in Macomb, MI |
In 2006, Dr. Zingas performed surgery for my posterior tibial tendon rupture. I searched for 2 yrs. for the 'right' surgeon. Dr. Zingas literally rebuilt my foot --- the following year, he placed an internal orthotic in my opposite foot, to prevent the same rupture. AND fixed my horrific bunions! Two PERFECT feet ever since! In 2015, I went thru 2 mos. of combo radiation & chemo for rectal cancer - & was told "WALK 2 miles a day!" My GOOD feet made that possible. Cured! Thanks Dr.Zingas!!
Dr. Zingas is a great doctor. He was very informative during my pre-surgical consultation and he performed an ankle fusion that was a great success for my arthritic pain.

I made my appointment with Dr. Zingas and was able to get in very quick. He was very nice and thorough and the staff was great. I highly recommend this office and Dr. Zingas.

Dr Zingas was recommended to me by another patient. My foot/ankle issues were not improving and I wanted a second opinion. I was able to see him and get some relief. The office staff was great and I would highly recommend them
in Harrison Twp, MI |
It's a very busy office but for very good reason, I have seen Dr Dietz in the past and he referred me to Dr Zingas for my foot. They were both able to treat my problem without surgery! And the staff is always so nice despite being so busy!
in Roseville, MI |
I was referred by my friend and finally made an appointment. I was scheduled about 2 weeks out, but was so happy to get in to see him. He gave me multiple treatment options and was very helpful in helping me decide which would be the best. I was very happy with my visit and the staff in the office was very helpful
in Roseville, MI |
I was referred to this office by my friend for an ongoing foot problem. Dr. Zingas was very thorough in asking questions to try to figure out the best course of treatment. I was very happy with his recommendations and ended up going through therapy to help fix my foot problem. I will highly recommend this office.
Harrison Twp, MI |
Excellent doctor. Took the time to help diagnosis my ongoing ankle issue. I have gone to therapy and tried injections. He offered me a few options and I decided on surgery. He was great throughout the surgical process and now that I am after surgery about 6 months, I am feeling great.
in Mt. Clemens |
Dr. Zingas took the time to evaluate my problem and offered multiple treatment options. He was very nice and even though his office is busy, I never felt like I wasn't important there. I would highly recommend him for any foot or ankle problems.
Worst experience I have ever had. Making an appt was even rough. Lady was so negative I asked to speak to someone else. Zingas has no sense of urgency. I waited in the waiting room for over an hour and had to wait an additional hour to see him. He was very short to answer and could careless about anything I was saying. I felt like he rushed though the whole 5 minutes I saw him and he was very cold. Called back to get a script change since my pharmacy didn't carry it and Kimmy was rude as hell!
Doctor is cold and arrogant. Suffers from confirmation bias. (Confirmation bias refers to a type of selective thinking whereby one tends to notice and to look for what confirms one's beliefs, and to ignore, not look for, or undervalue the relevance of what contradicts one's beliefs.)
in Grosse Pointe Woods, MI |
I accompanied an elderly client to see Dr. Zingas over a few months due to a fracture. He was timely, considerate and very practical with her. this is one of a few experiences with him, and would recommend him for lower extremity fractures.
