Summary: Bravo Dr. Zacks
April 29th, 2014
No visit to the doctor's office is really welcome, however Dr. Zacks' easy manner and subtle humor is deeply appreciated. As he went over my diagnosis and options for surgery, I thought him thoroughly helpful and appreciated his direct manner answering questions. When the day of surgery arrived, it occurred to me I could be in no better hands. The procedure was a great success. Recovery, though requiring comfort food, went well and my vision is greatly improved. Thank you, Dr. Zacks and staff, for your years of study and for maintaining the very definition of professionalism.
