Steven W. Zonner, D.O.

Concussion Program Director

Washington Hospital

Dr. Steven Zonner is board certified by the American Osteopathic Board of Family Practice and has over 30 years of experience in the fields of primary care, occupational and sports medicine. In his family medicine practice with Washington Township Medical Foundation, Dr. Zonner promotes physical fitness to prevent disease and assists his patients to make educated decisions with regard to their health care. As an expert on concussions, Dr. Zonner currently serves as the Concussion Program Director of the Tri-Valley and Golden State Elite Youth Ice Hockey Programs in Dublin, CA, as well as Medical Consultant for the Concussion Committee of the California Amateur Hockey Association.

Dr. Zonner completed the majority of his medical training in Chicago starting with his Doctor of Osteopathic Medicine degree (DO) from the Chicago College of Osteopathic Medicine. After finishing his Family Medicine internship and residency at Botsford General Hospital in Michigan, he returned to Chicago to complete his primary care sports medicine fellowship at Rush-Presbyterian-St. Luke’s Medical Center. In 1990, he went on to become the head team physician for Arizona State University and was invited to work at the US Olympic Training Center in Colorado Springs.

“My philosophy is to provide the same quality and coordination of medical care that I would provide to my own family and friends. Too often in today’s medical world, physicians do not have the time to explain the details of your care nor do they have the time to speak with other providers involved. I will work with other members of your medical care team (e.g., radiologists, physical therapists, specialists, chiropractors) to coordinate your care and provide optimal treatment.”
