03/05/14 5 5 5 5 I have been a patient of Dr. Gharib for over 20 years. He has treated my ailments, both physical and sometimes emotional the best way I could ever hope that a doctor could. He is patient, kind, and takes as much time explaining what is going on as I could ever hope a doctor would. I never feel rushed in this day of 15 minute appointments, Dr. Gharib sits with me until he feels I am comfortable with the knowledge he needs to impart to me. His office manager is also compassionate and kind and if something needs to be taken care of by her, I never worry that it won't be done. I am assured that it will get done in a timely manner. As I enter into the geriatric stage of my life, I know that I am in the best hands

22/10/13 5 5 5 5 Dr Gharib is very knowledgeable doctor. We went to him few years ago for second opinion on my daughter which another Doctor wanted to do Appendix surgery on her and Dr Gharib diagnosis was different and he saved her from unnecessary surgery. My family and I will forever be grateful to him.

20/05/13 2 5 2 1 Is not in touch with what his patients need anymore. Used to be a very compassionate Dr. but I have no idea what happened to change him. His receptionist, his right-hand person, wants to act like a doctor and read/decipher your results when it's complicated and the doctor should be spending that time with you. I've made an appt. only to show up and be told there must have been some sort of "misunderstanding" because the doctor can't see me. The referrals Dr. Gharib sends you to feel like back alley rejects. And you are the company you keep. So if Dr. Gharib thinks this his patients aren't worthy of any better treatment then he's not someone I can trust with me health. He's led me astray a few too many times and I've had it.  See Responses
