5 Stars  Excellent. Wait time was almost non-existant. Dr. Zell and her assistant were both great. Everything was explained; she did a more minimal procedure than suggested. She was proficient, professional, pleasant made me feel very comfortable. I am very satisfied with her and will see her again. I was notified within days of the outcome of the biopsy. –
