Patient Comments (5)
Orlando, FL |
Dr Zakari has been my hematologist and oncologist for the past 11 years. I have been extremely pleased with his care, research and custom approach to my diagnosis and treatment protocols. When the average doctor wants to jump to conclusions, he is thorough and doesn't hesitate to seek other specialist's input around the country to make sure he is correct. When I have had health problems, he digs in, solves and quickly gets you the right care. I completely trust him & highly recommend!

Randall King's review is spot-on. Take too much chemo, go die, and not a peep from Dr. Zakari after the fact.
in New York, NYcape Canaveral, FL |
He is the best Colon Oncologist in the United States. He listens and is patient with questions. Dr. Zakari cares about all his patients.
in Ocoee, FL |
Showboats with fluff info - any intelligent inquiry causes his fragile ego to crack and doesn't take long after that to become cocky - rude - and dismissive. All his diagnosis are based on rote memorization of text book statistics and flowcharts - which is a general gripe about non-customized onco treatments - but this explains why he is apathetic towards any questions about one's specific reactions/responses/symptoms. If you are given an unsuitable chemo cocktail, expect a shrug - go die.

Works closely together with surgeon and mad the right decisions
