Amazing doctor and great team. Felt like I was in good hands. A little bit of a wait, but I had been warned by the office when they confirmed my appointment and it was well worth the wait.

My visit was very successful. Dr. Zarnegar was very confident and professional. He listened to my concerns and had in-depth knowledge of my conditions. I was there for my gallbladder but he also addressed my concerns with my thyroid. I willgo anywhere he is for treatment. Book with him ASAP!!$
