Dr. Zinsser is no frills and tells it like it is. I had both tummy tuck and breast reconstruction with augmentation at the same time and was really nervous. Marvelous results, minimal pain and caring staff. Thank you

I couldn't have asked for a more professional staff and Doctor. I had a few consultations before I found Dr. Zinsser. My main goal was to have a tummy tuck after two kids and some significant weight gain. The other doctors I had consultations with all tried to push other procedures on me. I felt that it was rude and obnoxious. Dr. Zinsser and his staff made me feel very comfortable and at ease with everything. Everything leading up to my surgery was easy and painless. The day of surgery was str

My experience with Dr. Zinsser and his staff was amazing. He really cares about his patients and is solely focused on making sure he address their concerns. My surgery and follow up care was outstanding and his staff are friendly, professional and a pleasure to deal with. I would highly recommend him and his practice.

It's such a shame that I put my trust in Dr. Zinsser and was left with a much worse appearance than before I began. I only wish that he would have admitted his poor quality of workmanship instead of belittling the gravity of the results.....not to mention trying to sell other types of treatments to help correct his mistakes. This is not meant to be a personal attack just a warning to everyone who may be thinking of liposuction. I never want to have anyone go through the embarrassment and regret

I would highly recommend Dr. Zinsser to anyone. From day one I knew he was the doctor I wanted to use for my breast augmentation and mastoplexy. He is kind, patient, and very professional. He explains everything as you go along and so that you'll understand everything from the surgery to the recovery. The results are great, and I am so glad that I chose him for my procedure.

Dr.Z, is a very knowledgeable,caring,personable Dr. He took the time to sit and answer all my questions which made me feel very comfortable in putting my life in his medical hands. That level of trust in his ability and how at peace I felt made it very easy to have my TT with his practice. I was very much at ease from my first appt. to my last 6 mths check up..My surgery far exceeded my expectations without any type of complications. I recommend him to you and yes I would use his practice again.

Dr. Zinsser has excellent bedside manner and is very thorough. I never felt rushed or uncomfortable; he strives to make sure you are completely happy!
