Very, Very pleased! Being new to the Austin area, it's been challenging to find all new providers. After a co-worker raved about Zest, I knew I had to check it out for myself. It was just as my co-worker, and otherreviewers said it was. AMAZING! I saw Tara McDonald. She was very kind and knowledgeable. She answered all of my questions, and then some. I am happy to say that I have found my new PCP.

Listened, was personable, shared antidotes that let me know she understood my concerns although she hadn’t experienced what I was experiencing and was easy to talk to.
