Ratings for Dr. Leila H. Zackrison
I have been with Doctor Zachrison for many years and I have noticed an interesting pattern, patients who are wealthier tend to stay sick longer and her patients that are unable to spend $80 on a glorified sugar pill are usually out the door in a few short months. When I asked Z about this she claimed that they left because they were healthier and are now living happy prosperous lives, almost reminiscent of a biblical Eden as if her persuasive yammering is preparing you for a better life after you leave her practice only for her to blind you and pull you into a sick dark hole. Some of the medicine she uses is real medicine and some of it will just make you very sick, something to keep in mind she likes to overload you with pills, by that I mean give you enough pills for one day that in return could sustain a retirement home for a year. Non compliment. Ever heard someone say that enough times to make you sick? Talk to some of her patients and it literally is. She loves to throw that around to threaten patients she also likes to tell you that you will die if you do not do exactly as she says, now I am not over exaggerating when I say this she will literally tell you you are going to die. So what happens after she scares you with vague explanations of your own demise? Well you open up you wallet and call your mother of course. The thing is when you one day wander into a hospital with one of the dangerous symptoms she so wilfully pounded into you, you will quickly find out that the majority of diseases she pulled out of her magic hat to try and scare you are non existent, and yes I know you could argue hospitals look for more broad symptoms and illnesses they don't look closely at every atom and molecule that consumes your being and no they are not all Lyme disease specialists but they are not stupid either and neither are you. If you have the money to afford the life time pass on the Dr. Z illness roller coaster (upwards of $1 million) then you can probably very easily afford a good education do not left her scare tactics and used car salesman from Harvard approach throw you off, do not be afraid to ask questions, after a while the curtain drops and you see behind the smiling intelligent Doctor. The decision is up to you whether or not you want to ride.
I have been Drz patient for a while. She is an angel. So generous. I see all the negative comments about her. The reason she discharges you is because you are non complient. Nothing is free in america. If she sees you she has to charge you. What most of you don't know is how many patients she sees for free because they cannot afford it. She can't do that for everyone. And some of you say she let u go because you could not pay one time.....do you go to the grocery store and tell them you will pay next week NO...so why should she say OK to that. She is an amazing intelligent understanding kind doctor. If u think she is bad then don't go see her. She didn't beg you to come and see her. She is here to help people she works hard to hard. She is amazing and I love her.
Woman sells snake oil. Homeopathy has been scientifically proven hundreds of times to be utter nonsense. No more effective than a placebo, which is no surprise given that it's literally 100% water that this vile woman is selling you for $60 or $80. It's 2015; any doctor who practices homeopathy should have their license revoked. Do not waste your time and money with this woman. She will milk you for every penny she can. It is in her best interest that her patients stay sick, she extends her patients treatment so she can keep stealing their money with worthless IV sessions and a plethora of overpriced pseudomedicine. She tricks patients into staying at her practice even though they dont get better, baiting them with the notion that she's buiding up to an aggressive treatment and that the time where they start to see real improvement is just around the corner. It's painful to see her patients who have not gotten better after YEARS under her care and tens of thousands of dollars down the drain. If you want to get better, without counting on your susceptibility to the placebo effect, don't go to this doctor. Period.
I was a patient of Dr. Z for 7 1/2 years. At times I seemed to get better, but I am still sick. I've paid thousands of dollars doing IVs and taking supplements sold only in her store. She charges exorbitant prices to see patients. Maybe she used to care about her patients, but no more. My last visit was last week and she fired me from her practice because I could not pay the full fee at the time. I've been on disability for almost six months and just didn't have the money. She cancelled all my prescriptions, pulled my PICC line and fired me. After over seven years, this was the first and only time I could not pay. So now I believe she is only about the money. A doctor with only $ signs in her eyes and no compassion and no ethics. She did me a big favor! I know I'll get better without her.
I struggled for 3.5 years to get a diagnoses. Once I found Dr. Z I thought I finally found a doctor that was going to help me. What happened was I spent over $10,000 on appointments, IV treatments, supplements, and lots of tests in addition to having surgery and ending up in the ER - all of this in just 6 MONTHS. B/t prescriptions, supps, powders for medical shakes and tincture drops I was taking 52 different things/day. All of it was killing my liver, too many things outside norm on blood work and telling her how terrible I feel with major weight loss and nausea and NO sense of urgency. Keep getting IV's and taking supps "you'll feel worse before you feel better". In others words, keep paying $$$. I sat next to too many people getting treated for too many years that haven't gotten any better. She's not only taking people's savings, but taking people's health and I can't think of anything worse. At Johns Hopkins now, I DON'T have Lyme's like she said, only Lupus. FEEL SO MUCH BETTER
If you or a loved one truly want to get better or treat/diagnose an illneas, do NOT go to Dr. Zackrison!! She try to trick/force you into outrageously priced snake oil. Dr. Z practices HOMEOPATHY. Not only has there never been a scientific study that proves homeopathy does anything, but it is literally NONSENSE. The whole premise is that diluting substances makes them sfronger, it's complete quackery. She'll try to sell you a bunch of bottles and tinctures of WATER with literally no active ingredients. This whole practice is a scam; she should lose her license. She takes advantage of people desparate to feel better and treat miserable illnesses, all to make a quick buck. Her practice doesnt submit anything to any insurance companies, so dont expect anything to be covered when you go there. You'll have to pay hundreds in cash just to listen to this crazy fraud for 20 minutes. Please save your time and money and go to a real doctor (google "why homeopathy doesnt work" and read a bit...).
Dr. Z is the best Dr. in the country. I have been going to Dr.Z for six years, that may sound bad, but not after you hear my back story. I was an invalid and the medical community could do nothing with me or even diagnose me. I am now able to function and enjoy life again. Dr. Z gave me my life back. While going there I have met many, many patients, I have had long discussions with them regarding their problems and their treatments. I have yet to find one that was unhappy with Dr.Z's treatment. I have taken my wife and son, both for problems that the mainstream medical community could only relieve, not cure. Dr. Z cured the of things that the mainstream medical community could never even diagnose. I went to Dr. Joseph Burrescano for years and when he could do no more for me, Dr.Z took over she brought me up and up to new levels of health. Furthermore, she is a devoted Christian, not only in word, but in deed. I cannot recommend her high enough.
This place is an endless money pit. I read so many reviews on her and still went to her as a patient out of desperation. She did nothing for me to help my condition. I spent so much money for treatments and supplements (which she sells in her office that you can't find anywhere else) and if you don't, she threatens to dismiss you. She does not take insurance! After spending $100,000+ for these treatments, I couldn't do it anymore. I went to another doctor, stopped taking all the medications she gave me and I am now finally better. All Dr Z will do is leave you more sick and poor. This practice is depressing and great for those that want to sit there and whine about how sick they are and for those that really don't want to get better. So many patients left while I was there because they never got better. It took me a while to finally leave because Dr Z kept telling me she could cure me. This is the worst place you can possibly go if your mental and physical health matter to you.
