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.

Even specialists specialize. One orthopedic surgeon might do nothing but hip surgeries, while another does nothing but knees. If you want the best possible care, it’s critical to match your medical need with the doctor who truly specializes in treating it.

Dr. Zakko's Care Philosophy

I listen to the patient the old fashion way and try to understand the basis for their complaints. I belIeve in reaching a diagnosis with the least tests and managing disease with the least amount of medication necessary. By virtue of my directorship of the Connecticut Gastroenterology Institute and Clinical Research Foundation, I have the opportunity to be on top of the most recent developments in the field which has proven to be of great help in serving my patients.
