Dr. Z is incredibly knowledgeable, compassionate and determined
“ I came to Dr. Z's office with a life long history of painful medical mysteries and oddities with a slight hunch of what could be possibly be the underlying cause of it all and a referral from my PCP. Dr. Z listened to me throughly and compassionately. She ordered a slew of tests to rule in or out all possible obvious causes, and has been helping me on this complex diagnosis journey every step of the way since. From ordering testing and PT to a follow up with one of the top UPenn geneticists,for my condition, in our area, Dr. Z has had a plan for "what's next" every step of the way. I have had to call Dr. Z's office for various reasons and ALWAYS recieve a call back within minutes. When the call is about a concern or issue Dr. Z has called me back herself to check in and chat about my care. None of my other providers take this extra step and it's a step I am beyond grateful for. To know my Rheumatologist is there to truly help and support me every step of the way, is incredibly reassuring and encouraging. As a medical "Zebra" paitent who has been brushed off as well as recieved subpar care from many other providers, I truly appreciate Dr. Z and her staff in the incredible work that they do advocating for and truly caring for their patients. Dr. Z's care has changed my life for the better. I could go on for days about the amazing physician she is and all she has done on my behalf. Thank you again and again to Dr. Z and Team! ♡ ”
