DR. Zove was amazing!! he took the time to really listen and talk with us. my son said he felt as comfortable as he had with Dr Chesik. and that's a big deal for him. they loved her and when she left they were very upset.
Dr. Zove is the best! He cares so much for my son and always makes our visits great!
Dr. Zove always approaches my daughter with warmth, smiles, and respect. My daughter brought her favorite stuffed animal and asked that he give it a check up too, and he said absolutely. Before every step of her check up he asked her "Is it ok if I..." His patience, kindness, and engagement with her as a toddler is wonderful. Keeping a toddler at ease in a doctor office is no easy task, but he does it flawlessly.

Dr. Zove recognized that my 2 year old was a little scared when he came in. He ducked down to her level and did each part of his assessment on her beloved stuffed bunny before asking her if it was ok to check her. He was very positive and engaging, and she was smiling and giving him high fives by the end of the visit.
I have had no bad experiences while visiting this office, all have been positive.
