I found that Dr Zollinger and staff are the best I have ever been to. I have been nothing but completely satisfied with the results and the care he gives. He does everything to find what is going on and takes steps to find the best treatment. He listens to all my concerns and answers all my questions. I highly recommend him to anyone in need of pain management.

Zollinger is a very poor doctor whom leaves his patients in pain. He misdiagnoses and doesn't care. His office staff is inept and uncaring. They’ll call cancelling your appt. and 3 days later call you saying you’re non-compliant for not showing for the very same appt. they previously cancelled. I left him 4 msg. over 3 day's that I was in pain, his assistant finally called back denying the first 3 msg. then told me to go to the ER and assured me he'd call back, he didn't. He left me to suffer!

This provider is awesome. I have been going around in circles for the last year with Chronic Migraines and have gotten nowhere with other providers in the area. I saw Dr. Zollinger on 12/12/2016 and he was very compassionate and understanding. He actually LISTENED to what I had to say. I would highly recommend him to all.

Dr.Zollinger is a kind and compassionate Doctor. He truly cares about his patients well being. I have been seeing him for about a year now and would not want to go anywhere else for pain management. The staff is always friendly and very helpful.

Dr.Z has treated me for well over a year now and with my PsA...I won't get better and need pain management for life...He is compassionate but remains balanced with some compromise but his boundaries are professional...no one I trust more to inject needless in my spine and joints than him (It hurts I cry every time, poor guy) wouldn't do it unless I have hope it helps. I'm never treated with disrespect from him and I absolutely think he is genuine in his desire to do the best for me. THANKS DOC
