Verified Patient Reviews
Dr Zaharakis, along with the entire staff, is always so courteous and kind. Always. The first apt I had at the office I was in a lot of pain and was less than charismatic. Everyone was incredibly patient and kind with me. Dr Zaharakis always listens and answers my questions and I never feel rushed.
Dr. Zaharakis was very thorough, and made a great impression. She clearly explained the issue and potential causes. I feel very comfortable with the advice she gave, and intend to see her for follow-up and any future issues. Her assistant was also extremely friendly and professional.
Doctor Zaharakis was very professional. I've seen two other Neurologist since being Diagnosed with Myasthenia Gravis. I was surprised to learn that Dr. Diego Herbstein, the first Dr. I saw was her partner. I was very happy with the results of my visit with Dr. Zaharakis, and am looking forward to my next visit.

Dr. Zaharakis has horrible bedside manner which makes it a stressful endeavor to seek answers for an already stressful situation. If your brain isn't functioning to it's fullest capabilities and you're having a hard time explaining your symptoms she bulldozes right through you, cuts you off when you are talking, and generally gives an air of "I don't care". Her medical assistant was incredible, very helpful and caring with a sense of humor. I'm not sure if Dr. Zaharakis is an excellent doctor in terms of intellect but I'm not sticking around long enough to find out.
She was very thorough, nice and pleasant. I was pleased with her office staff they were very helpful and really nice to me. I have to take several tests for her to determine what is wrong with me.
THE STAFF WAS WONDERFUL, KIND AND HELPFUL. THE DOCTOR WAS KNOWLEDGEABLE AND LISTENED TOO ALL MY WORRIES. IN ALL, A GREAT EXPERIENCE. I CAN RECOMMEND DR. ZAHARAKIS, AND HER STAFF, WHOLE HEARTEDLY. HOPE ARE VISIT IS AS NICE AS MINE WAS, I'M SURE IT WILL BE SO.
She was completely unprofessional and rude to me from the beginning of the appointment. I would be happy to discuss further.
Thorough and comprehensive.

Dr. Zaharakis was very kind and thorough as we are trying to figure out my diagnosis. She was empathetic and step-wise in her approach. I'm very glad I chose this physician
She was quite good, heard me patiently and diagnosed the ailment - without making me go through lot of tests.
She was focused, professional, and thorough. My issue was relatively routine but she ordered an MRI and additional tests to confirm how best to treat.
Super polite and friendly doctor. She was very attentive and very good about discussing and explaining everything that was going on. I couldn't recommend her more. I will refer all my colleagues to her.
Good bedside manner she took her time asked questions, staff was pleasant.
