Existing patients

Dr. Zaharakis completed her undergraduate studies at Hunter College of CUNY where she graduated Valedictorian of her class with a major in Psychology. She received her Medical Degree from Cornell University Medical College, which included international clinical electives in Athens and Vienna. Subsequently, Dr. Zaharakis completed her internship in internal medicine and her neurology residency training at the New York Presbyterian Hospital-Weill Cornell Medical Center and Memorial-Sloan Kettering Cancer Center. She then pursued a fellowship in electromyography and clinical neurophysiology at NYPH-Weill Cornell Medical Center.

Following her clinical training, Dr. Zaharakis joined N.Y. Neurological Associates where she practices general neurology and performs electrodiagnostic studies. While her area of clinical expertise is in disorders of the peripheral nervous system, she also cares for patients with a wide variety of neurological disorders.

Neurological conditions have the potential to make patients and their families feel very vulnerable. I believe that a physician’s ability to recognize and address this is essential in the development of a successful relationship with patients. Aside from diagnosing and treating individuals, I strive to empower my patients by providing them with accurate medical information, listening to specific concerns, and encouraging them to be involved in their care."
