Dr. Zaltz figure out what was causing my pain right away, after I had spent 2 1/2 years and visited 18 doctors. He scheduled my surgery right away and took great care of me!

I have been a patient of Dr. Zaltz for about 10 years. Beside his technical expertise his bedside manner is second to no one. I find him personable, practical and someone who truly cares about his patients.
