Patient Comments (1)
Port Charlotte, FL |
Dr Gharai was very sensitive to my anxiety in the healthcare setting. She took the time to review my imaging with a radiologist prior to my visit. She explained everything about my issue with me in a way that I could easily understand. She also looked for alternative options and consulted with other specialists regarding my care. I would recommend her to anyone, she was extremely kind and knowledgeable.
