I am receiving great care for my condition with Dr. El-Zammar. After my PCP was stumped with what was happening to me, he spent a lot of time with me on my initial visit, and I agree with his diagnosis and treatment plans. He and his staff are quite friendly and responsive when I need to reach out. Really great quality of care.

Dr. El-Zammar was a very kind and professional doctor. He did not rush our time together and took the time to examine me and to ask the appropriate questions and to answer the many questions that I had. I felt very comfortable with Doctor El-Zammar and recommend him highly to any new patients that seek his services.

Great Doctor with lot of humility and humanity! Rare to find a doctor willing spend as much time listening and making his patients comfortable as Dr Ziad does. He came to the waiting room apologizing that he spent longtime with an elderly lady (he opened the door for her when she was leaving the office!!) I didn't mind waiting and felt good about it thinking that he would do the same with me or with any other patient :) thank you Dr Ziad for a great experience, while i was vulnerable and in pain

I was very pleased with my care with Dr. El-Zammar. He really listened and questioned me to try and solve my head aches. He spent a long time and it was very easy to talk to him even with a sense of humor. By the end of the first visit he had a plan to help me.

Sometimes I tell a person that he should not be afraid to be a master of the declarative statement. That might apply here. I thought that Dr. El-Zammar could have been a little more direct in telling me that he felt that I may have suffered a minor stroke, what the consequences are, what the treatment is, etc. Maybe it is premature to speak of that, but I would have preferred knowing even that.

I felt he did not listen to me. I was not pleased with the visit. He didn't do anything different than my primary care physician. He was nice enough but I just feel he didn't really listen to the patient and the patient's concerns.

Doctor El-Zammar conducted a very thorough examination,asked all relevant questions and provided a treatment plan. He explained everything in detail and listened and communicated very well. He picked a medication that will avoid exacerbating other medical problems that I have and this drug has some side effects that will likely be beneficial. I was very relieved by the visit as I feared the implications of my presenting complaint.

I wish I went to a Neuroghist many years ago. Yes, I will listen and pace myself.
