I have been seeing Dr. Ghaussy since 2009 and having 5 auto-immune diseases and too many other medical problems to list, 5 spinal surgeries, mild heart attack, gastric bypass and the list goes on...he has been the most caring of all my specialists...listens, genuinely seems to be understanding and open especially since I am so restricted on what can be done. For him being only 2 years older than me...I do respect him a great deal when most of my care team are well over 60 years of age. TY Doc!

Dr. Ghaussy is a professional and personable physician who deeply cares for his patients. I've always been seen within 10-15 minutes of my scheduled visit. He is always friendly and although clearly a very busy physician he is thorough and articulate.
He seems knowledgable. He really tries to be friendly. Sometimes I'm not certain he's listening to me but he usually comes back around before the visit is over and answers my questions. He's very willing to try new medications and find the correct dosage. He, himself, has called me back before. That's fairly rare for a doctor to do that! He gives shots perfectly. No pain and in the precise place. I've seen him at least s dozen times. The only down side is the TREMENDOUS OFFICE WAITING TIME!

This man is an incompetent human being.
Uncaring and unresponsive to his patients.

I've seen THE BEST and the rest. Had more surgery than most. All my joints are artificial, except one - 3 lumbar surgeries. All due to excessive sports in youth and rheumatoid arth. His eyes teared as he spent nearly 1HR taking my history. If a next day apt. was not available he met me before hrs. His injections were painless 28g needle I think & magical. I told him it felt like he waved a wand over my knee the heat & pain left immediately. Not enough space. Could write 1,000 words. JOHN RICH
