Ratings for Dr. Mark A. 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.
Dr. Zager is an excellent, brilliant, caring, and patient Doctor that really cares about his patients. Great listener answering any of my questions, and more knowledge experience than any other Doctor I went to in the pass. The only Doctor that I will recommend to anyone is the very BEST "DR. ZAGER" and Thank God I found him.

I am usually nervous when I visit medical offices. Dr Zager is always able to relax me. I trust him more than any other doctor. He puts the patient first. He answers all of my questions. I am very fortunate to have him as my doctor. I will never change.
Dr. Zager is not only an excellent diagnostician, but his bedside manner truly sets him apart from other physicians. He takes the time to speak with patients about their personal lives, updating them on big things going on in his, as well, while tending to their medical needs. He never rushes a patient and always makes them feel like their time is valuable and deserving of his full attention. It is a privilege to not only call Dr. Zager my physician, but also my mentor and friend.
