I was recommended to take a supplement, but not told the exact amount to bring my levels up to normal. I sought outside help to get more specific guidance (internet, pharmacist.)

Dr. Zia completely misread the situation with me. I was trying to express concerns about pregnancy, and her enthusiasm for pregnancy completely overshadowed that.

I can't say enough good things about Dr. Zia and her nurses. Our pregnancy has been a complicated one and she's always there every step trying to figure out the best way to go with how to proceed when a new problem arises.

Pleasantly surprsied when Dr. Zia called me after she returned from [...] leave to see how I was doing and helping me with my refill. My husband was recently diagnosed with [...] and she made me feel good that day she called. Treated me like a person, not just a patient or a record number.
