Dr Ghogawala saved my Mom's life after a brain injury. He was professional and caring through everything. He sat with us as a family to discuss my Mom's accident and options. He did not rush us and was patient with our questions. He is an amazing man and Doctor.

Dr. Ghogawala was very helpful and honest about my condition. I have seen multiple doctors over 17 years of back pain and injury. He was very frank and honest, listened to my opinion and offered other options rather than jumping strait to surgery! Great doctor.
