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.
