Worst Weight Loss Practice
I went to Dr. Zisman and his wife's practice with a friend and it was one of the worst experiences I've had in any weight loss program. You consistently waited and never received responses from emails when you sent questions or your weight check-ins. In my first meeting with the nutritionist, they asked me to come early to their office in Doral (an hour from my home) and I waited an additional hour in the waiting room. Once I was finally let in, I expressed that I didn't feel like I was losing weight fast enough and they then responded that I must not be doing enough, although I had my fitness pal app which showed all my exercises and food plans, showing I was following the regimen. I expressed my concerns to the nutritionist and brought examples of foods and plans that I wanted to check if they were alright and she kept pushing them away as unimportant. Overall, I was ignored and made to feel like my progress was my fault. If anyone with body issues knows, it's a complex situation. I

Went to my initial appointment with the nutritionist Andrea to make sure they would be able to accommodate my food restrictions before I paid for the 3 month plan. She assured me it wouldn't be a problem and was quick to charge me for the 3 month plan, plus thier teas. Then 2 weeks later I had my visit with Dr. Zisman which told me the complete opposite of what Andrea the nutritionist told me 2 weeks prior. Mind you they already got paid for the 3 month plan. Then it took 4 weeks, a bunch of phone calls and several emails to finally get them to send me my personalized plan. Due to the delay I figured my plan would be extended an extra month since the delay was on thier side not mine. Turns out now they claim my 3 month plan expired because it starts the day you pay. I have sent several emails explaining that the delay was on thier end but good luck getting response. I ended up losing a month of the program, medication, and a final visit with the nutritionist and the doctor. Their plans

Dr. Zisman has been my doctor for over two years and I have never been happier with an endocrinologist before. What I like most about having him as a doctor is that he is very personable and genuinely cares for his patients' wellbeing. He is very well prepared and his career achievements are highly impressive. It is always a pleasure to visit Dr. Zisman and knowing that my health is in good hands. I feel very lucky to have found Dr. Zisman and hope I have the same luck finding other health providers.

I am very happy and thankful to have Dr Zisman as my physician for quite a number of years now. He is an extremely knowledgeable professional an extraordinary kind human being who makes me fee like a person worth devoting time to. He attentively listens to my concerns, even when they are not within his specially, and always has an explanation ready, an answer to my problem or, when he deems it necessary, he personally calls another specialist to expedite a visit. If I needed to chose just one doctor for all my conditions it would be Dr Ariel Zisman, without hesitation! My Blessings and deepest thanks for always being there for me! His staff is courteous, profesional and perfectly bilingual. To top it all, that new office is just spectacularly impecable and beautiful! Congratulations.

I love this doctor. I have been seeing him for at least 10 years. He is not on my insurance plan but he is worth every dime I pay. Dr. Zisman is a pedigree doctor who is thorough and who will work with you on your treatment. He is easy to talk to and you can trust him. You are not pushed in and out of the office. He takes his time and makes you feel like you are important to him.

Dr. Zisman has cancel 3 out of 4 appointments. I had cancer decades ago, but it seems i really need to adjust a hormone, and trying to schedule an appointment it’s almost impossible. I even waited for 3 months and when I arrived they told the doctor wasn’t there or the system failed and my appointment got cancelled or something different. I just want him to read my studies results and it has been impossible.

Very bad experience with my 15 yr old daughter. On the first day she was asked to see a video with a group. I was told I could not attend. Video was in Spanish and she did not understand It. When it came down to the nutrionist who happens to be his wife, she was rude, cancelled our very first appointment and then said the next appointment had to be in Aventura instead of near Corel Gables where I live. We scheduled a phone appt and she missed that too! Wasted $ Daughter disappointed!
