Westborough, MA |
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
