Patient Comments (2)
in Rockledge, FL |
My visit with this doctor was absoluteley unbelievable. As a new patient, I was answering his questions when, two minutes into the visit, he stood up, said, "we're done," and KICKED ME OUT. Yes, the man kicked me out of his office! I have never in my life been treated this way by anyone, much less by a doctor who, everyone assumes, is supposed to HELP people. He obviously has no regard for the Hippocratic Oath. He not only ruined my day, he ruined my week and I left his office in shock.

Dr. Zaidi has zero empathy. He is out of control in his response to tears. The Hippocratic oath is not alive and well in his office. "First do not harm" is not part of his repertoire. He triggered a PTSD response to his treatment of me.
