Biography

Dr. Tony Zink was raised in Hutchinson KS and attended college at Texas Christian University from 1983-1987.  He attended the University of Kansas participating in the Medical Scientist Training Program and obtained his MD and PhD (in Pharmacology) graduating in 1993.  He completed internship and residency in Internal Medicine at Emory University Hospitals in Atlanta, Georgia and then finished his cardiology training and post-doctoral research at the University of Iowa Medical Center in Iowa City.  He remains board-certified in Internal Medicine, Cardiology and Cardiac Echocardiography.  His primary clinical interests are in the general  cardiology, valvular heart disease, diseases of the aorta and peripheral vascular disease.  He joined the staff at Saint Luke's South Hospital in 1999.  He believes his, "responsibility to patients, friends and family is to explain the multitude of options, risk and benefits of cardiac and vascular therapies in terms they can understand and let the patient decide what is in their best interest."
