"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 he educated 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 is easy to find. Just amazing! 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 multiple times to answer questions regarding my physical health. 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!"
