Patient Comments (5)
Chicago, IL |
Dr. Ganger saved my life. I am currently in remission from autoimmune hepatitis due to Dr. Ganger's tenacity and professionalism. At one point when the disease was very active, I was given 2 days to live. That is because the disease was hard to diagnose at that time. Once Dr. Ganger and his staff "did what they do" (research, lab work, etc.), they acted quickly and very professional. Debbie the nurse is fantastic!!! I would recommend him with no reservation.

Dr. Ganger is that perfect combination of professionalism and compassionate care-giving. I have two sons who are also doctors, so I expect a great deal of any one in health care. He exceeded my expectations.

He is THE finest doctor and one of the most respected people I've had the special honor to know. He is the perfect balance between best in class expertice and truely authentic bedside caring. He gave me life, through his unmatched knowledge, experience and skill. He saved my life through the personal care and understanding he showed in me. I received a new liver as a miracle, within only days of diagnosed pending failure. He was the decisionmaker. 1,000,000 stars are not enough...
