Dr Zac is retired now, but he is the best doctor that I have met, and I've had several, and worked with many more. He is patient, kind, understanding, and is willing to go the extra mile. When I lost my health insurance, he made sure to code the bill...creatively, so that I was able to receive care on my fixed income. He always made room for any patient that needed to see him, and spent as much time with them as they need. He worked so hard that I worried for him. I never minded waiting, because when I needed extra time, he never seemed to mind, so when I had to wait, I knew he was giving another patient the same quality care. I really miss him. Good luck, Dr Zac.
