WOULD NOT SEE ME FOR 2ND OPINON

Called him for 2nd opinion regarding Rib-resection surgery my Vascular surgeon was going to perform. Zager refused to see me until I had a new MRI and X-Ray taken, which Zager would NOT order. TERRIBLE!! Does he even CARE?!?! Filled out even though I never saw him because HE refused to see me.

He may be a good dr but he is a slumlord in NYC. He owns multiple buildings and treats his tenants like a slumlord. Hopefully his medical practices make up for the thousands of lives he ruins as a robber baron,
