Houston >Zaniewski Michelle Md
“The parking is not too bad given that she shares the lot with many ther doctors and facilities.”
“The staff for the most of it has always been friendly& nice and coos' w/my kids.”
“do have to say that the receptionist is very nice but the person who you pay your money to is very rude.”
“Frankly, I don't care what the office looks like as long as I'm getting good care.”
Amazing Doctor in Houston. Thank you Dr. Zaniewski for your great work!!
I am so glad I went to see Dr.
Zaniweski. Before I went to see her, I was feeling tired, always felt like I lacked energy even after getting a full night rest. I couldn't find the energy to sustain my lifestyle which involves playing tennis and going to the gym. I was gaining weight. My PCP had me on armour thyroid but we were unable to control my levels. My co-worker is a patient of Dr. Zaniewski and recommended her. Dr.Z put me on a different medication and we worked on reaching the right dose for me which has helped me tremendously. She has been very patient with me when answering my questions and concerns. I am back to my old active routine and don't feel tired as much.
Her staff is pleasant and friendly. The wait time really depends but sometimes I find myself waiting 20-30 mins but its worth the wait for me.
Dr Zaniewski Saved my life.
I am taking the initiative to write this little note because I feel there might be others like me who have had a lot of problems finding the right Endocrinologist. Let me start with saying that I had been seeing an endocrinologist in the Medical Centre for the last 2 years for my thyroid problems. She did an ultrasound and never told me that I had issues with thyroid nodules. She just kept giving me medicines and doing my lab work. My situation did not improve.
Finally my mom asked me to see Dr Zaniewski . She is also a new patient of Dr. Zaniewski and is happy with her vast experience and her office staff. I listened to my mom and made an appointment. I feel that appointment changed my life. She did a thyroid Ultrasound in her office and found a big complex nodule in my throat and immediately got me in for a FNA biopsy. She does Ultrasound guided biopsy in her office. Couple of days after the biopsy, I got a call from their office, asking me to come in right away. Guess what, Dr Zaniewski gave me the Biopsy results and the nodule was found to have Papillary Carcinoma. I was shocked, the nodule I had for so many years with no one looking at it was a cancerous nodule.
Dr Zaniewski was very kind and assuring when she gave me the news of my thyroid cancer. She was thoughtful of my feelings and took lot of time to explain me the details of my treatment. I was so glad that finally I found some one who was highly professional and knowledgeable in her field. Her staff is very helpful and they really make you feel important and you are not just another number.
I am so thankful to my mom for referring me to Dr Zaniewski and I am thankful to Dr Zaniewski for diagnosing me.
very knowledgeable and respectful. I have read the postings here, and if you stand back and are really honest, it's all subjective. If you don't hear what you want to hear, then the Dr. is terrible? I've had thyroid disease for over 20 years and have read everything there is to read about it. So I consider myself well informed. I've been to Dr. Z 7-8 times now. I find her knowledgeable, warm, respective and caring. I am commenting on Dr. Z after I have seen her enough times to formulate an opinion. Her staff always return my phone messages within 24 hours and really seem to care. If you go to her with an open mind, and be completely honest about what you've tried and failed at, she is wonderfully receptive. I've had my share of horrible Dr's. Dr. Z isn't one of them. :-) Dr. Z is a wonderful doctor. She is extemely thorough and to the point. I am there to get answers and solutions. She is exceptionally friendly whenever I go into the office and reviews your results with you. I would recommend her!
Excellent & Caring Doctor That You Can Trust!. I recently found Dr. Z while searching for TOP Endocrinologist in Houston, TX. I made an appointment with her. Once I got to the office, I was greeted by her staff and was in the wait room about 5 minutes before being pulled back into one of the suites. I then waited for about 10 minutes. Her staff was very kind and her assistant has a great personality. Once I saw Dr. Z, she was very kind and easy to talk to. Her husband also works there, and he practiced for 25 years in India(I think). Now he's there to assist her in her practice. He was very kind and knowledgeable as well. Dr. Z has many years of experience and she seems very knowledgeable. She ask all of the right questions to make sure your diagnosis is proper. I was recently going to Dr.Patel,who is located off of Huffmeister and who is a horror of a doctor and has a staff with a horrible attitude. I'd been going to this doctor for about 2.5 yrs and had all of the symptoms for hyperthyroidism and he never put me on any medications. He just did nothing but sat around on his lazy butt and smiled, took my money, and stated nothing was wrong with me. My family doctor, Dr. Nancy Naghavi, had to diagnose me! However, Dr.Z made sure that she re-started the process of getting the proper diagnosis of my thyroid, regardless of what the other doctors had said. She restarted bloodwork, re-did the biopsy, and made sure that my thyroid was working properly by putting me on the right medication and getting my levels down to the proper levels. I was itching like crazy for the past 2 years and Dr.Z came in and gave me the right medication I needed and saved my life. This is a doctor that cares and takes all of the necessary steps to do what she can to properly diagnose you and help you! I love her and her staff! After the second visit in her office, her staff knew me by name! I am very picky about the doctors that I choose and Dr.Z is on my list of doctors that I would recommend! Thanks Dr.Z! I love you and your staff!
Best Doctor in City.
I learnt about Dr. Zaniewski's from H Texas Magzine under Top Docs, while waiting for my flight at the airport. My physician at that time whom I had been seeing for my diabetes had moved out of town and I was desperate to find another one. I immediately called and the receptionist who answered my call made me feel welcome and worked around my tight schedule. It has been four years now and I feel so oblighed to H Texas, and the delayed flight for introducing this great doctor to me.
On my first visit at her office, during the physical exam they found something in my throat and ordered a thyroid Ultrasound . This was done conveniently at her office and it turned out to be a big nodule sitting in my thyroid. Dr Zaniewski later did a Ultrasound guided biopsy and it turned out to be suspicious for Thyroid cancer. That was scary for me, but Dr Zaniewski reassured me . She has excellent bed side manners. I found her very talented and knowledgable in her field. Her staff was very sympathetic to me and said that was something they treat routinely at their office. I was sent for surgery and since then I have being following up at her office under her expert care. Dr Zaniewski has a wonderful staff which I feel play a great role in patient care and over all patient satisfaction. She also takes care of my diabetes ,I have lost weight, my blood sugars are better now , my HbA1C has improved and I feel a whole lot better. Thank you Dr Zaniewski, For me you are " simply the Best." doctor in the city.
Read this...and then go find you a Doctor that cares.. I really don't know where to start but I'll try to make this quick. I really wished that I would have researched this Dr. before I had my first interview. I want to say that Dr. Z isn't all that bad. I don't like the fact that when I went to get my biopsy results that she wasn't there to give them to me. In a nutshell, her office staff is Ghetto, Rude, and unprofessional. They did not confirm my insurance and wanted me to pay for a procedure that was covered by my insurance company. This happened twice. When I had my biopsy the other Dr. (her husband) cell phone kept going off. Also, after the biopsy Dr. Z was giving me instuctions on what to do as she was walking out of the room. I had to get a refund because they over charged me. The office is dirty and they have stacks and stacks of patient files out in the open. They use out dated equipment and unqualified medical staff. Oh..unethical as well. The assistant who took my blood pressure asked me to get on the scale. I told her I was here two weeks ago and my weight did not change. When the PA saw me in the room, she was surprised that my weight was done by 13 lbs. I advised her that I was not weighed. She was like well it says it on your chart and I told her that is why this is my last visit to this office. The assistant lied on my charts. She didn't even weight me. I want to pay for my office visit...standing in a line, while the office person ate her food. I've called to get test results and they are rude over the phone. Once I was told I did not have cancer it was a hugh relief. Not because of not having cancer but because I didn't have to set another foot in that office. They want me to come back for a follow up. I'd rather live with a lump in my throat then to ever step foot in this office. I would advised anyone to go somewhere else for your thyriod or diabetic needs. This Dr. maybe good but to me her office is a reflection of her and her of her office. This place is like a free clinic....
Very caring and smart. She is a really kind helpful smart lady.I have seen her for 6 years. Her nurse practitioner has seen me sometimes and she is verry helpful.Strongly recommended
Not a day spa -- but a good doctor.. I have been seeing Dr Z for almost 2 yrs. She was the 3rd thyroid doctor I sought out because the others thought raising my synthroid level was all that was necessary and I was exhausted, hair-trigger irritated, and at my wits end. I was unhappy with her initially because she insisted on seeing me nearly every month and started lessening my synthroid amounts and adding cytomel. Over the course of a year, with all those appointments, yes, there were some visits when I thought I might not go back. Sometimes I was put-off by the staff and I was impatient for results. I insisted on seeing the Dr each time because I had a number of issues I was concerned about. She sent me to a specialist for other tests so she was definitely listening. Yes, my ultrasounds were performed in-house which I felt saved me an additional trip and visit (and saved me one ppo charge since I was already at the office). I will continue to see her even though I do not feel like I am in a day spa when I am there. Patients have to be proactive in their treatment. They also have to be willing to submit to the tests and put in the effort to facilitate their recovery. As far as I am concerned, I am there to see Dr Z and will continue to use her regardless of the "art" on the walls.
Horrible Practice. Staff was very rude and unprofessional, especially her husband. The wait time was ridiculous and she was only in the room for about 2 minutes. She has poor bed side manners and made me feel like I couldn't ask her anything. Like I was wasting HER TIME. It was just a horrible expericence everytime I went to an appointment. I finally had to find another doctor. Oh, and beware of the unnecessary and costly tests.
