Dr. El-Zeway and his staff were very exceptional in all aspects concerning my health.

October 16, 2019

Everyone was very pleasant and professional. The PA was very thorough in his questions to me. He made sure I understood what he was explaining to me as far as my current physical conditions were concerned. The Dr. was also very kind, understanding and professional. I felt very comfortable with him.

July 09, 2019

Dr and PA both talked down to me, didn't listen to my chief complaint. Essentially sent me back to square one with my care. Very disappointed and frustrated with visit.

July 02, 2019

Dr was good about answering all my questions and taking all the time needed

April 24, 2019

Took along time to see dr. didn't check imagine of the mri. said he never seen a fusion like that. so how could he diagnose me properly. never looked at my papers I filled out. so there's no way he could diagnose me right.

April 16, 2019

Dr. El-Zuway was very knowledgeable and explained everything very clearly. His assistants were very nice, as well.

April 01, 2019

Considering I had 2 other doctors tell me that I needed surgery only to find out that Dr. El-Zuway says that I don't. He gave me misinformation and tried to blame my medical condition on a completely unrelated issue.
