I was scheduled for neck surgery at Chilton Medical Center, The Hospital itself is clean and organized. The staff is friendly and Professional. They go above and beyond. I was blown away by their expertise. Dr. ZBar (who is awesome with a capital A) walked into the room and put my mind at ease instantly. I don't know if it was his friendly personality with me or how I could see his staff loved working with him, or the maybe it was the cool music playing in the room. : ) All I can say is my mind was at ease as I was ready to have my procedure. He took a golfball sized tumor out of my neck. Now one month later, you can hardly tell there is a scar there. Communicated with me to see how I was doing and how I was healing. A true professional. As good of an experience that it could of been. Dr. ZBar and Chilton Medical Center I highly recommend !!! Thank you !!!

I was diagnosed with melanoma a couple of months ago. I was completely devastated as I knew my life would forever change. I was so afraid of what was in store for my future as well as my children. My primary care doctor sent me to Dr. Zbar for a consultation and it was the best decision I ever made. Dr. Zbar explained everything to me in such detail and guided me and my family through the entire process. He removed the melanoma with skill and attention to detail. He personally answered all of the many questions from my family with such patience. He didn't have nurses call me back but he addressed everything with me each and every time. He was there for me when I needed it the most. I recommend Dr. Zbar. He is the best reconstructive plastic surgeon.

I had a mole on my face and went to Dr. Zbar. I thought it was nothing to worry about, but he expertly explained his concerns to me. He did a biopsy and it turned out to be a cancer. Dr. Zbar calmed me down. He explained it all. He took it out and sewed it up. He did a great job.

Dr. Zbar is awesome. I had a large "lump" on my back. He removed it and repaired it. The procedure went very well. He explained everything. He and his staff were excellent. The scar is invisible. I highly recommend him !

Good,caring and strict surgeon. He treated my husband very well and helped us to understand the condition well. He provided all instructions before and after the surgery. Staff are very courteous.

Dr Zbar is a great find. He is articulate and kind. He explains everything. My scar is barely visible.

Dr Zbar is sincere and honest which in today's world is remarkable. He guided me through a difficult skin cancer diagnosis and his scar is barely visible. I highly recommend him.

It has been a year since I had a back lipoma removed by Dr Zbar. I normally never write reviews, but even a year later looking at my scar makes me so angry. I didn’t have a good feeling from Zbar since our first appointment, even though he came as a referral to me. He was condescending and talked down to me. The real problem came about 1 month after my surgery. I could tell the scar was not healing correctly and I called Zbar to tell him that it seemed open on one side and small amounts of blood were coming out. He was extremely nasty on the phone and told me that would be “extremely rare”. I had to insist that something was wrong and he passive aggressively agreed to have me in for an appointment. Turns out my stitches had come out. Now I have an ugly scar that is much fatter on one side. Avoid him !

Dr. Zbar is a woderful doctor. Gives clear explanation of patient choices, if patient chooses surgery by him, he schedules a preparatory visit with further preparations and describing sysmptoms after surgery and necessary wound care. He is an extremely skilled and caring surgeon, kept reassuring me all through surgery. I am glad and grateful that I had found him.

I first met Dr R Zbar for discussion about breast reconstruction. I was sent by my breast surgeon. He immediately put me at ease. I was really nervous. He explained all the options and explained everything. The staff at Dr Zbar’s office are really sweet. Margaret helped me so much. Rosie did a great job getting my procedures approved by insurance. And Dr Zbar is in network, so everything was covered. The surgery went well. Everything looks great. I am so happy.

16 years ago, Dr, Zbar, performed surgery on my baby girl. She was only one year old, at that time and was born with a cleft palate. Dr. Zbar did a great job. Thank you, Doc. You're the best! _The Diaz's

I have a melanoma. Dr Zbar immediately made me feel calm as he clearly has a great experience and understanding. He explained everything to me. His staff made me feel like I was their number one priority. The surgery went well. My incision is healing fantastic and you can barely see it. I would recommend him to anyone.

I was recently diagnosed with breast cancer and needed to have a total mastectomy. My breast surgeon referred me to Dr. Zbar for breast reconstruction. Dr. Zbar guided me through a very difficult time from pre-surgery to post surgery. He has been my angel during this very trying time. I recommend Dr. Zbar to every women who has gone through what I have gone through. I could not have done it without him. He made my breasts look beautiful again and gave me my life back.

Wonderful and caring doctor. Explains everything. Spends a lot of time with patients. I can't even see my scar; from a large skin cancer.

6 Mike in Clifton, NJ – Nov 05, 2016


Dr. Zbar is a very rude doctor. He gave very poor responses on questions I had asked him during my appointment. He had also started an argument with me during my appointment which was totally unacceptable. I do not recommend Dr. Zbar to anyone.

1 Ronald G in Bloomfield, NJ – Sep 29, 2016


Focused on my problem and outlined all the options. Really cares about the patient. Nice bedside manner too.

2 Mary E in Wayne, NJ – Mar 28, 2016


Great experience. Excellent doctor with awesome bedside manner. Knows his stuff and communicates it well. Staff is helpful. Takes all insurance.

3 Stella in Hoboken, NJ – Mar 22, 2016


I was diagnosed with the devastating diagnosis of melanoma. Dr. Zbar helped me get through reconstructive surgery on my face and now I am cancer free. His technical skills are, by far, exceptional. If you have melanoma or any type of skill cancer, you must see Dr. Zbar. Also, he participated with my insurance.
