I am leaving a meeting review since I am not able to go in and edit my previous review. It seems Dr. Zakari’s office staff are doing much better now. My precious review had nothing to do with Dr Zakari’s care. He is an excellent doctor and always resolves issues with my back. I highly recommend Dr. Zakari.

Dr Zakari Do not go to him. His office is a junk yard and he and his staff are very unprofessional. my 85 year old father had a 11am appt. at 1215 I asked the receptionist, that doubles as an assistant, how much longer. She said we were next. She then moved 3 patients ahead of my dad. And there was still another person waiting that was there before us. the receptionist then went missing for 45 minutes. after being there for nearly 2 hours, I went back to where they were and asked how much longer. The supposed Dr. said he didn't know. I told him the sign in the waiting room said we would be treated with dignity, respect and on time. We received none of this. all he said was that I wasn't allowed back there. so we left and made an appointment with another Dr. and the receptionist at this new drs office told me that Dr. Zakari had to close down and reopen under another name.

I have been suffering with extreme pain for approximately ten years. I met Dr. Zakari through a mutual friend in 2018. He is the first Doctor to help not only control my pain, but almost eliminate it. I am 47 years old and with his help I am regaining my quality of life back.

It was terrible. He wouldn’t give my wife a time of day for her to explain to him what was going on and she knew what was going on and as soon as she would start to talk he would cut her off and tell her it’s all in her head that something is going on and sent us to the Er for the same thing that could have been done at his office. Now he is refusing to call her back because she won’t go to a neurosurgeon.

Excellent doctor. I went from crippling pain to none at all with his assistance. He looks at all aspects of pain management and is very careful not to overprescribe dangerous pain medication. Genuinely cares about his patients. I’ve always gotten an appointment quickly, and never waited in the waiting room too long. Highly recommend Dr. Zakari.

Great practice! The doctor and the staff are awesome! I was in incredible pain from herniated discs pressing on my sciatic nerve and after seeing Dr Zakari he had me on the road to recovery quickly. I was about 80% better after 1 week & it only continued to get better!

Alliance, OH – Jul 31, 2017
Dr. Zakari and his staff have l ways been caring and kind to me. They always listen to my concerns with pain and ask me how I feel about a plan for treatment. They always try to do my procedures with the least amount of pain possible and ask that I call or message them in a few days so they know if I am feeling okay. Excellent doctor!!!

Nannette in East Canton, Ohio – Mar 05, 2017
This doctor refuses to prescribe opioid medication unless you are terminal with cancer. If you are willing to have your spinal canal injected with the highly controversial epidural steroid solution, you will love this guy. But do your research, because arachnoiditis is irreversible once you get it and you will be in even more pain in your back after the arachnoid lesions form on your dura and your spinal nerves begin to clump. Please be careful.

Canton Ohio – Aug 17, 2016
As patients began getting scheduled closer together in and among his conducting procedures, communication and efficiency dropped drastically. The last appointment I went to I spent 2.5 hours waiting to be seen for a simple prescription refill. This past week the office was closed but no one called the patients that had appointments and I showed up needing my next month's refill and no one was there. He has given me the wrong prescription (dosage & type) four times.
