Dr Z brags about his awards, true, but he has earned the right because he is the BEST. You might wait a long time in his office because he actually spends time learning everything he can to determine the proper treatment. And if you ever have an emergency he will find a way to fit you in, that is why i don't complain about waiting. I have been seeing him for 30 years and my only fear is that he might retire before i die!

I am very difficult case to diagnosis. Test results non conclusive however dr. Zalkowitz stood fast, referred me to proper specialists and did not loose faith in my complaints of illness no matter what the results stated. Yes some appointments there were long waits but when time came his attention was undivided. I appreciate all his efforts on this long journey.

Dr Zalkowitz started a treatment plan for me 6 years ago. He explained in detailed, answered my questions. Dr Zalkowitz was very caring, kind and sympathetic to my RA. With his expertise I now live a more normal life, minimal pain and the ability to join in physical activity. I am so thankful to have found this doctor. I highly recommend Dr Zalkowitz.

Much to long to wait to see the doctor and no bedside manner. Seems to think he knows everything and brags about all the awards he has won. It’s really not about the patient
