I would not hesitate to recommend NP Elaine Zapata and the Gainesville GYN/ Oncology group to anyone looking for a GYN or Oncologist. My experience with this group, Elaine especially, has been nothing but positive. She takes the time to explain things and is willing to answer any questions. She will speak to you in terms you can understand and no question is unimportant to her. She will not rush you or make you feel that her next appointment is more important than you are.

I highly recommend Dr. Zapata to anyone reading this review. She is so informative, caring and treats you as a old friend rather then just another patient. In such a busy office I have never been rushed out, always permitted to ask questions of any kind. I just had surgery by them at north fla hospital and could not have had a better team of professionals then I have experienced with this staff. From the office help, to the nurse to the doctors I am always treated wonderful.

Elaine was very patient with me while explaining my rather complicated condition, and was able to help to alleviate my concerns. I would highly recommend her and the entire staff at Gainesville Gyn - Oncology of NFRMC.
