Guthrie Patient: August 2019
Dr. Ziauddin is extremely patient oriented and expresses great care for his patients. After calling me with an unfortunate diagnosis, he immediately made time for me in his schedule the following day to go over results and plans in great detail. I felt much more comfortable after speaking to him in person and he took the time to answer every question fully. He is a great fit in this role and I would recommend him to anyone in my position.
Guthrie Patient: August 2019
'Dr.Z' is not only very professional, but also truly cares about his patients. He shows compassion throughout the visit. I am extremely impressed that he personally calls patients with medical information. This is rare anymore. I am very comfortable with 'Dr. Z's' level of knowledge and expertise. I am confident in his care.

I had heard good things about him...all true
Guthrie Patient: July 2019
Prior to seeing Dr. Ziauddin, I had heard about his skills from friends who have been treated by him. They were accurate; he is personable, warm, yet friendly, and clearly VERY Knowledgeable(smart) in his field. I look forward to working with him during this current medical challenge.
Guthrie Patient: June 2019
Dr. Z is very calming, patient, listens and answers all questions with facts figures, test results, etc. He makes it easily understandable and does not make me feel rushed in any way. I appreciated that he showed me scan pictures on computer and explained what was significant in comparisons with earlier scans.
