No exam was done. She sat in a chair during the entire exam, then told me she was "Running late and had to go". No stethoscope was ever used and no exam was ever done.

Yes, I would certainly recommend Dr. Ghate to my friends and family. Every time I have had an appointment, she has explained my lab results or other routine tests I had, which has been very helpful to me. We also discuss present prescriptions and make sure they are up to date. Also, she is very friendly and anyone that is searching for a physician who cares for her patients can't go wrong in choosing her.

Dr Ghate has been a God-send. I’m in my 60’s, and as a new patient Dr Ghate discovered I had a sugar problem. None of my doctors back home had even checked my A1C. She takes a common-sense, fact-based approach, so has helped me in many other ways, including a realistic look at my weight, and helping me lose successfully. Thank you Dr Ghate!!
