I’ve been a patient for over 7 years. He has always taken his time to address my fears and concerns. Emails or calls be back in a timely matter. He has made himself available at all time and has really helped me progress positively in my illness.

I have used Dr. Zaider for a few years and the Prospect Medical Office for many years. I would recommend Dr. Zaider to others, except the office staff always cops a put-upon attitude. Staff follow-up on important matters is subpar. I showed up for an appointment and the doctor was apparently away on vacation. I provided another doctor's instructions to staff that were never relayed to Dr. Zaider. I was promised a callback that never came.... The list is long.
