We were super nervous about the visit but his assistant was very warm friendly, Dr Zinser walked in and warmly greeted us, we felt very at ease, he explained all our questions in the manner we could understand, it's hard sometimes when your nervous and don't comprehend everything that is said, but not with Dr. Zinser. We're very fortunate to be his patients.

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.

Provider was very nice and listened but the specimen collection could have been a self swab and was unnecessary for the Provider to do with the method he did (didn't use a speculum). Self swab should be an option given to ALL female patients when feasible.

Dr.Z may run late but that is because he is taking time to listen and treat all of your needs. I never feel rushed no matter how many things I bring up. Thank you for always listing to my needs and explaining everything clearly. I always feel that all my options for treatment have been clearly explained to me so I can make the best decision for my care and also know my doctor agrees with the plan we made together! My MA is always kind and listens, calls are returned the same day and paperwork is never lost or not done in a timely manner. They are an amazing team!

Dr.Zinser and his nurse Cindy are by far the best medical providers I have ever seen. They take their time to explain what I need to know. I feel they truly care about me as a person. Whereas most physicians I've been to just treat me as a number and want to rush through he appointment , get me out of their hair . I'll be moving soon to another state and I worry that whoever becomes my physician won't come close to Dr. Zinser and Cindy. So you can see how much I appreciate these two providers.

Dr. Zinser is my wife's and my GP currently and for the past several years. In both of our opinions, Dr. Z is the best GP we have had during our lifetimes, no exaggeration. He listens intently and provides clear information and guidance on options available. In this particular visit, and as an acknowledgement to the current COVID epidemic, he listed future testing options in terms of; lowest risk, highest safety, and lowest cost - I greatly appreciated that advise.

My experience was good but many of my friends and colleagues have specific needs and concerns- say they have young children or are elders with specific issues that a different physician would be the best match. Dr. Zinser is good for ME but not the best fit for everybody- nobody is.

It seems "holistic" healthcare is no more. Not to pick on my provider, but I always feel limited to just focus on one maybe two issues, when I have many more concerns. It also seems like if one doesn't fall into a particular category of expected symptoms & results, or follow a course of the majority, that the concern is just ignored. "If its not easy, don't bother" is the feeling I get from healthcare today. No specificity, which is what I really want from my primary care provider.
