Dawn is fantastic. She listens, asks questions, explores different treatment options, and is genuinely concerned about finding a plan that works.
This was my first visit with Dawn, she was very personable and seemed concerned about my issues. She listened and did not appear rushed. I felt good about the appointment.
She is the best!
She made me feel very welcome and understood my health concerns with empathy and options.
I was very pleased with my visit to Dr. Dawn Hollembeak at Zest Family Practice. She was informative, smart and pleasant to talk to with. She answered all of my questions and was very knowledgeable about putting together a series of tests for me. I will definitely be a long-term patient. :)
Dawn is great! Very attentive and excellent care ! I highly recommend friends and family to see Dawn, and Zest Family Practice.
never been to a doctors visits like this, asks many questions about my concerns, everything that I had in mind, addressed all of my questions, gave many answers as well as some reading material to make my own judgements.This was my first visit and will never go somewhere else :)
Very friendly, very thorough! She was great!
Fantastic first visit! Dawn listens and helps you find solutions. The location is upscale, urban, and minimalistic. Doesn't feel like a dr's office. Very relaxing. The staff are friendly and there's even a coffeepot if you have to wait more than a couple of minutes! Loved it!
This is by far one of the best Dr. Offices I have been to. It is very clean, and well maintained. The Dr I saw was very kind, cared and addressed all of my concerns. I did not have to wait long for them to send my referrals. My medications were ready at my pharmacy. They do above and beyond.
Great as always. Couldn't have a better or more caring doctor on my side
Dawn is wonderful
She was so great! Very thorough and compassionate. I've never had a doctor take such good care of me.
She's very understanding and supportive. Very human and kind. Highly recommended ??
I have never felt so at home while having my annual well woman exam. Dawn spent alot of time speaking to me about my health, as well as getting to know me on a personal level. She even shared her background with me & we found out how small the world is as we shared some things in common. Dawn actually listened to my concerns & instead of giving me tons of medications for each individual symptom like my previous doctors, she recognized right away that I am not necessarily ill, but instead may have an hormonal imbalance. She even educated me on different pharmacies and websites to make sure I'm getting the best rate on my prescription cost. I will continue to see Dawn in the future for all of my sick & check up needs. She made me feel like we were old friends, but she remained very professional the whole way through.
Amazing personal service. I'm so happy I finally found a practice that listens and cares. Dawn and her staff are wonderful
Just an excellent visit all around!
Really liked how down to earth but professional she is. I felt really comfortable talking to her about all my medical concerns without feeling any judgement and really feeling heard and understood. Feel like she cares about really solving any medical concerns over just treating symptoms!
Dawn was wonderful! I've had trouble finding a practitioner I trust who I feel like really cares about her patients, and Dawn was perfect! Very warm and professional - I felt totally relaxed and comfortable sharing my health concerns with her on my very first visit.
Staff is great, Dawn is great. I always get in quickly and Dawn takes as much time as needed.
I can only be as honest as possible... Heather, Renae and Dawn Hallembeak FNP were amazing. I was seen right away, probably waited 4 minutes tops! Renae was very welcoming and polite! I just can't describe how awesome Dawn is!! She's friendly, knowledgeable, and easy to talk to. I really enjoyed my visit. I'm definitely in the right hands! Thanks ladies!!
She was very personable and friendly. I would highly recommend this place for your annual visit. Super easy to sign up online.
Informative and extremely comfortable. I will surely recommend her and your facility.
She was very personable and made me very at ease taking about sensitive subjects.
I am glad I started coming to Zest, Dawn has help me and I love that I am able to get appt online get to office and the team is able to get me in and take care of me in a timely manner. Thank you to all the Zest Team
I was really happy with the appointment. Dawn listened to me and was very knowledgable and personable. She seems to understand that a patient is also a person, which many doctors seem to forget.
Review is more for Zest family practice than FNP Hollembeak. Clinic is focused on pushing low-T treatment, so many tests in physical were performed that were not covered by insurance. Additionally, billing staff did not no how to read my insurance, and I was charged 80%, as opposed to 20%. Correction was made, but I still received a bill later for the difference that I did not understand. FNP Hollembeak was great, very personable...but Zest overall was terrible. I will not return.
Dawn and the office staff at Zest Family Practice were great from start to finish. Prompt check-in, professional and friendly throughout my appointment. Even when I was asking a hundred questions about my insurance coverage and their processes, they were patient and helpful. I highly recommend Dawn and the folks at Zest.
Dawn the Nurse Practitioner was great! Got in on time and very professional and good bedside manner.
