Dr Z is knowledgeable, kind and takes the time to explain the surgery. He answers questions before you even ask them. I can't say enough positive about him.

Saved my life with an aortic valve replacement St Jude. That was 13 1/2 years ago at 58 I went back to work, retired to the farm and still very active at 71. I thank God and Dr. Z.

Doesn't care enough to let questions from patients get past his nurse.
