Guthrie Patient: November 2018
Dr. Ziauddin's soft-spoken, caring, and professional manner was a blessing when my health issue required surgery. He always treated my husband and me with respect and was thorough with all our questions. I recommend him unstintingly.

Dr. Ziauddin personally called within an hour of my leaving his office with test results which hadn't yet been available while I was there. I thought that was out of the ordinary.

Guthrie Patient: October 2018
I was at my visit just yesterday and I have already recommended this provider to a family member and a friend. I was very impressed and pleased with the courtesy and attention that was given to me as an established patient seeing the provider for the first time. We reviewed my medical history at length, genetic testing options for risk factors, prevention plans, etc. AND the provider checked for my mammo results a number of times during my visit to ensure that they did not arrive prior to the end of my appointment. AND then, the provider called me personally with the results. I could not have been more pleased with my experience. I am very excited to have my breast cancer screening care in the hands of such a caring and competent provider. THANK YOU GUTHRIE!
Guthrie Patient: October 2018
No problem of any kind. He listen to everything I said.
