San Jose, CA |
Dr Z provided plenty of information and was very thorough and caring. I would highly recommend him to family and friends!. He's an amazing surgeon and has a very responsive team that supports the patient in all the other steps, such as disability paperwork, workplace paperwork, appt scheduling, etc.
San Diego, ca |
He is never available and his nurse will always send you to the er instead of making an appointment. Ardele his nurse is rude and refuses to let you speak with him or have him call you back. He double and triple books appointments where you wait for over 2 hours to see him for 5 minutes. He doesn't take the time to figure out what's wrong and what's going on. He overlooked my problems and costed me more problems.
