*Dr. Patricia Zekan is a outstanding doctor. She is very professional, but concerned about providing the best care for her patients.

Dr Zekan is a great doctor, she was my doctor when I went through my breast cancer treatments I was so scared but she reassured me we were in this together and she would do everything possible to get me through this. Even now when I go in for my 6 month check-up I still feel so comfortable with her, you can feel the compassion and the fight she has in her for your life.
