I saw Dr. Zielinski in the spring of 2011 for cognitive impairment, which was attributed to chronic neurologic Lyme disease. I saw him three times a week for four weeks. During this time I had significant improvements. These included improved balance, reduction in vertigo, increased ability to process information, and a general increase in well-being….
“In 1995 I was diagnosed with Late Onset Hydrocephalus Aqueductal Stenosis at the age of 31. I have endured 25 surgeries (23 within the first five years) and seen eight different neurologists. In 2010 I had my 24th surgery to implant a programmable shunt, which began to turn my health and my life around. However, by the time I learned about Dr. Zielinski I felt pushed to my limit. It has been four months since that appointment and each time I leave thinking, “Wow! He cares. He listens. He analyzes without judging. He’s a charm!” He is helping me overcome other symptoms, such as poor balance, blurry vision, headaches, and rapid pulse that made me feel 77 instead of 47! I thought I was destined to live like this for the rest of my life. I feel that I have been given a second chance at health and vitality, and I have Dr. Zielinski to thank for much of it!”
My experience with Dr. Zielinski has been completely positive. I have had an intermittent problem with vertigo for 15 to 20 years. I saw all types of healthcare practitioners and would obtain some relief, but still had residual discomfort. Dr. Zielinski is extremely thorough in his examination and the tests he used helped to zero in on a treatment plan. His office staff are excellent and the entire experience has been positive.
In 2001 I was diagnosed with a movement disorder called dystonia. I was experiencing forced neck postures, severe jaw protrusion, and lost control of my tongue and had to use pen and paper to communicate in public. My experiences with specialists have ranged from one end of the spectrum to the other but never have I felt so cared for. The movement disorder causes slow thought processing and I have a clumsy way of communicating. Dr. Zielinski has been amazing at staying with me every step of the way helping me balance the delicacies of my disorder. His knowledge and understanding of what is going on inside my brain have validated me and given me the information I never had before. I have new hand movement and my future is much brighter than it was just a few months ago. I couldn’t be happier with the outcome of my treatment so far.
“Dr. Zielinski and his functional neurology team have significantly changed my life for the better. I had myriad neurological symptoms, including tremors, numbness, vertigo, fatigue, difficulty swallowing, and memory loss. I had been to numerous specialists since 2012 and various rehabilitation programs, including vestibular, physical, and ocular therapy. I had also spent well over $100,000 being treated for late-stage Lyme disease and vestibular migraines, with little improvement.
Dr. Zielinski made a difficult diagnosis that even the Mayo Clinic had been unable to determine. Dr. Zielinski was able to not only provide an accurate diagnosis, but also put together a straightforward rehab program that I could follow and that has been successful. He tailored the program to rebuilding the appropriate parts of the brain that were affected by my illness. He is very kind, compassionate, and thorough. Even within the course of my first session, my vertigo and tremors had noticeably decreased.”
