Testimonials & Clients

Rev. Fr. Anthony Pearson in San Antonio, TX

Dr. Zarse was a Godsend to me as I suffered with intense pain for so long and no doctor was able to address it. Dr. Zarse listened to my complaint, quickly diagnosed the cause and planned the treatment. The treatment was “spot on” in addressing the pain giving me relief for the first time. His care was compassionate, professional, and relieving. I strongly recommend Dr. Zarse!

Judith W. in New Braunfels, TX

Direct and responsive to physical complaint. After receiving treatment elsewhere for over a month, a one time back injection for severe sciatica resolved my symptoms in three days. Dr. Zarse is pleasant and “no nonsense.” He is knowledgeable and patient and put me completely at ease. I would definitely refer family and friends!
