A native of Memphis, Tennessee, Dr. Zumstein grew up in Ariton, a small town in southeast Alabama, where her father was the town’s only physician. Among her fondest childhood memories includes accompanying her Dad on house calls and Saturday night hospital rounds, which also doubled as family outings. After completing residency training in Houston, Texas, Dr. Zumstein worked at a large multispecialty clinic caring for children from many different ethnic backgrounds. During her time as a Texan she was privileged to participate in several overseas medical missions trips, became a Houston Rockets and Astros fan, and most importantly, met her husband.
In late 2001, closer proximity to family drew Dr. Zumstein home to Alabama, where she worked solo in medically underserved Russell County. Dr. Zumstein considers this five-year commitment among the most challenging but rewarding experiences of her career. Her husband and she eventually settled on Birmingham to call our home at which time she joined Simon-Williamson Clinic.
Dr. Zumstein’ss favorite part of working at Simon-Williamson Clinic is having the opportunity to provide care for children from all walks of life, developing relationships with them and their families as they grow, and being among a group of committed physicians who feel the same. In her free time, she enjoys spending time with her husband, dogs and cat, family and friends, church, cooking, biking, and working in the yard.
