I always do a thorough background ck. of my physicians. I chose Dr. Zavell for many good reasons such as: 1. recc. by other docs. in the area as someone they would use themselves/family members 2. attended and performed with distinction at a top medical school (Univ. of Michigan) 3. has maintained a practice with great reputation over time in the community 4. holds all pertinent credentials for the practice of Plastic & Reconstructive Surgery 5. is active with cutting edge techniques/procedures 6. has a knowledgeable, accessible staff 7. the office itself has an upscale design with and attached day spa. ****IMPT!!! Not all docs are equal. Do your homework. Check credentialing in the area of specialty. I am a retired hospital administrator from a different (but also top-notch) university hospital, who was raised by a top tier school doc-dad, and am pleased to say my daughter is carrying on the tradition in medical school today. Not everyone hanging out a shingle to do certain reconstructive pr
Dr. Zavell and his team are Impeccable. They go to great lengths to explain and ensure you understand everything about the procedure. They made me feel very comfortable and confident with my decision. In fact so much so, I was excited about having it done! The aftercare provided was faultless by Dr. Zavell and his team. The friendliness when I walk into their office puts me at ease and makes me feel exceedingly comfortable. It take my hat off to this team. It will be impossible to find a better practice to serve your needs. I am so happy with the service and results I have received, that I am contemplating having my second (and last) procedure done in the near future! You will be happy with your choice, Dr Zavell and his team will take great care of you and the results will be fantastic!
I went to see Dr Zavell in May 2009 for a consult on breast reconstruction after having a mastectomy. I found him to be very understanding and compassionate. I had previously been mistreated by a surgeon and was very nervous about having surgery. He and his wonderful staff helped me get through the three surgeries necessary for complete reconstruction. Since then I have been totally happy with the way my breasts look. Medical professionals have told me that his work is the best they have seen. I strongly recommend him
Dr. Zavell has been my plastic surgeon for 18 years. He has shown remarkable skill in reconstructing areas of my face and scalp which have been ravaged by multiple skin cancers. He has always provided all the information I need to make an informed decision regarding each of the surgeries I've had. I would highly recommend him for any type of cosmetic or reconstructive surgery due to his competence, skill as a surgeon and bedside manner. He has an easy going manner with a good sense of humor which I appreciate.
The entire process of my surgery was wonderful. Dr. Zavell spent a lot of time with me during my pre-op appointment so I knew exactly what to expect. There was no pressure, and any time I had questions the doctor and his nurses were available to offer their help. The nurses and other staff involved were professional, kind, and knowledgeable. But the best thing about my surgery with Dr. Zavell is that I love my results!
I had a wonderful experience with Dr. Zavell, I recommend him to any one interested and i have had no problems with the surgery. He will be in my heart for a long time because he made a dream of mine come true!!!!
