in West Des Moines, Iowa |
The best dr hands down. He is the only dr that listens to how I feel and takes into account everybody has different needs. I suffer from MS which can be a struggle day and out. He has worked to help me cope with my MS fatigue and depression. Great patient/DR relationship is the most important aspect of medicine.

I've been seeing Dr. Z for over 20 years and he's always taken the time to ensure all of my questions have been answered.

I have been a patient with Dr. Z for 20 years. I like that he prescribes lower dose medications to start and then works up to stronger as needed. Also Dr. Z believes in holistic remedies, a "if it works do it" kind of attitude.
