I was referred to Dr. Zaki after my prostate biopsy came back cancerous. He was very good at explaining my options with Devinci Surgery for prostate removal. He was great with my hospital stay and my care after surgery. I just had a office visit with Dr. Zaki 16 months after surgery. I could not be more pleased with his care. Any man facing prostate cancer in the Dayton Ohio area should contact Dr. Zaki. Gary Petrick

My experiences have been excellent. I feel very confident in his ability to diagnose my issues and and to respond accordingly. Dr. Zaki diagnosed my problem correctly and scheduled my surgery immediately. Dr. Zaki did not hesitate to refer me to a specialist (Dr. Foster) in Indianapolis after surgery for his input on my condition.
in Dayton, OH |
Dr. Zaki performed two surgeries on me--a TURP (Trans urethral Re-sectioning of the Prostate) and insertion of a Medtronics device (nerve stimulator) to help empty my large bladder more efficiently. DR. Zaki is a hard-working, patient-oriented surgeon . . . probably one of the best in our area. My experiences with him were all beneficial, and I would recommend him AND HIS WONDERFUL STAFF to anyone.
in Xenia, OH |
I recently had kidney cancer surgery. Dr. Zaki treated me with compassion and kindness. Before the surgery he explained all the scenarios of my surgery - what would happen if he had to remove the entire kidney or partial kidney - if he could do it robotically or open me up in the back - how long I'd be in the hospital and my recovery time based on one of the scenarios. He was very honest and up front with everything. Listened to my questions and genuinely cared.
in Celina, OH |
I had prostate cancer 3 1/2 years ago with a very aggressive type of cancer and with the experience of Dr. Zaki's removal of the prostate and some radiation I am cancer free. Most important is I have had very little side affects from the procedures. (leakage, erections with a little cialis)
in Beavercreek, OH |
I had re-occuring pain in my left abdomen for over 2 years. My life was miserable and my Dr's. in Michigan could not diagnose the problem. Dr. Zaki removed overr 35 kidney stones and the pain is gone. He gave my life back to me. I highly recommend him.
in Dayton, OH |
I have been a patient of Dr. Zaki for over 8 years. I appreciate the way he explains all the options for treatment, answers questions and concerns, and is supportive of your decision. I have always felt valued and understood.
Dayton, OH |

in Miamisburg, OH |
Dr. Zaki did an excellent job of providing me with information regarding my options. Answered all of my questions completely. He is very professional and patient friendly. His staff is very patient centered and explain everything they are about to do in detail. I knew exactly what to expect. There were no surprises. My experience was outstanding and I highly recommend Dr. Zaki.
in Dayton, OH |
I was in the care of Dr. Zaki for the removal of a tumor from my right kidney. He explained in detail, and with compassion my condition, as well as his recommended surgical procedure. My post-op rehabilitation has gone better than expected, and I am on path for a complete and thorough recovery. I am 80 years old, and thankful for Dr. Zaki's gifted hands.
in Dayton, OH |
Dr. Zaki helped me solve a long time issue that other doctors (over several years) did not resolve. He is honest and direct the way it should be. My quality of life has been changed for the better and I am SO grateful for his work. His staff is also superb. Again, I cannot express in words how much better my life is now!
