    Dr. David Zeman performed surgery on my right shoulder (debridement and repair). Surgery was successful. I cannot talk highly enough of this doctor. He is kind and patient. He provides thorough explanations of the process. On the follow up visits he is genuinely concerned and offers great advice. When I questioned whether I need to continue on ibuprofen, he didn't just say do it - he explained why. Excellent service and care.

    Awesome experience and very quick recovery from shoulder surgery.

    Dr. Zeman performed an extensive repair of my right shoulder, and a few years later replaced my ACL. Never pushed surgery on me at all, explained all my options actually recommended no surgery for my knee, until it went out on me several times. I was off crutches 2 days after my ACL surgery. Highly recommend Dr. Zeman.

    The best in the business. Dr Z reconstructed my ACL, MCL, PCL 25 years ago and just scoped the same knee to clean up some meniscus. Awesome bedside manor and incredible talent.

    I was advised by probably 9/10 of my co-workers to travel the 3 hrs to visit Dr Zeman. It was worth it. Appt making was easy and quick. Diagnosis was educated and spot on. Surgery recovery went well and Dr Zeman kept me informed of what to expect. Strongly recommend.

    Dr Zeman is amazing. Even the therapist he sent me to is awesome. They all know exactly what they are doing, take great care to know how I am doing, explain everything thoroughly. The therapist even said that all Dr Zeman's surgical patients heal efficiently. Definitely recommend him for rotator cuff surgery. Am 6 weeks out from two tears (one off the bone) and my strength is returning, the discomfort is less all the time and I'm ready to get back to my very physical job.

    This is a doctor with a practice that gives doctors a bad reputation. Complete disregard for recovery after surgery. I needed an additional procedure post surgery. The office made no attempt to assist with insurance coverage for the procedure. All they had to do was arrange for the procedure within two months between prescription and the restart of my insurance deductible-they couldn't have cared any less. The doctor himself never intervened. After thousands of dollars, my knee is killing me!

    Dr. Zeman did my knee arthroscopy and I highly recommend him as a surgeon! My post-op and recovery were much easier than I would have expected and 2 years later, my knee is still solid. I won't go to anyone else for Orthopaedic Surgery!
