Dr Zilinski is an excellent spine surgeon! I have been his patient for about 3 years now, he fused my neck & lumbar spine. Both surgeries were completed without any complications & my results have been spectacular. I highly recommend him!

Dr. Z is awsome! He listens to you and makes sure that you understand what the plan is. I did well after surgery and he still sees me every 2 months.

Horrible surgical experience. This guy should not be allowed to practice. He tried to repair the first spinal fusion he did in December 2018 but was unable to do so. Then I had to spend a week at Zale Lipshy Hospital in Dallas. Thank God for the personnel in that facility as they saved my life and were finally able to stop my spinal fluid leak after Zielinski's inability to do so.

Dr. Zeliilinski I found to be caring & professional; he did not appear to be one of those watching the clock to get you in & out in 15 minutes. I certainly would recommend him even though I did not have surgery. Amanda though appears less than professional, 3 calls were necessary to schedule an appointment. Twice Amanda took my name and insurance information but no return call, after my 3rd call she did schedule me. Now after 2 weeks my referral to another doctor has not happened. Again Amanda?
