Patient Comments (2)

Very knowledgeable, thorough and generally a nice guy. My only complaint is that I've waited in a patient room for over 45 minutes 2 of the last 3 visits. Thank goodness for smartphones to keep myself occupied. Worth the wait though as my knee now feels better than it has in years!

Thank you for your comments KF. I apologize for the long wait times you experienced. I spend as much time with each patient as they need and that causes me to run behind often. I am also trying to get more efficient with respect to this, but not if it compromises time education and helping my patients.

Dr. Zooker took the time to help me find conservative and healthy ways to try to resolve my issues with my knee. His patience guided me to the correct solution and a great outcome.

Thank you for your kind comments. As a surgeon, I do enjoy operating, but not before we have exhausted conservative treatments. Understanding your options and the risks and benefits of conservative and more aggressive care is an important part of the time I spend with each patient. Glad to see you are happy with your experience and outcome.
