I have been going to Dr. Zalatimo for 17 years now. He has delivered all four of my high risk pregnancies. He is very thorough and takes the time to listen to his patients. Words cannot express the gratitude I have for him.

I switched over to Dr. Zalatimo in Feb 2018 and it was the best decision I ever made. I have been struggling with ovarian cysts and all my prior doctor wanted to do is put me on birth control. Not the answer I needed since I wanted to have kids! I have been given more answers with Dr. Zalatimo in the few months I have been with him than I have in the many prior years with my old doctor. He is very thorough and makes you feel comfortable. And his staff is as wonderful as he is!
