A review from a long time patient

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.

dr breite although probably a good diagnostician lacks compassion and the human componentf if someone has a serous problem...although probably a good doctor i has passed his prime and should think of retirINg. He is definitely to egotistical and genreally resents questions asked if someone has a little knowledge..
a good doctor

a good doctor who cares
Rude horrible doctor
Posted on March 28th, 2011
He is the worst doctor I have ever met. He is rude, has no sympathy for patient care and good luck trying to get a referral from him. He is very unprofessional and not only would I not recommend him I hope he losses his practice. He is slow, ignorant and wants things done his way. STAY AWAY FROM HIM!!
Very knowledgable, very caring, a real "Mensch"

My wife and I are very lucky to be patients of Dr. Breite, a very smart doctor who is not an alarmist and who cares about his patients.
Missed a serious illness

Good for routine care but doesn't follow up. Missed a diagnosis of congestive heart failure by never thinking to send patient to a cardiologist for an evaluation after a diagnosis of very high cholesterol .
Dr. Breite is the best
Posted on July 30th, 2010
Without getting into personal details I want to share the fact that without Dr. Breite's attentiveness and old fashioned medical curiosity I would now be dead. What more can anyone say? When he feels that there is a serious problem he becomes obsessed with the situation and holds back nothing to assist the patient. I do not believe a more honest , straightforward and decent doctor can be found.
