About Dr. Zorich
We know, we know! You went to a fancy school! You have outstanding credentials! You specialize in words that are hard to pronounce, right? Let’s skip the boring details… What I can tell you is that, without a doubt, my patients have taught me more about medicine than any school or textbook ever will, and I look forward to continuing my education.
For me, family medicine provides wonderful variety and unique experiences with each day, each patient, and each puzzle… as I recall one of my mentors describing his excitement and his approach to the challenge of medicine – “It’s like entering the theatre in the middle of a movie. The story may not make sense at first, give it time.”
For those who just have to have the details, I graduated summa cum laude in 1992 from SUNY at Buffalo with an early acceptance scholarship to the university’s School of Medicine, as well as my B.A. after studying physical anthropology. In 1996, I received my medical degree and went on to complete my residency training with the Niagara Falls Family Medicine Residency Program. Finally, I partnered with my colleagues here at Niagara Family Medicine Associates, with whom I am proud to have been practicing since 1999.
Outside of medicine, some of my interests include drawing and design, music, and trying to stay fit. I also enjoy rooting for our Buffalo Sabres and Buffalo Bills, and well, perhaps “enjoy” isn’t the right verbiage… someday, however, we will hopefully realize a championship! Most importantly, I love being a husband and a father to my two growing boys who, by the way, are also teaching me new lessons… almost every day! “FAMILY” is what it’s all about.
Don’t Delay Getting Care
Don’t put your healthcare needs on hold. Whether you have a specific health concern or it’s time for an annual wellness visit, we’re here to provide you with the care you need in a safe environment.
- To keep you and our staff safe, we have put the following safeguards in place.
Patients will be prescreened on the phone before the visit to ensure anyone with symptoms consistent with a risk of COVID infection do not come to the office.
- When arriving at the office, patients will be required to:
- Have their temperature taken and answer additional Covid-19 specific questions.
- Wear a facemask or a cloth face covering, in accordance with the CDC guidelines.
- To maintain social distancing in our waiting areas, patients will be asked to stay a minimum of six-feet away from others.
- We are limiting the office visits to the patient only, but if you must have a companion at your visit, please make sure only one person accompanies you and is also wearing a facemask.
- Our offices are continuing our regular practice of sanitizing each room after patients are seen.
- All the staff are wearing appropriate personal protective equipment (PPE) to ensure everyone’s safety.
If you do not feel comfortable coming into the office, we offer telephone or video visits to discuss your symptoms and determine the most appropriate treatment plan, including recommending an in-office visit when necessary.
