    How was your appointment with Dr. Blitzer?

    Apr 28, 2020
    Dr. Blitzer has been treating me over a year now for my 2 cancers. He is the utmost professional with the most warm hearted and caring attitude. He explains everything in detail to me and my family members and is available to address any inquiries I have. His treatment plan for my condition is encouraging and he also ordered additional testing to ensure nothing was left out, which I sincerely appreciated. I don't feel I am in a rushed environment but a very calm and peaceful setting and his entire staff have been so very kind every time I visited the office. His office located at the Todd Cancer Pavilion in Long Beach is quite beautiful, serene and with ample space to ensure privacy. It is extremely clean and well maintained. I am very lucky and fortunate to have Dr. Blitzer as my oncologist and I could not recommend him highly enough.
