    I went into labor at 26 weeks and 5 days. My baby was coming that night, there was no stopping her from making her grand entrance. Dr. Zertuche kept me as calm as possible, as well the nurses. He arrived at the hospital really fast (knowing that i am high risk)I got prepped for an emergency Csection. I got sedated so I don't remember much but Dr. Z did all the right things and delivered my baby safely. She is premature and is doing great and healthy. Best doctor I EVER had He'll be my baby's too

    My son broke both wrist and had surgery. Dr. Zertuche was my son's floor doc. HE saw him for about 5 mins while in recovery after surgery and told my husband that he would be to busy to discharge my son the next morning so he would be discharged in the afternoon. HE never showed up that day or the following morning and the only reason we got discharged was because I threatened to file a complaint and demanded another doc. I felt as if he didnt have time to care.
