I'm a female and talking to Dr. Zelinskas is super easy. He's my number one doctor for everything! He literally does it all! From adjustments and dry-needling to your everyday check up. And his wife does podiatry (my podiatrist too). He'd be my gynecologist too if I didn't love the one I already have. Dr. Zelinskas is a great doctor and has always been able to help me, no matter what the issue. His staff might not be happy about it, but if he knows you need or want to get in with him that he'll make it happen!

I have avoided doctors like the plague for 20 years, because it takes forever to get an appointment, you wait until we’ll past your scheduled time, and then meet with someone who wants you out of their presence ASAP. But, my time had come and I knew I had to find a doctor. My experience with Dr. Z has been nothing short of awesome. It was easy to schedule an appointment, even as a new patient. He was warm, welcoming, and honest. His approach to my care has truly been refreshing and it makes me almost look forward to going to the doctor in the future. Almost. ??

John Serrano – Jun 19, 2020
Dr. Z was very impatient, he was rude and quickly got an attitude with me. He did not care to listen to my health concerns. I had asked for him specifically because of the good reviews. I came to him for help and he could care less about any of my concerns or any solutions. I had walked out crying my eyes out and couldn’t talk. When I returned from the bathroom he already turned out the office light, did not check on me, say bye, or anything. He had a nurse give me a lab slip, with no instructions on what to do with it. (Locations/Fasting/etc.). Making me cry in public is something I will never forget. I am uninsured and unemployed, self pay should be treated the same as those with insurance. Not just being told to “go walk” and that’s it.

Dr. Z takes the time to go over your bloodwork, urine sample and prescriptions including a discussion on where and how to make improvements in my health. I believe him to be honest and caring with my best interest in mind. A follow up appointment was scheduled as well.

Dr. Zelinskas is wonderful. Very patient and sincere. I have been a patient of this practice for 35 years. When my doctor retired and I had to go to another doctor I was concerned. There was no need for concern. I am very very pleased with Dr. Z.
