First let me say I don't usually write reviews but Dr. Zaino is worth taking the time to do it. I can't find enough good words in the dictionary to describe him! He treated my 60+ year old husband for a broken arm and it was a tricky break on the outer bone of his arm. Dr. Zaino performed the surgery and did an amazing job. My husband has recovered nicely. Dr. Zaino really impressed me - he's thorough, caring, extremely talented and just a genuine nice human being. I would put my trust in him any day of the week. He even left my husband a "thank you" card at his bedside while still in the recovery room. He said thank you for putting our trust in him and wished him a speedy recovery. How many doctors do you know that would care enough about their patients to do that? He's just amazing !
