Beware! I am 65 years old and I live in constant pain. At my original appointment I handed him the huge folder of records, MRIs, etc. that I had brought from my previous doctors and he glanced at them and shoved them back at me. I brought all my medications with me and went over them with both "Dr." Zachery and his tech. Nothing was said at the time about my pain medications. I was scheduled for a back injection with only an x-ray for him to go by, AND I was supposed to be fully sedated for it. Finally....when I called for refills, I was told rudely that I was "not a candidate" for the pain medications I have taken for years, based on the records he DID NOT LOOK AT. Then he called my new primary care physician and told HER I was "not a candidate" for my pain medications. I cancelled the x-ray and injection appointments and dropped him. I would not recommend "Dr." Zackary to anyone.

Felt like I was being tried for a crime. So many rules and so many papers to sign. If you need pain medication make sure you live a clean perfect life, they can drug test you and even count your pills. Doctors went from giving me 75 pills for a sore shoulder to giving me nothing , doesn't matter how much pain you are in. Also don't be late or they will not see you, still I was 30 minutes early waited an hour and left, double standard. If you need to use the restroom you have to ask permission. They treat you like family they say, no thanks.

I have had the most positive experiences with Dr. Zackary and his staff. They are down to earth, straight forward, and no nonsense. He has genuine concern for his patients and works to find the best possible solution. I highly recommend Dr. Zackary.

Worst experience I ever had. He and his RN would get very belligerent if I ask questions a year to get any test done or to see a surgeon. Gave me medication that made me so sick I was vomiting every morning. When I told him. The response was not his problem. Tried to convince me that injections was my only option. Had several from his office did not work. The RN Lisa was so rude. Would walk out of room if I asked to many questions. Would tell me I was lying about where my pain was.

My experience with this office was very negative. They were dishonest with me about asking insurance for approval for treatment. They said they were waiting to hear from insurance company and when I called the insurance company they had no request and this was five days after visit. They're suppose to ask for referral to surgeon for me and they didn't do that either.. Very unprofessional support staff. They are not interested in being at all helpful. I would not recommend this practice

As a personable doctor, he's great. But I called on weds to get pain meds filled for Friday which would be fillable on Sunday & would be out. I was told on Friday at 4:00 he would have to see me first. First available would be the following Thursday. Which means I would be without for 5 days. When you go without that long, your body will go through withdrawls, let alone the pain in my neck & back which is going to be excruciating. This to me is very unprofessional & uncalled for.

He is down to earth, common sense doctor as well as all his medical training. I am very pleased with Dr Zackary and his staff. They have always been very kind and caring with me. I feel better with getting epidural steroid injection and taking less medication, then I did taking more medication with other doctors and their nerve blocks.....Dr Zackary and his staff is AWESOME when it comes to getting nerve blocks, the best I've ever experienced.

More concerned with red tape then patient health. Two different occasions left in pain. Workman comp lady will retaliate if argued point. Dr Zachary appears to be alright. But don't know who influenced his staff. My legs are killing me. Claim was granted quickly but the office cancelled appointment. Re scheduled later. Medicine not the problem but injections
