I Would have appreciated clearer information on immediate post op procedures. I was told I would probably go home the same day, but wa told pre op I would be spending the night. A little confusing. Made my family think that there was something wrong with the surgery. Post op course went smoothly. Overall, I am so very Satisfied.

Dr. Zakeri is a very kind and very skilled surgeon. He has done my back surgery and my husband (very involved) back and neck surgeries, all with good outcomes. He gives you the information you need straight, not sugar coated. I would recommend him to anyone without hesitation.

Dr. Zakeri is an amazingly skilled surgeon. I was extremely pleased with the results of my surgery. I am relieved of extreme pain and limited movement. Something I think is equally important is the doctor's kind, funny, calm, and open aspect. That as much as anything. Contributed to our success. I also like the doctor's socks!

I have been extremely happy with the care I received from Dr. Zakeri and his staff. My lumbar spine fusion was/is a complete success with no more pain and numbness. Phone calls were answered promptly and appropriate follow up was done in a timely manner. I highly recommend Dr. Zakeri and have already made a few referrals to his office. Thank you for the excellent care!

We would--and have--recommended Dr. Zakeri without reservation. He is outstanding in every respect. He is an outstanding surgeon; very experienced and up-to-date with cutting edge technology and procedures. His manner is very approachable and he excels at explaining everything before and after surgery. He is scrupulous and careful with follow-up visits. Earns five stars easily.
