Reviews

"Dr. Steve as well as the rest of his team at BDH are amazing. From my initial phone call in which I spoke with the receptionist, Michelle, who was just Great, she made me feel very comfortable as she took the time to answer all of my questions/concerns during a stressful time in my Life as I was trying to find a new PCP with the Pandemic going on. She helped me to book my new Patient consult with Dr. Steve. I was able to secure an appointment within 10 days. ( Not bad considering most of the time it takes months to get a New Patient Appt.) My appointment went Better than I could have ever imagined. I have a bit of a complex case including recently new diagnosis of T2D. Dr. Steve was nothing short of Amazing. His Attentiveness to all the details of "ME" from all of my health care history through my current conditions. He definitely made me feel better going forward knowing that I am no longer just a number mixed in with thousands of others, Direct Care with Dr. Steve is the Only way to go in Today's busy World. I am now Excited for what the future holds for me in that I now have a PCP 24/7 ..365 days a year along with Healthcare Team behind him who has my Healthcare Goals as their Top Priority..to be the healthiest, Happy version of Me!! I will recommend him to all of my Family and Friends!!"

"I don’t have a single negative thing to say about Dr. Zivich and his staff at BDH! Every visit has exceeded expectations in regards to friendliness, efficiency, and addressing the reason for my visit. Finding a PCP who genuinely cares about your health and makes you feel like you are more than just a number/appointment is HARD, and I couldn’t recommend BDH enough for their incredible staff and services. I have gone in for: rapid Covid testing, bloodwork, medication changes, physical ailments, and supplementation help. My boyfriend won some free Botox and spoke very highly of the appointment, which was scheduled promptly. That’s another thing- scheduling is so easy. You don’t have to wait weeks for your appointment which happens a lot with PCPs through MassGen/Brigham and other surrounding public healthcare providers. He is also now offering DEXA scans at a separate location, which is a valuable tool for weight loss patients and fitness enthusiasts, and DEXAs available in the New England area are few and far between. Thank you for everything you’ve done, Dr. Steve!"
