During our first visit, I realized you didn't thoroughly read and understand my prior lab tests which I emailed you before that visit. This was most evident recently since my most recent ALT was high but was 3x higher a few months ago. You said I could get a PICC line but I only care about that in order to try IV antibiotics and now you're talking about getting other doctors involved and a referral process. It has been two months and the only reason I am better is because of my own testing. Whatsmore, I was expecting a glutathione and Vitamin C IV yesterday and I came to find out upon arrival I will not be getting an IV that day because of the glutathione being on back order and that the next time I come there I will get a vitamin IV. I came today for a blood draw for quest diagnostics tests, some of which cannot be performed because of special vials needed, and nutreval blood draw and find out I won't be getting IV vitamins and find out yesterday the IV vit C amount is much less than I could take orally. I could have only rented a vehicle for 1 day instead of 2 days if the nutreval test kit was sent to me as I could have done the urine portion at home. I drive 1.5 hours one way and through Boston crazy drivers when I should have been offered to pay the additional shipping. You said you'd send me some links to integrative medicine and conventional medicine resources but I never got them. You apparently didn't see the tests I had done such as urine mycotoxin or the other fungal tests.

My experience with Boston Direct Health, and more specifically Dr. Steven Zivich, has been tremendous. Dr. Zivich takes the time to listen to a patient and is responsive when a patient has a question. He uses the latest technology that best connects him to serve his clients. The organization is proactive in preventative treatments (immunization, flu shots, etc.). If diagnostics are required, he and is staff work with third party providers so tests are processed quickly and accurately.

I’m grateful for BDH & Dr. Zivich. This is unicorn care. This is how people hope they will be treated when we get sick or have questions but in my extensive experience as a patient, is exceedingly difficult to find.

I have known Dr. Zivich for nearly five years.He was my parents' primary care physician for about 2 years until both of my parents passed away. I still remember right after we met Dr. Zivich, I told him that my parents were from China and they did not like to over-treat their health problems and over-drug their bodies (like many Americans do). To my surprise, he was very understanding and did not favor further medication or treatment as a number of physicians do. He was always very patient, respectful and considerate.Now he has been the primary physician of a senior veteran who I have been caring for more than a year. He is as fine a doctor as we could ask for.He answers our questions and requests promptly. We can contact him no matter how late it is at night, if we have a potentially dangerous situation. Consulting him on the phone has saved us trips to hospitals and emergency rooms.He is also very knowledgeable about the medicines we are taking, especially their interactive and synergistic effects. He is the most informed doctor in this regard I have ever had the privilege to know.Scheduling appointments with him is never a problem; he can always manage to see us within a day or two. Such is virtually impossible to count on with most physicians in big hospitals and major clinics. We do not get nearly as much help from them as we get from him.I highly recommend Dr. Zivich as a primary care physician or family doctor. He is a wholly motivated and caring physician, fully representative of how all doctors should be.

Superb PCP, with expertise in musculoskeletal medicine. Provided a great consultation and expert management plan during my acute back injury. Genuinely caring - adjusted his schedule to accommodate a home-visit, and went the extra mile to ensure I had everything required for a quick recovery. Very impressed (& I speak as a physician myself).

I’m so thankful for everything Dr. Steve Zivich has done for me. He’s very personable and caring. It’s hard to find that in today’s medical field. He listens to your problems and how you truly feel inside and goes above and beyond to cater to your every need. I’ve had a rough year and without Dr. Zivich I’d be lost! Boston Direct Health has changed my life. Thank you so much!

I love Dr. Steve he’s THE BEST in Boston hands down! I’ve been working with him for a few months now and things have been great. He’s a super knowledgeable man that takes pride in a consultative approach with his patients upon your first visit. He takes time to understand who you are and what your health goals are, then works with you to formulate a health plan that’s going to be most beneficial for YOU! He understands that not every human is the same, so every patient must be treated with a health plan that’s efficient, affordable, customizable, and flexible for that patients health and life. So if you’re like me who was sick and tired of being pushed in and out of doctors offices, feeling like you are just another number and not a HUMAN needing primary care, make an appointment to see Dr. Steve ASAP!

I spent a while finding the right primary care doctor when I finally found Dr. Zivich. He’s incredibly personable, extremely receptive, and easy to discuss any medical issue with. Due to a move I unfortunately had to switch doctors, but after switching and having a lengthy wait for my new primary, Dr. Zivich was able to fit me in on short notice and completely work with my schedule.I would highly suggest anyone in the Boston area that is looking for a more personal, involved, and caring relationship for their primary care look into Dr. Zivich with Boston Direct Health. The care he provides is more than worth it.

I have been a patient of Dr. Steve’s for about 3 months. He has helped treat me for a variety of things including chronic emotional stress and anxiety, poor gut health, and even 2 orthopedic injuries. He spends a LOT of time on intake which is fantastic to not have to feel rushed in your doctor appointment, and he uses a full mind/body/nutritional approach so you truly feel listened to. I recently injured my shoulder and was able to call Dr. Steve the instant I hurt it, and he got my MRI approved expeditiously. Last month I injured my wrist and was able to see him that same day as well, no ER, no urgent care. I highly recommend Boston Direct Health and their monthly concierge medical program. He’s always there when you need him!

Giving it is how hard it is to find a good caring PCP I’m surprised there’s not more reviews. Dr. Zivach is always available for any important medical questions or concerns. He has helped me greatly with my physical and mental health in the last year. He put Together a healthy eating regiment and work out routine for me. I lost 40# last year. It gave me great awareness and eductated me on my health and lifestyle. I’ve never experienced the care and customer service like this ever in 35 years. He’s always available and truley a geniune man and Doctor. His office is right by Copley parking easy to find. Just amazing! Thank you. I’m surprised there are not more great reviews on here. I was Dr Zivachs patient at Fenway health for almost 2 years. I was so excited he was opening his new practice for many reasons. For one he has completely helped me with my mental and physical health. He went out of his way to write me an excersise plan and and great diet more of Healthy eating and awareness of my food intake.My restaurant closed at the end of June last year. I was Hospitilzed for a few days. Dr Zivach came out of his way to come see me at Saint Elizabeth’s. The staff and Doctors there were blown away. He is so caring and understanding and just wants the best for his patients. He always responds immediately via text or call. Ive never waited a long period of time for my medications. I would recommend him to anyone. Blessed to have him as my Dr.! Thanks Dr.Z!

I really like going to Dr Zivich because he's super knowledgeable and easy to talk to. I feel like he listens to what I'm saying to fully understand an issue, instead of just telling me what to do based on a list of symptoms. Thanks Dr Z!!

I liken this service to an AMEX platinum card...... yes, there is an upfront cost, but if you like cutting lines and expect exceptional service each and every time Boston Direct is a must.

Boston Direct Health and Dr. Steve Zivich offer the personalized care and service that I was looking for. Dr Zivich's approach to health and wellness means more than flu shots and care for minor injuries. His approach is to raise the level of care with a personalized relationship with his patients and offer options that are grounded in professionalism tailored to the needs and lifestyle on the individual. For me this meant being motivated by this kind of care and has led to changes in diet and in becoming more active. Being in my mid 50's means having not only a Primary Care Physician like Dr. Zivich, but his extended team of experts from Personality Training to Chiropractic care to Acupuncture to Massage.The choice of Boston Direct Health was a commitment on my part to my own health and wellness. I am happy to share that this decision has paid dividends in the level and quality of the care I receive but also in the overall improvement of my life.

Dr. Zivich is a talented, caring and thoughtful physician who is clearly motivated by a genuine drive to improve his patients’ lives. I’m very excited about his new practice, Boston Direct Health, which has established a ground-breaking model for what our healthcare system should be. He has made accessibility to his quality care even easier and is dedicated to being available to his patients to address any health concerns they may have. Unlike most physician practices, you won’t have to wait weeks to a month to see him. This is because his practice focuses on being available for same day or next day appointments, which is important because you can never predict when you’re going to get sick. Even if you don’t have an appointment, Dr. Zivich is still available to consult with you via phone, text, or email. I truly wish more physicians would take this patient-focused approach to healthcare. If you haven’t heard of Direct Primary Care before, I strongly recommend giving Boston Direct Health a call!

Dr Zivich is perhaps the most compassionate, thorough and efficient physician I have ever met. Every time I have a concern or question he takes the time to patiently explain things to me in detail and make sure that I am informed and reassured. He is knowledgeable and has natural a way of explaining complex scientific jargon to the Everyman (or Everywoman). I have never had a problem reaching him, and he always finds a way to make time for me.

Many practices boast about their individualized care services, but I have never seen anyone execute and deliver on their promises quite like Dr. Zivich. The class of service I've received since becoming a member has been unparalleled and I truly challenge others to find someone better - because I know it will be nearly impossible. Steve is incredibly responsive and always presents various therapeutic options for me to ensure I'm part of the decision process. I'll be a loyal member and patient to Boston Direct Health for many years to come and I highly recommend others to do the same!

As my husband’s PCP we found Dr Z to be kind, caring and compassionate. A good listener that tries to do the right thing for his patients. Never any problems and always available to answer and concerns or questions. We both highly recommend him without reservations.

Not helpful or caring. He came into the room already looking careless.. I had to go to the clinic that day because it was the only thing opened on the weekend. I came in because I had a lot of ear pain and couldn't hear and it felt very swollen. Thinking/knowing I had an ear infection, even the nurse that saw me before the doctor said I had an ear infection. He told me I DIDN'T have one and my ears were swollen because or q-tips. He looked at my ears and situation like it was nothing. He made me pay $35 for eye drops that were not helpful. 3 days after using the ear drops, my ears started to be in more pain than ever. I called the clinic he worked at and another doctor got me the CORRECT medication. I ended up going to my family doctor a couple days after again to make sure I was on the right medication. My doctor said I definitely had an ear infection and the ear drops only made it worst. She could tell by looking into my ear because the infection was still there.
