I have had three foot and ankle surgeries with dr zaret. He is very knowledgable and explains exactly what he is going to do. I have had no problems with anything he has done. Would highly recommend to anyone who needs foot care or surgery. The staff at the Lynn rook office could not have been nicer.
Hi Elaine. Dr. Zaret thanks you very much for your kind words and we are so happy to be able to meet your expectations every time you've come to us. Have a wonderful day!

I have numerous foot problems and have had two surgeries both with Dr. Zaret. He is very nice and explains everything in terms you can understand. Office staff is very nice and where I see him at the Lynbrook location it is very clean. Can't say enough would highly recommend.
Dr.Zaret is a brilliant physician with incredible knowledge. He was correct about everything he said. His bedside manner was so empathetic. I could not recommend any other doctor. This doctor is phenomenal. He answered all my repetitive questions with the patience of a saint. He responded to every message I left with extreme promptness. Dr. David Zaret is the best.
