I was referred to Dr. Zalucki by my primary doctor, I could not have been happier. Dr. Zalucki is very thorough, very hands on throughout the entire process.

My experience has been excellent from my initial consult to include my recent colonoscopy. Dr. Zalucki is very thorough and professional. His office reminded me when it was time for my colonoscopy, and while I had anxiety, the experience was very good.
