What People Say About Dr. Zoyla Almeida, MD

The providor had little to no concern over the emotional experience of the patient. Cancer is a big word with a lot of fears and troubles that naturally come with it. The doctor has forgotten that for her patience having cancer is not normal. It is not easy for them to fully grasp especially if it is news to them. She has a tendency to treat her patience like they are not intelligent if they don't understand the complexities of their case the first time she explains it. She rushes her patients

I find that Dr Almeida is a terrific Dr, with a lot of experience. She is very through in her explanation and takes the time to listen. She did my surgery and everything went well. Because of her caring ways I was very comfortable to have her as my surgeon. After my surgery I was seen by Lucy the NP and she is just as good as Dr Almeida and very knowledgeable. My overall experience with the whole office staff has been great! I

In the almost 2 years of going to this office I’ve only seen Dr. Alameda 2 Tex’s, 1st x on the initial visit, second x was the surgery. Since then I only see the PA Lucy who does not get back to you after you’ve had test, and have to repeatedly call the office for results. I see the PA every three months and have ultrasounds every 3 to 6 months, due to fluid in the endometrial cavity. I continue to ask how long do I repeat this procedure and get NO response.

I regret EVER going to see this Doctor! Because of her negligence I end up with a deadly infection due to not properly identifying the lump she discovered after she performed two surgeries on me, I end up hospitalized for an entire month fighting for my life, and now can NO longer have children and have MULTIPLE health issues. Ladies I strongly suggest you do your research before having any surgery and always get a second opinion. If this message does not appear on the review, I'll know why..

I have nothing but awesome things to say about the experience I had with Dr. Almeida, I went in for my consultation and the staff was great. Dr. Almeida answered all my questions thoroughly. She was very thoughtful and understanding of my situation and made me feel comfortable. I had no complications healing from my procedure and recovery time minimal. She took her time explaining what steps I should take to heal faster and made sure I was okay. I would definitely recommend her to anyone and if

It is difficult to experience age-related gynecological problems and it's challenging to find a competent, caring physician. Dr. Almeida is highly clinical in her approach to diagnosing and treatment. I was not entirely ready for that directness and candor, so be prepared. In the end, I was grateful to finally find a doctor who could and would help me. You will find in Dr. Almeida a very caring, qualified doctor. I highly recommend her. Office staff gets kudos too!

Good surgeon and great staff. Treats you as a number not a patient. Never followed up with me after surgery, had her PA do that. II did not go to her to have a PA see me. Would never reccommend her..

Had surgery a year ago to remove fibroids, but for some reason, the Dr. felt the need to leave a few of them in. Now, they are trying to convince me that they have grown back. I've asked to see my surgical report, but haven't received it yet. I will not be returning to the office, because it seems like they do not care about the patients. All they are looking at is making money.

This doctor is the absolute worst. I was in the hospital with an infection and this doctor jumped at the opportunity to tell me that i would need a hysterectomy. She gave me the news with zero sympathy even though i am a young girl in the hopes of having children. Thank god i got a second opinion with a great doctor that operated on me and saved my uterus. If you ever have this doctor and she tells you that you need a hysterectomy, please get a second opinion.

Dr. Almeida is a fabulous doctor. She will make you feel comfortable while discussing your issues with you... Her professionalism, knowledge, judgement, surgical skills, etc. are far above others. She performed a robotic hysterectomy on me a few years ago and I am fine with no problems. Her follow up care, likewise, is exceptional. I still see her a few times a year. Her staff is great. Each lady has her job to do. They are warm and welcoming.. My adult daughter is now her patient.

I was afraid when I was first referred to Dr. Almeida but was hopeful that I would have a good diagnosis. Dr. scheduled me for surgery right away and I'm glad that she did. My result was cancer. I have had to undergo chemo but am doing great now. Great prognosis. I was told by my oncologist that if I had waited much longer, the outcome would not have been so good. Thank you Dr. Almeida for all you have done for me and my family.

It took 3 weeks to get an appointment with this doctor and as soon as she saw me she said I needed a hysterectomy in 2 days. Could not wait a week even though a very respected doctor advised me that I most likely did not have cancer and my operation could wait a week or two. She is an alarmist and uses fear to motivate patients into scheduling an operation with her. Never read my mri scan but relies on her assistant's notes to make her diagnosis. You should stay away from this doctor.

I saw Dr. Almeida for 10 minutes and she was very condescending , matter of fact and falsely diagnosed me with ovarian cancer . She attempted to immediately schedule me for surgery to have my ovaries taken out because of a cyst. Luckily, I did not heed her advice and the cyst shrank within 3 months. I have since had 2 beautiful children which would not have been here had I listened to this matter of fact diagnosis.. I highly recommend getting another opinion if you see this doctor .

I had an excellent experience with Dr. Almeida. She is a skilled surgeon and very knowledgeable. She explains everything and answers all questions. She came highly recommended. I felt very confident about her performing the surgery. More importantly, there was no need for a blood transfusion because she's so good. You can call it a bloodless surgery. I highly recommended her.

Best gynecologic-Oncology that I never met. She was so kind and concern about my health condition. She quickly identify the problem and propose the best options to solve it. After my surgery she follow up efficiently my progress until I was ready to be back to my normal daily activities. Today I don't have any scar and I feel great.

very long wait for the first appointment. took two hours to see the DR. I was scheudled for an ultrasound and apparantly the fact that the person in front of me, (I was promised the first appointment) didnt drink all of their water, held up the entire day. There were so many front desk people that there were not enough chairs and nobdy knew what they were doing. Incompetent and not helpful. I would not reccomend to anyone!!!

I just had robotic surgery and the doctor came and spoke to me for less than two minutes. She is always in a rush and didn't show up at the hospital to discharge me. She didn't write a prescription for pain either. Told the nurse for me to take over the counter motrin or for me to go to her office to pick up a prescription. Really?!? I just had surgery and can't drive. Her staff doesn't return calls and didn't fill out my fmla papers needed for my job. I am sooo dissapointed with this doctor! :(
