A Well-earned Testimonial from Dr. Gilmore
Tony Zembrzuski, PA-C is incredibly professional, thorough and caring when dealing with each and every patient and always takes the time to explain the particulars of any condition/injury that a patient may be suffering from, not only to the patient themselves, but to myself and the rest of his supporting staff. He also takes the time to show and explain abnormalities and diagnosis in examinations and diagnostic images, which patients and staff highly appreciate. He is a pleasure to work with and his willingness to share his expertise with others raises the quality of work for his entire support staff. We all appreciate his efforts!

Hear from a Happy Patient
This was my first experience with having an injection in my neck so I was a little apprehensive about it. But Tony, and Nurse Rebecca, sat down and talked with me at lenght on what to expect and answered all of my questions, which I greatly appreciated. Tony was very adapt at applying the injections, which totaled 4 in all, which made the procedure go rather quickly. I also feel that his expetise really made the procedure less painful than it had to be. He has my full trust and his experience and bedside manner are exemplary. I would definitely recommend him.
