Verified Patient Reviews
Dr. Zuzak was amazing, I'm so happy my mom recommended her to me! I felt so much relief during my visit with her- she really took her time to listen to me and think of the best plan to take to help with my medical problems. I wish I would have found her sooner!
As always I am So happy with my visit to Living Well. Dr. Zuzak is so sweet and takes whatever time is needed to answer all my questions. She is not willing to let me walk out of her office unless I am 100% happy with my treatment plan and confident in the route we are going. Wait time wasn't bad at all, the rest of the staff is a delight and so much fun to talk to. Keep up the amazing work!
Dr. Kathryn and her colleagues are beyond great. The doctors are extremely patient and listen to you. I would highly recommend both the doctors at this office. And phlebotomist was quick and efficient. Everyone is very friendly. I only wish I would have found this office sooner.
As a new patient from out of town, I was very pleased with Dr. Donesa-Zuzak. I work extensively in the Phoenix area and she will be my go-to doctor when I am in the area.
She was wonderful! She really listened to me as I told her about the symptoms I was having and seemed to really care about helping me feel better. I finally found a primary care physician!
Being a large guy I received "the usual talk" about weight, diabetes, eating properly,etc. However, Dr. Zuzak not only spoke positively. She showed and explained test results to me, again in a positive, extremely friendly manner. She listened to me. She heard me. She answered my questions with thoughtful, intelligent answers. We even laughed! Come to think of it I didn't leave the office depressed, mad, or angry! Wow! That's new for me! I have a new PCP.
Dr. Zuzak is AMAZING!!!! She takes time and listens. She cares about her patients. I’ve seen many doctors over the years and she’s the absolute best!!!
I have never been so excited to follow up with a Dr. Dr. Zuzak is a gem! Her staff is great from the front office to the assistance everyone was kind. Though my wait time was long the staff communicate, and updated me regularly which was fantastic. I had changed my PC Dr. To her so my 1st appointment took some time. Never once did I feel rushed or that I was an inconvenience. She is so full of love and knowledge I left feeling prepared to conquer my current health ailments and feel I have a great support system within her to do it. Thank you Dr. Zuzak for being so warm.
Dr. Zuzak is great...a professional who listens and explanes what needs to be conveyed. She has a great bedside manner, I'm glad to have found her.
Love it. Easy communication, friendly staff and smooth.
The doctor was sweet kind and very attentive. I definitely recommend her. The wait time was a little longer then I would love but it was worth it. She seemed really interested in helping me figure out why I was having issues not just fixing the problem. She also is great with kids and did a great physical for my step-daughter. They drew my blood in the clinic. Great visit!
Overall great experience for my 2nd visit
Office staff was pleasant. No issues with Check-in or checkout. I received my lab results very quickly. Very pleased with my visit overall.
She was very attentive, I feel confident having her as my Doctor.
First visit went very well. Everyone was very nice and friendly. Dr. Zuzak took her time and answered all of my questions. Very impressed with the office!
The doctor was extremely professional and seemed knowledgable. I like that she spent time with me and listened to my concerns. She was able to come up with alternative solutions, and I am satisfied with the visit. I would recommend her.
She is very attentive and oonerning when describing the health issue. All women in this office. I like that!
She was very knowledgeable and will be going again
Great bedside manner and was able to properly diagnose my illness due to her persistence
This was my first appointment and I really liked her. She took her time to get to know about my health issues and offered a few suggestions that no one had ever offered before. I didn't feel rushed at all, and I just really appreciate that she listened intently without judgement...a welcome changed from experiences I have had with other doctors in the past. I walked away feeling like I have found the awesome, caring, understanding doctor that I have been looking for!
Dr. Donesa-Zuzak is the most amazing physician. I always leave with great information and a new perspective on my own health. She really takes care to get to know you and is beyond through with your care. He front office staff is so friendly and nice each time you go in!
Very Good! She listened to my need. She has been our doctor since 2010.
Very friendly and welcoming office! Dr Donesa-Zuzak was very thorough and informative during our newborn exam. She was patient and answered all of our questions.
Dr Zuzak is professional, kind, sincere, and really listens. She asks good questions, is never condescending nor displays any type of superior attitude. She is truly interested in my thoughts on treatments and tests, which is not the approach I've experienced with other physicians. She is the best! I also really like her office staff.
I first met Dr. Donesa Zuzak at the Chandler Family Health Center. I was impressed with her thoroughness, knowledge, and patient interaction. She was everything I was looking for in a PCP - attentive, intelligent, and professional. What I loved most about her practice was that she always had handy visuals and information sheets to explain treatments and plans to her patients. As a visual person who is very detail-oriented, I appreciated her willingness to explain medical issues to me with handouts that I could take home. When I learned that she had left Chandler Family and started her own practice, I quickly made sure to establish care at her clinic. I was pleasantly surprised to learn that she remembered me and establishing care as a new patient in her clinic felt like it was seamless. I highly recommend Dr. Donesa Zuzak to anyone looking for a personal touch to their doctor's visits!
First visit went well. Wait time was a lot longer than I anticipated. I arrived on time and even had my paperwork already filled out and it took at least thirty minutes before MA began routine of lbs and bp. I was very pleased with my doctor visit though. Dr. Donesa-Zuzak was very knowledgeable and friendly. I am happy this will be my new office for primary care. The office even has labs onsite which is nice. Hopefully my next appointment will run on time but it was worth the wait.
I've gone without a PCP for years, because I was unable to find a quality doctor with a pleasant and professional office staff. I went to see Dr. Doesa-Zuzak about an on-going issue, and she was both thorough and caring. I've been back since the first visit, and she was even more attentive the second time! Her office staff is very sweet and professional. The woman from Sonora Qwest who works in the doctor's office is equally amazing! It is a little bit of a wait to see the doctor, but her personalized care is more than worth it. I highly recommend seeing Dr. Donesa-Zuzak if you want a top-notch doctor.
Loved Dr. DONESA-ZUzak's bedside manor. Very personable and very professional at the same time. She offered tangible, usable advice to solve my issue. She is my new PCP because of this first impressive visit. My one issue was the wait. It took over 45 min from my appointment time to see Dr. Donesa-Zuzsk.
She is awesome! When she recommends an aproach to dealing with what ever it is you are seeing her for, she doesn't just tell you she also gives you the information through example. Printed and written info options to consider and implement.
I enjoy talking to Dr. Zuzak. She is knowledgeable and attentive to my needs and problems. Her suggestions make sense and are realistic. The only downside is the wait time. I waited 45 minutes to see her.
Absolutely love my MD. She's amazing, attentive, patient and cares for my needs.
What a wonderful Dr! She was great!
The 2 doctors in this office,as well as the staff, are exceptional in every way. I have never experienced a better more efficient office in my 33 years in the valley!
I felt so at ease with Dr. Zuzak. She has such a caring bedside manner. She really listened to me regarding my complicated past medical history and had fresh insight on additional options with preventative measures to staying healthy. She is a very competent Doctor. Additionally, she enabled me to combine different areas of my healthcare all into one practice. I feel so relieved that I have found a new PCP in AZ.
She was very concerned about my medical needs, suggested and prescribed an immediate plan for relief of pain.
Dr. Zuzak is a great listener and takes time to explain your medical health.
She is terrific. I was beginning to think I'd never find a personable, professional Chandler physician. I'm so glad I kept hunting!
She was super busy today. When she came into the exam room, she acted like I was the only patient she had. Her attention to my issues were refreshing. She didn’t 45 minutes with me. She did not push pills on me. In fact she told me I should stop one medication. Her approach to my heath was refreshing. By the time we finished the appointment, I did not need to think about rather I wanted her as my new Primary Doctor. I asked for the medical records released form, signed it and left completely confident in my new doctor!
My actual visit with Dr. Zuzak was great! She was very warm, proactive and honest. Didn't try to push pills on me to solve my issues, no judgment, but talked over options with me. I would definitely recommend her.
She was so nice and explained everything! As well as found a solution for me
Dr donesa-Zuzak was patient and ingadged durning my appointment. She was knowledgeable and I felt she provided good information in working towards my overall wellness. I look forward to my follow up appointment.
She took all the time I needed for several issues. She is one of the most caring doctors I have ever met.
I had to wait a little longer than usual, but I’d rather wait a little longer for a good doctor, that will take time to take care of you rather than rush through the appointment just to get to the next appointment.
As a new patient I was impressed on thoroughness of interview and my medical history. I an confident that doctor Zuzak will provide excellent care you me.
I felt that she listened to my concerns and addressed them thoroughly. I will go back to her for sure!
Best ever appointment--best ever Doctor--all questions answered and medications prescribed to my satisfaction-going back in two months.
Loved it! She answered all our questions promptly and professionally. My whole family of four went for the visit and she took the time to listen to all of our concerns without us feeling rushed.
My experience with the doctor was great, the wait however was very frustrating. My appointment was 1145 and I didn’t leave until 1pm, and my actually appointment time was about 30 minutes. The only reason why I would go back is the doctor herself, she was very attentive and listened to all of my concerns.
Dr. Zuzak was INCREDIBLE. Seriously. She actually cares about what you have to say and reacts accordingly. I get the sense that she wants you to be part of decisions regarding your body, and wants her patients to leave feeling confident that every question has been thoroughly answered. She is definitely my favorite doctor, and I'm so happy to have found her!
Dr. Zuzak is very sweet, personable and listens to all your concerns. My first visit with her was great! I immediately felt comfortable with discussing my medical history with her. She has a great Aura. The facility and nurses also have a pleasant demeanor and there is hardly any wait time. You're in and out in no time.
Dr. Donesa-Zuzak was very nice and made sure to help me with my illness in the best way she could.
She was awesome. Took really good care of me and compassionate
This was my first appointment. I had previously read great reviews and was hopefully they were accurate. I'm very happy to say, she is awesome and I can see why her patients love her!
I am so glad I chose Dr. Zuzak. My husband and I both saw her on seperate occasions and she was very thorough, receptive and helpful. I personally love her willingness to think outside the box and explore non-traditional approaches as well. Really great for treating the whole person, not just one single ailment- though I am sure she would be great at that too :)
Great visit, very caring, considerate and welcoming. Easy to talk to and understanding. I was in and out of the office in no time.
Sweet lady!!!!! But a little obsessed with dietary issues
Very professional and personal. Easy to talk to.
she is a good listener and treated me respect and as an equal in my healthcare
to explain what i needed to do
I've been to 7-8 different doctors in the last two year. This is the first doctor who actually took time with me and showed actual interest to improve my health. The search for a great doctor is over!
I love Miss Zuzak. She was a big help tp me. I can't wait to see her again.
She is a amazing dr. I'm glad I found a dr in Arizona I like.
Dr. Zuzak is the most kindest and compassionate doctor I have ever worked with. She listened to everything I had to say and made me feel completely comfortable in her office. I would highly recommend her to anyone. She is seriously the best!
