Dr. Yvonne Zaharakis, MD

Neurologist

Professional statement

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.

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 withme. 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 ofmy 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 symptomsshe 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 completely unprofessional and rude to me from the beginning of the appointment. I would be happy to discuss further.
