Dr. Zink has been treating my daughter, who has Down Syndrome for almost three years now. My daughter feels so comfortable with Dr. Zink that she often asks if we can just stop by the office to say, "Hello." From a parent stand-point, Dr. Zink gives me enough information that I can completely understand what to expect from a particular illness or medication. She takes extra time to answer questions. We are thrilled that she has moved to Coos Bay. She is exactly the doctor we had been hoping to find for our precious girl.

She is simply amazing. As a special educator, she has treated my own children and my students. There is no one better. She is missed greatly!

Dr Zink provided care for both of my children for over 10 years. Our son and daughter suffer from severe migraines. Dr. Zink has also seen and cared for our foster children. She is an excellent pediatrician. She has advocated for our children with the school system and other doctors. In addition to her medical expertise, she is caring and compassionate. You won't find a better doctor.
