Outstanding Surgeon!

I had an emergency appendectomy and Dr. Zuckerman war my surgeon. She was exceptional from the initial visit where she put me at ease and set my expectations, to the pre-op visit to make sure I was okay with everything and feeling calm, to the follow up visit where she took the time to examine me and give me her recommendations as far as my recovery. However, this is what really astonished me. The surgery was laparoscopic and even though it is less invasive, Dr. Zuckerman's precision in not causing too much additional trauma while working on the appendix allowed me to not even need to get the prescription for pain medication filled. I had the surgery in the morning, was on my feet in the afternoon, and was on my way home that night (based on my decision, not anyone pushing). I just felt well enough to go home as there was very little pain. I only took ibuprofen, and that was just for a day or two. Overall, the experience was top notch. It was clear to me Dr. Zuckerman is a detail oriented and very skilled surgeon. She is also very personable and sets great expectations. I highly recommend her. It was a great experience.

Supportive and caring

I connected with Dr Zuckerman on day one. Having cancer was frightening to me. She listened, offered a smile and a gentle touch. She was clear about treatment, gave excellent care and her focus was me, the patient. If I was having a bad day, she pulled up a stool and sat with me, always offering support, encouragement and the reassurance that as I move on to chemo, she will still be available to me through out my treatment. I've never had such wonderful care, ever!

Great surgeon, bad office management

After an unpleasant experience with another breast surgeon, Zuckerman's competency and compassion were highly reassuring. I felt very comfortable with her explanations and recommendations, and my surgical biopsy was superbly executed. She seemed on the cutting edge as well as conscientious regarding the potential impact of a pending breast biopsy on my extant lymphedema. Unfortunately, she has had three different office assistants in the scant year I've been working with her, and this has led to a lack of timely follow up on biopsy reports. Most recently, her office scheduled my annual mammogram, but failed to provide the facility with they scheduled the required requisition, resulting in my spending 2-1/2 hours in a freezing hospital sub-basement in half a hospital johnny while the diagnostic imaging facility waited for her offices to open and forward the basic paperwork and records. There is enough trauma surrounding breast care w/o the addition of office incompetence.
