Dr. Citrin is awesome. My husband saw him for a second opinion and he listens! He treated my husband immediately and did what needed to be done and didn't delay. He not only took care of his cardiac issues, he took into consideration how it affected him emotionally. You won't regret choosing him!

dr citrin saved my dads life about 3 years ago. New office is great. I can spend more time with him and I feel he is a happier man.

Simply one of the most caring and genuine doctors I've ever had. His kindness and caring gives you the sense that you are his most important patient when he is attending you. He makes you feel like you're a part of his family. The sparkle in his eyes as he speaks to you shows how much he loves his work. I am so blessed to have found him. I 100% recommend him to anyone looking for a great Doctor!

Love Dr citrin and his staff. I recommend everyone to him. Love his new office and staff.
in Daphne, Al |
Love Dr.Citrin and his entire staff. I actually was a patient of one of his old partners. I heard so many great things about him so I decided to change cardiologist. The wait time at his new office is wonderful. I have more time to talk to him and he doesn't rush me in and out. I believe he has a Dr. Larry that works with him, I think he's new so needs a little experience, got a few of my meds mixed up.
