Dr. Zlotta epitomizes what every medical practitioner should be like. His communication of information is clear, deliberate, focussed and patient-centred. He will also answer his own emails from anywhere in the world that he may be and when he gives his word, it is golden. He is respectful of the patient's time even though he is typically very busy. It has been a privilege to have been his patient for 2 years.

My husband was diagnosed with Bladder Cancer late last year and we were not getting clear picture of his diagnosis from the Doctor at the time. We count our blessings each day that we got in touch with Dr. Zlotta , he answered our email right away and his staff got us instantly and he put our mind at ease. It is so hard to find a doctor that treats patient with kindness and compassion. He worked with us patiently, answered our questions, options and fears, his team helped us along which is so important. Every step of the journey we feel Dr. Zlotta and team supporting us.

I was diagnosed with bladder cancer in 2013 and Dr. Zlotta has been in my corner ever since. His extensive knowledge and expertise together with his dedicated team have been successful with their treatment and am now cancer free. I am being monitored on a regular basis. As a 91 year young retired dentist with 54 years of dedicated service to my patients, feel qualified to rate Dr Zlotta`s approach to his patients. It is obvious that he is an outstanding physician, surgeon and oncologist-but-his sincere empathy, his ability to make you feel at ease, his keen interest in you as if you were his only patient is the icing on the cake. Dr. Zlotta always has time to answer your questions in a way that you understand. As you leave his office and see his sincere and warm smile on his face, you know that you are in good hands. The above description is based on my personal experience…. I am truly one lucky man to be under your care…. ----- THANK YOU ----- Dr. David Kaplansky
