    Dayton, OH |
    I had major robot-assisted surgery last year. He likely saved my life by removing the cancer. However, his promise to take care of the post-op pain was a lie. I suffered unbearable pain on and off for 2 days and he did nothing beyond the 'standard' pain relief. He even had the gall to ask me, when I was in the throes of agonly, if I'd had "surgery before." I answered through gritted teeth, "yes, oral surgery." He replied: "that's not surgery." If you don't like pain, stay away from this one.

    Dr. Zaki has proven to be an excellent doctor in my experience. He exhibited compassion in discussing my cancer and was willing to spend all the time necessary to explain both my problem and the different choices that I had in treatment. I made the choice to have robotic surgery which he performed with skill. His follow-up has been very through.

    Dr. Zaki correctly identified my Prostate cancer, explained the prognosis and the possible treatments. I chose surgery, and Dr. Zaki performed the surgery. As a result, I have been cancer free for five years. Dr. Zaki, is not only a great Doctor, but a he is a genuine, caring person.

    Read Dr. Zaki's Bio it will convince you, you are in good hands. Try the other Urology Group in Dayton and hope you like waiting for hours and being spoken to like an adolescent. From first visit through surgery to post op visit, Doc is prompt and professional. Male prostrate issues are stressful enough, I trusted his path for our journey together in tackling my cancer. I don't need some fancy office environment, give me the most talented Doctor, that's what I found here.

    I have been a patient of Dr. Zaki for many years due to a spot on my left kidney. In 2015 he told me the spot was the same and not growing but there was an abnormality in my pancreas. That led to my seeing my gastro doctor and it was discovered that I had a malignant tumor on my pancreas duct. I had surgery in January of 2016 and to this date I am cancer free. It all stems back to Dr. Zaki discovering it. I will always be in debt to him.

    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 |
    I would recommend Dr. Zaki. He shows genuine concern . Very upbeat person. No long waiting.
    in Dayton, OH |
    Really knows his specialty and is welling to answer all your question and keeps working to help you resolve your problem.
    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!
