Guthrie Patient: October 2019
Dr Z. is wonderful. His bedside manner is exceptional. When dealing with breast cancer, a caring, gentle, and careful approach is just what I needed as a patient. Dr Z. has been thorough, caring, attentive, and professional. After each lab report came back, he immediately called me to explain the results, even after hours. I greatly appreciated that, and that he was willing to spend the time on the phone explaining anything. Dr Z. provides excellent care.
