Simply put, Dr. Zomorodi has given us the greatest gift by truly being the most gifted surgeon and a master of his craft. We came to him from across the country for a complicated and large Chondrosarcoma skull tumor for my husband. Not only did he, from the first moment we met him, help put us at ease and build tremendous confidence, he dedicated himself with obsessive compulsion to provide the best outcome for my 51 year old, active husband and our family. The 7 hr surgery was miraculous and he was discharged 24 hours later with his hearing, facial nerves, eyesight, vocal chords intact and functioning. From his bedside manner to his superior skill, our family will be grateful to the day we die of the second chance at life we received from Dr. Zomorodi and the Duke Health's team care. I've never written a review like this so near and dear but this man deserves all the praises - we trusted him with our family and you should you.

I am late in leaving this review. Just over a year ago, Dr. Zomorodi performed vascular surgery at the base of my brain. I had 100% trust in him and it was well-placed. He is a calm, gracious, and talented man-- in addition to being an outstanding surgeon. I am indebted to him for giving me back my life.

Dr. Zomorodi treated me for a brain aneurysm through clipping surgery. In our first meeting, I was instantly put at ease by his calm, confident and knowledgeable demeanor. He addressed my many concerns with compassion and kindness. While in the hospital all of the nurses and staff I saw told me not to worry because "Dr Z. is the best". From my experience and my fast recovery just 1 month post-op, I can say with conviction that I completely agree. He is an exceptional surgeon and healer.

Dr. Zomorodi instills confidence with his calmness and proficiency in his practice. I was very aware that I was in the presence of a world-class professional when I met with him. With one look at my MRI, Dr. Zomorodi knew what procedure I needed to correct debilitating hydrocephalus. And the procedure he used was much more simple than the shunt system others had proposed. Dr. Z and his team provide the best care available anywhere.

Dr. Zomorodi has been there for me, and his staff for 10 years. I am grateful I am alive after my brain aneurysm, that was coiled. No matter what my issue was Dr. Zomorodi always made me feel welcome and important. He is a very special man and doctor. R.White
