How likely are you to recommend Dr. Zelson?

(Select your rating)
Dr. Zelson has been there for all 5 of my children. He takes great care and has amazing patience. Yes its hard at times to get appointments but thats at many other places as well. When ever there is an emergency we can get right in and see at least someone. Zelson also took care of my wife and her 3 siblings when they were kids, so trust and comfort has always been there. Sad to hear Zelson is retiring. He will be missed and his care has been much appreciated.
