I went to Dr. Zarif having a huge amount of anxiety over a finding on my mri. Dr. Zarif has been beyond wonderful to me and has reassured me as much as i need. He takes his time and listens to concerns and then responds to each and every question. He is knowledgeable, kind, caring and even funny. It is quite obvious he is brilliant In his specialty. I highly recommend him especially to people with anxiety like me.

I was Diagnosed with MS 13 years ago and Dr. Zarif is my 6th Neurologist. He is by far THE BEST I have had thus far! He is ridiculously knowledgeable, patient, warm and caring. He NEVER rushes me out of the office and genuinely listens until all of my concerns and complaints are addressed. I literally call him MY HERO. He has improved my quality of life in ways that other doctors never bothered to do. He is exceptional and I trust him 110% with medical decision and my life!!!
