Modern Day Dr. Welby
Written by: GG, Dallas Patient of: Scott Zashin
Dr. Zashin and his staff are etxraordinarily compatible. They give patients hope with dignity, compassion, and knowlegde. My experience with them has been life changing to say the least. Thank you for finding out what was wrong and the treatment. Everyday is not a pain day nor is every day a sad day. This office is the gold standard for healthcare. I am a patient and a nurse. Unsung heroes with their kindness and their own beautiful lights that inspire.

Greatest Doctor
Written by: smccaghren, Rockwall Patient of: Scott Zashin
I just want to say I respect Dr. Zashin more than any physician I have had in my 65 years. He iis caring for his patients, and shows great respect and goes beyond to help patients with the problems they have. He is well scheduled of patients, without waiting and most doctors are not this thorough. He personally returns phone calls if needed and that is very impressive to me. If he cannot handle a certain situation, I totally trust his recommendations on any other physician. He is a gift in his field and his staff is wonderful. I cannot say enough good things about all of them.

Kind, understanding and extremely competent

I think Dr. Zashin is kind, understanding and extremely competent in diagnosing the patient and taking care of you.

Excellent
Written by: Me, Arlington Patient of: Scott Zashin
It has been my experience that many specialists do not listen to the patient and Rheumatologists are at the top of the snobbish heap...and then there is Dr. Zashin...he is definitely a cut above all other doctors that I or any of my friends have been to...Dr. Zashin never tells a patient it is all in their head, he doesn´t even imply it...Dr. Zashin takes all the time he and the patient needs...it is very refreshing.

Compassionate Services
Written by: My mom, Dallas Patient of: Scott Zashin
I am a patient of Dr. Zashin. I was in excruciating pain for the last 4-5years- it became unbearable. After Job losses, many dollars in MD bills, being humiliated by providers I felt like I had been brought out of a torrential storm with no end in sight. Dr Zashin was patient kind, understanding and human. I cried the first year in his office because I could not believe how he began this aggressive workup to find out the problem. The problem was I had RA, fibromyalgia and finally someone who did not regard how much pain and disabling things were. At every visit he listened, he was encouraging, he was a compassionate human being as well as a scientist. Many times I felt guilty for not being a great pt, but he was so reassuring and understanding that pain turns us into people that we don´t recognize. All Of his staff shared the same incredible values (Kindness, expertise, flexibility, understanding of pain in the human condition. Dr. Zashin is the best teacher that one could hope for and all of his staff are strong supporting cast. One feels renewed and hopeful when in their care. Just when I thought that my life would be riddled with pain and dysfunction and continuous humiliation, I found great medical, nursing and office care and I believed that my health would get better with good management. As I write this review I am reminded of the poor medical care I had once upon a time and the excellent care I have, and this becomes a testimony about not giving in to despair when you are ill, but keep trying to find someone to address your medical care even if it is 5 years and 34+ doctors that you leave behind. Thank you to this practice that my life is being restored everyday. I do believe that good medicine like Dr. Welby is still being practiced.

Scott Zashin M.D. is an Excellent Doctor
Written by: GG, Dallas Patient of: Scott Zashin
He listens to you and takes the time necessary to understand your concerns. Not cheap, but a doctor that takes time with you cannot afford to be. Staff is top notch.

Scott Zashin MD Top Clinician
Written by: CC, Dallas Patient of: Scott Zashin
Dr. Zashin is a brilliant clinician who was able to tease out a diagnosis that is rare in the South. Numerous competent specialists had been unable to diagnose my disease over several years. So, I was headed to The Mayo Clinic in Rochester. I suspected that my problem was cold mediated and Minnesota doctors should be cold experts. Knowing Dr. Zashin, my wife suggested I see him first. After conducting a thorough initial exam, Zashin trotted in with medical books and color printouts that supported his working diagnosis. He recommended follow-up with another specialist to confirm the diagnosis. Not only was Zashin spot on, so was my wife's suggestion.

Over the Top for Zashin and Staff
Written by: Africa, dallas Patient of: Scott Zashin
Dr. Scott Zashin is a bright spot in the complicated, overburdened world of practicing medicine. I have been a patient for 5+ years and am completely satisfied with the care and expertise of Dr. Zashin and his very capable staff. Dr. Zashin is personable and professional, intelligent and able to relate to patients and their level. His staff is competent, friendly and dependable. I have never waited more that 3 minutes to be seen, from the waiting room, to exam, to blood work. I am confident that I am in the right place receiving the best medical care and information available. I would highly recommend Dr. Zashin to any suffering with rheumatoid arthritis and associated diseases.

Amazing doctor with fantastic staff!
Written by: DP, Austin Patient of: Scott Zashin
While there are many other doctors that are near my home I travel 400 miles roundtrip fro Austin for each of my semiannual visits to Dr. Zashin. I've never experienced the type of care - both medical care and concern for the patient that I receive from him and his staff. When I first visited Dr. Zashin I was at a physical and emotional low - not knowing what the rest of my life would be like. However, his positive nature and exceptional diagnostic and prescriptive skills have me functioning at a peak and my life is far better than I ever thought it would be. He's simply a tremendous doctor that genuinely cares for his patients.

Thank you Dr. Zashin

I feel so grateful to have a doctor like you. You are always so pleasant but also very helpful with all my health problems. I wish every doctor would be as thorough and kind as you and everyone else in your practice. Thank you

Quality Care
Written by: Tita, Dallas Patient of: Scott Zashin
Gives prompt, easy-to-understand feedback on lab results. Office hours flexible enough to
accommodate patient needs. Asks pertinent questions which indicate knowledge of patient's medical history. While doesn't take Medicare, costs are reasonable w/o it. During office visits he really seems to be mentally engaged with patient care; he's really "thinking" about what the patient needs and what might improve the patient's health and well being.

He's the best
Written by: happy patient, Dallas Patient of: Scott Zashin
It would be enough to have a doctor who is as knowledgeable in his field as Dr. Zashin, but to get that plus a doctor who treats each patient as an individual is icing on the cake. He gives you his complete attention and listens to all your medical issues, not just the ones that relate to arthritis, fibromyalgia, or whatever your primary problem is. Also, if "normal" treatments don't work, he doesn't hesitate to try alternative treatments. I can't say enough good things about Dr. Z! I wish I could bottle him and share him with everyone. That goes for his staff as well. They do their jobs efficiently and effectively and are as kind and compassionate as Dr. Z is.

He is wonderful
Written by: Julie, Dallas, TX Patient of: Scott Zashin
I have never had such wonderful care as I do in Dr. Zashin´s office. He is a kind, thoughtful man and physician. I tell everyone that might need a doctor that he is the best and the one to see for rheumatoid arthritis or related conditions. He is a wonderful example of the best doctor I have ever known.

Excellent, Compassionate Patient Care
Written by: mimis08, Dallas, Texas Patient of: Scott Zashin
I established care with Dr. Zashin more than 10 years ago. I count my blessings daily to be under the care of one of the best physicians I've ever met. Dr. Zashin and his staff respect the needs and privacy of their patients. The longevity and tenure of each of his employees bears testament to the fact that Dr. Z and his team deliver compassion and excellence in health care. The office is pristine and staff attitudes are great. Dr. Zashin takes the time to get to know his patients. I believe that his patients know who he is as well. Although he is not on my health plan, I feel that I am cared for physically and emotionally. I do not believe that I could find this in any other practice. Prior to seeing Dr. Zashin initially, I had been on a quest for over two decades to try to make some sense of the symptoms I'd been experiencing which at times felt debilitating to me. I owned a business, had been employed in healthcare, and was a busy wife and mother of four children. Other Rheumatologists consulted were part of huge practices, busy clinicians or indifferent solo practitioners. I often felt like a "number" in the huge microcosm of a healthcare system and would leave each visit feeling confused, concerned and still exhausted. Dr. Zashin has unbelievable patience, and is very gentle. He is always concerned and I've never felt rushed or dissatisfied. He understands a flare or a "bad day", and has often called after hours or on a weekend to see how I am feeling. Dr. Z is more than "just a physician". He is a caring friend.

Best Doctor and Staff that I have found
Written by: bgentrym, Richardson Patient of: Scott Zashin
I can't say enough about Dr. Zashin and his Staff. I was very ill for several months, I went to 7 doctors and 3 emergency rooms of course no one knew my personality and every doctor that I saw had the wonderful advice that I needed anti depressants. I kept trying to tell everyone that I was not a depressed person that I was very Ill, I was finally sent to Dr. Zashin. Dr. Zashin not only listened but he is the kindest doctor that I have found. He jumped right into trying to help me and he did, you can say that he had to piece the puzzle together. He never stopped. What I appreciate is the fact that even though he put me on medication he tried to get me off of it as soon as he could. I love his staff every person in that office is very nice and friendly, it's pretty strange when you look forward to your doctor's visit its like going to visit friends. I recommend Dr. Zashin to anyone that I know is in need of help. I honestly feel like this man saved my life.

He´s the best
