Dr. Zahir AND his staff are amazing! You typically get one or the other. The staff is friendly, efficient and fun. Dr. Zahir actually takes time to listen and does not discount any thoughts you may have. I am so accustomed to doctors only listening to one issue at a time so I focused on the immediate issue. How shocked was I to learn he read my paperwork and began speaking about the other issues because they could be related. I feel safe there.

He listens!! He goes through diagnostics all the time when I come in to see if there are any changes. He leaves surgery as a last resort, doesn't want to throw pills at every ailment, but find causes and ways to change movement without reinventing the wheel. The other two orthopedists I went to either wanted to have me on extremely huge doses of NSAIDS or pain medications, if they didn't 'work' they wanted to do surgery. Dr Z has helped me through mild exercises and therapy.
