Learn about Dr. Zaharakis

Care Philosophy

Neurological conditions have the potential to make patients and their families feel very vulnerable. I believe that a physician's ability to recognize and address this is essential in the development of a successful relationship with patients. Aside from diagnosing  and treating individuals, I strive to empower my patients by providing them with accurate medical information, listening to specific concerns, and encouraging them to be involved in their care.

New York, NY |
Had a total EMG yesterday. It is supposed to be a very unpleasant experience. I have had flu shots that were worse. If she had said I had to have this procedure done every day for the rest of my life, to get rid of my joint, tendon, and muscle pain, I would have been happy it was going to be that easy. Maybe she is just brilliant?

I had her getting my EMG done for complicated fracture/shoulder injury with NCV performed for humeral fracture. It was a painful procedure but she was quick and proficient which really helped. From what I can tell most of the time Neurologist have their hand tied and cannot provide operative care but she wouldn't take no for an answer. She ordered multiple test/MRIs in addition to original scans to find out what is causing my disability; and refers to specialist to care for continued care.
I really liked Dr. Zaharakis during my appointment and consultation. She recommended that I get a MRI based on my symptoms. I had the MRI over a month ago and have never heard from her on my results. I've left messages for her with her assistant Liz, and asked for my results to be mailed to me. When I read the results, I found something that was questionable and concerning, yet I can't get a hold of the dr to discuss with her. Her lack of courtesy or professionalism is very upsetting.

Doctor saw me pretty much within 10 minutes of appointment times. Always super professional and a huge help with completing paperwork needed for insurance carriers.
