Treatment was several years ago, but for several years and I have nothing but the fondest memories of Dr. Ghai and the staff at Lutheran general, particularly her RN. Took a time that should have been scary and made it a breeze while allowing me to have an input to my own treatment at a young age...Read More

She doesn't seem to take too much personal interest in patients, but she generally knows a significant amount about what she is talking about, and her advice on care is almost always spot on. Be prepared to wait 3-5 months for an appointment, though.

Dr. Ghai used to be great. In her older age she is not as friendly or on top of her game as she used to be. Need a prescription refilled? Call 2 weeks before you're out or you will go about 2 to 3 weeks without meds.There is never the same staff, so nobody knows you or your history. I am very upset...Read More
