Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Dr. Zaharakis "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. "
