About this practice
The practice was founded by Dr. Westerheide in 1945, and Dr. Zamler joined in 1983. Most of our staff have been with Dr. Zamler for more than 20 years! We all have enjoyed serving families of the community over the years, meeting children and grand children of long-time patients.
