I only saw the doctor twice, on my first visit and the last. In between I met with the PA. On the phone I talked with the nurse. I always felt rushed through the appointments.

Dr Zachary is a great man & I am blessed to be in such caring hands. He really showed the humanity of his heart when he came upon me crying. He very calmly & lovingly placed his hand on my shoulder & the calmness of his presence deeply reassured me, giving me confidence in the care he shows as far as treatment goes as well. Thank you Dr. Zachary.

When specific questions are asked, he tends to avoid them and gives an answer like a politician. I have a clear scan, but know from my own research the cancer can return, but when asking about it, as in the past he avoids answering the question. I just want a straight answer. His accent is strong at times and does make some of the things he says difficult to understand.

I am considering changing because of all the hassle getting an appointment. I can not recommend this doctor unless he changes offices.
