"Unbelievably Great Everything went very well My son had many concerns, questions, and requests. He wanted the doctor to add some more tests than were ordered by my treating physician and that was right before the procedure, literally few mins before. I was 100% sure that doctor will refuse but my son still wanted to take a chance. To our astonishment, Dr. Zarif went above and beyond. He not only listened very compassionately but also asked his nurse to call lab immediately and find out. Luckily, 2 tests could be ordered right away by collecting extra fluid and 3 tests required some more blood. Dr. agreed to extract more fluid and I agreed to give more blood and so 3 more tests were also possible( total 5). Dr Zarif really impressed us with his compassion, patience, level of confidence and openness. Thank you very much Dr. Because of caring doctors like you world is still a worth while place to live"

"I usually don’t like to write bad reviews about doctors but this one traumatized me a little bit. I had a spinal tap scheduled with his nurse Maria who assured me prior to this appointment that the doctor was very patient as I told her I have bad anxiety during procedures. As soon as I was lead into the procedure room away from my mom, the entire atmosphere changed. He got short with me when I was confused at his directions. I felt so betrayed when dr. Zarif started talking very loudly and seemed extremely annoyed when I began to get nervous during the numbing part. I specifically asked his nurse if this doctor is patient. Before even offering any comfort he told me couldn’t do the procedure for me. He what I felt was raising his voice when I told him I felt pain. Just think doctors should have more training in patients dealing with anxiety. Both this doctor and his nurse Maria have absolutely no idea how to deal with anxious patients."

Data Transparency and Trust: Understanding WebMD Doctor Listings and Reviews

We know that finding the right doctor or provider is important to your health. That’s why we want to ensure you have confidence in the provider profiles and listings you see on WebMD Care. Our provider data is sourced from the physicians themselves as well as publicly available databases. Any doctor or provider who claims their profile by verifying themselves can update their information and provide additional data on their specialties, education, accepted insurances, conditions they treat, and procedures they perform.

All the physician and provider reviews on WebMD Care are provided by users just like you. Knowing these reviews provide insight into how other patients feel about a doctor, we maintain internal policies and protocols to ensure the quality and accuracy of all reviews. Providers are not able to remove or modify reviews on their own. Reviews can only be removed after an internal review by our customer service team.

We value your input and encourage you to reach out to our support team if you encounter any issues.
