      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.
