Ratings for Dr. Karim Ghanim
Firstly it's sad to see that everything has to be "Rated" these days, however here goes.... My wife was recently diagnosed with a fair sized tumour in her chest (between breasts) Dr.Karim Ghanim was wonderful reassuring her during our first visit. The surgery he carried out was impeccable, and whilst he did say a scar would be visible, this after only 3 weeks has already diminished beyond our expectations and may well improve further. We cannot rate him highly enough, if 6 stars were available that would be my choice. As for the staff and clinic, these again we're of the highest quality. Overall I would not hesitate to recommend Dr Ghanim's practise.
I would have to say this website is absolute rubbish and none of the incriminating reviews can be substantiated. I do feel however it necessary to give my review on Dr Ghanim following my recent surgery. First and foremost I found his receptionists Lynda and Dana to be very friendly, helpful and professional. Dr Ghanims offices at the Wexford Centre are well appointed, modern and spacious, a delight to be in. Secondly, Dr Ghanim is a very professional surgeon who I hold in high regard. He has performed surgery which far exceeded my expectations. I cannot thank him enough. I would recommend Dr Ghanim anytime. Please disregard all further rubbish that you may read below. As first stated this website has no credibility as no one is asked to actually put their name to these reviews. Mine however, is real, genuine and true.
Terrible surgeon, he has absolutely ruined my life! I went to him with a hernia after my 3rd c section and he did a botched keyhole surgery that did not help my hernia at all, i then returned after i was admitted to hospital at Armadale and unfortunately put under his care again he did a second hernia repair this time open surgery and ruined my stomach even more and then after that i was in even more pain and filling up with fluid and he just kept aspirating the fluid i should note that i was not even offered antibiotics each time he was aspirating my stomach and no ultrasound guidamce which should be carried out during the aspiration procedure i then had absolutely enough and told him to refer me elsewhere, i couldnt even get a copy of my referral too see what he had written because of his VERY rude receptionist at Hollywood rooms that abused me and hung up on me when all i was doing was requesting information that i was entitled too receive copies of. Now i have found out my second surgery done by him was also a botched job. He did not even read my CT results for the scan he ordered before doing my 2nd surgery he just went on in and placed more mesh over the top. When i was on the operating table before he had come in the assistant/nurse? in the operating room made a remark that he was probably just doing it again so he could be paid twice, he must be shocking to work with if this is what his colleagues will say about him infront of a patient thats about to be operated on!! I should have got off that table then and there and never let him touch me! i now live in constant pain i cant even eat without being very sick and the pain intensifies , he left me with bowel looped through the mesh which is very painfull and its a risky mess for a new surgeon to fix. Thanks alot Mr Ghanim! He should not be practising medicine the way he conducts everything is just wrong i can't believe he has even had medical training it is disgusting that he thinks he can get away with ruining peoples lives! I can't have a normal life anymore and i have 3 children to care for and im only 23, the state he has left my stomach in is depressing i have had other abdominal and keyhole surgeries and they didnt scar like how he left me. He should revoke his medical license and stop shunning people off and as for his receptionist she should not work in a job where she has to speak to people all day long because how she treats them is despicable!
Second time I've seen him, first time I took his advise (changes daily habits etc) with no change. Two years I waited before seeking another referral only to be rudely dismissed out of hand with a similar speech. Unhelpful and unwilling to listen.
Karim Ghanim caused my mothers death, the coroner is now conducting a full investigation into her death. a poor operation by key hole surgery caused this at the hands of Karim Ghanim. this is tell others of his poor work. visit the Western Australian coroner for more information as it comes to hand. The police have discovered thus far he is responsible for her death.
