Nerve conduction studies are very unpleasant tests. This was no exception, but the doctor was patient with me and took the time I needed to recuperate from one series of test to the next. His explanations were clear enough I felt comfortable and confident that they had enough information with what was done, to make it unnecessary to go through any more of the needle tests (which were quite painful for me). Very kind, thoughtful doctor who was very knowledgable and skillful. Without violating HIPPA laws, he told me about another person who had a great deal of difficulty with this test who was also a healthcare professional. He was just good and I appreciated his kindness and sense of humor. Nevertheless, I hope to NEVER have to endure this test again.

I am very grateful for Dr. Z! He is very patient with me as I tend to get emotional sometimes. I believe he can empathize with the frustrations after being in the car accident and the effects it's had. He is also conservative and I appreciate that very much.
