Your trust is our top concern.

We strive to keep the reviews trustworthy, honest & fair.

We monitor all reviews to ensure they comply with our guidelines and don’t include personal information, profanity, libel, defamation, harassment, obscenity or fraud.

All reviews are confirmed and audited before publication, and community members have the ability to flag inappropriate content for further review by our team.

Dr. Mark Blitzer and his RN, Marisa, are an extraordinary team. Whip smart, professional and attentive to every detail, not to mention very pleasant to be with. Dr. Blitzer implanted a Medtronic Linq Monitor in my chest at Yale-New Haven Hospital-Cardiac Division. Amazing technology, performs perfectly. I can recommend Dr Blitzer without reservation.
