At the age of 9, Dr. Zeigler was burned over 85% of his body in a flash fire.  His desire to become a surgeon was due in large part to the constant contact he had with physicians during the many years of his extended recovery.  Dr. “Z” as he is called, loves Valdosta because it’s close to everything. He enjoys vacations to New York City for world-class salsa and chips.
