I wish I had found Dr Zehnder a long time ago. Can't sing his praises enough. He was incredible. Well versed in my history, a great listener, offered advice and ordered tests based on our conversation and explained thoroughly the results of X-rays and MRIs. He was as doctors use to be before the constraints of time, allowing the visit to be thorough.
