Mayville, ND |
This doctor acted bored and unbelieving when I came to him. He spoke more with my husband than he did to me about my issues, as though I were a child. He suggested my issues were in my head and that I was depressed. If it were not for the resident/student that accompanied him, he wouldn't have even given acknowledgement to the large lump in my neck! He dismissed it but the student called attention to it. The lump along with the ultrasound images were not enough to cause this man to care.
Dr. Zaks gave me a quick exam, told the medical student he didn't bother to introduce or ask if I was okay with having at my appointment that I was "disappointing and not much to see", gave me a "trashcan diagnosis" (his words) and no treatment. Just maybe exercise will help. (I am 10 pounds overweight and exercise 2-3x/wk.) He suggested weight watchers, which lost half my respect. He then ordered some tests, but had said no matter what they come back as there's no treatment. Waste of time.

Dr. Zaks has been an amazing doctor and has helped me out most of my life. He has been a fantastic doctor and takes the time to help me when I need it. I highly recommend him for a doctor.

Went out of his way to belittle me and make me feel like what I was dealing with was not at all important to him. Was constantly looking at his watch when I was speaking. He was very condescending and made me feel like it was all in my head, saying that 'maybe it's not actually happening', trying to psych me out. He spent very little time with me and even brought in a medical student to insult me in front of. If you are looking for a new doctor, keep on searching. Do not see Dr. Zaks!
