Saw him in the hospital and he worked very hard to figure out what was causing the shaking in my right hand. I am very sorry to be losing him. I hope I find another doctor who cares as much as he did.

I found out today that he is retiring on June 30th, 2019. I have been a patient for over 20 years; he is a fantastic doctor.

This was the first visit for my husband and I...because he is an older doctor. I like his approach. He has very good bedside manners, he appears to be very sensitive to his patients, in spite of the number of years he has been in practice, he also appears to have a humble nature and it appears he DOES NOT have a "know-it-all" attitude. He loves to teach (he had two interns accompanying him), which is such an admirable quality. He seems to be very knowledgeable, confident and thorough.

I had my first visit with Dr. Z on yesterday and I absolutely adore him along with his wonderful staff. I look forward to him taking excellent care of me, and his bedside manner is impeccable. I would and am recommending him to my Grandmother. Thanks, Dr. Z see you soon!
