I had a hip replacement by Dr. Zeegen four years ago and a knee replacement just six weeks ago. I trust Dr. Zeegen's expertise and professionalism, his followup care and entire staff. I look forward to being under his care in the future.

I visited Dr. Zeagan's office to get shots into my knees, because they are athletic. Dr. Zeagan is alway very friendly and I barely felt the shots. The best part is, that my knees feel much, much better, and this is just the first of a three series shots. I am looking forward to get the second shot next Wednesday. Thank you Dr. Zeagan.

I had hip replacement surgery. I couldn't have been more pleased with Dr. Zeegen, Valley Presbyterian Hospital, his office staff and the hospital staff. All first rate. I feel so much better and soon will have my other hip replaced also by Dr. Zeegen, of course.

Dr Zeegen is the best. His very nice, listens to you and does not rush you into surgery. His office staff was very accommodating. Office was bright and clean. only waited 15 min before being taken to the back and another 10 min before the doctor came. I would most defensively recommend dr zeegen.

Required X rays of right and left knees and hips. My overall experience was excellent from reception, technicians and medical staff. Everything was explained in detail and I was given several treatment options to consider. I feel confident that Dr. Zeegen and his staff will do everything possible to cure my ailment.
