Doctor Zechowy is a wonderful doctor but his staff is extremely rude and unprofessional. Specifically, the two women working in the front desk. received nothing but negativity and unacceptable behavior from these two. Did not feel welcome at all because of them. Consider replacing for better business doc.
We are sorry to hear that your experience with the staff was less than ideal. Your feedback is much appreciated, and we will make every effort to let everyone know about your experience. We are always looking for ways to improve and encourage you to give us a call so that we may address any concerns you may have directly.

Was not helpful at all. After reading positive reviews here, I went to him about a painful ear problem that had been ailing me for over a year. The advice I received was to try some Sudafed and (may personal favorite) wear a hat. Maybe he thought I was exaggerating? He seemed to be in a hurry to rush me out. It was a big disappointment because I had to save to go see him in the first place, now I have to start over to go see another specialist when I can. Scheduling was a nightmare as well.

Dr Zechowy talks very quickly and uses large words that are hard to understand. He does not seems very thorough when explaining CT scans and MRI's. I leave feeling more confused than when I came in. Still having the same problems with my ear, and the problem is worse if anything.
