What People Say About Dr. Zachary Litvack, MD
Reply
I underwent surgery 19 days ago to remove a meningioma, the size of a quarter, located on the left side of my brain. Dr. Litvack explained in detail every aspect of the surgery, the success rate, and what my recovery would be like. He was spot on regarding all accounts. I appreciate that he has a good bedside manner, a great sense of humor, and most of all, amazing skill as a surgeon. I've made a full recovery, and feel extremely thankful.

Dr. Litvack is both an excellent surgeon and communicator. However after 16 hrs and 2 days reconstructing my spine, he forgot to say he was moving to Seattle and I can't find a doctor to take over! His recommendations refused to take a case not done byz their practice and my back hurts as bad as before! The abdominal wall muscles have let go and I have to undergo another surgey. Good luck Seattle!
