Philosophy

"I try to take care of each patient in a personal way, as if they were my close friend or family. I want to bring the most up-to-date surgical and endoscopic treatments to my patients. I also want to help them navigate what has become a very complex and often impersonal medical health care system."

Dr Vitale barely ask me any questions. I had more to tell him. He talked a lot. He gave me Zenpen, which is harmful for me, since I can't digest pork. I read the medication info on drugs.com, thankfully. Called the office and was told to immediately stop taking it. Again, if Dr Vitale had asked me more questions I wouldn't have been in that situation.

Dr. Gary Vitale saved my life over ten years ago. He was the one who diagnosed my problem. I was referred to different doctors over several years who had no idea what was causing my symptoms. I would and have recommended Dr. Vitale to friends and family over the past ten years and I will continue to do so. The office personnel are terriffic.
