Success Stories

“I am a physician assistant specializing in anesthesiology. Dr. Z has been my Chiropractor for about 10 years. He is not only caring, interested and focused on his patients, but has a wealth of knowledge in many disciplines. His treatments helped me recover from 2 autoimmune disorders and the improvement was documented by quarterly, objective blood chemistry tests performed and verified independently by my internist. He has spent countless hours researching my health concerns to give me the latest studies and help direct my path to health. Not only is he an outstanding chiropractor, but he’s also a great mentor and friend. I highly and without reservation recommend Dr. Zezula to anyone interested in improving their health.”
Lora Lee Bell, Atlanta, Georgia
“When I gave the lab report with my blood work to Dr. Zezula, he worked up a report that showed where I was out of balance. There were so many things that I needed to work on, and my primary physician hadn’t mentioned any of them. I wasn’t feeling well, but didn’t know why. After seeing Dr. Zezula and going through his functional medicine evaluation, I feel like I’ve taken control of my health as an active participant. The various food-based natural supplements helped me feel 100% better within a week.”
Kevin Wilson, Acworth, Georgia
“I have been a patient of Dr. Zezula for over thirteen years. His approach to functional medicine and his emphasis on blood chemistry have been fundamental in addressing a number of health issues of mine and provided a rational, measureable approach to improvement. Patient involvement is key, and the team concept he utilizes assists the patient in taking more responsibility for their healthcare management.”
“I don’t even know where to begin…..after a few years of extreme stress and becoming very ill, I was treated by Dr. Zezula. I was having weight gain. hot flashes, lack of focus, extreme anxiety and bad insomnia! The most I could sleep at any time was 2 hours. I tried the usual drugs, Ambien, and Xanax. With no improvement. He spent endless hours evaluating my blood work and other test results and got me on a natural program of supplements. I feel the best I have felt in 10 years. My weight has returned to normal. I sleep with out anything, 7 to 8 hours a night. Anxiety is completely gone and my memory, focus, and brain speed have improved tremendously. I feel human again! I never would be here if it wasn’t for him. I will always be grateful.”
Peggy Howard, Atlanta, Georgia
“After about 3 or 4 years of knowing that “something” was wrong with my 13 year old daughter, I witnessed a tremendous change in a young lady at our church who had been treated by Dr. Zezula.  I didn’t even know where to begin, but the functional medicine questionnaire was a great beginning, as Dr. Zezula correctly diagnosed an autoimmune disorder, among other things, just from the answers she gave! My daughter was extremely defensive with the initial consult, but Dr. Zezula was not put off at all. He proceeded to make my daughter feel safe and accepted! Not only was she put on the road to health, she is now running cross country in her school, and just ran a 5 mile race beating all the young women including the female coach! Personally, I thought that I was a “train wreck”, after having had a small stroke and heavy metal poisoning, but within 10 minutes or so of Dr. Zezula’s “brain based” exercises, I improved my balance so that I can balance “tightrope” walking with my eyes closed; I was not able to do this previously and almost fell down. His treatments also helped my reflexes when driving and many other things. Being an RN with advanced degrees, I know these techniques are not widely practiced in traditional medicine. I am grateful for Dr. Zezula’s quest for treatments that actually work, and for his genuine concern for his patients. The stress of not knowing is gone, with a true course of treatment available for our family. Thank you Dr. Zezula!”
L. Adams, RN
