Following a terrible experience with another neurologist within Memorial Hermann, we were referred to Dr. Z who has restored our faith in the medical profession! He truly exemplifies a sincere and caring approach that does not come to conclusions without further analysis. Should you or your family member need assistance with dementia, persistent migraines or other neurological issues, I would highly recommend Dr. Z. In addition, he staff are exceptional in their customer service.

Dr. Z is not only a great doctor, but a fine individual. I had a random seizure at the age of 52. My friend referred me to Dr. Z. and he was wonderful, patient and so calming at this very scary time. He quickly put me at ease and performed all the necessary test, being careful to explain them to me along the way. Never was he condescending or arrogant - just the right amount of confidence and caring!

If it were not for Dr Zweighaft, I would likely not be alive today or have poor quality of life . Neurologists in my city told me that I had either a dialated blood vessel or an aneurysm and the surgery was too risky to explore.....When I sent my records to Dr Zweighaft, he told me that I had an aneurysm -----he sent me to Dr Duke Samson in Dallas, who confirmed Dr Zweighafts diagnosis. I had surgery 2 weeks later and am here today 17 years later because of Dr Zweighafts accurate diagnosis..
