Dr. Ziegenfus was my husband's doctor for many years. I believe he saved Jeff's life more than once. He and Jeff became "buddies" as his office usually gave Jeff the last appointment of the day so Jeff and Zig could talk a while. Two stories: While in great kidney pain, I took Jeff to our local hospital about 3 a.m. and urged them to call Dr. Zig. They did. The next thing I knew, a nurse told me I had a call in the ER. No one knew we were there!! Dr. Zig was on the phone. He said, "I just called an ambulance to get him out of that place. They'll take him to Riddle." . Never had that happen before. He knew what was best for Jeff. Another time, Jeff was so ill that I couldn't get him out of the car. The doctor came out to the parking lot at Riddle and held/assisted Jeff as he walked him to the ER. Jeff and I had the highest regard for Dr. Zig. He was not only a terrific doctor, but a wonderfully compassionate human being. Sadly, my husband passed away 10 days before Dr. Zig's passing. I hope they are having a great chat in heaven.
