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.

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.

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.
