  • Cardiovascular Disease
  • Internal Medicine

    An internist is a physician who focuses on the diagnosis and treatment of conditions that affect the adult population—both acute and chronic.
    These doctors are often who adults see as their primary physicians because they treat a broad range of illnesses that do not require surgical or specialist interventions. They also work to help a patient maintain optimal health in order to prevent the onset of disease.
    In addition to treating the common cold and flu, internists also treat chronic diseases like diabetes and heart disease.

best dr. ever!

while his bedside manner may not be comforting.... I cant think of any other heart doctor I would want to see. His calmness under pressure and his knowledge and skill are second to none! I would have been dead 40 yrs ago if not for what he did and still does to make sure I stay around to enjoy my grandchildren for a while longer. After my first heart attack when I was in my early 40's he became my dr. I have on occasion see others in his office they are all fine drs. but he really saved my lilfe not once but 3 times over the years. I know he can be a little gruff but he has a soft side too and he really cares for his patients.,

Cold, callous, and foul-mouthed

Dr. Zelinger is *not* a nice doctor, by any means. His eyes are always cold and his bedside manner is demeaning. I would not recommend this man to anyone. Still, MidAmerica is a great group. Any doctor in the group would be better than Dr. Zelinger. I wish MidAmerica would just fire this guy. He is a discredit to what is otherwise an outstanding group. He is a sore thumb.
