Originally from Chicago, Dr Z, as she is called by her patients, practices in Bradenton and Sarasota, FL. A partner in West Coast Podiatry Center, she enjoys helping her patients stay healthy and active. She has previously served as president of the Manasota Podiatric Medical Association.

“I’m honored to lead this great organization and follow in the footsteps of my predecessors. I look forward to embracing the challenge and will work diligently to advocate for podiatrists across the state of Florida,” stated Dr. Zdancewicz.

When not in one of her two offices, she attends patients at three hospitals, and 3three wound centers, she loves spending time with her family and dogs, one of which, Lisette the Frenchie, is an Instagram sensation!
She still finds time for her highest calling, helping her patients, who have given her 5 star ratings.
