Concise, positive, addressed my concerns and very comfortable to speak with regarding my health. She and the office is proactive about wellness and prevention of future chronic illnesses which helps to support my goals. Lastly, it was veryeasy to make a ‘new patient’ appointment without waiting weeks to be seen- only 3 business days! Excited to have switched!

So glad I found Dr. Zuzak! She always answers all my questions thoroughly (and even brings up stuff I didn't think to ask or forgot that I wanted to ask her about!) Overall very friendly and professional doctor, staff, and environment.Even when the waiting room is full the wait time isn't long. Also, there's a blood lab on site, so I don't have to go elsewhere for blood work.

Annoyed about having to change professionals and then have to share primary health care provider information with yet another specialist in order to continue getting prescriptions for regular medications I have been taking for three years.

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.
