Patient Comments (1)
in Royal Oak, MI |
Can't say enough good things about Dr. Zakalik. I had a L5-S1 Microdiscectomy in June 2016 by Dr. Z for a herniated disc causing partial foot drop. I had a lot of anxiety about back surgery given all the horror stories you hear and sought multiple opinions prior to moving forward with surgery after 2+ months of PT and little improvement. After meeting with Dr. Z I had full confidence my surgery would be successful with no complications and it was. He's down to earth with a sense of humor too.
