Dr. Zempolich garners trust and confidence with her evident knowledge and vast experience. Meeting with her calmed my anxiety about major surgery. Her approach to explaining what is known and what is not known by using drawings with her explanations was enlightening and helped me understand my condition and what was occurring inside my body. She is efficient but also took the time to make sure my understanding was a priority. I can see why my own incredible female doctor directed me to Dr. Zempolich.

Dr. Zempolich is an incredibly skilled physician and surgeon. I have been in her care for about 12 years and by have always been treated with kindness, dignity, and respect. She has my complete trust. I would recommend her to anyone, anytime, anywhere. She has always taken the time to make sure I understand and am comfortable with treatment plans and procedures. As an ovarian cancer patient and survivior, I highly recommend Dr. Zempolich for the treatment of any gynecologic cancer.

My doctor recommended Dr. Zempolich for consultation about having a hysterectomy. My Dr. was able to make an appointment with Dr. Zempolich very quickly and I was able to meet with her to discuss what needed to happen. At our first meeting I felt very comfortable with Dr. Zempolich and I appreciated how she explained things to me and answered my questions. A time for the surgery was scheduled and I felt confident that she would do her best in my behalf.

Worst doctor I saw out of 7 for cervical cancer. She made me wait TWO hours in the room to see her and then spent 16 mins with me. Billed my insurance for 45 mins too! The patient ahead of me waited 1.5 hours to be seen! She also didnt listen nor did she seem to care about anything I said. Instead she dictated to me rather than have a conversation. The absolute worst medical experience altogether that I have EVER had! I suggest to do yourself a favor and choose someone else. Anyone else.

Although I personally have never met Dr. Zempolich my mother was in her care. As a concerned son, I was very appreciative of the manner Dr. Zempolich took care of my mother who has/had cancer and for being calm and informative for both my mother and father as she diagnosed and determined a plan of action. She put both of my parents at ease and did a superb job in the procedure of removing the cancer. Hope was restored.

Dr. Zimpolich was respectful and sensitive to my anxieties and fears. She explained my condition well using a sketch as a reference. She also explained the treatment, time frames for recovery and prognosis. I am grateful for her treatment and because of her I have my life back.

Dr. Zempolich is one of the most thorough and compassionate person we have been fortunate enough to have visited. Before, during, and after visits and surgery made sure we knew wghat was expected and how things went. I highly recommend that if you are looking or need the services she provides that you seriously consider her as your Doctor.
