Dr Zhong was friendly, professional & seemed very concerned about my current problem. This was the 1st time to see her & I want her to be my primary doctor. Dr Zhong was very thorough and asked questions, and answered all my questions.I left feeling very confident with her recommendations to help with my left knee pain. Also, we discussed a follow-up & about a recheck on my blood sugar. The previous physician took me off my diabetes medication as I had it under control with diet. But future blood work is needed to make the diabetes is still good & she recognized that. I really like her.

Dr. Zhong was so thorough, and truly cared to help me. She took time out of her schedule just to get me an appointment with her and talked with me for over an hour! I could not recommend her enough! So happy to have her as my primary care doctor now.

I never write reviews but I had to give Dr Zhong credit for how my visit went with her. Dr Zhong listened to me and discussed solutions to every problem I had. She sent in orders for me to see specialist without me asking or begging for help. She was so personable and pleasant to talk to. I have had providers that would not address my issues and refused to treat me. I am so glad that I met Dr.Zhong and I am happy she is my primary provider.

Julie was such a joy to have as a doctor. I came in nervous and very scared, as I'm not a fan of doctors, and she and her staff treated me with such kindness and professionalism. They all listened to my concerns and helped me feel taken care of. I would suggest this practice to anyone and am so excited to have found a doctor that can support me so well.

Dr. Zhong was extremely professional, kind, concerned, and spent extra time listening to my concerns. She referred me to get help with depression/anxiety. She was eryconcerned about my high A1C results and prescribed additional meds. I think that she's a outstanding asset to the practice, and I'd love to see her again!
