*Dr. Z. is fantastic, knowledgeable and professional. He responds to his emails (my questions) immediately (after hours communication). He called me on Friday, 3 hours after my MRI with the results. I didn't have to worry all weekend - he's a blessing.
Guthrie Patient: January 2018
This was my 1st appt with this Dr. for transfer of care due to the retirement of Helen and Dr. G. I found Ziauddin to be very knowledgeable, thorough, professional and caring. He provided me with information about breast cancer and breast tissue that had never been shared with me before- his educational approach was extremely helpful to me as a patient and instrumental approach if we are to manage my breast health together. I HIGHLY recommend him, and have already touted his approach to my friends!

One of the best and caring physicians I have ever had.

Dr. Z went above and beyond to spend time with us in assisting us in making an extremely important surgical decision. Dr. Z is very thorough and has never made me feel that he was rushing through my appointment.
