Dr Wisam Zakko has been my doctor for about 20 years...He is amazing...gentle and great at what he does.....since I am seeing him, my colonoscopies and endoscopies have all been painless during and after procedures . I had a friend go to him and he said he never had a painless colonoscopy like this. with other doctors and I agree...God Bless him...he is the best...

Routine colonoscopy appointment took over a month to schedule. I arrived 30 minutes in advance as instructed to complete paperwork. I waited over an hour after the appointment time for initial consultation. Actual colonoscopy could not be scheduled for over a month from consultation. First instructed to be at Imperial Point hospital at 9am on day of procedure. Monday before exam, told to be there at 8:30am. 4 hours! later procedure began. No warning, no information, no apology NOTHING unprompted

As long as you have very good insurance and aren't actually ill, he may be a good doctor. However, after a Colonoscopy and Endoscopy, my follow up appointment was CANCELLED by his office, after THEY scheduled if because he was "on vacation". Hmmm....wouldn't you know that prior? Also, developed some additonal issues, i.e, bleeding ever time having a bowel movement. Tried to get an appointment, had to wait THREE weeks, then upon arrival today, they inform me that I need a "referral" form.
