I haven’t had surgery with dr. Zarnegar yet, but my consultation was great and put me at ease. He was very willing to make a special accommodation with my surgery in order to make it “scarless”. This creates more work for him, and I so appreciate how he puts the patients desires first. Looking forward to my surgery and feel I’m in good hands.

Fantastic my daughter was getting married I was so sick frail and thin . I was so upset that I wouldn’t be able to walk her down the aisle . I went everywhere for help every surgeon said surgery we have to remove your esophagus. We found dr zarnegar right before the wedding he said you will walk her down the aisle and keep your esophagus. he did a procedure that went excellent that was in 2012 . Not only did I walk her down the aisle it’s 2019 I have 2 beautiful grandchildren not only am I blessed to see my grandchildren and be a grandfather I still have my esophagus and it’s 2019 . I recently had a checkup with Dr. Z he is so positive and through and the whole staff took great care and treated me like family . I’m Very blessed and thankful Gerard from Brooklyn.

Dr Zarnegar was very pleasant and professional. He took his time to answer my questions. He explained to me about my medication and showed me a image of my thyroid that he was looking at. I highly recommend him to anyone needing his expertise.

I had surgery for a recurring hernia (a different surgeon the first time). I could not have received better care or had a better patient experience. Dr, Zarnegar was great throughout, as was Dana Whitehalll; all of the other staff I interacted with were helpful and professional.

Dr. Zarnegar has all of the attributes one could want in a surgeon. He is intelligent and compassionate; he is thorough, he listens to your concerns and can think outside the box; he is very professional and at the same time has a good sense of humor. I should also add that he has a great staff. Dana and Joselyn are efficient and kind. They really are assets to this amazing practice.

Dr. Rasa Zarnegar is probably the nicest doctor I have ever met. He is so easy to talk to and seems like he has all the time in the world. I had acid reflux surgery performed by him this past November. Everything went very smoothly and he was readily available to talk to before and after surgery. Sometimes the top doctor in the field ends ups being the nicest. I recommend Dr. Z without any hesitation.

Dr. zarnegar is an excellent surgeon. Very smart and makes all the post op visits worth while. You are not passed off to a NP. He makes the effort to speak and see you personally to each visit. That was huge for me. Excellent experience.

Best General surgeon in the city. Compassionate and very knowledgeable and listens to anything I have to say. Performed a hernia operation on me eight years ago and still going strong. Now I need a new hernia repaired and I’m happy to go back.
