Patient Comments (1)

in Salt Lake City, UT |
Dr. Zipnick was my father's spinal surgeon when he resided and worked in Arizona. Since relocating to Utah, he has become my doctor. His professionalism and level of experience are unsurpassed. He is by far one of the greatest doctors/surgeons I have ever had...and I've had several.
