I never got a visit. I'm 82 years old and Dr. Zehr won't treat ant patient older than 80. I happen to be in excellent physical state except for a hip problem. That arbitrary restriction is ridiculous in an era of extended longevity

After stressing that I only wanted a consultation and that I had current x-rays I scheduled a consult with Dr. Zehr in my search for a Naples area doc for knee replacement surgery. When I arrived for the appointment, the receptionist took the x-rays and I was called back. I was immediately led to the x-ray room and was told that Dr. Zehr would only see me if I had some more x-rays taken, that the copies I had brought were only two views and that he required four views if I were to be seen. As a retired Doctor of Chiropractic with over 35 years in practice and after prior consults with a Naples orthopod several months ago and five different Ohio orthopods over the past several years, I can assure Dr. Zehr that weight-bearing AP and Lateral views are all that are needed for the questions that I had. Based upon my waste of time at his office, I am embarrassed that any doctor could care so little for any patient's health as to attempt to unnecessarily expose a patient to unneeded radiation

Had Dr. Zehr do my hip surgery 2 years ago and all went well. Started having pain in hip and went to see him. Took x-ray in office and all looked good so was going to go for MRI. Place he sent me to wouldn't do MRI because of paperwork problem. He had me get blood work done and haven't heard diddly from him since. Really?

9 years ago I needed my right hip replaced. After careful research I selected Dr. Robert Zehr. His state of the art anterior surgical process was important, but so was the obvious care provided my Dr. Zehr and his staff; both medical professionals and office support staff. Everything was easy, clearly explained, and professional handled. My experience was so positive, that this past September, when my left hip failed, I returned to have Dr. Zehr and his staff perform the surgery. Again, nothing but professionalism and outstanding medical care. I can not say enough!

I am so glad I found Dr Zehr He uses the anterior method for hip replacements. Once educated about this method it was a no brained. He and his staff was knowledgeable and answered all of my questions. The surgery went great and I was back walking within no time. No restriction on what I can do and feel like I did when walked years ago. Back to normal.

I just finished rehabilitation for my second hip surgery by Dr. Zehr, and it was every bit as successful as the first hip surgery he performed for me two years ago. This surgeon is truly outstanding. A consummate professional, Dr. Zehr and his staff are caring, sensitive and extremely well organized. I recommend him without any reservation.

Had TRHR with Dr. Zehr on May 8, 2019 at Seaside Surgical Center. Dr. Zehr came highly recommended and he did not disappoint. From the first visit to his office to be evaluated to the surgery everything was wonderful. His staff both at his office and at the surgical center were kind, compassionate and professional. Four hours after surgery I walked up the 15 steps to my condo with a cane. 3 days after surgery I was cane free. Slept on the surgical side 2 days after surgery. In the pool 2 weeks after surgery. Visiting nurse and PT therapists at home were the best. I was supposed to have the surgery in New York in December and it was cancelled due to an infection. It was to be posterior. I believe everything happens for a reason. Thank you Dr. Zhr and staff for giving me my life back.

I recommend Dr. Zehr whole heartedly. I am a very active 69 year old. When I returned to the tennis courts my friends were amazed at how fast I returned. Who did your surgery was the first question I got. I was happy to say I had my surgery right here in Naples performed by Dr Zehr and his well oiled team at the office. The experience was amazing and the results speak for themselves. If you are diligent and focused on your PT the first six weeks your friends will be asking you the same questions I continue to get 9 weeks post op. and your answer will be the same. Dr Zehr did my surgery and the results speak louder than words.

I had total hip replacement surgery performed by Dr. Zehr. It was done at his surgery center and I was home in less than four hours. I could get around easily with a walker from day 1 and within two weeks, I was walking pain free two miles per day. The staff at the office are helpful and kind and all of my questions were answered. I look forward to getting back to tennis and golf on a pain free basis.
