Dr. Zweiner had an excellent bedside manner. Since then, we have only done telemedicine appointments. He has been professional, courteous, and on time. My child felt calm in his presence. Surprisingly, and apparently getting more rare, his office staff were also polite and courteous. His nurses are wonderful, too.

Our son has seen Dr. Zwiener for eight years. At a time when our son was diagnosed with Crohn's when he was eight, seeing two parents with a look of shock on their faces, Dr. Zwiener brought calmness and encouragement to us. We couldn't have asked for a better doctor. He has always thoroughly explained our son's situation, listened and accepted our input, and helped plan out what our son's best course of action for treatment was. His relationship with our son is amazing. He always has a great sense of humor with our son and always asks about his life and what he's up to. Our son is now 16, and we only have two more years to see Dr. Zwiener, and we will miss him. We couldn't possibly recommend a doctor more.

One of the best doctors in Austin. My son has a lot of medical issues making him a very complicated case. We see a lot of specialist and Dr. Zwiener has been one of the best Docs we've seen. He takes time, asks a lot of questions and is really passionate about understanding the patient. Although he focuses on GI he's very knowledgeable about other areas as well.

Extremely thorough and listens. Took the time to explain and didn’t dismiss symptoms or concerns. He is intense and serious but also warm and kind.

Dr. Zwiener is amazing! He listens to everything I say, shares information to keep me not only informed but also educated on my son's condition. He's funny and compassionate, really connecting with his patients and their parents.

We saw Dr. Zweiner from the time my son was born 3 months premature until he was 3 years old. During this time, Dr. Zweiner repeatedly tried to ween my son off his reflux meds. He minimized my concerns and seemed to have little understanding of pediatric feeding issues. My son was refusing most foods and Dr. Zweiner sent in a nutritionist who talked to me about how to get my son eat more broccoli. The child was eating maybe 3-5 foods at the time. My son was under 3% on the growth chart and was

We were trying to advocate for our son to get a feeding tube because we knew he likely had a syndrome and would continue to have difficulty feeding. Dr. Zwiener refused to acknowledge our son's difficulties, saying that his inability to eat enough or gain adequate weight was our fault for allowing him to cluster feed and upping the calories in his formula. When Dr. Zwiener saw my son for the first time he had microcephaly, was eating far less than he should, and had abnormal physical features. H

Dr. Zwierner is the most contentious and thorough pediatric doctor I have encountered. He is completely profressional while at the same time completely personable if you initiate. He does not make you feel bad if you drop the ball on some aspect of your child's care and he has left no stone unturned in treating my daughter. The staff at his office is efficient and friendly. They always call to schedule follow up appointments. I highly recommend Dr. Zwiener.
