My expectations were fully met. This has been the least pain I have been in, in about 10 years. The staff and follow up was great. I would have recommended Dr. Zakeri to family and friend. I also give thanks to God for leading me to him for surgery. Thank you Dr. Zakeri!!

Dr. Zakeri was very friendly and thoroughly explained what was wrong with my back and explained why I had lost the feeling in my leg. The day of my surgery he explained the procedure in and out before hand and explained everything that happened during the surgery to both myself and my family. He has always been honest and answered any questions i had.

I was miserable, always in reap pain, even despondent. Now, nearly one year later, after surgery and recovery. I go to bed each night looking forward to the next day. 2017 will likely be the best year of this century for me. Thank you Dr Zakeri and all of your office staff.

Dr. Zakeri is great. GOD bless you Dr. Zakeri.
Arrogant doctor. He talked over me the whole time, would not listen, & argued with me on EVERY single thing I had to say and never explained my condition. I am at a loss of words to describe how awful he treated me. He needs to learn bedside manners & learn how to have empathy towards patients with chronic issues. He is a great surgeon (he assisted in one of my surgeries a couple years ago, but I hadn't met him because it was emergency). Anything outside of the OR, he is disrespectful and rude.
Confrontational, arrogant
