Dr. Zare and his staff are the absolute BEST! I began the process 2 years prior and quit because I did not feel comfortable with the doctor I had seen in Monterey and the experience. I decided to try Dr. Zare and his office and I am so glad I did! What a difference in experiences! The care was phenominal, Dr. Zare is like visiting with a friend, he is caring, thorough and an expert in the field. There is no comparison to the experience I backed out of in Monterey. I am so glad I did this and that Dr. Zare and his office were the ones to assist me! Thank you all!

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.
