The person in charge of managing Subutex patients was the office Coder, which I thought was inappropriate. I.was new to the state yet very familiar with Healthcare & Quality Issues. I was being hounded to have therapy visit’s even though I told them I was leaving the country for more than a week. On my 2nd visit the manager of Subutex told me that she would be providing my Therapy. I questioned her credentials with the MD and learned she was the office Coder, In his opinion, I misunderstood her comment. The MD picked up the phone in front of me, stating, “I will order your Subutex”, & clarified my Pharmacy. Upon my return to Fla, no Subutex was ever ordered. I received a bill from my Insurance Co. for a visit I never attended, which was reported. In all of my conversation’s with the MD & Coder I was the one who always misunderstood everything when I asked questions about questionable practice. I was never referred to a true Therapist, which is what they advertised. Stop going.

Don’t see Dr. Zaidi if you want to feel listened to or cared about. He repeatedly interrupted me while I was trying to express my experiences with my own mental illness, consistently talking over me and telling me that I was wrong about my own feelings. He proceeded to call me rude for sticking up for myself against his intolerance. I told him that he was making me feel unheard, and rather than apologizing and trying to do better, he simply told me that he knows what he’s talking about because he has experience and said that if I didn’t trust him, I should see someone else. I said I didn’t want to see him if I wasn’t being listened to, and he then proceeded to literally tell me “I don’t want to see you either.” I also have anorexia, and when I told him about what helps me get myself to eat more, he said “careful, you don’t want to eat too much because then you’ll gain weight.” Dr. Zaidi was indescribably rude and inconsiderate. If you want to be cared for and respected, go elsewhere.
