Dr. Z was great in doing my intake and talking to me about my plan for future medication and maintenance. Wait time was ridiculous though, especially for an evening appointment. Had to wait 45 minutes to be seen.

I had a pleasant and welcoming experience at Dr. Z's office. His receptionist Sonia was very warm and friendly which helped ease my anxiety initially going into the appointment. Dr. Z was knowledgeable, attentive and provided all the necessaryinformation I needed to move forward in my plan of care.

I had the best experience with Dr. Zinzuvadia. Aside from being very personable and kind, he had a fantastic bedside manner, was extremely thorough, and really listened to me. Sonia at the front desk was also very helpful. I was seen right away. Overall, I highly recommend Dr. Z.

He was patient and he seemed to take the information I gave him seriously. He even changed the drug he initially wanted to give me based on my input that I did not want to gain weight. I would, and will, happily see him again.

I think I could have found someone better than him. He didn’t ask any questions it was me who wanted to tell him everything. I thought he would ask questions and would try to understand what I was going through.

Dr. Z was great. He was attentive, engaging, and has a very comforting and professional presence. His receptionist is a sweetheart who chatted and laughed with me before my first visit, making me feel very relaxed and welcome. The office islovely and clean. During my time with Dr. Z he took his time to really listen and evaluate me. My prescriptions were ready immediately, and they have a very open and flexible schedule for follow-up appointments in as little time as a week-2 weeks away. I really enjoyed my experience with Dr. Z, and I feel I have finally found a psych in the city that I am satisfied with.

Dr. Zinzuvadia was extremely kind, efficient and knowledgeable. It was my first time meeting with him and felt he took the time to get to know me and understand my concerns. He was very informative about what he was prescribing andwhy. I had to rush back to work and he was respectful of my time. I highly recommend him as a psychiatrist! His secretary is also very kind and helpful.

Waited over 45 minutes for my appointment. Absolute worst experience I have ever had with a doctor. The receptionist loudly yelled across the room about what prescription I was coming in for. I went in to see the doctor and heread the stats of another patient because he brought in someone else’s file. I told him I was trying to cut back on my ADD medication and he berated me telling me I needed to take MORE meds and tried to convince me to switch to another mediation (that he had posters of all over his office so was basically being paid to push). He argued with me when I said I didn’t want to (I only went to him because my dr was away for a month) and wouldn’t give me my full prescription and said I would have to come back in a two weeks, likely so he could get an additional payment. He is unprofessional and incredibly rude.

This is one of the most unprofessional doctors that I have ever seen in my life. Back in October of 2017 I was attacked in Chelsea, NY and am still suffering from PTSD. I was originally seeing a psychologist and whileshe was very nice I felt that I needed to make an appointment with a psychiatrist who actually treats PTSD. I thought that Doctor Z. would be a great fit but BOY WAS I WRONG. Not only did he dismiss my incident and feelings of anxiety, dealing with every day life and the fear or going back to work; he quickly decided to prescribe meds for me after 15 mins of speaking. The receptionist however, was very sweet and the wait time was fine however I will NEVER return back to this doctor again.

So glad that I went to see Dr. Z after years of receiving psychiatric treatment from primary care doctors. I know that even if my new medicine doesn't work out, I will be able to get support through follow-up.

I've been seeing Dr. Z since March and making the appointment was one of my best decisions of 2016, I originally made an appointment through ZocDoc, but needed to see him earlier. His office squeezed me in that same day becausethey knew it was urgent. I immediately felt at ease and that i was in good hands. He is easy to speak to and takes a really rational approach to his practice. His wife works with him and is so nice and really easy to talk while you wait. Would recommend to anyone!

Only available on the weekends since the other office is in Whiteplains, Dr Z is nice, but can be a bit brisk with sessions? I prefer someone who asks a few more questions to explore my behavior to enhance treatment. Also the secretary is a bit overwhelmed it seems.

Very frustrating experience. He just pushes prescriptions. He doesn't talk with you much at all. Each appointment is roughly 3-5 minutes in length. Almost no discussion of underlying issues. Each appointment is just an excuse to give you moremeds. The prescriptions are for 2 weeks at a time, so you have to keep going back. It's a hassle to go to the doctor 2x a month, especially when there's no real therapy, it's just that you have to stop by to pick up another two-week prescription. I wouldn't recommend this doctor to anyone ever.

Proper and thorough psychiatry treatment is expensive and is very sad that not everyone can have access to it. This Doctor even though he accepts insurances, it doesn't mean that you'll receive the adequate treatment you need to improve anycondition. He basically sees around 5 patients in 30minutes . That right there tells you he is not getting a proper gathering of information. He forgets important details and sometimes you feel that he is not concentrating on what he is doing. He just want to discharge you and go to the next. He just prescribes but does not do any psychotherapy. He doesn't even offer it. Which in my opinion is one of the most important part of a psychiatric treatment. I come from a family entirely of physicians. Sadly they don't live in NYC. But I grew watching a true devotion for the profession and their patients. As incredible humans they are they are also even though they practice in different specialties they have a great all round knowledge of the human health and pharmacology. Which with this doctor I have my doubts. He was surprised to know that you can get the flu even if you have being vaccinated. I recommend this doctor for a temporary thing. If you need to get a prescription until you find someone better that can actually make you improve. If you don't have the money I suggest to keep searching , they are still doctors out there(few) truly compassionate and devoted to their professions. I most say that his son who works with him (doesn't take insurance ) was very nice, he was the one who called the pharmacy to resolve some problems that I encounter.
