What People Say About Dr. Christopher Zieker, MD

My experience with Dr. Zieker and his staff was outstanding. I had a few extra challenges to my surgery including extremely poor vision even before the need for cataract surgery. Dr. Zieker made the right choices in treating my eyes individually and the result is that I see better than I have in decades. I love the freedom of going without glasses except for reading. The entire staff is caring and wonderful. Thanks!!!!!!

Dr. Zieker and his staff are phenomenal. He completed my cataract surgeries within 2 weeks of each other and there was absolutely no discomfort. Dr. Zeiker is personable knowledgeable and confident. I would highly recommend him.

The care provided by Dr. Zieker, Steven Clark, PA-C, the technicians and front desk staff was outstanding. This practice is patient focused and the staff consistently display concern for the patient's needs. My eye examinations were comprehensive and details of these examinations were explained clearly. Follow up treatments were also explained fully. I would highly recommend this practice. I plan to have my future cataract surgery performed by Dr. Zieker.

I like Dr. Zieker because he is highly qualified to do his job and because he's a very nice, caring person. Dr. Z explains everything clearly. He is patient and lets me ask all my questions. Dr. Z performed cataract surgery on both my eyes. There was no pain during or after the surgery. I think Dr. Z is passionate about his work and takes pride in doing an excellent job.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.
