Thank God for Dr. Z! I had been experiencing horrible back pain since May of this year. I went to several doctors, was given countless costly medications, cortisone shots, and months of physical therapy, and I was still in agony.
I was referred to Dr. Zavaleta for fibroids and cysts that required surgery. While filling out my paperwork I mentioned on the forms that I have lower back pain and shooting nerve pain in my legs. Dr. Zavaleta asked me if I have ever been examined for a hernia. None of my doctors ever mentioned a hernia to me. I was told that it was bulging discs that were causing my pain. After a brief exam by Dr. Zavaleta, he discovered the hernia. The hernia was operated on soon afterwards and I have pain free ever since then.
I want to thank you again, Dr. Zavaleta, from the bottom of my heart for your great work. I would still be in great pain now without your intervention.
I just wanted to drop you a note to say "Thank You." I took your advice and tried the "diet4idiots." I found it a bit challenging at first but easy to follow. I am down 17 pounds and I feel great! I'm never hungry and have gained much of my energy back. I have 12 more pounds to lose to achieve my goal.
Thank You again for your help, you're the best!–Lisa Parasiliti
I wanted to take a minute and thank you for taking care of me. Your kindness is greatly appreciated! Dr. Kielson has been the only doctor I've ever seen and I really appreciate you taking over for him & I'm very happy to have been referred to you. Doctors are so important and its an honor to have you as one of mine. Thank You so much for your help and listening to what's important to me.–Jennifer O'Brien
Dear Dr. Z,
It was good to see you again. I want to thank you for the supply of Estrogel. It is so much appreciated as my Medicare doesn't cover it anymore. See you in two years - God willing.–Judy Hightower
Dearest Dr. Z, Kathy, and Crew,
Thank You for almost literally bathing me in care these past 12 months. I am a new woman and now have a "favorite doctor" to call my own and refer to others too.
I also want to thank you from the bottom of my heart for the generous gift certificate to Pappas Bros. We seldom treat ourselves to an extravagant meal. Your gift card arrived 2 days before our 17th wedding anniversary! It could not have been more perfect. You did not have to do that. It was my pleasure touting your practice and educating women about their choices to improve their quality of life.
You are truly changing lives - and have changed mine. I LOVE exercising and jogging and kickboxing and traveling again! I thank God for you and your staff. You make me feel like family.–Tracy K.
Since my surgery I have experienced major improvements with bladder control and bowel movements. My incontinence issues have been resolved so I don't have any problems with "leakage"! My bowel movements are normal again and I don't have a rectum that bulges into my vagina.
A word about sex. Before the surgery, sex was embarrassing and uncomfortable for both me and my husband. Now, we are much happier and satisfied with this part of our relationship . We finally feel "normal" again.
Thanks to Dr. Zavaleta and his modern methods of surgical enhancements and his superior efficiency, he was able to relieve me of all my symptoms and my sexual pleasure. Now, my husband and I enjoy our sexual relationship more, thanks to Dr. John Zavaleta. –Satisfied Patie A
Please know how grateful I am for your extra TLC taking care of my daughter Carla. You understand a mother's concern and that's worth a lot in my book!–Alma L. Castillo
This is my personal testimonial of a P & E surgery done by Dr. Zavaleta
My symptoms were constipation, back pain, and the most important part was my lack of sexual pleasure. I believed that these symptoms were normal after giving birth to 2 children. But after a thorough exam by Dr. Zavaleta he found problems and they were easily corrected. I invite all women to discuss these symptoms and the P & E with there gynecologist, because this is the best gift that you can do for your body and your personal relations with your spouse.

I am in my late 40's and have been a patient of Dr. Zavaleta's for the last 4 years. My child-bearing years were over and I was looking for a doctor close to home. From the very first visit Dr. Zavaleta and his staff made me feel very welcome and comfortable. They have provided me with the latest information pertaining to women's health and well being. Dr. Zavaleta discovered that my IUD had traveled thru my uterine wall, and he surgically removed it. At the same time he performed a tubal ligation. This way we would never have to deal with another IUD. Later he performed an ablation. And yes, that was the end of my periods. It has been a wonderful experience to deal with such a skilled doctor and surgeon as well as his staff. –Sara W.
I have been going to see Dr. Zavaleta for 17+ years, first for my annual physicals, then for pregnancy. First Dr. Z delivered my perfect baby boy via a difficult vaginal delivery. Next, Dr. Z and Dr. Hanson delivered my beautiful baby girl via an emergency cesarean. Dr. Z performed my tubal ligation at that time. Later I had an endometrial ablation performed by Dr. Z, which was wonderful!
Now that I am getting old, I'm 46, I discovered that my body was falling apart. I was having urinary incontinence and lower back pain from my prolapsed uterus. Sex was not great anymore, since I was all stretched out from my vaginal delivery. I thought these were just things I had to learn to live with.
I was shocked to discover that Dr. Z could fix all my problems with one trip to the hospital, and have a quick recovery time since the surgery was done via a vaginal entry! I had my surgery on Thursday and was back to work on Monday!
Dr. Zavaleta and all his staff are great! I am recognized and greeted in a friendly manner every time I go to his office. I had all of my questions explained to me thoroughly by hime and his knowledgeable staff. I highly recommend Dr. Z. He is a Doctor you can trust.–Carrie
I just wanted to take a moment to write and say thank you so very much for giving me back QUALITY OF LIFE!–Brijett
