I have found Dr Ganem and his staff to be very efficient at processing everything from appointments to procedures and studies to phone calls with results to processing prescriptions and return calls. There is a general air of pleasantness and appreciation for your selection of them as your source of care. Dr Ganem is knowledgeable, well balanced in terms of ordering test vs not needing them, logical in his thinking and decision making. He does all this while communicating effectively.

Dr. Ganem has an excellent "bedside manner" and I like the fact that he took all the time necessary to answer all my questions in detail.
in Mesa, AZ |
My arrythmia attacks began shortly before 2000. Dr. Ganem has effectively gotten and kept them under control at least as well as I could have expected. He also recently conducted the endovenous radiofrequency ablation procedure which already has me walking much better now.
in Chandler, AZ |
Has been my cardiologist since 1992. Always available when needed and would highly recommend Dr Ganem.
in Chandler, AZ |
Dr. Ganem was very personable and seem to acknowledge my concerns. He explained medical terminology. He presented himself to be trustworthy and caring. He was not rushed to complete the visit so that he could move on to the next patient. This definitely impressed me and the not waiting long periods of time to be seen. Finally, his assurance of availibility was the Ace in the hole.
in Chandler, AZ |
Very positive. Saved my life.
in Chandler, AZ |
