This Guy is only interested in your money never liked to listen patient concerns. Shake his head as if he is listening, but never pay attention to you, or your concern I was surprised to see all these so called reviews, bogus I will not trust not even one. Of course the office staff are good people.

Dr. Tarek Abou Ghazala is a great doctor. He is the best. He made my Mother feel safe and treat by a trusted Family member. People at the office are very nice, kind, caring and smiling which provide good atmosphere for the patients. My mother does not trust or listen to any advice except what Dr. Abou Ghazala recommends. He is very knowledgeable, professional and thorough. I was very impressed with the time, care and treatment he provided to my mother. My mother owes her life to Dr. Abou Ghazala, she might not be alive if he did not convince her to go to the hospital and follow his diagnosis and recommended the treatment. I am very grateful for Dr. Abou Ghazala. Thank you so much for all your effort and your staff effort.

Dr. Abou- Ghazala is very knowledgeable, but also humble. He answered all my questions and explained my issues in a way I could understand. He treats the whole person. He is a true problem solver, takes time to thoroughly examine test results. Dr. Ghazala. noticed things on my test results that were missed by other Dr.s I would recommend Dr. Abou- Ghazala to anyone.

My mother is new to NoVa and had not found a cardiologist in the area. She went to the hospital with chest pains, and Dr. Abou-Ghazala saw her there for the first time. We were very impressed with him, and he spent a lot of time explaining the tests that he wanted to do, as well as the results that he found. We saw him once again at his office, and we have total confidence that he is an excellent cardiologist, as well as a very kind and caring person! His office staff is great also!

I find Dr. Abou-ghazala has a unique virtue . Not only he is sharp in diagnosing and treatment in cardiology, but he is an amazing insightful HOLISTIC SPECIALIST . I believe he makes a prototype, par excellence, of a physician so urgently needed for our healthcare system. A creative, cost effective and holistic skillful physician. Besides his professional expertise, his kind, attentive, and humble character makes an ideal trustworthy care-giver. Office team is outstanding & office is great.
