Dr. Z has been very attentive to my situations and my questions. He listens well to my concerns and gives direct answers.

Dr Z is a great doctor, very easy to talk to and confide in.

Doctor was in no hurry to leave the room. Answered any questions that I had.
Nov 30, 2015
the whole experience was a pleasant one. absolutely hope that nothing changes. everyone involved had a smile on their face and they all have my vote for employee of the year.
Nov 23, 2015
had very bad pain in my legs. he never took the time to even look at them. he was more worried that none of my other health providers ever send anything about about my visits and test. he said when Geisinger checks it he looks bad. didn't care I felt bad just he would look bad. my legs could have been full of fluid or even blue due to lack of circulation. it's sad.
Nov 23, 2015
Dr Z talks in terms a lay person can understand. He listens to you and is caring. Excellent Doctor.

when you get in care is the best it is getting an appointment that is hard

Having been recently diagnosed with diabetes, both Elyssa and Dr. Z have provided a tremendous amount of support during the examinations, and provided explanations of the disease and available treatments without rushing me through the process. Their care and concern for my understanding of this illness was genuine. I cannot thank them enough.

Get a new phone system
Oct 21, 2015
I have recommended him to others
Oct 15, 2015
Doctor Z was great in explaining a new potential medical problem, rescheduled a test to assure no inaccuracies, ordered an additional test and has followed up with answers and advise. I appreciate greatly his concern and the depth of his continued consultation.
Oct 15, 2015
Dr. Z is "the best!" When Dr. Kane became ill and had to "retire." I never thought that I would feel cared for by any other physician as I had been by him. Dr. Z has shown me I was wrong. Too have two great physicians caring for me in my adult life time is a blessings! Dr. Kane and Dr. Z are amazing!!!!!
Oct 15, 2015
All I can say is - Physician is extremely good in his profession/very professional (in every way!
Oct 12, 2015
i would not recommend any doctor in the practice at this time, until the phone situation is fixed.
Oct 8, 2015
Dr. Z. showed great concern for vision problems that could have resulted from my condition and went above and beyond anything i ever expected in order to see that I had a follow up with an eye care specialist the following day.

excellent doctor very compassionate and understanding
Sep 16, 2015
I can honestly say that Dr. Z is the best Family doctor that I have ever been seen/treated by. He has helped me get my overactive thyroid under control, my diabetes is under control, he cares about everything I say and pays attention. He will spend as much time as I need with me answering questions. I have a lot of serious health conditions and he not only helps me understand, he helps me think positive and therefor act positive towards my outcomes.

#10. Provided there is a major improvement in this clinic's phone system - This problem has been ongoing for years and shows NO sign of improvement. There have been numerous editorials in the local newspaper re: this problem and nothing is ever done.

Really like Dr. Z. He is a good man.
Aug 11, 2015
Dr Zienkiewicz is professional and knowledgeable about issues and explains the situation thoroughly.
Jul 30, 2015
I was a patient of Dr Lewis. This was my first visit with Dr Z and I am very satisfied. We had a "get to know each other" conversation while he interviewed me to understand my health background. I am very comfortable with Dr Z.
Jul 22, 2015
I would definitely recommend DR. Z. to others but he would have to be working somewhere else. The Frackville office is the phone is always busy and you can't get through or no ne answers the phone. AS FOR THE EMAIL SERVICE THAT IS POOR TOO. About a year ago I was having BP issues. New Med prescribed. I could not take it. I ended in emergency room not affiliated with Geisinger. That Dr. told me to tell the Dr. I could not take the med he prescribed that something else needed to be done. Couldn't get through by phone and my email was ignored! I went for BP check. NO one listened to me. A prescription was phoned in for me. I went to pick it up and it was the med I could not take! Geisinger in Frackville is run very poorly.

I realize that I am 18 and made the decision, but my parents were not at all happy that I agreed to the HPV vaccine. Had I known about the potential side effects or had been told about them, I would have never agreed to receive this vaccine. I will not return for the next two doses and can not tell you how much I regret having had this one.

Dictating to his computer about my case made me feel disconnected from him. His huge ostentatious gold watch was too much{illegible or inappropriate content} his whole demeanor was arrogant and too sterile for a first time visit.
June 11, 2015
Dr. Z. very knowledgeable and easy to discuss medical concerns with WITHOUT FEELING RUSHED. Very pleased!

March 31, 2015
Dr. Z is the best physician I have ever had! He never rushes, is thorough, and always makes sure all of my questions are answered on the spot! Geisinger is lucky to have him. Further, I drive two hours just to continue seeing him because of how amazing his patient care is. His manner is attentive and he is always on-time, in a good mood, and shows true concern for his work! Bravo, Dr. Z!
