Dr. Zenilman is a general surgeon with a specialty in pancreatic issues. He is the chairman of the department of surgery at the state university of new york, otherwise known as "downstate". He is not a terrible doctor, but as a human being I don't feel like he is very trust worthy. When I look for a doctor I am looking for someone who I can trust, so I wouldn't want to go to him. When my cousin needed emergency surgery he was the only one available so we used him, but I pushed very hard to find another surgeon. He isn't great and isn't terrible, but I want a great doctor to operate on people I care about.
