Ashley Sawyer – Mar 05, 2021
I am the primary caregiver for my 87 yr old dad. My dad was recently discharged from the hospital. Due to the weakness my dad is experiencing it was simpler to do a televist. We were able to provide general history about what had transpired thru the patient portal and then request a televisit appointment. The appointment was great. My dad & I could both hear, talk to and see Dr Charkawi very well. The entire process was very convenient for my dad who just wasn’t up to taking a trip out to the Drs office. As always, Dr Charkawi and his staff were both patient, helpful and kind.

I saw Dr. Zach for PRP with the purpose of hair restoration. He showed great knowlegde at the initial evaluation, gave realistic and expected outcomes for the procedure, and has a great bedside manner. I had the 3-series procedure with a great outcome. Additionally, he used a new local anasthesia approach that made the procedure pain-free (one problem with PRP for hair restoration is that it is painful). As a licensed healthcare provider myself, I am a very educated consumer. And I would definately recommend him to anyone without reservation!

The Dr. and CNA were not welcoming at all. They made me feel really uncomfortable. I asked the Dr. about getting a prostate exam. He replies, "are you afraid of anything?" They never offered a follow up appointment. This was a really odd experience and I will not return.
