    How was your appointment with Dr. Zauner?

    Mar 29, 2022
    Dr Zauner also saved my life. After tripping on a concrete slab that markets seem to think they need, I fell and hit my head. After couple tests at local hospital was sent by ambulance to Santa Barbara for emergency surgery. Dr Louis Zauner removed a large hematoma on my brain and saved my life. I did not actually meet him until I went to have the stitches removed. I was told repeatedly that he was the best and I was fortunate that he was available. I feel this is true and blessed . I agree with all the previews above about how great he is. In order to do this surgery, it was necessary to shave off a strip of my hair on the right side of my head. (several inches wide) I have very long hair which had not been cut since beginning of the Covid epidemic. When first meeting him I remarked, I just wanted to see what man cut off my hair! then remarked I guess I should thank you for saving my life! He took all of that in stride then remarked, It was an emergency situation. Its OK
