My only concern is twice in a row now I've received prescriptions the co-pay for which was several hundred dollars. I filled the first, but declined the last one.

Outstanding!!! Dr. Zone answered all questions politely and thoroughly, examined most of my body despite symptoms only in mouth and throat. He explained the cause (side effect) of another visible minor condition that showed up.

August 04, 2014

Excellent care. A Physician's assistant at another practice in WVC told me that "Warts are never cancerous" although this one was really growing. I didn't feel comfortable with his advice nor did my PCP or cardiologist. Dr. Zone agreed and said "if it grows back it might be cancer and must come off." Thank goodness for Dr. Zone!!

March 18, 2013

Dr. Zone was great. I had a very good experience. I was nervous about what would need to be done (how many tissue samples would have to be taken, how deep they'd have to go, how much pain I'd be in afterwards) and told him I was a big baby. He was very reassuring and put me at ease with his relaxed attitude and teasing, although he was always very professional. I really liked him and feel good about the care I will receive from him. I assumed I'd hear back about the biopsy results some time last week, but so far have not. Soon, I'm sure.

Academic Bio

Dr. Zone has had an interest in celiac disease and the cutaneous manifestations of celiac disease since beginning his investigative career in 1977. This has included studies of basic mechanisms of mucosal immunology mediated by IgA. These studies have defined the mechanism by which IgA epidermal transglutaminase antibody is deposited in the skin in dermatitis herpetiformis, a cutaneous manifestation of celiac disease. A recent publication in the Journal of Immunology is the first to describe the passive transfer of IgA antibodies to epidermal transglutaminase to human skin transplanted to SCID mice. During the years of studying transglutaminase antibodies in patients with celiac disease, he has led extensive studies of the inheritance of celiac disease, findings in high risk populations such as Down syndrome, and correlation of serological testing with small intestinal biopsy findings. A representative sampling of the publications related to Dr. Zone's extensive studies of IgA, transglutaminase antibodies and celiac disease is present in the attached bibliography.
