My 89 year old sister,who is in a nursing home, is in a wheelchair supplied with oxygen, and has a feeding tube, went for a follow-up appt. scheduled today at 11:15 a.m. She needs an ambulette and an aide in order to get to his office at Phelps Hospital. She arrived on time on this rainy day only to be told she needed her Social Security Card and they couldn't see her. She had been there before so they already had all her records and she had the papers from nursing home with her. HIs staff proceeded to call the nursing home claiming to need something and when they insisted they couldn't get through, my sister told them to call the Nursing Home Administrator. Upon my sister's return to the nursing home she and her friend were told by the Administrator that they kept him on hold for 20 minutes. Then my sister's aide/friend asked to see Dr. Zalvan and they waited and waited but he never came out to see them. Finally the staff told my sister with the feeding tube, and her friend, to go get something for lunch and come back at 1 p.m and they would take her. How is it possible that they could take her at 1 p.m. if they couldn't take her at 11:15? Anyway, her ambulette and feedings and the aide's/friend's time were all scheduled for the 11:15 appt. so they could no longer wait. Also she isn't physically strong enough to go through so many hours like that - having had to leave her nursing home at 10 a.m. This doctor and his staff are totally heartless!
I had seen other doctors prior to my visit with Dr. Zalvan and received no solution or proper treatment for my condition. I was told by other physicians potential options for my condition were not available to me. However, Dr. Zalvan assured me this was not the case. I did have options and he thoroughly explained all of them to me. He is an amazing physician that I would recommend to anyone. He is extremely down to earth, really takes his time, treats his patients with dignity and respect, and most of all DOES NOT run his practice like a business. He is extremely professional. I highly recommend him
