Awful! I Had carpel tunnel syndrome he did the surgery and did it incorrectly according to my neurologist. He did not cut in the correct area so I now have to have surgery again several years later! And whoever the anesthesiologist was he was horrible also because I woke up during surgery everyone’s nightmare to wake up from surgery is happening

When I needed a doctor for my "trigger finger", Dr. Zornitzer was recommended highly by two different people. Dr. Zornitzer's demeanor put me at ease as he carefully explained what was wrong with my finger and what needed to be done. He took time in answering all my questions and made sure that I understood all aspects of my procedure. I would recommend him to anyone who experiences hand problems.

HORRIBLE EXP - Dr. Zornitzer tried to rip in more ways than one. He was extremely pushy in getting us into surgery in next 8 hrs during the first visit, citing personal business. When he learnt that we were firm on seeking second opinion, he made us do unnecessary treatment and charged $5000 for it. Treatment caused incredible pain during procedure and for many days after treatment. Tried calling doctor but he would not talk and office disregards. Poor hygiene too. Don't get carried by reviews.

Went to Dr. Zornitzer for a cyst removal in my hand and I am so glad that I did. In the doctor's office, he explains everything clearly and honestly. Once it's time for surgery he does what he sets out to do. (Hopefully I do not need to, but) I would definitely seek him out again and recommend him to anyone.

I was referred to Dr. Zornitzer by another Doctor. I knew the minute he walked into the exam room that he had a great bedside manner. I had Carpal Tunnel surgery 6 weeks ago and feel much better, He did a beautiful job stitching me up. The staff is great and we joke around. I would definitely visit him again and highly recommend him. Great Doctor!! Great Guy!!

I highly recommend Dr, Zornitzer. From day one of my first visit to my last visit, he was caring, concerned, easy to talk with, and always willing to explain each step of the process. Most important, he did an amazing job on my hand. I had surgery to fix the metacarpel and a second surgery to remove the pin. Both surgeries results were perfect and he treated me with the highest forms of professionalism. My healing process was fast as possible and my hand is back to normal.

Dr. Z was able to fit me in with no delay after my trip to the ER. I'm grateful and pleased how well Dr. Z fixed my broken hand! My surgery was smooth and I now have complete movement and strength back with no complications.

I have just been treated for the second time by Dr. Zornitzer - both experiences being wonderful. I healed completely both times (broken thumb and fractured wrist). His professionalism, as well as humanism, were both clearly evident. I felt at ease with his approach, and educated throughout the process....two solid "thumbs up"" (pun intended). Also, Jackie on his staff was excellent!

Very professional. He listened to my input and what I had to say without cutting me off. Made a diagnosis based on my comments, his exam and experience. Explained everything clearly and addressed all my questions. If I did not have confidence in my exams after leaving the office I would not have proceeded with several surgeries. Seems like a nice guy as well

I suffered a torn bicep on a Sunday evening and Dr. Zornitzer made time to see me the next day without an existing appointment. He genuinely cared about my condition and my recovery. He clearly explained everything I needed to know to prepare for the surgery and the recovery time afterwards. I highly recommend him.

Dr. Zornitzer is an amazingly skilled, caring and compassionate surgeon. His staff is professional and courteous. I was referred to him by my GP. I have been fortunate to have two outstanding medical professionals in my corner. Dr. Zornitzer calmed my fears for a surgical procedure that was necessary. The procedure was performed at the Short Hills Surgical Center whose staff were as comforting and professional as Dr. Zornitzer's staff. I would highly recommend his team.

Dr. Zornitzer repaired my severely fractured left wrist sustained from a fall. Dr. Zornitzer discussed with me the surgical procedure necessary to repair the multiple fractures, which included metal plates and screws. My wrist was fully functional with a full range of motion 4 months post surgery. I received the highest level of care and am grateful for a successful procedure.

I take a lot of great pride and spend a lot of energy being a throwing athlete. From the day that I met him Dr. Zornitzer was very easy to talk to and he was able to remove my concerns and doubts of returning to athletics. When I first had nerve issues I was misdiagnosed a few times by several different doctors until I found Dr. Zornitzer. Without difficulty, Dr. Zornitzer was able to give an accurate diagnosis and perform my surgery relocating my ulnar nerve without any problems or hiccups.
