He reminds me of House. He tells it like it is. I like him, and I've been his patient for 20+ years.

Dr. Zalis prescribed me Xanax and after taking it for a year I decided to quit cold turkey (bad idea). I did not know there were withdrawal symptoms so severe that they could me life threatening. After day 3 of cold turkey, I ended up in the ER and then was later discharged to follow up with my primary Dr to come up with a taper off schedule. I decided to schedule an appointment for that same day.Dr. Zalis said, " I dont think you are going through withdrawals, (mind you, I was not asking for more meds, but was still treated as a drug addict) its just your anxiety and you need to schedule an appointment with a Psychiatrist. I believe I was a victim of Patient Profiling and had the worst two weeks of my life going throw withdrawals that effected my personal life with my family and my career as a business professional. I will be fling a complaint with the Florida Board of Medicine and looking for a new primary care physician.

When I saw Dr. Zalis, I had a terrible headache, my spine hurt, I could not touch my chin to my chest and I had a fever that would come and go. Dr. Zalis told me that everyone gets headaches now and then and sent me home. My symptoms continued to worsen. My roommate called his office and said she thought I was going to die. Dr. Zalis told my friend to take me to the hospital. I had bacterial menengitis and if my friend had not called Dr. Zalis I would be dead. This was the worst experience I ever had with a doctor.

wonderful doctor, crappy office staff

Wonderful doctor who is worth the wait to see him. Does a thorough assessment each time, instead of just treating the one thing you go to him with. His office staff unfortunately sucks. I've waited over an hour multiple times and that is with an appointment. I've learned that the staff is incompetent and will allow walk ins to go before appointments if you don't speak up. He also has a nurse that totally sucks, and I had to remind her to wear gloves when giving me an injection and doing a dressing change. So unsafe and unprofessional. All of this is worth seeing Dr Zalis, I know with him I am in excellent care.
