We've met Dr. Zella for the first time today. He's excellent... very professional, courteous and caring. I've seen many doctors in my life, but only a few seem to be so knowledgeable and helpful as Dr. Zella. We highly recommend him to anyone looking for a pediatric GI doctor for their children. Thank you Dr. Zella! Patty & Maks
