Dr. Ziu was my brain surgeon for a tumor removal in mu 4th ventricle back in September 2016. He was the best neurosurgeon I had worked with in the 3 years since my diagnosis after to moving to Texas from California. He took excellent care of me and my post surgical outcome was fantastic and better than I could have ever expected. I would definitely recommend him.
