Dr Ziegler was awesome very caring and patient
Cocoa, FL |
I have a hand injury and this guy has jerked me around ,I have a Commercial Driver License, Doctor Knowing that I have Nerve damage feels its ok to Drive with one hand and the hack gave me a shot which wont work, postponing the surgery I have since made appointments with other Doctors, pissed off you bet, it took a argument just to get a test done., You will be sorry using this guy, all I can say is if he acts like this I'm glad I'm going to someone else for surgery .

While I had to wait almost 45 minuets past my appointment time Dr. ziegler was thorough and very carefully explain his findings. I was totally pleased and reassured that his diagnosis was 100% true.

Dr. Ziegler's office would not even make an appointment with me unless I gave them my social security number over the phone! I said I was not comfortable giving my social security number over the phone, but would give it when I came in to the office. The office staff person refused this reasonable suggestion and adamantly insisted no social security number, no appointment. This is unethical and possibly illegal! I never got an appointment.

Terrible ! Swollen elbow off and on for over a year. I asked not to be x-rayed as I thought I had soft tissue problem which x-ray wouldn't pick up and with my insurance I had to pay for all out of pocket. Doctor says no magic wand for this, no shot, wear a sleeve and keep taking the Naproxen your GP gave you, maybe talk to someone in the gym that's knowledgeable? Really that it ? He's mad I questioned the x-ray ! Yrs ago I had shoulder swelling diff Doc gave me shot never another issue

Dr. Ziegler and staff are terrific. He takes the time to explain condition and doesn't rush to recommend surgery.
in Titusville, FL |
Dr. Ziegler came highly recommended, and after a visit with him, I was certain that my choice was absolutely correct. Not only did he listen to my concerns and answer my questions, he chose to dig deeper into issues instead of making assumptions. He has a great bedside manner, which is hard to find these days. The office staff is friendly and the nurses are well informed.

Excellent Doctor, fine patient skills, thorough, very knowledgeable, affable, happy to answer questions
in Melbourne, FL |
Doctor Ziegler explained my condition and the recommended treatment and explained every step of the way. With the injection to treat he explained how long it would take to be effective and if it did not help what the next steps would be. Fortunately the injection and brace worked to remove the pain and allow my thumb to move freely again. On my follow up visit the Doctor explained the length of time we hoped to have relief. When to call for any further followups.
in Viera, FL |
The entire office staff is so nice. They are all very pleasant on the phone when gathering information and when you arrive, as well as Xray nurse and Dr. nurse. The best group of office woman I have ever come across . The Dr. is also very welcoming and friendly, explains everything so you can understand what your problem is and what the options are. all in all I would give Dr. Zieglar and his entire staff a 10. I wish every office would hire the same type of staff .
