Dr. Zakaria first met my Dad in October 2017, the kindness and care that Dr. Zakaria showed my 79 year old Dad was out of this world. When test results didn't make sense, Dr. Zakaria kept searching, he never gave up on my Dad. He became part of our family during the last 5 months. My Dad was up and down in his recovery, Dr. Zakaria always explained thoroughly my Dad's health status along with his care plans going forward. As a family we never felt out of the loop. Several nurses at Palos Hospital would say what a great doctor he is, that Dr. Zakaria wants to save them all, just what we wanted to hear! He really did try with my Dad, my Dad was very fond of Dr. Zakaria. We wanted him to save our Dad, except the Lord had other plans, he was called home on April 9th, 2018. As for Dr. Zakaria, I trust and respect him completely! He is committed to his patients, smart, friendly, compassionate doctor. As for my Mom, daughter and myself, Dr. Zakaria has become our doctor over the last few months. We thank him for his commitment to saving lives!
