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.

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.
