DR. Zacharia performed surgery to remove a cyst from the third ventricle of my brain when I was just 23. Now 25 still going back every year to see him and his team, I would recommend this man to ANYBODY! He performed my surgery a week before scheduled ( he came back early from his vacation to do so) which probably meant my condition was worse than anyone wanted to admit, but him and his staff made us feel at ease, it didn’t feel forced, they were genuine. It sucked sucked going through this ordeal, but I’m glad I got to spend this time with Dr. Zacharia and the staff at Hershey !!! Thank you again Dr. Zacharia for saving my life, literally !
