Excellent experience.

I was asked more questions by the PA than the doctor. He seemed much more interested in me as a patient. The doctor took it for a given that I was there for a surgical consult and then spent the entire time talking about the seriousness of the surgery and the preparation, even mentioning that one of his patients had been paralyzed after the surgery because the bones had not properly been strengthened beforehand. I think he could have skipped that story.

Dr. Zuckerman took his time with me to explain my options, hear my concerns, and help me find a solution. He was compassionate and knowledgeable which seems to be a rare gem in the medical field at times. I was very scared and he went out of his way to ease my anxiety and work towards a solution that fits me and my family. Any delay and wait time was well worth it to receive the quality of care that I did.
