Highly recommend. Very personable and professional. Helped my husband thru a difficult time treating a complicated toe ulcer. It eventually needed amputation. Came thru the procedure well with no complications. Explains everything clearly.

Dr. Zager takes his time with his patients and answered all my questions in laymen terms. He is friendly and has fantastic bedside manners. I struggled with bilateral plantar fasciitis. He gave me home exercises, instead of sending me to a therapist. After wearing a cast for a bit and doing the exercises, it healed. The reason I can't give him 5 stars is because of his wait time, which is ABSOLUTELY RIDICULOUS! You will consistently have to wait at LEAST an hour to be seen. Sometimes longer.

Pleased with the care i received. However, he is consistently late. How can a doctor be an hour late for a 10 am appointment?

He is unprofessional and does not care about his patients. He has poor follow-through and did not seem to take the time to work with me or help me. He is a bad doctor with little to no real knowledge about helping patients. He was arrogant and showed little concern to the rights of his patients, followup exams, or providing any helpful information. Going to him was a complete waste of time. Get your fax machine fixed!
