First visit he seemed to care. But every time after he acted as if I was taking up his time. He at one point told me that "I needed to suck it up and realize there were other women that had it far worse than me." He even tried making me leave the hospital after less than 24 hours after my double mastectomy as if my hospital stay was coming out of his pocket. There are MANY more Doctors out there that are better than him out there. He is awful.

He gave me confidence in those difficult moment. He is the best surgeon you could ask for. The surgery was fast and with minimum pain. I would totally recommend as the best doctor.
Dr. Zannis is excellent as a surgeon and compassionate Doctor...far exceeded my expectations. Pat Johnson

Breast cancer diagnosis, I was referred to a MD who totally supported a mastectomy with reconstruction, 2 visits later I felt ill and sick to my stomach. The words which will resonate with me for a life time: "Your breast will be numb, no feeling and no nipple, breasts are sisters, not twins, we will do the the best", found Dr Zannis. First question out of his mouth, "why do you want a mastectomy?", NO, so after a lumpectomy, I have a breast, nipple, no negative margins,, thanks Dr V

The most wonderful doctor ever. Compassionate, caring and competent. I have seen Dr. Zannis on and off for 20 + years for fibrocystic breast disease. He has performed biopsies and aspirations as needed and as a precaution and always puts my mind at ease. I am not exaggerating when I say I would trust him with my life.

Dr. Zannis has become one of my human-angels, one of few people I trust with my life. He has a direct approach with test results, but he also has a warmth that you don't often find in surgeons. He did my breast cancer surgery, and I'm just going into the treatment phase. Everywhere I have gone, the staffs of hospitals, other physicians, imaging facilities, etc. speak only the highest of him.

My daughter drove me to my appt. We walked in and just loved his office. Decorated beautifully as if being in an adorable house. Spotlessly clean. Dr. Zannis and his staff explained every step. He is a true professional and we are so impressed with his compassion. I would recommend Dr. Zannis to everyone I know.

From the moment I walked into his office to the after surgery followup appointment, Dr Zannis was focused on ME! He cared about my fear, educated me about DCIS, heard my concerns and spoke to me with kindness and strength. His surgeon skills were apparent as I have had NO difficulties and the incision scar is NOT visible. Great doctor and great man!
