Dr Zinser readily and willingly discussed my concerns regarding with some of the possible long term side effects some of the meds that I need to take on a daily basis. He took time to discuss the chemical functional reactions and parameters that were the key elements of the medication. I was impressed with the degree of details that he was willing to take time to thoroughly explain. In closing, he asked for my confirmation that I understood his input and explanations. His presence and care were very professional as well as personal.

Dr. Zinser is the best doctor my family has ever seen! He truly takes his time to make sure we understand everything and does NOT MAKE US FEEL RUSHED. I highly recommend him and hope Legacy treats him well and does all they can to keep him on staff! This has not always been the case at Legacy.

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!
