From the moment I met with Dr Zinsser I "knew" this was the doctor for me! He was very thorough with explaining EVERYTHING. His staff was "on the ball" with details - even the ones I had not thought of - in preparing for my surgery. No one made me feel that I was taking up their time. The day of surgery -while I was being "prepped," Dr Z met with me briefly and THAT helped me feel calm &that I was indeed in good hands. After the surgery Dr Zinsser called later that evening to make sure all was going as expected. Follow up appts were thorough and kept me informed as to what I was to do (and not do). Every step of the way was a wonderful experience. And my outcome is even better than I had hoped for. I came away from the whole experience feeling that not only did I get exceptional work from Dr. Zinsser's talent as a plastic surgeon, but that this doctor has excellent "people skills," and THAT he cares about what he does....And so does his staff!

I had saline implants that were done in 2004 I was having capsular contracture and needed to have them replaced. Dr Zinsser did an amazing job. My new implants look and feel amazing and are so much more natural than my old saline implants. I am thrilled with the results!

Dr. Zinsser and his staff are the best. Very professional, informative, friendly. They were willing and able to discuss options and concerns. I had interviewed several other plastic surgeons and selected this practice . What a good choice I made.

I had consultations with 2 other plastic surgeons before deciding on Dr Zinsser. He made me feel comfortable and at ease. He was also more affordable and even gives discounts to nurses, teachers, and first responders. I'm a Registered Nurse and I am highly satisfied with my results and have recommended him to several of my colleagues.

Dr. Zinsser is very thorough. He explained everything inside and out. His professionalism and bed side manner left me (& my husband) feeling completely at ease. He was so attentive before and after my surgery. I never felt like just another number. He made himself available after hours on the weekend.! Really can't say enough . Bottom line , Dr Zinsser is top of the line!

Thrilled with my results and I can't stop staring! For the first time ever in my life I can stand with confidence with and without clothes! I had a lower body lift/belt lipectomy 8 weeks ago and Dr. Z and his team made me feel comfortable, welcome and most of all confident that my results would be exactly as I had hoped. This procedure has changed my life and I cannot thank him enough!!!!

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

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.
