Needed inguinal hernia surgery for quite some time but was scared of having surgery. Dr. Zhang made me feel very comfortable after my office visit. He took time to explain different surgical options. I elected for robotic surgery. My surgical recovery was almost painless and was back to work within week.

I meet Dr Zhang under unfortunate circumstances for a surgical emergency of a colon perforation. He saved my life with emergency surgery. Several months later I had robotic surgery with him again for reversal of my colostomy. He has not only great surgical skills but also great bedside manner and patiently answered all my questions. Highly recommend

Dr. Zhang and his staff Dawn & Ashley are the best...They make you feel that everything is going to be ok and matter how much you call the answer with a smile. Dr Zhang is wonderful and great to talk too and he listen to what is gong on with you. He did my sleeve and even though I'm having issue I have no regrets. I can say with out a doubt I love this doctor and staff.
