Dr. Zito is one of those rare doctors that actually takes the time to LISTEN to his patients. He gets to the root of what works and what doesn't work for each patient. However, as a patient, please be educated, self-aware, and informed about your health care needs. You are ultimately responsible for your own well-being. Both physically and emotionally. Dr. Zito listens and I consider him to be an Evolved physician. Being very new to the Rochester area, and having played some very aggressive contact sports for over 25 years, Dr. Zito has made it a point to become educated on ex-athletes......and I could not thank him enough for that. My first 2 PCPs had no clue and did not care to become educated. I was educating them and they were MD's. Thank you Dr. Zito!!!!!!

Dr Zito has been our family primary care doctor ever since we moved to USA from UK, He and his staff has been are extremely caring and courteous to all our family. The main reason for my joining MDVIP is Dr Zito. He listens to me intently and take any inputs or analysis I have made of my health conditions and deals with them professionally following up with explanations and answers to questions arising from the discussion spending as much time is necessary. It is a pleasure to deal with Dr Zito and his friendly staff.

I was in the hospital and the on call cardiologist said that I was fine to be discharged even after my complaining of severe pain in my arm. The cardiologist blamed the pain on temporary nerve damage do to a failure to access my wrist for a angiogram. Dr. Zito came in five minutes later and within 5 more minutes a vascular team was in my room, then ultrasound. I was in the operating room within one hour and a half to have three blood clots removed. Vascular told me that if I had not had surgery then I would have lost my arm and perhaps my life. Dr. Zito caught the misdiagnosis because he listened to me and actually took the time to examine my arm which was ice cold.

Dr. Zito has been our family's physician for decades. He has always been a great diagnostician and dedicated doctor. He has taken wonderful care of us always, but since joining him at MDVIP, the accessibility and support he offers 24/7, just gives us such peace of mind. A perfect example of this was when I had surgery. Dr. Zito came to check on me during my stay at the hospital, but more than that, he was the one who helped me through a difficult situation over the weekend when my surgeon could not be reached. He made sure my pain was managed, and I was doing well, until the following week when I was able to check in with my surgeon. He called to see how I was doing, spoke with my husband, and made sure I knew I could call him at any time. I was so relieved to know if I needed him, he would be there for me. I'm happy to report that I'm fully recovered and back to walking, dancing, hiking, you name it! Be sure to see the picture of our daughter Katie and me hiking at Acadia National Park in Maine!

Dr. Gene Zito has been my doctor for over 30 years. He has been an MDVIP doctor for a short period of time but during that time he has saved my life. During an MDVIP routine physical he discovered an irregularity in my heart beat and sent me for an EcoCardiogram. I found myself in the hospital having heart surgery because I had Aortic Valve Stenous. I credit him for discovering the problem and saving my life. Recently, I was in Scottsdale Arizona on vacation and while I was there I had a stroke. I was frequently in contact with Dr. Zito back home in Rochester, NY. He advised me on what and where to go. He even sent me prescriptions to be filled. When I got back home, Dr. Zito and his staff took care of filing a claim with my medicare health insurance. This made is easier since this was a very difficulate time for me. I am very happy with Dr. Zito and his staff and I believe that because of his afflilition with MDVIP he has helped me to live a longer, healither and happier life.

Last December when I joined Dr Zito's practice I had quite a few health issues, the most significant being type 2 diabetes. He called me immediately as soon as he got the test results and called in a prescription for me to begin taking that same day. Within a week I was feeling better and got my wellness exam. All of my test numbers were messed up but he calmly told me that they would improve once the regimen he put me on started to work. It has now been over a year now and I am happy to say that my numbers have in fact all improved dramatically and I can honestly say that I feel better than I have in a very long time. When I first visited him I surely thought that I would not be around very long. His care has given me a positive feeling about the future and I have a new attitude now thanks to him. His immediate availability gives me much comfort in knowing that he is always there for me and will proactively work hard to prevent problems BEFORE they occur. Thank You Dr Zito!

I've been seeing Dr. Zito since we moved to Pittsford over 25 years ago. He is a good Doctor that cares about his patients, He has a great sense of humor to go along with his caring and concern about my health. We've been through a few of my difficult times and he and his staff have always been there ready willing and able to get things and done make things happen. To say I've squeezed myself onto his schedule a couple times because of some untoward situation in my life would be an understatement. But Dr. Zito and the team have always been there for me and I really appreciate the time and efforts they put into all their work. It's been a pleasure to be on the receiving end of His (and staff's) high quality medical service and dedication to his patients and their health and well-being. I have no problem recommending Dr. Zito to others. I trust we'll have many more years to develop our relationship as Patient to Dr. Thanks Dr. Z for all the great years of your dedication and service.

The primary reason I joined MDVIP is, I did not want to leave Dr Zito's practice. He has been my doctor ever since I moved to the US from UK. Dr Zito is not only my doctor he is my friend to whom I can talk about any subject including vegetable gardening and wonders of Italy. His wife Joanne's participation in the practice and his former staff makes it even more pleasurable to be part of his practice.

Dr. Zito helped me obtain multiple opinions on my heart condition that spared me a way too early open heart surgery operation for which I am eternally grateful. What better testimony is there than that!

Dr. Zito has been my physician for over 30 years. He is always respectful, friendly and open-minded. He respects my reluctance to take pharmaceuticals and admires my vegetarian lifestyle. My mother passed away last March and Dr. Zito gave her outstanding care for the last three years of her life. He would visit her in the assisted living facility whenever she was ill or had been hospitalized. This is outstanding caring that I am certain he would have shown regardless of MDVIP. This just enables him to take that kind of extra time. He is an outstanding human being and his wife is equally as gracious. We are truly fortunate to have him.
