Last week Doctor Zager treated and cured my father using his pain management super skills. Doctor zager continue to do a follow up by calling us just to make sure my father was ok, as far as I know he is the only Doctor that calls his patients to know how they are doing after being treated by him. Doctor Mark Zager spends a long time time with his patients at the doctors office from 40 to 60 minutes per patient and the wait time to see him is ONLY up to 15 minutes, it is a wonderful place to go get treated and excellent customer services.

Today, I took my father to see Doctor Zager due to a very bad pain he had for the last month and taking many medication recommended by others doctors that it did not work, well Doctor Zager cured my father today in 1 visit after spending almost an hour treating my father is cured in 1 DAY AND FREE OF PAIN!!! My entire family have been treated with Doctor Zager for the last 20 years. Doctor Zager always takes his time with us from 30 minutes to near an hour or more. TO WRITE A REVIEW THAT HE DO NOT TAKES ENOUGH TIME WITH A PATIENT IS SHOCKING AND INAPPROPRIATE. Doctor Zager really cares about his patients, he do not see you as $, but as a human being and you could tell he loves his job and his patients. Doctor Zager is extremely knowledgeable and ALWAYS HIT THE NAIL ON THE FIRST SHOT. Doctor Zager, provides his cell phone number for emergencies and calls you to know how you are doing after being treated by him, no other doctor does that, ONLY HIM, I HIGHLY RECOMMENDS DOCTOR ZAGER FOR ANY MEDICAL NEEDS, HE WILL CURE YOU ON THE SPOT HI IS MESSING AROUND, HE WILL CURED YOU FAST.

I have know Dr. Zager for 37 years. I started seeing him as a 10 year old child. The last few years have been lackluster at best. He doesn't seem too concerned for me or any of my ongoing issues. Many patients rave about him calling them back on weekends, holidays, etc. I contacted him on 2/4/18. I am still waiting for a call back. Be prepared to wait upwards of two hours for completion of your visit. My experience has always been listening to him ramble on and on to the patient next door to me, I usually got about 5 minutes. The practice has been sold to a clinic of some kind. There's twice the amount of staff with half the amount of work being done. If you enjoy sitting in a waiting room full of elderly patients, this is the doctor for you. The best decision is personally firing Dr. Mark Zager!
This man was my doctor for over 15 years. I wasn't especially needy but when I was in need, he was always there for me. I had no idea that when I moved away 10 years ago that he would be totally irreplaceable. His staff was great back then. I have no idea what they are like now so I won't review them currently. Yes, he was always hyper, thank goodness. He has the energy to keep going and going and get the job done. His office is so well equipped. He does a routine physical like I've never had since - so detailed. Yes, there is a long wait time in the waiting area before it is your turn. It is worth the wait because then he is yours. We would sometimes talk about other things but not at the expense of the diagnosis and care. It made it more like years gone past when people actually knew their doctor. If he is now telling patients he is the best, well, he is. He's honest and not shy. And he IS the best. I've always believed in preventative maintenance. So I was never in great routine need when Dr. Zager was my doctor. But I knew him, he knew me, and he could diagnose any sudden problem and deal with it. I had full confidence in him. I now live 5 hours away and it has been impossible to find a doctor of Dr. Zager's abilities as a diagnostician. In fact, no one has come close to doing such a thorough routine yearly physical exam. Yes, it took 2 appointments to accomplish at that time. Not only do I miss Dr. Zager's personality, I miss the level of wellness I had when he was my doctor. I now have a chronic issue that continues to be misdiagnosed locally and the alleged better specialists in my area are too busy to be willing to see me. I may have to drive the 5 hours to see the only doctor that truly seems to care - and really think outside the box - Dr. Zager IS the best.
From the 1st contact - the staff was impressive. My first meeting with Dr. Zager left me with the impression that I would be in good hands. Dr. Zager has NOT disappointed. He is and has always been VERY engaging... He doesn't give the 5 minute visit. He talks about YOU and remembers YOU and does his own FOLLOW UP CALLS. I've spoken to Dr. Zager on both a Saturday AND a Sunday in reference to him checking up on me. I recently moved about 60 miles away from my previous residence and needed a new PCP... I'm happy to report that I found EXACTLY WHAT I NEED in Dr. Zager. Thank you Dr. Zager!
I have several problems in regards to chewing on ice and heavy menstrual cycles, I scheduled an appointment with Dr. Zager and on my visit he showed very high concerns on me chewing on ice, he gave me so much information that I was not aware of, he explained to me the danger i was putting myself in If I continue to chew on ice . Dr. Zager was very compassionate in regards to my health. he constantly called me to check to see how I was doing. He instructed me that i can give him a call at anytime. For this being my first visit, he showed me compassionate and showed me he really care about his patients and they well-being. Yes my appointment was at least 2 hours because he was very detailed on my visit and he went beyond just to make sure all of my questions were answered. I will recommend this Doctor to anyone.. He is very caring, compassionate
Dr. Zager is a magnificent doctor that truly cares about his patients. As a medical student that has analyzed his work and patient interactions for the past few months all I can say is that he is very knowledgeable, caring, and compassionate with all of his patients. I personally believe that the comment below is a misunderstanding as Dr. Zager always makes it a priority to communicate with his patients as much as possible. Perhaps the patient was not aware that the physical is conducted in two parts, usually in the first part lab work along with an EKG and chest x-ray is done. Once all of the analysis are done Dr. Zager spends roughly about an hour getting to know his patients, examining them from head to toe, and discussing a very detailed anti-inflammatory diet given that inflammation is the #1 cause for disease. Dr. Zager does take pride in his knowledge and he lets his patients know about his qualifications because he believes that it is important for his patients to know that they are in great hands. He even goes as far providing his patients with his personal number to let them know that he is literally one call away. Moreover, he always emphasizes the importance of keeping his patient’s information private as it goes hand-to-hand with making them feel safe. Perhaps the patient below should consider going in for the second part of his/her physical, in which Dr. Zager spends even more time getting to know the patient in-depth, but this time around he is able to be more specific given that he will be using all of the results from the lab work conducted in part one of the physical. In all, if you want a physician that takes his time, listens to your concerns, truly cares about your well-being, and is willing to do whatever it takes to make you feel better then look no further than Dr. Zager.
When I walked into the examining room, the nurse or tech gave me a big, stapled sheaf of papers about nutrition. Although I have no problem with receiving information, there was a huge assumption at work here. Why not speak with the patient first and find out what kind of diet he currently follows? That set the tone for my visit; from beginning to end, Dr. Zager asked me almost no questions—really, maybe two or three. He talked incessantly about himself and how great he was. Almost immediately upon entering the room, he reached for the computer, typed in something about “#1 doctor,” and pulled up a site with suspiciously gushing reviews proclaiming him the greatest doctor in Miami. He came in with a cup of tea and never touched it, and was in and out of the room like a hyperactive first-grader. One of the many times he stepped out to another room, I could hear him telling one of his staff to “Get me up on Google,” presumably for another patient. When he learned that I had a family member who had died of cancer, Dr. Zager said, “He must have eaten a lot of white bread, flour, etc.” When I said that this had not been the case, he looked me right in the eye with a little smirk and said, “You don’t know what he ate.” I have spent a lot of time in medical settings and have never heard such a presumptuous, needlessly insulting, pointlessly hurtful comment from a doctor. At one point, Dr. Zager was with a patient in another room, and since both doors were open, I got a good look at the patient. When the doctor came back in, he started volunteering information about the patient’s problems. Perhaps I should have explained to Dr. Zager that he was supposed to keep his patients’ health and personal information private, but with four decades of experience he should know that. I found this doctor thoroughly unprofessional and useless. I will not be going back to him.
