Best doctor I've EVER had. He's knowledgable. He treats the causes rather than the symptoms.

Refused to give a consultation prior to being hired. insisted on a full physical, Very expensive. Insurance only allows one per year. Stuck with the physical with Zeiger even if he is not hired. It took a week for his staff to respond to an initial request for an appointment.
