Patient Comments (1)
in Pontiac, IL |
Dr. Ganju was very nice and kind. She is very intelligent and experienced. I would highly recommend her. She went out of her way to schedule everything I needed for surgery the same day so we wouldn't have to make another trip up there before surgery. I will have my surgery soon and after the office visit with her, I trust her with my life and well-being. Will post again after neck surgery.
