I recently found Dr. Z while searching for TOP Endocrinologist in Houston, TX. I made an appointment with her. Once I got to the office, I was greeted by her staff and was in the wait room about 5 minutes before being pulled back into one of the suites. I then waited for about 10 minutes. Her staff was very kind and her assistant has a great personality. Once I saw Dr. Z, she was very kind and easy to talk to. Her husband also works there, and he practiced for 25 years in India(I think). Now he's there to assist her in her practice. He was very kind and knowledgeable as well. Dr. Z has many years of experience and she seems very knowledgeable. She ask all of the right questions to make sure your diagnosis is proper. I was recently going to Dr.Patel,who is located off of Huffmeister and who is a horror of a doctor and has a staff with a horrible attitude. I'd been going to this doctor for about 2.5 yrs and had all of the symptoms for hyperthyroidism and he never put me on any medications. He just did nothing but sat around on his lazy butt and smiled, took my money, and stated nothing was wrong with me. My family doctor, Dr. Nancy Naghavi, had to diagnose me! However, Dr.Z made sure that she re-started the process of getting the proper diagnosis of my thyroid, regardless of what the other doctors had said. She restarted bloodwork, re-did the biopsy, and made sure that my thyroid was working properly by putting me on the right medication and getting my levels down to the proper levels. I was itching like crazy for the past 2 years and Dr.Z came in and gave me the right medication I needed and saved my life. This is a doctor that cares and takes all of the necessary steps to do what she can to properly diagnose you and help you! I love her and her staff! After the second visit in her office, her staff knew me by name! I am very picky about the doctors that I choose and Dr.Z is on my list of doctors that I would recommend! Thanks Dr.Z! I love you and your staff!
