I originally was scheduled for later in the week but my issues had got so bad I asked if it were possible to get in sooner. The staff worked with me and got me in several days in advance, and we're very polite and friendly the whole time. It is sincerely appreciated as I suffer with extreme anxiety

Dr. Zinser is always easy to talk to and understand. He speaks to myself and my husband as human beings and doesn't add alot of "doctor jargon " that we wouldn't understand. We both appreciate this VERY much. Dr. Z has a great bedside manner with empathy and respect. I can't imagine having a better ally on my care team!

I have tremendous faith in Dr. Zinser! He is the best family care provider that I have ever been privileged to have. I am troubled that I can no longer receive phlebotomy services at this clinic. I must now wait a couple days, delaying results, as well as spend time (and fuel) on the road to get to where this service can be provided. While I recognize you are subject to Covid mandates, let it be known that I would gladly receive phlebotomy services from an unvaccinated (Covid) professional. It would be of no concern to me at all.

Dr Zinser is very good at answering my questions and keeping me on track. Explains things in very understandable terms. I would feel comfortable recommending him if asked. But I usually shy away from getting too involved in others important decisions as what's good for me may not be the same for them.

I found Dr. Zinser to have incredible focused attention to my concerns and stressors. Best of all he exudes compassion and humanism I seldom see in individuals as a whole. My son has serious extreme mental behavioral difficulties; would love to find someone in the field with Dr. Zinser's capabilities. As to my personal medical situation he has set me up for testing on my heart as well as for my long ongoing undetermined leg issues. I am much relieved no matter what the outcomes might be. I actually left his office elated! Gals were all more than accomodating and friendly as well. Great day considering I entered quite concerned about chest tension on left!

While I indicated that I did not get an appointment as soon as I thought I needed one, clinic staff directed me to urgent care where I received care I needed until my appointment with my provider. Dr. Zinser is always very patient, attentive, and provides me with detailed, scientific, evidence based information from which to help in making decisions. I receive excellent care from him and have complete trust in him as my primary care physician.

There was no immediate answer to my reason for visiting yesterday but Dr. Zinser ordered tests and X-ray for me. Those are done and he has already communicated with me today about the tests and the next steps. Extremely good care. After I became his patient, my wife changed to his care also. I chose Dr. Zinser on the recommendation of friends.

The communication was not good at all. No one called regarding my test results, I had to send messages and call. Come to find out (after I called) that I wasn't supposed to take antibiotics while on another medication. Also there were some "flags" on my test results that no one has explained to me but was able to get a follow up appt after I called again inquiring about a message that was sent to my primary doctor 2 days prior.
