This is the most insensitive and unprofessional doctor i have came across. Diagnosing someone with cancer and not wanting to accommodate them. Shame on you!!!!
in Hollywood, CA |
Dr. Zakarian waited a week before he informed me of my test results. Dr. has no bed side manners and doesn't know how to talk or treat his patients.
