Did not see Dr Zeits until third visit. Only saw a physician assistant. When I finally saw dr Zeits it was for about 5 minutes. He wrote a prescription I believe for PT and told me to come back in a month or so. It was a hefty fee for seeing a physician assistant.

Awful. I went to see him, waiting 3 weeks for an appointment. I saw the PA. the next day, I went for an MRI. I did not get a call from anyone in the office until 16 days later. And they gave me the results and immediately told me I need surgery. No discussion about alternatives, just wanted to schedule the surgery.

He simply doesn't care about the patient. I called to cancel my operation and get a prescription for therapy instead like he recommended plus pain killers cus the pain is chronic and he never called back. While at the examining room he told me he'll be back to talk to me about any other question I may have about the operation and he did not come back. Plus he lied about my operating being in 2 weeks and it was actually 1 month and 2 weeks. If you want a doctor that cares this isn't the doctor.
