What People Say About Dr. Joseph Zocco, MD
Reply
Dr. Zocco performed a quad bypass on me in 1998. I have often thought of meeting and thanking him for his excellent work. I am happy to write that every action connected to my surgery was 5 star and my life and health since the operation has been great. I have talked about Dr. Zocco to my family and friends over the years and said that he is the "go to" surgeon for cardiac surgery. His talk to me prior to surgery calmed any fears that I had experienced when I found out what I faced.
