I had a severe case of OAB that was resistent to all medications. I've suffered from Crohn's Disease for 22 years and was not happy about spending any additional time in the bathroom. After discussing my options we went with an InterStim Neurostimulator. It changed my life, not only correcting my bladder issues but helping my Crohn's. Dr. Zylstra is patient, professional and informative. My biggest praise of him is that whenever I've had a question, he personally calls me himself, most Drs don't

Dr. Zylstra delivered my son and his wife Is my OBGYN and has been since 2011, she also saw me during my pregnancy and they are truly the best. The delivery was great and he let me take my time and didn't rush my delivery, very good doctor and very friendly both him and his wife. I'm on my third pregnancy and I'm seeing them again for this pregnancy and will continue to see his wife as my OBGYN. They have an amazing staff and they are so clean and professional and they care about their patients

Top-notch surgeon - I had a bladder prolapse. His bedside manner is one of explaining the options (in detail if you'd like) including the pros and cons of each. Straightforward with a laid-back style (in other words, calm, proficient and relaxed (isn't that what we want in a surgeon? I do!) No complications from the surgery. While overnight at the hospital, it was intimated that Dr. Z.'s patients do very well - not so much with other surgeons so I understand. I highly recommend Dr. Z.!

I worked with Dr Zylstra for 3 years when I lived in the area (have since moved). He saw me for problems with very heavy periods and fibroids as well as urinary incontinence. He explained things very well and explained tests as he was doing them and made sure I was comfortable. He He answered my many questions. I eventually had an Interstim implant put in five years ago. The urologist I see now is very impressed with the notes he received from Dr Zylstra and the way the Interstim was put in
