Neurosurgeon joins medical staff — Dr. Peter A.

His office is located at 21 Reade Place in Poughkeepsie. Call 914-948-3008.
Zahos recently served as associate clinical professor of neurological surgery at the University of California, San Francisco.
Zahos completed his undergraduate degree at Yale University, his medical degree at George Washington University, his neurosurgical training at the Albert Einstein College of Medicine, and his fellowship training at the University of California, Los Angeles. He is a board certified neurosurgeon with a focus on the surgical treatment of spinal disease, brain tumors, neurotrauma and deep brain stimulation, a procedure that implants electrodes to regulate electronic impulses in the brain to treat movement disorders and other indications, such as Parkinson’s disease.
Zahos is joined by Physician Assistant Tara Ciccone Lent. She completed her undergraduate studies at the State University of New York at Stony Brook and earned her master’s degree in physician assistant studies in the Pace University/Lenox Hill Hospital Physician Assistant Program.
