Dr Z is always attentive & offers options for treatment of my issues so I have a say in my care.

  Jul 14, 2023
Dr. Z is definately the best dr there but he has too many patients. When I make an appt its always several days out and they try to get me to see someone else.

  Jul 13, 2023
Would recommend but I heard he was not accepting new patients.

Firwood does a great job. I feel comfortable, and safe in the office. I see things running smoothly when I come in for visits. The staff here does provide good general practices. These things are important so you can focus on your care, and it's appreciated. I have shared good and bad experiences here. Life Is like that, and I have found Legacy Firwood to provide the level of care that is necessary to continue healthy living. Thank you

All good

  May 25, 2023
I love Deryk Zinser! I'm fortunate to have him as mine and my families doctor!

  May 25, 2023
Dr Zinser is a great rural doc. His nurses and MA staff are also excellent and can often handle issues without taking Zinser's time. I do not like the management and director staff at Legacy. There is no one who advocates for patients.Higher up managers do more to support your great front line staff. The phone recordings are horrible. Make so a patient can get to a human easier. The humans at Firwood are excellent. Treat them like the treasures they are and get rid of the recordings on the phone.

  May 25, 2023
Was pleased with my visit.

  Mar 15, 2023
Closing Birthing Center in Gresham is not good, community or Legacy.

  Mar 15, 2023
Dr. Z and the Firwood clinic are competent and attentive. Dr. Z listens and responds with knowledge and efficiency. I have no concerns, though I still kind of felt like I was on an auto processing line being attended to going down the line - e.g. A patient with a number rather than necessarily a person. Still, I have no complaints and I will be thankful to continue having Dr. Z as my care provider for the time that I continue living in this area.

  Mar 10, 2023

Excellent experience, from the beginning including, scheduling, check in, nurses care and Doctor' visit. I felt the staff as a whole and specifically Dr. Zinser we professional, thorough, informative and made for a very positive new patient appointment.

I'm very pleased with Dr Zinser. I've never had a doctor as well prepared to treat me or as thorough. No one comes close to his ability to communicate and concern for his patient.

I was disappointed,, that because of my age,and have not had any blood tests done in at least 5years or more,non was done,nor did does doctors listen to my breathing or heart ,With the mask requirement,Makes it harder to understand what is being said. Doctor Zinser was very helpful and patient with my questions.

  Dec 13, 2022
Doc Z always takes time to give me really great answers to my questions. Gal who took my blood pressure listened to my concerns and changed things to make sure it didn't hurt.. Gal who took my blood was super good. I barely felt it and had only tiny bruis. Really appreciated great care I got.

  Dec 2, 2022
Dr Zinser identified the problem, documented, ordered chest x-rays, and asked for follow-up in a timely fashion so that I was able to more quickly get started on healing. He was pleasant, professional and I was positively impressed. I feel so grateful to have been seen when I was. I hope to get back to work soon.

  Dec 2, 2022
Dr. Zinser is clearly a knowledgeable and informed physician who listens intently and provides clear and relevant answers to questions and medical information that are not based on opinion but on scientific research. Dr. Zinser always explains what current research is showing and uses this to educate and inform me as his patient. Dr. Zinser never talks down to me or treats me like I would not understand his medical explanations but always takes the time to explain everything in a way that makes sense. I would highly recommend Dr. Zinser to anyone!

  Nov 30, 2022
This last experience was everything I want from my physician. Previous times I have felt like a statistic. The receptionists & clerks were far more personable than in the past as well.
