My experience with Dr. Markovitz was wonderful. He is so knowledgeable, professional and goes above most doctors in his patient care. I had a CT scan at a local testing center at 11:00 this morning and received a personal call from Dr Markovitz just four hours later.

In this world of quick Dr. Visits and confusion, Dr. Markovitz is a wonderful tropical island. Warm, friendly and caring, he really puts in the time to understand your entire history in great detail. I can't recommend him enough. And what surprised me, even more,? was his follow up. One year later after my symptoms had subsided, he wanted to do a follow up to make sure all was as it should be. He is a rare wonderful caring man you'll love.

He's a very kind and thorough doctor. He takes his time and is meticulous to make sure he knows all your health details so he can make a determination on your needs. He communicates very well and keeps you involved in every aspect of his decision making. He has gone above and beyond with me. Finding a doctor you trust is very important and he is that person for me. His staff and nurses are great and very helpful and go above and beyond. Would definitely recommend.

I have been seeing Dr. Markovitz for about 8 years. He is the most incredibly caring doctor. He spends much more time than I expect with me, going over what has been happening with my lung health. The other doctors I see spend much less time. Recently, he has been giving me samples of medications that might help my mild COPD and has been generous with the quantities and variety. I was impressed with his care after I had a collapsed lung and his ongoing care. He gets my highest recommendation.

DR. MARKOVITZ IS A WONDERFUL PERSON AND AN AWESOME DOCTOR. HE LEAVES NO STONE UNTURNED IN ORDER TO HELP HIS PATIENTS. I HAD BREATHING PROBLEMS AND HE HAD ME HAVE MANY LUNG SCANS TO DETERMINE WHY I WAS HAVING TROUBLE WITH BREATHING. I AM NOW WORKING OUT AND WALKING AT LEAST FIVE TIMES A WEEK. BETWEEN HIS GREAT KNOWLEDGE AND WONDERFUL ATTITUDE I HAVE LEARNED MUCH OF INFORMATION ABOUT PULMONOLOGY. I HIGHLY RECOMMEND HIM BECAUSE HE ALWAYS GOES THE EXTRA MILE.
