“Doctor Zanaros was very professional and very friendly. He made me feel very comfortable during the visit. I would highly recommend him to anyone. I was seen by Dr Zanaros promptly at my scheduled appointment time. This is the second time I have used The Bone and Joint Center, the first time I had Dr. Flattery, and he was excellent also. After my good experience with my first visit to your practice when I injured my shoulder in November, I went to your call directly which I received prompt, professional service. Before I would have gone to an on-call site or ER and they would have referred me to a specialist. Your practice provides much quicker access to the specialists to get proper care. I highly recommend your practice to anyone who asks me.”

Patient rating: 5 stars
“The experience was as comfortable as any surgery can be. The office staff was friendly and efficient as were the nurses and other staff. I was satisfied both before and after the surgery, in fact, everything was better than expected. The wait time was minimal. I felt fine when I left and continued to feel fine after reaching home. This is my second time using these facilities, and both experiences were good ones. Of course, my goal is not to have to return, but if someday I need to have further work done I would choose to go back to this facility without hesitation.”

“Dr. Zanaros has seen me before actually done surgery on me and was very thorough. It's been three years since the surgery, and it still feels perfect — something another surgeon couldn’t do with three tries. I would highly recommend Dr. Zanaros if you need any rotator cuff repair. Recently seen Dr. Zanaros pretty sure it’s something going on in my neck again, he was very thorough he listens to you he doesn’t cut you off which is pleasantly surprised with physicians nowadays. Still he was very professional with his assessment. Recommend treatment plan he saw best and will return for follow up if the program doesn’t work. Highly recommend him.”
