Dr. Zisman is among the best professional caregivers you will find in South Florida. He is very intelligent. He listens to his patients, and relates to their concerns. I am fortunate to have discovered his practice.
Dr. Zisman is a wonderful doctor. He has amazing bed side manners. With him , you are motivated to go the extra mile to take control of your health. He cares and that makes it powerful in an individual that deals everyday with a very dominant chronic disease. He listens, he puts himself in your shoes and he really legitimately fights with you to make things a little better.

Dr Zisman is a very good doctor, thorough & very knowledgeable. My negative is with his office staff, rather immature & a lack of respect for the patients time. Even knowing travel time from me leaving work early & calling ahead they would tell me everything was on time. Then get to the office & have to wait over an hour. I left because he did not seem to have an regard to this fact that was reoccurring.

in Ft Lauderdale, FL |
Dr. Zisman, more then anything else, authentically cares about you as a patient and treats you genuinely as an individual. He is emphatic, intelligent and flexible in his diagnoses. I have recommended him to friends. Additionally I have asked him to refer me to other doctors who I found also to be very genuine people. In the US health system, these doctors are harder and rarer to find. I'm grateful to Dr Zisman.
in Miami Gardens, FL |
I like the fact that Dr. Zisman spends time with me, and his concern for me, not rushing out the room.
in Miami, FL |
Very professional. He goes out of the way to explain everything and answer all questions. He is one of the Doctors that is not constantly checking his watch. Thanks to his treatment, I was able to control my type II diabetes with minimum medication. And with his weight loss recommendations, I lost over 40 lbs and completely beat Type II diabetes.

Hi my name is Juanita and I've been a patient of Dr. Ziisman for less than 1 year. I found Dr. Zisman because I was no longer satisfied with my present Dr. You see after 16 years of being a diabetic I came to realize that My previous Endronoligist doctor visits had become such a quick pat on the back now get out of my office on to the next patient thing. Guaranteed satisfaction!!!! Dr. Zisman is the best

Almost 9 years ago I had a big cyst on my thyroid , I was traveling to Australia and he did the small surgery on Thanksgiving day so I could travel safely . Since then I see him once a year and he has become my main doctor , he listens patiently and ask questions. I highly recommend him.
Truly excellent doctor. He is very knowledgeable and sincerely cares about his patients and what is best for them.

Amazing!!! A true gem of a doctor. Best endocrinologist And caring Doctor
in Pembroke Pines, FL |
Truly surprise for the lack of cooperation from the Doctor and worst of all, his front office staff. After I paid in full, they have not fulfill the agreement, nor the Doctor returns calls and/or emails.
in Ft Lauderdale, FL |
The wait did take a bit but well worth it. Very dedicated doctor and friendly staff. Might be a little too busy for such a small office but the care speaks for itself.
Hialeah, FL |
(hyperthyroid) the medical assistant on staff was so rude and nasty. now they trying to bill me for a claim that they did not submit to my insurance. I found this out when there own assistant admitted to me at the time when she called me to tell me that. now they call me months later to let me know that they reported me to the collection agency I guess it was easier to file to a collection agency.instead of doing there job and making a claim to my insurance
