      Dr. Itkin is the Best Physician for Infectious Deceases. He is very through in his exams and treatment plans. He goes the extra mile to help his patients. He has kept me out of the hospital and living a relatively healthy life.

      I was immediately greeted by staff and checked in. My wait time was minimal and most important was given the time needed to have my issues addressed. I left relieved, with a return appointment and time that worked for me ... highly recommend.

      Dr. Itkin is a brilliant physician as evidenced by his treatment of my two very unusual knee infections, each of which occurred years after a knee replacement. His treatment plan always included multiple options in the event the chosen one caused problems which it occasionally did. His care was critical to my current very good recovery.

      I learned that I had multiple staph infections after my coronary surgery. Dr. Itkin watched over me for nearly six months until the infections finally subsided. We are indebted to him and his friendly but professional attitude. Yes, we would definitely recommend him to others.

      My PCP referred me to Dr. Itkin in autumn 1998. I am now in the middle of my twentieth year of his attentive, informed care. My quality of life, healthy yet with a chronic condition, is a testament to Dr. Itkin's time and talent. He listens and takes the time during every visit to HEAR how I am feeling and provides thoughtful Rx or suggestions for healthy options be they exercise, diet or other measures I can do to maintain and/or improve my health and to compliment his care.

      Looking for a great doctor in every way, Dr Itkin is the best. Been my specialist since 1989, I think that alone tells you the kind of doctor he is.

      I have never called the office without receiving friendly, and immediate, care. The office staff, the medical assistants, and the doctor always treat me as if I am the only patient they have. This is very much appreciated by me.

      I’ve worked with Dr. Itkin for about 8 years or so, as he continues to help me through a very egnimatic diagnosis which has included working with numerous other doctors, way too many antibiotics and procedures. Through it all, he continues to spend time and care about me, how I am feeling, while always creating a clear cut plan to follow each visit. He is my ‘quarterback’, and for that I am most grateful!

      Dr. Itkin is probably the best doctor I've ever had. He is knowledgeable & thorough. He has a great bedside manner, using both kindness and humor. His staff is always spot on, especially Jaime his nurse. I have been his patient for over twenty years and I recommend him without hesitation.

      Dr Itkin was brought in to see my when I was admitted to hospital. He said he would help to find out why I keep getting these infections. He is great and caring and hasn't given up on me. I trust him and his staff! It's been a long road, but he doesn't quit! That's the kind of Dr he is

      I've been seeing Dr. Itkin since the late 1980's and I just hope he doesn't decide to retire anytime soon. You will never feel rushed or hurried through any visit with Dr. Itkin. He encourages any and all questions one might have regarding their health care or any other issues affecting them. His entire staff really do care about each patient and their care. If you want to feel like "family", then try this practice for yourself.
