What People Say About Dr. Atef Zakhary, MD

I waited two hours while he continually had to leave the office to deliver babies at the hospital next door (they told me later). I sat for hours in a jammed waiting room, then another hour in paper gown waiting for my appointment. When he came in he had little bedside manner. He told me I was “this close” to having cancer, then refused to answer my questions because I started crying and he said I was too emotional. I did eventually have a procedure with him, and everything went well though.

This July of 2018 made it a year since I moved to Tampa from Miami. I became pregnant and was searching for an OBGYN. i googled just that and click on the higher rates tab and Dr. Zakhary Atef was the first to appear, so i decided to check it out. I can honestly say HE IS THE BEST AND I HIGHLY RECOMMEND HIM. I gave birth Wednesday ( C-section) which is my 4th, but first time he has performed the surgery and amazingly i had a great procedure done, his team were great along with the office staffs

Dr. Zakhary is a wonderful doctor, you may have a long wait but he is well worth it. The long wait is due to his care for his patients, he is the only doctor that will see you and does not send you to see another doctor you have never met before. He delivered my second child that is now 2 and now will deliver my 3rd. He is amazing and listens to you, he does not rush you.

This was hands down the worst doctors appointment I have ever been to. There isn't even enough room to write all the horrible things that happened. There were 20 plus people packed in the dirty waiting room. Bathrooms had no soap. We scheduled our pregnancy confirmation appointment. 2 hours after my appointment time they did my pap smear and then said I should have told them I was pregnant then tried to blame a new receptionist.

This was the absolute worst experience ever. We waited over 2 hours for our first appointment. My spouse was crying as the room filled up with over 20 patient, we counted. We were then rushed through, DR Zachary then attempted to do her annual in front of me! We were then told we should’ve made an appointment for prenatal instead of annual and they tried to say we couldn’t do the sono until I raised hell. This place is a joke and clearly the 5 star reviews are fake. I BEG YOU TO AVOID

We are happy to have met Dr Zakhary today and have chosen him to deliver our baby boy. He was highly recommended by several friends of ours who are affiliated with Tampa General and has a great reputation in Tampa. Due to Florida Blue dropping our former provider from their network we had to switch doctors at 37 weeks (most doctors wont accept transfers this late in a pregnancy) but the staff at Dr. Zakhary's office has been very understanding and accommodating!! Overall the insurance snafu turn

Dr. Zakhary is the reason that my son is here. I have a very rare autoimmune disorder and most doctors would hear about it and tell me that they could not see me as a patient. Not only did Dr. Zakhary welcome me but he was very upfront and honest about my condition (which is exactly what I wanted). I do not think it helps anyone to sugar-coat conditions. He was personable and knowledgeable. People complain about waiting but he is the only doctor in the practice and he is worth the wait.

I am new to the area from Chicago and was looking for similar top notch care and was happy to see that Dr. Zakhary had such great reviews. I was less than displeased when I went to his office. It was dirty and clearly patients were overbooked. When I was giving him my medical history he laughed as if it were a joke and his opinion was the only one that matters. When I asked him questions, he dismissed me. No one followed up or uploaded my results. I felt dirty when I left. DO NOT GO HERE!

Worst doctor I've ever had. He told me I had cervical cancer before he even performed a biopsy. He did not give me any details.Then 2 weeks later he told me that I didn't have it. He still did cryotherapy just to be safe but did not give me any details and failed to mention that you're not supposed to have sex or use tampons for 3 weeks after it. He told be to "be more careful" in a very demeaning tone when he knows nothing about me. He ignored another problem that I kept telling him about.

I went to see this doctor because of all the good reviews and I never imagined I was going to have such a bad experience. The receptionist was rude and demonstrated unwillingness to help at all times. The doctor didn't take the time to talk to me and really get to know how I was feeling and the level of pain that I have been lately. He got out of the office without making sure I understood and I didn't have other questions, had to ask him to come back and clarify things for me. Not going back

Dr. Zakhary is literally a miracle worker! He has been my doctor for the last 10 years and he is the best you will find in Tampa. I have had only high risk pregnancies and I am the proud mother of 3 awesome little boys. He responds quickly to issues and complications and gives personalized care to all patients. I would not trust my life or my child’s life to any other OB!
