What People Say About Dr. Saadi Ghatan, MD
Dr. Ghatan is amazing. A wonderful person and a gifted surgeon. He takes lots of time to explain things - and is ok when you ask the same questions several times. He's operated on me twice, and he's the doctor I would go to if I needed another operation. I recommend him without reservation!
