"Dr. Zaidi is a kind man. He is patient and want you to understand every little detail before you leave his office. I liked when he told me "write me down all the questions you have and we will see them together". Sometimes Doctors are always rushing just want to get done with you. He was different, I will recommend him to everyone if they looking for a surgeon. He is so nice."
