I was referred to Dr. Zare by another doctor that I respect very much. Dr. Zare was very thoughtful when working with me to get my appendix removed. I had some unusual circumstances, and some overseas travel to consider. Now that the procedure is done, everything went exactly to plan, and I am looking forward to returning to full physical activity.

Dr. Zare has given me my life back. I had gastric sleeve surgery July 11, 2017 and I feel amazing already. His office staff is wonderful. It has been such a pleasure working with them.

Dr. Marc Zare truly represents the Hippocratic Oath at its best. Dr. Marc, as I so dearly call him now, found two right-sided hernias, which more than 20 previous specialists and surgeons overlooked in nearly four years of severe suffering. He listened, he heard, he did a thorough exam, he diagnosed, he operated, and he healed me. My husband and I will be forever grateful.
