Verified Patient Reviews

5 out of 5 stars

I like Dr. Z. I wish he's closer. I come from Wallingford and Dr. Z is in New Britain. But since it's 2x a year, it's doable.

Dr. Zawidniak was very much to the point in his assessment, being very patient and not diverging into other tangents. He stated his opinion clearly, telling me what to expect and how best to address my issue. I am thankful for his accepting me as his patient.

Dr Z listened to my frustration of having severe pain I told him I was diagnosed with fibromyalgia and have had it for years . I never know from one day to the next on how I’ll feel. It sucks the life out of me! He listened to me ordered blood work I’ve never had. One marker had very high levels of inflammation. We are working on that now . I get totally exhausted just showering and have to rest a few minutes to get dressed and rest again. I felt very confident that he will help me Only wish there was a department that would focus on fibromyalgia. Most Drs think it’s all in the patients head! There are more people out there who have it . We need some quality of life with fibromyalgia it’s discouraging. Thank you Dr Z for giving me some hope .
