Biography

Dr. Zinke specializes in medical oncology and hematology with a particular emphasis in breast and lung cancer care. Good communication with his patients is central to his practice philosophy and is often as therapeutic as the medical care he delivers. His patients count on him for honesty, open dialogue and clear expectations throughout their treatment journey. He values that each patient is unique and strives to tailor his approach to their individual needs while helping them make the best decisions for their care.

Outside of work, Dr. Zinke loves spending time with his wife and children. Together, they enjoy hiking, camping, traveling and adventures. Dr. Zinke is also active in church activities.


What Patients Say

Dr. Zinke is knowledgeable and approachable. I appreciate the time he is willing to give when I visit. – Healthgrades

Excellent care and feedback about my cancer. Well versed in history of my disease. Listens to my concerns as always. Very comfortable with him and extremely confident with his judgement. Would highly recommend Dr Zinke. – Healthgrades

Had a good conversation. he answered questions and explained. – Healthgrades

After meeting with 2 oncologists in the Eugene area, I decided it prudent to get a 3rd opinion and made the trip to the Portland market. After meeting with Dr. Zinke for a consultation I immediately knew he was the oncologist that would treat me. He was extremely thorough and explained every step of the way. His approach was different from the other doctors I had met with which meant I would be able to get through chemo a month earlier (pretty nice when you’re looking at 5 months of it). I appreciated and valued his honesty, his explanation of options and his professional opinion. I also valued his empathy and sincere caring for his patients. He helped me get through one of the worst times in my life with a genuine approach. He also shared his great sense of humor appropriately. Two years clear, I would highly recommend Dr. Zinke. The staff was also AMAZING!! – Google
