What People Say About Dr. Zarah-Ann Alba, MD
RecentHighestLowestMost Helpful
Reply
Dr Alba has been my Primary care Physician for over 2 years. I find her to be professional and caring. Recently she went above and beyond and found the Diagnosis for a problem that suddenly appeared. She contacted me immediately about my abnormal lab results and arranged an immediate referral for continued care. She listened and followed up to make sure I was doing better. I am glad to be her patient.

let me just say she is like Dr Jekyll and Mr. Hyde! First visit -Great! Second- she was very rude - she just stared at me from the minute she entered the room. Mind you, I gave her no reason to act so disrespectful. She needs a lot of work on her bedside mannerism! I won’t go back! Staff is great though, unfortunately. She is very judgmental and hateful to say the least! So if you want a Dr with a good bedside & doesn’t Judge you before she sees you and gets to know you, —don’t go to Dr Alba
