Dr. Z is very thorough and is a wonderful doctor. After both of my surgeries I am no longer in pain at those two areas. His staff is wonderful as well. I could not have asked for a better doctor.

Dr.Z is an excellent Dr, the first I found with the confidence to say he could actually help my bad neck. His office staff is excellent, always attending to my issues promptly.
