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.
