What Our Patients Are Saying
"Dr. Rasa Zarnegar is probably the nicest doctor I have ever met. He is so easy to talk to and seems like he has all the time in the world. I had acid reflux surgery performed by him this past November. Everything went very smoothly and he was readily available to talk to before and after surgery. Sometimes the top doctor in the field ends ups being the nicest. I recommend Dr. Z without any hesitation."
"Dr. Swistel is a remarkably kind and caring man, and a brilliant surgeon. He cares about his patients as human beings, not bodies with a cancer to be removed. I feel incredibly safe in his hands."
"I was very satisfied with the way he explain the test results and what he ll be doing during my upcoming surgery using computer images and so on. He gave us practical answers to all of our questions. We felt at ease with him."
