    I think Dr Zakeri did an excellent job with me and my surgery. No pain since the day after surgery. Today I was happy that he took the time to listen to me as I went thru the list I brought to the office of questions. Wonderful surgeon.

    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
