Chesterfield, MO |
Very knowledgable Dr., good bedside manner. Willing to spend time answering questions. Has a very competent staff to help with a good view of what to expect and about the proceedures of surgery .

Referred to Dr. Zebala for my neck. My appointment was at 2 p.m. and I was not seen until 3:30 p.m. When he finally came in, he asked me questions but chose to talk to the other medical staff in the room and completely ignored my response. He was very condescending towards me. He basically told me my neck was psychological. Prior to this visit I had seen Pain Management and another orthopedic doctor. I am still living with my neck pain. NO HELP from Dr. Zebala! I don't recommend him at all.

Excellent surgeon, best one I have ever had. Have had several previous neck surgery's and Dr Zebala had to do revision on these surgery's. Woke up in recovery with all the shoulder blad, arm & hand pain gone. His nurse Kelli Jo was able to work me in 3 weeks earlier than planned when she had a cancellation from another patient, this was greatly appreciated as I had been in severe pain. She also helped co-ordinate appointments. Dr Zebala is definitely worth the 3 1/2 hr drive for appointments.

I saw three different spine specialists before deciding Dr. Zebala should do my surgery. I'm six months out from the surgery itself. While we still don't know if the fusion has taken yet, I have been relieved of the pains in my lower back, hips, legs and feet. I wont be swinging a softball bat or snowboarding again anytime soon, but I am grateful every morning when I'm able to walk my dog before going back to work pain free and w/ out pain pills. I'll use Dr. Z again if I have complications

I am a previous patient of Dr. Daniel Riew and was very disappointed with Dr. Zebala. I had a fusion and artificial disc surgery in 2009 by Dr Riew and have had moderate pain since 2012 that has increased since then. Dr Zebala seemed as if he did not want to address the problem and put little effort into looking at the information I had brought with me. He suggested an x-ray on my mid back during visit but then sent in his unpleasant assistant and nurse to discuss following up with pain managem
