I travel over 1,200 miles to see Dr. Zuckerbraun. He offered to help me when no one else would. His bedside manner is impeccible.

Dr. Kuckernaun was absolutely fantastic!!!! He was vey concerned with my son's health and he offered us a ray of hope after many surgeon's refused to even talk to us. We can't thank him enough for taking on our sons difficult case!! He's the first surgeon we've see who truly cares about our son and wants to help him!

Dr Zukerbraun was very professional and explained why I was still experiencing pain after my laparotomy appendectomy. it was very reassuring and I left feeling that I should call his office if over the next 2 weeks the symptoms did not subside.
