Dr Zakarija's mannerisms put me at ease, listened and answered my questions and she took the time to explain the testing that she ordered. Additionally, Dr Zakarija informed me of the next possible treatment that would be prescribed based on the results of the tests she was ordering. Dr Zakarija even asked me if I had any questions at the conclusion of my visit which is the first time in several years that any Doctor at NWM has asked me this question.

Dr. Zakarija was very professional and thorough. She took her time to read my results to discuss with me the next best steps when concerning my health issues. She made sure she knew all medications I was currently taken. I explained to her all of the side effects. She offered to reach out to my other two doctors at NW as well as my primary doctor in Indiana to make sure they are aware what's going on with me to determined what should be done to resolve my health issues. I appreciate her for doing that. It shows that she wants and knows that everybody involved in my care team should be aware and work together to do what's best for me. Good job Dr. Zakarija!!
