How likely are you to recommend Dr. Zakem?

(Select your rating)
I saw Dr Zakem today. He is very knowledgeable and professional. He speaks in a matter-of-fact tone, which I prefer, explaining why my symptoms have to be related to X and not Z. I entered his office with a list of issues and he reviewed them all. Being a healthcare professional myself, I felt that this doctor is very intelligent, caring and trustworthy. I would recommend him to anyone.
