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 have seen Dr. Zald and his staff many times over the last year and they all have been very supporting and helpful. Dr. Zald takes whatever time needed to answer questions and make sure I leave feeling like I know what is going on. He is thorough and knowledgeable.

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.

This was the most pathetic experience I have had at a doctors office. I waited 1.5 hrs so this guy could stumble in and spend 1 min talking awkwardly and look in my ears and tell me nothing and have no options to pursue. I wasn't there for medication I was there to understand why I was having pain and discomfort. When he scowled at me and stopped talking I stood up to leave. He obviously is busy and thought I was wasting his time. I asked if we were on the same page or if he was not underdtanfin
