Dr Ghamra was professional, pleasant and treated me as an individual. He was not rushed and answered many questions in understandable terms. He outlined the plan of care and future possibilities. He was aware of pharmaceutical costs and worked with my plan. The follow up was to be timely for additional testing and reappointment. The office staff were all very pleasant. It is a busy office and some waiting at front desk should be expected. But well worth it for the type of care received.

Poor bedside manner. Received my records when I transferred to a new pulmonologist. He documented that he discussed abnormalities with me, yet never did. Not invested in my care.
