Always excellent. He has been my primary physician for many years. Former medical director of Watertown Regional Medical Center. ALWAYS takes time to talk and educate.

Review for Dr. Zambrano

I had to find a new Dr due to insurance and tried one and felt like he didn't have time for me. Then switched to Dr Riggs and he took the time to listen and get to know my health history which is a little challenging. But felt he was very genuine. Glad I found him!
