my only complaint is that I waited 45 minutes to see the doctor. I was in the exam room on time, but then waited 45 minutes. the appointment, which included an exam of my back and x-rays, took almost 2 hours. seemed excessive for the result of prescribed physical therapy.

She listened to my concerns, we decided on a plan for a cortisone injection to my knee so I could get back to cycling.
Sept. 30, 2019
Before I even met Dr. Zach I liked her immensely because she ordered a lot of x-rays that were done before I saw her on the same day. Just from the sheer amount of x-rays she ordered I knew she was extremely thorough before I actually met her for my appointment. She's an excellent physician and I'm glad I had a referral to see her. I will be continuing to see her and I look forward to working with her on my health issues.

Dr Zach is familiar with my history before she enters the room and offers options to fix the problem as a team.

June 8, 2019
She was very thorough in listening to my symptoms & establishing a plan to help correct the pain and issues. She found a disc issue causing the pain which I had previously been seen for at a different facility that told me it was just a pain I would have to live with. When in fact the pain is being caused by a disc pushing on spinal column nerve. Very much appreciated her and all of the staff working at this facility! Just knowing someone like Dr Zach & her team are working for people and listening to their needs is an immense relief!
