What People Say About Dr. Shane Zim, MD

Dr. Zim has literally changed my daughters life. Up till my daughter was 5 we had to communicate with sign language and pictures. She has a rare but yet common syndrome called Velocardio Facial. We sought help from several doctors that just didn't know what to do or how to help. Finding Dr. Zim was by chance and he detected and repaired a sub-mucos cleft my daughter had. The day after surgery our Daughter said Dad clearly for the first time ever and hasn't stopped talking since.
