What People Say About Dr. Salam Zakko, MD
Reply
This is NOT about Dr Zakko but IS about his staff. More than 2+ weeks after my office visit they DID NOT contact my pharmacy with the script for my Prep Pkg, they DID NOT call me about when to stop taking my blood thinner before the procedure, so I called them & left a msg to please call me back with that info but THEY NEVER DID, my cardiologist faxed them the info & cardiac plan May 17th but never sent the info to Bristol Hosp until the day before the procedure. VERY POOR PATIENT CARE.
