Seem annoyed and frustrated to do telemedicine appointment, was frustrated trying to figure out technology and was too annoyed to listen to any of my questions/symptoms and told me he is just going to do lab work, and if labwork is normal he can't help. I was very disappointed bc I had been waiting to see a specialist for a long time. Terrible bedside manner

I was a borderline case of hypothyroidism. I was cold all the time and felt no energy. I expressed my concerns repeatedly to my primary care doctor and frankly he didn't care at all. Dr Eitan however conducted more tests on me and got me on synthroid after diagnosing me. I am feeling significantly better now. It's not an exaggeration to say that Dr Eitan saved my life. It turns out your metabolism is important and will affect every aspect of your day to day life. Who would've known?

Dr. Eitan has provided me with the highest quality of care for over 35 years. I do not go on the internet, but feel compelled to share how he has been there every step of the way as my health issues changed as I got older. I drive an hour and half when I need a secure and trusted opinion. He has caught issues others have missed on so many occasions. His humility always touches me. He caught a sound in my husband's heart last year that 7 specialists missed. It saved his life. Thank you!!!

Dr. Eitan has been our family doctor for years and he does not practice the production line medicine you will find nowadays in many places. He will sit with you like a trusting friend listening and explaining the problem and how to help.

I have been a Type 1 diabetic for 32+ years and today at my "doctor" visit, I was told that I am NOT a true Type 1 diabetic. WHAT??? I was diagnosed on Christmas day, 1985 at the age of 9...I HAVE TYPE I DIABETES. When I requested to go back on the insulin pump because I was under much better control when I was on it, I was told NO! This "doctor" is a quack. I WILL NEVER see him again. I would rather die than die in agony from him treating me! I am so disappointed!
