"My mother was in an Assisted Living Facility for the past three years. She passed away in March. Dr. Robert Zylstra helped me through the long days. His professional caring bed-side manor and acts of kindness will never be forgotten. He still calls me now and again to see how things are going - With great appreciation and gratitude."

Dr. Zylstra made a house call at my mother's house to complete the reqd paperwork prior to admission to a retirement home. He spent most of the time selling himself as uniquely qualified to deal with elderly patients. During his exam, he performed an unannounced breast exam with out removing any clothing including bra. It was more like a high school grope than a professional breast exam. Overall, I found him to be only interested in selling his service contract and not the patient. Booo.
