Dr. Zempolich was personally insensitive, interrupted me while I was trying to tell her about my symptoms, and ended up giving me general statistics instead of offering a specific analysis of my MRI images. I have a massive uterine tumor that could be cancerous, which is why I was referred to her, but she was lackadaisical about scheduling surgery, and then bumped me even later. I would never recommend this doctor. A cancer doc needs to be kind and conscientiousness. Dr. Zempolich is neither.

She is the best laparoscopic surgeon around - I had very little pain and very small incisions with my hysterectomy. She has an excellent bedside manner - very caring and she is also very thorough and knowledgeable. I would highly recommend her.
in Cottonwood Heights, UT |
Starting with my first consultation to the end of my care from her, I had a very satisfying experience. She explained my diagnostic tests and completely. Subsequently, she did my surgery which was a complete success. If you want the best gyno-oncologist, she is the very best in the valley!
