I chose medicine because I enjoy solving problems and helping patients better understand their condition. I have always enjoyed physics, mechanics, and sports/active lifestyles, so orthopedics and sports medicine was a very natural fit. It is always important to understand the natural history of any disease process or injury, to be able to compare different options for treatment. It is also important to understand the unique needs and desires of every patient to find the most satisfactory outcome for his or her specific injury.

Doctor Zinn explained everything and gave two options along with his recommendation. Was in and out in about 30 minutes. All questions answered and very satisfied with results.
The staffs help and the doctors nurse was delightful as Dr. Zinn was as well. Always appreciate kindness.
Dr. Zinn immediately found out what was wrong with my foot. He listened to me and assured PT will fix it. I like how he didn’t go the route of pain killers.
The doctor was very nice and helpful.
Both Dr Zinn and the nurse provided excellent service!
