Patient Testimonials

I would like to show my appreciation for Dr. Zisman’s dedication to research and treatment of lung diseases. Today I remain symptom free, and I am so grateful. - G. G.

On a scale of 1-10, Dr. Zisman is a 10. I got sick, went in to see him, and got down to business and fixed me up. They do a great job at Sansum Clinic, really wonderful service. If I ever have another problem, I'm going right back to Dr. Zisman. – Sebastian

After a long time with other doctors and not knowing what was wrong, I went to see Dr. Zisman at Sansum Clinic. Right away, he was able to make a diagnosis. He comes from UCLA where he was the head of pulmonology, so he's got a lot of connections. Dr. Zisman sent my biopsy off to the Mayo Clinic, and it was Dr. Zisman who got them to turn around analysis in record time. What makes him such a tremendous asset are what and who he knows. He's a great listener and really makes the doctor-patient relationship an A+. He's a real asset to Sansum Clinic. - Mary
