07/04/14 5 5 5 5 Dr. Zalzal is an excellent Orthopedics surgeon, very caring and has a significant background in Biomechanics. Had my surgery Nov. 8 2013 this is now April 2014 and there is nothing l can not do with this knee. I am a seventy one years old women. I had very severe pain in my right knee. I had no knee cap so that did not help and it was bone on bone and lots of arthritis the pain was so bad I would cry when it got really bad. Dr. Zalzal and his assistant Patricia were so wonderful and Patient. He showed me my x-rays and explained that l would need a total knee replacement. I had the surgery and the same night l was up on the walker, walking around, Dr. Zalzal came to see me the next day in my hospital room and said it went so well and all was excellent I could go home the next morning. I was amazed. Within a week l had full range movement and work out every day. If l had a question Patricia gets me the answer right away. He is the best Orthopedic Surgeon, I am so grateful. Thank you Dr. Zalzal and Patricia  Respond

17/10/12 5 5 5 5 My dad was referred to Dr. Zalzal as a 3rd opinion. His dislocated artificial hip and complicated medical history made him a huge risk for any surgery. We met Dr. Zalzal and he immediately realized my dad deserved a better quality of life and he scheduled him for emergency surgery two weeks later. Dr. Zalzal and Dr. Weening operated together and both surgeons were professional, caring and genuine. They are physicians because they care about their patients and they are good at what they do. I never thought I'd see my dad walk again, but with the expertise of Dr. Zalzal, my dad is flourishing with the ability to stroll through life once again….THANK YOU DR. ZALZAL!  Respond

02/04/11 5 5 5 5 Dr. Zalzal ia a gem. I went with hip pain. He found it was radiating pain from my back. He did not give up on me, he sent me for the nessary test and set me up with the best back surgeon. Also his receptionist is a sweety. Thank you so much too both for working towards a pain free world for me. Hugs Lauri Walker  Respond

20/04/10 5 5 5 5 Dr. Zalzal is an exceptional physician. He treated a close friend with such professionalism and care. His bedside manner is superb. He provided us with all the treatment options and made us feel re-assured and confident. I have interacted with a lot of different physicians, and I feel that Dr. Zalzal is the best I have yet encountered. Oakville is very lucky to have such an amazing man.  Respond

26/07/09 5 5 5 5 I didn't know a small town like Oakville had such great surgeons. Had my hip replaced after someone in Toronto screwed it up and it is better than ever now.  Respond

30/06/09 4 5 5 5 Great Doc. Had AVN. Did hip decompression surgery (didn't help but no fault of anyone) leading to total hip replacement. He was patient when needed to be, and pushed me when needed (sometimes we all need a little pushing). After a lot of face to face time with many doctors, he is one of the better ones. His front desk staff is curtious, just try and make sure anything important (docs to be signed, etc.) are done by the regular(s).  Respond

02/04/09 5 5 5 5 I found Dr. Zalzal to be really knowledgeable, helpful, and very friendly. I also liked that he had a background in biomechanics. He made the time to see my father-in-law promptly and provided a thorough assessment.  Respond

26/02/09 4 5 5 5 I broke my left arm with a segmented fracture (2 complete fractures) about a year ago. I was seen my Dr.Zalzal who at that time thought NOT to proceed with surgery and to wait and see if it may be needed. Today, almost a year later, I am almost fully recovered. It's better to leave it to heal by itself than to opt for a plate/screws right away. Although the healing to me is satisfactory, I believe its good enough. I would definitely recomend Dr.Zalal for a few reasons. He was polite and explained everything well. He took time to listen to all the questions i had, especially on the follow ups. I had lists of questions. And he was nice enough and replied to them all. I wish him a life full of success, and hope that he is as helpful to those in need as he was to me. I will be heading up for a follow up very soon with him.  Respond

16/12/08 4 4 4 5 I chose Dr.Zalzal due to his research in knee miniscus replacement. I was in a lot of pain due to a cronic knee injury. I found him to be helpful and knowledgable. He is not maybe the most social of doctors but I think many people expect the same relationship that they have with their GP. In my experience this is not the case - find a good doctor who can fix your knee and be grateful that they can fit you in. Find a friend somewhere else but don't choose your knee doctor that way - you only have 2 of them and they both need to work!  Respond

14/11/08 5 5 5 5 Dr. ZalZal is by far the best Orthopaedic Surgeon that I have been to. I have Osteo Arthritis and have had to have several joints replaced. Some were unsuccessful. Dr. ZalZal's work was amazingly perfect. Short hospital stay, quick recovery. Almost a year later, and still extremely pleased.  Respond

30/10/08 5 5 5 5 Dr. Zalzal is a fantastic doctor. When my son broke his arm, Dr. Zalzal was amazing in ensuring that he had a perfect and speedy recovery. We found him very attentive and willing to answer all our questions and his follow up visits were very thorough. I would definitely recommend Dr. Zalzal to anyone looking for a very reliable and professional orthopedic surgeon.  Respond

23/10/08 1 5 1 1 I went to Dr Zalzal to have my OA looked at in my knees and had surgery with him and was in far more pain after the surgery until I was able to go to Dr. Deakon and have it fixed after. I was in crippling pain and unable to even make it through a grocery store. I asked if perhaps i COULD GET A HANDICAP PARKING PASS FOR DAYS WHEN i WAS IN SEVERE PAIN AND WAS LAUGHED AT BY HIM AND TOLD IF EVERYONE WITH A "little Arthritus" in their knees took up the handicapped parking there would be none for the ones who truly need them. He laughed it off like I was a fool and was not in pain. Was not impressed but Dr. Deakon has been amazing.  Respond

19/09/08 4 4 1 2 I did not have a good experience with Dr.Zalzal. My GP referred me to him for OA in my knees and I didn't end up following through with a surgery. He spent only 10 minutes speaking to me seemed very preoccupied.  Respond
