exerting myself on a hot day. Mary, his secretary, is always on point as well. I never have a problem getting referrals for other specialists that I have to see, or with scheduling or re-scheduling appointments. Highly recommended.
