Advice & Tips: Dr. Z. is a moron and I wouldn't recommend him to anyone. The only reason that I see him is to help keep up with my medications. Other than that, I don't tell him anything that he doesn't need to know and I only tell him what medications I take and why I take them and tell him and let him decide if they need to be upped or downed. Other than that, I do not have anything to do with him, period.
