I have been seeing Dr. Ghate for 3 years. During that time she has done an exceptional job managing my hearth. She insured that I saw the appropriate specialist for health maintenance exams and given me good advice when minor issues arise. Recently I had two major challenges. She outlined a strategy to deal with each. The first issue has been resolved. The second is on the way to being managed, but is something I will be with me for the rest of my life. I highly recommend her.
We strive to provide the highest quality in patient care. Thank you so much for sharing this story with us!

We love Dr. Ghate!! I have been seeing her for about 7 years as well as my husband and 2 daughters. She was at another practice when I first started seeing her. She ended up moving practices and moved we moved with her. She is always so pleasant and we'll continue to follow her wherever she goes!
Thank you so much for taking the time to share these thoughts. Our staff will pass along the kind words!

Dr. Ghate was sweet and polite. The wait time was absolutely unacceptable. I arrived 25 minutes early for my appointment but wasn't seen until a full hour after my appointment time.
We are sorry to hear about the long wait time at our practice. We will look into this and make every effort to improve our wait times in the future. We value our patients and patient satisfaction is our number one priority.
