Dr. Bennett G Zier has the following 2 specialties

  • Internal Medicine

    An internist is a physician who focuses on the diagnosis and treatment of conditions that affect the adult population—both acute and chronic.
    These doctors are often who adults see as their primary physicians because they treat a broad range of illnesses that do not require surgical or specialist interventions. They also work to help a patient maintain optimal health in order to prevent the onset of disease.
    In addition to treating the common cold and flu, internists also treat chronic diseases like diabetes and heart disease.

  • Geriatric Medicine

    A geriatric specialist is a physician who treats the elderly population and the conditions that most commonly affect them. These doctors have special training in the effects of aging on the body and mind of a patient.
    Geriatric specialists treat common ailments faced by senior citizens, such as frailty, incontinence, memory problems, arthritis, senility, decreased functioning and more.
    In addition, geriatric specialists keep abreast of the different medications that an elderly person is prescribed to treat their more complex health issues in order to decrease adverse side effects and avoid dangerous drug interactions.

What he lacks in competence, he makes up in arrogance.

My mother was in rehab and he was her doctor. The day she checked in, he removed all restrictions on fluids, despite my concerns. He also decided weekly monitoring would be sufficient - spoiler alert: it wasn't. He dismissed all my concerns, and retaliated against my mother, telling her - while I was out of the room - that she needed to accept her limitations in good grace. I told her she didn't need to accept his limitations. While waiting for the ambulance to take my mother back to hospital because her sodium levels were critically low, he told me she should have been seen by a urologist. That proved he hadn't even bothered to check her medical records, because she had been under the care of a urologist, who had ordered the fluid restrictions he discontinued. He also brought other doctors into her room during rounds, without introducing them or explaining their presence. Incompetent, dangerous, and arrogant.
