Waste of time and waste of gas drove 40 mins to go to this speciality doctor. The lady up front was very rude with no bed side manner at all. First off when I entered,she asked me infront of a full lobby what was the reason for my visit. How embarrassing to tell her and a full lobby the reason for my visit. Then I was trying to explain to her how confusing the online system was. My appointment said 9 am google says the office doesn’t open up till 9. I got a text message for a automated system that told me to be there at 8:30 am. She told me she has been waiting for me since 8:15am and how I wasn’t supposed to listen to google or zdoc (the online system where I booked the appointment.)How confusing for a first time patient. I then explained to her that I did try to call the office 3 times between the times of 8-8:30 am to ask them what time I needed to be there. She told me we aren’t open so I am not going to answer the phone. Look at google reviews and the owners response.

You barely even meet the Doctor. Everything is done by the assistant. I might have seen the Doctor for maybe about 30 seconds...

Dr Zikra is so compassionate as well as thorough. She looks at all aspects of her patient’s health. Her expertise in her field has been a gift to me as her patient. Dr Zikra takes her time analyzing the lab and scan results

I went for diabetes control and she diagnosed me with polycystic ovarian syndrome just by looking at me. My OBGYN had already told me after tests there is nothing wrong with my reproductive system. Dr. Zikra prescribed me birth control pills and didn't care I told her janumet messes me up but still prescribed it anyways. Tech doesn't do blood pressure properly. I went for diabetes but she never checked my feet which really concerned me. I have to wait a month to do labs? It makes no sense.

The MD following my meeting did not recommend any followup tests. So I will be getting a second opinion. While she made a cursory exam of my throat feeling for any nodules etc, there was no tests requested as my neurologist wanted to r/o an autoimmune disease of the thyroid based upon elevated levels of Thyroglobulin Antibodies. (87 on most recent test)

Dr. Zikra is one of the rudest, unprofessional, non-caring doctors that I have EVER met.Fake smile gives the illusion of caring.Spent 5 min with me in an office visit after paying $250 out-of-pocket and about 60 seconds in a hospital consult.Hung up during a phone call I made for questions.Pushed away records and test results that I brought in for her to review.Said that I “looked” healthy.She sizes you up and diagnosis you just by looking at you.What a revolutionary way of healthcare, isn’t it?

when I first went to Dr Zikra I was so scared, She made me feel like it was OK to be worried; she made me feel at ease. When she told me I had Cancer I felt my world at an end; Dr Zikra told me too look at her and said " you will fight this with a bang Mrs Amanda" with her help I am cancer free and in remission. I LOVE YOU DR ZIKRA, you will always be in my heart.

I researched for a good Endocrinologist, and really read all the reviews. I am so glad I did. I found Dr. Zikra, and don't mind the drive to her office . She cares about her patients, explains well the treatment, and takes her time making sure I'm well informed about my meds, etc. Don't base your decision to choose a Dr. on how long you waited at the office, etc, it doesn't matter, what matters is to have a Dr. that cares! and is knowledgeable.
