We did have to wait awhile but I understand there was an emergency so it didn't bother me too much. Had a couple people call my child by the wrong name.

Dr. Zarella is the best doctor we have ever had and I (mom) am a nurse who works with many doctors. His bed side manner is above and beyond! He ensures everyone understands what he is saying myself & my husband with no medical experience. He is warm and welcoming! Wonderful doctor!!!

Dr. Zarella is a fantastic surgeon and communicator. He is kind, patient, professional, and relatable. I would not hesitate for a second to return to him if needed, nor hesitate to recommend Dr. Zarella to anyone else. I feel extremely fortunate to have been under his care.

Office and provider went above and beyond to make sure my child was seen at a convenient time for us (traveling for out of state). We have consistently been impressed by the care we have received here.

Referral from dermatologist was lost? Misplaced? We did not receive a call from Dr Zarella's office to set up an appointment. I had to call multiple times over the course of a full month before the referral final was available and we could schedule an appointment.

The doctor was very sporadic & all over the place when explaining our daughter's head shape & whether or not intervention w/helmet would help.

We have received phenomenal care from Dr. Zarella and his team. I will always refer people to him if needed! He is clear and explains things well. He never made me feel like I was silly for asking questions and always took his time to make sure we had everything we needed. The surgery my son received has changed his life and we have Dr. Zarella to thank for that! He is an excellent provider and great at what he does.

The doctor was professional, thoughtful and took care in answering our questions. We had heard great feedback about the doctor and it was all true. We felt very comfortable knowing he was taking care of our son.

I would definitely recommend him, he is an excellent doctor. He explains very well everything that could happen in the surgery. There was nothing left for my husband and me to ask, it was very easy to understand and to explain it to us.
