My first visit here after all the positive reviews . I came for an annual . They were pretty quick with blood work and EKG. Probably because I was there very early at 10am. I tried to tell her about myskin problems because i know she is specialized in this area. I have eczema and very dry hands. Instead of prescribing creams or lotion she gave me an allergy pill. I have to call and request a cream or lotion . Then the nurse wasn't so friendly . She hardly speak. After my ekg she just walked out. Didn't even tell me that I was done and that I can go home . This is really bad experience given the fact that I went out of my way to see dr tsukerman. The receptionist was very courteous and helpful though. I think they will be more friendllier if I was Russian.

Dr. Tsukerman put me at ease right away. She was very helpful and friendly. The wait was a bit long but that was because I was a new patient. The nurse took care of my needed tests right away and Dr.Tsukerman is willing to see me on the weekend to go over the results which I feel is above and beyond.

I really like Dr. Tsukerman. She is very thorough and kind. When I was having issues, she send out for a very through blood test to truly look into the cause of my problems. She's also the first primary doctor totell me to take probiotics along with and after antibiotics. Her front desk staff are not always the nicest, but she more than makes up for it.

I absolutely wouldn't trust anyone but Dr Tsuckerman with my health. She's thorough, efficient, knowledgeable, and is one of the rare physicians who understands that learning about her patients' lives and emotional well-being is just as important as what may be ailing them physically.

DISGUSTING!!!!!!!! She was rude and had an attitude. To me it just seemed like she wanted to leave the room as fast as she can by advising me to do a bunch of useless testing. I don't know if she wasjust having a bad day or what, but nevertheless i would never go back. The girls on the front desk were amazing although i don't understand how they are still working there if she treats them the same as she treats the patients. Another issue aside from the rudeness, is who in the world was the man that walked in and out of my room. I highly doubt that he has any medical experience or any business in that office in general, and truthfully speaking that man needs a shower. In conclusion, i just want to say a big thanks to the girls and the nurse for great assistance and treatment, but in terms of returning to the doctor for treatment.... I WOULD NEVER!

I was a patient of doctor Tsukerman for about a year. Every appointment was starting with 15 minutes of Zhanna wining about her personal problems, which I find extremely unprofessional. No wonder you have to wait forever to see her, ifshe is complaining how tough her life is to patients during the patients visit time.

DR. TSUKERMAN IS A REAL PROFESSIONAL WITH STRONG MEDICAL knowledge. The check in staff was very polite and nice to me during my visit. This was one of my most enjoyable visit in many years. I will definitely go back tothat office. The wait time was not long, approximately 20 minutes which is not bad at all. I went on a week day, not on a weekend. Dr. Tsukerman really took time with me and paid attention at all little details when we went over my family history of certain diseases. She took blood and urine at her office and already called me back with my results. Dr. Tsukerman was very knowledgeable about my condition. She prescribed me medications that she knew would require preauthorizations. Her secretary took care of that preauthorization process right away and I did nothing. All I had to do was to go to the my local pharmacy and pick up my meds. Definitely I will return to them !
