A mysterious gastrointestinal ailment has kept me sidelined for three months now. Dr. Zito has followed me closely, been encouraging, and ready and able to help with advice, prescriptions, and a home visit. Once this coronavirus episode is over, he will further explore my treatment with an appropriate hospital. He is not going to give up. I appreciate his concern and interest.
My Philosophy and Approach to Wellness...
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.

Testimonials from patients of Dr. Zito
We have been patients of Dr. Zito for many, many years. He has always been an amazing doctor and diagnostician, but on many occasions he has really been a friend. Being part of an MDVIP practice, Dr. Zito has been able to devote even more time to each of us as patients. I will never forget him coming to our home when my dad was so ill. He comforted us, and spoke frankly with my dad,… See more
I am a 80year old patient of Dr.Zito. The doctor has watched over me like I was his father. After my latest A1C test he wanted to share the good news. The doctor was unable to contact me by phone so he drove to my office to give me the results. I was delighted to see Dr.Zito was as excited as I was. Thank you doctor for taking such excellent care of me.
Dr. Zito provides the best medical care we could hope for. His ability to listen, and then help is second to none. He is the definition of a good doctor. Thank you for your dedication and care.

I have been lucky enough to be a patient of Dr. Zito's for over 40 years. He has helped me so many different times in my life that I could not pick out one specific example, ( there are so many). As a diagnostic physician he is outstanding, I would not be alive today without his advice. He is not only my doctor he's my friend.
Three years ago I had the privilege of meeting Dr. Zito in the cafeteria of the hospital my husband was a patient at. I have known Dr. Zito from when he was a young man . As a friend of the family I was fortunate to watch him grow into what he is today a great Doctor who truly cares for his patients.
At that point of my life when my husband took ill, I was at a breaking point, not… See more

This man is smart ! Im proud to say he is my Doctor :)
Dr Gene Zito is a very passionate Dr. My mother is 94 years old and he treats her professionally and very knowledgeable for her age. He is always there when I call. When my mother was in the hospital he visited her and was very concerned about her welfare. The hospital doctor even made a comment to me that he liked Dr Zito. I think I call him too much in regards to my mother ! However he never… See more
