I needed surgery and did not like the doctor I was seeing. I was referred to Dr. Zingas by a friend and had surgery 3 months ago and feel so much better.
in Chesterfield, MI |
Very good doctor...the office was busy, but the girls up front were very quick. The wait wasn't bad and the follow up care after my treatment was fantastic. I will refer anyone who needs an ortho doctor here to this office.

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.
