Dr. Zemede was very thorough and thoughtful at all my appointments. It's because of his thorough exams that we were able to get preventative care for myself and husband. We are grateful for Dr. Zemede .

Patient and Kind
Self-verified patient of Dr. Markos H Zemede - Posted on April 20th, 2015
Dr. Zemede is an excellent doctor and is very thorough in his examinations. He listens patiently and never seems hurried. He is also extremely kind. I have always hesitated to visit any doctor because of my weight, but I know it has to be addressed because it has such a major effect on health. When I have brought it up, Dr Zemede has been encouraging rather than critical. He is also good in his recommendations to specialists when needed.

Iâve only been to Dr. Zemente several times. My lab test for cholesterol level came out high. I received a call from Dr. Zementeâs office to start a statin drug at a certain milligram. Being that some people get a lot of negative side effects from statins & I have never been on a statin before I asked if I could start out on a lower milligram 1st then if that doesnât work go up to the higher milligram. The girl said she would have to ask Dr. Zemente & get back to me. When she called back she said the Dr. said ânoâ I have to take the higher milligram. Being curious, I wanted to know the reason why. Is it because my cholesterol is way too high or some other good reason? Since she said she didnât know Dr. Zementeâs reasoning, I asked her to have the Dr. call me so I could ask him. He called me back, I asked him the question, & he told me to go find another doctor. Would it really hurt to error on the side of caution & start with the lower milligram first?? I donât know. I wouldâve liked some kind of discussion w/Zemente on the pros & cons, but he didnât even want to engage in discussion. His attitude is just do as I say, donât ask any questions so you wonât take up too much of my time or my staffâs time. Zemente & I arenât a good match at all. I am a curious type & always have a lot of questions & feel my healthcare is collaboration between me & the doctor. I like an open communication w/the doctor & I like to feel free to ask any questions without feeling like Iâm taking too much of the doctorâs time, or the doctor thinking just because Iâm asking questions I think Iâm some kind of expert. He has shown me he is not willing to work for the best interest of his patient. Seemingly a friendly, nice, man, but a dr who must streamline his patients âone size first allâ, donât ask any questions or ask about options; itâll irritate him!

I was seen without a long wait and the doctor heard all my complaints well, ordered appropriate tests and called me with the results and got me the right medication. Now I am doing well...thank you Doc .
Tell it like it is

I wanted to transfer to his associate as I was not pleased with his bedside manner, and Dr Zemede didnt like hearing the truth from me when he asked me. Because I told him exactly how I felt but in a kind way, he did not address my problem on that day. He told me to find myself another doctor. Not ethical in the medical profession. Did he not read his medical creed.....really disappointed in him. This is my opinion.

I have been sreaching for a doctor to listen and not a pill pusher. I just found him. He took the time to listen and will be checking blood work every 3 month, and finally a great doctor who DOES NOT belittle me. The staff were very nice and smiled. They have a Lab which is much better so I don't need to run all over town and wait. That is a big plus. I don't mind my co-pay this visit was well worth my time. Thank you Doctor Zemede.

Spends enough time with patients, but still can get in and out of office in less than 30 minutes. Has diagnosed 2 major health problems of mine in one visit. Also he sends you to specialist for confirmation of diagnosis or even if you want a second opinion without questioning you. Very good to deal with and has always been attentive and has helped me tremendously with my health issues.

Best organized office I have ever been in. I never spend more than 30 minutes in to out. First doctor to ever charm my husband who has a quick temper. Courtesy is a plus. Knows when to bide his time & encourages patient participation in decisions. Came up with answers that specialist couldn't.
Co-pay for a sheet of paper
Self-verified patient of Dr. Markos H Zemede - Posted on September 16th, 2009
You cannot see this physician without insurance and a co-pay receipt. On the first visit I met the doctor and was handed a lab form. I did not get the physical I was hoping to get. On the second visit after another co-pay, I was told I had a problem with the lab work and would have to have additional lab work. I was given a recommended diet sheet for symptoms I did not have. I was handed the additional lab sheet an dismissed. I do not believe he had enough time to read the lab sheet and I was abruptly dismissed. He had no diagnosis. None of my questions about the lab work were answered and I did not receive the physical I had expected to receive at this second visit. I felt like I was the patient between other waiting patients and not worth the time. The secondary labwork ... as I suspected was unnecessary. When the second lab result came back negative, which I was sure it would, I was told I would have to have another co-pay to get the physical I had still not received. The staff was unhelpful and standoffish and frustrating to deal with; waiting long periods on the phone for someone to answer questions.
