"I enjoy building relationships with kids and their families to help discover how a patients unique strengths and challenges affect all members of their families, both individually and collectively. This family-centered emphasis is core to developmental and behavioral pediatrics. The opportunity to share so closely in families interests and concerns is my greatest privilege as a physician, whether addressing learning differences, social behaviors, tics or other developmental and behavioral features."

Recommendations

  • A Prosser, WA 04.30.14

    Dr. Zinner saw my son for advice/diagnosis for Tourettes. He was very resourceful. One of the best doctors we have seen to date.

  • Hyung-Goo Augusta, GA 10.07.13

    I had an opportunity to get his advice and opinion on autism, since I have been working on gene discovery of autism and intellectual disability. He is a very resourceful, kind, compassionate, and seasoned researcher and I definitely recommend him if your child has autism.

    My son has been seeing Dr Zinner for the past eight years. I always leave feeling like he took enough time to meet with us and answer our questions, and gives us good advice. I recommend this doctor!
