Dr Zalucki is a surgeon who puts the patient first!!! He was so well prepared and articulate for the pre-op discussion, that my wife and I left feeling confident and assured for what lay ahead. We had so few questions to ask because he covered almost every concern we thought of before hand. His staff will give you a read-ahead: READ IT and FOLLOW IT as it's designed to make recovery much MUCH quicker and easier. (It's easy to read - you don't need an MD education to understand it.) He was so kind on the day of surgery; he and a number of his team walked aside of me as I was taken from prep to the surgery room. His post-op follow-up in the hospital room was consistent with everything you've read; he was clear, articulate, and ensured we understood the results and way-ahead. And most of all, he was sincerely KIND. I was released within 2 days of the surgery. Amazing!!! His follow-up appointments were equally great. If you need a surgery - he's your Doctor!!!

I was referred to Dr. Zalucki by my primary doctor, I could not have been happier. Dr. Zalucki is very thorough, very hands on throughout the entire process. He listens to any questions you or your family may present. I was kept well informed my surgery and recovery is going very well. I urge anyone in need to please see Dr. Zalucki, "you will not regret it"! I can not thank him and his staff enough for their help. Surgery July 23, 2019

Had an appointment scheduled with Dr. Zalucki for a second opinion regarding an operation for diverticulitis. However the day before, I was an emergency admission to the hospital by my primary physician for an attack. When Dr. Zalucki learned this, he visited me early the next day in the hospital. He evaluated me and immediately took over my treatment. He later scheduled minimally invasive surgery that has proven very effective in alleviating my condition. He is an excellent, patient communicato

Dr. Zalucki is very thorough. He makes sure you NEED surgery by exploring all option first. In my case I did need the surgery. His follow up was genuine and he really cares for his patients. I would highly recommend.

My experience has been excellent from my initial consult to include my recent colonoscopy. Dr. Zalucki is very thorough and professional. His office reminded me when it was time for my colonoscopy, and while I had anxiety, the experience was very good.
