Since my son was born 17 years ago, we have had a number of different pediatric cardiologists, pediatricians, etc., and Dr. Zinn is hands down the BEST of them all! He always takes the time to listen in order to truly understand our concerns and questions. He takes great time and care in explaining and answering those concerns and questions as well. Dr. Zinn is friendly, personable, extremely knowledgeable and communicates complicated medical issues in easy-to-understand ways. Where many doctors' offices I have been in have made me feel rushed and pushed through as just another number, Dr. Zinn has NEVER done that. He takes whatever time is necessary to do a thorough exam, run appropriate tests, and speak with both my son and I regarding any questions and concerns we may have. It is so nice to have a doctor that sees you and treats you as people, and not just patients. Dr. Zinn has that gift. There have also been times I have had to contact his office after hours or on weekends, and I have always received prompt responses and follow-up calls later to check on my son. Regarding testing, Dr. Zinn communicates clearly what tests are recommended and the reasons for those tests, but he has never pressured me into having testing performed that I did not want done on my son at that time. I am very thankful Dr. Zinn is my son's cardiologist and I pray that he never leaves Pittsburgh!
Dr. Zinn was awesome! We went in very worried and concerned about our son and Dr. Zinn had a calming impact immediately. He also developed rapport with our son quickly and effectively.
excellent bedside manner- he was a very kind and personable doctor- put my son right at ease
Dr Zinn was amazing with our daughter! He made connections to her and talk to her on her level. I feel he went above and beyond to make her feel comfortable. He was willing to answer any and all of our questions and explained things to us very clearly.
He was very nice and friendly and interacting with my child
Dr. Zinn provided exceptional care to my son, especially because this was the first time we saw him in clinic, as opposed to in the hospital. Very impressed.
he was very polite to us and my son and answered any questions
Dr. Zinn was extremely kind and informative. He made our daughter feel comfortable with the assessment & examination process. He was thorough and professional. He spoke directly to our daughter to get factual information re:her symptoms.
speaks to my child as well as me during visits. courteous, respectful and easy to understand
Dr Zinn was great and even stressed the importance of hydration which was great as my son plays soccer
Dr. Zinn always goes over and above what I would expect from any medical provider. if the situation is an emergency or routine he gives 100%.
Dr. Zinn always takes the time to speak to the kids and get to know them. he doesn't talk about them as though they are not there. He answers all questions throughly and does not rush the appointment.
We LOVE Dr. Zinn!
The provider made sure we completely understood all tests performed and steps moving forward and made sure to explain things to my child in terms he, too, could understand.
Dr. Zinn was excellent. He was very attentive to my daughter's situation. He took the time and explain everything to her to where she understood what he was telling her. He never spoke down to her and treated her with respect. I highly recommend Dr. Zinn.
Dr. Zinn is great!
We love Dr. Zinn. he explained our son's condition extremely well and also got to know him on a personal level which seems rare these days in healthcare
Dr. Zinn was extremely respectful, thorough, and explained things in a way that was very easy for me to understand. I was also able to relay this information to family members, and I felt like I really comprehended what I was explaining to them.
The staff is some of the nicest people I've ever met and always go above and beyond to make sure my child has an enjoyable experience at his appointment.
considering this was a specialist checkup for a possible heart problem Dr Zinn made us feel very comfortable and secure in his knowledge of the condition. Thank God it was nothing worse and we don't have to be back but I would recommend him highly
we really liked Dr. Zinn, we will follow up with him again
dr z is awesome! I always feel bad for taking up so much of his time I know he has to be busy but he always sits and explains everything to us, he makes me feel comfortable and at ease with my daughter's heart condition and totally reassured me that I have no reason to be afraid that I can not handle anything she throws at me! I always leave the office feeling that my sweet girl is very well taken care of!
We LOVE Dr. Zinn
aEveryone in the office was excellent. They all treated me and my children with respect and care. Drr. Zinn is outstanding.
Dr. Zinn is great with our son and he listens to everything we say. We have never once felt rushed with him or like we were just another number. He answers every one of our questions and takes his time doing so. We are beyond blessed to have such an amazing Doctor for our son.
Dr. Zinn is the best pediatric cardiologist that we have ever had. We felt very disconnected with our last heart doctor and were nervous when he retired and Dr. Zinn got our case. We didn't know what to expect, but he is the best and always treats us with respect and kindness and patience.
Dr. Zinn was great! We were so worried about our child's newly diagnosed heart murmur and he spent a lot of time talking to us and listening to our sons heart. He ordered the ekg and the echo to rule out anything major. He eased our fears and luckily we got good news!
No bad experience during this visit
Dr. Zinn was wonderful. Though it was our first visit with him, and though my child is a "low priority" case, he made us feel like she was the only patient he had to worry about that day. He was engaged and engaging (he got a reticent 13yo to talk!) and took the time to get to know us and help us get to know him. I will be very pleased to continued my child's care with him.
the dr was excellent.
everyone was helpful
