    Dr. Ghaemmaghami is thorough and extremely respectful of his patient. He spent a lot of time reviewing the procedure and explaining different possible outcomes. After the surgery he was diligent about following up. A wonderful man and doctor.

    Dr "G" is the best surgeon I've been to, I've had crohn's since I was 17yrs old and I've had over 70 surgeries.Dr G has been through hell working on me. My procedure was scheduled for 4-6hrs and it ended up taking 12-14hrs. This man never gave up, He's very compassionate and caring and believe it or not this man actually takes the time to listen to the patient. He does everything to get the patient comfortable and back on the road to recovery. He's a no nonsense Doctor,if you want the best it hi
