I moved to AZ last year and hadn't found a primary care physician, until I found Dr. Zuzak. She took time to talk with me, she understood my concerns, and she didn't make me feel rushed. I highly recommend Dr. Zuzak.

Dr. Zuzak was attentive, friendly, and professional. She listened to our questions and concerns and responded accordingly. I was impressed with how quickly she completed our paperwork and prescriptions. The wait time was around 40 min fromour scheduled time, but that included weight, BP, etc. It was not too bad, and she’s worth the wait. The office staff were friendly and professional too. We felt very comfortable.

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 listenedto 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.

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, andupdated 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.

She seemed really interested in helping me figure out why I was havingissues 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!

Dr Zuzak is professional, kind, sincere, and really listens. She asks good questions, is never condescending nor displays any type of superior attitude.

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 lovedmost 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. Iwas 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'vebeen 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.

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.
