Family Doctor | Novi MI

Dr. Robert Zaid, DO is a Family Doctor in Novi, Michigan who has been practicing evidence based medicine since 2008. He is a part of PrimeCare of Novi and strives to help bring a version of medicine to the area that utilizes the right technology and maintains excellent quality of care.

In 2013, he helped PrimeCare of Novi open up an Urgent Care adjacent to their office to help their patients and members of the community.

Dr. Zaid is an active proponent of building communities and making families stronger and works hard to reinforce this in his exam rooms. Outside of medicine he hopes to be inspirational and is interested in doing things that better his community.

Dr. Zaid is a physician who will see his patients in the hospital and chooses to go to Ascension Providence Park Hospital in Novi.  His group is one of the last groups to care for their patients both socially and medically in the hospital.


Robert Zaid is Family Medicine Doctor at PrimeCare of Novi and will see his patient in both the office and at the hospital.

Dr. Zaid is a graduate of the University of Michigan and the Michigan State University Medical School. He finished his residency at Genesys Regional Medical Center in Grand Blanc and is board certified in family medicine.

Though trained to care for pediatrics, adults, geriatrics and sports medicine, he has taken interest in many areas including childhood asthma, dermatology, diabetes and osteopathic manipulation. He grew up in Walled Lake and is very enthusiastic to start to give back to his community.

He is an avid golfer and writer and believes that the key to a healthy lifestyle involves great communication between physician and patient coupled with good preventative medicine. Good decisions can be made only when there is cooperation between family and physician.

He also believes that the Family Doctor is the quarterback in the health care team and needs to make sure that the patient is informed and making the best decisions. With that responsibility is deciding which specialist or treatment makes the most sense for each situation.

He also feels that it is important to see his patients when they are admitted to the hospital so that he can provide the best continuity of care.

Prevention is the key to maintaining good health and at PrimeCare of Novi, Dr. Zaid and the other Novi Family Doctors use evidence based medicine to make the best decisions. We have an electronic medical record which allows us to send information to other offices in Novi or anywhere in the country within seconds.

Both Dr. Zaid and Dr. Shively preach consistency and you can be assured that they are both on the same page when it comes to your healthcare.

Dr. Zaid has recently published articles on Osteoporosis, Asthma and Electronic Medical records.  Make an appointment with Dr. Zaid because he can’t wait to meet you!
