in Rising Sun, MD |
Dr. Zhu is by the most compassionate and caring physician I have had during my long and at times frustrating period of dealing with my years of being treated for long term chronic pain management. He takes the time with you to get to know you and become familiar with your specific condition and needs. He is understanding and truly seems to care about your individual treatment for chronic pain. He listens to your feelings and offers new treatment modalities of pain management.

Went to see him for a second opinion and was actually referred to a different doctor they said I had to see Dr. Zhu. He never examined me at all just told me that I was fat and that was the problem. So when I asked him if I lost weight that would fix my back issues he responded NO you will just have to deal with the pain. Then he wrote a prescription for a drug I told him I already tried and it didn't work. Only see this Doctor if you want to waste your money

in Elkton, Md |
Dr Zhu has been my physician for a few years now and has performed quite a few procedures on my back, everyone successful. Since my condition is inoperable he had been able to ease my pain considerably. I hope he stays with Midatlantic Spine as my physician for a long time.

in Newark, DE |
I've had nothing but the best care from Dr. Zhu. He is always attentive and listens to me whenever there is a an issue. A doc that you can depend on for the best care!! I would recommend him to everyone. Definitely top notch
in Galena, Maryland |
I spent too much money and time with this doctor who did not fix the problem. First: he would not listen to me. Second: he either chose not to diagnose the problem from the CAT scan or he didn't know how to. Third: He caused me more pain than when I went to see him in the first place. Here's a clue any foot drop patient needs to go straight to surgery not masking pain with shots in the wrong place! The whole place is set up to make money instead of fixing your back.
in Newark, De |
Dr Zhu takes a conservative approach to managing the pain I have from degenerative disc disease. He has recommended non surgical procedures that my previous doctor did not. He is very deliberate in managing the cause of the pain not the symptom itself. While my condition is one that is managed, not cured, I have experienced 30% more relief since seeing Dr. Zhou with fewer less powerful drugs to manage the pain. I recommend highly

Dr. Zhu is an extremely caring and thorough doctor. I have know Dr. Zhu for several years and he always has the utmost concern and consideration for his patients. He is careful about the medication perscribed, taking into consideration gender, age and physical condition of his patients. Dr. Zhu tells people to call for any health problem one has. I will continue to go to Dr. Zhu for as long as I can. He has helped me so much and has made recommendations for additional services available.

Dr. Zhu is very professional to treat my pain.
in Cecil County, MD |
It was so horrible he shouldn't be able to hold a medical license..
in Wilmington |
He was RUDE! Constantly interrupted me while I sat there holding back tears trying to ask relevant questions. I was forced to see him for the first time in my ten years at that practice because my doctor moved and I left there in tears feeling humiliated and less of a human being! He was scheduled to do a procedure on me the following week but after looking at my MRI for a whole 2 seconds said it probably wouldn't help and when I asked what should I do then, he said I can't tell you that.
