I was given excellent care by Dr. Zahn's office staff and the doctor himself, his mid level assistants and nurses.

I was satisfied with this visit

Was very good explaining everything

The ultrasound testing & dr. appointment need to be closer. Had to wait 30 min. before I could see doctor.

No problems. Very pleased with doctor & staff. Will cheerfully use them again.

Have to schedule out for a month or more.

Dr Zahn is a very compassionate caring person.

[...] took care of getting hospital CT's & MRI, MRA records which was a great relief as I did not know where to start with that - (Non Providence Hosp.).

They always provide very good service.

Though Dr. Zhan my be a fine physician his ability to meet with his patients on time is horrible. [...] I waited for nearly an hour but had to leave for a business appointment. So I only saw the M.A. and P.A. but not Dr. Zhan.

great experience. thank you!

Very good.

Too long of wait in waiting room & treatment exam rooms!

He answered my questions & took the catheter out of my neck which made me very happy.
