I had surgery on my knees and Dr. Zeman has helped with my pain management post surgery. I am able to continue with my daily living activities because of Dr. Zeman's great care in managing my pain. Dr. Zeman listens, spends the time needed with his patients to understand what his patient is going through pre/post surgery. The staff is very kind, caring and sensitive to patients needs.

I couldn't have any better care than what I have received from Dr. Zeman. He has done surgery on my shoulder and my hand. My elbow will be nex.t. He is straight forward and honest with his explanations. He has a great personality and sense of humor. I trust him completely with my care. I feel so fortunate to have found him.

Saw me right away after an injury without an appointment. The entire practice is very new, clean and well-equipped. I couldn't have asked for a more complete examination and review with the doctor. This is a well-experienced, capable, caring clinician I would have no issues with recommending or visiting again.

Dr Zeman did both my rotator cuff surgeries and I could not be happier. He explained the process to me, did exactly what he said, told me what to expect and the results have been excellent. He is not a touchy feelie Doctor but he is an honest skilled surgeon. I highly recommend him!
