Dr. Zweig has ben my physician for 30 years. I have consistently experienced his focused attention, thorough explanations, empathic support and very generous time allotment, as well as the benefit current medical information and understandable explanations of that information. Two years ago I was unexpectedly hospitalized for 4 days , at a hospital with which Dr. Zweig was not affiliated. He came DAILY to consult with the doctor on my case and to spend time checking in with me! No amount of $$ can buy that level of commitment! I endorse and recommend him WITHOUT RESERVATION.
I agree with the rating of 12/30/07 and I commend this patient for caring enough to warn people. For someone who is supposed to be scientifically based, it is surreal how fast Dr. Gary Zweig will make a judgment, assume with very little info. that he knows better (than even highly respected colleagues and specialists), and how fast he is to criticize or stereotype. Once he has spoken, if you should provide additional information or clarification, he will accuse you of arguing or becoming defensive. He will make statements that are false, outrageous assumptions or a snap prognosis. Then, he'll slap you on the way out with an unbelievable fee, may embarrass you by announcing something about your health to his staff - with patients nearby, but will often avoid having to do the real work, referring people out for common problems that an experienced internist would generally handle or monitor. No desire to listen or empathize; no inclination to be positive about anything but himself.
Fairly knowledgeable technically; well regarded by other medical professional patients he likely treats with more respect. Totally uninterested in listening, typical "volume management dictated by insurer's contract" practice; utterly self-important, e.g.: when repeatedly confronted with explanations why his ever-unreliable front desk staff / voice mail system was not processing timely reschedule requests, he responded: either (a) you must be wrong because nobody else complains, or (b) I just practice medicine; I don't concern myself with such (boring, plebian, unimportant) things as whether my patients are improperly billed for no-shows. Interestingly, his front desk staff ultimately admitted that these were in fact their mistakes and that others had been treated the same way. Asked about sleep apena problems/possible value of sleep study or treatment, he dismssively rattled off canned 20 second speech why it wasn't worth bothering about as treatments were useless. Avoid like Plague.
