I was nervous about my basal cell removal and he distracted me with kindness and humor! He's a very nice man and a wonderful listener.

Don't bother making an appointment. They just called me to cancel mine because the Dr. had "another appointment". We have had this appointment scheduled for weeks. Incredibly unaccommodating over the phone when attempting to reschedule. There are other doctors. This was an urgent appointment that required surgery for me. Unbelievably offensive. I have notified my PCP and HCP not to recommend to others in my network.

I love Dr. Z! I'm a breast cancer patient. I had 2 tumors in 1 breast, but the other breast was fine. For various reasons, I decided against a bilateral mastectomy but my concern was..would the reconstructed breast look enough like the healthy breast? I make my living as an actress and model, so symmetry was crucial. Dr. Z totally understood about all of this, and was even more concerned about what I would look like than I was! The results are amazing!! I cannot say enough good things!!!

He is an amazing doctor! Very caring about his patients and full of compassion. His work is the best around would use him and no one else. I love the work he has done on me after breast cancer surgery. Everyone should use him.He calls you back instantly after hours if you have a problem. He has even met me after hours on a weekend at his office. He answers my questions whenever i need more information.

I was referred to Dr. Zavitsanos by my dermatologist. I needed 2 procedures done...one on my foot and one on my arm. He completed both in less than half an hour, with absolutely no pain...during or after the procedures!!! During the procedure, we talked about football which made me extra comfortable. A week later, I am fully recovered. His staff was amazing also. I highly recommend Dr. Zavitsanos!

I am pleased beyond my expectations with the results of breast reconstruction created by Dr.Zavitsanos. I had a 29 year old implant following a mastectomy which I learned from an MRI was leaking silicone. Dr. Z. actually called the radiologist to clarify these findings and I was so impressed that he took the time to do this. When he first met with me he clearly laid out my options without pressuring me. He and his skilled staff have helped me through every step of this transformative process.
