Extremely competent

I stumbled on to Dr Zhukova at the East Hanover Medcare. She became my primary care doctor and was terrific. Competent and caring, yet stern when need, I had the utmost faith in her performance as my physician. When I mentioned who my primary doctor was to another doctor " you could not have made a better choice!" That says it all. I will miss her.

Three Stars

Short time with her during exam, seen by her many times and not sure if she remembers me each time. Would only recommend if you really don't have a serious medical concern.

Would not go to her again

I have been going to med-care since I was 18 (I am 25 now). I can finally say that I have given up on this place and their doctors. I always wait for a minimum of 15 minutes past my appointment even if I'm early. Dr. Zhukova is unfortunately there most often and I have been disappointed with her EVERY TIME. She does not spare more than 5 minutes of her time and she does not listen, at all. She has misdiagnosed (and inappropriately medicated) me on 2 separate occasions now. My worst experience was: I had blood tests taken as a result of constant fatigue. I got a letter with the results that said I should come in the office within 2 weeks for follow up blood work because of potential hypothyroidism. I had an ultrasound and additional blood tests, and in the very same appointment (at the end, after I went through all the trouble of being tested), she told me that there was really nothing they could do because the level of hormone in my blood was not low enough to medicate. I wish I would have known to ask about something like that BEFORE I spent 2 hours in their office. I would not have even bothered with the procedures. Most recently (and my final time visiting her) was a follow up after I wound up in the hospital with a severe bladder infection. I brought all the paperwork from the hospital which explained diagnosis and medication. At the end of the (literally 2 minute long) appointment she tells me she's writing a prescription for bladder infection and I said, why? Turned out she didn't even GLANCE at the paperwork and I suppose she just was flat out not listening when I explained that I had gone to the hospital, received a diagnosis and been written prescriptions. My review is long-winded but I have given this woman REPEATED chances. She has failed me every time. I would never recommend anyone to visit her.

Wonderful Doctor and human being.

My family and I have been going to Dr. Zhukova for many years now. She is not only very knowledgeable, she is a warm and caring person that takes the time to listen and explain.Her follow-ups are second to none. Dr. Zhukova in my humble opinion is one of the best Physicians in NJ. We will only go to the facility when we know that she is available.
