All of my considerable fears about receiving radiation treatment for DCIS, vanished during my first visit with Dr. Zakris. I can now go forward, feeling that I am totally in excellent hands, and will have a good outcome. There are not enough positive adjectives to describe her. I feel very lucky to be in her care.

Disgusting dr! Sent my mother in law through radiation and wrote no meds and straight up lied and promised her remission when it was beyond that point. Almost like the dr wanted to torture her.

If there is the slightest doubt on who to see if there are cancer-related issues in your life, then make my words, the undisputed champion in your fight is Dr. Zakris. From her oncology team, some of whom have been with her since Charity Hospital, to her own level of care, she certainly exceeded any level of care I expected. She once told me, "I love what I do" and is evident in my experiences with my own radiology treatment for cancer.
