Dr. David Zackon's Ratings
Dr. Zackon is a nice and caring person, very knowledge and calm Doctor, with very busy schedule. The clinic is very busy and the appointment usually takes 2 hours due to a series of test before you finally see the doctor.
Its a known fact by many that CRP which is an inflammatory marker attaches to fat and makes more CRP which causes more inflammation. The higher your CRP is the higher your risk of getting chronic inflammatory health issues. Increases risk of heart problems and cancers and the higher your CRP (C-Reactive Protein) is the lower your survival rate will be. Losing Weight will help decrease the amount of CRP your body is producing. He is not telling you to lose weight to upset or insult anyone. He is telling you this because he knows it will improve your CRP which will lower that inflammation number thereby improving your symptoms and quality of life. Weight is a touchy issue with people and people can be easily offended. When you are dealing with medical issues that are as a result of a high CRP it is so imperative that you get the weight off because it attaches to fat and get that number lowered. He doesn't have anything against fat people - He is honestly giving the best advice out there for your own best outcome of what you are dealing with. He's being hated for it - but honestly he is just trying to help you improve your own quality of life.
this doctor is an idiot. he is soooooo rude, so condescending and makes people feel like they are wasting his time. he should not be in this business if he doesn't want to help people. how can i give a negative star, because his not even worth half a star.
The staff at the front desk are very helpful and pleasant. It is a different story re the technician. He was rude both times I went. I am very short, under 4 ft and had difficulty reaching the test. He insisted I sit on an old beat up pillow. I have Lupus, & severe osteoporosis , breaking bones very easily and cannot get up on the pillow . I also use a scooter. He was rude, spoke harshly, didn't want todo the test and I insisted in doing it as I managed. He was annoyed that I had a scooter in the hall. So if you are handicapped, short, or anything else that doesn't please him leave or fight for your rights!! Dr. Zakon was great and explained any question I asked and sent the results to my Dr. Immediately. The one staff terrible not the rest
I'm sure he's very knowledgeable, but he doesn't take the time to answer questions, and seems annoyed that a patient would even ask anything. The front desk staff is really nice, but I found the staff doing some of the tests to be a bit abrupt.
