Patient Reviews
Mar 29, 2023
Dr Zelhart is the best colon rectal surgeon in the world. He listens to you and your concerns. I had emergency surgery in March 2022. I had a colostomy. He reversed that in Oct 2022. I then had an ileostomy. In Nov. 2022, he did surgery and now no more bags to deal with. He is a very caring Doctor and he runs on time for appointments. He has an excellent staff. I might also add that I am an 87 year old woman. Make an appointment you will not be disappointed.
