Dr. Zarrinmakan is a diplomat of the American Board of Thoracic Surgery and a fellow of the American College of Surgeons. He is also a member of the Society of Thoracic Surgeons, the Ohio State Medical Association, and the Trumbull County Medical Society.

As an active clinician Dr. Zarrinmakan performs all aspects of Vascular and Thoracic Surgery and also takes care in the training of residents and Ohio medical students.
