Terrible experience over MDLive. Dr. Chopra was rushed and only pretended to listen. Then, he "prescribed" Over The Counter strength vitamin. When MDLive rep contacted the Dr to rectify his non-prescription, Dr Chopra refused to rectify.

I have been a patient of Dr. Belitsis for 10 years after I had some problems after gastric bypass surgery. I have had so many procedures done by him and he is the best. His care and concern are unmatched. I have never felt as comfortable with a doctor as I do with Dr. Belitsis!

Sandy Coleman May 09 2020

Review for Dr. Belitsis

I had major emergency surgery by Dr Yalamanchili with an excellent result. He continues to manage all issues and concerns no matter how small. Given my goal to get back to tennis and the gym, he directed and monitored months of PT. He constantly demonstrates his commitment to overall patient care
