Dr. Zlab is thorough in his assessment and provides a clear concise explanation of treatment. I have found him a very pleasant person in discussing treatment. His staff is a very pleasant and kind.. I have never waited for more than 10 minutes in the office and have always been able to get an appointment in a timely manner. I couldn't be happier.
