I cannot stress how great Dr. Zeiger was. My travel plans recently changed and I was so happy to have found someone close by who could see me quickly since I know vaccinations can be time-sensitive. I was seen right away;Dr. Zeiger was very informative, gave me tons of information, and politely answered all of my questions. I received 2 vaccinations right there in the office and the others I was able to get from my pharmacy the same day. I was in and out in under 20 minutes. I will definitely be back!

I went to Dr. Zeiger for a test, but he didn't offer much insight into how to interpret the results and I felt like he was very dismissive of my questions. I left his office not feeling very confident about hisso-called expertise in infectious diseases. Moreover, there was no follow-up after the test was completed except for a large bill from his office. I had wondered why he had so many available time slots for his office on ZocDoc, but after meeting him, I understand now why patients don't want to see him. Seek someone else, who has better bedside manner and is more attentive to you.

I like Dr. Zeiger a lot. He gets to the point, and is very helpful. I initially used him just to get shots/vaccines for when I travel, but I started going to him regularly. I had an emergency, and I wasable to see him even when he was booked for the day, he fit me in last minute. He is very knowledgeable, smart, and helpful! Best doctor I have had thus far!

Dr. Zeiger is a professional. He has encyclopedic knowledge of infectious diseases and is very quick and to-the-point with vaccinations against such diseases. He's also very good at giving instructions for oral vaccinations and with written materials teaching you about the vaccinations you're receiving.

The office is located in a very nice building near NYU. The location is very easy to find. Dr Zeiger saw me right away. The problem was not one that he necessarily deals with so he referred me to an incredibledermatologist just a few blocks away. He simply made a quick call and got me in the door on short notice. Dr Zeiger is higly professional and clearly has excellent contacts in the medical field. Thanks to him, my problem will hopefully soon be resolved!

The doctor send me to a imaging center. More than two months passed after I had the imaging. The results have been available to him for more than 6 weeks. He didn't care to review them, neither to send them tome despite of the fact that I obviously needed them. The bill came promptly though. I went to the doctor's office and was met by a very rude assistant. I paid the bill and asked for the results from the imaging. The doctor showed up and told me he would review them by the end of the day and asked me to wait. I responded that it was my lunch break and I would prefer to get the results in my mailbox. He promised to review them and to send them to me by the end of the day, This happened 3 weeks ago, I haven't received anything, even a phone call from him. I called two more time. They always answered they would be sending the results by the end of the day. I haven't received results, neither a phone call yet. I do not feel well but there is no way to make the doctor do his job. I guess if I did not pay my bill they will be much more proactive trying to speak with me. No, I would not recommend this doctor.

I like Dr. Zeiger. He is very knowledgeable and no-nonsense, which is exactly what I need for managing my chronic illness. His "here's what we're gonna do" mentality puts my mind at ease regarding my treatment plan. His office is convenientlylocated in midtown, and also conveniently located near two diagnostic labs for any lab work you may need. He is quick and efficient, but thorough.

Dr. Zeiger is a straight-forward, just-the-facts type. He is kind, but just not warm-and-fuzzy in his bedside manner. He is factual and practical. If this works for you in a doctor, then he's the man for you.

I was nervous of going to the Doctor, because I haven't been to one in 5 years, but I enjoyed this visit. I needed shots/vaccines for my trip to Peru so I found Dr. Zeiger on ZocDoc. Dr. Zeiger is veryvery smart, and prepared. He knew exactly what shots I needed, and provided me with lots of information. He also let me know which shots were covered by my insurance! Very Helpful! I also like his personality a lot, very nice guy and easy to talk to. I visited a pediatrician for 25 years and have been looking for a new "regular" doctor to go to, and I will be making Dr. Zeiger my new doctor. I also did not have to wait, I was 5 minutes late and got to see Dr. Zeiger right away. Highly Recommended!!!

Dr. Zeiger was great - super thorough, very caring, and gave me some much needed hope about finding a solution for a difficult-to-cure problem I've been dealing with. He made me feel totally comfortable, and asked questions that indicated hewas really listening and trying to get the full picture. I didn't feel rushed at all - he was very patient when I had questions to ask and shared a lot of his expertise so I felt educated on the situation. Highly recommend!
