I went to the office for a chronic sinus infection that has not been improved by three rounds of antibiotics. Dr. Ziffra told me that I could either take the extremely potent antibiotic with a wide array of significant potential side effects that he was recommending or he "is of no use to me." How about trying to figure out what's actually causing the problem instead of threatening me to either take the medication or leave the office, especially since antibiotics haven't worked so far?

This man was the worst doctor I have ever had the displeasure of seeing. I would not recommend him to ANYONE. While it was easy to make an appointment, actually interacting with the doctor was horrendous. I came to Dr. Ziffra for a second opinion about a chronic sinus issue, and nearly walked out mid appointment. Not only was this man pompous and condescending, but he actually had the nerve to ask, where I got my medical degree. Look at other review sites, this man does not deserve 5 stars.
