My sister recommended Dr.Zalatimo to me and told me nothing but wonderful things about him. And she could't have been more right. His bedside manner is fantastic. He cares and will do whatever he can to get you feeling better. I've had numerous surgeries and he has been there with me whenever I needed him. I had to go to the hospital on Christmas eve for an issue and within 20 minutes of my ER doctor calling him, Dr. Zalatimo was walking in my room and was so compassionate. I've had to call his answering service after hours a couple of times and within minutes he called me back and saw me first thing the next morning. I've never had a doctor like him and I love him. He is the best. Highly recommend him to anyone..

I have been to many different gynecologists, for enodmetrosis. The only dr that took the time to find the problem was Dr. Z. I was told by other dr's that I would never have children, and because Dr. Z took the time to listen, and care, I have two WONDERFUL little boys. I have been going to him for 6+ years, and I couldn't be more happy with the care I get from him. He also has the most pleasant, caring, friendly, staff I have ever met. I would HIGHLY recommend Dr. Zalatimo for anyone looking for a GREAT OBGYN!!!

Pros: caring, straight forward, pleasant, compassionate

Cons: NONE!!!

Let me begin by saying I had superb care in another city for 15+ years.

When I initially moved here, the first gynecologist I went to was pleasant but too often it seemed i was seeing the "physician's assistant" rather than the doctor. A year or so later a lawyer told me that that doctor had had several malpractice lawsuits.

Then I, unfortunately, went to Dr. Zalatimo who did not seem above board or compassionate. "After" cutting me for a biopsy, he asked for my permission and had me sign a consent form. Needless to say, I was sickened by the experience.

Upon requesting my medical records (which wasn't much from his office since I had supplied my historical info to him), his office wanted to charge me $25.00 and would not release them without this payment. This office is about greed and procedures that women do not need.

I would NEVER recommend Dr. Zalatimo or his office to anyone. My subsequent gynecologist was horrified that he would perform such a procedure on me. When she retired, she GAVE ME ALL OF MY medical records at no charge. (Now, that is a 5***** health CARE provider!)

Gratefully, I have since found a replacement gynecologist who is absolutely wonderful and kind; very knowledgeable, and who I have the utmost respect and confidence in. (If you see a 5* rating for another gynecologist in this review category, you will know that's who it is.) In the meantime, I would NOT RECOMMEND Zalatimo to anyone unless you are a masochist.

PROS: Absolutley NONE
CONS: Greedy, unethical

If you are a woman who is in need of a good OB/GYN, you should go to Dr. Zalatimo. His practice includes all aspects of the female reproductive system, obstetrics, gynecology, infertility, advanced laparoscopic surgery and urinary incontinence. New patients are welcomed. The doctor is very thorough and really good. The office staff and nurses are also very good.
