Dr. Ganem evaluated my 90- year-old mother when she was extraordinarily fatigued and weak. He was patient, kind, articulate, and most importantly, extremely thorough. He was determined to help her, and he did. We are grateful for this doctor! I highly recommend him to anyone who wants a knowledgeable doctor who really cares.

I saw Dr. Ganem for his vein institute, not cardio. I did have an US done in January on my legs of this year but never went back to have any procedures done/had procedures done at previous docs but didn't make any difference. He was very rude and stood with his arms folded in from of him near the door to the room and when I explained why I was there, (problems with rt. leg-swelling since 5/19) and was suggested I see a vein doc which is why I was there. He would not look at my leg and said I needed another US and problems with leg was veins not nerves as the first doc had told me - could be either of them he had said. Explained why I was there but didn't help matters. I WILL not see him for my leg pains. Will find another vascular doc and go from there. Might be OK as a cardio but I don't see him for that.

The Best Cardiologist....Ever! And his staff is pretty amazing too. From the reception area to the echocardiogram & stress tests, the doctor and staff are friendly, knowledgeable, and professional. The stress test usually makes me anxious but at Dr. Ganem's office, the staff member is incredibly calm, caring, and explained each step of the test. I was not anxious at all! Dr. Ganem is a doctor who truly cares about me and you can not ask for more than that!

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.

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.

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.
