*Zach is always on time. He listens intently to me and I never feel rushed. I feel I get info explained well to me. He is very compassionate and I don't feel bad about having to take pain meds for my back.

I appreciate the time - never felt rushed & was able to ask questions & address concerns.

PA Zack is condescending and more concerned about controlling the conversation than listening to me. When I have a different thought or opinion, he gets up and walks out the door. Visit over. He's done this several times. He is very rude.

Very polite and knowledgeable.

The provider that took care of me for years is no longer here. *Zach has stepped in very nicely and I feel he really cares about me and my wellbeing. I am very comfortable with him and I did not expect to be.

Zack was professional to a fault. I never felt like he listened to me or cared about me as a patient I felt like he was just going through the motions.

He seems to talk down to me because I need pain meds. Makes me feel that he doesn't think I should take them. Accused me of taking something that I DID NOT take, and admonished me very rudely. I am changing providers.

He wasn't listening to the pain that I was experiencing.

Apr 2, 2022
The PA was not listening to me. Refused to refer me to to. Surgeon and refused to offer and remedy for my chronic pain. He was rather snappy and rude to me.! Never will see him again.

My son had died recently and Dr Zach showed great compassion

Extremely pleased *Mr. Njoroge is a very thorough and pleasant medical provider - a credit to your organization.

After the first visit I was upset that I could no longer see my original doctor & I didn't care for this provider but after the next few visits, I got along with him much better & realize Dr. H_____ is very busy & my visits were just Rx visits.

This is only the 2nd time I have seen *Zack. I was impressed with how he remembered my first visit. Sometimes the adjustment from seeing the doctor you've seen for years to a new person can be difficult. Not so in this case.

Love my physician

I have seen him 4-5 times, including when he was in Meridian. He does not recognize me and denies he has ever seen me. I miss *Dr. Wilding.

It was just a follow up for an injection in my back

Fine.

I really like Zak. We have a good rapport with each other

During this short first visit, Zach spent most of the time looking at my records which he seemed unfamiliar with. He is extending my time between patch changes from 48 to 72 hours (after nearly 12 years and five providers at this practice) but gave me no plan or ideas how to do that. He was not interested in my current health challenges or anything other than this increase. I had to rely on my GP to provide me with a plan to accomplish this change in three months.Zach said I could look for another pain clinic if I didn't agree to this change. St. Al's has been my pain provider for over 10 years. I don't want to change. I want competent, compassionate care for chronic pain.

Nov 26, 2021
Zero empathy and cares less about severe chronic pain. His attitude is tough luck go to the ER if you don't like my pain control procedures.

I feel very fortunate to be a patient in this clinic. We discussed the possibility of me staying several months in a different part of the State with family. Hopefully I can continue with this clinic as I'm sure I'll be back in Nampa.

This was a new doctor, very nice & listened.

After our usual discussion about my overall well being I asked the provider to give me a prescription for constipation due to the morphine tablets he had been prescribing for me for some time. I had been purchasing an over the counter product for quite some time and had recently been qualified for another means of service that I Believed would furnish me with a suitable product for relief of my Opioid based constipation at no charge to me. I was pleased with this possibility and took the measure of placing a phone call to my providers pharmacy to see what products they would recommend and also would be covered by my insurance. I was given the names of two products that would provide relief and also be covered by them. This was good news as the over the counter product I had been using is quite a monthly expense to me. On my upcoming visit to Mr. Njoroge I shared with him my research and asked him to give me a prescription for the suggested medication. He said he didn't do that and forcefully refused to give me a prescription. I questioned his refusal to which he continued to tell me he didn't and wouldn't give me the prescription I sought. I left his office frustrated and perturbed after telling him I intended to follow up with my request. I then shared the Information with my Doctor and he then placed a prescription for me. I am using that prescription now and It is working well, and at no expense to me. I have not had a congenial relationship with staff but I wish to place no blame as I am sure I have played a part in that. I just choose to write it off to the nature of the services they perform. To that end I would also like to add that my relationship with the rest of the Saint Alphonsus medical organization has been nothing short of exemplary as the support and care has been a bright spot in my aging times.
