Vicki Zucker

“Starting my early career as a PA in New York I found my passion for caring for others. Being able to provide not only support through medicine and surgery to my patients, I was there for them emotionally and spiritually. Here at Newport Cardiac and Thoracic Surgery, I am surrounded by a team that will provide endless care to our patients. The PA I am today was molded from the connections I made with my patients. I am thankful for this opportunity to be able to move to Newport Beach California and fit right in with a team that has the same passion as me.”
