What People Say About Dr. Zouheir Fares, DO

Dr. Fares and his staff were professional, kind and respectful at our visit. I felt comfortable asking questions and appreciated the care they showed my son during his procedure. I was relieved that my son was able to get an appointment, without much notice, to treat his condition. They were also very flexible when scheduling his follow up visit before our vacation. I also appreciated that the staff had communicated thoroughly with our pediatrician to familiarize themselves with my son's condition.

Dr Fares was extremely caring and compassionate to me. My surgery was scheduled even though he was preparing to leave on vacation. Since my problem was severely urgent, he got me into his schedule before leaving. He was kind and very considerate of my condition and went above and beyond the call of duty. I appreciate his concerns for my situation and his willingness do do my surgery on such short notice, given he was leaving for vacation. Thank you Doctor Fares for your very professional service. I cannot thank you enough for your care.

The doctor was very rude and seemed to be bothered by my questions.

This was an awful experience. Dr. Fares was rude and short. He didn’t want to hear me.

HE DOESN'T LISTEN. I had a procedure performed in August 2018; Dr. Fares performed the procedure adequately (though he didn't really explain anything about it, his nurse did), but I had some complications, and when I reported my converns at my follow-up appointment, he completely ignored everything I said, and instead touted his own professional achievements. Totally rude and condescending. It's now almost October and I am continuing to have complications, but I'm wary of making another appoint.

Dr. Fares and his staff are all I could have hoped for in my search for quality, reliable medical care and follow up visits. He has consistently provided the absolute best care, advice and treatment during every visit and for every issue I have had to get through. If you are looking for a doctor who has superior medical knowledge and many years of surgical experience, then look no farther. What makes Dr. Fares even more special is that he takes time to "know you" as a person.

This man saved my husbands life. He is very humble and credited God for the successful surgery. I too believe God was with us not just for the surgery, but leading us to this wonderful doctor.

I met with Dr. Fares for a consultation re: a surgery I was planning on having that I was extremely nervous about. He was extremely rude and condescending, and made me feel uncomfortable about the condition I had. He spoke to me for approximately 3 minutes about the surgery I would need, provided me little to no detail about the procedure, then sent me to scheduling. I called back to speak to a nurse, and did not receive a call back. Needless to say, I canceled the surgery. Do not recommend.

I had a problem for over 20 years that Doctors told me was in my mind basically. Dr. Fares diagnosed it immediately and took care of it that fast. Wow is all I have to say about this wonderful Dr. He might not have the best bedside manner but that's not what you should look for in a doctor. I adore him.
