Neurology | Female | 43 years old

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.

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.
