Dr. Ghausi is by far the best neurologist. He is kind, truthful and caring. In fact I wish more Doctors would follow his lead. He has gone above and beyond to provide excellent care, listening to concerns, explaining best treatment options regardless if I agree or disagree. He's also open to listening to the patient. Dr. Ghausi is the only one I recommend. Our names crossed by chance , I'm extremely fortunate to have him as a Doctor.

Dr Ghausi is far from truthful. He is underhanded and should be removed back to his country is it Iran? His care stinks, his bedside matter is rude and abrasive. He outright lies to protect his fellow doctor. He does not know pharmacology.Alvarado hospital is perfect for him as who else would tolerate his arrogance
