Patient Comments (2)
New York, NY |
I was referred to this doctor by a friend. He does not know how to take blood. I had to direct him. He left me in the exam room for 1 hour. He said to talk to his son about baseball. I didn't like the medication he prescribed so he threw me out of his office. He asked me how I know so much about medicine. He asked if I was a doctor. He also said who told me to come to his office anyway. I am very ill. I have pneumonia and he was confused as to how to treat. Me. He shouldn't treat humans or dogs

Dr. Tzanides is very thorough and knows his stuff. Other doctors wanted to prescribe a quick fix alternative medication without fully taking the time to figure out what was wrong with me. Wehn I moved to N.C for grad school, I was not pleased with the medical attention I was receiving out there. Once I moved back to NYC, I became his patient again. I'm constantly recommending my friends and family to Dr. Tzanides; Everyone loves the quality of care he provides.
