Gene M. Zito, MD

My Philosophy and Approach to Wellness...

As an internist in the Rochester, New York area with 35 years of knowledge and experience, I strive to meet the personal needs of each of my patients through a preventive healthcare model, sometimes compared to concierge care.

Located in Pittsford, New York, my primary care practice serves patients in Monroe County, as well as locations between Buffalo and Syracuse and south of Rochester. I am affiliated with Rochester General Hospital. If hospitalized, I will visit you and coordinate your care with specialists at Strong Memorial, Highland and Unity hospitals. I regularly collaborate with the leading specialists in cardiology, neurology, psychiatry and geriatrics.

As a private internal medicine physician, my patients receive same-day or next-day visits in an unhurried, relaxed office where I can listen, diagnose and help you achieve your optimal health through wellness and prevention. I am never too busy to see you, and that includes house calls. I am just a phone call away, including evenings and weekends. I believe a very strong doctor-patient relationship is essential in achieving the best plan for healthy living and prevention of illness.

I believe that diet and exercise are essential components in achieving good health – and I practice what I preach.  I enjoy organic gardening and exercise regularly by swimming laps. My staff is very welcoming, efficient and will personally answer your calls and questions. I invite you to call my office and allow my staff to arrange a complimentary face-to-face office visit.  Let me understand your health goals and show you how my proactive and personalized approach to healthcare will improve your life.
