A Godsend

Total stud. I had a 3 level discectomy 5 years ago and couldn't have been happier with the results. Dr. Z really made me feel like family (as cheesy as that sounds.) One time he told me that my situation had kept him up at night and I laughed and said, oh come on. He wasn't kidding. He said I was too young to be going through what I was going through (I was 30 at the time)and he was just very concerned. You can't beat that for a caring Doctor. If I get married again, the man will be invited. He gave me a new lease on life, free of debilitating leg pain from an accident.

Dr. Zipnick has performed 3 of my spine surgeries as well as my neck operation and I would travel great distances to have his hands operate on me again...if needed. He not only is a great surgeon he is also a great person with a very sincere caring personality.

Best surgeon i have ever had...no best doctor i have ever had

I have to be honest here because what I am about to write most would say this cannot be real. Doctor Zipnick I met at a dinner party I was hosting for guest which I knew none of. I have a list of things I could tell you are wrong with me, but let us just say I could be on disability if I wanted too. This is a out him. The night I met him I had told him I give up on all doctors. He said give me a chance and let me at least look at your back at the office and just schedule an appointment like everyone else. Let me say I am 11 days post op and ha e never felt this good in my life. It took a out a months worth of time until surgery. He actually sat in the room with me for those 4 weeks prior to surgery. Be listened and cared like I had seen in no doctor in my lifetime of 44 hears. One day while I was I in the room waiting for him I was getting upset because I was waiting a half hour. But then I was listening in and I realized he was explaining everything in detail to her and I then I realized he was doing for her what he does for me. He cares, is by far the best doctor out there and he is worth flying in to salt lake city from anywhere in the world. I give him 7 stars with pleasure.
