Very sharp he knows his profession well. Takes the time to listen
in Tomball, TX |
I have been his patient for about 8 years now. I have recommended Dr. Zia to several people. He is a very, very good doctor and I have never waited longer than a few minutes in his waiting room or exam room. He is friendly and incredibly knowledgeable. I am very happy I found him.

I waited an hour and half and still never got to see the doctor on my last visit to Dr. Zia. I was not offered a reschedule time. When I asked when I would be seen I was treated as if it was an imposition for me to request to be seen at or even near the time of my scheduled appointment. There are signs saying patients are seen at their appointed times and that they do not operate on a first come first serve basis. Patients with later appointments were seen before me, though. Terrible experience.

I have been seeing Dr. Zia for about 5 or 6 years now. I have never had to wait more than a few minutes in the office, the staff is very kind and supportive, and I like Dr. Zia and feel that he supports my health issues very professionally and kindly. I would highly recommend him as a physician.

Dr Zia himself is good. His front desk receptionist is wonderful. The issues I've had have all been with the scheduler/perscription girl. She never fails to call in an rx for 2 pills as 1. Or to book an appointment for the wrong day. Ect.
