In Nov. 2016, I brought a family friend to be evaluated by Dr. Zedek. The experience was pleasant and couldn’t have gone better. All the staff members were friendly, professional and made you feel welcome. Dr. Zedek was prompt and made us feel like family members. His knowledge and experience was impressive as he conducted the intake. He took his time with us and made us feel comfortable as he rendered his diagnosis. Dr. Zedek is exemplary and a credit to his profession. I highly recommend him and his organization.

If it were possible to post zero stars I would, but to warn everyone I'm forced to give him at least one star. This man should not have a license to practice mental health. He does not 'believe' in manic episodes, he does not 'believe' in ADHD, he does not 'believe' in blackouts caused by a medication he prescribed, he does not 'believe' in anxiety disorders. Yes you read that correctly, he is a psychiatrist that does not 'believe' in some very common mental health issues.
He shows no signs of listening to his patients. He has no time to talk to you because he's in town once per month, so his 'appointments'? They last for ten minutes INCLUDING intake appointments.
Pharmacies in the area filling his scripts each month run out of that medication because it is what he will prescribe to ALL his patients. Regardless of the patient, he will prescribe the 'flavor of the month' medication. Unless you believe one medication treats every mental disorder, there's something amiss here.
SHAME ON YOU DR. ZEDEK!!! Please be informed!!! FIRST HE WRITES HIS OWN REVIEWS! THE POSITIVE REVIEWS WERE NOT WRITTEN BY PATIENTS!!! Many are suffering needlessly because Dr. Zedek's Office prescribes ONLY WHAT THE LOBBYISTS PAY HIM TO PRESCRIBE (rather than what HE KNOWS they need) REGARDLESS OF YOUR CONDITION!!! IF YOU WANT YOUR NEEDS TO BE IGNORED AND DESIRE ONLY MEDICATIONS WHICH HE'S PAID TO PROMOTE, THEN THIS IS THE DR FOR YOU! When I moved to Las Vegas and sought out a Dr. to refill my Rx for paxil (which I'd been taking for over 20 years with no problem.) HE INSISTED that I switch to some crazy ANTI_PSYCHOTIC MEDICATION!!!! I had the most horrible side effects imaginable. I went back and requested that he resume my Paxil BUT HE REFUSED, telling me to go home and reduce the dosage. ON MY WAY OUT, IN THE RECEPTION AREA- I NOTICED PENS, WRITING TABLETS AND MANY OTHER ITEMS SPORTING THE EXACT NAME OF THE MEDICATION HE WAS INSISTING I TAKE!!! For those of you who don't know, MEDICAL LOBBYISTS PAY DRS VERY, VERY HEFTY FEES TO PROMOTE THEIR MEDICATION >>>INCLUDING GIVING THEM VACATIONS TO THE BAHAMAS ETC. In one Office I know of, receptionists were given $1000 just to get the lobbyist in the Office to talk to the Dr. DR ZEDEK DOES NOT CARE IF YOU SUFFER, HE ONLY CARES ABOUT GETTING RICHER THAN HE ALREADY IS. SHAME ON YOU DR. ZEDEK!!!!
Dr. Zedek left to open a new location, and left me in the care of a nurse who immediately switched my meds, causing me to gain thirty pounds and feel absolutely terrible. This went on for a full year, before he returned to the Eastern office. The first thing he said to me was "I would not have put you on this medication", and switched me to something else. I lost over ten pounds that month, and was diagnosed with a heart condition less than two weeks after that. If this is what you want your life to look like, go see Dr. Zedek. Regarding the reviews of this doctor, look at all the negative ones listed here and everywhere else, and know that he directs his patients to write good things about him to try and counter all the negatives. After telling me that "he would not have put me on this medication", he then asked me to write positive reviews on him. He told me exactly what to say, and even told me what sites to post on. 1 star, because there's no option for zero...enough said??
Dr. Zedek saw me and, after 35 years of struggling with anxiety, panic and depression, just trying to get through the chores of each day, like grocery shopping, kids, job, he was able to help me with a medication to become "normal" feeling, able to take on the tasks of every-day life. I can now travel across the country to visit my family!! His office is currently well-staffed and functions at a high level of efficiency. I am still seeing Dr., and highly recommend him to anyone still fighting anxiety and/or depression!!
Do not go to this Wacko! He prescribed a medication for my son that I later found out is proven to cause pediatric diabetes. This medication would never be given to a teenager. The office staff will never return calls, we showed up for appointment and no one was there and they never called me to cancel.
Dr Zedek is a great psychiatrists. After years of depression and over 5 different psychiatrists treating me, Dr Z got me better in less than 3 months. He had me try a new medication combination and this made a big difference. The cloud began to lift after a month of treatment. I still feel great and it has been over a year since I was first treated.
Thank you Dr Z.

The only positive to this doctor would be for a drug addict looking for an easy script. If that's what you're looking for, this is your guy. I am not surprised that I am not the only bad review (to say the least) on this doc. My son is only 5 years old and only recently diagnosed with ADHD and struggling in school terribly. I have to admit that I am very ignorant on the subject but I am actively trying to educate myself with books, support groups, etc and was looking for a doctor to work with me to help my son. Dr. Zedek is not it at all. When I tried to ask questions about treatments and voiced a concern over side effects he FLIPPED OUT! When I referenced a book I had read he basically told me ""HOW DARE YOU BRING A BOOK TO A DOCTOR""S OFFICE"". He even tried to compare my lack of trust in him to a patient questioning their doctor's breast cancer treatment and suggested that one should, ""just take care of the lump in your breast yourself"". Are you kidding me?!?! Instead of trying to figure out why the ADHD meds were giving my son rage and aggresion symptoms (dopamine overload perhaps - per the book I am reading) he just wrote him a script to combat the side effects of the first script, He wanted me to put my 5 year old (hyper and inattentive but very sweet, loving, and intelligent) on anti-psychotics! I think not. I am not going to condemn my 5 year old to a life of pills because some doctor is out to make an easy dollar off of every script he writes. And despite what he says, he is TERRIBLE with kids!!!

I read some reviews on another site about Dr. Zedek and went today. He was professional and kind and refilled my old prescription and we are trying a new one out for some situational depression I've been dealing with. I'm going to see him next month for a follow up. I felt comfortable in his little office and everyone who worked there was kind. The only negative I can say is that the wait was a little long but the office's magazines kept me entertained. I'm pleased and I would reccomend him to a friend. - Melissa, Wisconsin.

YES!!! Ever since I was abused at Dr. Zedek's Eastern Ave. Office and subsequently started reading reviews of Dr. Zedek & Dr. Jay Somers, I KNEW DR. ZEDEK WAS WRITING HIS OWN REVIEWS!!! Then about a year after my horrible situation at that office, I started looking for more reviews and LO AND BEHOLD there are several people out there who aware of this. The difference between reviews written by real patients are so obvious. And when Dr. Zedek writes his own reviews, he says the same things about himself. He just changes the wording. The Dr.s at this office will invariably prescribe medications which the pharmaceutical companies pay them to PUSH. Especially Abilify and Fanapt. I was prescribed the Anti-Psychotic for Depression and suffered terrible side effects, only to find out that these are medications which Dr.s Zedek and Somers are PAID to promote. All I needed was a refill on my regular medications which I've been taking successfully for several years. Instead what I got was a drug which almost landed me in the Hospital. Furthermore I arrived at the Rx and discovered that I'd only been prescribed a four day supply, which meant that I'd be returning the next week to PAY for another appointment. DR. ZEDEK DEFINITELY WRITES HIS OWN REVIEWS!! This is now confirmed by the many other patients who have noticed this as I have...Where theres smoke, theres fire. DO NOT LET YOUR LOVED ONES BE ABUSED BY MONEY-HUNGRY, ETHICLESS SO CALLED DR.S!!!!!

Please don't come to Dr. Zedek if you would like any knowledgeable help or therapy. If, however, you would like to witness him screaming at the top of his lungs at his staff in front of you, he is sure to oblige. What a joke! He will, however, be happy to prescribe psychiatric medication for you. If drug therapy is all you are looking for, he's your man. Look at most of these positive reviews - he must be creating accounts to boost his ratings...just plain weird.
Just wanted to let everyone know that Dr Zedek is a very good Dr. He really does care about everyone. If you go to his office and see how the staff treat people you would be amazed, and the same goes for him. They are great people and they treat everyone like family. You have a name not a number there. They truely care about us. Thank you.
