As a dermatologic surgeon, I care for those who have complex skin cancers, those who need expert facial reconstruction, and those who are troubled by aesthetic issues related to aging and excessive sun damage. I am recognized as a laser, light and device specialist.

Dr. Zachary did MOHS surgery on my eyelid ,cheek and recently above my lip . The cosmetic results were excellent . These were very difficult areas to remove skin cancers . He and his staff did a wonderful job .

I am so grateful to Dr. Zachary. Chemo side effects had left marks and pigmentation on my face. Dr. Z used non-ablative lasers to gently heal me. I actually look better than before I had my chemo!! Dr. Zachary has a great bedside manner -- even just when he was holding my shoulder during the procedure I felt relaxed and knew I was in good hands. Thank you again Dr. Z!

I had Dr. Zachary perform Mohs surgery on my face after three previous procedures (2 conventional, 1 Mohs). He is simply an incredible physician and surgeon! The tumor was fairly large, but the site healed well and is virtually unnoticeable. Dr. Zachary is personable, patient, considerate, and takes considerable pains to explain every alternative and potential consequence. This was absolutely a superior experience and I would recommend Dr. Zachary to anyone.

all procedures seem easy and elegant as this american british born scientist and visionary moves through complicated medical resurfacing and heeling process he alone can accomplish with his students and fellows and kind warm hands of visiting mds from englnd germany and israel . he makes it all seem so easy, he is like sherlock holmes, and his ending to surgery are glorious.

Make that 6! A MD highly referred him. He promised to be "less aggressive" after 1st time scarring me. 2nd trip SCARRED WORSE! Did he just start doing this? Laser not right for permanent makeup removal. I now have BAD scars, irreversible pigment loss. I was better before. Practice on guinea pigs, not pretty former model face. Staff horrible, cant spell name address to send records. NIGHTMARE! VERY ANGRY, DEVASTATED! No $ can pay all us whose faces, psyche are maimed for life. STOP HIM NOW PLEASE

In my opinion, Dr. Zachary discussion and treatment of my consultation was aggressive and financially motivated. He recommended extreme laser treatments for my neck at $15,000+. Fortunately, I sought 2nd & 3rd professional opinions who provided better advice. Since then, I have met 5+ former Dr. Zachary patients who have permanent damage to their necks from the aggressive laser treatments. Caveat emptor.

I would absolutely recommend Dr. Zachary. He is a gentleman, he is kind, he has a sense of humor, he listens to his patients, he never rushes, he explains everything, he is professional, he is respectful of not only his patients but his staff as well. The care and results that I have received under Dr. Zachary and his staff are probably the best I have ever received from a medical professional. Dr. Zachary is the best there is!
