Dr. Zinar is not available to his patients. He did not make time to see my elderly mother and did not listen to her concerns. He passes off his duties to physician assistants and does not treat older people the same as others. Negative stars if I could.

I had a mountain biking accident and had multiple fractures in both wrists. Luckily Dr Zinar was coming in the next morning to operate at Torrance Memorial and I was able to get on his schedule. I am having a good recovery. He and his office has been great with their care and service along with my disability paperwork. I really appreciate all their help in this traumatic period for me so I can get back to my life and my job. Thank you again !

Dr. Zinar is hands down the best trauma/pelvis surgeon around! Besides my own complicated surgery, I know four other accident victims who owe their lives to him! It was doubtful I would survive, let alone every walk again, but I am doing both, thanks to Dr. Zinar!
