Patient Comments (17)

Dr. Zieker performed cataract surgery in both my eyes. He is obviously highly skilled-- a complete pro- but he's also easy-going and pleasant to interact with. His entire staff was friendly and very helpful. The surgery itself was quick and almost completely painless. And now the world looks entirely different; I had no idea just how much I had been missing. For the first time in my life I have 20/20 vision in both eyes. I recommend Dr. Zieker in the highest of terms.

I saw Steven Clark, PA-C, for the first time on Tuesday, 4/11/17. He was fantastic. Steven answered all my questions; I learned new things & you can tell that the entire staff cares about the patients. I am also confident that I will like Dr. Zieker upon meeting him. Referred to Zieker Eye by my primary care doctor. This was the right decision & I am glad I switched. Without hesitation, I recommend this practice.
in Rexford, NY |
Dr. Zieker is a fantastic surgeon. He explained the cataract surgery in detail and spoke about the different options that were available. Knowing how nervous I was, Dr. Zieker made me feel at ease. He is a very compassionate doctor. I cannot say that about many other doctors who I have seen. I would definitely recommend Dr. Zieker.

My experience with Dr. Zieker is rated a 10 out of 10. The result of my cataract surgery is outstanding.
in Greenwich, NY |
I had cataract surgery in August of 2016. Dr. Zieker and Stephen Clark and their wonderful staff were so kind, caring and professional. I never felt rushed during the office visits. My questions were answered completely. The surgery itself was painless and my vision is so clear. I would certainly recommend Zieker Eye Opthalmology to anyone needing vision care.
in Saratoga Springs, NY |
Very professional staff. Great level of enthusiasm and knowledge. Information was clear and well documented so it was easy to follow. Surgical coordinator was very helpful, even setting an appointment with my primary doctor for a pre-operative physical. Once concern, which is problem all over, was one of the nurses at the surgical center spent a lot of time on their cell phone while patients, including myself, we're waiting for procedures.

I was referred to Dr. Zieker by my optometrist for cataract surgery. In my experience, I found Dr. Zieker to be knowledgeable, straight-forward, accommodating and above all an extremely skilled ophthalmologist. His efforts have greatly enhanced my eyesight for which I am very thankful and I have already recommended him to friends and family.

As a type 1 diabetic, professional care for my eyes is extremely important. After considerable research, I chose Dr. Zieker to be my opthalmologist. It was an excellent decision. His outstanding professional knowledge and skill is matched by his patience and follow-up service. I also found that the office environment was the very best. Customer service was given a high priority.
in Saratoga Springs, NY |
Dr. Zieker and Steven Clark, PCA were both excellent - they took time with me, got to know me, and fully explained and treated my condition. The office is also very nice, clean, comfortable, and efficient. No wait time at all, I was seen exactly on time for my appointment.
in Westport, CT |
Each time I visit the office, I'm almost sad to have my appointment end. My surgical experience was an outstanding success and each follow up appt. is like visiting family. I still get a pleasant surprise when I am called into the exam room in such a short wait time, too. I will never finish the book I'm reading, with this kind of great service. When I am with any of the medical staff, they to look at the whole person, not just the eyes. Wish they could take care of all my medical needs.
in Gansevoort, NY |
Dr. Zieker offers excellent, compassionate and knowledgeable care. Sadly, his office staff is rude and ignorant. Their lack of knowledge regarding insurance plan billing and payment requirements is appalling! Their rude and confrontational approach is astounding. The office staff will be responsible for the loss of patients if their offensive behaviors continue.
in Clifton Park, NY |
The BEST medical office experience yet!
in Ballston Spa, NY |
The office staff is rude and unaccomadating. They have no compassion or common sense.
in Ballston Lake, New York |
There aren't enough positive words to describe my entire experience with Dr. Zieker and his staff for my cataract surgeries (both eyes). Steve was beyond compassionate restoring health to my eyes. Dr. Zieker's gentle professionalism and medical explanation were both reassuring. My new vision is outstanding. The quality of my life is so improved. If you are looking for the best cataract surgeon, in my opinion, you should call Dr. Zieker's office.
in Saratoga Springs, NY |
Winter 2016 I was referred to Dr. Zieker by friends who had great experiences with Zieker Eye. Over time I had lost eyesight in one eye to severe cataract and my remaining eye was almost in the same condition. Dr. Zieker explained the surgery that was needed to restore my vision and helped me develop a plan that suited my needs. After the surgeries the follow up visits at his office with Steven Clark PA-C and the rest of the Zieker team were professional and informative. Vision Restored! Thanks
