2004 I had Trig. Neuralgia, in Rt side of face, for 25yrs prior to going to Dr. Zeiger for treatment. I had tried all available Meds and was at the maximum dosage. The pain was so terrible that I did not think that I could continue to live,  when my family Dr sent me to Dr Zeiger. Dr Evan Zeiger saw me and scheduled surgery for the next day. He was a wonderful Christian man that prayed prior to surgery. He did the brain surgery and was very honest with me and told me that it was a very serious operation but that it would do away with the pain. I spent 3 days & nights in NICU in very bad pain with tubes everywhere but I did recover and I am pain free. I thank God everyday for leading me to Dr Zeiger and Caraway Hospital. They were wonderful to me.  Ii is now June 2010 and I am still free of pain. I was so saddened to hear that he had passed away. He was a wonderful Dr and man and I know that God has a special place for him in Heaven.

20`0 I guess this morning I feel blessed but also so very very saddened.  I was operated on by Dr. Zeiger last thursday and woke up totally pain free.  This is my 2nd surgery from Dr. Zeiger and each time he has had me good as new.  I was touched that he asked to pray with me and he asked god to give him the skills to heal mr. bowerman.  reading the news of his death, i am in tears and grown men don't cry often.  I had just told my wife this morning that Dr. Zeiger was the most caring dr. I have ever seen and how blessed I feel I was that he came into my life.  My prayers, all my prayers go to Dr. Zeigers family.  I am just sitting here stunned and so very sad that god chose this time to take such a great healer from us.  I'm not ashamed to say, dr. zeiger I loved you.

Dr Zeiger saved my life.  He was a wonderful man, a gifted sugeon, and an aviation enthusiast.  As a former military aviator I understand the love of flying and the risks associated with it.  The world has lost a truley great man.  My wife and I extend our condolences to his family and friends.

2009 I suffered with back pain for two years; was being 'treated' by an orthopod in Birmingham but the physical therapy and steroid injections were not helping. The orthopod didn't offer anything that corrected the problem and eventually wouldn't return my phone calls or even schedule an MRI to see what was causing my pain.   Finally, my regular doctor ordered an MRI and recommended that I see Dr. Zeiger at Brookwood. 

I didn't even have to schedule my own appointment, Dr. Zeiger's office worked with my family doctor to get the information they needed.  I went to see Dr. Zeiger and was very pleased with the way I was treated.  I didn't have to wait long in the waiting room, his staff was very pleasant and professional. 

Dr. Zeiger was very thorough and explained why the treatment I had been getting wasn't helping.  He then explained the surgery he thought would help me.   His nurse was very helpful getting the surgery scheduled and all of the paperwork in order.  I had surgery the following week!  The first couple of weeks after the surgery were pretty painful (but I was told to expect that) but it's been 3 months now and I am almost completely pain-free which is a miracle after the pain I was in for years.

Obviously, I would highly recommend Dr. Zeiger to anyone.

2004 I had back surgery by Dr. Zeiger and he was wonderful.  I love him for all of his patience and understanding.
Dr. Zeiger gives all the credit to our Lord and Savior for his ability to perform surgery.  During my encounters withDr. Zeiger, he has always prayed before and after the surgery.

I just want to thank Dr. Zeiger and ask God to Bless him and his family.
Thank you!

Cervical Fusion Dr Zeiger is very direct ,he only does surgery when it is necessary not only did I use him as a doctor, but my husband uses him as well. I am in the medical field and deal with doctors ever day so I am not easy to impress. Dr. Zeiger not only impressed me,but I have recommended him to my patients as well. I will however say I was not impressed with his nurse she mixed up several things such as appointments and where to get scans but he is so good I was willing to overlook her. The rest of his staff however made-up for her slack and poor phone presence.

2002 Excellent pre-surgery consult.  Dr. Zeiger is both sensitive and direct.  He is straightforward about the surgery and what to expect both early on after surgery and the longterm outcome.  He is supportive and encouraging.  My surgery went much better than I had anticipated and recovery while uncomfortable was much quicker than expected.  I highly recommend Dr. Zeiger as both an excellent surgeon and one that a patient can count on from an emotional aspect going into the surgery.
