Dr. Ziffra was very patient and thorough. Dr.X I was very patient during this visit, which is an improvement from my previous experience.

July 18, 2020 7:46 AM

front desk reception is very nice. the check out process is always very slow and the check out receptionist needs more training.

July 2, 2020 12:00 AM

Dr. Ziffra is a very caring doctor. He is careful in prescribing medicines and not aggressive in testing if not necessary.

June 15, 2020 7:49 PM

Took care of my fears and concerns

May 27, 2020 4:47 AM

Dr. Ziffra is on top of everything. He's trying to slowly get me off some of my blood pressure medicine.

May 27, 2020 4:47 AM

Good! I feel confident that Dr. Ziffra will help me accomplish my goal.

May 18, 2020 2:19 PM

Very good experience with the Dr. and his staff

May 18, 2020 12:12 PM

I thought this phone appointment was a waste of time.

May 15, 2020 8:26 AM

Due to the pandemic situation, my visit was done by phone. It was satisfactory, necessary at the time, but I prefer the face to face visit in the future.

May 15, 2020 8:26 AM

Dr. Ziffra is very professional and very thorough, I am well satisfied with his care.

May 4, 2020 3:14 PM

Filling out this survey was very difficult as we have been under a Mandated Stay at Home Order by the Governor of Illinois. My scheduled office visit with this provider was my first visit by phone. I was very pleased with how it was handled by not only his nurse but the Dr. as well.

April 29, 2020 8:47 AM

My experience with Dr. Ziffra was a good one and I was able to relate my concerns with ease. We had a interactive rapport with one another.

March 26, 2020 6:39 AM

I am very satisfied & very good experience.

March 26, 2020 6:39 AM

The doctor is super good and super nice.

March 13, 2020 8:23 AM

Good experience - I went over my cardiac history with him to bring him up to date as it was my first visit.

March 1, 2020 6:22 PM

first visit doctor was friendly, knowledgeable and concerned about Long term health insurance having been denied (which I incorrectly stated)

February 13, 2020 11:29 AM

Great experience (thank you).

February 4, 2020 8:02 PM

It was good. I seem to be doing well after may surgery.

January 27, 2020 11:57 AM

As always Jeffrey was caring, knowledgeable and informative. I have praised him to my primary care physician who has recommended him to other patients.

December 30, 2019 1:17 PM

He spent a good amount of time with me and explained things in a clear way. He put me at ease.

November 8, 2019 9:26 AM

Was not called with test results.

November 5, 2019 11:00 PM

Altogether a good experience.

October 2, 2019 7:00 PM

Would recommend.

I arrived early for appt. (> 3/4 of an hour - close to 1 hour) and was taken into be seen within 10-15 minutes of arrival. Surprised but pleased!
