“Choice Care provides my patients a level of access and attention that would be impossible to sustain in a traditional practice with 3-4000 patients. My commitment to my Choice Care patients goes well beyond treating them when they are sick. I act as their trusted health advocate as they navigate the healthcare system. I work hard to keep my patients looking good and feeling great... In sickness and health I do my utmost to give my patients a better day.”
Her professional success has been the platform for her political career in health care. She serves as a member of the Board of Trustees of the California Medical Association after serving as President of the Los Angeles County Medical Association. She continues to work with the County of Los Angeles where she trained in both Internal
Medicine and Emergency Medicine and serves as a hospital commissioner representing
Supervisor Don Knabe. In her spare moments, she was able to get a patent for the “take home Pap Smear” and she owns that patent in most countries in the world. She is actively working to take that product to market.
She formulated “Z’s Choice,” a shampoo that actually makes your hair grow and she continues to explore opportunities to give her patients “a better day.”
“We must change the conversation about health care reform to center around patients and NOT insurance. Insurance is an actuarial bet that no one hopes to ever utilize. It should be readily affordable. Healthcare, on the other hand, should be something readily accessible to any person who seeks health care be it preventive or curative.”
Dr. Z is known as THE “go to person” when anyone in Southern California needs an advocate. Her proudest moments are the thank you’s she receives from her patients and their families and her best day is when “Mom has a good day”. Her goals are simple, “to change the healthcare delivery system in the United States.” “It will happen because it must. Our patients deserve to NOT sit in emergency rooms for hours on end. Our patients’ children need to know that their parents are in a secure medical community with a doctor who cares. And doctors need to know that their relationships with their patients are central to medical decision making without interference of government or health insurers.”
