Patient Comments (1)
in Santa Cruz, CA |
Dr Zanker has been my physician for almost 6 years. She and her staff keep excellent records and notes, and she is amazing at looking at the big picture. Discussing my ongoing depression and fatigue at my last physical, she recommended a sleep study. Sure enough, I have moderate sleep apnea. and now - with a CPAP machine - my sleep is better, and my fatigue and depression are lessening. She is attentive and compassionate, listens well, and has a gentleness and good humor that are reassuring.
