Dr. Drizin took time to explain my condition, how he was going to treat it, why he chose the plan of action, and went over xrays and scans. He was thorough, kind, and encouraging on this my first visit. I recommend him highly.

When my 94-year-old Mother was experiencing breathing difficulties following a cold, I went in search of a pulmonologist with a high rating on Health Grades, and found Dr. Gary Drizin. From the time we set foot in his office, we were treated as though my Mom had been a long-standing patient. From start to finish, Dr. Drizin's professionalism was astounding! He knew exactly what her problem was, setup a treatment plan, and now she's breathing better than ever! Thank you so much Dr. Drizin!

I came to Dr. Drizin last February sick as a dog from three months of pneumonia. Not only did he pull me out of a state where I couldn't eat, drink or walk, he did it a very kind and gentle way. A wonderful doctor.
