I came to Dr. Ghazal with a broken knee and an overall sense of nervousness about going under the knife. I left his office feeling confident and excited about my upcoming surgery and can not wait to start my recovery process! I recommend Dr. Ghazal to anyone who is looking for a personable and knowledgeable orthopedic specialist!

Told my wife she is a drug addict after HE prescribed pain killers for her. We were both shocked at the way he treated her.

I will say first; The lady who check us in was nice. I will never come back to this location Ever!!! Arrives about 140pm (150pm appointment) but everything I saw said my appointment was at 2:00. When booked gal told me 1:50pm 230 called to back room 245pm did X-ray 331pm I opened our room door 340pm a lady pocked her head in and said one more ahead of you and shut the door, I re-OPENED the door... At this time family in waiting room texted me to said person who was called right before us has left.. funny because I heard doctor in room on one side and then heard skipped our room and went to other side.... 3:49pm doctors finally come into our room... Looks at my sons injury, agreed it looked bad. Looks at their new X-rays (which my son said they didn't do same as other doctor who found a fracture chip) doctor looked for seconds and said Not broken and threw his splint in trash and made a comment about "Some people just can't read x-rays" and pretty much walked out after answeri

I have been seeing Dr. Ghazal for over a year for a torn rotator cuff. I had surgery on September 26, 2019 and I am so pleased with my recovery. I had no real pain ever post surgery. At most I had discomfort. I am in physical therapy now and my shoulder feels better and my ROM improves daily. I just saw Dr. Ghazal 7 weeks post surgery and he was so amazed at my recovery. He’s an amazing doctor. I never feel rushed or stupid for asking questions. When he’s running late I don’t care because I know he spends time with patients and I will have my time when he gets to my room. I will be seeing him soon for a knee injury! Honestly I love this doctor!! God Be With You Always Dr. Ghazal!!

Worst doctor. He is so arrogant and does not deliver on his promises. He did a surgery to my wife shoulder over a year ago, which was a complete failure. she suffered from chronic pain after the surgery and her condition deteriorated so much. He even lied to us saying that she could not another surgery.. which was a false statement. When she went back to him to seek advice after 12 months of pure suffering, he basically told he to go a way and do not come back to him, since he has nothing else to offer. Well She just redid the surgery with another doctor and i can tell that it was successful one from the 1st day. the pain is much less and the other sergeant fixed a lot of the damage this guy did. I would never recommend him to anyone, not just because the failed surgery he did, but because of his dishonesty and bad advice he gave us.

I had my first visit with Dr. Ghazal today after I did my research and read the wonderful reviews. I wasn't disapointed. Dr. Ghazal was professional very knowledgable and caring to the issues with my knee and elbow.

He is very pleasant and I felt comforted by his knowledge of orthopedics. After my MRI he advised me that thwre was only a partial tear and physical therapy would take care of my knee. As far as my achhellies tendon it would be another 6 weeks of imobilized in the boot. Of which he didnt quite understand that I was not very diligentI in wearing when I was around the house. He told me immobilization for 6 weeks in the boot, which I hadnt Ben wearing in the hospital. Which carried over at home after I was discharged.and then pt. Maybe finding out why I didn't wear it for 8weeks prior becase Velcro is my nails on a chalkboard. I can nearly stand to hear it ripping,crunching ,crinkle or what ever you call that ear piercing noise it makes. I dont think I can do it. He wants it imobilized I would be better off wearing a cast. Exause the Velcro on that boot I havent been able to do. But I'm trying, anyway. Thanks doc

I suffered a severe tibial plateau fracture in 2017, which was surgically repaired. Since then, I have been stable, but with pressure surrounding my knee. I requested a consultation with Dr Ghazal to determine if I needed additional repair of my knee joint. Dr Ghazal praised the surgeon who reconstructed my tibia as having done a superior job considering how damaged the bone was following my accident. He was forthright in stating that I did not have any present need for a knee replacement, that I would continue to develop arthritis in my knee, and that I was the only one who can determine the need for additional surgery in the future. I greatly appreciated his honesty and "bedside manner". The entire staff were pleasant and cordial. Unlike a previous orthopedic surgeon I followed up with in 2017, I did not have to wait an inordinate amount of time to be seen. I arrived on time and was taken back within minutes of completing new patient forms. Very satisfied!
