Learn about Dr. Zhou

Care Philosophy

1.I believe in treating you as if you were a part of my family. 2.I believe in treating the patient, not their imaging films. I will always review and explain the films to you, and will help you determine correlation between what you see and how you feel. 3.I will treat your symptoms in a holistic manner, and not just concentrate in your area of pain. For example, the root cause of some back pains could be leg impairment. Therefore, the treatment should include correcting your leg as well. 4.I will take into consideration the outside stressors that may contribute to your pain. This may include social, psychological, and/or family stress. Your pain may be a manifestation of problems within your environment. 5.I believe strongly in the Hippocratic Oath: Do no harm. I also extend this philosophy to include abstaining from performing unnecessary procedures.

Sicklerville, NJ |
This doctor flat out told my husband he "wasn't a man" due to his severe back injuries. How can you say that to a human being who is already suffering from enough physical and mental pain??
Cherry Hill, NJ |
Dr. Zhou took the time to understand what was going on with me. He reviewed in depth the results of my MRI and X-rays to make sure I understood what he was looking at and what was likely causing my pain. He even took out his models and explained them in detail so I could relate better. I was very hesitant to have anything injected into my body. Dr. Zhou explained my options and I ultimately chose an injection as well as doing exercises he recommended. I have been pain free for a week!
in Pitman, NJ |
Dr. Zhou is a very caring individual. Being a person who has little faith in doctor, I was leery at first. But Dr Zhou has been a blessing. He goes the extra mile to explain your condition & treatment. He listens & answer all questions. Since going to him, there has been a big improvement. Thank you, Dr Zhou. Last but not least, the staff is very helpful & friendly. Thanks all.

One of the best Doctor one will ever have. He is very professional and treat patients really well and actually believe in curing the symptoms not like the other doctors who just want a patient to come back for no reason. ??
in Bridgeport, NJ |
I love Dr.Zhou. I have been his patient for over a year. He is extremely caring and compassionate. He takes as much time as you need to talk and explain things. I would recommend anybody with pain issues to make an appointment with Dr. Zhou. He is the man!
in Lumberton, NJ |
I love Dr Zhou. I refer him whenever someone needs a pain mgmt Dr. He is caring, and extremely knowledgable and excellent at what he does. I had a neuro stimulator for years and he is the only Dr I would trust to do a surgery such as that.
in Mantua, NJ |
Dr. Zhou is the best doctor who has ever treated me for any condition. He treated me as if I was his most-favored patient, took his time to ensure I understood every aspect of my condition, and fully explained what was needed to improve it. He also listened to my concerns very attentively. My time was his time. He is a true gentleman who is extremely knowledgeable in his field, and committed to doing the best for his patient. I am grateful to him for helping me feel so much better.

I like him alot, he's very professional and very caring. I like what he's done for me.
in Riverside NJ |
Dr Zhou is a very compassionate and caring physician. He listens to the patient, takes as much time as needed. His skill is unmatched, after an epidural injection xxx I was pain free for more than 6 months. An excellent physician.
in Paulsboro New Jersey |
It was terrible ! From the beginning he was more focused on the fact that I am a plus size woman rather than assist with my medical concern. He even asked me do I eat a lot? Once I asked about what he was prescribing me he then starts shouting at me and was very rude! Even ripped up the first script he had written out for me. I have never felt so humiliated in my life! I would never recommend or return to this doctor in life! Ty

One month ago today I had my spinal cord stimulator surgery, for my migraines/headaches. That I've had for 17 years, they did not start out as bad but ended up being, daily on a range from 7 to 10.. The day I had surgery I went in with a 7 came home with NO headache, any headaches since have been below a 3 and can turn stimulator up and within 1/2 hour it's gone !!! Dr. Zhou thus far has changed my life, I'm SO, SO looking forward to a pain free future... So Very Thankful I found Dr. Zhou .
