Philosophy of Care

Dr. Zhou would like to serve her patients by performing a quick, comfortable, and reliable method of fine needle aspiration, and by providing more accurate state-of-the-art diagnosis.

Clinical Interests

Dr. Zhou has ten years of experience working with national leaders in Fine Needle Aspiration (FNA). She has expertise in sampling virtually any superficial lump which can be felt or visualized on ultrasound, which often eliminates the need for surgical biopsy.
