I have four children and wouldn’t dream of taking them anywhere else! My two oldest kids have had a tonsillectomy and adenoidectomy, my third has had THREE sets of tubes and also just had t&a last week, and my youngest has had one set of tubes. He has also done sinus surgery on me and treated my husband for some throat issues due to reflux. We have been patients for almost 10 years. We have temporarily moved to the Dallas area for my husband’s job and we STILL drive to Austin to see Dr. Zapalac.

sitting in the reception area for an hour past my appointment with no communication from receptionist as to how long it it will take, especially after getting here 15 early is quite annoying. and there are only three people here with several doctors. they did manage to get my co-pay collected on time though. i'm out of here. i'll call credit card company to reverse chaco-pay charge.

Dr. Zapalack just done surgery on our son to remove tonsils and adenoids. He needed the surgery pretty quickly because he was having obstructive sleep apnea.He got us in for surgery within a week.His office staff is very nice. He talked with us right before surgery and right after answering all of the questions we had. He called to check on our son when we got home. Then I had a question the next day and I was able to speak with the Doctor again. Great experience. Totally recommend Dr.Zapalac.

He's not going to be your best friend or sugar coat things....he hears you out and does a thorough analysis. He has some quirk to him but the guy will help you and make referrals for additional help outside of his expertise. If you're easily offended or want someone to hold your hand he might not be for you.

I had surgery to remove a benign tumor on my parotid gland. He correctly diagnosed it, recommended treatment, and promptly scheduled surgery at my request. He thoroughly explained the condition, the risks and the process in a reassuring manner. I received test results immediately from the doctor personally. The surgery required a six inch incision on my face/neck which is barely visible after only a few weeks. He set me at ease throughout the process. I am extremely happy with the results.

Great bedside manner, listens to concerns, not pushy yet firm in what he thinks is best. Performed ear tube surgery on our 8 month old daughter.
