Excellent knowledge, pro-active approach, and thorough explanation of options. Took care of an issue I had that another doctor said "couldn't be done." I was in for evaluation and surprisingly Dr. Zook just dealt with it immediately and problem solved in under 30 minutes total.

Dr. Zook is very smart and runs a clean, professional practice. Her front office staff is to-the-point and easy to work with and the office is very modern. I saw Dr. Zook for hormonal acne and her recommendation helped more thananything I've ever used! During our appointment, we didn't talk too much about my skin - she looked at it and had her answer on what to prescribe right away. I would have liked a little more insight into her thought process, but acne can be emotional, so I took her recommendations right away. Luckily, it worked! I know if I'd have asked for more info, she would have told me. Highly recommend and love to support a woman running her own practice.

Amazing, she listened to everything I told her and helped me to finally get a diagnosis on something when other doctors were unwilling to help. I saw her for something specific but it was a symptom of the bigger issue whichshe was the first to identify. I can't be more grateful for finding Dr. Zook.
