Patient Comments (2)

Dr. Ghazi is an amazing Dr. He explains everything and will take the time to correctly diagnose and give you all available options. Its nice to see a doctor that is still excited about what he does. If all doctors practiced like him, repeat visits would be a thing of the passed.
