Theresa Fariello in Washington , DC – Sep 16, 2019
Fabulous surgeon w/ attentive and helpful staff. He wouldn’t do my incisional hernia surgery w/o my first losing 25 pounds, which I did, and it now looks like that advice was really smart cause it’s highly unlikely this particular issue will not arise again, as long as I keep the weight off. Dr. Zorc was recommended to me by 2 of 5 medical professionals from whom I sought recommendations, both of whom described him as “meticulous,” which he certainly is. The surgery took longer than anticipated (5.5 v. 2 hrs), largely because he found 14 actual hernias, as opposed to the 2 he id’d externally by ultrasound. He took his time and repaired all w/ the result there was little or no post-op pain 2 days later and all the staples came out w/in 3 weeks. A really, really good doctor.

Amina – May 22, 2018
Dr. Zorc and his whole staff are absolutely outstanding. He is knowledgeable, responsible thorough, and will leave no stones unturned until you are healed. I came to him after an unsuccessful Pilonidal Cystectomy surgery and he immediately understood what real problem was, did a new surgery and here I am, totally cured. His staff became a second family to me. They made me feel I was their only patient with their dedication . They love their job and they really care about their patients.

Dr. Richard Meyer in Chevy Chase, MD – May 24, 2017
The entire staff of Dr. Zorc's practice treats you like family. They couldn't be more helpful and considerate. Dr. Zorc repaired a hernia and removed a lipoma from my shoulder. The procedures were essentially painless and the recovery uncomplicated. I highly recommend him as a surgeon.The explanation of medical issues and services to resolve them and the follow up were very helpful.

Ray K in Washington, DC – May 10, 2016
No stress, great results. Dr. Zorc is what you always want in a doctor. Excellent bedside manners, superb surgeon and makes you feel comfortable. Private Surgical Suite was very clean and convenient. Walked into the surgical suite 45 minutes prior to gallbladder / appendix surgery. Successful surgery, minor incisions. Follow up visits have been great. Thank you!
