Dr. Zipper is a real nice person. I am not so happy with the office staff. His assistant was really nice and understanding. The office manager, I think that's whovshe was and one of the receptionist rude. The manager told me there was a problem with my insurance payment ( she didn't care about the reason) and treated me like garbadge. She said she would talk to the person from my insurance co when I straightened the problem out. She never came back to talk to to him. One of the rec was rude

Hi staff is wonderful. However, Dr. Zipper final diagnosis was dangerously wrong. If I had not gone to another doctor at Florida Hospital, I would have died.
