I have only been going here for a couple of months, but I love how fun the group is and how friendly they are. They truly make me feel calm. I was so scared and nervous before I had my first infusion but they made me laugh and feel comfortable. I will stay with them forever.

I have been a patient of Iris Zinks for about 7 years, I found her not only to be a wonderful nurse practitioner but a great listener. She is serious about your health and she has a sense of humor. Her staff is polite and the office is spotless. I could see a physician in Jackson where I live but I told her I would drive 100 miles to see her. I feel so much better since I have been in her care.

- Ruth T.

I’ve been coming here for over three years. The entire staff is knowledgeable, friendly and accomodating. My health has improved and I love Iris and Chris.

- Cindy R.

Wonderful, caring staff and a clean office. I feel like part of the family here. Patients always come first, this office is the best.
