Zachary is a medical provider at Inspire Medical. He earned his bachelor’s degree at the University of Dayton and his master’s degree in Physician Assistant at Chatham University. He began his career in trauma surgery at the University of Florida and moved to Nashville to work in trauma orthopedics. He realized that while he enjoyed caring for sick and injured people, this was not his passion for medicine. Having struggled with weight since adolescent, he knows firsthand the difficulties of losing weight. It wasn’t until having a wellness assignment during graduate school that his motivation to change his lifestyle began. His passion for wellness and weight loss drives him to do everything he can to help his patients optimize their health and be the best versions of themselves.

What Patients Say

"I have been going to Inspire for over a year now & I really love it! I haven't felt as good as I do right now for a very long time. I have a clear mind and do not have to convince my body to get out of bed each morning.. losing weight and feeling great."

Krysten L.

"Inspire Medical has been wonderful! They have helped me with my fatigue and other issues that I have been having. It's so great to wake up and have the energy to do all the things I love to do!"

Erica M.

"I was skeptical that the treatment would do the things it was touted to do. I have to say that I was SUPER surprised! I got all the benefits promoted, and the largest benefit I received I didn’t know was possible: increased self esteem!"

Laurie M.

"I’ve always struggled to lose weight. Trying different diets and never feeling good. However, that’s all changed since I’ve started going to inspire medical. Now that I have that where it should be, my energy levels are amazing. I actually want to work out and eat well because I feel good. The weight loss program helped me lose 20 pounds and get to weight where I finally feel good."
