    Honestly I have never experienced a doctor's appointment like I did with this doctor. Essentially I needed to ensure my lab work orders were all properly placed as it is always convoluted at UCSF Primary Care. He was borderline rude despite me saying very little. He said "um" more times than actual words and his attitude was one of complete inconvenience of having to "assess" me.

    I call Dr. Ziv the "Conductor" of my medical team. He consults with everyone on my team and ensures that there is communication with everyone. As a result I feel I have the best team of medical professionals taking care of me.
