I have and will continue to recommend Dr. Zaidman to any and all patients with eye trouble of any kind. He is the ONLY doctor who said it was possible for me to have laser surgery. After having glasses since I was 4 years old, I am now seeing 20/25 without any glasses!!!! I had many problems for him to overcome and he did it with knowledge and precision. Although you may have to wait a while in the waiting room, it is 100% worth it.
Find ANYONE else

Rude, dismissive, distracted, disorganized. After a VERY long wait time in a waiting area that is not large enough for everyone you are seen by an intern - Zaidman pops in and then does a quick check all the while being called and interrupted by his office staff. He is incredibly cursory and waves off questions with "leave it to me". His staff is ridiculous - it is the land of misfit toys out there at that desk. They may all be nice women but they need to be retired. They can barely use the computer and are in over their heads in every way. I think they are understaffed and the staff that is there is below par and he clearly books as many people as possible without regard to patient comfort - or confidentiality. I wouldn't step foot in here again for any reason what so ever. It was the worst doctor's office experience of my life.

He needs to give his patients his undivided attention. He is always taking multiple calls while ignoring the patients. He doesn't listen to the patients to gauge an accurate diagnosis. His secretary is rude and obnoxious.

You research for the best doctor to trust with your eyes. You put your trust in him because everyone says he's great, and maybe there are specialties i.e. cornea transplants, etc. that gave him this reputation. Unfortunately mine was just the run of the mill cataract and therein lies the problem. Both eyes were done within months of each other. Distance lens were implanted and for the first few months I was so happy. No distance glasses, great vision. Then the vision started to cloud. I returned to Dr. Z who agreed I had the "secondary membrane". A simple laser treatment would correct it. Laser was done and I now have cloudy floaters and need distance glasses. He never discussed these eventualities during consultation. I will hopefully find a professional who can help me .

Long, long wait time.

RUDE RUDE RUDE. Be prepared to be interrupted by his staff regularly on his intercom where they will let him know who is on the phone and what they are calling about - and he will then pick up their call while you are in the middle of your appointment! This breaks every HIPPA law so if he's doing it to other patients he's likely doing it when you call so be sure not to say anything too personal - thank God it's an eye and not results to your GYN exam. Get your eye fixed and move on. They still use paper charts and more than once have intermingled paperwork. Disorganized staff who are crammed in a small office with no space to work = more room for mistakes. If you want to know how wonderful he is, just ask him and he'll tell you. As they say, any monkey can learn to work a computer or, in this case, wield a surgical tool. It's clearly obvious they don't teach bedside manners in med school. There's only one God, Dr. Z, and you ain't him.
if you want results he's the one to see

bedside manners are very poor--talks more to the interns than to you, but using him because he came highly reccommended
