    A family practitioner is a doctor who specializes in caring for people of all ages, at all stages of life. Rather than focusing on the treatment of one disease or patient population, family practitioners are often the doctors that people see for their everyday ailments, like cold and flu or respiratory infections, and health screenings. When necessary, family practitioners will provide referrals for conditions that require the expertise of another specialist.

Good Doctor - Terrible Staff

Phillip Zaret will listen; however, he is always in a rush. Maybe it's Obama-care pressure for all the patients he has today - much better a couple of years ago. His staff is incompetent. Getting authorizations for even an x-ray takes weeks...even more than a month. I had to get involved to get things done. The system is still using fax machines. Again, this could be a reflection of the patient load which looks heavy to me; regardless, customer service is very low. Finally, the offices are old and carpets dirty. Time to renovate.

I had NOTHING BUT DRAMA AND RUDENESS FROM STAFF. It is always a hurry up process when I go to see him. The doctor barely takes any time in listening to what I have to say. And. Getting a referral is a lost cause. Nice guy but maybe he is overlooked by his staff. Or is just trying to cash in on as many patients as he can. Only good thing that's a positive is I can get any prescription I want ...lol

Outstanding Doctor.... Inhuman Staff.

I've been with Dr. Zaret for a very long time. He's awesome. Unfortunately his staff is no where near. Without his knowledge, the front desk girls are beyond rude & unprofessional. I've NEVER seen them do a single thing except sit and gossip in Spanish about us (the patients), right in front of our faces. They're assumption that someone isn't bilingual because they're blonde is a big mistake. I'm sick of being treated badly because of my race and I'm DONE dealing with it. I'm going to report all of their actions to the doctor this Monday and hope I don't have to take legal action against them. This all is so sad, when the doctor is the good one.

Great Family Doctor

I been seeing with Dr. Zaret since 1991. He has treated me and my wife as if he was treating a family memeber. His staff is always helpful and they try to fit us in his schedule with little to no wait whenever possible. We drive almost 100 miles to see him as we trust him to care for us and provide us with the best of care.
