Heather Zeznock, DO Board Certified General Surgeon

Welcome, Dr. Zeznock! Dr. Heather Zeznock, Board Certified General Surgeon, was born and raised in Anchorage, Alaska. As a life-long Alaskan who always New Providers wanted to return to practice medicine in the Land of the Midnight Sun, Heather is familiar with the grit and toughness that Alaskans possess; it’s one of the reasons she loves treating patients in her home state.

Earning her Bachelor of Science in Biology at the University of Alaska, Anchorage, Dr. Zeznock attended medical school at the Pacific Northwest University of Health Sciences in Yakima, Washington. She completed her five years of general surgery residency at St. James Health in Chicago, Illinois, where she honed her skills in minimally invasive and robotic surgical techniques. She enthusiastically returned to Alaska after and has been practicing in the Mat-Su Valley since 2020.

Dr. Zeznock treats what is referred to as “the bread and butter of general surgery;” appendix, gallbladder, hernias, colon cancer, and breast cancer. She enjoys performing a wide variety of surgical cases, aspiring to provide the most advanced and compassionate care to the members of the community.

“The Alaska attitude helps. People from Alaska are just more open, upfront and genuine, and patients really appreciate that; when you can just tell them the facts and tell them what you would recommend for your loved ones,” she said. Focused on growing breast surgery services at Capstone, such as surgical procedures needed after cancer diagnoses, Dr. Zeznock’s dedication to expanding this focus area is one of the many reasons we are excited to welcome her.
