Dr Zinser was training a new MD. Not completely sure but I think it was in basic testing and Blood pressure etc and questions about my health to enter into the record. She did very well. Dr Zinser followed up with her present. It was a fun experience for all.
Always great with Dr.Zinser.
Dr. Zinser is very helpful, I would not go anywhere else
Attentive and professional Doctor.
Excellent care, as always with Dr. Zinser. Best I've ever had...
Dr Zinser is always prompt, friendly & willing to listen to my concerns, offering advice & possible avenues of diagnosing & treating existing & new symptoms. Always a pleasurable & reassuring experience.
Dr. Is very easy to talk to and comprehends the issues I'm having.
Dr. Zinser takes the time to really understand my concerns about health related issues. He doesn't just hurry through the appointment to get to the next one.
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 was nervous as my health profile is complex and lengthy. I felt heard and as though my health was a priority. I left feeling positive and informed and as though I will have great future care. Thank you!
Dr Zinser and all the staff I have interacted with have always been professional, friendly, helpful and courteous. I appreciate all the time and effort taken to resolve any medical issues, questions or concerns.
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.
After check-in, I was called in quickly; everyone was friendly and patient, even though they were quite busy that day.
Good as always
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.
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.
Never feel rushed and I can ask about anything regarding my health.
Treated my problem completely and eased my mind about my concerns.
Talked about multiple issues and he addressed them all.
Service has always been professional, personal and helpful. I have recommended this clinic and Dr Zinser to friends and relatives.
If i didn't like the doctor & staff I wouldn't be going there. Dr. Zinser easy to talk to & easy going.
Dr Zinser is thoughtful, respectful and thorough in his explanations.
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.
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!
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.
I was just coming off treatment (Paxlovid) for COVID-19. I was surprised & pleased that they were willing to see me/keep this appointment.
Dr. Zinser is wonderful. Takes his time, doesn't rush, empathetic and caring. I have recommended him to all my family.

I actually got taken back before my appointment. Everyone was professional and courteous.

I went to emergency at the hospital because of a auto accident. The doctors office called me the next morning to check on me.

My dr. has always been very patient with me and I trust his opinions and advice. Hope he's not going anywhere.
My last visit with Dr. Zinser - was more of a consultation - he referred me to specialist took care dr. Dr. Zinser is a good dr., not a game player, tells you the facts.
I'm really happy to have finally found a primary care physician who I trust and who is able to provide me with a lot of specific information in a short period of time.
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 has always been an excellent Doctor for me. He has very satisfactory and his advice is always on target.

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 embodies a true primary care Dr. Because of his expertise he keeps me out of the hospital. [patient information removed for privacy]. His medical assistant Cindy Is outstanding as well. She is missed.

This was my first visit to establish care with a new primary care physician. Fantastic doctor, great listener, extremely patient and well informed. I as very impressed with both the doctor and the office staff.
All good. Working on a 50 yr. Rx, to get off and trip is hard.
Very easy to talk to & question.
I really appreciate that Dr. Zinser was able to fit me in on short notice, instead of waiting to the next week when the next appointment was available. He showed compassion for my family situation and ensured I got pain relief as soon as possible.
I was examined and reassured about the concern I had and given follow up instructions. We also had time to discuss the letter from the health insurance company concerning the length of time I've been taking a prescription. His advice was reassuring. All good experiences.
Dr. Zinser & staff are always helpful & listens to me.

I have recommend Legacy Firwood and Dr. Zinser many times to friends and my family. My wife and several friends now use Dr. Zinser as their primary care giver.
Dr Zinser has to be the most patient doctor I've ever seen. No question is too dumb, nor too many! And he actually acts as though I have a brain!
