Guthrie Patient: February 2019
I have recommended several people to Dr. Z.
Guthrie Patient: February 2019
I thank and praise God for *Dr. Zlauddin. I can't thank him enough! Plus he sewed me up SO GREAT! He is SO KIND & SKILLED and caring!!
Guthrie Patient: January 2019
Dr. Z is wonderful. I am so happy he was my surgeon. He is always very kind and explains everything so that I understand my course of treatment.
Guthrie Patient: January 2019
Dr. Z is a wonderful doctor. I'm so lucky he's been in charge of my care.
Guthrie Patient: January 2019
I have had Helen Harshbarger (between her retirements), another Oncology doctor whose name I cannot remember, but who only stayed with Guthrie a short while (I saw him once), and Dr. Ford. I don't like switching back and forth with doctors, so I am hoping Dr. Ziuddin (sp) will be at Guthrie for an extended period of time! I liked him very, very much. I have gone from a cursory clinical exam with Ms. Harshbarger, to NO exam with Dr. Ford (he didn't deem it necessary), to an absolutely thorough and reassuring exam with Dr. Z. He was gentle, kind, professional, skilled, and knowledgeable and was willing to listen to my concerns as well. I consider and welcome Dr. Z as a real asset to my medical care team at Guthrie.
Guthrie Patient: November 2018
*Dr. M. F. Ziauddin is the best! He is calm, patient. He is a wonderful surgeon evidenced by his work; minimal incisions with NO pain/bleeding that heal every week with no antibiotics needed.
Guthrie Patient: November 2018
Doctor Z is everything you could want in a physican. I cannot say enough good about him
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.
Guthrie Patient: November 2018
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: November 2018
venturing into treatment of newly diagnosed breast cancer and I feel quite good with Dr Z as my surgeon.
