Ratings for Dr. Vladimir Zeetser
Dr. Zeetser performed an amazing revision of my prior bunionectomy using his Fast Forward procedure. I originally came to see him in the middle of 2013 and chose him after several other consultations. At that time, he told me something new was coming out and suggested I wait. I kept checking in with him over the next year and a half and in December 2014, he told me the procedure was finally FDA approved. With this new procedure, I was able to walk immediately which is a big difference compared to the multiple weeks I had to stay off my foot with the former procedure. I had the bunion surgery on a Saturday and toe shortenings the next day on Sunday. I then had my other foot done in a similar way a month later. He also arranged for me to be able to stay overnight with a nurse at the surgery center. Furthermore, within just a couple of weeks after surgery, the new scars were very minimal and already less visible than my original bunionectomy scar from over 15 years ago, thanks to the way he stitched me up using a plastic surgical suture method. Additionally, I came from out of town (San Francisco Bay Area) and he was very accommodating with my schedule and saw me on weekends. It has been almost 2 years since he performed the surgeries and both feet are perfect.
I am Dr. Zeetser's biggest fan! If you have problems with your feet, ankle or toes why are you suffering? I had my 2nd procedure done last week I have just a couple of weeks more of healing. This coming winter when I am walking up to 5 miles a day I will think back to how easy it was to get rid of my pain. Just make an appt. with Dr. Z. talk to him and you will feel the sincerity I promise.
I am 56 years old. I suffered with toe pain for 18 months....LOTS of pain. First came injections that really helped then came my operation for a new big toe joint made of silicone. I was never scared. I can walk again without wincing in pain.Thanks Dr. Z. !
I first consulted Dr zeetser in 2009 when I seriously fractured my ankle, requiring extensive surgery. I was in alot of pain, and was nervous/scared as at that time had no previous surgeries of any kind, and did not know what to expect. Dr zeetser was very kind, and understanding of my fragile emotional state at that time, as well as his staff, who were also very considerate. Dr zeetser performed the difficult surgery with ease and perfection, and also treated me in all the aftercare, -and got back on my feet, -and am better then ever! I highly recommend this doctor to anyone who has any kind of foot or ankle issues, -he is the Best in his field, - and am forever grateful to him for all of his time, extra kindness, and professional expertise in his care in treating me. Thanks again Dr. Z ! :)
Dr.Zeetser is one of the most knowledgeable Physician's I have ever been to and I'm Old! LOL We went for my daughter. Severe FLAT feet. She has had surgery on one foot thus far and I gotta tell you this guy KNOWS what he is doing. He is also very personable and has a great bedside manner. I would recommend him without ANY hestitation. He is an undisputed 5! Thank you for taking such GREAT care of my daughter!!!! See you Early next year for the other foot.
Dr. Zeetser is EVERYTHING his recommendations say, and then some! I would have hugged him at the end, but that would have been either in appropriate or dangerous since he was making my heart beat fast!! He has a great way of listening to you completely, giving you all the time you need and taking his time in examination and writing his own notes after his intake nurse had written the basics, he still went over allergies and all sorts of stuff doctors don't usually take time to read. He very thoroughly explained my plan of treatment, and quite frankly I expected to get a rush treatment because of workman's comp and he treated me as if I paid him $5K! His office staff was very friendly and accommodating on the telephone and warm and welcoming when I entered.....I was greeted with "welcome to our office" how nice! Very clean, bright and great experience. I observed the same treatment to other patients and I loved how they walked them out the door to waiting room. Very professional.
I'm a celebrity client. My privacy is very important to me. I would never usually rate a doctor online but I had to share my experience with this caring and skilled surgeon. I had a large painful bunion. I could not afford to be off my feet for long. Dr,. Zeetser used a minimally invasive technique with a Tightrope. At 3 weeks, I was in normal shoes. Pain was minimal. Result was amazing!
I read most of the reviews before deciding to see Dr. Zeetser. Based on my overall experience I can say that Dr. Zeetser is definitely a leader in his field. His bedside manner is unreal and he is really down to earth. I have never had such a good time going to see a doctor. He diagnosed me properly after I wasted my time at two other doctors. My treatment was well thought out and I did not feel rushed in any way. In fact, he spent more time with me on my first visit than most of the other doctors combined. I ended up having surgery and I healed really well. I am doing great and could not be happier. Just to mention, I drove out from Rancho Cucamonga to Encino to see him each time and it was well worth the gas. My only complaint was that one of his staff members forgot to give him one of my messages about disability papers, which got delayed by a while. But she was pregnant, I so I will give her a pass. I can't really blame the doctor for it. I hope this helps someone else!
am really impressed. This doc is one of a kind. From start to finish, everything turned out great. My 2nd toe was very long and hurting me in shoes at the tip and I was starting to get a callus at the end. Dr. Z shortened the toe with an implant and it looks and feels great. No pain and my toe doesn't hang over my high heels anymore.
