I am a nurse of 35 years and took care of my mother the last 5 years of her life. She was originally diagnosed with Parkinson's disease and became gradually worse as time went by.Her neurologist retired and highly recommended Dr Z who did an extensive initial exam and immediately diagnosed her with Lewy body dementia which is very hard to get a diagnosis for and time proved her to be correct.Her treatment plan was spot on and my mother did well under her care.She is a true asset to your care.

3/15/17 - UPMC - If we could've left a zero grade for Dr. Marina Zaretskaya we surely would have. Bedside manner is condescending and abrasive. She lacks the integrity to do what she says she would do. Communication with her and her office is Kafka-esque. Stonewall and deflection. She does NOT partner with her patients and their families, rather takes the position of a bureaucrat - take it or leave it.
