We were referred to Dr. Zbell by our family doctor that had also sent his father to Zbell. We absolutely love Zbell and have since referred a friend to him who is just as pleased as we were. My husband is not a fan of doctors, has been lucky prior to the past year with his health, however felt very comfortable with Dr. Zbell and even had his first surgical procedure in 30+ years after several months of treatment. Highly recommend Dr. Zbell to anyone with the highest of respect for him.

Dr. Zbell was very unprofessional. It was the most upsetting experience I have ever had in a doctor's office visit. I will never go back to him. If I need a urologist, I will find a different practice.

I was diagnosed with kidney cancer and I needed a radical nephrectomy. He called my room everyday during my recovery from surgery to check on me and he saved my life. I have no other Dr to be so personal with his care of his patients. He is truly an amazing Dr with magnificent bedside manner.
