Walked out of my appointment after waiting for an hour. I was sick of listening to the horrible women working for Dr Zaidman who where speaking horribly to a woman who didn’t realize that her insurance had lapsed and was simply trying to figure it out. In addition to the fact that the office felt like a factory makes me sorry that I didn’t read reviews earlier. He might be a good guy but his entire front of house needs retraining or new jobs.

My son went to Dr. Zaidman as he had a red spot in white of eye. He did not do any tests but said its a tumor - cancerous and would need surgery. He interrupted our examination to tell others on the phone and in his office they needed surgery for their problems. I was scared off. I went to a specialist for second opinion. He took a battery of tests, and said my son had a FRECKLE !!! no surgery needed!! Then he bills me for what the ins didn't pay which he was to have accepted from them!

This is the worst run office of all time. DR. Zaidman is great - his staff is God-Awful. Honestly these people need to be replaced with competent, knowledgeable staff.These woman couldn't run a child's lemonade stand.
