08/08/13 4 4 5 5 This is the best doctor I've ever been to ever, and I've been to a LOT of doctors. Dr. Zaidel is extremely smart, warm, caring, very up on the latest of everything, and he's a really funny guy besides. I love him and wouldn't trade him for the world. He listens, spends time with you, and knows his stuff. He never condescends, but is a friend instead.  Respond

07/08/13 4 1 5 5 I always have to wait a long time when I am there. He is very busy. It is difficult to get a appointment with him. It is easier to get a appointment with his Physician Assistant while he is there so she can ask him questions and get prescriptions for me. He is very nice and knowledgeable. Calls are not returned timely when messages are left to find out test results.

10/05/11 5 3 5 5 Dr Zaidel is the best. I have to agree 100% with the first post on this site. He truly cares about his patients overall health. He often runs behind, because he does not rush patients in and out. He want you not 99% better but 100% better and strives to get you there. I can't say enough about what a wonderful physician Dr. Zaidel is. It is too bad that all Dr's are not as caring and concerned about their patients.  Respond

05/05/11 4 5 5 5 Dr. Zaidel raises the bar on professionalism and bedside manners. He listened to me, he took terrific notes, made excellent suggestions, didn't rush me out, had a great sense of humor and is extremely intelligent. I can't rate him high enough. He has elevated the standard on some many levels of the way doctors should be with their patients that it simply makes it hard to go to anyone else. Very thorogh AND he has the ability to understand life's situations and how they play a role in your life and your health. He even took the tiem to not only ask me I do for a living, but took a genuine intersted in what I actually do. The most comfortable and thorough doctor I have ever been to. I can't recommended him enough. Thanks Dr. Zaidel. You are simply thee best.
