Dr. Vladimir Zeetser, DPM, FACFAS
America's Premier Foot & Ankle Surgeon
Dr. Zeetser is probably the best doctor I have EVER encountered, across the board. As I'm sure many will agree, finding a good, honest, sincere doctor/surgeon in this city is near damn impossible. There are so many who will tell you anything to take your money, make you sit around for hours and leave you unable to explain what's wrong with yourself b/c they talk so freaking fast and leave so many of your questions unanswered.
I visited Dr. Zeetser after I had four surgeries on my left foot. My previous surgeon left with me four types of bacteria (including MRSA and STAPH) and an open wound that was getting worse and worse. I only wish I had gone to Dr. Z initially, because I probably would've saved about a year of recovery, a ton of money and so much emotional distress. On my first visit, Dr. Zeetser and his partner carefully and thoroughly spent nearly 2 hours with me inspecting my wound and determining what was the next plan of action to help me get back on my feet.
Because of Dr. Zeetser I am now able to dance again, run, jump, workout, hike and do all the things I love to do. I would recommend him to ANYONE having foot pain or needing a second opinion. In fact, of whomever you've gone to, PLEASE get a second opinion from Dr. Z because you will be shocked to hear how many doctors wanna cut you open for no reason, leaving you with more problems than you had before. (Seriously!) It's absolutely horrendous.
I most likely will be needing bunion surgery (for the 2nd time on my left foot, due to my previous surgeon's haste and lazy job) as well as on my right foot. I feel so confident and assured being in the hands of Dr. Zeetser, and I know you will too.
To any athlete, dancer or anyone who uses their bodies to make a living, please know that there IS hope if you are dealing with frustrating foot issues. Take it from someone who has been through it!!! Go to Dr. Z!!!
