Osburn, ID |
I was referred to Dr. Ganz for a brain tumor. He was very thorough and was willing to answer all of my questions. He also was willing to let me take the time I need to make the decision to have surgery. I appreciated his candor. Many medical professionals in the hospital said very good things about him and that he would be their choice for a surgeon. He is very professional and would recommend him to my family and friends.

Exceedingly unprofessional.

I sincerely believe that Dr. Ganz prevented me from being paralyzed for the rest of my life. I had a fall at work and after reading my radiology report, called me at work and insisted I go home immediately. I had several spinal and hip injuries, and workman's compensation was slow with their approvals. Dr. Ganz was very clear explaining my injuries. He does not have a warm and fuzzy bedside manner,but he does give you very clear and professional evaluation and I had a fantastic surgical outcome

I had recent surgery with Dr Gantz. He was kind, considerate and very patient. Willing to spend time answering all questions and went out of his way to teach and explain the process. He was personal and very caring. Best of all were my results. I had been in terrible pain for years. 6 wks out of surgery and I feel fantastic. His office staff are also very professional and caring. I would recommend Dr Gantz to anyone needing neurological surgery.

His bedside manner with me was fine I like direct people. I had a fusion that worked some what for approx. a year. Then the old pain came back.He felt that I would be in good shape after the opperation. When I went back to his office to see him all I seen was staff in a lot of confusion. Very disappointed.
in Sandpoint, ID |
I had 1 procedure with Dr. Ganz, & his care was outstanding, both before, during & after surgery. I will have another procedure soon. I read the review about his 'bedside manner' -- My spouse & I have seen Ganz many times -he can be initially quite formal & down to business. We have learned though that has a wonderfully dry sense of humor & is very caring. He is just very precise & confident-deservedly so. My other drs rave about his technical skill & judgement. So if you want the best, he's it.
in Post falls, id |
I found Dr. Ganz very abrupt and rude. His bedside manner could use improvement. He did not ask me questions or talk to me about any of my symptoms. He went solely from my MRI. Which I believe is half of the equation. He did not ask me any of the corrective measures that I had already taken to subside my pain. He went on to tell me what I haven't done or rather what he thought I hadn't done and what I needed to do, which in this case was things I had already done. I was very disappointed.

Dr. Ganz is an excellent surgeon and fixed my back.
