Dr. Z and his staff are the absolute best. They always listen and are quick to respond to any questions. Since Dr. Z travels to different areas it is generally very easy to get in to see him when necessary. Only giving them a 5 star because they will not allow me to give a 50!

Follow-up appointment for neck surgery. Dr. Zielinski looked at MRI x-ray to ensure neck surgery was progressing properly. Discussed next follow-up appointment, removal of neck brace, use of neck now that brace has been removed. The care, staff and service was excellent!

Dr Zilinski is an excellent spine surgeon! I have been his patient for about 3 years now, he fused my neck & lumbar spine. Both surgeries were completed without any complications & my results have been spectacular. I highly recommend him!
