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!

I had back pain for about 3 years. I came to see Dr. Zakeri after I had many steroid injections but it was not working. The MRI results showed I had a problem at L4-L5. Dr. Zakeri did the surgery to fix it and now my back pain is gone. He did an excellent job. I would recommend him to the patients who is having back problems.
