After going to a couple of spine card doctors and getting anything from no help to misdiagnosing, I finally got my wife to Dr. Schertzinger. As opposed to the earlier 'docs', Dr, Schertzinger was thorough, took plenty of time, listened well and asked her many questions in her visit. Then he followed up with scans and arrived at a treatment regimen and therapy for her back problem. With his background in sports medicine, etc., he is well qualified to deal with many orthopedic problems.

Excellent Physician who takes the time to figure out the root cause of your problem. He and his staff were caring and helped me tremendously with reversing arthritis in my hips. I highly recommend this physician and practice.

Excellent Physician who really took the time to uncover my underling medical issues and correct the root cause. I highly recommend this doctor for those who have complex medical issues.

As a former patient with a Complex Medical History, I can safely attest to Dr Z's Exceptional questioning and LISTENING Skills-both of which culminated into the most THOROUGH relationship I have ever had with any Physician, much less one treating me for Chronic Pain WHILE I was going through treatment for Hep-C. His Patience, skill as a Physician and overall Demeanor are second to none. I realize he is in the Position to HAVE TO say No to some folks, but for those who he can treat~WORTH IT~
