Dr. Norman Zuckerman gave me a unmedicated bone marrow biopsy despite me telling him that I was not ready to begin the procedure. He ripped my pants down exposing my backside to a room full of people on the other side of the door and began the procedure without saying a word to me. I had to ask the nurse several times to close the door and they were my last line of defense and did not stand up for me knowing that he was doing wrong. He even began singing in Spanish as I was screaming in pain during my bone marrow biopsy he is a horrible doctor that should never be allowed to practice medicine. he didn’t leave the room before telling me don’t worry I did a good job and walked out. The nurse who supervised the procedure looked at the other nurse and said well I was going to tell him that she wasn’t medicated but he doesn’t like us to talk. I was so traumatized I just decided then and there that I would not fight my cancer that if this was the standard of care for cancer patient I’m done

Dr. Norm was extremely caring, personable, and professional and efficient during my treatment for breast cancer. He remembered the names of my pets and asked me about them during the appointment. I recommended him my friend with Ovarian cancer and she was also extremely pleased. I am very grateful for the care Norm gave my treatment, his consideration of my grief at being sick, and am pleased with the outcome of being well and out of treatment. I would highly recommend him to anyone!

Dr Zuckerman is a very busy doctor who takes care of many, many patients. It may be true he is not the best communicator, but if you ask him a direct question he will answer you, however he expects you to do your homework and learn about your illness. He cared for my husband 30 years ago this year and I must say if I were to need an oncologist today, Dr zuckerman would be the first I would call.
