Your trust is our top concern.

We strive to keep the reviews trustworthy, honest & fair.

We monitor all reviews to ensure they comply with our guidelines and don’t include personal information, profanity, libel, defamation, harassment, obscenity or fraud.

All reviews are confirmed and audited before publication, and community members have the ability to flag inappropriate content for further review by our team.

Doctors can not pay for good reviews, nor can they pay to have negative reviews removed.

Any reviews that are deemed fraudulent or violate our guidelines will be removed immediately.

Dr. Zielinski is the best eye doctor I have ever had, I would recommend her to anyone, whether you need a routine eye exam or you are having an issue with your eye health. She is so personable and a great communicator, she really took the time to listen to me as well as to explain my prescription. You can tell she really cares about her patients and loves her job. Her office staff was incredibly nice and helpful and was able to get me an appointment within the week. SO thankful to have found her

I had to wait six months for the first appointment, and am pleased that did. I have some issues that worried me. Everyone in the office was personable, concerned, and interested in giving good care. Dr. Zielinski showed me the results of the tests and took the time to explain everything so I could understand my options. She is the best opthalmologist I have ever seen in my 70 years. I have already recommended her to my best friend.
