I've been going to Dr. Zakov for about three years. It is obvious from his bio that he is in the top of his field, but more important to me is his knowledge shown during appointments. I have two conditions with my eyes, which Dr. Zakov explained in detail. My initial visits were for consultations, testing and diagnoses, and he now continues to monitor my conditions annually, so I've seen him several times over the past three years. I would HIGHLY recommend Dr. Zakov and his fabulous staff!

Terrible bedside manner. Wouldn't answer my questions. Very abrupt. When I asked why something happened he told me" you are not 20 anymore" when I asked if I should limit my activities he said" I wouldn't go bungy jumping". Asked a second time and was told the same thing. Scratched my eye with his "old school tools". Did not appreciate his flippant attitude. Told me he is retiring... probably a good thing. Cannot recommend. See anyone else! .
