Patient Comments (5)
Dr.Zeodman is a gifted surgeon, I've had three major spinal surgeries done by him and have had major improvements. On the down side, he does not communicate well and his most of his office staff delivers mediocre service and often seem condescending and miserable.

Both my husband and I required Dr. Zeidman's services following an auto accident where we were rear-ended. My husband required neck and back surgery, and I had low back surgery. The professionalism of Dr. Zeidman and his staff including their personal concern during these procedures are beyond measure. We definitely would recommend them to our family and friends. `

Dr, Zeidman Office staff is the worst ...petty inconciderate abusive and very insecure women. UNPROFESSIONAL to say the least.They called my home and spoke to a male border and gave him all my medical information, he since is incarcerated.They tried to double bill the wrong insurance company,they have a terrible reputation with the insurance companies, Insurance companies see his name and presume that you are not really injured,I must say that I concur.Their excuse u were abusive thats a lie!
