Doctor Zauner is knowledgeable, takes time to explain the procedure to the family, very patient and compassionate. After the procedure, he looks for the family to let know how everything went. I trusted him since the beginning without doubts. My husband is recovering very well. God bless you always doctor Zauner. You are amazing.

Dr. Zauner and his staff were courteous and caring. My condition was thoroughly explained and when I asked for a delay before peforming a second procedure to see if a lifestyle change would make a difference, he was understanding. He's the goto guy for Neurosugery and Stroke care.

Is simply the best Neurosurgeon this part of the world. Bar none, no one is better than him at what he does. How he only got 4 and 1/2 stars is a tragedy. if I can give him 10 stars I would. He saves lives plain and simple.
