Dr. Zackrison is the type of doctor that makes you wish everyone you loved
had an incredible doctor like her. After falling ill and receiving no
answers from numerous specialists, I found Dr. Z. She listened to me and
took my concerns seriously. After running appropriate tests, she diagnosed
my illness that other doctors repeatedly overlooked. If it weren’t
for Dr. Z, I can’t imagine where I would be. Because of her, I have
my life back. I am able to continue with a career I love, and most importantly,
take care of my family.
…In 2006 I was bedridden, unable to work and unable to care for
my husband and two children. I had been to several doctors prior to Dr.
Z none of which were able to diagnose or treat me. I was diagnosed with
Lyme disease... It has been quite a journey since then. Dr. Z has been
there educating me about my body and treatment options, encouraging me
to be proactive with my health and sharing the latest research with me.
It is because of her support that I am now able to work and care for my
family. Dr. Z is an amazing doctor. She is always educating herself on
the latest advances in medicine and truly has a passion for seeing her
patients get well. Nothing lights up her face like a praise report from
her patients. I have been blessed to have her as my doctor.
She has been able to identify acute and chronic tick borne diseases, viruses,
bacteria and parasites that have caused my total disability. I have lost
my ability to work and have limited interaction with my family, friends
and community because of these medical conditions.
Dr. Zackrison’s drive and desire to help heal her patients is a courageous
act of compassion. Her tenacity to take on the most difficult and challenging
patients is a commitment to be praised, not punished. For me, I can honestly
say she has saved my life and given me a fighting chance to regain my
health and fulfill my God given destiny in this world.
Dr. Zackrison is a brilliant doctor who has been willing to treat those
many patients suffering with long term chronic illnesses who many doctors
have turned their backs on. She is well educated, well informed, responsible,
caring and compassionate. It is truly a tragedy that this is happening
to her as she should be applauded, celebrated and rewarded for her compassionate
and comprehensive care for those weak and ill among our population. Dr.
Zackrison and her staff listened and cared for my many diverse and difficult
symptoms and diagnosis. In all truth, she is an amazing physician and
my hope is that the truth of her value and worth will shine through…and
hope she can practice medicine for many, many more years.
Thank God for Dr. Zackrison! She has given me my life back!! Through her
treatment protocols for me, I am now pain free and enjoying life again.
She has dedicated her life to treating her patients when no other doctors
in my area even know how to treat Lyme disease.
If it weren’t for Dr. Zackrison and her NPs, I would probably be
in a rest home with “early onset Alzheimer’s” as other
doctors seemed unable to detect that Lyme was causing the memory problems
I was having. After only two weeks of treatment I had already regained
some memory and by sticking with her treatment program, was able to recover
fully. I thank God daily for having led me to her and I pray that many
others will be able to benefit from her treatment as I have.
Dr. Z saved my life. I was active duty Army back in 2007 and VERY sick.
The army misdiagnosed me so many times I can’t count. Finally treated
me for 28 days with IV ABs and would do no more…. The Army would
not treat me further and said there was “no such thing as chronic
Lyme disease”. I could either crawl off into a corner and die or
keep fighting. My wife ran into someone who had experience with the same
strange symptoms that I had and referred me to Dr. Z. She treated me aggressively
and I came back from the brink. I owe everything to her.
Dr. Z is an amazing doctor in multiple ways. How many doctors in this universe
start their day at 5 a.m. so they are thoroughly acquainted with the background
of that day’s patients so as to best outline their treatment plan??
And she is an outstanding communicator, welcoming questions and thoroughly
explaining her recommendations. If further tests or medications are required,
she makes sure you know exactly why. And she wants us to email her with
updates on our progress so she can monitor our treatment between visits.
Absolutely unique! It is a privilege to have her as my doctor.
I relocated across country a year ago to consult with Dr. Z after the best
Lyme specialists on the West Coast could not “crack my case”
and rid my body of this debilitating Lyme disease even after 6 years of
trying. With exacting tests and amazing insight born of her many years
of careful observation and experience, she was quickly able to identify
the underlying reasons I was not responding to treatment — and map
out a plan for my recovery. In all my 60-plus years Dr. Z is by far the
most scientifically brilliant, dedicated, and compassionate doctor I’ve
ever met. She goes to the nth degree to understand each patient’s
unique needs — her efforts are nothing less than heroic. I can only
hope she will soon be honored for her contribution to the field of treating
Lyme and other very difficult diseases, and not be maligned by “those
who know not what they do.”
When I entered her practice my health had declined so rapidly I left work
on disability, unable to function personally or professionally; largely
bedridden. My symptoms were too numerous to recount, was hospitalized
several occasions, and had been misdiagnosed and mistreated. Dr. Z has
been a God-sent. Where I had lost hope, I can see some light at the end
of the tunnel…
Dr. Zackrison is by far the most thorough, most dedicated, and most competent
physician I have had the privilege of having. I was very sick and frightened
in the fall of 2013 with multiple health problems that came on very suddenly.
Numerous other physicians, specialists, and emergency room clinicians
could not diagnose or treat the problems — which were multi-systemic.
Dr. Z performed extensive tests beyond what most doctors even know about
— and came up with a multi-layered treatment plan to address multiple
causes of what was going on in my body. I saw immediate improvements within
a few weeks and have continued to improve over time by adhering to her
recommended treatment plans, which she and her team have adjusted as needed
to accommodate my individual response. Had it not been for Dr. Z and her
team, I would probably be unable to work or function and still searching
for answers…doctors like Dr. Z who are dedicated… As a patient,
I have the right to continue treatment with the physician whose judgment
and experience I trust and whose treatments have worked for me! And I
plan to tell my Congressional representatives.
Dr. Zackrison is the best doctor ever!!! I had multiple diseases and she
got rid of them all!! She is the best!!
I was referred to Dr. Zackrison in 2007 for treatment for Lyme disease
and other auto-immune problems. She has helped me immeasurably –
from medications to resolve near failure of a number of major organs in
early visits to treatments leading to improvements in Lyme disease symptoms,
arthritis, and numerous health complications. Due to her efforts, my immune
system has improved to the extent that I can schedule cornea transplant
surgery to correct an inherited disease. Because of her unending commitment
to finding answers to health issues, I am still alive today. Thank you Dr. Z.
Without Dr. Zackrison, I would be 100% disabled if I were still alive at
all. I had severe rheumatoid arthritis. She found and treated every illness
possible and brought me to full remission. I enjoy a full and very active
life today thanks to Dr. Zackrison.
What can we say to make these witch hunts cease?
I found Dr. Z through an online Lyme support…and I truly feel that
she saved my life. Dr. Z is a caring and highly intelligent doctor.
My wife and I have no doubt that Dr. Zackrison saved our daughter’s
life. We were referred to Dr. Z by a friend when our then 13-year old
daughter was crashing hard. Despite positive Lyme blood tests, her pediatrician
and doctors at three prominent local hospitals said it couldn’t
be Lyme because she didn’t have the classic symptoms. We’ve
all encountered that nonsense. By the time we got to Dr. Z, our daughter
was paralyzed from the waist down and had a host of other significant
problems. As is the case for many of us, we could write a book about her
journey. But from the very beginning, Dr. Zackrison was frank, informative,
caring, patient – and gave us hope. … there were at least
two occasions where her condition was so acute that we almost lost her.
Without Dr. Z, our daughter would have died.
She encouraged us to do our own research and has sent us to other specialists
when she felt she was out of her area of expertise. Every decision made
regarding our daughter’s treatment was OUR decision, based on fully
I started seeing Dr. Zackrison in 2007 after being diagnosed with Lyme
disease and co-infections. I have know doubt that she and her staff saved
my life. She is by far the best doctor I’ve ever seen and I’ve
seen more then my share. She is caring and very compassionate. I would
absolutely recommend her to anyone. She has a special place in my heart
and I would defend her to the ends of the earth. God Bless you Dr. Z.
I saw Dr. Zackrison for chronic back pain that had worsened over a four
year period. At 45, I was walking stooped over more and more. No one had
been able to address the problem. My wife was in treatment with Dr. Z
for Lyme and suggested that I get a consult. Dr. Z’s approach was
different than those I’d experienced in years of seeking help for
the problem. The treatment worked as outlined and I have been pain free,
with full motion since that time — over 12 years. Since that time,
her approach has broadened, particularly in Europe.
Dr. Zackrison is the most informed, intelligent, caring doctor I have ever
met – and I’ve been to many, many doctors in my lifetime.
I’d been suffering for 8 years with Lyme disease before I found
Dr. Z. There were many doctors who completely missed the obvious Lyme
symptoms, but until I found Dr. Z, I was wasting time and throwing money
down the drain because my previous doctors didn’t know what they
were doing. When I developed debilitating RA symptoms, I finally found
Dr. Z and she has treated me for Lyme, RA and many conditions related
to Lyme that I didn’t know I had. I don’t know what I would
have done without Dr. Z, she saved my life. She is truly gifted and should
be able to use her gifts to continue treating Lyme patients using her
In May 2010, I experienced a sudden onset of muscle pain around the joints
in my legs, arms and shoulders. On June 10, 2010, I was diagnosed with
Lyme disease as indicated in a LabCorp blood test requested by my general
practitioner. He prescribed 6 weeks of Doxycycline. During that time I
was feeling progressively worse, and told the Doctor so at my third visit.
He told me that I must have something other than Lyme since the Doxycycline
did not cure me. He then gave me a referral to a rheumatologist.
Strongly suspecting that Lyme was still my problem, not rheumatoid arthritis,
I sought out a physician with Lyme experience/ expertise in the Washington
DC metro area. I found Doctor Zackrison and made my first appointment
in September. Dr. Zackrison immediately ordered a number of blood tests
to get a picture of my complete physical state. The blood tests again
came back positive for Lyme, and Dr. Z began a systematic treatment of
the Lyme, along with other co-infections that were present. It took a
year, but the protocol that Dr. Z used proved to be very successful and
the key to my health today. It is not an exaggeration to say she saved
my quality of life, if not my life itself. I hate to think what would
have happened if I had not found her practice when I did.
In August 2005, I became ill overnight with severe brain fog, fatigue and
migratory joint pain. I tested positive for Lyme. Over the next 5 months,
I was treated homeopathically and the brain fog cleared up but the joint
pain and swelling went systemic affecting all of my joints except hips
and spine. My joints were so inflamed I could not open my mouth to eat.
I was diagnosed with a severe form of rheumatoid arthritis and methotrexate
was recommended. Intuitively, I knew that suppressing my immune system
with methotrexate would kill me. I was inflamed throughout my entire body.
I researched and learned of infectious causes to R.A. I learned about
Dr. Thomas M. Brown’s research which revealed infectious causes
to R.A. Over the next year, I worked with a rheumatologist who was very
angry that I refused the methotrexate and requested low dose minocycline
instead, but he did give it to me. I also began to work with a medical
doctor who practices functional (alternative) medicine. These measures
were somewhat helpful but I was still very sick and inflamed.
Then in June 2007, I found Dr. Zackrison. She is a rheumatologist who believes
in ongoing infections as a possible trigger for auto-immune disorders.
Until finding her, I could not get anyone to run blood tests to see if
I indeed had mycoplasma and/or strep. Both of these infections as well
as Lyme have been proven to cause R.A.
Dr. Zackrison not only tested me for Mycoplasma and Strep, but a host of
other infections and I was positive for approximately 30 bacterias, viruses
and parasites including Babesia Ducani. We began antibiotics and supplements
and followed a diet based upon testing for food sensitivities. Within
7 months I was pain free and fully functional. It took several years to
clear all the microbes but during that time and to this day, I enjoy full
health and lifestyle. I ride horses, so fully functional means able to
engage in strenuous physical activity. My husband and I retired this year,
but prior to retirement, we owned an insurance agency and I worked full-time.
I have met so many others with rheumatoid arthritis that went the conventional
treatment route and not one of them is doing well. Their joints are deformed
and their lives are restricted. They live with pain and surgeries.
Thank you so much Dr. Zackrison for seeking and treating causes to my rheumatoid
arthritis instead of just treating symptoms with drugs that give me no
hope of recovery.
To the Virginia Medical Review Board. You fear that Dr. Zackrison is endangering
the lives of her patients, yet the drugs approved by the field of rheumatology
and used routinely are very dangerous with low success rates and high
risk of death. Enbrel even states in its literature “THIS DRUG CAN
KILL YOU. PEOPLE HAVE DIED FROM USING THIS DRUG.” And yet, you have
no issue with the lifelong treatment protocol using these dangerous drugs.
Many people do die early deaths because of treatment. Why then, do you
have a problem with the use of antibiotics and supplements and alternative
Why are you determined to take away a patient’s choice in how they
want to be treated? Long before I found Dr. Zackrison, I was rejecting
the deadly rheumatoid drugs and seeking a way to identify and remove the
triggers in me that were driving my immune system into overdrive. It was
my preferred way of treatment for my illness. Dr. Zackrison did nothing
to me without my full consent and she did a wonderful job of informing
me of the risks, the advantages, the options available to me and shared
fully my tests results and what they mean.
At no time did I blindly follow Dr. Zackrison or any of the other doctors
I employed. This is my body and ultimately my decision how I would approach
healing. I thank God for doctors like Dr. Zackrison who are willing to
identify and treat possible causes to illness instead of just treating symptoms.
Please, allow patients the ability to choose how they will treat their
illnesses. Without doctors like Dr. Zackrison, we have no choice available.
With Dr. Z’s protocol along with Nurse Practitioner Wendy and Dr.
Z’s entire staff – Iris, Misha, Jackie, and everyone else,
my pain, illness and blood work is almost back to normal. Dr. Z said I
could get healthy and I put my faith in her and her protocol. I believe
in what she does because it works. I am only on natural thyroid (armour)
medication and bio- identical hormones, no other drugs. I am indebted
to Dr. Z’s help and commitment to take the functional medicine route
to help her patients. Because of my journey with this kind of medicine,
I am now a certified integrative nutrition health coach and want to pay
it forward to help others get their health back, especially those who
had so many infections, they developed autoimmunity.
In the mid to late 1990s I was in horrible pain that had been diagnosed
as osteoarthritis, but about four internists and four rheumatologists
said I better get used to the pain and learn to live with it because it
wasn’t going to get better. Their only offering was arthritis pain
medication, which did NOT help. The pain was awful from the top of my
head to the tip of my toes. When I first consulted with Dr. Z she said
yes, I did have arthritis, but it was not the source of the terrible pain
I had. She explained that her philosophy of medicine was to find the cause
of a problem and eliminate it rather than just treating symptoms. I was
so relieved that finally one M.D. acknowledged that I really had pain
and was determined to find the cause.
She has truly saved my life several times when other physicians misdiagnosed
me (saying I had pleurisy when it was really a severe pulmonary embolism)
and overprescribed blood pressure medication to the point where I was
trying unsuccessfully to function with readings of 84/62. …I am
certain I would have died a long time ago. She must be allowed to practice
medicine using whatever methods she believes will help her patients. Any
other course of action is a major curtailment of the FREEDOM that we deserve
as Americans. Rather than being a backwater of stuck-in-the-mud antiquated
medicine, the Commonwealth of Virginia needs to be at the forefront of
innovative treatments such as those practiced by Dr. Zackrison!
Dr. Zackrison and her NPs treated my mother G.G. and were exceedingly kind
and understanding with her. Mother had come from a very large family (11)
and not had medical or dental care as a youngster so she was understandably
not eager to see any medical person. Even though mother was reluctant
to admit to having aches and pains, Dr. Z and her staff helped make the
last 15 years of her life better with appropriate treatments. Mother passed
away at 89. She was fortunate to have Dr. Z’s care until the day
when God called her. I am grateful to Dr. Z for her care of mother. I
am deeply disturbed by the uncalled for actions being taken by the Virginia
Board of Medicine against Dr. Z.
Dr. Z treats my husband Alan and has identified inconsistencies and inappropriate
actions taken by other medical personnel. Her superb knowledge of the
chemical properties and interactions among various substances has saved
my husband a lot of grief as he has a specific allergy that is troublesome.
His physical and mental health is very complicated with many inherited
issues. Dr. Z has been ferreting out all of these and treating them so
my husband has a chance to enjoy life.
To Whom it May Concern:
I am writing to share how Dr. Leila Zackrison has helped me!!!!!! When
I came to Dr. Z I was experiencing, in layman’s terms, over 200
tachycardia incidences in 1 and a half years. I went several times to
the ER and they could do nothing. I suffered from insomnia for 10 plus
years, I woke up in June 1992 with constant moderate to severe headaches
24/7, I had vertigo incidences, atypical seizures (as a neurologist called
them, my mind would remain clear but I could not hold my body up from
the neck down for periods of half hours, these alone were extremely frightening
with a new born and a 1 year old.
Since I have been under her care, my tachycardia’s have reduced
to extreme rarity with absolute less intensity and duration, I am sleeping
with no sleep aids whatsoever and my headaches are mild almost all the
time, with some moderate pain and absolutely rarely severe pain.
I am a work in progress because of the fact that I saw so many doctors
over a period of 20 years that did not know what was wrong. Even when
I was finally diagnosed with Lyme disease in 2006, they did nothing. I
was diagnosed positive several times after through 2012 by different doctors
with no one taking on the challenge to help me fight. But once I started
experiencing the instantaneous spike in blood pressure with increased
heart rates, shakes, dizziness, rapid onset of bowel movements, increased
head pain, hands and fingers stiffening up, facial paralysis, wheezing
and so much more, and instead of experiencing these horrific episodes
(which would begin all of a sudden while hanging out with mom, eating
dinner with friends, or watching a hallmark movie) every 3 years or so
which started in 1998, I started having them several times a week or a
few a day starting Jan 14, 2010, by a year and a half later, over 200
episodes, I said enough. I can live with all the pain my whole adult life
but not with this. That is when I insisted on seeing a Lyme specialist.
So you can see all she has accomplished, to take her away would be a huge
mistake. I cannot stress this enough. Please leave her to practice because
there are hardly any doctors out there willing to stick out their necks
and try to help people in our situation. Or there are not enough doctors
willing to go back to learn how to deal with these diseases. As one pioneer
doctor said to me once, “it is the most complex disease we have
ever experienced in the medical community”.
WE NEED HELP. I HAVE SEEN CHILDREN, TEENS, ADULTS AND EVEN PETS DIE BECAUSE
THEY HAVE BEEN MISDIAGNOSED AND THEN WHEN THE DOCTORS FINALLY TRY TO TREAT
LYME, IT’S TOO LATE. THEY ARE DEAD. THEY HAVE DIED. WAKE UP, THIS
IS A DISEASE THAT IS MAKING PEOPLE SICK, DISABLED AND WE ARE LOSING LOVED ONES.
I’ve been a patient of Dr. Zackrison for almost two years, and if
she will have me, plan to continue using her services as my physician
for the rest of my life. I respect her not only as a doctor, but as a
person of utmost integrity and the highest moral principles. That is why
it has been especially irksome to me to hear that there are those who
are questioning her intentions in treating her patients. I’ve never
met a doctor who has cared so much for us as individuals and who works
so hard to treat our medical conditions in the most complete and effective way.
I came to her to treat one specific condition (Lyme) but she has taken
all aspects of my health into consideration and has helped me with everything
from asthma to post-menopausal symptoms. Her recommendations are always
practical — she’s done extensive research so you know without
doubt that what she is suggesting is the best route to go. She’s
an outstanding communicator, able to give us a real understanding of so
complex a disease such as Lyme.
I earnestly hope her scientific brilliance will be recognized and valued,
so she can continue to serve all those who are so much in need of her
unique abilities and caring heart.
Words cannot express how much Dr. Z and her staff have helped both my wife
and me during this extremely difficult period of our lives.
We both contracted Lyme disease, became physically debilitated, and saw
many medical professionals to try and resolve the issue, but it wasn’t
until we began visits with Dr. Z that we actually began to make progress.
Dr. Z doesn’t treat her patients as mere numbers – she treats
all of them as real people and truly goes above and beyond to help them
in every way possible. She’s extremely systematic in her approach,
doesn’t give her patients more/less than is necessary, and she’s
always looking at the health of her patients from a global, long-term
perspective, so that she can help them not only succeed in the short term,
but for life.
I became suddenly ill, overnight, in March 2015 with a variety of pain
symptoms (peripheral neuropathy, back pain, joint pain, systemic tendonitis,
and an intractable headache) plus terrible fatigue and malaise. After
contracting mononucleosis presumably from Epstein Barr virus (both monospot
and EBV titer were positive at the time), my body has never been the same.
I had a headache every day for 5 years- the first year and last years were
In between those 2 years, I was able to work. But I couldn’t for
the first year- my immune system was suppressed enough for a year that
I had terrible symptoms and went from working overtime hours as an RN
every week while regularly exercising and being very active in social/family/community
events to being unable to work or exercise at all and withdrawing from
a lot of the other facets of life. That intractable headache was the worst symptom.
I think being on steroids for a few months that first year right after
I developed those symptoms may have contributed to immune suppression
and Lyme/co-infections becoming strong.
My symptoms improved for years 2, 3, 4 but then got worse. I met Dr. Zackrison
after having these symptoms for 4 years. She treated me right away with
IV antibiotics. Initially the headache became worse, but eventually it
disappeared completely. She cured the intractable headache with aggressive
treatment, and I am so happy and relieved. Thank you!
Dr. Z, thank you. You are not thanked enough for all you do. I came to
you two years ago a shadow of myself, a broken woman breaking more each
day, weak and desperate to get my life back.
Today I completed my second half marathon. When I crossed the finish line,
all I could think was “Thank you!” Two years ago, getting
out of bed was barely possible. Thank you for your love, care, stable
hand, and fierce determination. I am thankful for the education you have given me.
I wake up each day thankful not to be in pain, for the little things. Know
that your work gives life; I am proof of it. I am thankful for my health
because it is now giving me the ability to pursue my passions and spend time
with family. My family thanks you too for bringing me back to them
I became an invalid from an unknown disease in 2000. Doctors could not
find the cause. By the grace of God I diagnosed myself and began traveling
14 hours from home to see Dr. Joseph Burrascano, widely recognized as
the world’s foremost Lyme specialist. He confirmed that I had Lyme,
though I did not test positive until 18 months of treatment. Over the
many years I saw him I gradually improved, but had reached a plateau and
was still in great pain. When he closed his practice I was terrified of
reverting to my previous condition (which was worse than death). He sent
me to Dr. Zackrison. Her methods were very different than Dr. Burrascano’s
and I was very skeptical, but in a short while I could see she had an
insight into human health far beyond any doctor I had ever met. She not
only kept me from reverting to my former condition, she brought me far
beyond the plateau at which I had stalled. Her tender care gave me back
my life; gave me back to my family. Not only has her healing heart and
hand relieved my suffering, she has cured my son of problems that other
doctors could not. I have raved so about her skills that family and friends
have claimed her as their own and been cured of both minor and serious
illnesses that other doctors had been unable to cure.
I have seen her work early, late and through lunch to accommodate her
patients, and yet remain always cheerful, no matter the strain, always
patient, tender and kind. Dr. Zackrison could easily have more free time,
more money and fewer headaches by simply allowing her to be pushed into
the patient mill mentality possessed by the average doctor, but then she
could not give life, hope, and health back to those who desperately need
it. The injustice done against her by those who possess not one tenth
of the knowledge and compassion as does she, is an injustice to us all
who rely on her for our very lives. As such, this fight is not only hers,
but ours. We have been helped; do we now abandon those who come behind
us to the mediocrity of the medical profession? No, we each have not only
a stake in this, we have a duty; we cannot leave an angel of mercy to
fight our battle alone. Pray for her to have the strength to bear the
load she carries for us.
I contracted Lyme Disease almost 20 years ago. Until 2009 I had seen over
40 different physicians in the Tidewater area, received over 20 different
forms of treatment, and approximately 7 different diagnosis. (none for
Lyme and none were effective). As a result, my health continued to rapidly
deteriorate. What I was told on many visits was, “well you don’t
have Lyme because your blood tests are negative.”
Dr. Zackrison is a relentless medical detective who carefully and seriously
listens to the nuances of the medical problems and issues my body is presenting
during every office visit. She has the amazing ability to quickly understand
how those problems/issues relate to one another and to their impacts on
each of the major systems in my body. Through those relational understandings
and her extremely professional medical knowledge, she is able to design
and prescribe the best appropriate treatment for me. Every problem is
listened to and treated with the highest importance. I walk away feeling
like I am being treated with genuine care, concern and respect —
positive feelings of hope and healing. Dr. Zackrison takes the time to
make written notes for me so that I can refer back to them. Consequently,
I rarely have questions regarding my treatment protocol. I am blessed
to have the opportunity to have Dr. Zackrison and her staff supporting
me with the challenges of this insidious disease.
I came to Dr. Zackrison in September 2012. At the time I was an executive
administrator for a large corporation with a lot of responsibility. Unexpected
pain in my left hip, and knee joints were puzzling me. Certainly my 30
minute daily swim before work was not causing the problem. But my biggest
concern was my struggle at work with concentration and fogginess, it only
got worse. When my primary care physician informed me that some tests
came back positive for Lyme disease and that I should contact a specialist,
I wasted no time. Thus began my journey with the treatment of Lyme and
other problems that resulted from my immune system being compromised.
Dr. Zackrison took the time to explain the overall picture of my condition
and how we could fight back and regain my good health. At first I felt
overwhelmed; not only was the fog creating a problem, but I was in denial.
So, I started bringing my daughter who was taking some courses on health
and wellness to my appointments. She was so amazed at Dr. Z’s wealth
of knowledge and approach. Dr Z wrote down instructions for me and my
daughter took notes as well. We attacked Lyme, Babesiosis and other parasites
using pharmaceuticals, homeopathic treatments, and herbs being careful
to supplement my body and boost my immune system. It felt like I was at
war. Neither Lyme nor Babesia have shown up in my latest tests. There
are other issues that we are stilling working on, but, I feel like the
clouds have lifted and we are winning this battle. What can I say except,
Praise God for Dr. Zackrison and her team for their truly insightful approach
I retired in June of 2013 and I’m enjoying every single day. Again
– Thanks Dr Z!!
DrZ-Please accept these flowers as a token of my appreciation for what
you have done for me for the past year. One thing I know now is that a
disease may have a way of crippling a person but, it is up to the person
to let the disease cripple him. You are intelligent, vibrant and multi-dimensional
problem solver. Thank you.
I'll never know just how much time and effort you've dedicated
to my unusually goofy body and all of it's stubbornness.I just want
to tell you the appreciation I have for your dedication , time and hard
work to get me well before I'm too old to enjoy it.!
Thank you for your expertise, support, and understanding in fighting the
fight with me.
We are so thankful that God led us to you and your team when He did. thank
you for being such a blessing to us, and for taking the time to invest
in our health and our future. We see the hard work and effort you put
into learning how best to treat the human body and the disease/issues
we face. We are thankful for your efforts, as well as the improvement
we are seeing with your treatments. We are looking forward to continued
progress and healing with your guidance. Thank you for the interest you
have shown in us, and for the effort you put forth, both seen and unseen,
to help us get healthy.
J. & C.
To a good doctor!
Thank you for all so much for your help! I have made a lot of progress
and have been given hope that I can be healed from a difficult illness
– all because of you guys. I pray often that you will all make the
right decisions about us, your patients.
Dr. Z., her nurse practitioners, and staff: Your good care has given me
3 years now!
Love from W. L. R. & E.
To Dr. Z. and staff,
Thank each and every one of you for all that you have and are doing for
our family. Also thank you for your patience throughout the years that
you have shown. May you and your families have a blessed Christmas!
Dear Dr. Z.,
Thank you very much for taking good care of me again this year. You always
give me hope with your study and research into new techniques. I know
you put your heart into your practice and I know I am better for it. Best
wishes to you and yours for a healthy, happy and peaceful 2014.
All the best,
Thanks for all of your caring and support in 2013.
To Dr. Z. and all,
Thank you for everything. You are all awesome.
MC & T.Z.
You made a difference.
There are too many words to express how great I think you are. I'm
sorry I left your care the way I did but, it was too hard for me to face
you and say good-bye.
You will always have a special place in my heart Dr. Z. You are one of
the finest physicians and persons I've ever known.
I would recommend anyone into your caring hands. I will always have your
back as a former patient if you ever need anything. I wish you the best
in everything you do. You are awesome! And I miss your things!
All my love,
