I am proud to be a patient of Dr.Zito. He has guided me thru my 77 years. I would never,ever think of leaving his practice. My only concern is that he will retire. Recently after receiving my latest A1C test, Dr. Zito called my home to congratulate me with the new and much lower number. I was not at home and he left a message on the answer service. However,he wanted to inform me in person. Dr.… See more
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.
