Megan is my medical "partner" as I travel through this disease. Megan is informed and relays her knowledge in a way that encourages me to move forward. My visits fullfil my need to know how best to address the future. I have been referred for possible DBS and I trust Megan's insight. I am hopeful.

May 11, 2016

PA Megan Zorn has been right by or side and very supportive, motivational, empathetic, and knowledgeable from our very first appointment 9 years ago. We are so thankful that she has chosen to remain with the neurological clinic at the UofU. Having her as our guide through this adventure has helped us through many a bump in the road and has facilitated the possibility for us to have many days and months of good control of symptoms and smoother sailing. She is almost family to us. She is a great resource and asset to the success of this clinic.

Meghan Zorn is a consummate, caring professional. Her attentiveness is warm and superb.

May 01, 2016

so knowledgable and remembers our previous concerns

April 04, 2016

good

March 28, 2016

I have recommended this care provider to a few people I know who have recently been diagnosed with Parkinson's disease. I have received care at other offices, and they don't even begin to compare to the excellent care that I've received at this clinic.

March 23, 2016

Excellent

March 18, 2016

He didn't catch some of the explanation due to hearing loss or due to concentrating on what to ask next. The printout was very helpful for spouse to review with him what he had missed.

March 18, 2016

Megan was very knowledgeable and really easy to talk to.

March 13, 2016

Meghan didn't seem rushed in any way and spoke to me in terms I could understand, She seemed to care about my needs and gave encouraging comments about my progress. I left feeling I was in good hands.

Meghan Zorn took her time, circled back where needed and inspires confidence.

January 12, 2016

PA Megan Zorn is as knowledgeable as any doctor I have ever seen. I am completely confident in her recommendations for treatment of my condition.

December 13, 2015

good experience

November 15, 2015

Originally, I saw Dr. Sprecher, and he was caring and careful, but miss-diagnosaed my condition. Meghan's observations and questions were pointed and careful thus enabling her to offer a new diagnosis. She also consulted with Dr. Sprock. UI have been singing her praises.

November 07, 2015

Excellent

November 06, 2015

Always love you, Meghan. :)

October 29, 2015

Meghan often jumps to incorrect conclusions regarding my thoughts, actions, and intentions. She will then proceed with making generalizations, assumptions, and decisions based on her misperceptions. This leads her to make statements to me that are not only wrong but can be insulting. I think it would be better for her to accept that there can be errors, sometimes large errors, in how we all read other's thoughts and intentions. Accepting that you may not be fully understanding the patient can allow more flexibility in her relationship with patients and limit the ill feelings her sometimes erroneous and harsh judgements can cause. Spending more time listening to the patient and clarifying their questions, statements and concerns instead of jumping to erroneous conclusions would help alot, also.

October 29, 2015

Great

October 12, 2015

We saw Megan Zom for the first time and were VERY impressed with her. She was wonderful!

October 11, 2015

September 29, 2015

Meghan was an angel sent to rescue me.

August 21, 2015

Zorn was excellent

August 21, 2015

Meghan Zorn is a consummate professional with extraordinary knowledge of Parkinson's disease. She is the perfect assistant for Dr. Shprecher as I follow my own case.

July 06, 2015

I had several issues and each one was addressed. Care plan was explained in a caring way, not condescending.

June 10, 2015

all good

May 04, 2015

Everyone with whom I had contact during this visit was exceedingly caring, and Megan Zorn always has given thought to the possibilities that might improve my situation.

April 18, 2015

all good

April 01, 2015

Ms Zorn notes my concerns but doe not offer solutions . I would like more MD input.

March 28, 2015

Megan is great. I came in with a list of concerns and she addressed them all. She has an empathic connection derived from a thorough understanding of PD and symptoms. She's like that person you are always happy to see at a party. She remembers me as a person. personnp7ersonal

March 23, 2015

We have been very pleased with the care we have received from both Megan Zorn and Dr. Shprecher. We do not feel rushed. They both take the time needed to answer our questions . We appreciate the print out we receive at the end of the appointment with the instructions that they have given us verbally. We have recommended your clinic to several friends whose parents have similar problems.

March 15, 2015

experimenting with different meds is necessary for my condition, but sometimes frustrating and confusing

March 02, 2015

Meghan Zorn is a gem--make sure you pay her well! She's friendly, professional, and happy. I feel better just by being in the same room with her. Her explanations are clear and contain just enough information to make me feel i'm getting the whole story without being dumped on. She spends quality time with me without wasting my time. She is as knowledgeable as any full-fledged doctor on the topics we discussed (PD and related meds). I am totally pleased with the interactions I've had with Meghan Zorn. And with the clinic staff as a whole.

March 01, 2015

I received excellent advice on using the medications I'm on. The main concern was that I was missing one dosage around noontime. I have since purchased a pill-minder that sets off an alarm when its time to take my pills. This was one of the recommendations of the PA seeing me.

February 22, 2015

Megan was great..

January 26, 2015

Meghan Zorn ordered a urine test, which was contaminated when taken. So they sent home an order to be done at our local hospital. It was done Saturday, and we await results. We hope we will get a call from Meghan or staff to tell us if an infection is present and treatment.

January 19, 2015

I've loved Mehgan from the 1st time I met with her. I always leave feeling something positive, despite the progression of my disease.

September 23, 2014

Megan Zorn always excellent

September 17, 2014

Megan is terrific

September 14, 2014

Good

September 13, 2014

After so many years the visits are not difficult experiences. I always feel that things are framed in a positive light, and even though it might be discouraging to deal with the PD, I have hope that there are alternatives that can help. For better physical condition, less pain, better movement, I have a referral to a physical therapist in the PD program. I hope I can receive help to keep my life style from changing too drastically.

September 13, 2014

Very good experience

September 02, 2014

Megan is very kind, helpful and professional

August 30, 2014

We enjoy our visits with Megan very much.

August 29, 2014

There had been a mix-up of meds I am taking, and Dr. Zorn spotted that fact and corrected it. I would never have known that if she hadn't been right on top of things.

August 27, 2014

Excellent care

August 24, 2014

This is an outstanding Clinic.

August 17, 2014

I obviously had one of your best care providers as everyone in the group was superb. Wish every care group was as pleasant as the group I had this last time I was there. Keep every one so happy.

August 03, 2014

Melissa was truly a delight. She was very thorough and paid attention to what we were saying.

July 28, 2014

Megan is outstanding. I had 2 other neurologists before I came to Megan. I wouldn't go to anyone else unless she was no longer available.

July 14, 2014

Good communication

June 28, 2014

Awesome

June 28, 2014

Megan Zorn was exceptional in terms of knowledge and communication skills.

June 27, 2014

Meghan always gives her full attention and time to her patients.

June 06, 2014

Meghan Zorn was very knowledgeable and took time to explain the things I needed to know. Asked lots of questions to make sure she understood what I was telling her. Made me feel completely at ease with what was being discussed and what needed to be done. I really like her.

April 23, 2014

Productive visit.

April 21, 2014

No a lot of discussion about the new med prescribed... do I ramp up or just star taking it?

March 27, 2014

Dr. Zorn listened carefully to some concerns I have about PD and meds. She also carefully noted my condition and how I was doing.

March 06, 2014

I have and will continue to brag to everyone that I can how wonderful my experience continues to be no matter who I have seen. Megan in particular was extra helpful and concerned.

February 14, 2014

I appreciated the fact that Megan had researched my recent history prior to my visit. Thus, she was able to know what my situation was.

megan was very good she listened answered my questioned and truly cares about here patients.

December 07, 2013

I never feel rushed at the clinic. Provider takes her time explaining and listening.

December 05, 2013

I would recommend the entire neurology department - they smile, they are concerned. It seems I have been lucky as the team has been good since my first visit.

November 12, 2013

I don't think PA should be changing medications - Especially up/down 1 pill a day???? There needs to be more done for my tenors

October 24, 2013

She was not aware of what was done in his recent surgery. She moved his DBS settings a lot and then put them back to the settings after surgery which was no help at all. I could make that change at home. He is doing worse now then when we went in. She seemed unsure of what to do. I felt like it was a wasted visit.

October 14, 2013

Concerned about me as a person and does a very good job of making the visit a positive time

October 09, 2013

They took me off the drug which I had taken for 10 years and then put me back on it.

September 25, 2013

Very thorough and very helpful!

August 23, 2013

I just wish that we could have some more natural solutions to my Parkinson's than adding new meds all the time.

August 22, 2013

very helpful

August 19, 2013

Meghan is always good about explaining what we're doing and I enjoy having students present

August 04, 2013

July 01, 2013

Every time i see this survey--which seems often--i say only great things re: the entire neurological department. Kind, concerned, amusing, thorough, steady, trustworthy, skilled. Don't let me go on, but i truly love John Steffens and Megan Zorn. They have saved my emotional life several times.

June 12, 2013

very good experience

June 10, 2013

Excellent

June 10, 2013

I wish I felt like someone could give me more answers as to how to make sense of what I am going through with the Dyskinesia and Dystonia.

June 02, 2013

I love Meghan Zorn... excuse me, Doctor Zorn. I can trust her with my life: she cares, she is always (since the day met her) on top of things and she has a genuine concern for my health. She is not only my care provider, but I consider her my friend as well!

May 16, 2013

She was wonderful. She explained everything, and was very kind.

May 13, 2013

Dr. Zorn was specific yet very understandable in explanations and discussion. Thanks!

May 12, 2013

This is a good group

May 09, 2013

PA Zorn gives me the feeling that she is really interested about my well being. She takes the extra time to set and talk about my illness and concerns. A personal touch that I have only received from PA Zorn is how she walks with me too the front office. She is easy to talk to.

April 30, 2013

I feel very comfortable with Meghan, if she doesn't know the answer to a question she looks it up on the computer right then. I feel I can talk to her about anything and it will be non-judgemental & confidential.

March 12, 2013

I have not had better care anywhere.

February 17, 2013

My mental attitude is greatly reinforced from the staff and p.a. and doctor

February 11, 2013

as is the case, we were well attended too.

February 08, 2013

February 05, 2013

I have always hhad very goodexperience with your facility and staff

January 14, 2013

Excellent visit with PA. She offered several solutions for my situation.

December 31, 2012

This was my first experience with the PA.

December 27, 2012

need to see Dr. more than once a year.

December 19, 2012

good experience

November 28, 2012

November 19, 2012

I felt very comfortable

November 16, 2012

Very concerned about how to take my medications.

November 06, 2012

pa Zorn is exceptional. She is very easy to talk to and makes me feel comfortable and important. I have complete trust in both Dr. Thulin and pa Zorn. This isn't always the case, I was so disappointed in the approach of the first Neurologist I saw in Ogden, that I delayed accepting any treatment until I started going to Dr. Thulin about 18 months later.

October 31, 2012

thorough and friendly

October 30, 2012

We love Megan. We have recommended her to others. She has done so much for my husband.

June 29, 2012

We have already seen some improvement in John's condition since the visit. Megan was very helpful and we appreciate her efforts and concern about John.

June 15, 2012

very,good overall.

May 15, 2012

It was a very positive visit. Like my previous visits I felt as if I was talking to a friend who was very concerned about my condition. There was no rush to get me in and out in a set time. I would recommend the PA and the doctor highly - they seem to really care about their patients.

May 10, 2012

I was pleased that the PA (zorn) picked up on my voice problems and gave me some prescriptions for voice therapy.

May 07, 2012

Megan is excellent.

February 13, 2012

She is excellent!

January 19, 2012

Magen does a great job.

Academic Bio

I attended The University of MIchigan and graduated in 1998 with a Bachelors of Arts with emphasis in Psychology. I then went on to work with the underserved population in Salt Lake City, working with local agencies to improve health care access. During this time I made the decision to become a Physician Assistant. I attended the University of Utah and graduated with a Masters in Physician Assistant Studies in 2003. I worked in a private practice Neuology Clinic until making the decision to transition back to the University of Utah in 2007.

She has been with the Movement Disorders Clinic at the University of Utah for the past five years. I primarily work with patients with Parkinson's disease. I see patients with the earliest stages of the disease to the most advanced, including those patients with Deep Brain Stimulation. I truly enjoy taking care of my patients. I try and help them understand their disease and the treatments that are available.
