I had a horrible infection in my nose. Dr. Zald examined me and gave me options and then helped me decide on the best treatment. I think what other reviewers percieve as poor bedside manner is actually just his mild-mannered personality. (He does not have the typical type-A doctor personality.) He was very compassionate and actually apologized for my pain as he performed the needed procedure. Then he called me (on a Saturday!) to tell me the results of the culture he had taken so he could reassure me that I was on the right medication. My infection healed up quickly thanks to his skill/knowledge. Great doctor/great experience.

I saw Dr. Zald for a strange growth inside my nostril. He was thorough in his examination and very reassuring. He took samples for biopsy and called me with the benign results a few days before I had expected to hear from him. He then removed the growth and was absolutely meticulous in getting good margins to reduce the chance of it growing back. I could not have had a more positive experience - his staff are lovely as is he.

I had sent medical reports well in advance and not only had he not read them, but he didn't even know about them. Thus, much time was wasted in the office discussing things, that would not have been necessary if he had read my medical report ahead of time. The conversation seemed to run in circles with no real solution. I was billed over $900. His bedside manner was poor and I question his medical problem-solving skills.

Well, not to impressd. He seems to be to pensive to be a doctor... He seems not to be able to mqke his decisions about what to do for your for care. He is nice enough, but he keeps you in his office forever. I was there for two and a hours! Only to be told to use saline spay in my nose because I use oxygen! I must say that is staff is excellent!

I have seen Dr Zald three times concerning a nodule on my thyroid which was found incidentally while being x-rayed and scanned after a car accident. He seemed very personable and knowledgeable. We discussed options and which way we wanted to go. He was respectful and in agreement to my suggestions and concerns. My wait times were average to fast. I liked him and the options. Returned a year later and everything was the same as far as satisfation.

My experience with Dr. Zald was quite different from many of his reviewers. I came to him with a severe post nasal drip as the aftermath of a cold. I only had a 10-minute wait to see him. He listened carefully to my symptoms and prescribed a nasal spray which worked well. His follow up with me as a patient was very thorough, among the best of any of my physicians. He carefully outlined a follow-up course of action should the spray not work which it did. I am very satisfied with him .

This Dr. Is a complete joke. His bedside manner is the worst, I had ever witnessed. I can't believe he had a med student with him. What a bad example. I waited over 45 minutes only to be seen for less than 5 min and not one bit of info about my ear pain. He must remember me calling him a WEIRDO!

I had a horrible experience. Dr. Zald caused me great pain and had zero bedside manner. I told him twice to stop because he was probing so deeply in my infected ear. He didn't even tell me it was infected until I told him to stop to ask him what he was doing. I plan to report him to the medical board.

He hurt my ear unbelievably and caused bleeding..... all to remove ear wax. His "bedside manner" is non-existent, in my way of thinking. In good conscience, I would not recommend him.

Terrible, terrible bedside manner. Didn't listen to symptoms. Started scoping me within one minute of being there, without even asking. Was not sympathetic. Would not recommend.
