Dr. Zachrich is the best we have ever had. We just wish with as many ladies that work there when we call the phone would be answered. It never is and we have to wait for someone to call us back.

Dr. Zachrich is extremely experienced and I highly recommend him. I am what would be considered a "complex" case and started to see him years ago - he continually exceeds my expectations even with my health challenges. He will even take the time to call me personally with test results as well as refer me out when needed. He is always professional and timely. What an outstandng Doctor!
