“I have complete confidence in Dr. Zakhary. He puts us at ease.”
– Leslie B.
“When I was referred to Dr. Zakhary for treatment I was in a lot of pain, I could not wear shoes and the wounds limited my activities. One ulcer was from an injury many years ago that wouldn’t heal, others started to appear afterwards. Dr. Zakhary diagnosed and began treatment. After venous surgery my circulation started to improve. All began to heal. The old wound needed further surgery and special wound care, it is now all healed and I have no more pain. (Great staff, kind and understanding).”
