What People Say About Dr. James Zaslavsky, DO

I went through months of constant shooting pains down my arm. I couldn't run, exercise, or sleep. Total Misery! I had failed to improve with physical therapy, injections, and meds. I saw Dr. Z and immediately felt comfortable and safe with moving forward with a disc replacement. He explained how I was a great candidate to replace the disc instead of fuse it and in 4 weeks I was back in my sneakers going for a run. WINNER!!! Thanks Dr. Z and team.

Words can not describe my appreciation for Dr. Z. and his staff. Dr. Z. and his staff turned a living nightmare into a happy ending. My work injury to my cervical spine left me feeling non stop pain which resulted in a feeling of hopeless. The moment I met Dr. Z I felt at ease. From start to finish he took his time at every appointment and even messaged me personally after my surgery. I couldn’t have asked for a better experience. Simply put Dr. Z. is a class act and I can’t thank him enough!

I can not believe that I did not go to Dr. Z sooner! After multiple doctors told me that I would need surgery for my cervical spine, Dr. Z found a better solution with the right combination of Physical Therapy, traction, and nerve medication. It helped me recover from the terrible shooting pain in my arm. His experience as a physical therapist is invaluable, as he can see more than 1 angle to treat. I am so grateful to him, and his entire team, who were all top notch people! I would give a 10!

I had had neck pain for a very long time. It was something that I lived with and tolerated but then I started having weakness in both of my hands. I went to Dr. Z. He reviewed my records to ensure that I had tried everything non operatively for my problem. He then proceeded to replace two discs in my cervical spine. My hands felt strong again and my neck pain improved as well. He and his team explained everything clearly, I felt very comfortable with them throughout the entire process.

The entire team is professional, predictive, and expert. Their guidance throughout the process before surgery, after identifying surgery as the right step, and Dr Zaslavsky’s skill performing it were incredible. Highly recommend the entire team.

Severe neck and arm pain were ruining my life. Multiple surgeons told me I needed a cervical fusion. I am an avid runner and a fusion in my neck would mean being away from my passion for at least four months. Dr. Z explained the benefits of total disc replacement and how I could be back running in just a short period of time. After the procedure by him I was back to jogging on the treadmill in four weeks. My neck and arm pain were gone immediately. I am very grateful to him and his staff.

I saw Dr Z after 4 months of severe neck and arm pain. I went from a very active lifestyle to barely able to work. I tried many treatments and medications, none worked. A surgeon wanted to put plates and screws in my cervical spine. Luckily, I had a second opinion with Dr. Z. He gave me a specific PT program with flexibility exercises and cervical traction, as well as nerve medicine which really helped. Thanks to Dr. Z, I was back to my normal life in 3 months without having to have surgery.

My first visit with Dr. Z left me impressed and relaxed with my decision to have the surgery I had been putting off. The whole process has been great, I feel better than I've felt in years. Great job, great staff!

When I came to First State, I was not walking without support (an elbow of someone, sliding along the wall, etc.). The care I've rec'd since my 1st visit has been exceptional. The staff is so caring and supportive. Everyone is so understanding of my needs. I will definitely recommend First State to others.

I developed neck pain that progressed to shooting pain down my arm. I had difficulty sleeping,driving,exercising,and holding my phone. I had surgery with Dr. Z and in a shortly after regained all my functional abilities. I was back in the gym after 6 weeks post surgery. Dr. Z and his staff have a vast amount of expertise and experience dealing with neck problems and always made surgery the very last option and my care and comfort their foremost concern. My recovery was much quicker than expected

Was sharing with a co-worker the surgery I had done at Christiana Care with Dr James Zaslavsky, he was new to the team at Christiana Care, but came recommended by previous patient who I was able to contact in NJ, this pt was young enough that he did not want his spine/cervical fused. Under Dr Zaslavsky's care the surgery was high risk, and yet the pt came through it and was till able to participate in motor-cross which he enjoyed. Anyway, getting back to my surgery, he was the best qualified

Dr. Zaslavsky is a wonderful physician that is truly knowledgeable in his field. I have been treating with him for a while now. Since my treatment begin, I have made great progress and was able to return to work. Dr. Zaslavsky takes his time with you, "really listens" to your concerns; he explains treatment in full detail and has a professional yet caring style that you don't see in many Doctors. I highly recommend Dr. James Zaslavsky and I am so Thankful he is my Physician.

My injury was a herniated disc in my cervical spine. I was in constant pain with numbness in my arm and neck. Sleeping was a challenge. I enjoy going to the gym. However, that became impossible. I chose Dr. Zaslavsky through referrals from friends. I followed up to find he had an outstanding reputation and a great deal of experience with treating cervical spine injuries. His track record of success was excellent. I couldn't believe how much better I felt right after surgery.

I had a herniated disc in the cervical spine that needed surgery. I had excruciating neck/arm pain, numbness in my arm; couldn't sleep, sit, drive. I chose Dr. Z for his reputation, experience with cerivcal spine surgery, and very low complication rate. I felt safe in his care. After surgery, the pain was better almost immediately. My recovery was much shorter than expected and I recovered functions I thought were lost forever. Dr. Z and his team are amazing. Thanks for giving me my life back.
