Los Angeles, CA |
I had been to a number of doctors in the area prior to making my appointment with Dr. Ghatan who was the first and only to precisely diagnose the cause of the chronic aching in my stomach. He was incredibly professional, patient and warm -- made me feel like he had all the time in the world for me. I am very glad to have been referred to Dr. Ghatan, and I will certainly pay it forward, referring him to my friends and family. D.

Dr. Ghatan is very analytical and if he is not completely familiar with a subject he will be by the next appointment.
